Exploring Men’s Oral Health

Man flossing teethJune is men’s health month in the US. This month is dedicated to raising awareness about common oral and overall health concerns that affect men, especially those that are often overlooked. When it comes to dental care, research indicates that men are much less likely to keep up with their regular oral hygiene routines and preventive dental checkups. This puts them at increased risk for oral health issues that can negatively impact every aspect of their day to day life from the simplest smile to eating a healthy diet.

3 Tips for Picking the Right Water Flosser

Woman with braces using water flosserMost dental patients know that they need to brush and floss their teeth every day and visit a dentist twice a year for dental checkups. A good number of people even know that they need to choose a soft bristled tooth brush and floss that fits comfortably between their teeth. However, when you ask dental patients about water flosser, they often don’t know what these oral hygiene tools are. However, many patients could benefit from using a water flosser. In fact, they’re recommended for patients with traditional bracket and wire braces, those with dexterity concerns, and patients with gum disease. A water flosser uses high water pressure to help patients remove plaque and tartar buildup between teeth. Additionally, water flossers give patients the ability to clear plaque and tartar from the smallest pits and grooves in the smile and from around braces and dental restorations. Like any other oral hygiene product, no two water flossers are exactly the same, but you can find an effective water flosser that fits your needs and budget.

Family Dentist in Port Orange Accepts Infant Patients!

Our family dentist in South Daytona encourages practicing good infant oral health, including banishing baby bottle tooth decay. Infant tooth decay is better known as “baby bottle tooth decay.” This derives from the fact that infant teeth tend to deteriorate from the contents of their bottle if oral hygiene isn’t cared for. Just because baby teeth aren’t permanent, doesn’t mean that they are any less important. Infant teeth still need attentive care because they are simply the placeholders to your child’s adult teeth. This is an important job that our family dentist in Port Orange understands completely. Maintaining healthy baby teeth help to ensure proper development in their speech, nutrition, and even their precious smiles. Dr. Sean Bannan, D.D.S. and Dr. I. Warren Hersch both are excited to help new (and returning) parents provide the best dental health care for the newest members of our patient’s families.
