Choosing the Right Toothpaste

Overwhelmed by your choices? Here's how to choose the right toothpaste for you. While your toothbrush does most of the plaque removal, abrasive agents in toothpaste will scour food particles and plaque from your teeth. Fluoride is the best-known toothpaste ingredient, added to make the outer tooth structure more decay-resistant.

Laurel sulfates, the most common surfactants, can dissolve plaque and fight bacteria. They also provide a foam that helps to carry away debris. Still not sure? Ask Dr. McClanahan for a recommendation by calling our office at (844) 535-1190.

Soft Drinks Can Be Hard on Teeth!

From a dental point of view, there's nothing soft about so-called soft drinks. Sugar does not directly damage teeth. That happens when certain bacteria in the mouth release acids that eat into tooth enamel. These bacteria, however, need food to survive and refined sugar is a very potent source. What you eat, they eat. If not eliminated promptly, they hang around to do their dirty work.

The real culprit in carbonated soft drinks, however, is the fizz itself: carbonic acid. A sugary, un-carbonated drink like Kool-Aid is actually easier on teeth than, say, Diet Pepsi. So watch your consumption of soft drinks and be sure to contact Terry A McClanahan DDS APC at (844) 535-1190 to schedule a dental checkup.

Picking a Dental Floss

It's amazing how much variety you can find in dental floss. With conventional floss, you just tear off a piece at least 18 inches and wind it around your index fingers. If you find traditional thread-like floss is uncomfortable for your gums, try dental ribbon, its smoother counterpart. Dental flossers are often regarded as being easier to manage than conventional floss. There's no need to wrap any excess thread around your fingers, which some find uncomfortable.

If you have a fixed bridge in your mouth, nifty little floss threaders allow you to thread the floss between your teeth, under the bridge work. If you have questions about dental floss, just call Terry A McClanahan DDS APC at (844) 535-1190 and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation.
