Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

General dentistry is what we do here. We feature general dentistry solutions that will help keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking its best all through your life. This includes thorough examinations to screen for problems and to assess your teeth, gums, and mouth in general. General dentistry also includes protective measures like teeth cleanings to prevent dangerous plaque, tartar, and bacteria from causing disease, decay, and worse.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Food healthy for your teeth includes those high in calcium and phosphorus, such as dairy products, leafy greens, and almonds. High-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables can help clean teeth and stimulate saliva production. This helps neutralize acids in the mouth. Crunchy fruits and vegetables, like apples and carrots, can help scrape away plaque and massage gums. Finally, drinking plenty of water can help rinse away food particles and acids that can cause tooth decay.

Is chewing gum bad for teeth?

Chewing sugar-free gum can actually be beneficial for your teeth! It stimulates saliva production, which helps wash away food particles and neutralize acids. However, gum with sugar can contribute to tooth decay. Look for gum sweetened with xylitol, a natural sugar substitute that can actually help prevent cavities. As always, moderation is key. Enjoy a piece of sugar-free gum after meals to freshen your breath and promote oral health, but be mindful of excessive chewing that can strain your jaw muscles.
