How Often Do You Brush?

Everyone is different and takes care of their teeth in diverse ways. But have you ever asked yourself, “How often do I really need to brush my teeth?” Most people assume twice a day is enough to maintain a healthy smile. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day is the minimum you need to sustain your oral health. One of those brushings should be before you sleep. If you snack and drink throughout the day, plaque, bacteria, and acidic foods are harmful to your teeth and gums. In these instances it is extremely beneficial to brush after each meal.  
Also, drinking plenty of water can help reduce the production of harmful acids. Each individual decides how little or how much they brush, but if you keep the details above in mind, you can effectively decide when you need to brush. Also, combined with flossing and mouthwash, you can effectively maintain healthy teeth and gums.

Are You Afraid Of The Dentist?

Are you afraid of going to the dentist?  Here at Lakeway Smiles we offer some of the latest technologies in dental sedation.  Many of you have heard of laughing gas (nitrous oxide), but did you know that we are able to offer a stronger sedative that helps with anxiety and will allow you to "sleep" through your appointment.  This is offered in pill form.  Dr. Patel has completed courses in conscious sedation dentistry, and monitors your vital signs during the procedure at all times. He will also make sure that the sedation medications do not conflict or interact in a harmful way with your current medications.

Give us a call today if you are interested in world-class sedation dentistry!
