We are in some unprecedented times, and there are lots of things out of our control. However, the one thing we can help you with is your smile. While you may have plaque, broken, or chipped teeth, you do not have to live with it. We can help talk about options, opportunities, and other information you may need. It can be stressful when your smile does not look the way you want it to, but you do not have to live with it.

The nice thing about modern dentistry is that you have choices. At times it can feel like things are running out of your control, but your smile is something you can make decisions about based on your needs.

You can schedule a time to sit down with our team and consult. We'll talk about what concerns you have, what you might be interested in getting done, and then we'll take a look and evaluate the overall health of your smile. From there, we can come up with a plan that meets your dental needs. For more information, contact Dr. Judy Strutz and her team today. We'd love to help you reach your smile goals.

Manuel or Electric Toothbrush?

While we have been reeling from the impact of COVID-19, and dental offices have not seen patients, your dental health must be still taken care of. But with all the information on dental health, what is the best system?

A manual toothbrush can provide a tried and true clean you need. However, the electric toothbrush depending on which; one you go with might provide a timer, superior plaque removal, and the ability to ensure your teeth are clean. While the research is still out on whether an electric or manual toothbrush is better, one thing is for sure, brushing is essential to ensure your smile is healthy.

No matter the toothbrush you go choose, you want to brush in gentle circles for at least 2 minutes. You want to avoid brushing too hard and be sure that the toothbrush head fits comfortably in your mouth.

While it can be difficult to reach the inside of your molars or the side closest to your cheek, not allowing plaque to build up in these hard to reach spots is imperative to having a healthy smile.

For more information on your dental health, contact Dr. Judy Strutz and her team today.

You Deserve The Best Smile!

While people may think their bodies' health is more important than their dental health, however, your dental health is a direct reflection of your overall health. While the food you eat can negatively impact your health it can impact your dental health as well. Here are 4 rules to keep your smile healthy. 

  1. Drink water. I'm sure you hear this all the time. Every time you turn around there is a magazine, blog, or other written form that talks about how your consumption of water is the key to your health. Water is fantastic for your smile too. It rinses food from sticking to the enamel on your teeth to decrease the risk of decay. 
  2. Eat vegetables. Vegetables contain a high concentration of water, and because they are low in carbohydrates they do not stick to your teeth. 
  3. Brush, floss, and rinse with at least water. You want to brush and floss your teeth every day. You have to be able to take care of your smile. This is the best way to do it. 
Take care of your smile. If you need help, reach out to us. We're here to ensure you can show your smile to the world.

Take Care Of Yourself!

There are so many things you can do in your home right now in order to keep your health up and you on the right track. Each one of these small habits can improve your overall mood, which can improve your overall health. Let me ask you? Have you struggled to remember to brush your teeth every day or to floss? While these things seem small, they make a large difference for the overall health of your smile. So, what habit do you need to change? Or what small change do you need to make?

Let’s break it down.

What time do you wake up in the morning? Before doing anything else, step in the bathroom, grab your toothbrush, set your timer, and brush for 2 minutes. You want to be sure to gently brush in circles gently.

This brings me to habit #2. You want to brush gently. Gentle circles help to keep your gums in great shape. If you brush too vigorously it can break down and damage your gums.

Once you have completed brushing in each of the four quadrants, play your favorite song, listen to a book on your phone or download your favorite podcast and begin to floss. You want to gently floss between each one of your teeth. Flossing is the best thing you can do for your gums.

These two things can improve your dental health, which can improve your physical health and when you feel good physically, you can change your overall mood. It doesn’t take a drastic change just a small habit change. For more information about healthy habits contact, Dr. Judy Strutz and her team.
