Dishing Up Better Dental Health

A woman enjoys smiles with dental implants. Welcome to the blog of Dr. Anthony Dailley, of Anthony Dailley, DDS right here in Berkeley, CA. We offer services for all of your dental needs from preventative care to cosmetic procedures, backed by years of experience in private practice. In this blog, we’ll cover all aspects of dental implants and dental health tips to help you improve your oral health.

When treating all sorts of patients for dental implants, we have noticed that their tooth loss is often a result of poor oral care and a lack of tooth-friendly diet. This dangerous combination leads to tooth decay, periodontal disease, gum disease and more. If left untreated, these disease could fester and eat away at your teeth, causing unsightly stains, decay, etc.

Better Foods for Better Teeth

A lot of the issue can be derived from what patients put into their mouths in the first place. Oftentimes they don’t realize that some of the foods they consume can be harmful, eating away at the enamel and stick to the teeth.

To give a better idea of the best foods for your teeth, keep these following food items in mind during your next visit  to the grocery store:

Good to Eat

  • Cheese
  • Celery
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Peppers
  • Sesame Seeds

Eat in Moderation

  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Red Wine

Avoid Eating

  • Candy
  • Sticky foods
  • Soda

Tooth Loss: Dental Implants Can Help?

But what happens if your tooth decay has become so bad that the dentist says it’s time for the tooth to be removed? Well, should that occur than Dr. Dailley can offer one of the best tooth replacement treatments available to you – dental implants. This unique tooth replacement treatment is the only treatment that can regenerate the jawbone underneath, revitalizing your bone into growing stronger and more durable. Dental implants are permanent fixtures, with little to no risk of the implant loosening or falling out.

Since they are permanent, dental implants both look and feel just like natural teeth, fixed comfortably and topped with a natural-looking porcelain crown. Dr. Dailley will work closely with you to ensure that your dental implant fits into your smile seamlessly. From picking the shading to the shaping, Dr. Dailley will make sure that your dental implant fits like a glove without sacrificing it’s natural appearance.
