The 5 Worst Things You Can Do For Your Teeth

Sucking on lemons can break down the protective enamel of your teeth, causing decay.

 

  1. Eat lots of sugary, sticky, and processed foods.  Especially dried fruit like raisins.  Yup, you heard me right.  Sticky raisins stay in the crevices of your teeth like a sticky fruit rollup would and can cause decay.
  2. Forget to floss your teeth.  I know.  It’s a pain, and you’ve already brushed.  Isn’t that enough?  Only floss the ones you want to keep.  Yes, there was that article a few years ago that posed an argument that flossing is a waste of time.  I beg to disagree.  Flossing can actually help your gums and bone.  When food particles and bacteria get trapped between your teeth, they can cause gum disease and ...

Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits Before They Expire

 We are quickly approaching the end of the year so I thought this would be a good time to remind everyone to make sure they are using their dental insurance to its fullest.  Dental insurances, which YOU pay for, give an annual maximum of money that can be used towards covered services as well as 2 copay free check ups and cleanings per year.
