Dental Warranty is a comprehensive plan, and I’m proud to say they’ve thought of everything. Through Dental Warranty, Taylor Dental now offers coverage for a wide range of repairs, replacements, and procedures. Here are a few of the benefits we’re most excited about. 1. Dental Warranty is “lifeproof,” which means your smile is protected from unavoidable problems like broken appliances, accidents, decay, and more. 2. The plan offers full-value coverage, so we can give you up to 100% of the original value of the treatment when you’re replacing or repairing a product the warranty covers.

bumps and scrapes while out hiking, or you might encounter poisonous plants, such as poison ivy or poison oak. Having quick access to cold water, soap, antiseptics (hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol), and calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream can keep infections at bay. TEACH FIRE SAFETY. When you build a fire, especially with kids, teach them about fire safety. This includes building the fire itself. Pick a spot away from brush and overhanging branches and create a pit surrounded by rocks. Before lighting a fire, have a bucket of water and a shovel nearby so you can quickly extinguish it when ready. Finally, remember to only build a fire as big as you need. A larger fire can be difficult to manage and keep under control.

Your kids couldn’t be more excited for their first game of the fall season, trying on their new jerseys and putting their all into practices leading up to the first game. You, on the other hand, are excited for them, but you’re also a little nervous thinking about their safety as they head out onto the field. We get it. As a dental practice, we understand that sports can be fun when the proper safety gear is in place. We see too many cases of fractured or lost teeth from impact during sports.

These removable, protective devices keep the mouth and teeth safe by reducing the risk of injury or damage from impact. Mouthguards can reduce the risk of injury by 99%. WHAT MAKES CUSTOM SPORTS MOUTHGUARDS SAFER While you can buy over-the-counter mouthguards, custom appliances prescribed by your dentist offer more protection and a customized fit, making themmore comfortable and more likely to stay in place during impact.

amily Camping Trip give notice at all. Keep a close eye on the sky and monitor the weather on a radio. If a storm appears, seek shelter immediately and stay out of low-lying areas. When you’re in mountainous or hilly terrain, a little rain is all it takes for flash floods to occur. If you’re in a ravine when it starts raining, get out immediately. ALWAYS STICK TOGETHER. It’s a good idea to hike with a buddy and keep a whistle around your neck or in your pack. You never know what you might encounter or when you’ll need help. Hiking with kids is also a great time to teach them to recognize landmarks and be aware of their surroundings. If you have a digital camera or smartphone, show kids how to create a trail of digital breadcrumbs or pictures to help them find their way back to camp.

What Is Causing Your Teeth to Stain? Avoiding Discoloration and Keeping Your Teeth White

Everyone enjoys having a bright, white smile, but it can be difficult to maintain. Foods and drinks can affect the color of your teeth, even with regular brushing and whitening. Knowing what stains your teeth will help you take steps to avoid or prevent future discoloration. WHY FOODS STAIN TEETH Three main substances alter the color of teeth: chromogens, tannins, and acids. Chromogens are strong pigments that cling to tooth enamel and often create more stubborn stains if they mix with other stain-enhancing factors like tannins, which are chemicals commonly found in black teas. Acidic foods or drinks, such as berries and soft drinks, soften and erode enamel, making it easier for the tooth to stain. HOW TO AVOID STAINING YOUR TEETH One of the easiest ways to prevent liquids from staining teeth is to drink from a straw. This ensures coffee, tea, soda, or alcohol will have less contact with teeth. Another good habit is to drink water or brush your teeth directly after a meal so staining substances aren’t left on your teeth unchecked for the rest of the day. Biannual dental visits are also a great way to remove or prevent stains. When dentists polish the surface of teeth, they can fill in rough parts or fine cracks that make staining more likely. SIMPLE METHODS TO KEEP TEETH BRIGHT Using whitening products, such as toothpaste and mouthwash, are a great way to whiten your teeth at home. Both of these options not only remove surface stains on the enamel but also prevent cavities, fight off gum disease, and freshen breath. You can also use whitening strips at home, which are quick, easy, and cost-efficient. While you’re here, don’t forget to ask a teammember about the whitening products we have available. We also have our Smile White for Life program, which is designed to help our patients keep their teeth pearly white throughout the year.
