I am here to address a topic that I think is timely for the upcoming Holiday Season and that’s brought up frequently by my patients.
There are many grooming habits that have become mainstays in our population. From deodorant to hair removal, we operate in a society that incorporates hygiene and appearance into our daily routines. Now that achieving a whiter, brighter smile has become the new norm, many people ask me, “Which is the best method to achieve and maintain a fresh, clean smile?”
I’ve researched various options and of course, as a dentist, many companies try to engage me in offering their products. But the one I feel is not only the safest, but the most effective and beneficial to my patients is the Zoom!™ Teeth Whitening System. The process is painless and occurs in one visit, generally in less than 90 minutes. Teeth appear six to ten shades whiter (and sometimes more), and patients notice the results instantly. Even if you have highly sensitive teeth, ask me about products that are formulated to minimize sensitivity so you, too, can enjoy the benefits of a whiter brighter smile.
The color of our teeth dull over time due to age, staining foods and drinks such as berries, wine, tea, and coffee, and the natural life cycle of our teeth. Zoom! ™ is the perfect choice to instantly restore a brighter smile, essentially reversing those effects through one quick and comfortable appointment. We also offer special products and tips to help you maintain your newly restored smile.
The Zoom™ whitening process is safe and effective, but I want to caution you about one thing—and that’s the drive home. Patients who have Zoom! are so astounded by their instant and noticeable results that they can’t resist admiring their smile in their car’s rear view mirror after they leave the office. I know you won’t be able to help yourself, but save those pearly whites for your smile after you arrive home safely! You’ll have a killer smile, but I can’t guarantee it’ll get you out of a traffic ticket for inattentive driving.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month, an effort to celebrate the work dental hygienists do and to help raise awareness on the importance of good oral health.
This year, the awareness month is focusing on four routines that can help people maintain healthy smiles: brush, floss, rinse and chew. According to MouthHealthy.org, the ADA’s consumer website, the ADA recommends brushing your teeth twice a day, for two minutes, with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of the brush should fit the mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.
The proper brushing technique is to:
To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.
Although recent news reports have questioned its benefits of cleaning between your teeth, it is still an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums, according to MouthHealthy.org. The ADA recommends cleaning between your teeth once a day to remove plaque that is not removed by brushing. Plaque can eventually harden into calculus or tartar.
Because teeth alone account for less than half of the mouth, rinsing can help eliminate biofilm and bacteria that brushing and flossing cannot. Rinsing often, along with brushing and flossing, may help reduce the chance of dental decay and infection. However, avoid rinses that have alcohol in them, according to MouthHealthy.org.
Lastly, clinical studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum for 20 minutes following meals can help prevent tooth decay. The chewing of sugarless gum increases the flow of saliva, which washes away food and other debris, neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth and provides disease-fighting substances throughout the mouth, according to MouthHealthy.org.

Sometimes brushing is not enough, especially when it comes to those hard-to-reach spots in your child’s mouth. It is difficult for a toothbrush to reach between the small cracks and grooves on teeth. If left alone, those tiny areas can develop tooth decay. Sealants give the teeth extra protection against decay and help prevent cavities.
Dental sealants are plastic resins that bond and harden in the deep grooves on the tooth’s surface. When a tooth is sealed, the tiny grooves become smooth, and are less likely to harbor plaque. With sealants, brushing becomes easier and more effective against tooth decay.
Sealants are typically applied to children’s teeth after their permanent teeth have erupted as a preventive measure against tooth decay. It is more common to seal “permanent” teeth rather than “baby” teeth, but every patient has unique needs, and Dr. Patel and Dr. Corbett will recommend sealants on a case-by-case basis.
Sealants last from three to five years, although it is fairly common to see adults with sealants still intact from childhood. A dental sealant only provides protection when it is fully intact so if your youngster’s sealants come off, let us know, and schedule an appointment for your child’s teeth to be re-sealed.
