At the start of every new year, most of us begin to reevaluate our waistlines and opt for a healthier lifestyle. With the growing popularity of juicing in recent years, more of our patients have been turning to this diet as a means of increasing their fruit and vegetable intake. While blending veggies, fruits, and other nutrients together can be very beneficial for overall health, do you really know the effects on your oral health?
The Effects of Juicing on the Teeth
When you consume a fruit and vegetable drink, you’re exposing your teeth to the acids that come from these foods as well. Over time, these acids can cause staining and erosion damage to your teeth. Many people notice that their teeth feel sticky or rough after juicing for more than a couple days. Thankfully, Dr. Carlyn Phucas at Carlyn Phucas Orthodontics has a few easy tips to help maintain great oral health while drinking yourself to a better you. Read More
We know that with the new year beginning, now is the best time to learn what some call the “ABC’s of Orthodontics.” Simply put, “A” is for age, “B” is for braces types, and “C” is for cost and/or choice. Using this approach makes dealing with orthodontics a whole lot easier.
Age is an important factor when it comes to orthodontics for children. Orthodontists usually agree that it is best to wait until a child has all of his or her permanent teeth before implementing any kind of orthodontic procedures. Furthermore, an evaluation of a child’s teeth by age 7 can prevent problems in the future.
Some of these problems can prove to be more difficult to resolve as a child grows older. Orthodontic evaluations are usually complimentary and do not require any kind of referral from a dentist. It’s best to have an evaluation during the summer time so that if braces are required the initial process will not interfere with their schooling.
At the start of each new year, we often hear people say, “New year, new me.” But what exactly does that mean? At Carlyn Phucas Orthodontics, we say “New year, new smile, better hygiene.”
To help you start the new year with a great smile and better oral health, we’ve come up with a list of essentials you will need to achieve this new year’s resolution.
Simply brushing your teeth does not always get to the hard-to-reach areas. Flossing is one of the most effective ways to prevent cavities, fight bad breath, tartar buildup, gum disease and improve your appearance. Make sure floss is part of your at-home dental care routine in the new year to maintain your bright smile.
