5 Important Holiday Habits that Bring Smiles to the Triangle

It is Thanksgiving week and our dental hygienists are spending the holiday season  focused on dental care. Our team in Cary closely examines patient teeth for potential problems. At E. Scott Saltzman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in the Triangle, the goal is to provide all patients with the best preventative care to give everyone a stunning smile. Some habits that patients follow make that goal easier for dental professionals. But many patients never ask what they can do to contribute to their own dental health.

Dental professionals recommend these five important holiday season habits to ensure the best possible experience while at the dentist:

  • Consistent brushing: There are several key facts about teeth brushing that contribute to dental health and great dental visits. Always go to bed with clean teeth. The body produces much less saliva during sleep, so the teeth and gums don’t get washed as well. And although it is tempting to stop brushing an area that bleeds or hurts, failure to brush is likely to make the condition worse.
  • Regular interdental cleaning: Hygienists ask about patients about flossing because it really does help prevent plaque build-up between teeth. Patients should feel free to ask their hygienist about other methods if they can’t build a habit with traditional string floss. Water flossers, rubber tips or rubber tip brushes may be the answer.
  • Appointment preparation: Any patient who is stressed or nervous about a dental visit should inform the hygienist or dentist. Dr. Saltzman and his staff are pros at explaining procedures and helping patients overcome their dental anxiety.
  • Follow Dr. Saltzman’s professional advice: Modern dental care plays an important part in overall health. To prevent cavities and gum disease, it’s important to follow the advice provided by Dr. Saltzman and his staff. If instructions are unclear, patients should always follow up with questions, either during the appointment or afterward.
  • Maintain a teeth cleaning schedule: Appointments are set at specific intervals because tooth decay develops in a predictable pattern. As faithful as most patients are about brushing and flossing, plaque can develop in some hard-to-reach places. Once plaque transforms into calculus (or tartar), it can only be removed with tools available to dental professionals. 

Bring a smile to Dr. Saltzman’s face and to our hygienists by following these suggestions. Call the office today to schedule your next regular cleaning or exam. E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry treats all ages, children through seniors.

To all of our families, friends, neighbors, and patients, Happy Holidays to all!

5 Surprising Facts About Teeth Whitening, from Saltzman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry

Every movie actor and television celebrity we see appears to have bright white teeth. People in the Triangle want to have those same brilliant smiles as well. Cary-based dentist Dr. E. Scott Saltzman includes teeth whitening as an optional cosmetic treatment for any patients who request it. As part of his practice, he and his staff always seek to educate patients about all the facts involving any procedure, including teeth whitening.

Saltzman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry presents five surprising facts about teeth whitening and making the right decision:

  • Color variations: There is a natural variation in tooth color. Race, gender and geographic area during childhood all influence the development of tooth color. When considering a whitening procedure, it’s important to understand that not everyone will be able to achieve the same level of whitening.
  • Personal individual treatment: Each patient is fitted with a custom tray that precisely fits the teeth. These snug-fitting trays hold the gel that gradually lightens teeth to the desired color. Over-the-counter whitening products cannot provide the results of personalized treatment.
  • Time involved: Whitening teeth requires that the trays be worn daily for several hours; often for a few weeks. Once the right shade is achieved, an occasional additional treatment will keep the teeth bright.
  • Age limits: There isn’t an upper age limit for teeth whitening. In fact, because teeth tend to darken with age, older adults will see years of staining disappear through the whitening process.
  • Alternative procedures: Tooth whitening isn’t for everyone. Some people need veneers or crowns to bring back their beautiful smiles. Dr. Saltzman can develop a treatment plan suited to each patient’s unique needs. 

A brilliant smile isn’t just for the movie stars. Call Dr. Saltzman’s office today for an appointment to discuss teeth whitening. The friendly and professional staff at E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry will be happy to get you started on that dazzling smile. No one knows when a star is born!

Happy Halloween to all in the Triangle!

