If you’ve ever pouted and asked yourself, “Why do I even have to brush my teeth, anyway?” our Grand Prairie, TX team has some thoughts for you. We know, sometimes you just don’t feel like it, you don’t feel well, you’re tired, or brushing and flossing (or a preventive visits) isn’t first in line of the list of things you’re excited to do. However, making the time for your smile care is absolutely worth it! Of course, we are well aware that offering up compelling reasons is going to be much more powerful than simply saying, “Oh, it’s great!” So, without further ado, consider some new factors to think about in regard to protecting your oral health.
You might think that when you find a natural solution to your smile care woes online or when you hear about them from a friend, they’re probably going to save you time, money, and that they’ll make things easy breezy. Unfortunately, though some natural solutions are wonderful for you, they’re not always better. Remember, it’s all about whether the product you use to clean or treat your smile is safe or unsafe, whether it comes straight from nature or not. So, consider some details that our Grand Prairie, TX team would like you to keep in mind regarding “natural remedies” that aren’t so great.
Gingivitis is one of those oral health concerns that frequently causes a whole lot of confusion. On its own, it’s not a very complex topic: It’s gum inflammation, the very first phase of gum disease! However, when it comes to identifying it, treating it, and understanding its significance in the greater context of your smile health, well, that’s when things can become tricky. Our Grand Prairie, TX team would love to help make this topic an easier one, so you know what’s what and can better protect your smile.
You may expect a lot of reminders from our Grand Prairie, TX team. You think we’ll remind you to schedule your preventive care appointments with us, so you can keep your oral health safe. You know for a fact that when you see us for checkups, we will remind you to brush and especially to floss. You even know we will suggest you ask us questions because sometimes patients forget or simply feel too shy. What you may not have seen coming but that is certainly important is our decision to remind you to rinse! “What’s that?” you might ask, “you want me to rinse my smile?” The answer is yes and we have some additional advice heading your way.

Your sense of taste is something you rely on, just like your other senses. This one happens to be very obvious to you because you get used to the way certain foods taste. You even crave certain things. So, when you dig into your favorite dish, dessert, or even your daily breakfast cereal and it doesn’t taste the way it normally does, this can immediately cause you serious concern (and frustration, too). We know this is inconvenient but our Grand Prairie, TX team reminds you that when your sense of taste goes haywire, there’s usually a pretty good explanation and your oral health is likely just fine.
If you’re not extremely familiar with composite at the moment, then allow our Grand Prairie, TX team to quickly run you through some details that will remind you … you do know this material! Remember those tooth-colored fillings you’ve heard so much about (or that you already have in your smile)? The ones that match your teeth beautifully, so can’t even see them? They are made of composite! It’s a material that’s very easy for us to use for smile improvements! While it’s used frequently for fillings, there’s something else you should know: We rely on it for dental bonding, too, in which we add the composite to your tooth where the addition of tissue makes your smile look even better. Still curious about composite? Consider a few “C” things you get from it!
