Soft Drinks Can Be Hard on Teeth!

From a dental point of view, there's nothing soft about so-called soft drinks. Sugar does not directly damage teeth. That happens when certain bacteria in the mouth release acids that eat into tooth enamel. These bacteria, however, need food to survive and refined sugar is a very potent source. What you eat, they eat. If not eliminated promptly, they hang around to do their dirty work.

The real culprit in carbonated soft drinks, however, is the fizz itself: carbonic acid. A sugary, un-carbonated drink like Kool-Aid is actually easier on teeth than, say, Diet Pepsi. So watch your consumption of soft drinks and be sure to contact LaJolla Periodontics at (855) 563-7049 to schedule a dental checkup.

Bruxism: Not the Usual Grind

Sure, it's annoying when friends, spouses or children grind their teeth at night, but the effects could be much more serious than the loss of a good night's sleep on your part. This sleep disorder, called bruxism, can lead to a number of ailments, including loose or lost teeth. Even lighter grinding can wear down tooth enamel.

If you or someone in your family is grinding their teeth at night, call us at (855) 563-7049 to schedule an appointment with FistName Sigafoos, D.D.S..

Regular Dental Care Can Prevent Oral Cancer

You may or may not realize that you're screened for oral cancer during your regular dental cleanings at LaJolla Periodontics. According to the Oral Cancer Foundation, an American dies of oral cancer every hour of every day. It's a sad proposition, especially when you consider that it is highly curable with early diagnosis.

So if you’re not visiting the dentist regularly, please call our office today at (855) 563-7049 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sigafoos.
