Super Smiles Have Strong Enamel

Cincinnati dental financing

Did you know that enamel is the hardest substance in the body? Found on the outer surface of your teeth, enamel should last a lifetime. But at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, experience has taught that just because it’s super durable doesn’t mean you don’t have to work to take care of it.

Here are some beneficial tips for keeping enamel healthy.

1. Pick the right foods for enamel health. It’s no secret that soft drinks hurt your teeth, and don’t think that diet sodas are harmless – the artificial sweeteners can also erode enamel over time. There are also other culinary culprits that can do a lot of harm. Sticky, chewy candies should be avoided. Chewing ice is a no-no. And don’t use your teeth as tools. Take a minute to grab some scissors before you rip open that package with your incisors.

On the flip side, foods with calcium can neutralize acid in your mouth and guard your enamel. So enjoy your dairy products like milk, cheese and yogurt!

2. Avoid vigorous brushing and use a soft brush. Also, it’s best to wait an hour after eating before you brush, because foods, especially acidic ones, can soften the enamel, thus making it more prone to damage from brushing.

3. Keep stomach acids in check. If you have a problem with severe heartburn, stomach acid could be traveling up your esophagus and into your mouth. This acid can erode enamel, so it is critical to talk to your doctor about treatment.

4. Talk to us about dry mouth and teeth grinding. Lack of saliva is a major problem for tooth enamel, and it’s no surprise that teeth grinding can also wear it down. Make sure your dentist is aware if you see either of these issues.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we’ll help you take good care of your teeth. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. We also serve patients in the Loveland, Blue Ash, and Montgomery OH area. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Tooth Whitening And Your Dentist

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures we provide at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. It seems everyone is whitening their teeth to help their smiles look younger and brighter.

Many individuals are turning to over-the-counter products to whiten their teeth. These can be effective, but come with certain drawbacks.

Here is some basic advice on teeth whitening:

First, we encourage you to visit our office before starting a whitening system. We can help you determine whether your teeth can be whitened safely and effectively. We can also recommend whitening products that will work best for you.

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products will provide varying degrees of whitening. If used incorrectly, they can lead to issues like sensitivity, over whitening, spotty coloration, and even damage to your tooth enamel.

Avoid Problems By Seeing Endres Gateway Dentistry First

We recommend you talk to us at Endres Gateway Dentistry before beginning any self-treatment. We’ll discuss the various whitening systems and check your teeth to make sure you will get the best possible tooth whitening results.

There won’t be a hard sell, but we can also talk about professional teeth whitening. We use KoR whitening, a highly effective teeth whitening system. There is an in-office treatment that can transform your smile in one office visit, and a professional-strength take-home kit you can do at your convenience, and will deliver results that are superior to anything available at the grocery store.

Teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer at Endres Gateway Dentistry. We serve patients in the Montgomery OH, Blue Ash, and Loveland areas. Schedule an appointment with us today.

Wear A Crown

Wear A Crown In Cincinnati

A dental crown is a cap or covering that fits over a tooth to restore it to its original shape and size. At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we place a lot of dental crowns.

Crowns can be made of metals, resin, ceramic, porcelain, or a porcelain-fused-to-metal material. We usually put in a temporary crown while a permanent crown is being created especially for your mouth in a dental laboratory.

Dental crowns have been used successfully in dentistry for decades.

Dental crowns are useful in smile makeovers to cover patient’s discolored or poorly shaped teeth. Strong, natural-looking crowns are also used with dental implants.

Once they have been placed, a crown fully encases the part of a damated tooth that sits above the gum line. They fit over the tooth in much the same way a thimble fits over the tip of a thumb or finger. Once they are in place they can endure the constant pressure of daily chewing, just as well as the rest of your teeth.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati we place a lot of dental crowns. Other services include family dentistry. We serve the Loveland, Blue Ash, and Montgomery areas. Make an appointment with us today.

Dental Bridge vs Dental Implant

Attention Cincinnati Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethHello Cincinnati visitors, welcome to Endres Gateway Dentistry. Let’s talk about the tooth replacement option known as dental bridges.

While dental bridges have restored smiles for thousands of dental patients, they are not problem free. Many people with dental bridges find it impossible to keep the small areas around the bridge clean. This is not surprising because it is hard to get toothbrush bristles or dental floss under the bridge.

Of course detrimental bacteria has no trouble moving in and taking over without the dental patient even knowing it. When the decay reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, the person is at risk of losing those teeth also.

That is one reason why a dental implant is superior to a dental bridge. Most people with missing teeth are great candidates for dental implants.

The crown portion of a dental implant looks just like the crown on a high-quality dental bridge, but the important part is what you don’t see.

The dental implant itself is a titanium post that is screwed directly into the jaw bone. It is not attached to teeth like the dental bridges traditionally used. In a way, a dental implant is a more conservative tooth replacement because it leaves the adjacent teeth intact. The bone and gum tissue mesh permanently with the titanium post that serves as the replacement tooth root.

