Repair and Restore Damaged Teeth with Dental Bonding Norwood Loves

October 8, 2015

Woman with beautiful smile thanks to dental bonding Norwood lovesIf you’ve ever owned a brand new car, you probably remember the first scratch or chip in the paint, but what about the 5th or the 10th? Most people stop paying attention to minor flaws after the first few, but overtime, even tiny scrapes and chips add up and the car looks worn and old. The same thing happens to teeth as we age. Tiny chips and stains seem to multiply leaving teeth looking worn and faded. You can trade in your old car for a brand new model, but it’s more difficult to trade in your worn teeth. At Central Dental Associates, we work closely with patients to prevent even minor damage keeping teeth looking and feeling beautiful for life. For those who haven’t been as careful with their smiles through the years, cosmetic bonding may just be your smile’s reset button. At Central Dental Associates, our Norwood, MA dental team helps patients renew their smiles with one visit, no prep cosmetic dental bonding.

Holiday Dental Care Advice

November 25, 2014

170083078The approaching holiday season can be a double dose of danger for your dental care. While most people tend to eat more sugary foods and drink more alcohol, they also get so busy with holiday preparations that they forget to keep up with their normal oral hygiene routine. You can protect your teeth and make dental care a priority this season by contacting Central Dental Associates today for an appointment. The experienced dentists of Central Dental Associates proudly serve all of Norwood, MA, Walpole, Westwood, Medfield, Dedham  and nearby communities.

Holiday Dental Care Tips

  • Desserts– Drink plenty of water after eating anything sugary. This will help wash away the bacteria.
  • Sticky Treats– Avoid chewy candies and dried fruits such as cranberries. These sticky particles will linger on your teeth and are hard to remove, which increases the risk of developing cavities.
  • Alcohol– Try not to swish wine around in your mouth and drink water between glasses of wine to rinse the acid away from your teeth.
  • Sugar Free– Anytime you can substitute a treat for a sugar- free version you are helping protect your teeth. Sugar- Free treats containing the sugar substitute, Xylitol, can actually help reduce plaque buildup. Also try chewing a piece of sugar-free gum after a meal to un-stick food material from your teeth.
  • Got Milk– Dairy can protect your teeth from acids produced by oral bacteria, decreasing the possibility of tooth decay. Just add a glass of milk or a slice of cheese to your holiday candies and treats.
  • Stress- Holiday stress can cause some people to grind or clench their teeth while sleeping (bruxism). A dentist can provide you with a custom night guard to prevent damage from bruxism.

The Importance of Flossing

May 20, 2013

While we all know it’s important to floss, it doesn’t mean we’re all actually doing it. Today, the staff at Central Dental Associates wants to teach you about flossing and how important it is to the health of your smile.

Unfortunately, brushing alone isn’t enough to maintain the health of your smile.  Plaque can accumulate between your teeth and can lead to decay. Also, plaque can harden into tartar and can irritate your gums, inflaming your gums and increasing your risk of gum disease.

Flossing is important because it cleans in between your teeth, thus preventing a buildup of plaque. Brushing just cleans the tops and sides of your teeth. Your smile is not truly clean until you use both techniques together. This article from Colgate discusses proper flossing techniques, and we can demonstrate them for you at your regular checkup. If you’re having trouble flossing, try getting a pre-threaded flossing tool. They can be found in packages at drugstores and are inexpensive.

Flossing needs to be an integral part of your oral health routine to ensure the health of your smile. By taking a little time out of your day to floss, you’ll see a big difference in your smile. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call us. We’re here to help.
