Spacing Issues Are Fixable with the Right Types of Treatment
Posted on 6/20/2018 by Posh Dental
Having a great smile is a goal most people have and can boost your confidence. When you have gaps between your teeth, this can make you self-conscious and make you stop smiling, but spacing issues are fixable with the right types of treatment. Whether you have lost some teeth due to decay or because they have been extracted, the space left in between the teeth can make other pieces shift and look crooked. Here are some ways in which we can help you have that perfect smile that you have always dreamed about. Bridges or Crowns A treatment solution with crowns or bridges can sometimes be invasive and require anesthesia, our dentist can recommend either one depending on your situation. During this process, your tooth is extended from its center to fill the gaps on either side. Veneers This is the preferred method for patients because veneers are less invasive than bridges and crowns. In order to treat spacing issues with veneers, the dentist will use composite, as it can be made to match the exact shade of your natural teeth. Braces Almost every teenager you know has or has had braces in the past. It seems the use of braces has increased exponentially in the U.S., where people are more concerned about having a perfect smile. While this is an effective treatment for spacing issues, it can be expensive, and most insurance companies only cover a minimal amount of the cost. In recent years, invisible braces have become extremely popular, but they are also more expensive than the standard type. If you have always been uncomfortable smiling widely because you have gaps between your teeth, spacing issues are fixable with the right types of treatment. Please ask our staff to discuss your options at your next check-up....

Slowly Increasing How Long You Oil Pull Can Get You Better Tolerance
Posted on 6/10/2018 by Posh Dental
If you have decided that you will start incorporating this into your oral care habits slowly increasing how long you oil pull can get you better tolerance. In addition, choosing a flavor that you enjoy can make the experience more tolerable. Oil pulling is the practice of swishing vegetable oil in your mouth for 20-minutes. That is a long time to be swishing a liquid. Your jaw may get tired and sore from the movement and you may have trouble swallowing, since you need to avoid ingesting the oil along with the bacteria in it. How Long Should I Oil Pull at First? Swishing an oil in your mouth for 20-minutes is not easy and the first time you oil pull it may be challenging. If you're on a quest for better oral health, oil pulling may be for you. For better tolerance, you can start by oil pulling for five-minutes and then slowly increase the time until you reach 15 to 20-minutes of swishing. Use about one tablespoon of vegetable oil. How Does Oil Pulling Help Oral Health? Oil pulling is a relatively new thing in the U.S., but it has been used for centuries in other cultures. According to its proponents, oil pulling works because the oil literally grabs bad bacteria from your mouth and activates enzymes that can help detoxify your entire system. People who have been oil pulling for a while insist that the practice helps them with migraines, asthma, headaches, hormonal disorders, tooth disease, and many other conditions. If you want to try it, slowly increasing how long you oil pull can get you better tolerance and make your mouth feel fresh and healthy. Let us know if you are oil pulling and if you think you're getting benefits from it....

Snacks to Keep with You When Traveling that Your Teeth Will Love
Posted on 5/20/2018 by Posh Dental
Just because you are on the go doesn't mean that you can't eat a healthy snack. There are many options that will fill your stomach while protecting your mouth. While some of them might take a bit of preparation beforehand, your teeth will thank you for it later. Sliced Vegetables The next time you've got a road trip ahead of you, consider cutting up some celery or carrots ahead of time. These crunchy vegetables increase saliva in your mouth, which reduces cavity risk. The fibers act like a toothbrush to scrape away food. Plus, they are high in vitamin A, which helps to keep the teeth and gums healthy. Almonds Almonds are an excellent snack for oral health. These nuts are a good source of protein and calcium, and they are relatively low in sugar. Apples There's nothing more convenient than grabbing an apple on the go. While apples are sweet, you don't have to avoid them to keep your teeth healthy. This succulent fruit is high in both water and fiber. Eating an apple will stimulate saliva production, rinsing away excess food particles and bacteria. Plus, the texture of the apple will stimulate the gums, reducing your risk for periodontal disease. Yogurt Packaged in a convenient to-go cup, yogurt is a great travel snack. It is high in protein and calcium, which will strengthen your teeth. Yogurt is also high in probiotics, which benefit the gums by crowding out cavity-causing bacteria. While there are many flavors available, the best options for optimal oral health will be those without added sugar. Don't let your snacking habits become the cause of damage to your teeth and gums. Stick to foods that will keep your teeth healthy. These delicious options will leave you full with a smile that you can be proud to show the world....
