Easy Tips for Having Healthier Teeth During the Holidays

The holidays are fast approaching, and for many people, this is their favourite time of year. But the wide choice of sugary treats, late-night celebrations and additional alcohol consumption can play havoc with dental health. Follow these easy tips to maintain good dental health in Ajax during the holidays. 1.    Don’t eat too much sugar as mouth bacteria feast on the leftovers, producing harmful acid that increases the risk of tooth decay. Children’s teeth are even more vulnerable to tooth decay in Oshawa as their tooth enamel is thinner and weaker compared with adult teeth. You don’t need to avoid sweet treats entirely but avoid snacking and instead have them as part of a main meal as the mouth is already more acidic, so damage is reduced. Also, bear in mind sugar is present in many foods like dried fruits, fruit juices and other sweet beverages. 2.    If there is…

Treating and Curing Early Gum Disease

If you have recently noticed blood on your toothbrush or in the bathroom sink after brushing or flossing, you may have the early signs of gum disease, a condition called gingivitis.

However, time is limited and it’s important to see a dentist in Oshawa as soon as you notice any changes such as bleeding or swelling, or pain. Without prompt treatment, gingivitis will flourish and progress into a far more serious form of gum disease called periodontitis.