5 Teeth “Super Foods” that Promote Dental Health Excellence in the Triangle

Teeth and gums need more than brushing and flossing. As with overall health, teeth benefit from the right nutrients. Triangle residents can boost their dental health by adding some interesting and unusual foods to their diet.  Dr. E. Scott Saltzman always encourages his patients to do everything they can to prevent cavities and consuming the right foods is part of that regular care. Certain teeth “super foods”  can provide valuable dental benefits because of their ability to inhibit the growth of bacteria that can lead to cavities and gum disease.

The following five super foods might not be the first ones that come to mind when thinking about dental health, but they are worth the try!

  • Raw onions: Raw onions were shown in a Korean study to kill bacteria that lead to cavities and gum disease. Add a slice of raw onion to that lunchtime sandwich, just be sure to have some sugarless gum around for fresher breath. Better yet, brush after every meal.
  • Cranberries: As fall begins, grocery stores start to stock these tart little berries. Already known for preventing bladder infections, cranberries and their juice inhibit development of plaque, the hard deposit that needs to be scraped off at each dental cleaning.
  • Cinnamon: The natural oil that gives cinnamon its characteristic flavor also kills oral bacteria. One study found that this oil reduced mouth bacteria by more than 50 percent and also eliminated much of the bacteria that causes bad breath.  
  • Green tea: As with the foods listed above, green tea also kills oral bacteria. According to one study, green tea not only killed bacteria but also served as an oral deodorant, reducing bad breath. There also is some evidence that drinking green tea reduces the incidence of mouth cancer.
  • Shiitake mushrooms: Mushrooms also have antibacterial properties. Researchers in India found that mushrooms contain chemicals that are powerful aids in preventing cavities and gum disease. And like green tea, they also have the ability to prevent cancer. 

Regular dental care is also a key element of preventing cavities. Call the office of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to make an appointment for a complete dental exam.

5 Classic Strategies to Help Children with Good Dental Habits

The beginning of a new school year means many new experiences for lots of Triangle students. This busy time of year can be the perfect moment to help youngsters develop lifelong habits of good dental health. Because school imposes a predictable structure to the day, this can make it easier to help children remember daily dental care. Dr. E. Scott Saltzman DMD, can help children learn about the proper dental care and the importance of regular professional cleanings. Although young children may not understand the importance of dental health, parents can develop strategies that encourage good habits.

The office of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry offers these five suggestions for teaching about dental care:

  • Visit Dr. Saltzman: To alleviate concerns about visiting the dentist, a child could accompany a parent to a cleaning and exam. The environment will seem less frightening if the child is already familiar with the surroundings, sounds and dental tools.
  • Start young: It’s important for children to keep their primary teeth healthy. Therefore, a child is almost never too young to begin visiting the dentist for regular check-ups.
  • Make it fun: Child-sized toothbrushes are made in fun colors and designs; some have images of favorite cartoon characters or animals. Parents can use a small dental mirror to show children their own teeth.
  • Plan for snacks: Sweetened drinks and sugary snacks play havoc with dental health. Pack lunches and snacks for school that include fresh fruits, raw vegetables, and whole grains.
  • Set the example: Parents can make it a routine to brush and floss after breakfast and dinner with their children. Youngsters want to emulate their parents and this example will reinforce the idea that dental care is a daily habit. 

Finding the right dentist is often not easy. Giving Dr. Saltzman a call starts the process. We treat all family members, so call our office today. E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry makes family dental care a priority and is currently accepting new patients.

5 Important Dental Conditions the Triangle Should Never Ignore

Most Triangle residents understand that routine dental visits are a vital part of our daily health. Yet we might not be so clear about priority when a tooth or gum problem needs immediate attention. Fortunately for those in the Cary area, Dr. E. Scott Saltzman handles a wide range of dental conditions that require more than routine cleanings. As a family dentist, Dr. Saltzman (Pictured Right) treats all ages, including children. Whether it is a broken tooth, bleeding gums or a painful toothache, Triangle residents trust Dr. Saltzman and his staff to handle problems promptly and professionally in every situation. A great smile begins with healthy teeth and gums. E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is experienced in handling the full range of dental problems.

