Cold and Flu Season: 5 Ways to Care for Your Mouth When You’re Sick

Image
Below is an excerpt from an article found on MouthHealthy.org
When he’s feeling under the weather, ADA dentist Dr. Gene Romo says one thing always helps him feel a little more like himself. “Brushing my teeth when I’m sick actually makes me feel better,” he says. “My mouth feels clean, and in a way, I feel like my health is starting to improve.”

When you have a cold or the flu, taking care of your body is your top priority-and that includes your mouth. “It’s important to take care of your dental health all year round, but especially when you’re sick,” Dr. Romo says.

Here are some simple ways to care for your dental health when you’re not feeling well: 

Practice Good Hygiene
When you’re sick, you know to cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze. Don’t forget to keep up your dental and toothbrush hygiene as well.
According to the CDC, the flu virus can live on moist surfaces for 72 hours. “The number one rule is not to share your toothbrush anytime, but especially when you are sick,” Dr. Ro…

Children's Dental Sealants

Preventing Child Tooth Decay - the Easy Way!

Trying to brush the back teeth in the deepest part of our mouths is a challenge even when we're adults. No matter how carefully we proceed, we may miss some areas thanks to the deep grooves in our molars. This is especially true for children whose hand-to-eye coordination isn't fully developed. The collected bacteria and acid triggers plaque formation, which will lead to decay. And once a tooth has decay, it is damaged permanently and will need a filling or a crown.

The application of dental sealants helps counteract a child's inability to brush properly, protecting their teeth. The procedure is harmless, painless, and takes just a few minutes to complete. After the tooth (or teeth) is cleaned and sterilized, a thin, white or clear plastic coating is painted on the tooth. Then a curing light is directed over the sealant to bond it into place. This requires no shots, drills, or the removal of any tooth structure. Applying dental se…

Pain-Free Injection at the Dentist

The STA System™ with The Wand™

The Wand is a computer-controlled anesthetic wonder! A technology that has been clinically proven to provide a pain-free injection. Now, we can target the precise area for treatment, even a single tooth, with just one shot. That's why it's called STA, or single tooth anesthesia. Best of all, it requires only one to two minutes to become effective, as opposed to administering an anesthetic that numbs your entire lip and takes 8 to 12 minutes. Not only is this a more accurate and safer delivery of anesthesia, but the STA lasts as long as traditional anesthesia. That's what we call a medical advancement!

Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect Smile

Dental implants represent the ideal solution for replacing your missing teeth. From the front of your mouth, where they're easily seen, to the back, where they offer a platform to chew a large variety of foods, implants can help you achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which set on your gums, dental implants are placed below the gumline. The "tooth" installed on an implant appears life-like, because it pushes through your gums just like your original did – it's like growing a new tooth! Multiple missing teeth can be restored with implants. Even people who've lost all their teeth can benefit from implants, because they can secure their dentures, resulting in teeth that don't shift when they talk and don't need to be removed at night. After an oral surgeon installs a titanium post, Dr. Chad or Dr. Adam will custom make a natural-looking restoration. Get the smile you deser…
