What Vitamins Do Yellow Produce Give Your Teeth and Body?

Posted on 9/21/2021 by Water's Edge Dental
Eating a diet rich in minerals and vitamins can help strengthen your teeth. These nutrients also help protect the teeth against some drinks and foods that cause acidic erosion. One of the best sources of vitamins is yellow produce. These food items are rich in vitamins and will be of great benefit to your teeth. Corn, squash, and yellow potatoes are a few examples of yellow produce that supply vitamins to your body. Corn Corn is a brightly colored plant that contains plenty of nutrients. This plant is rich in vitamins A, B, and E. It also has other minerals like phosphorus and manganese. The plant also produces yellow kernels that are high in fiber; fiber helps prevent any digestion-related problems or illnesses like constipation, colorectal cancer, and hemorrhoids. Furthermore, it has little yellow beads that contain phytochemicals. These are important for your oral health because they can prevent the spread of bacteria. Squash Yellow varieties of squash provide a wide range of health benefits. This vegetable is rich in vitamins A, B6, and C. It also contains other minerals like fiber, magnesium, folate, phosphorus, riboflavin, and potassium. All these nutrients are vital for both your teeth and overall health. They help boost bone strength and improve jaw flexibility. Yellow Potatoes Most people think of yellow potatoes as comfort foods. As much as they are comfort foods, yellow potatoes are also rich in vitamins that are necessary for good health. They are mostly rich in vitamin C and B6. They also contain minerals like phosphorus and manganese. Therefore, eating such foods will go a long way in keeping your teeth healthy. Apart from yellow produce, you should also eat other fruits and vegetables that will help improve your health. Fruits like apples and berries are very beneficial for your teeth. Contact our offices for more information on the importance of yellow produce....

How Often Should You Be Brushing and Flossing?

Posted on 9/6/2021 by Water's Edge Dental
We all know that brushing and flossing are important habits to incorporate into our day. The benefits of these two easy activities far outweigh the effort and time we put into it. For instance, we know that brushing is the most effective way to remove plaque and food debris from the surface of our teeth. If plaque persists on our teeth, we can expect tooth decay to develop. We also know that flossing has numerous benefits as well. You can brush most of the surfaces of your teeth, but it is important to remove plaque from between your teeth. By brushing and flossing between your teeth, you can address all surfaces of your teeth. Our Recommendations for Brushing and Flossing Your Teeth Our best advice is to get into a daily habit of brushing and flossing your teeth. For instance, it is important to brush your teeth twice a day. Plaque accumulates at an astounding rate, so it is important to stay ahead of it by proactively brushing your teeth. Choose a soft-bristled toothbrush and brush your teeth for two minutes during each brushing session. Brush in the morning after breakfast and again at night before bed. Be gentle on your teeth, as brushing vigorously can cause gum recession. As we know, plaque and tartar also accumulate between your teeth. The buildup of tartar can lead to tooth decay and cavities. Inflammation is also common if people choose not to floss. If this is left untreated, it could turn into periodontitis. This advanced form of gum disease will complicate your oral health. To avoid all that, we advise our patients to floss at least once a day. Flossing before your evening brushing session is the best way to eliminate trapped debris before it can cause damage overnight. Schedule Your Dental Exam Schedule your next dental exam with our friendly office staff. We'll be happy to assess your brushing and flossing techniques, as well as give you more tips and tricks to make brushing and flossing more efficient....

Options You Have for Cracked Front Teeth

Posted on 8/23/2021 by Water's Edge Dental
Let's say you wake up one day and notice that your front tooth is cracked. Unfortunately, this is a reality for some patients. Others may have been in an accident or a contact sport and cracked a tooth. While that may seem catastrophic, we are here to help you and have several cosmetic options for your tooth. It is quite possible that after your tooth is fixed your smile may even be better than it was before. Cosmetic Options for a Cracked Front Tooth Since the crack on your front tooth is visible when your smile, we need to carefully consider any cosmetic options. Conversely, if the crack on your tooth was on a molar, we may use a porcelain onlay to improve the tooth structure of your cracked tooth. We may suggest using a dental veneer on your front cracked tooth. A dental veneer is a custom shaped piece of porcelain or resin used to cover your tooth. This permanent treatment is bonded to your tooth and will drastically improve the appearance of the tooth. With surprising accuracy, we can match the color of your existing teeth. When we use a dental veneer, the crack will no longer be noticeable. Additionally, veneers can last up to 30 years. Another cosmetic treatment to consider for a cracked tooth is a crown. A crown is a tooth-colored cap that fits around your tooth and is custom made to match your existing teeth. We work hard to make sure your crown fits precisely in your mouth. We Want to Help We look forward to discussing different cosmetic scenarios with you. If you do need a crown or dental veneer for your cracked front tooth, we can guide you toward the best decision. We will work with you to have your beautiful smile restored....
