Take a moment to review some basic information and maintain a healthy mouth. Choose your weapon – Select a brush with soft bristles that fits your mouth and is comfortable to hold. Perfect your technique – Hold your brush at a 45-degree angle to your gums. Use short strokes and an up-and-down motion. Add another rep – Brush two times a day is great, but three times is ideal. Watch the Clock. Or TV. – It’s best to spend two minutes a day. A favorite show can help pass the time. Surprise your mouth – Switch up your brushing pattern to keep from … Continue reading →

Nerves can shrink and your teeth become less sensitive, thus making it harder to notice problem areas. Like cavities, which never stop being a threat to our teeth, no matter how old we get. Gum disease is also a major issue. It’s caused by bacteria between the teeth and is the leading cause of tooth loss. Signs of trouble Oral cancers are a health concern for everyone but far more likely to affect people over the age of 65.

So what is the first step? I would recommend measuring where you’re at before you start. If I may explain. Have you ever been on a diet? How do you know if it’s working? You measure. Before you start on the diet, you jump on the scale. And as time progresses with your diet, you jump on the scale to check if the pounds are coming off. How often do you jump on the scale? Every other day? Once a week? Before you start your diet, how many pounds are you hoping to loose? How many pounds … Continue reading →

Gum tissue recession occurs when the tissues around the teeth pull away from the tooth and bone, exposing root surface.  It can occur anywhere in the mouth and happen at any age. Why is recession an issue? Exposed root surfaces are normally covered and protected by bone and tissue. Once exposed, these become more susceptible to decay as root surface is softer than enamel. They are also more susceptible to erosion from acidic foods, … Continue reading →

There are many effective methods Today’s tooth bleaching materials are composed primarily of either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Many whitening techniques have proven to be effective, although results vary depending on type of stain, type of bleaching product and other factors. 2. Different shades yield different results Certain stains respond better to bleaching than others. Whitening products work the best on teeth with yellowish color. Brown staining doesn’t respond quite as well. Teeth with a grayish or purple color are typically the most difficult to whiten. 3. You’ll repeat the process Tooth whitening is not permanent.

But when you experience any of these symptoms you should consider making an appointment right away. 1. Loose Teeth This can be an indication of gingivitis, which is inflammation of the gums caused by bacteria. Left untreated, it can advance into periodontitis and put your teeth in jeopardy. 2. Temperature Sensitivity A reaction to hot or cold foods may be a sign of decay in a tooth, a loose filling or an exposed root surface resulting from gum recession.

Seth Godin at the dental office. https://seasons-of-smiles.com/seth-godin-dental-office.htm https://seasons-of-smiles.com/seth-godin-dental-office.htm#respond Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:02:16 +0000 https://seasons-of-smiles.com/?p=12905 I’m not exactly sure when or how I got on Seth Godin’s blog mailing list. Nevertheless, I did subscribe.  So every morning I get a morsel, a tidbit, a thought.  More often than not, I have to read it two times, three times, and I must admit there are times I’m not 100% sure that I understand what he is trying to say. May 2nd of this year Seth had a blog post about hygiene.  When I started reading it, it piqued my interest. Can we take what he has to say about hygiene in gereral, and apply what he says to dental hygiene? “Way better than getting hit in the face with a 2 x 4.” – Seth Godin Instead of … Continue reading →

Making someone’s day with a small gesture. https://seasons-of-smiles.com/making-someones-day-with-a-small-gesture.htm https://seasons-of-smiles.com/making-someones-day-with-a-small-gesture.htm#comments Tue, 28 Jun 2016 14:11:34 +0000 https://seasons-of-smiles.com/?p=12525 Working in the field of dentistry can be challenging. This is largely because coming to the dentist is not always high on people’s list of favorite things to do. And this is completely understandable. Having a gloved, masked, person 15 inches from your body and working in your mouth is intimidating to say the least. Also, if you have had a previous negative experience, it adds to the anxiety of going to the dentist. We often hear comments like “No offense, but I don’t like the dentist” or “I hate coming here.”  While we do understand, and try not to take it personally, there are times when it can be very deflating for us to hear. I recently had a patient who … Continue reading →

QDP success Story with Brad Dodge https://seasons-of-smiles.com/qdp-success-story-with-brad-dodge.htm https://seasons-of-smiles.com/qdp-success-story-with-brad-dodge.htm#respond Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:42:15 +0000 https://seasons-of-smiles.com/?p=12680 No Insurance? No Problem! Dental insurance doesn’t have to be a patient’s only option for affordable dental care. Let’s face it, in this ever changing health care environment one thing that remains a constant is a patients need to be treated with the respect and the doctors need to remain at the forefront of delivering the necessary care customized for each unique patient. It’s a timeless relationship that, all to often, is reduced due to the constraints of traditional insurance models. Many people put off dental care because of a lack of “dental insurance” and the perceived high costs of treatment. According to a study done by the UC Berkeley Labor Center, nationwide, about 3.7 million Americans have lost health … Continue reading →

So when I came home I started investigating online.  I think one of my favorite YouTube videos I saw was some fishermen using the Drone to do some Tuna fishing.  I had some mixed feelings for the Tuna involved, but the film footage and the application of how the drone was used was fascinating. We live in a beautiful part of the world, I was curious what it would look like 400 feet up from 100 Elm Street in Camden Maine. Aren’t you curious too? Is 400 ft. the … Continue reading →

Lets go lets go!” hollered our beloved hygienist Samantha Quinn–today was the day our office got to have a little fun while showing our support for Red Nose Day. We waltzed into the office, decked ourselves out in noses, glasses and necklaces. We half posed, half partied while pictures were snapped–but wait–what exactly is Red Nose Day? Don’t worry, we wondered too. For those of you who don’t know, Red Nose Day is a day dedicated to spreading awareness for children in need in the UK and Africa, … Continue reading →
