How To Manage Your Sensitive Teeth

If you're already suffering from overly sensitive teeth, there are products that can help. Toothpaste designed for those with sensitive teeth can reduce the pain associated with the condition after only a few days of use. Also, be sure to stick with a soft-bristled toothbrush - hard toothbrushes will only exacerbate the problem. Brush and floss daily to maintain healthy gums and protect dentin from exposure.

Call Southdale Family Dentistry today at (952) 926-6081 to schedule an appointment.

Dental Decay & Sealants

Dr. Cook will tell you that regular brushing and flossing lowers the chance of your children developing cavities. However, sometimes good habits alone aren't enough. The most decay-prone areas of teeth are the grooves and depressions on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. These vulnerable areas require further preventive care. To protect kids' teeth from decay, a plastic-like coating called a sealant should be painted on the chewing surfaces of all the back teeth.

It's a simple process that's extremely effective: studies have shown that sealants can reduce tooth decay by as much as 90% to 100%. Please call Southdale Family Dentistry at (952) 926-6081 with any questions you may have about the benefits of using a sealant in preventing dental decay.

Oral Health for Seniors

At Southdale Family Dentistry we believe that the good habits of effective daily brushing and a healthy diet will help the aging person adapt to changing conditions. Reduced salivary flow and addition of medications can affect oral health dramatically.

Teeth may darken because of long-term exposure to plaque and changes in the dentin within the tooth. The gums may recede and uncover the roots, making them more prone to decay. Poorly-fitting or poorly-cleaned dentures, illness, and some medications increase the severity of the problem. For more information regarding dental problems of seniors, please call our office at (952) 926-6081.
