How To Manage Your Sensitive Teeth

If you're already suffering from overly sensitive teeth, there are products that can help. Toothpaste designed for those with sensitive teeth can reduce the pain associated with the condition after only a few days of use. Also, be sure to stick with a soft-bristled toothbrush - hard toothbrushes will only exacerbate the problem. Brush and floss daily to maintain healthy gums and protect dentin from exposure.

Call Hillcrest Dental Care today at (254) 848-6696 to schedule an appointment.

Oral Health for Seniors

At Hillcrest Dental Care we believe that the good habits of effective daily brushing and a healthy diet will help the aging person adapt to changing conditions. Reduced salivary flow and addition of medications can affect oral health dramatically.

Teeth may darken because of long-term exposure to plaque and changes in the dentin within the tooth. The gums may recede and uncover the roots, making them more prone to decay. Poorly-fitting or poorly-cleaned dentures, illness, and some medications increase the severity of the problem. For more information regarding dental problems of seniors, please call our office at (254) 848-6696.

Picking a Dental Floss

It's amazing how much variety you can find in dental floss. With conventional floss, you just tear off a piece at least 18 inches and wind it around your index fingers. If you find traditional thread-like floss is uncomfortable for your gums, try dental ribbon, its smoother counterpart. Dental flossers are often regarded as being easier to manage than conventional floss. There's no need to wrap any excess thread around your fingers, which some find uncomfortable.

If you have a fixed bridge in your mouth, nifty little floss threaders allow you to thread the floss between your teeth, under the bridge work. If you have questions about dental floss, just call Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696 and we’ll be happy to make a recommendation.
