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

Carlisle PA Dentist Discusses Gum Disease Therapy

May 20, 2016

Carlisle gum disease therapyWhile bleeding gums may not seem like a really big deal, when left untreated, bleeding gums can progress to a much more serious complication. Bleeding gums are the first sign of gum disease, known as gingivitis, which is easily treatable. However, when left untreated, gingivitis will progress to the later stages of gum disease. Once periodontal disease has progressed past the point of gingivitis, you will need Carlisle gum disease therapy with Dr. Thomas Neslund. Dr. Neslund provides Carlisle periodontal therapy to stop the damaging results of the infection to restore your oral health.
