Westchester NY Dentist Shares Importance of Children’s Oral & Dental Care for the Month of February

The month of February is National Children’s Dental Health Month, where dentists around the world help share the importance of dental and oral health. Children’s dental health has become a necessary topic to discuss because there have been several mentions where tooth decay has become a serious issue. Your Westchester NY dentist will further discuss why this campaign is so important and how to execute proper oral and dental care for children.

A large majority of children who suffer from dental decay and other oral health problems have missed many hours of school. This is one of the many reasons why parents and children alike need to learn and understand how dental health is an integral part of their daily routine. Helping your child create a brushing routine in the morning and at night will dramatically increase their oral health over time.

There are countless books, tips, brochures and campaigns that promote the importance of dentistry. This awareness isn’t only for children, but for teens and adults alike! Dental decay is easily avoidable but is still one of the most common diseases that affect thousands of people.

Make sure that you’re constantly taking care of your smile by scheduling an appointment with your Westchester NY dentist by calling today at (914) 939-2132. Share this campaign with friends and family to begun your journey to a healthy smile!

Dentist Greenwich CT Says “Quit Today!”

For years, health professionals like your dentist in Greenwich CT have been warning patients about the dangers of smoking. Within the last few years, in particular, it seems that increased government and advertising pushes have led to a decline in smoking…but the trend still impacts millions worldwide yearly.

One of the reasons, we theorize, that people do not quit smoking is because of the ill-perceived immediate harm. In other words, it takes years for MOST patients to develop a lung issue, oral or other cancer- so on and so forth. One place smokers CAN see an immediate impact, however, is their oral health. Below we have listed a few benefits you can see from quitting smoking, but for a few more benefits, as well as detailed information on the upsides, you can head here.

Fresher Breath- most smokers find the scent of their breath so unpleasant to others after a smoke that they use mints, gums and mouthwashes to cover it up. Smoking is one of the most common sources of bad breath and can be cleared up easily, and rather immediately if you quit your habit.

Whiter Teeth- tar, nicotine and other ingredients in cigarettes and tobacco products can drastically stain the teeth over time. By quitting, perhaps coupled with a visit to your dentist in Greenwich CT, we may be able to reverse the surface staining done to your teeth- if it has not “set in” yet.

For more information on how quitting your habit can benefit your smile- give the office of your dentist in Greenwich CT a call today at (914) 939-2132.

Cosmetic Dentist Westchester NY on Relieving Stains

Stains on the teeth are something that NO patient desires. For that very reason, your cosmetic dentist in Westchester NY, Dr. Fu, offers the top of the line cosmetic treatments available, including teeth whitening and so much more.

Unfortunately, we do see that even for patients who undergo a cosmetic treatment- stains are never completely out of the picture. Sure, by eating healthy, brushing your teeth twice and day and coming into see your cosmetic dentist in Westchester NY, at least, two times a year you are bettering your odds- but these are not the only factors that come into play.

As we age, our teeth change just as our bodies do. That means they react differently to stimuli than they did when you were 20 years younger. Food, beverages, habits and more can all impact the shade of your teeth depending on a lot of factors, many of which can be summed up in an article we found here.

The most important thing we feel you can take away from this is that even though you can’t always control your teeth- do everything you can to try. Schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist in Westchester NY today to discuss teeth whitening and even routine cleaning and how it can prevent stains in the future.

You can reach our Port Chester NY dental office by calling (914) 939-2132 today.
