She’s Got Her Mother’s Smile! Or Does She? - It’s all in the genes when it comes to many traits and characteristics inherited from parent to child. In some ways, the same can be said for our smiles. At my Wichita dental office, we were curious to know if children are more likely to inherit the same dental problems as their parents and how DNA influences dental health. Let’s find out. Blame it on the DNA Several dental problems can be passed down from parent to child through DNA including: The size and shape of the mouth, which could result in a bad bite and TMJ pain Teeth alignment including gaps, crookedness, and overcrowding Oral cancer risk Cleft palates Knowing your family’s medical history and what diseases tend to be more prominent is a great first step in being able to detect and treat problems early. Make sure you share this information with your dentist. Nature vs. Nurture Don’t place all the blame on genetics when it comes to dental dilemmas. Discoloration, cavities, and even gum disease are nurtured behaviors

How Long Does a Tooth Filling Last? - While there are several dental myths we strive to debunk everyday by educating our patients, there’s one that’s particularly concerning for all of us at my Wichita dental office.  A common misconception is that once you get a cavity filled, you’re good to go for life. Never worry about it again. One and done. We never like to be the bearer of unfortunate news, but that’s just not the case. The lifespan of dental fillings depends on what type of material is used to fill the cavity. Some last longer than others. Some have other advantages to them besides lasting a long time. It depends on which type of filling is used, where it’s used, and how well you care for your teeth that can all impact the life expectancy of a dental filling. Silver Fillings There are some pros to getting silver fillings, but also some negatives. Silver fillings, also known as amalgam fillings, are strong, durable, and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. They typically last anywhere from 10 to 15 year

Top 3 Worst Easter Candies for your Teeth - Another holiday traditionally packed full of sweets is upon us, and at my Wichita dental office, we’re all about sweet treats in moderation. Moderation is key to any diet, especially when it comes to your oral health and sugar-loaded snacks. This Easter, try to avoid these top three worst candies, and swap them out for healthier alternatives. The Top Culprits Dentists have a reputation of being anti-sugar, and with good reason. Sugar is one of the main causes of decay and cavities, and most candies are full of the stuff. But some are worse for your teeth than others. Let’s take a look at what to avoid. Ooey, Gooey, Sticky Stuff Caramels, gummies, and taffy are some of the worst candy for your teeth. Sticky stuff gets stuck in crevices and hard-to-reach places in teeth, allowing sugar to linger even after you’re done eating. Pucker-inducing Sours Sour candy contains acid. A lot of it. Acid is what causes enamel to erode, making it easy for bacteria to wiggle in and create cavitie

The ABCs (and Ds) of Vitamins & Your Dental Health - At my Wichita dental office, we not only care about your oral health, we care about your whole body. To reach optimal wellness for both, it’s crucial that you’re getting enough vitamins and minerals. While all are important, we wanted to highlight a few that are necessary to keep your mouth healthy. A is For… Vitamin A Vitamin A helps support a strong immune system. And that’s important to both overall health and oral health. An adequate amount of vitamin A keeps gum tissue healthy, can quicken the healing process for any sores, and aids in the production of saliva. Find it in: Carrots, mangos, kale.
