What Should I Do About Sensitive Teeth?

One method to decrease sensitivity is to avoid highly acidic foods like oranges, grapefruits or lemons, as well as to cut down on acidic beverages like soda, coffee or tea. There is also a variety of toothpaste designed specifically for sensitive teeth. These pastes contain strontium chloride or potassium nitrate, which are very effective at treating sensitivity and usually yield positive results within a week of use. If sensitivity persists, visit our offices. Our dentists can apply compounds in the office to help battle this issue. For more information on sealants, contact our offices.

What is Morning Breath?

Morning breath is caused by sulfur compounds generated when bacteria breaks down food particles. During waking hours, your saliva acts as a natural mouthwash. At night, the body produces less saliva, which leads to morning breath. Chronic mouth odor can be a sign of illness and should be treated by a dentist.
