Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Guide To Healthy Tooth Enamel

Advanced Cosmetic & Laser Dentistry Guide To Healthy Tooth Enamel

This message from Advanced Cosmetic Implant & Laser Dentistry in Seattle is about tooth enamel: one of the strongest substances in the body. Strong as it is, it is non-renewable, so it’s important to take good care of your teeth.

Even though every drug store carries hard bristle brushes, we counsel our patients to use a soft-bristle brush. Use a gentle touch, too. Scrub too hard and you can erode enamel. It is ideal to brush immediately after eating, but brushing within 60 minutes of a meal has benefits. The quicker you remove food from your teeth, the better it is for your enamel.

Flossing regularly is also important to keep gums healthy. Whether the food is on tooth surfaces or hidden in between, it is not doing your enamel any good.

We recommend a checkup and comprehensive cleaning every six months. Our hygienists remove tartar and inspect the health of your gums. Regular checkups prevent issues and save you money on expensive restorations down the road.

Remember: never use your teeth for opening packages! Keep scissors and bottle openers handy. We see damaged teeth and dental work as a result of patients using their teeth as tools. Biting down on something too hard, like ice or hard candy can also hurt enamel.

Lastly, remember to drink plenty of water. Try to make it your go-to beverage. Coffee, sports drinks, soda, wine, and tea all contain a lot of acids and/or sugar. These drinks cause a lot of tooth decay for non-water drinkers in the Seattle.
