ROBINSON DENTAL HEALTH TIPS
- Thinking about having a baby? Think about your dental health first. Hormonal changes during pregnancy increase the risk of developing gum disease, which could affect the health of your developing baby. Research also indicates that pregnant women with gum disease are five times more likely to have complications, including premature labor.
- What does your dental health say about your overall health? Researchers aren’t sure why, but gum disease is linked to a host of illnesses – including heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Now, doesn’t it makes sense to care for your mouth?
- How often do you floss? Okay, how often do you really floss? If you’re not flossing at least once a day, you’re leaving two surfaces of each tooth exposed to sticky bacteria – or plaque – that generates acid, which causes cavities, irritates the gums and leads to gum disease. Now how often will you floss?
- Bad breath and yellowing teeth aren’t the only reasons to stop smoking. Tobacco makes you more likely to get cancer of the mouth, throat, salivary glands, tongue or lip. It’s not easy to quit, but nicotine patches, quit-smoking programs or prescription medications can help you tame the urge.
- If dazzling white teeth will make you smile, by all means whiten away! But make sure you know the facts first. Your dentist will ensure you have healthy gums and cavity-free teeth – requirements for whiter teeth – and will help you select products that whiten better, last longer, and prevent gum sensitivity and damage to your tooth enamel.
- If you’d rather suffer with a toothache than visit a dentist, consider sedation dentistry. Using a mild medication customized to help you relax, sedation dentistry will leave you alert, yet more comfortable during complex procedures – or a simple tooth cleaning. For many people, sedation dentistry can be a path to healthier teeth.
