Signs You're Brushing Your Teeth Too Hard
(http://ow.ly/uxAs30mWPx4)

When it comes to brushing your teeth, proper technique is important – brushing too lightly won’t get the job done, and brushing too hard can damage your teeth and gums, leading to enamel wear, receding gums and tooth sensitivity. Bleeding gums are another sign you may be brushing your teeth too hard, especially if you find that your gums are consistently swollen and red. If you’re unsure if you’re using the proper brushing technique, make sure to ask us during your next visit!

Drinks and Foods to Avoid for Sensitive Teeth
(http://ow.ly/v5sp30mWPx0)

If you have sensitive teeth, certain foods and drinks may cause you some discomfort, especially if they're very hot or cold. Avoiding these eight foods and drinks can help reduce sensitivity: soda, ice cream, hot coffee, hard candy, sticky candy, citrus fruits, tomatoes, and ice. If your sensitive teeth and symptoms persist, however, it’s best to stop in to see your dentist!

How to Choose the Best Orthodontic Treatment For You
(http://ow.ly/x4cF30mWPwZ)

If your smile isn’t as straight as you would like, and you want to do something about it, orthodontic treatment can help. These days, you have more than a few options available to you, as well. While you need to visit us for a consultation to determine which treatment is best-suited for your specific needs, some of the popular orthodontic options available include Cfast and Invisalign, which are clear, plastic aligners that are a more convenient and comfortable alternative to braces.

Why You’re Bleeding When You Floss
(http://ow.ly/MDtx30mWPwX)

If your gums consistently bleed when you floss, you shouldn’t ignore it. Bleeding gums can spell a variety of oral issues, including plaque buildup along the gumline and between teeth. This can also be caused by plaque forming on top of tartar, which can lead to gingivitis, and vitamin deficiencies. In addition to removing plaque, you might consider using a rinse to kill bacteria around the affected area.

Why Two Teeth Cleanings Per Year Might Not be Enough
(http://ow.ly/ayix30mWPwT)

For some people, visiting the dentist twice per year for a dental cleaning will do the trick. The two-per-year suggestion may not be enough for you, however, depending on your dental health. If you have a history of periodontal disease, more frequent cleanings may be necessary, as top-quality cleanings help prevent infections and disease. If you have heart disease or diabetes, you should also consider more regular cleanings, as these conditions can lead to dental problems.

Do I Have to Floss Every Day?
(http://ow.ly/z2gk30mWPwO)

Flossing is a crucial step in a proper oral care routine. When done correctly, flossing prevents the buildup of plaque, which can lead to serious tooth decay and gum disease. Simply put, spending a couple minutes of your day flossing is much better than spending tons of money and time fixing a big problem! While we hope you floss every day, visiting the dentist for regular cleanings helps if you’ve been missing the mark, too!
