Fluoride FAQs

There are always many questions surouding fluoride, especially for parents concerned with their children. "Do I need to be worried about my child drinking water with fluoride?" and "Do I need to worry if my child swallows toothpaste with fluoride?" are common questions we encounter at our office. Recently, the American Dental Association has summed up all of this information for you all in one place! Check out mouthhealthy.org  for frequently asked questions about fluoride. As always, if you have questions about anything on that site we encourage you to ask us at your next dental viist.

Halloween & Healthy Teeth

October is here which means that Halloween is just around the corner! For many children this means bags of free candy, and for many adults this means lots of candy at hand at home or in the office to snack on. Here are a few easy tips to keep damage to your teeth to a minimum:

 

Tip 1:  Try to consume candy with meals (keep the snacking to a minimum!)- You produce more saliva during meals which helps to wash away food particles and neutralize the pH of your mouth.

 

Tip 2: Avoid hard, sticky candy or candy that stays in your mouth a long time- The stickier the candy the longer it takes for the saliva to wash it away. The longer the candy stays in your mouth the more your teeth are exposed to sugars and acids.

 

Tip 3: Drink plenty of water!- Especially fluoridated water- (mostly tap water and even some bottled water has fluoridation, check the label!) It will help to wash away food particles.

 

Tip 4: Maintain good oral health practices like brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing at least once a day to make sure all lingering unhealthy bacteria is removed.
