His father, Dr. Ronald Goldstein, is widely considered to be the father of modern cosmetic dentistry. It is no exaggeration, then, when this Atlanta dentist says, “It’s been in my genes since I was a kid.”Read MORE

That fluoride in your store-bought toothpaste is really helping you. Every time you brush
your teeth they are washed with this cavity fighter! If you have not viewed a recent
video of how to properly brush those pearly whites, watch this: https://youtube/
4ilGhqi57es. So, brush twice daily, morning and before bed, but most importantly, DO
NOT RINSE. Just brush and then spit out the excess and Do Not Rinse. The fluoride
in your toothpaste can keep working for a minute or so longer, bathing your teeth in this
unique cavity fighter. The result, longer lasting fresh breath, stronger teeth and less
Flossing is probably more important than brushing! That’s an extremely bold statement,
but doing the “f” word once daily will save your teeth. You see, the bacteria and food
particles that collect between the teeth are not effectively removed with a toothbrush
(unless you use a RotoDent). This nasty, smelly grime continues to get thicker and
harder until you floss or see your dentist for a professional hygiene visit.
The stress of living in our society today has wreaked havoc on the teeth of America. What does this mean? Take a look at your teeth and the ones surrounding you. If the two front teeth are not longer than the two side teeth, then most likely you may have a night grinding and clenching problem going on.
Research has shown us that almost all of us gnash and grit our teeth during sleep, its natural, like rapid eye movement. This uncontrolled rubbing is wearing down the teeth, causing people to look older than they
actually are, and in many instances altering the jaw joint and causing pain. Your best alternative to diminish or stop this from happening is to sleep in a custom-made plastic grinding appliance from your dentist. You will still grind, but instead of wearing down your beautiful teeth, you will wear down the plastic, thereby saving your enamel and possibly eliminating any headaches, and muscle pain. See your dentist to be sure
what’s right for you.
