Worst Foods And Drinks For Your Teeth

Contributed by DentalROI

It’s undeniable that eating and drinking are among the most enjoyable everyday pleasures, especially when we share those times with our family and friends. It’s also true that what we choose to eat and drink have a major impact on our oral health. Our friendly dentist at Tranquil Dental likes to remind our patients to consider some important facts before making mealtime or snacking decisions.

Sugary foods, especially those containing sucrose, are the biggest culprits when it comes to tooth decay. Why? Because sugar is a particularly welcoming place for bacteria to grow and flourish. That bacteria then gets down to the business of turning sugar from foods and beverages into harmful acids that can inflict lasting damage to our teeth. If not cleaned properly, that bacteria can also form a coating on the teeth called plaque. Plaque can eventually harden into tartar, which brings with it gum inflammation.

Reap the Advantages of a Stunning Smile

Contributed by DentalROI

What are the first things you notice about people when you meet them in-person? Studies have shown that it’s most likely their eyes and mouths. Conversely, your eyes and mouth are what others initially note about you. That’s why a fantastic grin is a great asset, and a dentist is the person to see about getting one. 

At the office of Tranquil Dental, we provide a warm and welcoming experience for each patient. We pride ourselves on utilizing the most modern equipment and methods available to improve the oral health of all of our patients’ teeth. 

Here are four ways that a stunning smile behooves you.

What You Need To Know About Mouthwash and Alcohol

Contributed by DentalROI

Mouthwash has been recommended by dental professionals for many years. The touted benefits of an oral rinse include ingredients that wash away leftover food particles between the teeth, cut down on plaque buildup, prevent gum disease, and freshen breath. Some patients ask our friendly dentist at Tranquil Dental about one of the inactive ingredients in mouthwash — alcohol, which is used as a preservative — and ask whether they might be better off considering a mouthwash that does not contain alcohol.

Here’s some of what we tell our patients about whether they can or should avoid mouthwashes that contain alcohol. Although mouthwashes have been found to help alleviate dry mouth, the alcohol contained in many of the most popular brands may actually worsen the symptoms of this condition. That tingling sensation that users feel when they rinse with a mouthwash is triggered by alcohol, and while for some people that experience is refreshing, for others may find it uncomfortable or even burning. Some brands contain as much as 25 percent alcohol in their mouthwashes, further heightening this effect.

Plaque and Tartar: What Are They And How Do I Avoid Them

Contributed by DentalROI

If you are in the habit of having regular dental checkups and cleanings (and we certainly hope you are!) you’ve probably heard the words “tartar” and “plaque” mentioned more than once by your dentist or hygienist. You may have been too preoccupied at that moment to grasp the meaning of these two little words, so our friendly dentist at Tranquil Dental wants to help you understand the role plaque and tartar play in your oral health.

First, let’s discuss plaque, that soft, sticky coating that builds up on our teeth, containing a mix of food, saliva and bacteria. Plaque carries more than 500 different types of bacteria, according to the American Dental Association. Some of that bacteria is harmful, producing acids that can wear away the hard, protective coating of your teeth known as the enamel. Damage to the enamel can be permanent, because it does not grow back.
