As tables across the nation become laden with all types of deliciousness that is only offered at this time of year, it is prudent to keep your oral health in mind. The days can get hectic with partying, visiting, shopping and preparations. This is especially true as so many families did not have the opportunity to celebrate together last year. In the middle of all the rush and fanfare, your oral health may suffer, unless you make it a priority.

It Is More Important Than You Think
Your mouth is always full of both good and bad bacteria. Skipping your oral hygiene routine gives the bad bacteria a chance to grow. This produces an environment ripe for disease to develop in your teeth and gums. Two other factors, stress and wearing a mask for hours at a time, also produce conditions that give way to disease. In a nutshell, this time of year can produce conditions that are likely to cause problems with your teeth and gums without proper care.

Hints for a Busy Person
You may be one of the people who has a list a mile long of things to accomplish in the next few weeks. At the end of the day, all you want to do is collapse in bed and rest. Brushing and flossing can wait until morning when you have more energy. But while you are sleeping, those bad bacteria are proliferating in your mouth, producing acids and toxins that are eating away at tooth enamel and irritating gums into gingivitis.

Fortunately, there are simple things you can do throughout the day that will help keep your mouth healthy.

  • Stay hydrated – Keeping your mouth and body hydrated through the day will go a long way in keeping your teeth and gums healthy, especially if you must wear a mask.
  • Use disposable toothbrushes – These handy little devices are small and discreet and some even come with toothpaste already loaded. A quick trip to the restroom is all that is needed for you to brush between meals.
  • Floss when you can – Perhaps you have pulled up to a stoplight and seen someone in the next car over using a flossing device. It may not be all that private, but they are attending to their oral health.
  • Eat healthy, crunchy foods – Believe it or not, carrots, apples and such types of foods are good for your body and teeth. In addition to providing healthy vitamins, they also serve as natural toothbrushes to help remove some of the food particles from your teeth. It is no substitute for regular brushing, but in a pinch, it helps.
  • Make your oral health a priority – Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and that can only happen when you take care of them.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
