Permanent Retainers: Worth the Extra Work

Posted on November 5, 2018
We previously posted about some of the important steps after ortho to ensure your teeth keep their new positions (https://www.lakebaldwindental.com/blog/2018-02-06-follow-what-happens-af…). However, most of that post centered on retainers that you can take out and which are usually worn overnight. But what about the retainers that get glued in place? Permanent retainers, also known as bonded […]

The Scary Stories Our Teeth Can Tell

Posted on October 30, 2018
It’s almost Halloween and my four-year-old is suddenly obsessed with all things skeleton. He especially loves spooky skulls, and since he knows Momma and Dada clean teeth for a living, he really likes looking at the teeth in those skulls. Which got me thinking: how much can we tell about a person by their teeth? […]

Is Your Dentist a Basketball Legend?

Posted on October 24, 2018
We wanted to take a moment this week to shout out a huge CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. Dunn! Many of you may not know, but your dentist is a hot shot on the basketball court. (Did you see the time he won $10,000 for sinking three near impossible shots in under 24 seconds at a Magic […]

Eugenol: Fall Flavored Medicated Fillings

Posted on September 25, 2018
It’s official: the first day of Fall was this weekend! I love all the flavors of fall. Pumpkin spice, ginger, apple cinnamon, and of course clove. Obviously, clove makes us all think of one thing: eugenol! Right? Just me?  Eugenol is a common ingredient in dental materials. Its base is clove oil and it has […]

There Is Still Time to Use Your Dental Benefits!

Posted on September 12, 2018
Ah, fall. The kids are back in school, Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back, and hurricanes are bearing down on the Eastern Seaboard. For Floridians, all these things remind us that we’re nearing the end of another year. But before the holidays hit us, you may want to check on your dental insurance and see what […]

Food Traps: Not Convenient Snack Storage

Posted on August 28, 2018
Our teeth like to touch. As we discussed in a previous entry (https://www.lakebaldwindental.com/blog/2018-05-22-super-eruption-not-abo…), teeth will shift to try and achieve contact with their neighbors if necessary. However, sometimes teeth seem like they are touching when they actually are not. A very slight gap between teeth that may go unnoticed is called an open contact, and […]

End of Summer: Do You Have Chlorine Stains?

Posted on August 20, 2018
It’s back to school time, which also means it’s the end of summer. Like most Floridians, you may have spent a lot of time swimming, and will probably keep on swimming as these brutally hot days keep beating down on us. Many of our young patients are even competitive swimmers and clock a ton of […]

Benzocaine for Babies: Just Say NO!

Posted on August 6, 2018
Teething is one of the most dreaded phases of parenting an infant. When a little one is in pain with those achy gums, it seems like nothing can soothe them. Sure, we try those little frozen teethers, let them gnaw on pacifiers, even use our fingers to try and lessen the discomfort. But at the […]