Dental implants do not have the same decay risk as the teeth that anchor dental bridges. Of course patients with dental implants need to brush and floss, but cleaning a dental implant is usually no more difficult than cleaning a normal tooth.

Dental implants have a far better track record in Ohio than dental bridges. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime for smile-smart dental patients.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati we provide dental crowns and dental implants, and many other services. Call our office to schedule an appointement today.

Is Your Child Protected?

pediatric dental Cincinnati

Here’s a question from Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati: how do you maintain your dental health? The first things that come to mind are probably brushing, flossing, and getting regular dental cleanings. You might also think of diet factors such as limiting sugary drinks and getting enough calcium.

When men and women are quizzed about preventative dental care, they rarely mention athletic mouth protection. But it’s a biggie.

Don’t Be a (Grim) Statistic

Did you know that over five million people per year experience tooth injury playing sports? Many of those injuries cause a tooth to be completely knocked out. Ouch!

Not only is it painful and traumatic, but a knocked out tooth is also time-consuming and expensive to restore.

An Indispensable Part of Your Sports Gear

An inexpensive protective mouthpiece can protect teeth during sporting activities. At Endres Gateway Dentistry, we advise our patients to include mouthguards as a key part of their sports equipment. That’s right. Your mouthguard should be in your duffel along with your football cleats and pads.

Mouthguards work:

Starting in 1962, high school and collegiate football players were required to wear face guards and mouth protectors. Since this requirement, the percentage of orofacial injuries in football has dropped from approximately 50% to one-half of 1%, depending on the study cited.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry counsels parents have children use mouthguards for all organized sports. That means gymnastics, skiing, and lacrosse—not just basketball, football, and wrestling.

Kids who complain about wearing mouthguards are more likely to wear one if it is comfortable and custom-fitted. If you or your child participates in sports, speak with us about custom athletic mouthguards. It may be the most critical dental decision you make this year.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we offer family and cosmetic dentistry, and serve patients in Blue Ash, Loveland, Montgomery OH and the surrounding area. Schedule an appointment with us today.

The Dangers Of Oral Infections

oral infection exam Cincinnati

It happens to everyone from time to time. Your teeth become sensitive to cold drinks. A tooth develops a dull ache. A sore on the gums doesn’t heal up. An injured tooth darkens. A pain develops in your lower sinus area. At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, we see these issues all the time.

They are definitely not situations where the “ignore it and it will go away” mentality is wise. If the pain is the result of a harmful infection, there are grave consequences of postponing treatment. Oral bacterial infections can destroy teeth, gums and jawbone and even lead to life-threatening sepsis. In fact, prior to the 19th century, tooth decay-related infection was a leading cause of death.

An oral infection doesn’t always cause pain. Bad breath, fever, swelling in the gums, glands or jaw, or a strange taste in the mouth can indicate the presence of an infection.

If an infection is caught and treated early, there may be no additional problems. However, usually the infection is the result of a dental trouble that needs to be treated. If the infection is caused by tooth decay, the decay will have to be removed and the tooth filled. If the decay has penetrated to the pulp of the tooth, a root canal may be necessary.

The infection may be the result of a pocket of undrained pus called an abscess. Pus is a by-product of the immune system’s efforts to fight infection and consists of dead white blood cells.

Mouth sores have various causes including an infection or virus. White patches in the mouth can indicate thrush (an oral yeast infection). All of these conditions can be treated – but you need to see your dentist.

If you have any signs of oral infection, or haven’t had a dental exam in the past year, please give us a call at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry, and serve the Blue Ash, Montgomery, and surroundings areas.

Healthy Living Starts With A Smile

general dentistry Cincinnati

Here’s a question for you, from the team at Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati: What comes to mind when you hear the term “healthy living?” A dinner plate with a grilled chicken breast and steamed vegetables? The sound of your feet rhythmically hitting the ground on your favorite jogging trail? A cholesterol test indicating that your arteries are in great shape?

If you pictured a white, healthy smile or a dental X-ray showing no dental caries, we salute you. We want everyone with a smile (that includes you!) to include dental health in your definition of “healthy living.”

When done properly and consistently, brushing and flossing are an essential component of everyday dental hygiene. Brushing should be done at least twice a day. We recommend a soft-bristled toothbrush to guard your gums. Brush your teeth in small, circular motions for 2-3 minutes and be certain you reach all the surfaces.

Flossing should be done once a day and is required for reaching the areas where a toothbrush cannot. A wide variety of floss can be found at Cincinnati stores, so experiment until find one you like.

At Endres Gateway Dentistry in Cincinnati, the dental health of each and every patient is our top priority. Services include family and cosmetic dentistry. We also serve the Loveland and Blue Ash areas. Schedule your next appointment today.
