YOU KNOW THE ROUTINE: brush your teeth daily, floss regularly, and have your regular checkups with Dr. Brei twice a year. For the most part, getting in the habit of completing these simple tasks will keep your teeth healthy and strong. However, there are a few less-than-desirable oral habits that can override your good habits and compromise your dental health!
A COMMON QUESTION WE GET ASKED HERE AT OUR PRACTICE IS, “What causes bad breath?”
Many times, this complaint actually comes from a long-suffering spouse or family member rather than the actual offender. Bad breath, or halitosis, can be caused by a variety of things, some of which are serious and others of which are not. The good news is, you no longer have to hold your breath and live with it—diagnosing and treating bad breath is something Dr. Brei can do quite easily!
REGARDLESS OF HOW WELL YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR TEETH, something as common as an overly aggressive flag football game, or something as unexpected as tripping over a curb can result in a knocked-out tooth. If that happens, don’t just sit there and fret about it! If you act quickly, there’s no need to have an unatractive smile for the rest of your life!
ARE YOU WALKING AROUND WITH ONE OR MORE BROKEN, CRACKED, OR DISCOLORED TEETH? If your self-esteem has been dwindling when you smile, because of an unfortunate accident or a case of advanced tooth decay, you’re probably a prime candidate for dental crowns. Dr. Brei has a great deal of experience in many cosmetic dentistry procedures—including dental crown placement. Here at our practice we want to assist you in having a smile you’re proud to flash to the world each day.
IF YOU’RE A PARENT, YOU INTUITIVELY UNDERSTAND that your children look to you as they form their own early opinions about life and all of its complexities.
So, how does this notion relate to dentistry? Here at our practice we believe that the best way to help your children not only understand the importance of oral health, but also make it a priority in their lives, is to get them in the habit of seeing us when they’re young.
DO YOU HEAR THE WORDS “ROOT CANAL” AND CRINGE? For some crazy reason, a root canal seems to be the default treatment used in just about every tired joke that revolves around dentistry. Somehow, root canals have established an infamous reputation for being painful, causing people to do all they can to avoid them.
