This goes without saying that you need to brush your teeth twice a day. If you drink a lot of coffee, you should brush more often. There are certain foods that cause the teeth to stain.

Using coconut oil is another natural way of keeping teeth whiter. A theory suggests that if you apply coconut oil to your teeth after you brush, twice a day, your teeth can become whiter. You can also put a few drops of this oil on your toothbrush and brush your teeth with it.

A smart way of avoiding teeth staining is to drink through a straw. Liquids like red wine and cranberry juice can stain the teeth. When you consume these beverages using a straw, they do not come in contact with the teeth and hence cannot cause them to stain.

My dental treatment made me say “NO MORE TOOTH ACHES!”

That Monday morning, when I sat for breakfast, my hand went on my cheek putting a force on my molar tooth and my wife found me saying, “Ouch! This tooth is killing me big time!”

We both believed that it must be because of the overload of chocolate and ice cream that I had last night. I felt awkward for the first time because of my sweet tooth. I’d always savored sweet eatables but, thought I should reduce the frequency now considering the intensity of the soreness I felt. I did have a ‘mild sensitivity problem’ for which I resolved to use a toothpaste formulated to care for sensitive teeth to get over with it but, this time, it was quite different and definitely more aching.

Anyway, my wife gave me a few cloves and asked me to compress it between my teeth every once in a while whenever I felt the pain. I found myself chewing clove all the time even in the office. This continued for three or four more days until my secretary told me that it was high time I consulted a dentist because too much clove is also not good for health especially when it is not helping the tooth to be alright.

So, finally my wife researched and we decided to go the Ralhan Dentist in Burlington to get my tooth diagnosed.

We met Dr. Anil Ralhan and he assured me that whatever it is with my tooth, I will gradually be relieved of all the troubles and pain. After the diagnose, they found out that the pulp had become infected. My wife got a little worried when the Dr. told that I needed a root canal. But, without any ado, we went along with the surgery as they explained us properly why it was necessary. They told us that this therapy has the power to prevent teeth from experiencing further damage down the road as it involves cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth. Hence, it was undoubtedly the best thing to remove my toothache, permanently.

Then finally, on a nice Saturday morning I had my root canal done. I saw the cap being made on the same day as my root canal. This made me not to wear a temporary cap and then come back again for the permanent one. The pain was definitely lesser than that I thought I’d have. I was amazed at such a prompt and personal care. Now, after restoration, my tooth functions just properly and let alone the pain, even my sensitivity is non-existent.

You don’t go to a dentist often. So, when you do go to one, choose wisely. No need to avoid chocolates and ice creams anymore, because no more tooth aches!

“My son can eat candies again!”

Halloween is a time when children tend to receive a lot of candies and chocolates. My son was always excited for dressing up in his ‘Trick-or-Treat’ costume to travel from house to house asking for treats. It is a tradition I personally loved to observe.

However, since two-three weeks, my son was experiencing toothaches in different teeth every time. There were two weeks left for Halloween. It made me worry because I really didn’t wish to stop my son from enjoying this time of the year.

Eating candies after discussing who got what was one of my favorite observations in the children. I just couldn’t imagine my son not doing this year. So, I finally decided to consult a dentist.

Turns out it isn’t very easy to find a good dentist in Burlington. On a friend’s suggestion, we went to ‘Rahlan Dental’ to inquire what exactly the problem with my son’s teeth was. We were pleased to hear that their consultation fees were actually nothing. It was a free dental check-up. I had these nightmares that candies will rot my son’s teeth. We asked the doctor whether it was something serious or something which will pass like a week’s fling. The doctor informed us that the parts of teeth that are visible are safe from the acids secreted by anything sweet as they are washed away when we drink water or brush your teeth. But, the problem begins when sweets get lodged in the crevices of your teeth. This way the bacteria gets more time to feed on them. Hence, I learned that the quantity of sugar (especially through soft caramel candies which stick to the teeth) that we ingest is not an important factor but, the quantity of time it stays in the mouth.

The doctor advised us to go through a ‘hygiene service’ that they did as they strongly believed in taking every precaution possible, to prevent future diseases and disorders from existing inside your mouth.

They had already examined my son’s teeth. The next step was to clean and assess them.

Then, they began with their professional work which included the following

1. Dental cleanings

2. Assessments

3. Dental x-rays

4. Teeth whitening

5. Laser services

6. Custom sports mouth guards

After this, they even recommended ways through which we can improve our dental care at home, and even answered all of questions and concerns. My son learned that to break down the process which starts after we consume anything sweet, one should wash his/her teeth thoroughly. Also, many popular candies have sugar-free versions which make it impossible for the bacteria to exist.

So, whatever you eat, the concern is to keep good dental habits and keep visiting a dentist once in a while but, never stop celebrating with candies and chocolates. It’s been a week since my son has gone through the dental hygiene clean up and his teeth are absolutely fit to consume all sorts of candies. So, ‘Happy Halloween!’
