I do not have any real issues with my teeth and just saw the dentist about two months ago. However, I had to pay for everything since I did not have dental insurance. I am looking for a cheap low-cost dental plan for an individual.

Dental Benefit – Contagious Dental Cavities


Many people know that colds, chickenpox, and even yawns are contagious, However did you know that dental cavities can be contagious too? Sugar-laden candy bars are not the only cause of tooth decay.

Tooth decay actually results when bacteria in your mouth feed on food debris and produce acid as a byproduct. This mix of food, acid, saliva, and germs clings to your teeth as a filmy substance called plaque, which can erode teeth enamel and cause cavities to form.

No matter what you eat, cavities will not form without the help of such bacteria. These germs can spread from mouth to mouth via shared food and utensils, sneezing, kissing, and more, according to Edward “Trey” Wilson, DDS, a dentist in private practice in New York City and New Hope, Pa. — making cavities contagious.

Dental Benefit – Tooth Brush Tips


Choosing and maintaining your tooth brush tips.

1) When choosing a toothbrush you want to pick one with soft or extra soft bristle. The hard the brush bristles, the greater the risk of harming your teeth and gums. Therefore unless advised by your dentist soft bristled toothbrushes are the better pick.

2) Another good tip is to make sure you pick a toothbrush that has the seal of approval by the American Dental Association.

3) Keep in mind the type of brush you use is not nearly as important as brushing the right way and twice a day. Any approved toothbrush will be a good tool, but you have to know how to use it.

4) Change your toothbrush regularly. Throw away your old toothbrush after three months or when the bristles start to flare, whichever comes first.

5) If you notice that your toothbrush bristles flare sooner than every three months, It may be that you are brushing too hard. Therefore try easing up.

Dental Benefit – Dental Care and Teeth Cleaning


Your oral health starts with clean teeth. By keeping the area where your teeth meet your gums clean you can help to prevent gum disease. Keeping your tooth surfaces clean will help you prevent cavities. Consider these brushing basics from the American Dental Association:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily.
  • Replace your toothbrush every three or four months, or sooner if the bristles are frayed. A worn toothbrush won’t do a good job of cleaning your teeth.
  • Make sure to use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste.
  • The proper brushing technique is to:
  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to the gums.
  • Gently move the brush back and forth in short (tooth-wide) strokes.
  • Brush the outer surfaces, the inner surfaces, and the chewing surfaces of the teeth.
  • To clean the inside surfaces of the front teeth, tilt the brush vertically and make several up-and-down strokes.
  • Brush your tongue to remove bacteria and keep your breath fresh.

Dental Benefit – Advanced White Stripes


I am a minor can I use crest advanced white stripes?

Question: I am a minor with yellowish looking teeth. I hate to smile because I do not have white teeth and my mom will not pay to have my teeth whiten at the dentist. I also ask to use whiten strips but she says she was told they can make your teeth sensitive and would prefer for me not too. Is that true? And can I still buy them if I am a minor.

Answer: Your mother is correct. Whiten strips can make your teeth sensitive. You may wish to find a product that has a lower dosage, or use them for a shorter time. If you find your teeth are getting sensitive to the strips you may wish to stop treatment for a while.

However that being said, it is still something your mother would need to approve of before you go ahead and use any whiten strips. Maybe ask your mother if you can first start off with using a toothpaste product with whiten. I not addressing weather or not you can still buy them since I would suggest not going behind your mother back and do what she told you no to already.
