Your oral health care routine is spot on: You brush twice a day, you floss at least once a day, and you maintain regular visits to our dental office in Memphis. So why are you still at risk for tooth damage?
Our old friend the sun has a bad habit of disappearing quite often during the winter months. During the few hours of daylight we do have, it’s usually too cold to go sit outside and soak up some rays, or we’re all stuck indoors at work. When the sun decides to hibernate during the winter, our most plentiful supply of vitamin D is compromised. That’s bad news to all of us at our dental office in Memphis!
Do you suffer from sharp zings of pain while trying to enjoy your favorite hot or cold foods? Perhaps during a bite of a soothing popsicle or a sip of comforting hot tea, all of the sudden, it’s less about “Yum!” and more about “Ouch!” If your teeth are keeping you from the hot or cold foods and drinks you love, our dental office in Memphis is here to help.
If you haven’t been to the dentist in a few years, you may be worried about going. Whether it’s due to fear of the dentist, nervousness of what they’ll find, or you really want to avoid getting a lecture, we encourage you to put your anxiety aside. We’ll never lecture you at our dental office in Memphis, and are here to give you the skinny on what to expect.
In recent years, using antibiotics as a pre-appointment preventive tool for fighting infection was a common recommendation for dental patients with heart disease.
