Good Eats!

“What can I have to eat and drink after my dental treatment?”

We here at Gulfside Dental hear this question. A LOT! So many patients are worried that after they have any procedure done, whether it be fillings, extractions, or crowns, they won’t be able to eat any “real food” because they’ll be sore. This definitely isn’t true!

Granted, if you have any kind of extraction done, you surely aren’t supposed to eat any hard foods, or consume anything with a straw. You’ll also want to make sure the food isn’t too hot as well. However, there is still “real food” you can eat!

If your mouth or teeth are sore, you can still enjoy delicious foods, like the ones listed above. Soft foods such as pudding and jello are a given. Remember, though, you can still get your nutrition with options such as yogurt, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, and steamed veggies!

Don’t worry about having to skip any meals, or miss out on good eats just because you went to Gulfside Dental and had some treatment done! Next time you have any work done, keep these tasty foods in mind.

If you need any kind of dental work done, give Gulfside Dental in Galveston a call! We are always accepting new patients, and often have same-day availability!

YOU-nique

bf75576f98c0a9cfb2310b69a5b7899fEver watched one of those sci-fi or forensic tv shows where the investigating team are unable to identify a person by how they look? They try all different kinds of tests, but then they are FINALLY able to identify the person by their teeth. That’s not just made up for good television, friends. Teeth can tell a great deal about a person. Just like fingerprints, each person’s teeth are entirely different. So much can be told about you just by taking a look into your mouth. Just like rings in a tree stump can give an estimated age of a tree, your teeth can determine your age. Other factors can show through your teeth too! Eating habits and lifestyle patterns can be identified through your teeth structure and their make-up.

If you were to look at 100 people’s x-rays of their teeth, it wouldn’t take you long to realize that every x-ray is unique to the person, and unlike anyone else’s. YOU are a one-of-a-kind. So are your teeth! Gulfside Dental appreciates what makes you… YOU. And we want you to see the potential in your smile! No one else has one quite like yours.

If you haven’t already, or it’s been a while, give Gulfside Dental a call to schedule your next visit with us!

Floss Like a Boss

FullSizeRender (2)Americans are in a sticky situation when it comes to their dental health. Studies have shown that a whopping average between 70-80% of Americans do not floss their teeth regularly. Why though? Most patients who come into Gulfside Dental don’t truly realize the importance of flossing on a daily basis. They think that brushing alone will reach all surfaces of their teeth and keep them clean, but this simply isn’t true.

Aside from removing pesky popcorn kernels and left-over steak, flossing between all of your teeth removes any plaque, acid and other germs left behind. This can be done with either traditional floss or with a water pik. Without being too aggressive, traditional floss glides between teeth and essentially scrubs the in-between and hard-to-reach places that your tooth-brush does not and cannot reach. A water pik basically does the same trick, except it uses a flush of water to get the job done for those who may not be able to use traditional floss (i.e. those who have a dental bridge, etc.).

Our seasoned doctors here at Gulfside Dental recommend all patients floss everyday, twice a day, with regular brushing. This will ensure that any excess bacteria, acid, or left-on food will be removed, thus helping to prevent any further cavities.

If you or anyone you know is in need of any kind of dental work or assistance, please do not hesitate to call any of our local Gulfside Dental offices. Our staff will be more than happy to get you set up for your next visit!
