Where Do You Currently Store Your Toothbrush?
Posted on 3/15/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Do you keep your toothbrush out on the counter of your bathroom, like a good number of other people do? This is not the best place to store your toothbrush. Even if you have it stored inside of a container, this could still result in you using a toothbrush that has a lot of germs on it. The best place to store your toothbrush is in an open container within your medicine cabinet. This way, you protect it from as much debris and as many germs as possible. The Dangers Associated with Storing Your Toothbrush on the Counter It is never a good idea to store your toothbrush on the counter. This exposes your toothbrush to a wide range of debris and bacteria. Each time someone walks through your bathroom, they kick up dust, which can settle on your toothbrush. This is especially true when you have a damp toothbrush. Each time the toilet gets flushed in the bathroom, that sends out debris from whatever was in the toilet at the time. That bacteria also lands on your toothbrush, which you then put in your mouth. This is not a good idea and could result in you getting incredibly sick. You should also store your toothbrush out of the way. You want it exposed to as little bacteria and debris as possible. To keep yourself healthier, you should sterilize your toothbrush at least once per week by pouring boiling water over it, soaking it in peroxide and rinsing it before use, or putting the head of your toothbrush on the top rack of your dishwasher. This keeps the bacteria down and keeps you healthier. For more tips on keeping your toothbrush clean and sanitary, come in and ask us at your next dental checkup....

What is the Right Quantity of Toothpaste to Use?
Posted on 2/25/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
The right quantity of toothpaste is the best way to go when it comes to brushing your teeth. Many tell you not to use too much or too little. They even say don't swallow it or don't use this brand or that. It is important to know what you are putting in your mouth at all times and this can be a time to learn the many things you can use to brush your teeth and make the most of it, at the same time. Here is a small guide to jump start you through brushing your teeth and making sure you have the right quantity of toothpaste on the brush when it comes to cleaning. How Much is Enough? The recommended amount of toothpaste that is qualified as the right amount is a pea-sized amount. This is an amount that is perfect to fit on the toothbrush and to brush your teeth with. You can clean the outside of the teeth without having to worry about the sugar and other additives in the toothpaste causing problems, while also ensuring that you do not have too little to brush with. When you have too little, you are not getting enough clean or enough fluoride, which can be detrimental to your oral health. Having the right amount is something that you can always make sure to have so that you can max out on those oral health benefits that follow. You want the best and we have the best to offer you. Give us a call here to find out even more about your oral health and ways you can benefit your brushing and flossing. We can provide you with even more information when the time comes so you can feel much more confident about being able to brush with ease and know you have cleaner, healthier teeth.

Posted on 2/15/2018 by Sean Saghatchi
Not everyone loves vegetables and that is okay, but did you know that vegetables are the healthiest snack for your oral health? You can get the most out of this snack and actually enjoy all that comes with them since they are helping your overall health in addition to your oral health. Here are some great vegetables and their benefits that you can go with when it comes to getting more out of your diet and your health. Benefits and Healthy Choices of Vegetables When it comes to oral health, you want to make sure that you are making the right choice on what to eat. These vegetables have everything that you need in them, including the antioxidants and scrubbing properties that clean the outside of the teeth and make them stronger overall. All leafy greens are great because they provide the vitamins and minerals you need and want for your oral health. Apples, carrots and celery all have vitamins and minerals, but they also act as a scrubbing agent to clean the outside of the teeth. In addition to these vegetables, those that eat a healthy selection of nuts can also get the health benefits that are needed when it comes to a healthier, better looking mouth. Get more from the food you eat and the mouth you have when it comes to choosing your foods wisely. You want to choose foods that are going to provide you with a crunch, but also a big pack of vitamins and minerals you would not be able to get from other foods out there. If you want more information or to schedule a checkup to find out more about your oral health, give our office a call. We would be more than happy to provide you with an appointment or speak with you more about things you can do to make your oral health the best that it can be....
