  1. January is always filled with new goals, professional, wellness, familial and more. While many resolutions focus on physical fitness or personal growth, let’s not overlook the importance of prioritizing our oral health. As we always say, a healthy mouth promotes a healthy body! Frankel Dentistry encourages you to make a commitment to your smile and oral health this January and beyond.

    Maintaining good oral health goes beyond just brushing and flossing! It plays a crucial role in your overall health and quality of life. Poor oral hygiene can lead to various dental issues, including cavities, gum disease, diabetes, stroke, and other cardiovascular issues. By prioritizing your oral health, you’re investing in overall wellness..

    Why should oral care be a priority?

    1. Preventive Care Saves Money and Pain:

    Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help identify and address dental issues early on, saving you from costly and painful treatments in the long run.

    1. Boost Your Confidence:

    A healthy and radiant smile can significantly boost your self-esteem and confidence. Start the year with a commitment to achieving and maintaining that confident smile. Are you or someone you know looking for restorative or cosmetic care? Frankel Dentistry is here to help you fall in love with your smile again.

    1. Overall Health Benefits: Studies have shown a strong connection between oral health and overall health. By taking care of your teeth and gums, you’re contributing to a healthier body. Did you know individuals with Periodontal Disease are twice as likely to have heart disease.

    Tips for Prioritizing Your Oral Health in 2024:

    1. Schedule Regular Dental Check-ups:

    Make it a habit to visit Frankel Dentistry for regular check-ups and cleanings. We recommend at least two visits a year! Our comprehensive exams and cancer screenings are efforts to identify any dental issues early on.

    1. Maintain a Consistent Oral Care Routine:

    Brushing twice a day, flossing, and using mouthwash are simple yet effective habits that can go a long way in preserving your oral health. We also suggest tongue scraping and changing out your toothbrush head every three months.

    1. Watch Your Diet:

    Limit sugary and acidic foods, as they can contribute to tooth decay. Instead, focus on a balanced diet that promotes overall health. Still want some fun drinks? Black coffee, unsweetened tea, and water.

    1. Quit Smoking:

    If you smoke, consider quitting. Smoking not only stains your teeth but also increases the risk of gum disease and oral cancer.

     

    This January, make a resolution to prioritize your oral health with Frankel Dentistry. A commitment to regular check-ups, a consistent oral care routine, and healthy habits can lead to a happier, healthier smile in 2024 and beyond. Your future self will thank you for the investment in a confident and vibrant oral health journey.

  1. November 14th is National Diabetes Day. Patients know they need to monitor their blood sugar with diet and medication but what about dental care. Is there a connection?

    Five Connections Between Diabetes and Dental Health

    Dry Mouth

    A reduction of saliva because of diabetes can lead to dry mouth. Dental patients with dry mouth are at a higher risk of decay.

    Gum Disease

    Gum disease is a cause of tooth loss. Swollen, bleeding gums, and bone loss are symptoms of gum disease. Those with diabetes are susceptible to periodontitis partially due to elevated sugar levels and bacterial growth.

    Infection

    The immune system can be weakened by diabetes. Those with diabetes can be more susceptible to oral infections.

    Slower Healing Time

    Delayed healing time may mean dental patients take longer to recover from treatment. It may also increase the risk of infection.

    Blood Sugar Complications

    Uncontrolled diabetes may increase the glucose in saliva creating an ideal environment for bacterial biofilm or dental plaque formation. Bacterial plaque is associated with dental decay and gum disease.

     

    What to do!

     

    Regular Dental Check Ups

    See your dentist every three months for cleanings and checkups. Brush and floss daily. Keep your dentist informed regarding your diabetes.

    Be Aware

    Keep an eye out for signs of dental disease such as red swollen gums, bleeding, or tooth

    discomfort.

    Stay in Charge

    Visit your healthcare provider at regular intervals and keep your blood sugar at the levels recommended.

    Drink Water

    Stay hydrated to keep dry mouth under control.

    Do not Smoke

    Smoking can exacerbate disease and quitting will improve dental and overall health.

  1. November 1st is National Stress Day. We queried our dental professionals regarding stress reducing practices. These are the top five tips!

    1. Don’t keep it to yourself. Connect with others. Share your perspective.

    1. Just day no. Know your boundaries and hold your own.

     

    1. Keep it neat and tidy. Go to the car wash. Hire a cleaning service. Tackle the junk drawer.

    1. Take a walk or go to the gym. Physical activity is a great stress reliever.

     

    1. Breathe! Deep, squared breathing is a game changer.

     

    Try these tips. They are easy and don’t take a lot of effort. If you do suffer from TMJ which may be related to stress. Call Frankel Dentistry.

     

    A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. Bite appliances offer relief. There are additional options such as BOTOX. Many patients have found their smile and left stress behind.

    As you know, Dr. Frankel is changing lives a smile at a time and wants to see you smile!

  1. As summer comes to an end and the back-to-school season begins, it’s the perfect time to instill healthy dental habits in kids to ensure their smiles shine brightly through the year. Good oral hygiene not only supports their overall health but also boosts their confidence and self-esteem. Frankel Dentistry wants to help all our NW Ohio families care for their oral health and share their smiles confidently with their friends and peers. Here are some essential tips for parents to help teach our little ones the importance of maintaining excellent dental care during the school year.

    Brushing and Flossing!

