Common Questions About General Dentistry
What foods are healthy for my teeth?

If you want a healthy smile, you’ll want a diet rich in whole grains, fiber, fruits and vegetables, calcium, and lean proteins. Make sure you avoid sugary drinks or sticky sweets, which can damage your tooth enamel. Drink plenty of water too! This washes away bacteria from your teeth and gums.

Is chewing gum bad for teeth?

Chewing sugar-free gum can be beneficial for your teeth! It stimulates saliva production, which helps wash away food particles and neutralize acids. However, gum with sugar can contribute to tooth decay. Look for gum sweetened with xylitol, a natural sugar substitute that can help prevent cavities. As always, moderation is key. So enjoy a piece of sugar-free gum after meals to freshen your breath and promote oral health, but be mindful of excessive chewing that can strain your jaw muscles.

Do dental checkups include oral cancer screenings?

Yes. Dental checkups typically involve a thorough cleaning, comprehensive exam, and dental X-rays to look for signs of problems like tooth decay or gum disease; an oral cancer screening; and time with your dentist to talk about any current or potential oral health issues that need to be addressed.
