Common Questions About General Dentistry

What is general dentistry?

Daily oral hygiene is essential to keeping your mouth clean and healthy. But as important as brushing and flossing are, they aren’t enough on their own to protect your teeth and gums. General dentistry covers a wide range of treatments designed to help you prevent and detect dental problems, so you can keep your oral health on track.

What foods are healthy for my teeth?

Food healthy for your teeth includes those high in calcium and phosphorus, such as dairy products, leafy greens, and almonds. High-fiber foods like fruits and vegetables can help clean teeth and stimulate saliva production. As a result, it helps neutralize acids in the mouth. Crunchy fruits and vegetables, like apples and carrots, can help scrape away plaque and massage gums. Finally, drinking plenty of water can rinse away food particles and acids that can cause tooth decay.

Is chewing gum bad for teeth?

Chewing sugar-free gum can actually be beneficial for your teeth! It stimulates saliva production, which helps wash away food particles and neutralize acids. However, gum with sugar can contribute to tooth decay. Look for gum sweetened with xylitol, a natural sugar substitute that can actually help prevent cavities. As always, moderation is key. So enjoy a piece of sugar-free gum after meals to freshen your breath and promote oral health, but be mindful of excessive chewing that can strain your jaw muscles.
