5 Simple Tips for Selecting a New Toothbrush

The people of the world have been cleaning their teeth for centuries. Over the centuries, we have used sticks with frayed ends, rough fabric, or crude brushes made from animal hair. In 2021, we are lucky to have a wide array of toothbrushes to select, but that variety also can also be confusing. In the Triangle, Dr. E. Scott Saltzman wants to reduce some of that confusion by presenting an easy guide to selecting a new brush.

Here are five simple tips to remember when buying a new toothbrush:

  • Replace every 3 months: Even though patients leave Dr. Saltzman’s office with a new brush after each cleaning, that brush isn’t intended to last for six months. When bristles become frayed or worn, usually after about three months, it’s time to replace the brush.
  • Soft bristles: Saltzman recommends softer bristles. Harder bristles don’t clean any better and can irritate gums and even damage enamel when paired with an abrasive toothpaste.
  • Smaller size: The perfect toothbrush should clean just one or two teeth at a time. It should easily reach all tooth surfaces. It doesn’t matter whether the brush head is rectangular, oval, or tapered.
  • Comfortable to use: A toothbrush needs to feel comfortable is the mouth and be easily maneuvered to reach all tooth surfaces. Children benefit from small brush heads and larger handles.
  • Ask advice: Still, confused about which brush to choose? Ask Dr. Saltzman at the next appointment. His years of professional experience with all ages have given him abundant insight into how best to help his clients take great care of their teeth. 

Looking for a new dentist in the Triangle? E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry are currently accepting new patients. Call today to schedule a convenient time for an exam.

5 Fantastic Habits for Kids that Build Strong Teeth

New parents watch eagerly for their baby’s first tooth to make its appearance. Although baby teeth will eventually be replaced by permanent adult teeth, good habits children form when taking care of baby teeth create a strong foundation for lifelong dental health. In the Triangle, Dr. E. Scott Saltzman treats patients of all ages, from young children to seniors. His experience has shown him how beneficial it is for parents to help their children learn early about proper home care for teeth and gums.

Here are five fantastic dental care habits that Dr. Saltzman recommends parents foster in their children:

  • Start early: Tooth brushing isn’t just for permanent teeth. A baby’s gums should be wiped gently after each feeding with a soft wet gauze or cloth. This practice accustoms the child to daily tooth care. When baby teeth first erupt, parents need to use a soft toothbrush to gently clean the teeth twice a day.
  • No food at bedtime: Babies should finish their bottle before falling asleep, even if it is milk, formula or fruit juice. These liquids bathe the teeth with substances that feed decay-causing bacteria. Older children should not eat or drink anything but water after brushing their teeth before bed.
  • Independent brushing: At around age six, children can begin brushing their own teeth. Parents need to monitor their children to make sure they brush all tooth surfaces and that they spend at least two minutes on the task. Children should learn to spit out toothpaste, not swallow it.
  • Build morning and bedtime routines: Just as adults wouldn’t dream of leaving the house in the morning or going to bed without brushing their teeth, children can develop these same habits early. Parents can build in these routines as part of getting ready each day and as a nightly ritual.
  • Regular dental visits: Saltzman and his staff are experienced at treating the youngest dental patients. Early regular checkups allow children to build trust in dental professionals, preventing the fear that keeps many people away from the dental office. 

Is your child ready for their first dental visit? Call our office today to schedule an appointment at E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. We love seeing children and Dr. Saltzman will make sure that the first dental visit is stress-free for everyone involved.

5 Important Reasons to Switch to an Electric Toothbrush

Some Triangle residents probably started the New Year using an unusual Christmas gift: an electric toothbrush. It took them only a few brushings to discover what many dental professionals already know; the electric toothbrush is a great way to improve dental health.  Dr. E. Scott Saltzman is eager to see the improvement in teeth and gums that these devices provide his patients. Some patients always will prefer a manual brush, but for those considering investing in an electric toothbrush, Dr. Saltzman has compiled a list of their top benefits.

Consider these five benefits when deciding whether to buy an electric toothbrush:

  • Two-minute rule: An electric toothbrush does an effective job in just two minutes. Some electric toothbrushes alert the user when they have reached two minutes, ensuring they have brushed long enough. Dr. Saltzman advises patients to devote a half-minute to each quadrant of the mouth for complete cleaning.
  • More effective cleaning: Rotating heads on electric brushes reach areas that manual brushes cannot, including between the teeth. The brush’s motion and pressure give equal cleaning to all tooth surfaces, something that is difficult to accomplish with a manual brush. A recently published study determined electric toothbrush use results in healthier gums and less tooth decay compared to manual brushing.
  • Good for the gums: Instructions with electric toothbrushes tell the user to angle the brush at 45 degrees to tooth and gum. At this angle, the brush cleans the teeth and the gum line, which helps prevent gum disease.
  • Easy to use: A family can share one electric base. Each person has their own brush head, which should be replaced every three months, just as with a manual toothbrush. The brush’s action does the work. Children and the elderly find the large handle easier to hold and move than a manual brush.
  • Controls bad breath: Oral bacteria is one of the causes of bad breath. Effective brushing removes the food that gets lodged between teeth and gums. Some electric brushes have sensitive settings that can be used for cleaning the tongue and roof of the mouth, further adding to a clean, fresh mouth.

