You may or may not realize that you're screened for oral cancer during your regular dental cleanings at Hillcrest Dental Care. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, an American dies of oral cancer every hour of every day. It's a sad proposition, especially when you consider that it is highly curable with early diagnosis.
So if you’re not visiting the dentist regularly, please call our office today at (254) 848-6696 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Thrasher.
Dr. Thrasher will tell you that regular brushing and flossing lowers the chance of your children developing cavities. However, sometimes good habits alone aren't enough. The most decay-prone areas of teeth are the grooves and depressions on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. These vulnerable areas require further preventive care. To protect kids' teeth from decay, a plastic-like coating called a sealant should be painted on the chewing surfaces of all the back teeth.
It's a simple process that's extremely effective: studies have shown that sealants can reduce tooth decay by as much as 90% to 100%. Please call Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696 with any questions you may have about the benefits of using a sealant in preventing dental decay.
Tetrasodium pyrophosphate (TSPP) in toothpaste removes calcium and magnesium from the saliva so they can't form tartar on your teeth. Some toothpastes contain potassium nitrate to build protection against the pain of sensitive teeth. Baking soda adds foam and scouring ability and can fight acid-loving bacteria.
Peroxide toothpastes not only lighten the teeth but also kill germs. Finally, sweeteners and flavorings are added to mask the taste so that you'll use it. Call Hillcrest Dental Care at (254) 848-6696 and we’ll be happy to recommend a toothpaste that’s right for you.
