How to Rid Your Mouth of Tobacco Stains
Posted on 6/15/2019 by Bisson Dentistry
Tobacco stains on the outside of the teeth can be something that is unsightly. If you are someone that smokes, then you know about this struggle. It is sometimes hard to deal with these stains because they are constant. The more you smoke, the bigger issues you're going to have with these stains. Removing Tobacco Stains from Your Teeth Cleaning your teeth with baking soda can remove a lot of stains. It can work to remove those hard to remove stains, such as tobacco stains and others that are on the outside of the teeth. Hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash can also help with removing the stains when it is used alongside the baking soda. Scrub with the soda, then rinse with the peroxide and then do not rinse your mouth or drink water for at least a half hour or more after doing this. Speak with our office about whitening techniques that are super-strength that can help to remove the stains and whiten the teeth overall. Everyone can smile with ease when they come to use for this whitening power. If possible, you should try to quit smoking. While it is definitely something that is hard to do, it is important that you consider the benefits that come from being able to smile with ease and without these stains. You can speak with our office regarding smoking cessation offers that are available to you.

We have many whitening options for you to go with so you can find the best smile that you need and want.

Why We Look for Signs of Oral Cancer During Each Full Exam
Posted on 5/25/2019 by Bisson Dentistry
Each year, nearly 53,000 people are diagnosed with oral cancer in the U.S., and of those newly diagnosed individuals, there is only a 57% five-year survival rate. Unfortunately, this number has not shown any significant improvement in decades, so early detection is essential in order for a successful outcome. That is why we always look for signs of oral cancer during each full exam that we perform in our office. What Happens during an Oral Cancer Screening? Oral cancer screenings are physical and visual exams that check for signs of oral cancer. These regular screenings can help to identify mouth cancer in its earliest stages when it is easiest to remove and treat. The process is relatively straightforward, and it involves us examining the inside of your mouth to look for white or red patches and sores. We will also check for lumps and bumps by feeling the inside tissues of your mouth. Are You at an Increased Risk for Oral Cancer? While we perform oral cancer screenings on all of our patients, some will be at an increased risk for the disease. This includes patients who have any tobacco use, including chewing tobacco, cigars, and cigarettes. Heavy alcohol use is also a risk factor, as is significant sun exposure. If you previously had an oral cancer diagnosis, it is also especially important that we inspect your mouth regularly. What Are the Signs of Oral Cancer? The scary thing about oral cancer is that it doesn't always come with obvious symptoms. In other cases, signs can be hidden in areas of your mouth that you won't be able to see, but our exams can detect them. However, if you notice small white, black, or red sores that last for at two weeks or longer, you should be sure to point out this area of concern to us. Are you concerned about mouth sores or simply need an oral cancer screening? If so, call us today to set up your appointment....

You Still Need to Brush and Floss with Dental Implants to Avoid Gum Disease
Posted on 5/15/2019 by Bisson Dentistry
Dental implants have been seen as a lifesaver where teeth are concerned. In the past, when people began losing teeth, they would inevitably have to have either their upper teeth or their lower teeth removed (or both, in some cases). This means that for those adults, their bone loss in their jaws began from the time their teeth were removed. Dental implants are revolutionary, in that they look and operate much like real teeth without bone loss happening to your jawbone. However, just because you got dental implants does not mean that you no longer need to brush and floss. Not sure what we're talking about? Keep reading to find out about brushing and flossing with dental implants. The Wonder of Dental Implants With dentures, adults would have to have all of their teeth pulled, and then the dentures would be fitted over the teeth. Adults would remove them every night. There was nothing to anchor the teeth into the mouth, which always led to bone loss. In addition, adults complained they were not able to eat all of the foods they liked if they were wearing dentures. Dental implants have revolutionized the industry. Rather than having all of your remaining teeth removed for dentures, dental implants can be made to fit one tooth, or a series of teeth. Dental implants are anchored to the jaw, and look or function like real teeth. This is a good thing, because it means that you do not lose bone or gum tissue. However, it also means you have to do more to take care of your dental implants. Just like with your real teeth, you need to brush and floss your implants twice a day. If you don't, it is possible for bacteria to get into spaces between your implants and your gumline, which could cause decay and infection. If that happens, you might have to have additional work done- which no one wants to have happen. If you have questions about your dental implants, or you just want to talk to someone about the importance of brushing and flossing, why not give us a call?...