 Call our friendly staff today to schedule an appointment. 919 380 9311.

3 Common Dental Conditions Creating Holiday Headaches

One very famous Christmas song has lyrics that include the line: “It’s the hap-happiest time of the year.” And although that is mostly true, some people find Christmas creates unwanted stress and headaches that go along with that stress. Add the stress of COVID-19, and this is a season like no other in our lifetime.

Dr. E. Scott Saltzman wants his patients in the Triangle to know that sometimes headaches are the result of treatable dental issues. With Christmas and New Year’s right around the corner, Dr. Saltzman, and his staff at E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry want all their patients to have a stress- and pain-free “happiest time of the year.”

Saltzman Dentistry offers three common dental conditions that might cause headaches:

  • Teeth grinding: The official name for teeth grinding is bruxism. People generally aren’t aware they are grinding their teeth because it happens during sleep. This involuntary action, possibly triggered by stress, damages teeth, and often causes jaw, neck, or head pain. When Dr. Saltzman sees evidence of teeth grinding, he helps his patients find the right treatment to alleviate the problem.
  • Misaligned bite: Called malocclusion, bite misalignment is a condition in which teeth don’t meet properly. Malocclusion makes the jaw work harder to bite and chew, causing stress and headaches. Treatment for this dental condition may include retainers, metal braces, clear aligners or oral surgery. Any patient experiencing regular headaches should ask Dr. Saltzman if their teeth could be the source of their pain.
  • Tooth decay: Although it seems obvious that a cavity will make a tooth hurt, the pain can be transferred elsewhere, sometimes as a painful migraine. A migraine that seems to be stress-related may instead be a result of tooth decay or gum disease. Patients are often pleasantly surprised when their headaches stop after receiving dental treatment for oral health issues. 

Don’t let the holidays cause you stress. Call the office of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today if there is a suspicion of dental problems and recurring headaches. Dr. Saltzman welcomes new patients and treats all ages, including children.

4 Surprising Tips to Brighten Smiles this Thanksgiving


Although everyone’s smile is currently hidden behind a mask this holiday season, many dental patients are using this time to improve their dental health. Dr. E. Scott Saltzman, one of the Triangle’s most popular dentists, encourages his patients to set new routines and break bad habits during Thanksgiving and Christmas. The opportunity to work from home and reduce social events can often improve dental health in some surprising ways.

Dr. Saltzman and his staff at E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry compiled these four tips for their patients:

  • Give up energy drinks: Tooth enamel is the body’s hardest substance. Yet even tooth enamel cannot withstand being washed with sports and energy drinks. Although they might appear less damaging than sugary sodas, their acidity erodes tooth enamel. Saliva in a healthy mouth has a neutral pH, 6.8 or 7. The most popular sports drinks and energy drinks are all highly acidic with pH levels between 1.5 and 3.3. Water still is the best drink for dental health.
  • Encourage fresh breath: One unpleasant surprise of wearing a mask for many people has been the smell of their own breath. Bad breath can be caused by many things, including poor brushing habits, gum disease, underlying medical conditions, cigarette smoking, chewing tobacco, low-carb diets, drinking coffee, eating garlic, and even drinking alcohol. Keeping teeth and gums clean by frequent brushing and flossing and use of a mouthwash can go a long way to preventing bad breath. Consider altering your diet to discover if that is the source of bad breath.
  • Keep regular dental appointments: Saltzman’s office has implemented routine Covid-19 prevention measures to keep patients and staff safe. There is no reason to postpone regular visits because of the virus outbreak. In fact, remote work may allow patients the flexibility to finally schedule delayed treatments that require extra time or more frequent visits.
  • Use this pandemic to build new habits: Since so much of daily life has been altered by Covid-19, smart patients will use this time to create new habits. Working from home makes it easier to brush teeth after every meal. Use online shopping options to make sure supplies such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss come directly to the house. Also, stock the pantry and refrigerator with healthy snacks that also are good for teeth: carrots, apples, green vegetables, dairy products, and nuts. 

Want more tips for improving dental health during the Covid-19 restrictions? Set up an appointment with E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. He is accepting new patients and enjoys educating patients about the best ways to keep their smiles bright and healthy.

