Teeth Whitening Tips

Looking for at home teeth whitening tips?teethwhitening

Is it becoming a bigger problem as it once was with people just not taking care of their teeth like they should. Though even people that take care of their teeth have to make sure they are getting their teeth checked regularly for cavities and other harmful diseases of the teeth and gums. One thing that we all want and strive for is white teeth. If there is anything that someone wants done with their teeth, its for their teeth to be a white as possible.

Though the ADA (American Dental Association) strongly recommends that people go through in office dental whitening treatments, there are many ways to whiten your teeth at home. The various methods of whitening teeth at home are: teeth whitening strips, whitening paints, whitening toothpaste or mouthwash.

Teeth whitening strips: Lately teeth whitening strips have gained a lot of popularity because of so many different types of strips by so many brands being available. They are usually very efficient and have to be put in at least twice a day. Though by using teeth whitening strips you may come across your teeth being sensitive afterwards.

Whitening paints: The good thing about whitening paint is it works fairly quickly, and can have your teeth whitened within a matter of minutes. The bad thing about whitening paint is that it isn’t as efficient and paint or whitening is removed off very easily at times. It is most often used for quick instances and not a permanent solution.

Whitening toothpaste or mouthwash: This is by far the easiest method to whiten teeth. All you have to do is put some toothpaste on your brush or rinse your mouth with some whitening mouthwash. Though these two things have proven to be very slow in whitening the teeth, over time they are consistent and don’t require much hassle.

Importance Of Regular Dental Checkups

dental-checkupHow Important Are Regular Dental Checkups?

Living in Houston there is probably not one person you know that doesn’t own a motor vehicle. Cars are literally the only form of transportation in this big city. A person without a car is completely stranded, not being able to go about their daily activities such as: work, school, shopping, and eating. If your car were to break down one fine day, would you be upset or what? That is the exact reason people have their cars checked almost every month when they go in for an oil change, to make sure everything is fine and smooth. That is why we go in to see our family physician periodically to make sure that our bodies are functioning in the right manner. And that is the exact reason the importance of regular dental checkups in imminent.

Just like how our cars and bodies need to be checked for anything wrong or irregular, our teeth need to be checked in the same. There is no doubt that most of you take care of your teeth very competently, but there are some of you who don’t even do that. Statistics show that up to 25% of Americans have bad breath and a great percentage of that 25% actually take care of their teeth on a regular basis. But taking of your teeth yourself just doesn’t cut it. Tons of things have to be done yearly to your teeth to make sure that you are good and healthy with nothing to worry about. The regular cleaning of teeth should be done at least 1-2 times per year. This is the cleaning besides the two times a day you are supposed to brush your teeth. Simple brushing of the teeth does not have the same effect as when you professionally have your teeth cleaned to remove all the plaque that is caught up around the teeth.

Don’t fall victim to bad habits by not coming and getting your routine dental checkup. With the great staff that Dr. Marilyn K Jones has at her office you will feel right at home. Dr. Jones is one of the top dentists in the Houston area and has an immaculate track record in the health field to support her cause of making sure that you have the best and healthiest teeth possible.

Tips For Healthy Teeth

Great Tips For Keeping Your Teeth Healthyhappy tooth

Ever since we were young we have been taught that we need to brush, floss, and mouthwash to make sure to keep our teeth healthy. These three basic things are so common that we tend to even forget about their existence at times. Not paying attention to what we are doing and how we are doing it will eventually lead to our teeth not looking the way they used to. The last that thing that you want from your teeth to look like are dark yellow. The last thing that you want to go the dentist office for is a cavity. And the last type of disease that you want to have is a disease in your mouth. Keeping your teeth healthy is something that should be taken seriously and not fooled around with.

Discussed here are some tips for healthy teeth and a beautiful smile:

  • Brushing: We know that we all have to brush twice a day, but whether you are brushing the appropriate way or not is what makes the difference in your teeth being healthy or not. Always take your time when brushing your teeth; rushing is just as bad as not having brushed at all. Use bristles that are comfortable for your teeth and gums. Use the proper motion of actually brushing on your teeth by going forwards and backwards while not forgetting to brush the insides of your teeth as well.
  • Flossing: This probably the most overlooked aspect of keeping teeth healthy. People tend to dismiss flossing from their teeth cleaning routine because they feel it doesn’t do much, when in reality flossing helps reach the spot in between the teeth that a toothbrush could never reach. It helps remove all the plaque in between the teeth and surrounding the gum lining. Make sure to floss daily to ensure your teeth can be as healthy as possible.
  • Mouthwash: Though not as important as the other two methods to keep a set of healthy teeth, this is a very good way to make sure that you are keeping your teeth healthy. People that regularly mouthwash are much less likely to get gingivitis and excessive plaque. On average, people should mouthwash twice a day to make sure they are doing all they can to keep their teeth healthy and bright.

Having experience in the dental field and knowing the importance of having clean, healthy teeth is what Dr. Marilyn K Jones has been about ever since she received dental degree from the University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Jones has been a great student of health throughout her life, and knows what is needed to keep a person healthy and their teeth happy.

What To Expect At Initial Appointment With Houston Dentist?

fake-dental-appointmentThere are many things that we are new to in life and we don’t know what we are going to experience until it actually happens. No one knows how they will react to certain things, until those certain things surface and they are acted upon. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just know what to expect even though you haven’t ever experienced such a thing. Well going to a dentist’s office for the first time can be quite a nervous experience if you don’t know what to expect. Here are a few things that you can be ready to expect at your first dental appointment.

Medical History

The first thing that any physician usually wants from their patient is their medical history. Knowing what you have been through medically previously is something that the doctor really needs to know before being able to actually tend to the patient. You wouldn’t want your doctor prescribing you something that you can’t take with diabetes, if you have diabetes.

Actual Meeting with Dentist

This is probably the most obvious of the expectations that you would have when you first go to a dentist. You have to meet the person that will be working on your teeth for however many years to come. As long as they are friendly, cheerful, and inattentive to what is going on, you will be fine.

Visual Check

The dentist will sometimes do a visual check of your teeth. To make sure that you do not have any sort of cavities or diseases the dentist will take a look with a mirror and other various utensils (probe, diagnodent, intra-oral camera, x-ray). Don’t worry, not shots are coming out on this step.

Charting

As the dentist and their assistants are taking a look at your teeth, they will be charting every bit of information that they can of your teeth to better understand what is going in there. You want a dentist to take a good look at your mouth and record everything that he/she is catching on to.

When you walk into the office of Dr. Marilyn K Jones these are things that you should expect the first time. Not only should you expect these things, but you should also expect great top notch service. The staff will be something that you have yet to see in any other office, and Dr. Jones herself is so knowledgeable in her field that you will be swept away. Give her office a call today to set up an appointment at the next available date.
