How to Ease The Pain of an Oral Burn
Posted on 10/15/2019 by Bisson Dentistry
We all know to be careful that we don't burn our skin. However, the skin isn't the only area of your body that could potentially suffer from a burn. Your mouth could also very easily get burnt. Let's say you're in a pizza place and your delicious pizza has finally been served. You're so excited about eating it that you don't take a moment to check how hot the pizza is. You bite deep into it and you get your hard palate burnt. You could also get burnt when you sip extra hot coffee or when you eat especially hot food. The thing about your mouth is that it can take a lot. It was built to take a lot of hard foods and chew them to a pulp and also to handle foods of different temperatures. However, the mouth also has lots of sensitive tissues that can easily get injured by intense foods. That's exactly what happens when you get an oral burn. How to Avoid Dental Burns In fact, the tissues in your mouth are even more sensitive to burns than many other kinds of soft tissues in your body. The same food that can easily burn your mouth might not even cause a mark if placed on your skin. That's why you have to be extra careful when eating foods and drinking drinks of different temperatures. When to Seek Medical Assistance Once you get an oral burn, your first priority should be to alleviate the pain in the interim before you come to our offices for medical assistance. Consider taking ice cubes or cold foods like ice cream to soothe the burn. You can even have sugarless gum. Once that's done, don't hesitate and visit our offices so we can have a look at the burn and prescribe the right medication for you. Whatever you do, however, do not try to treat it yourself. Leave it to the professionals!...

Gifts That Help Promote Good Oral Health
Posted on 9/25/2019 by Bisson Dentistry
If you want to give your loved one a unique birthday, Christmas, or anniversary gift this year, consider something that will promote good oral health. We call all use help once in a while in remembering the importance of good oral health, and one of these gifts can do just that. These are a few great options. Dental Floss Nobody really enjoys flossing, and it is one step in the dental hygiene routine that many people skip. Gifting someone some dental floss is a good way to remind them of the importance of flossing. There are many varieties available, and you can choose an interesting flavor that will make the process of flossing more fun for the recipient. An Electric Toothbrush Give the gadget lover in your family a unique gift in the form of an electric or battery powered toothbrush. Depending on the brand, these brushes may play music and offer unique settings that can improve the brushing experience. A quick Google search can show you the many options available. Sugarless Gum Do you have a gum lover in your inner circle? If so, sugar free gum will be a gift that they enjoy without worry about their teeth. Acids in the mouth can devastate the enamel, but chewing on sugar free gum can help by stimulating the production of saliva. Make sure you purchase gum that contains Xylitol, an artificial sweetener that has been proven to reduce cavities. Cleaning Aids While a toothbrush and floss are the main cleaning aids that you'll need for a healthy mouth, some people like special picks to keep their mouths clean. These may be useful to people who find it hard to use traditional floss. In addition to one of these great oral hygiene gifts, encourage your loved ones to visit our office every six months for a checkup. Call us today to learn more....

How Can Hard Bristles Harm Your Teeth?
Posted on 9/15/2019 by Bisson Dentistry
Hard bristles are generally not recommended for brushing. You want to remove the plaque and bacteria from the middle of the teeth, as well as the top, undersides, and other areas of the teeth. When using and choosing a toothbrush, we recommend that you choose a softer bristled brush. This is due to the fact that this is easier on the teeth. Knowing the reasons why a harder bristled brush is not recommended can help you choose the best toothbrush to brush your teeth with and provide the smile you need and want. Why Soft Bristles are Better Than Hard Ones Soft bristles are better for the teeth than hard ones because they easily move over the teeth and in between the teeth to remove the bacteria and plaque from the teeth. They do this without ruining the enamel on the outside of the teeth, or the teeth themselves. Hard bristles can actually ruin and damage the outside of the tooth. When the enamel of the tooth is scraped down, this can cause a lot of problems in the mouth. You don't want this to happen because you will end up having to come into our office time and time again to fix a tooth that has broken down. The enamel is what protects the tooth. Without this protection, it can cause a lot of problems. Skip having to visit us all the time, take care of your teeth by using soft bristles. Take the time to learn more about the brushing that can be done when you give our office a call. We can schedule a time to see you, provide an exam, or a cleaning with our professionals. Getting the best dental care is important for your smile and your health. Call us today so we can work with you on your oral hygiene and health....