    Start the day off strong by encouraging kids to brush their teeth for at least two minutes after breakfast and before bedtime. If brushing is a breeze, introduce flossing! Flossing removes plaque around and between teeth. Did you know if you skip out on flossing, you miss out on cleaning 40% of your tooth’s surface area.

    Choose Teeth-Friendly Snacks:

    Teaching kids to make smart snack choices can help them better care for their dental health. Try snacks like fresh fruits, veggies, yogurt, and cheese instead of sugary treats and sticky candies.

    Pack a Tooth-Friendly Lunch:

    When packing lunches incorporate dental-friendly items such as carrot sticks, cucumber slices, and whole-grain crackers. Avoid sugary drinks and try milk or water instead.

     

    Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

    Encourage your kids to drink water throughout the day. Water not only keeps them hydrated but also helps wash away bacteria and acid that can lead to tooth decay.

    Regular Dental Checkups:

    Schedule with us! Schedule regular dental visits for your little ones. We recommend bi-annual visits to the dentist to maintain strong oral health habits and catch any potential dental issues early on and ensure a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles.

    Is Your Child an All-Star? Consider a mouth guard!

    If your child participates in sports, ensure they wear a properly fitted mouth guard to protect their teeth from any injuries that could happen on or off the field during games and practices. One of the best parts about sports is the sugary electrolytes drinks we love to refuel with. Excessive sugar can lead to tooth decay, so it’s better to opt for healthier alternatives like water or diluted fruit juices.

     

    As we gear up for the back-to-school season, let’s prioritize our children’s dental health by teaching them healthy habits that will last a lifetime. By incorporating these simple tips into their daily routine, we can ensure that their smiles stay bright, confident, and healthy throughout the school year. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body! Better dental health practices could maybe even mean less sick days! Remember, instilling good oral hygiene practices set the foundation for a lifetime of dental health!

    Due for a cleaning or looking for a new family dentist? Frankel Dentistry is happy to care for you and your little ones. With two offices, flexible hours, gentle hygienists, and more, we’re here to create the best dental care experience.

  1. Tooth sensitivity can be a frustrating and uncomfortable dental issue that affects millions of people worldwide. Sharp, sudden pain that accompanies the consumption of hot or cold foods and beverages can put a damper on daily life. While there are various causes behind tooth sensitivity, it’s important to address any underlying problems rather than simply endure the discomfort. Let’s dive deeper into tooth sensitivity and how to help!

    Tooth sensitivity can be a result of many factors such as:

    Tooth enamel erosion: The protective layer of enamel can wear down over time due to aggressive brushing, acidic foods, or acid reflux. As the enamel thins, the underlying dentin becomes exposed, leading to sensitivity.

    Dental cavities: Cavities compromise the integrity of the tooth structure, causing sensitivity when the nerve endings are exposed to stimuli.

    Gum recession: Receding gums expose the tooth roots, which lack the protective enamel covering. The roots contain tiny tubules that connect to nerve endings, making them more susceptible to sensitivity.

    six tips on how to help sensitive teeth.

    Of course we recommend speaking with your dental care provider to find any underlying health concerns but if you can’t get into the office soon enough here are some tips to  help:

    Use a soft-bristled toothbrush: Brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and adopting a gentle brushing technique can prevent further enamel erosion and gum recession.

    Use desensitizing toothpaste: Specialized toothpaste for sensitive teeth contains compounds that help block nerve sensations and provide relief. Regular use can help reduce sensitivity over time.

    Avoid acidic and sugary foods: Acidic foods and beverages, as well as excessive sugar consumption, can contribute to enamel erosion and tooth decay. Limiting their intake can protect your teeth from further damage.

    Wear a mouthguard at night: If tooth sensitivity is caused by teeth grinding or clenching, wearing a mouthguard at night can help minimize the pressure on your teeth and prevent enamel wear.

    It’s important to note that these are all temporary fixes, it’s crucial to schedule regular dental visits with our team at Frankel Dentistry to address the underlying causes of tooth sensitivity! A dental professional can identify any dental issues, such as cavities, gum disease, or enamel erosion, and develop a personalized treatment plan. Routine dental cleanings and examinations are essential for maintaining optimal oral health and preventing further complications! We’d be happy to take a look at your smile!

  1. Dental Hygienists are dental healthcare providers! The scope of practice may  vary from state to state. At Frankel Dentistry, our patients tell us we have the  best dental hygienists and we agree.

    In Ohio, they perform a wide range of services, such as: 

    Examining teeth and gums to identify problems, which may include cavities,  gum disease, or oral cancer. 

    Cleaning teeth and gums. Using specific dental instruments and tools, they  remove plaque, tartar, and stains, which helps prevent tooth decay and gum  disease. 

    Taking radiographs. Dental hygienists may take x-rays of teeth and jaws to  reveal issues not visible in an oral exam. 

    Instructing and explaining toothbrushing and flossing, diet, and the use of  fluoride. Oral health education may include diseases of the teeth, gums, and  mouth. 

    Local anesthesia and nitrous oxide may be administered by dental hygienists  under the supervision of a licensed dentist. 

    Applying topical fluoride to strengthen and remineralize enamel is another  dental hygienist function. 

    Dental hygienists are invaluable members of the dental health team. Your  smile will thank you if you see your dental hygienist once every 3 to 6  months.
