What can I do to keep my gums healthy

Patients often ask how they can keep their gums healthy and happy and prevent gum disease and other dental health issues. There are many healthy (and easy) habits you can start forming at home to prevent gum disease.

First and foremost, practicing good oral hygiene is the most important thing you can do to prevent and treat gum disease.

What Causes Sensitive Teeth?

It can be frustrating – and, of course, downright painful – to have sensitive teeth. The mere thought of doing something as basic as chewing on a piece of ice can make you wince, as can drinking any sort of hot beverage. Why does this problem happen, and what can you do about it? Let’s take a quick look.

Common Dental Infections

Common dental infections can be so serious that they become life-threatening. Cavities are caused by microorganisms, which generate acid, that cover teeth surfaces. As time goes on, the acid can harm teeth by eroding tooth enamel. Sugary snacks are the main cause of cavities, along with diet soda, which can cause tooth erosion because the phosphoric acid found in diet soda can change the pH levels in your mouth.

Do Dental Implants Hurt?

The placement of dental implants at our Palm Beach Gardens office is virtually painless. Thanks to advancements in both implant technology and topical anesthetics, we are able to place dental implants without heavy sedation and, while some mild discomfort may linger for a day or two following implant placement, over-the-counter medications are typically enough to address the problem until it subsides on its own.
