• You should brush twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and floss once a day.

• Choose an ADA-accepted toothbrush that has polished bristles because they are less likely to injure gum tissue. Use a soft bristled toothbrush with a size and shape that allows you to reach all tooth surfaces.

• Replace your toothbrush every three to four months, or sooner if the bristles become worn or frayed.

• Oral irrigators are used as an aid for people with braces or fixed partial dentures, they should not replace regular brushing or flossing.



• More and more Americans go to a female dentist, according to a recent survey by the American Dental Association. The survey reports that the largest percent of practicing dentists were in the 35 to 45 year old group. This age-related group has 48 percent of the female dentists and 32 percent of male dentists. In the under 35 group, 12 percent were male dentists while the same group contained 37 percent of the female dentists. In the group representing dentists aged 55-64, there are only three percent women and 17 percent men. This survey clearly shows the rapid inclusion of female professionals as dentists over the past 15 years.

• Are you a wine drinker? According to a study at Guy’s Hospital in London, the acid in wine was shown to erode the enamel on teeth. A wine taster had been exposed to so much wine that only the fillings were protruding in some of the subject’s teeth. Any individual who tastes wine or drinks wine often should clean his or her mouth at least twice a day. Typically, red wine causes the worst stains on teeth.

Crowns & Bridges: For a great smile you may need crowns to restore a tooth to its normal shape and size. A crown also makes the tooth stronger and improves its appearance. And cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left. Or used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that's already broken. A crown is also a good way to cover discolored or badly shaped teeth and dental implants. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face as well as improving your bite by replacing missing teeth. Often referred to as a fixed partial denture, bridges replace missing teeth and look great. They are usually made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these and are bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge or denture that can be removed and cleaned, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist. An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under gum tissue.

Bonding: The dental bonding procedure utilizes a composite resin and is used for a variety of structural as well as cosmetic purposes. One can draw a parallel between dental bonding materials and a sculptor's clay. By using dental composite resin bonding your dentist can restore chipped or broken teeth, fill in gaps and reshape or recolor your smile.
