Travel And Oral Health

At Exceptional Dentistry of the Golden Isles, we love hearing about your summer plans. We know many of our patients have planned exciting trips and vacations over the next few months. Traveling is always exciting and fun, but it’s important to be sure that you continue to care for your oral health while you are away. You would be surprised at how quickly your oral health can suffer if you are not diligent about your oral hygiene routine and mindful of your food and beverage choices. We want to share some oral health tips to keep in mind before your next trip:

Is It Time For Your Next Appointment?

Did we recommend a dental treatment for you or a loved one during your last visit to our office, and you have yet to schedule your appointment? Our patients live busy lives, but taking care of their oral and medical health is extremely important. Failure to care for your teeth and oral health now can lead to serious complications in the future. Even if you don’t currently need a treatment, we want to share with all of our patients how important preventative and restorative dentistry are for your oral health. Read on to learn more.

Aging And Dental Health

As we age, everyday wear and tear can take a toll on our bodies, including our teeth. Teeth and gums can also experience problems and complications related to aging, especially if we do not care for them properly when we’re younger. There is a misconception that aging will result in tooth loss, but that does not have to be the case. We have many older patients who still have all of their original teeth.

Do You Experience Tooth Sensitivity?

Do you feel discomfort when you eat or drink certain foods, especially if they are extremely hot or cold? If so, you are experiencing tooth sensitivity. Tooth sensitivity is common, and most people experience it at some point. If you have tooth sensitivity regularly, it can be an indication that there is a problem with your oral health. Tooth sensitivity can also occur after certain dental treatments, such as a filling, a dental crown, or a root canal. Before and after treatment, we tell patients about this side effect so they are not surprised when they feel discomfort.

Gum Disease Awareness Month

When you visit our office for an oral hygiene examination and cleaning, we do more than just clean your teeth. We also look for problems like gum disease, a serious gum infection caused by bacterial growth along the gumline and around the base of the tooth. February is designated as Gum Disease Awareness Month in an effort to educate people about the prevalence of the disease and the lasting effects it can have if left untreated. Gum disease affects approximately half of American adults, so it is likely that you or one of your loved ones will be affected by this disease.
