Halitosis vs. Bad Breath And How You Can Handle It!

Good afternoon,

Today we are talking about a subject that can be very uncomfortable for some people: Halitosis. Halitosis is more than just bad breath and a lot of times can be an indicator of an underlying problem. Some causes for Halitosis are:

  • Cavities and Gum Disease
  •  Mouth, Nose or Throat infections/problems
  • Dry Mouth
  • Smoking and Tobacco Use
  • Other chronic problems

However, there is hope! There are several ways to handle Halitosis and get your mouth on the right track.  Here is an article from MouthHealthy.org to give you a bit of information to learn about these particular causes. If you are ready to get your Halitosis and underlying causes back under control and consult with a kind, caring professional, contact Dr. Mansfield today!

The Importance of Dental X-Rays!

Good afternoon!

We sometimes have patients ask us if they can skip their dental x-ray, or why it is so important to have them. This is because Dr. Mansfield (and other dentists) work hard to provide the best possible care to our patients, but sometimes an oral examination doesn't tell the whole picture. Dental X-rays are so important so the dentist can get a full picture of what is going on in your mouth.

To learn more about types of dental x-rays and why x-rays are necessary for good oral health, visit this article from colgate.com entitled 'The Importance Of Dental X-Rays'.

If you haven't had oral x-rays in awhile and want to come see a caring dentist who can help you get your smile back on track, come visit us in our Germantown, Maryland office! You can contact us and learn more at: www.germnatowndentalcare.com

The Biggest Two-Letter Reason for Why You Get Cavities

Good afternoon,

Today we are sharing a few points from a great article on patientconnect365.com! It's entitled 'The Biggest Two-Letter Reason for Why You Get Cavities.'

If you are scratching your head wondering what we might be referring to... the answer is pH!

"Isn’t it interesting how one person can do a wonderful job brushing and flossing their teeth each day and still end up with cavities, while someone with poor habits can sidestep cavities altogether? In the few minutes it’ll take you to read this article, you’ll get a glimpse into one reason this happens. We’ll start by making a bold statement. That is: the primary reason people get cavities has a lot less to do with brushing and flossing, and a lot more to do with something most of us know little to nothing about: pH. We promise to make this easy on you – understanding pH is simpler than you think. No need to dust off your high school chemistry book!" 

If you want to understand more about pH and how it affects your oral health, take a look at the article link here!
