Question: Is periodontal disease contagious?
Question: What kind of tooth brush do you recommend?
For a manual brush: soft, rounded tip and nylon bristle. It should be replaced when the bristles become frayed, or at least every 3 months. Keep your toothbrush to yourself. For an electric toothbrush: We recommend the Philips Sonicare. It’s for many conditions, including braces, bridges, crowns and other dental appliances. It’s great for preventing and even reversing gum disease. Get a model that has a 2 – 3 minute timer
How do I know if I have gum disease and how does it affect me?
You may not know without coming in to see us. In early stages, you’ll develop a bad taste in your mouth, bad breath, and gums that bleed when brushing and flossing. If ignored, it could progress and you could lose your teeth. Gum disease has also been linked with heart and stroke, diabetes, kidney disease, Crohn’s disease, premature deliveries, and pre-eclampsia
What is “minimally invasive dentistry”?
Every day, Dr. Jeff Kim of Dr. Kim’s Ultimate Dental Studio in Port Orange, Florida practices minimally invasive dentistry. But what does that mean, and how does that change your dental experience?
Minimally Invasive Dentistry means treating a dental problem in the most complete fashion without unnecessarily invading the properties of the tooth (or teeth) involved. It is being conscious of how much tooth structure is removed and how it will affect the patient long term.
