Persistent Dry Mouth? We can help

The Endres Gateway Dentistry Guide To Dry Mouth

At Endres Gateway Dentistry we are specialists in all aspects of oral health, from family dentistry to orthodontics. We serve patients from all over the Cincinnati area.

Many residents in our community experience dry mouth occasionally. Some develop dry mouth in social situations or when they are under a lot of stress. Sporadic or infrequent dry mouth is usually not a serious problem. But constant dry mouth, known as xerostomia, is not only irritating, it can lead to acute health problems.

Never take your saliva for granted. It plays a vital role in maintaining your health. One of its roles is to help digest your food. The moment food enters your mouth, saliva starts breaking it down so your body can metabolize it. If you don’t produce enough saliva to carry out this task, your body may not be getting all of the nutrients it needs to stay healthy.

Saliva also functions as a disinfectant by cleansing the mouth of leftover food, bacteria, and fungi. This helps prevent tooth decay and infections. Many people don’t realize that some of the foods we eat are very acidic, and that saliva helps counteract those acids in our mouths.

Dr. Eleanor Endres and her staff at Endres Gateway Dentistry have been treating xerostomia since 2007. For starters, Dr. Endres recommends cutting back on caffeine in such drinks as cola, coffee, and tea. Not only do these beverages stain and discolor your teeth, the caffeine can contribute to dry mouth. She also recommend drinking water throughout the day to make sure you are adequately hydrated.

Tobacco and alcohol can also contribute to dry mouth. So can certain medications. IF you have been prescribed a medication and also have dry mouth, consult with your physician to see if dry mouth is a side effect.

Dry mouth is not a natural part of aging, so call Endres Gateway Dentistry today and schedule an appointment if your dry mouth is getting worse as you grow older.

3 Dental Dangers For Toddlers

Kenwood family dentist

Hello new parents! We know that keeping babies and toddlers safe and healthy requires constant effort. You snap them tightly in their car seats, lock your medicine cabinet and guard the stairway with a gate. You take them to your pediatrician for immunizations, check-ups and an occasional prescription for an antibiotic.

Endres Gateway Dentistry wants to remind you about another important component of child wellness: oral health. Sadly, we see too many cases of completely preventable child cavities. You have probably received the following vital advice, but it bears repeating:

  1. Don’t put babies to bed with a bottle!
  2. Don’t allow children to drink juice continually during the day!
  3. Prevent frequent snacking on sugary foods!

Oral health is intrinsically connected to overall physical health and normal development. If your oral hygiene is not up to par, now is the time to shape up and help your young child develop optimal oral health practices that will serve them well throughout their life.

Endres Gateway Dentistry recommends beginning twice-yearly dental visits around age one or when the first tooth breaks through. Our friendly staff helps young patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their exams.

Dr. Eleanor Endres can advise you on thumb sucking, dental sealants, normal child tooth development, braces, athletic tooth protection, fluoride, or any other pediatric dental issue.

In addition to children’s dentistry, Endres Gateway Dentistry offers the full spectrum of cutting-edge restorative and cosmetic dental services such as: cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, and sedation dentistry

If your toddler has not yet visited the dentist, schedule an appointment ASAP by calling us at 513-914-4918.

The Endres Gateway Dentistry Guide To Dental X-Rays

cosmetic dentistry Cincinnati

Don’t know a periapical from a bitewing? Today’s Cincinnati dental blog takes a look at dental x-rays.

Panoramic
If you have ever struggled to stay motionless while an automated camera made one slow pass around your head, then you have had a panoramic x-ray taken of your mouth. These pictures let dentists see everything in one image: the complete upper and lower jaw. During a patient’s first visit to Endres Gateway Dentistry, dentists often take x-rays to evaluate jaw injuries and emerging teeth.

Bitewing
Bitewing x-rays allow Dr. Endres to see what’s going on between teeth–something that is impossible with a visual exam–and evaluate your jawbone.

Periapical
Similar to bite wings, periapical x-rays take a clearer picture of the tooth roots and bone. These are typically used to help diagnose an abscess in the root of a tooth.

Full-Mouth Series
A full-mouth series consists of a combination of periapical and bitewing x-rays. These x-rays provide a comprehensive picture of all the teeth and surrounding bone structure.

Worried about the safety of dental x-rays? We invite you to
meet with our friendly staff. We’ll explain all the precautions we take to reduce radiation exposure and answer any questions you may have.

Are you pregnant? It is essential to let our staff know this before x-rays are taken. X-rays are not necessarily dangerous for pregnant women, but they are often postponed until after delivery as a precaution. If you are pregnant but have a dental issue, call our office right away. We can be reached at 513-914-4918.

We hope you have learned a little bit about dental x-rays, one of our indispensable tools. Check back often for more information at Endres Gateway Dentistry.

Let’s Talk About Your Smile

Let’s Talk About Your Smile I’m Eleanor Endres of Endres Gateway Dentistry. My office is located at 9380 Montgomery Rd, Ste 204 in Cincinnati. One of the best things about being a dentist is interacting with my patients. During initial dental consultations, I listen carefully to my patient’s short and long term dental goals.

I enjoy discussing options and developing effective treatment plans tailored specifically to each person. Some of my patients desire a total smile makeover. I explain in detail the treatments available including teeth whitening, dental veneers, orthodontia, crown restoration, and dental implants.

If a patient is nervous about undergoing treatment, we discuss oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation, sometimes called oral sedation dentistry, is a great option for anxious patients. Dental visits do not have to be painful!

After the treatment has been completed, it is very gratifying for me to see my patient’s reaction to their new smile.

I never get tired of creating dramatic smile transformations for the best patients in Ohio!

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

Cincinnati Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the Cincinnati area, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. Today in the Endres Gateway Dentistry dental blog, we explain 7 ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process

7) Teeth can be shaped to look longer. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

If you are in the Montgomery, Blue Ash, or Kenwood area and are in need of dental care or have cosmetic dentistry questions, please give us a call at 513-914-4918.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Affordable Cosmetic Dentistry

Affordable Cincinnati Cosmetic Dentistry Are you wondering if your Ohio dental insurance covers cosmetic dental procedures? Many dentistry patients assume their dental insurance won’t cover any cosmetic dental procedures. This is probably true for tooth bleaching or first-time dental bonding. Many dental insurance plans cover orthodontia and any treatment needed to repair damage from an injury. Our practice accepts a range of insurance and financing options.

Types of Coverage

  • Dental insurance plan
  • Dental supplemental insurance plans
  • Medical insurance plan
  • Worker’s Compensation plan

Some dental insurance plans cover replacement porcelain veneers in certain circumstances. Check with your carrier for benefit specifics if you need replacement veneers due to deterioration. We can then discuss dental treatment options such as replacement veneers or porcelain crowns. When the work is completed, we may be able to help you submit your dental claim form if your plan requires one.

If you are in need of any kind of dental treatment; from a cleaning to major restorative work, come meet our friendly team, undergo a thorough evaluation and discuss financing options. Even if you do not have dental insurance, let’s talk. Top quality dental treatment is a wise investment and may be more affordable than you think.
