Are You In The Know?

With the world around us, it can be easy to think that you have all the information about your smile, but do you have the facts about how to prevent dental decay and keep your smile healthy? There is so much information floating out there at times it can be over whelming and feel that there is no way you will ever really be able to discern the facts from the opinions. Dr. Judy Strutz and her team are here to help. Here are 3 tips on how you can keep your smile healthy without getting bogged down by too much information.

1.     Always brush and floss. There is no other single activity that will keep your smile healthy. Brushing removes food from the surface of your teeth before it turns into sugar which turns into plaque and causes cavities and other problems. While flossing is essential for gum health.
2.     Eat healthy foods. Foods that are healthy have the ability to keep your smile healthy by keeping food from sticking to your teeth. Think about the rich, juicy flavor you get when you bite into that piece of watermelon. All of that juice is helping to remove food from your teeth. On the other hand, think about eating a piece of bread. As it mixes with your saliva, it may stick to the surface of your teeth making it more difficult to wash off.
3.     Visit the dentist, this is critically important and no other single task can help prevent problems from rising more than this easy step. Your dentist is your friend. She can help diagnose problems as well as fix problems before they become worse.

Throw Your Dentures To The Wind

Do you hate your old dentures? Do you worry about them slipping, falling or shifting during  inopportune times? No more! Now is the time for you to get rid of your old dentures and move into the summer with a new set of fixed dentures. Fixed dentures allow you to smile when you want, eat what you want, and don’t require you to spend extra time ensuring they are going to stay in your mouth.

Fixed dentures have been around for a while and offer patients a new option for creating a beautiful and healthy smile. You have the ability when you wear fixed dentures to brush and floss just like you did with your natural teeth. It creates an opportunity for spontaneous fun and doesn’t require time in the bathroom or time securing them before you go out. And in most cases, insurance will cover some of the cost of these fixed dentures.

Another benefit of fixed dentures is the overall benefit to your jaw health. When you have traditional dentures, they can wear down your jaw bones, causing more severe problems later on. But fixed dentures help to keep your jaw bone healthy and allow it to provide support to your smile, all of which helps to preserve the contour of your face.

Ask Dr. Judy Strutz and her team if you are candidate for fixed dentures and start living your healthy smile life today.

Meet Your Health Where The Problem Starts

Too many times we think that something must be wrong with our body when we get a cold or when there are aches and pains. However, your health problems may be starting with your gums and the health of your smile, not your body. Periodontal disease and tooth decay are one of the most treatable and preventable diseases and yet, too many people in the United States are not taking care of their smile.

Periodontal disease causes inflammation and bleeding in the gums, but did you know it is also an infection? This infection, when left untreated, causes your body to go into overdrive attempting to fight off the problem. The longer you go untreated, the more damage that can be done. It is critical to your health that you take care of dental problems, decay, broken or cracked teeth immediately to avoid further dental problems as well as more extensive health problems.

Not only do these common dental problems lead to health issues, people report that their self-confidence is lowered by an unhealthy smile and bosses around the United States share that a healthy smile is one of the first things they look for when interviewing. Don’t wait a second longer, get the healthy smile you deserve by contacting Dr. Strutz and her team.
