Addressing Different Forms Of Dental Discoloration

Stay Smart About Your Oral Health Care When You Travel

You may be away from home, but your need for quality oral care is with you no matter where you go. Travel can be disruptive to our routines. This can be something to look forward to – after all, part of the fun of going on vacation is escaping our usual responsibilities. However, you may find it more difficult to take proper care of your smile while you are on the move. For instance, your consumption of sugary foods and drinks may spike as you spend time on a long drive, or in a hotel where you have no way to cook for yourself. You could also find that your out of town activities are demanding you adjust your usual morning and evening routines. If you maintain good oral health habits, even while you travel, you can improve your chances of receiving a clean bill of health during your next dental exam. (more…)

Why You Should See Bruxism As A Serious Oral Health Threat

If you think of bruxism – an unconscious habit of grinding your teeth – as merely an annoyance, you should know that it can pose a serious threat to your oral health.
