At different ages, we all need specific healthcare. Senior patients have a different set of needs than kids or younger adults. Many patients don’t know that they need to change the way they take care of their smiles as they age, but a good dentist should partner with you to maintain good in-office and at-home dental care routines to ensure you keep a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime. In this post, we’ll discuss the effects of aging on your oral health and how you and your dentist can work together to improve the lifetime health of your smile during dental checkups and by optimizing at-home oral hygiene routines.

One of the questions dentists hear most often from patients is, “What toothpaste should I use?” Most patients don’t love the typical answer, “It’s up to you.” However, the most important factor in picking a toothpaste is choosing a product that you like. Whether it’s the flavor, aroma, or the texture you like, as long as you consistently brush your teeth, your toothpaste should do its job, keeping your teeth clean. In this post, you can learn some basics to better understand what to look for and how to make the right toothpaste choice for your unique smile. You can also be one of the patients who asks their dentist for a recommendation during your next preventive dentistry checkup. Dentists and dental hygienists are always happy to help their patients make these choices.

With summer making its bright, warm way into our lives, the world of laying by the pool and having outdoor barbeques are rapidly approaching. Celebrating summer means being surrounded by your closes friends and family, meaning people are getting their beach bodies ready and their refreshments cold. With all of the people you will encounter, it is very important you are healthy from the inside out, including your smile! Having fresh breath is an awesome way of making a first impression, and if you suffer from bad breath, also known as halitosis, you may find it difficult to be confident in yourself. Dr. Marianna Gaitsgory and the entire Framingham Premier Dental team are able to give you some insight as to what causes halitosis, and some ways of fixing the issue.
One of the causes for halitosis is not brushing and flossing your teeth every day. Food particles get stick between your teeth, and if they are left to sit, it causes bacteria growth. An antibacterial mouthwash is a good way of reducing these bacteria, as well as making sure you brush and floss your teeth every day. Also, smoking and/or chewing tobacco-based products causes bad breath, as well as stains your teeth, irritates your gums, and lessens your ability to taste and enjoy your favorite foods. Some of the signs of halitosis are an unrelenting bad taste in your mouth, severe dry mouth, and ill fitting dental appliances.
A few of the ways you can keep you halitosis under control is by practicing good oral hygiene, including brushing and flossing your teeth daily. Also, seeing your dentist regularly, stopping smoking and using other tobacco-based produces, keeping a record of the kinds of food you eat, and drinking a lot of water are all sure ways you can be sure you have the freshest breath to celebrate the summer!

Do you find yourself having bad breath frequently, and not just after you eat certain foods like garlic or onions? Do you feel like you’re always reaching for the mouth wash or mints but your breath still smells? Your bad breath may be a sign of something else going on in your teeth or mouth.
At Framingham Premier Dental, we can analyze your smile and diagnose the cause of your bad breath. Dr. Gaitsgory will perform a dental check-up and look for the cause of the odor issue.
Many causes of bad breath include the following:
- Bacteria growth on the tongue
- Cavities, especially when food particles are stuck in them
- Gum disease
- Dentures that haven’t been cleaned properly
- Alcohol and tobacco use
Once we discover what is causing your bad breath, we can address the dental issue and help to clear up your breath. Treating the underlying cause is the only way to stop bad breath. Mints and mouth wash will just mask the odor, leaving the real issue unaddressed.
If you have frequent or persistent bad breath, it’s important to give us a call to schedule an appointment, as this is frequently a symptom of other issues with your smile. We want all our patients to have beautiful smiles and are here to help.
At Framingham Premier Dental, Dr. Gaitsgory provides caring dentistry to help you achieve the beautiful smile that you deserve. Our Framingham dental office serves patients from Middlesex County, MA as well as Natick, Sudbury, Ashland, Southborough, Westborough, Marlborough, Hopkinton, Holliston, and Sherborn.