The following five important concerns need attention before any regular exam and cleaning:

  • Toothache: It isn’t normal to experience pain in a tooth. Pain often a signal that the tooth is infected or abscessed, a filling has been lost or the tooth has been broken. All of these require quick attention from Dr. Saltzman because the pain will not go away without treatment.
  • Bleeding gums: Patients who notice blood while brushing their teeth need to call our office as soon as possible. This is often a sign that plaque under the gum line is attacking soft tissue. Although flossing, using a softer toothbrush and rinsing with salt water can help, only a dental professional can remove plaque below the gum line. The damage will continue to worsen if not treated.
  • Puffy, red gums: As with bleeding gums, swollen or red gums can indicate the early signs of periodontal disease. Patients may notice red, puffy gums without any bleeding. If more careful attention to brushing, flossing and rinsing does not relieve the swelling, it’s probably time to contact a dentist for a check-up rather than waiting for a routine cleaning.
  • Tooth breakage: Sometimes teeth get broken or knocked out, especially in youngsters and active teenagers. Depending on the severity of the damage, there may be considerable pain and loss of function. Dr. Saltzman can assist with pain relief and also begin the restoration process so the patient can more quickly regain function and normal appearance.
  • Loss of crowns or fillings: When a crown or filling comes off, it’s important to get it repaired as soon as possible. Crowns and fillings help with the keep teeth healthy and also protect the sensitive parts of the tooth underneath.

Call our office today with any of these serious dental conditions. We welcome new patients. Making an appointment with  E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to start receiving the Triangle’s best dental care.

4 Key Habits to Keep Teeth and Gums Healthy in the Triangle

Triangle residents who observe four very important, yet basic habits of dental care are less likely to have problems with their teeth and gums. Dr. E. Scott Saltzman and his staff instruct patients in what they can do to keep their smiles healthy and bright. It really isn’t very difficult to stay on top of dental health. Patients, hygienists and Dr. Saltzman all work together to prevent disease and cavities.

  1. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry explains four key habits that give patients the best chance at maintaining healthy teeth:
  • Healthy Diet: What goes into the human body plays a huge role in dental health. Most people know that sugary snacks and drinks are bad for teeth because the sugar contributes to decay. It is important to note that there also are foods and beverages that support strong teeth. Dairy products, carrots, celery, leafy greens, and almonds provide vitamins that teeth need. Eating an apple actually can help clean teeth between brushings. Plain water helps wash away food residue from teeth.
  • Daily “smile” maintenance: It probably can’t be repeated often enough: brush and floss. Teeth should be brushed a minimum of twice a day because residue that remains on teeth for longer than 24 hours starts to harden and becomes more difficult to remove. Because a toothbrush cannot reach between teeth, flossing, with either dental floss or a water flosser, is another daily habit that prevents decay and gum disease.
  • Regular professional cleanings from Dr. Saltzman: Even with daily flossing and brushing, it’s difficult to prevent all instances of plaque and calculus build-up on the teeth. Only the professional equipment used by dentists and hygienists is capable of removing this hard substance. It’s important to keep to a regular cleaning schedule as determined by Dr. Saltzman. Some patients may need more frequent cleanings than others. 
  • Prompt corrective action: Delaying dental treatment is a bad idea. Tooth pain and discomfort generally don’t resolve themselves. A small cavity is much easier to fill than a larger one. Quick action can prevent tooth loss and gum disease.

Practice these four key habits to keep teeth and gums healthy for years. If it’s time for a cleaning or a complete dental exam, call the office of  E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to make an appointment. He is accepting new patients and treats all ages. The office is convenient from anywhere in the Triangle.

5 Dental Concerns About Wisdom Teeth in the Triangle

Between the ages of 17 and 25, many people get a third set of molars. Called “wisdom teeth,” these teeth are supposed to emerge just in back of the other molars. But that doesn’t always happen. An impacted tooth is one that fails to erupt through the gums.  Dr. E. Scott Saltzman sees the problems that impacted wisdom teeth create for young adults in the Triangle. Often this happens because the jaw is too small to fit those four extra teeth. Dental x-rays will reveal whether wisdom teeth will be a problem as these patients enter adulthood.

