When you’re looking at an entire new year, which means 12 months of time with which you may either become extremely successful with your smile health (or just the opposite), you may wonder if there are any helpful tips that will allow you to more easily manage your time. You know that every single day, you need to brush your smile and floss it, too. However, what else might you need to remember to accomplish or do over the course of 2019 and every year after that? Let our Cleveland, TX team offer a bit of preliminary guidance according to months of time for a simple way to get started with effective smile protection.
There are some things that are obviously the result of your snoring habit. For instance, if your partner is agitated because they can’t sleep, or your mouth is excessively dry when you wake up in the morning. Yet, when snoring is consistent, there are also several other affects that might not immediately seem connected, such as tiredness and fatigue related to poor sleeping patterns. Patients in Cleveland, TX, who experience chronic snoring can often alleviate it, and its various consequences, with the help of a custom-designed sleep appliance. (more…)
For many patients who have bruxism (chronic teeth-grinding), the problem often becomes most noticeable at night. However, because they’re asleep, their loved ones are often the first ones to notice it due to the sound that grinding teeth make. The loud sound indicates the force with which teeth grind together, and the potential damage that it can cause if left untreated. Fortunately, we can help many patients at our Cleveland, TX, dental office address the problem and stop grinding their teeth with the help of a custom-designed bruxism appliance. (more…)
Recovering from tooth loss is an important part of modern dental care, and for many patients, dental implants are often the preferred method of doing so. That’s because they offer your replacement teeth something that your smile desperately needs – effective replacements for your lost teeth roots. Patients at our Cleveland, TX, dental office often experience a much higher-quality and more lifelike replacement option thanks to the help of dental implants. (more…)
Well, it’s here! The new year is just around the corner, full of potential, including the potential for the smile you’ve always wanted in Cleveland, TX. What is keeping you from exploring the options that could correct smile issues once and for all? Even when teeth are healthy, it’s not unusual to have that “if only…” feeling when you look in the mirror or see pictures of yourself. If you are considering whether Invisalign clear aligners might be right for you, why not make this your year to find out for sure? (more…)
Winter’s coldest weather may not have hit yet, but lips need good care all year round. The thin skin of lips (which are without oil glands and other protective helpers) can be particularly hard hit by winter weather. When you think of an attractive smile in Cleveland, Texas, you know that good oral health is important, but the state of lip skin is another important factor. Chapped lips are not only unattractive, they are also uncomfortable, and when there is severe cracking, they can invite infection in as well. (more…)
When the topic of chewing gum comes up, many people will instantly insist that they are sure it’s bad for one’s smile health. Others may admit to chewing it, even though they figure they shouldn’t be. Then, some feel completely confused by the topic. Where would you say that you land on the spectrum of gum-chewing certainty? If you feel you have a bit of room left for some additional oral health related education, then our Cleveland, TX team invites you to gather up new gum facts with our quick but insightful question-and-answer session.
You might not be too enthusiastic about the idea of gifting yourself a dental filling for the holidays. However, our Cleveland, TX team likes to remind our patients that taking care of tooth decay and getting your smile back in good working order (and back to its previous state of beauty) is often a powerful decision that’s too frequently overlooked. If you’re thinking that the last thing you want to give yourself for the holidays is a dental-related present, think again! You will see why we feel as we do.
With every new year, we tend to build ourselves up, making proclamations about all of the wonderful things we will do for ourselves as the year begins to unfold! Unfortunately, it’s quite easy for that enormous amount of motivation to dwindle over time. So, you may be asking our Cleveland, TX dental team: How to keep that motivation running high, as you do your best to keep sight of your oral health throughout 2019?
