Soft Drinks Can Be Hard on Teeth!

From a dental point of view, there's nothing soft about so-called soft drinks. Sugar does not directly damage teeth. That happens when certain bacteria in the mouth release acids that eat into tooth enamel. These bacteria, however, need food to survive and refined sugar is a very potent source. What you eat, they eat. If not eliminated promptly, they hang around to do their dirty work.

The real culprit in carbonated soft drinks, however, is the fizz itself: carbonic acid. A sugary, un-carbonated drink like Kool-Aid is actually easier on teeth than, say, Diet Pepsi. So watch your consumption of soft drinks and be sure to contact Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696 to schedule a dental checkup.

It's Best To Detect Dental Problems Early

Cavities and broken fillings are easy to treat when they’re caught in the early stages. Without regular trips to the dentist, these problems will only get worse and can lead to expensive and uncomfortable root canals, gum surgery and tooth extraction.

You owe it to yourself, and your pocketbook, to get regular dental care. Contact Hillcrest Dental Care today at (254) 848-6696 to schedule an appointment for a checkup and cleaning.

When Should My Child First See a Dentist?

'First visit by first birthday' sums it up. Your child should visit a dentist when the first tooth comes in, usually between six and twelve months of age. Early examination and preventive care will protect your child's smile now and in the future. If you have questions regarding your baby's teeth, please call Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696 and we’ll be glad to provide the answers.
