What Type of Toothbrush and Toothpaste Should I Use?

Toothbrush | What Kind Of Toothpaste Should I Use

Although this sounds like a very basic question, it is something we hear a lot. Surprisingly, the dental care aisle at your regular supermarket can be an overwhelming place.  The amount of choices in various products can be paralyzing, leaving you with an uncertainty to what actually is the best choice for you and your dental health.  There are almost unlimited options for everything from toothpastes and mouthwashes to cleaning products like toothbrushes and interproximal cleaners. Amazingly enough, they are all “dentist recommended’.  So how do you weed through the noise? We can help.

Resolutions for the New Year | Dental Solutions | Jonesboro, AR

It’s that time of year again. The holidays flew by and January 1st is staring us squarely in the face. If you are anything like me, you may have just over indulged by eating your 3rd full sit-down meal in two days and now, you're feeling a pressing desire to right the ship.

Enter the New Year’s resolutions.

The turn of the calendar offers a fresh slate and with that blank canvas comes new aspirations. For some, it is as easy as getting back on track with a diet or exercise program. For others, it may be the opportunity to refine and take something to the next level, like business or a ...

Tobacco and Oral Health

Jonesboro AR | Tobacco Use & Oral Health

It’s hard to believe that there was a time when we didn’t know the troubling health effects of tobacco use. In fact, we continue to learn more about the problems smoking and other tobacco use causes in the human body every day.

One area of the body heavily affected by tobacco use is the mouth. This isn’t surprising since the mouth is the channel by which tobacco is introduced to the body, whether you smoke cigarettes or cigars or you use smokeless tobacco.

If you use tobacco, it’s important to let your Jonesboro, AR dentist, either Dr. Lauren Harmon or Dr. Brett Burris, know. We’ll keep a close eye out to watch ...

My baby stole my calcium, right?

Mom & Young Daughter | Mothers Getting Cavities After Pregnancy
Every once in a while I have a patient tell me, “Doc, I never had any cavities until I got pregnant, then I started have all these problems.  I heard that my baby stole the calcium from my teeth.  What can I do now?”
 

Let’s Get to the Bottom of it.

 
First off I have good news, your baby CANNOT steal the calcium from your teeth.  The stuff your teeth are made out of(calcium, phosphates, and fluoride) is hard.  The enamel of teeth is harder than bone.  There’s no way for minerals that hard to break down into microscopic pieces travel through the blood stream and get built into baby.  
 

Why do New Mothers Get More Cavities?

Let's talk about sugar and your teeth

Sugar & Your Oral Health | Jonesboro AR

It’s pretty much common knowledge that sugar causes cavities.  We’re all told this fact as we grow up.  If you eat too much candy and don’t brush your teeth, you get cavities.

Well, if that was the total truth to the situation, we would simply throw the Twizzlers, Snickers bars, and other junk food in the trash and be well on our way to zero decay.  I can tell you right now that this just isn’t working out.  We are VERY busy cleaning up decay from many people that just aren’t huge junk food eaters.

Let’s shed some light on the subject:

We all have a TON ...
