    Dr. Frankel with Patient


    Make sure you visit your dentist on a regular basis.  It may not bother you not there still might be an issue. Dental disease can be silent. Prevention is the key to a healthy smile.

    Dr. D

    We all know flossing daily is important. Do what I do. Floss in the shower!


    We have seen an increase in dental decay in children and adults. Avoid pop, coffee creamer and juice. Your teeth will thank you.


    Floss no matter what the news reports tell you. Flossing works!


    Ladies, to add drama to your whitened teeth wear red/blue lipstick.  Your teeth will look even brighter.


    If you have sensitive teeth MI paste really works even when whitening!


    Always, always, always wear your retainers after braces. If you lose your retainers replace them as soon as possible. Teeth move back to where they were before ortho if you don’t wear your retainers.


    Electric toothbrushes do work. I think Philips Sonicare is best.


    If you want whiter teeth, even dark tetracycline stained teeth can be whitened with the KOR Whitening System.


    Learn how to floss properly. Many people really don’t know how to floss.


    Give your children an enjoyable dental experience. Read books about dental visits, brush teeth together and mention how much you like going to the dentist. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body. What better gift could you offer to your children?

    Toledo Dentist offers three easy ways to take care of small issues before they become big problems.

    1. Visit your dentist at least twice a year.

    Preventative care is the cornerstone in building a healthy mouth. If it has been awhile since you have been to the dentist, schedule an appointment. Work out a treatment plan with your dental professionals. Once dental health has been restored, visit twice a year. Keep your smile healthy!

    2. Use your insurance benefits.

    Don’t let time pass when it comes to dental health. Schedule your dental appointments early in the year. Often dental office schedules are filled toward the end of the year.

    3. Floss and brush.

    What you do at home is as important as the best professional dental care.

  3. When was the last time you flossed?

    You may think you have a good oral routine by brushing twice a day, but flossing is as equally important. Brushing cleans the surface of your teeth, but flossing helps to clean food particles in between your teeth. Bacteria can hide in the gaps between your teeth which can lead to cavities, plaque and gum disease.

    Make flossing a part of your bedtime routine when you have more time in the day — take the time to floss slowly and carefully. If you have children, make it a family event so children start healthy habits early.


    This video shows an interesting technique for flossing children’s teeth.

    There are different types of floss available such as wax floss and floss picks – try different types to see which work the best for your mouth.

    To make sure you’re flossing correctly, ask your dental team at your next appointment if your technique is correct.

  4. Loose Tooth?

    Pamela and Alexa 2009

    Does your child have a tooth hanging by a thread? Should you tie the tooth to a piece of string and shut the door? When children lose their teeth , it can be an exciting or scary time.

    Dr. Frankel has some tips on the best way to pull that loose tooth:

    1. Have the child wiggle the tooth back and forth with their tongue.
    2. Try to eat crunchy foods such as apples, carrots and pears.
    3. Brush your teeth to help move the tooth back and forth.


    Don’t force a tooth to come out that’s not ready as it can cause infection. Be patient if the tooth or your child is not ready.

    When the tooth does fall out, gargle with water and don’t be alarmed if there is some blood. Don’t forget to leave a note or prize from the tooth fairy to keep this experience fun and exciting!
