How to Change Up Your Brushing Routine to Make It Less Routine
Posted on 3/25/2018 by Water's Edge Dental
When you get into a brushing routine, it may be good in some circumstances. You remember to brush, floss, rinse, and visit our office. These are all great things. However, when you never change up that routine, you could fall into the monotonous category. This means that you do these things automatically, without putting much thought behind them. You could end up not taking care of your teeth as well, and struggle with things like gum disease or cavities. Instead, what you want, is to figure out a way to make that routine new so you notice the little things and keep up with your oral health. Ways of Changing Around Your Oral Health Routine Without Missing AnythingThere are quite a few things you can do to make your routine more interesting. First, you can start brushing in a different spot each time. This can make it to where you have to focus on what you are doing instead of just going through the motions. Second, you can change up what tools you use. One day, use regular floss, and the next, use a water flosser. Today, use mint flavored toothpaste, and tomorrow, use a toothpaste that tastes like bacon! Yes, it really does exist. Third, you can flip out what type of mouthwash you use on a daily basis. This gives you the chance to feel the differences between them, and potentially, give your teeth the benefits of each of those types, if you use them enough. Just go through and change up your routine now and again. Do not miss any of the steps, just change them around. What you want is to make sure you are actively taking care of your teeth, not just going through the motions. Once you have that down, your teeth will be better off for it....

How Does Nitrous Oxide Help Relieve Dental Anxiety?
Posted on 3/15/2018 by Water's Edge Dental
If you have really bad dental anxiety, or a fear of needles, or drills, nitrous oxide will be able to help you. We have something here called sedation dentistry and we can relax you and calm your nerves and you won't feel a thing during your exam or procedure. In this article we will be discussing what sedation dentistry is and how it works. What is Sedation DentistryWe use sedation to make you more relaxed before and during your dental procedure. You will be sedated by a mask that will be placed over your nose and you will breathe it in through your nose and out your mouth so that way the nitrous oxide will reach your brain instantly giving you a more relaxed and calm feeling. How Does Nitrous Oxide Work?When we think of the words nitrous oxide, we automatically think we will be put to sleep. Nitrous oxide will not put you to sleep, it will relax you and get you a calming sensation and it will also reduce your sensitivity to pain. Some people even say that they feel their cheeks and gums go numb while breathing in the gas. After we give you the gas we will begin the procedure, if you're still scared we can adjust how much gas we give you, while we are doing the procedure. When your procedure is complete, we will give you oxygen and have your breath it in so it will negate the effects of the nitrous oxide that you breathed in. All of the gas will be out of your system in 2-5 minutes of breathing in the oxygen. One of the best things about nitrous oxide after you leave the office you will be able to drive yourself home. Is Nitrous Oxide SafeNitrous oxide is one of the safest anesthetics that we have available. It's not an allergenic and it won't irritate you. One of the reasons why we use this method is because it very effective and safe for you and your children. After this appointment, you will have very little or no memory of your treatment which will give you a more relaxed feeling for your next appointment. If you have any more questions or concerns about sedation dentistry come in and see us, or call. We are always here to help in any way we can....

Why Do So Many People Fear Root Canals?
Posted on 2/25/2018 by Water's Edge Dental
Root canals are usually thought of as a scary process. Not only is the dentist digging deep into the pulp of the tooth, but when the tooth needs a root canal, it is usually something that is already causing them pain so they do not want to be in further pain. The process of the root canal itself can also be daunting since a little tent is required and the tooth has to be localized to get the best results. Root Canals Do Not Have to Be ScaryRoot canals do not have to be scary when it comes to drilling into the tooth and removing the pulp and roots that are decayed. The dentist can work with you to make you feel more comfortable about the procedure that you are about to go through. Working with a dentist that you feel the most comfortable with is going to put your mind at ease, no matter what the procedure is that you are going through. Root canals are often thought of as scary because of the time it takes to clean out and empty the middle of the tooth. When this is done, the tooth has to be filled back in and then a crown is usually placed over top of it. While this can be a lengthy process, it is one that does not have to be done over time. It also does not have to be something that you need to be afraid of confessing your nervousness to the dentist. Speak with our office today if you want to schedule a time to have dental work done with one of our friendly dentists. They can put your mind at ease when it comes to having a root canal or any other procedure done. Call us today to learn even more!...
