Tips For Brushing Baby’s Teeth

February 4, 2014

October is National Dental Hygiene Month! We asked our Hygienist at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design:

What are some tips for parents of babies who are starting to brush those first teeth?

It’s best to use the tiniest amount of toothpaste and a type specific for toddlers and infants.  A good approach is to allow child to brush themselves, then parent can do so after.  If child is very resistant, then wipe teeth with wet washcloth to remove plaque.

National Dental Health Month – Mouth Wash

September 19, 2013

Filed under: Dental Hygiene Month,Uncategorized — admin @ 9:45 am

In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, we asked our hygienists, “What is your opinion on mouthwash? Do you recommend it?”

Christine: I believe mouth wash can be important. If you use a mouth wash, make sure it is an antibacterial rinse. I prefer alcohol free rinses.  Also the child friendly rinses with fluoride are as great way to help with healthy hygiene.

Gina: Listerine mouthwash is my favorite.   Vanilla Mint and Citrus flavors are best for those who are not regular users. (They burn less.)

National Dental Hygiene Month – Most Important Tip

Filed under: Dental Hygiene Month,Uncategorized — admin @ 9:20 am

In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, we asked our hygienists, What is your most important dental advice?

Christine: As Adults we only get one set of teeth.  Teeth play an important role in our health.  Infection in our teeth and gums can affect our heart, respiratory and overall well being.   As older adults, teeth are important for proper nutrition. It is important to keep your teeth healthy for a life time.

In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, we asked our hygienist, What is your favorite Sonicare product?  Tell us about the Sonicare products available at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design.    

Christine: I have used Sonicare brushes for many years.  Since I floss regularly I do not use the Airfloss but I believe it can be helpful for people who do not like their fingers in their mouth.

Aesthetic Dentistry by Design has the Diamond Clean and Flex care models of Sonicare toothbrush as well as the Airfloss. We also carry replacement heads which you should replace about every 3 months.

National Dental Hygiene Month – Toothpaste & Floss

Filed under: Dental Hygiene Month,Flossing — admin @ 9:06 am

In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, we asked our hygienists, What kind of toothpaste and floss do you use/recommend?

Christine: I like Colgate Total because it makes my mouth feel very clean.  I like waxed floss for me.   I believe you can use any tooth paste or floss you like.  Just make sure the toothpaste has some Fluoride in it.

Gina: I recommend any toothpaste with Fluoride. If the patient has tooth sensitivity, then a less abrasive type, for sensitive teeth is best.

National Dental Hygiene Month, we asked our hygienists, What are some tips that patients can practice to have good, healthy habits?

Filed under: Dental Hygiene Month,Flossing,Uncategorized — admin @ 9:05 am

The 2013 National Dental Health Month theme is “Brush. Floss. Rinse. Chew.” which continues to encourage healthy habits for healthy living. What are some tips that patients can practice to have good, healthy habits (oral and overall).

Christine: I suggest flossing while watching TV. You get the chore done before you are too tired and fall asleep.

Gina: It’s good to chew gum with xylitol, especially if unable to brush immediately after eating.    Many children and adults are not brushing their tongue regularly. Drinking water throughout the day is very good for our teeth and our bodies.

What Is Good Oral Health?

October 17, 2010

Filed under: Dental Hygiene Month — admin @ 9:43 am

October is National Dental Hygiene Month!

We asked our wonderful Hygienist at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, Yee Fong:

What is your definition of “good oral health?”

Good oral health means to be free of cavities and gum disease (gingivitis and/or periodontal disease)!

Having a healthy mouth means being able to eat and enjoy the foods we love, which in turn effects our overall health!

Studies have shown untreated tooth decay and/or gum disease can lead to heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease and premature and low weight babies.

What does our Hygienist give away on Halloween night?

October 14, 2010

Filed under: Dental Hygiene Month — admin @ 9:38 am

October is National Dental Hygiene Month! We asked our wonderful Hygienist at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design, Yee Fong:

What will you give out at Halloween?

Honestly, I feel it’s OK to indulge on special occasions.

I know many of you may expect me to say I pass out floss & toothbrushes for Halloween, but I do that 4 days a week, which equates to 208 days a year.

Therefore, I will pass out Twix, Snickers, Kit Kats (my fav) and Butterfingers.

I don’t like lollipops or any kind any candy that sticks to my teeth (caramels) so I won’t pass those out 🙂
