Soft Drinks Can Be Hard on Teeth!

From a dental point of view, there's nothing soft about so-called soft drinks. Sugar does not directly damage teeth. That happens when certain bacteria in the mouth release acids that eat into tooth enamel. These bacteria, however, need food to survive and refined sugar is a very potent source. What you eat, they eat. If not eliminated promptly, they hang around to do their dirty work.

The real culprit in carbonated soft drinks, however, is the fizz itself: carbonic acid. A sugary, un-carbonated drink like Kool-Aid is actually easier on teeth than, say, Diet Pepsi. So watch your consumption of soft drinks and be sure to contact Grand Haven Dental Care at (855) 821-4159 to schedule a dental checkup.

How To Avoid Crisis Dental Treatment

Many people don't see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. At Grand Haven Dental Care we call this 'crisis treatment' as opposed to 'preventive treatment.' While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. Most dental problems don't have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.

An example is tooth decay – it doesn’t hurt until it gets close to the nerve of the tooth. Then a costly root canal or dental crown are usually necessary, instead of the small filling, which could have been placed inexpensively several years ago when the cavity was small. If you have questions regarding dental emergencies, please call our office at (855) 821-4159 today.

Finding the Perfect Toothpaste

From whitening to ultra-sensitive, there are a multitude of toothpastes available on today's market. How do you choose? Start by selecting one with fluoride, which will prevent cavities. Other things to consider are flavor, whitening potential, tartar control and price. Often the biggest difference between two brands is packaging, so don't get hung up on the finer details. Consider selecting fun flavored toothpaste for children, as it will encourage them to brush regularly.

Very young children require a fluoride-free variety for safety. Call us at (855) 821-4159 and Dr. Leatha Wood will be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for your family.