  1. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry details five issues related to wisdom teeth:
  • Decay: Wisdom teeth that only partially erupt through the gums are difficult to clean and more at risk for decay. It’s important to practice good dental hygiene at home and keep regular cleaning appointments to prevent decay.
  • Damage to nearby teeth: Wisdom teeth often grow at odd angles, pushing into adjacent molars and causing crowding and misalignment. Infection can result. Orthodontic treatment may be required to straighten the affected teeth.
  • Gum disease risk: Any part of the mouth that is hard to keep clean is a breeding ground for bacteria that causes gum disease. With wisdom teeth sitting at the very back of the mouth, they are difficult to reach. A water flosser will help keep them clean.
  • Removal: Oral surgeons can remove impacted wisdom teeth before they begin growing at odd angles and affecting other teeth. Patients concerned about impacted wisdom teeth should consult with Dr. Saltzman about the advisability of having them removed.
  • Infection symptoms: Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected. Signs of such an infection include red or swollen gums, jaw pain, swelling around the jaw and difficulty opening the mouth. A dental professional should be consulted promptly if these symptoms are present.

Older teens and young adults should ask Dr. Saltzman about whether their wisdom teeth are likely to cause problems as they age. If you are overdue for a regular cleaning or complete exam, call the office of  E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to make an appointment.

3 Healthy Reasons to Brighten Smiles in the Triangle

A bright smile just makes everyone feel better. In the Triangle, there is no better place to transform the appearance of a smile than at E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Patients who avoided smiling and laughing because of damaged or discolored teeth now beam with confidence after visiting our office.

Dr. Saltzman provides the essential dentistry skill, but also offers several ways to give patients brighter and healthy-looking smiles. More and more patients are taking advantage of cosmetic dentistry to improve both the look and function of their teeth. In surveys of patients, teeth whitening was the most frequently requested procedure.

Dr. Saltzman offers three very healthy reasons to improve the appearance of teeth:  

  • Simplicity: Many patients need to whiten stained or discolored teeth. The process involves wearing a customized tray filled with whitening solution each night until the desired color is achieved. Some people have naturally darker teeth while others experience staining from beverages and food. Whitening products can irritate gums and teeth, so it’s important to have the custom tray provided by Dr. Saltzman.
  • Appearance: It is a human trait; everyone wants to look good in photos. The advent of smartphone cameras makes everyone a photographer. Social media means there are unlimited opportunities to be seen. A great smile improves every image, from school and family reunions to driver’s license pictures.
  • Functionality: Sometimes a nice smile is hampered by broken or damaged teeth. Dr. Saltzman provides a range of treatments for these conditions, including veneers, crowns and implants. Broken teeth affect how people bite and chew. Restoring teeth to their proper shape improves the patient’s daily life and benefits the smile.

Please do not delay brightening the most personal message anyone has to offer, the human smile. Make an appointment with E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to find out how easy it is to enhance the appearance and functionality of teeth.

5 Ways the Human Body Benefits from Dental Health

Great dental health is about more than clean teeth and avoiding cavities. The human body actually benefits in many ways when people are conscientious about taking care of their teeth and gums. Dr. E. Scott Saltzman sees the rewards every day here in the Triangle when patients follow treatment plans and commit to regular cleanings and daily home care. E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry wants to share with patients the great advantages of good dental health.

Here are five ways that good dental hygiene contributes to well-being and overall good health:

  • Heart health: Researchers are exploring whether bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause other problems. In particular, one specific bacteria develops a surface molecule that can cause blood-clotting, raising the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • Respiratory health: Respiratory problems may be linked to poor dental hygiene. One study showed that gum disease could increase the risk of pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Healthy babies: Pregnant women with untreated gum disease are more likely to give birth prematurely or to low-birth weight babies. Regular professional cleanings and good home care contribute to healthy babies.
  • Fresh breath: No one wants to have bad breath. Keeping the mouth and gums clean helps prevent bacteria from collecting and creating a foul mouth odor.
  • Weight control: It might seem like a small thing, but brushing after every meal makes snacking less appealing. That feeling of a fresh, clean mouth is an encouragement to stay away from sticky sweet snacks. Some weight loss programs suggest brushing right after eating as a disincentive to snacking.

Regular professional cleanings and exams are necessary to keep teeth and gums at optimal health. Call the office of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry to schedule an appointment. Dr. Saltzman treats all ages and welcomes new patients.
