Did You Know?

Dr. Ryan shares some important Dental Health and Wellness Tips for you...

  • Dry Mouth

    Dry mouth is a common problem which can increase your risk of tooth decay and discomfort of the oral tissue. Use of sugar free (xylitol containing) mints, gums, gels, and rinses can help alleviate symptoms and prevent decay.
  • Headaches

    Do you have headaches, jaw muscle soreness of cracking teeth? Watch out for bruxism-clenching of grinding your teeth which can cause discomfort and or damage
  • Sugar Content

    Be aware of sugar content and acidity in sodas, sports drinks, juices, and flavored waters. Bathing teeth in acids and sugar can lead to tooth decay.
  • Cleaning Between Teeth

    There are options available for cleaning in between teeth and around dental care: A Waterpik is an easy and effective method. Floss holders and soft-picks can also make access top all areas easier.
  • Bleeding Gums

    Bleeding gums are not normal and can be a sign of an infection-gingivitis or periodontitis
  • Daily Plaque

    Daily removal of plaque and bacteria from teeth and crowns/bridges is recommend. This can be done with use of floss or Waterpiks to help prevent decay and gum disease
  • Tooth Decay

    Tooth decay is a preventable disease called caries. Everyone can be at risk- bacteria, acids, and refined sugars all increase your risk
  • Sensitive Teeth

    Sensitive teeth are a common problem which can be triggered by cold, hot, sweet and sour food or drinks. Desensitizing toothpastes like Sensodyne and use of a soft toothbrush can help prevent this sensitivity.
  • Tooth Whitening

    A custom made tooth whitening system can significantly brighten your smile.
  • Dental Sealants

    Dental sealants can protect teeth from the attack of acids and bacteria found in plaque. The resin material flows into the pits and grooves.of the teeth and provides a barrier of protection.
  • Mouth Guards

    Custom made mouth-guards and sports guards can help prevent damage from clenching, grinding and trauma.
  • Dental Implants

    Dental implants may be a permanent solution for tooth loss. Replacement of 1 or more teeth can give the look and feel of natural teeth and help keep adjacent teeth healthy.
  • The Mouth Connection

    Certain teeth can lower the body's healing resistance to infection and increase inflammation. Oral infections can also make some illnesses harder to maintain, such as diabetes and heart disease. Regular medical and dental visits are recommended.
