Best Food Choices For A Healthy Mouth

Hendersonville Dentist talks about healthy food choices

Did you know different foods you eat can hinder or help your oral health? Some of the best food choices for your mouth include; cheeses, nuts, chicken, milk, and other meats. These foods protect the enamel on your teeth by providing calcium and phosphorus which are needed to remineralize your teeth. Some other food choices that are healthy for your teeth are apples, pears, and vegetables. These foods have high water content which dilutes the effects of sugar they may contain.

Hendersonville Dentist explains why certain foods are bad for your teeth

We all enjoy eating junk food, but majority of the food we want to eat and enjoy eating are poor choices for our teeth. Certain foods include, cakes, french fries, chips, pretzels, bananas, raisins, breads & muffins, mints and hard candies. Majority of these foods contribute to tooth decay because they continuously coat the teeth with sugar.

New Dental Prevention for our Hendersonville Patients

We have made some big strides in Hendersonville for preventing cavities.

I am super excited about this. Yesterday I saw a friend who had a root canal recently. 3 years ago it was a small cavity.  We are becoming much more passionate about dental prevention, about patient education and early dental treatment!

I fully believe that every root canal I do, is the product of me not getting a sealant on that tooth 5 years ago, or us not communicating to you how important flossing is.

I would much rather educate someone on how destructive sodas are, than do a root canal and crown. These procedures take away most of your tooth, and nothing is as good as what God gave us. Just a few things we are excited about around here. Click here for more info.

Our Hendersonville Dentist Office is expanding!

Hendersonville Family Dentistry is expanding into the empty space next door.

The architect has done the main drawings for the new section of the dental office. We are increasing our size by over 50%. This will allow us to bring in another Dr. and to offer more services, letting us serve our patients better. This will allow us to continue to except walk ins, by giving us more space.

We never want to turn anyone in tooth pain away, and this will help out a lot.

The office will probably not even have to close during the renovation, and we hope that the process will be finished 30 days after they start. Hope everyone has a great weekend. Click here for more info on our office

Hendersonville Dentist and Teeth Whitening

What is the difference between the DASH and ZOOM whitening ?

In our office, we charge a flat $299.00 for the DASH whitening and $425.00 for our ZOOM whitening.

Other than the price, clinically there are a couple of differences between the two.

Another difference is the time in the chair that you spend. When doing the ZOOM treatment, you are in the dental chair for about two hours. The DASH whitening is almost half of that time. Depending on the patient, DASH can take anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes.

The ZOOM whitening uses a light during the procedure, where as the DASH whitening uses a stronger bleach than the ZOOM.

How To Brush Your Teeth Hendersonville Dentistry Style

Dental Hygiene is very important for your health. 

When brushing your teeth, you always want to make sure to use a soft bristle tooth brush, or an electric tooth brush. Angle the tooth brush at a 45 degree angle towards your gums in light, circular motions. Make sure not to brush too hard as this could cause recession, in turn, causing symptoms of sensitivity.

If you use an electric tooth brush make sure you let the tooth brush do the work. Be sure to use minimal pressure when applying the electric tooth brush to your teeth. 

If you have any other questions feel free to ask your Hygienist at your next cleaning appointment!
