Hiccups In Your Dental Routine

Black Hills cosmetic dental veneers

The most common times people stop to brush their teeth are morning and night – either before or after breakfast, after dinner, or at bedtime. Common concerns that come with this routine involve hiccups in the schedule, from family life, shift work or exhaustion.

Sometimes after dinner time isn’t super cut and dried. Many Custer families face irregular weeknight routines. As the school year progresses, some have games to attend, band concerts, play practice, youth groups or other weeknight commitments. An irregular schedule ordinarily disrupts regular dental maintenance.

Many Mount Rushmore workers have daily commutes or shift work to battle with. Due to the changing landscape of Custer’s job market and the greater variety in shift schedules we see patients who are adjusting to irregularities in sleep patterns. This leads to exhaustion and often sleep takes priority over consistent brushing – either morning or night.

The most important time to be sure to brush is after eating sugar or carb-intensive foods. These foods kick start bacteria growth on the teeth without vigilant attention.

Highly acidic foods weaken the enamel, so it is best to swish with water immediately after consuming acidic foods to diminish the acid. Then brush about 30 minutes later when the mouth is less acidic. The fluoride in toothpaste helps remineralize the enamel.

Our amazing staff at Destination Dentistry have been assisting South Dakota families since 1978 to prevent hiccups in their dental routines. See how we demonstrate professional and educated instruction at https://www.destinationdentistry.net/about-destination-dentistry/.

Destination Dentistry provides more than just CEREC Same Day Porcelain Crowns or family dentistry. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, sedation dentistry, and TMJ/TMD treatment there is hygiene education and cleanings to be discussed. Sure, the cost of cosmetic dentistry, dental veneers, invisalign braces and dental bridges can all seem confusing. The key is to stay on top of the vital habits that you can control. We can help you make sense of the other stuff.

Regular checkups are vital for catching decay, infection or other problems early so let us make an appointment for your next preventative visit and keep those hiccups from causing permanent damage. Call us at 605-593-9821  to schedule!

  • …I had no discomfort (with the laser). Yes, an awareness of ’something done’, but no pain what so ever! You did a good job Doc. If anyone wants to ask me, I’ll tell them. It’s time for the old Bard Parker blade to be relegated to the history file. Thank you for your skills.
