If temperature changes and inhaling air causes you pain, you may be suffering from tooth sensitivity. This is a relatively common problem that develops as the enamel becomes thinner, causing the dentin to become exposed. If home remedies have failed to give you relief, your dentist in Boiling Springs can help with a fluoride treatment.

What Toothbrush Should I Be Using?

July 16, 2017

Woman brushing teeth using a high quality toothbrushTooth brushing is one of the most important ways patients prevent unnecessary decay or damage. Brushing technique has a huge impact on the effectiveness of daily oral hygiene, and our dentist and hygiene team will be happy to demonstrate proper brushing techniques during any dental checkup, but one of the questions we hear most often from patients is, “What type of toothbrush should I be using?” Many times patients want to know whether or not they should invest in a mechanical toothbrush rather than the traditional manual brush. We tell patients that any toothbrush used properly will remove plaque and tartar buildup, but we can make some specific suggestions based on your unique oral health condition. At Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, our team is here to help dental patients from Boiling Springs and other surrounding communities make the best oral health and hygiene choices in our office and at home.

Children’s Dentistry in Carlisle, PA

February 15, 2015

467777161So while romantics and presidents get one day in February, the entire month is National Children’s Dental Health Month. What better time to make an appointment for your children to see Dr. Thomas Neslund at Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Carlisle, PA? Dr. Neslund and his staff emphasize the importance of children’s dentistry because if children learn early to take care of their teeth and gums, then they will likely enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.

Children’s Dentistry and You

While Dr. Neslund recommends that you start bringing your children to see him around when they are three years old, children’s dentistry actually begins before that in your home and with you. After feeding, clean your children’s baby teeth with a soft cloth dampened with warm water. As they grow and more teeth develop, you can gently brush their teeth with a soft toothbrush and just a bit of toothpaste.

Children’s Dentistry with Dr. Neslund

As with adults, Dr. Neslund recommends twice yearly checkups for children. At these checkups, we’ll clean their teeth and remove any plaque buildup. Whether you brush their teeth or they do, removing plaque from little teeth can be challenging, so we do our best to help with that during their checkups. We will also assess the health of their teeth and gums and possibly take x-rays.

Depending on what we find during your child’s exam, we might apply a fluoride treatment to strengthen tooth enamel. Once your child’s permanent teeth come in, we can apply dental sealants to your child’s molars. These create a solid barrier against decay-causing bacteria that can hide in deeply grooved teeth. Finally, as your child grows, we’ll also check on the development of his or her bite.

Call Our Office Today

If your children need to see the dentist, schedule an appointment with Dr. Neslund at Carlisle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Carlisle, PA. We also serve patients from Boiling Springs, Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, and surrounding Pennsylvania communities.

Family Dentistry for You and Yours in Carlisle, PA

December 15, 2014

170082992Do you ever think to yourself, “I brush my teeth, I try to remember to floss, nothing hurts, so why do I need to see the dentist?” If you do have that thought, don’t worry—you’re not alone. However, you really should see the dentist. Oral healthcare is not a do-it-yourself activity. With family dentistry at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Carlisle, PA, you can be certain that you are properly caring for your and your family’s oral health and smiles.

Family Dentistry: Preventing Problems, Maintaining Smiles

As your family dentist, Dr. Thomas Neslund focuses on preventing oral health problems before you even notice any symptoms. That’s why we’d like to see you and your family at least twice a year for dental checkups. With regularly scheduled checkups, we can more easily monitor your oral health and be on the lookout for any changes, even the most subtle of changes.

At these checkups, our dental hygienists will clean your teeth, gently remove any visible plaque, examine your gums, and check for tooth decay. Sometimes, dental x-rays may be necessary to pinpoint spots of decay that are invisible to the naked eye. If we do find a cavity, then Dr. Neslund fills it with a tooth-colored composite resin to maintain the natural appearance of your smile.

Family Dentistry for Kids, Too

Starting at around three years old, children should start coming to see Dr. Neslund at Carlisle Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. With an early start, your children will become accustomed to regular dental checkups and will be more likely to continue this good habit. While your children still have their baby teeth, we will examine their teeth and gums, gently clean their teeth and possibly take x-rays. And we may apply a fluoride treatment to protect their teeth from cavities. Once their permanent teeth erupt, we’ll apply dental sealants to your children’s deeply grooved molars an added layer of protection against cavities.