5 Important Characteristics of a Great Dental Practice

Happy Halloween everyone! 

Sometimes it can be more difficult to choose a new dentist than a new doctor. When asked about what patients want in a dentist, they mention multiple factors, not just whether the dentist accepts their insurance. Unfortunately, many people fear going to the dentist, so finding someone they trust ranks very high on their list of requirements. With his many years of experience, Dr. E. Scott Saltzman has built a practice that builds on key factors valued by patients. Many Triangle residents already know they can trust Dr. Saltzman and his staff to meet their various dental needs.

Saltzman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Cary NC, offers five important characteristics to consider when selecting a new dentist:

  • Consider the entire team: Modern dental care is the product of a team of professionals. In this case, Dr. Saltzman is the team leader, but assistants, hygienists and administrative staff all play a role in the patient experience. In the best practices, every team member has a crucial role to play.
  • Good listening skills: Great dentists and their staff members strive to actively listen to their patients’ concerns. A fearful patient finds that a dentist who listens carefully can provide strategies and treatments to reduce the fear. For example, Dr. Saltzman never rushes patients to schedule treatments when they are not ready; he listens.
  • Willing to educate: Educating patients is critical for a successful dentist-patient relationship. Home dental care is crucial to maintaining teeth and gums between visits. Learning better brushing and flossing habits can make a huge improvement in dental health. Doctor Saltzman and his team are experts at showing patients of all ages how to take great care of their teeth.
  • Respect: Saltzman stays on schedule and shows respect for a patient’s time and schedule. Plus, in Cary, our great administrative staff will let patients know in advance how long they should allow for an appointment.
  • Cares about patients: Our team takes the time to get to know their patients. We want to establish long-term relationships and see our patients through many years of care. Over time, changes in medical conditions can affect both teeth and gums. We review each patient’s history at each visit to assess what has changed, in order to provide the optimal level of care. 

Are you new to North Carolina and the Triangle region? Find out what others have discovered about the superb dental care at E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Call us today to set up an appointment. We treat all ages and currently we are accepting new patients.

4 Essential Recommendations from Doctor Saltzman in Cary NC


Our dental hygienists at our office, know more about their patients’ teeth-cleaning habits than most people suspect. They can tell who is flossing regularly and if brushing habits are working. In the Triangle office of Dr. E. Scott Saltzman, our hygienists are often the ones who remind patients about the best way to care for their teeth. Dr. Saltzman’s staff takes seriously the job of educating patients about the proper and best way to care for teeth and gum. They are always happy to answer patients’ questions.

Here are four essential recommendations that our hygienists at Saltzman Family and Cosmetic Dentistry want all of our patients to know:

  • Brush all tooth surfaces: The most visible part of any smile are the upper front teeth. Those are the ones featured in photographs and the ones everyone wants them pearly white. Yet, every part of a tooth — front, back and the chewing surfaces —needs “toothbrush time” at least twice a day. It’s not unknown for some patients to brush only the outside surfaces. Every tooth needs an all-around cleaning experience.
  • Water flossers really work: Struggling to maneuver string floss between teeth makes some people give up on flossing. A better alternative is to invest in a water flosser. It not only can often do a better job at cleaning between teeth and around the gum line, it can stimulate better tone in the gums. This is especially important for people with gum disease. The water flosser can often reduce the “pockets” between gum and tooth where bacteria likes to hide.
  • Keep up the maintenance: Our hygienists aren’t nagging when they remind people about regular brushing and flossing. They are explaining. The basics of daily maintenance keep teeth in tip-top condition. Dental health is compromised when patients rely only on periodic professional cleanings without doing regular at-home care. It’s a little like maintaining a car; deferred maintenance can mean bigger problems and more expenses in the future.  
  • Brush teeth before the appointment: It is important to brush and floss before an appointment. If time is short, just request to use the office’s restroom and a complimentary brush. No one will mind; in fact, the out team will be thankful for the extra effort. 

Is it time for your dental cleaning? Take a few minutes and call the E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to set up a convenient appointment time. We are accepting new patients and treats all ages, so families can schedule both children and parents at the same time.

4 Important Reasons for Crown Replacement in the Triangle

Dental crowns are very important, and they serve many functions. They provide improved biting and chewing, especially for patients with damaged teeth. If they are in the front, they give our patients back their dazzling smiles. Crowns also protect the natural tooth underneath, generally keeping it cavity-free. Because crowns last for many years, patients may wonder why they have to be replaced at all.

Dr. E. Scott Saltzman, the Triangle’s premier cosmetic dentist, can help patients understand what is going on beneath the crown and how that affects dental disease.

