If temperature changes and inhaling air causes you pain, you may be suffering from tooth sensitivity.

Most parents know they shouldn’t send their kids to school with sugary, acidic sodas, but there are secret sugars hiding in some of the drinks parents consider good for kids. Sodas are highly acidic and contain large amounts of natural and processed sugars. This one two punch can increase risk of decay for kids. Reducing soda intake or removing it completely from your child’s diet is a great first step, but there are actually other drinks that can negatively impact your child’s oral health. There are three keys to keeping your child’s smile healthy. Drink sugary and acidic beverages in moderation, keep teeth healthy with great at home care, and visit a trusted Boiling Springs dentist for biannual dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings.

Tooth 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. Contact us to schedule your dental checkup to find out more.
