While you’re assuredly familiar with the fact that oral hygiene has a huge long-term impact on the way that your teeth look, you may not be quite as familiar to the fact that even the foods you eat can greatly affect your teeth as well. It’s true – many foods actually contain staining properties that can cause your teeth to lose their beautiful luster over time. As your Green Bay cosmetic dentist and dental team, we at Oral Health Associates would like to share with you some of these staining foods that you should watch out for as well as how to best defend against staining.

Family Dentist vs. General Dentist

When you’re looking for a dentist, we hope you’ll stop by and see your Green Bay family dentists here at Oral Health Associates! There are plenty of choices when you’re looking for a Green Bay dentist and there are many different titles that a dentist can have (general, family, pediatric, cosmetic, etc.), which can make it confusing for you to pick the one that’s right for you. We certainly don’t blame you if you’re confused on whether to visit a family dentist or a general dentist; many people (even plenty of our patients!) don’t really know what the difference is between the two. Having said that, allow us to enlighten you on the differences!

When a patient loses a tooth (or multiple teeth), it may feel like it’s the end of the world – or at least the end of having a beautiful smile! Thankfully though, with modern technological advances, there are now multiple highly-effective ways that a person can have his or her smile restored and back to looking like brand new. When you stop by to visit your Green Bay dentists, we offer a few different methods for restoring a patient’s smile. Our two most popular tooth replacement options are dentures and dental implants, each of which have their own pros and cons.

At Oral Health Associates, we understand that having a healthy smile starts from day one – when a child is first born. From that day forward, it’s important to clean your baby’s gums – even if his or her teeth haven’t erupted yet. When the teeth finally erupt, you’ll need to brush them for your child as well. This may be a new process for some, so as your trusted baby dentist and kid’s dentist in Green Bay, WI, we’d like to help explain how to best brush your baby’s teeth.

Protecting Your Teeth During Physical Activity

by wpromote on Friday, January 13, 2017 1:42 AM

When it comes to keeping your body healthy, regular exercise is one of the most powerful things you can do. Exercising regularly helps to strengthen your body, improving critical things like cardiovascular health and bone density while lowering your risk for problems like heart disease. Unfortunately, though, physical activity—indoors or outdoors—also carries a risk for your smile. Physical activity of any kind increases the risk of trauma to the teeth, which is bad news for the health and beauty of your smile. But with some thought and care, you can protect your teeth during exercise and keep both your body and your smile healthy and strong.