Here are four important reasons for crowns and crown replacement:  

  • Aesthetics: Old crowns may no longer match the color of natural teeth. Older crowns may appear opaque, lacking the translucence of natural teeth. Modern crowns are fashioned from a more durable porcelain that better match the look of natural teeth.
  • Decay: Although crown material will not decay, the natural tooth underneath is still vulnerable. This is a risk if the cement that bonds the crown to the natural tooth starts to wear away. Bacteria will collect under the crown, where the dentist cannot see it on a regular exam.
  • Damage: Dental crowns are intended to restore normal function to teeth. Used for biting and chewing, they are subject to normal wear and tear. Occasionally these actions can chip or damage a crown, making replacement necessary.
  • Receding gums: If gums are pulling away from a crown, this could be a sign of gum disease. Once gum disease is halted, the gums will not regrow to cover the exposed natural tooth below the crown. The patient should have the crown replaced up to the gum line to protect the natural tooth base and prevent bacteria from collecting under the crown.

Are you experiencing pain in the tooth under a crown or is it sensitive to heat or cold? Call the office of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to find out if the crown needs to be replaced. With Covid-19 precautions in place, patients can rest assured that Dr. Saltzman and his staff are doing their utmost to keep everyone healthy.

5 Common Foods and Drinks That Stain Tooth Enamel

Coffee and tea drinkers know their favorite beverages stain their teeth. However, many other drinks and food items also darken tooth enamel. Fortunately, with the advent of tooth whitening, much of that unwanted color can be removed. The Triangle’s trusted dentist, Dr. E. Scott Saltzman, regularly helps patients brighten their smiles and eliminate those stains. Dr. Saltzman and his staff have provided a list of some the worst culprits for tooth discoloration.

Besides coffee and tea, these five also stain teeth:

  • Balsamic vinegar: It’s delicious combined with olive oil on a fresh salad, but the dark color of balsamic vinegar discolors teeth. It’s acidic content also is bad for tooth enamel. However, those effects are somewhat counteracted by the salad itself because eating lettuce builds a protective film on teeth.
  • Red wine: Just as it stains tablecloths, red wine does the same for teeth. Diners can alternate their drink with clear water to help wash away the red color.
  • Tomato sauces: As with balsamic vinegar, tomatoes contain acid, which harms tooth enamel. Their deep red color darkens teeth. Mixing tomatoes or tomato sauce with other non-acid foods, pasta for example, will reduce tooth exposure to both stains and acid erosion.
  • Curry: The deep golden color of curry spices clings to teeth. Rinsing out with plain water after a curry meal will help wash away that yellow tinge.
  • Beets: Just slice into a beet and watch the deep color stain a counter top. Imagine that same color soaking into tooth enamel. The advice for curry holds true for beets. Rinse with water after consuming beets to reduce staining.

Are you looking for a more beautiful white smile? Call the office of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry today to get started on a brighter smile. The office has implemented the new Covid-19 precautions to keep staff and patients safe. Dr. Saltzman and his staff are back at work and ready to see new patients.

4 Important Tips for Dental Patients with Braces

It isn’t just teenagers who wear braces anymore. With the advent of clear braces, even some Baby Boomers are opting for straighter teeth. Family and cosmetic dentist Dr. E. Scott Saltzman, coordinates with Triangle-area orthodontists to make sure his patients get the best possible dental care.

Orthodontists direct the straightening procedure while Dr. Saltzman and his staff keep teeth clean and cavity-free. Patients with braces have unique needs that make regular dental visits vital to the positive outcome of the orthodontic work.

Dr. Saltzman recommends patients adhere to the following four important practices to get the best possible results from Orthodontia:

  • Keep appointments: Both orthodontic and dental appointments need to stay on schedule. This is even more important with braces in place. Brackets and wires make it more challenging for at-home cleaning. A professional hygienist has the tools to eliminate any plaque that collects in difficult-to-clean areas.
  • Expand at-home care: Brushing and flossing twice a day should continue during orthodontic treatment, but this is a good time to improve the at-home dental tool kit. Electric toothbrushes can be helpful in cleaning around brackets and wire. A water flosser adds another level of hygiene than helps both teeth and gums stay healthy.
  • Be vigilant about food and drink: Gum, popcorn, sticky candy and sugary drinks are all forbidden for those with braces. They can break wires, dislodge brackets, and leave behind residue that feeds bacteria in the mouth, causing plaque.
  • Don’t chew pencils: In fact, don’t chew anything that isn’t food, including pen caps, fingernails or anything else that isn’t meant to be swallowed. Although brackets are affixed with strong adhesive, chewing on hard objects can misalignment. 

Don’t hesitate to call of E. Scott Saltzman DMD Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for any of your dental needs. Our friendly and professional staff will be happy to help schedule a convenient appointment for you. 

It is important to note that our team and our office follow the CDC Guidelines in everything we do. Stop by our website to see why we are one of the safest dental offices in North Carolina.
