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 […]

Your Regular Medications May Affect Your Oral Health

Posted on August 14, 2018
At least once a day, when I ask a patient about their new medications, they tell me they do have a new prescription, but it doesn’t matter for their teeth. Nine times out of ten, this is completely wrong! Nearly all medications will affect your oral health, although it’s frequently in ways we may not […]

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 […]

Dental Calculus: Worse Than Math Class?

Posted on July 31, 2018
There is this weird stuff that grows on our teeth in between cleanings. Have you noticed it? It’s this hard, chalky stuff, usually heaviest on those lower front teeth. It’s kind of whitish, maybe a bit yellow. That stuff is tartar. The dental term is actually calculus. But what is it, and where does it […]

Cheek Chewing May Point to a Deeper Problem

Posted on July 18, 2018
Moriscatio buccarum, or chronic cheek chewing, is a condition which causes some people to obsessively chew on the skin of their cheeks, lips, or tongue. Not too long ago, I dismissed cheek chewing as a bad habit at worse, and something patients just needed to pay attention to and just quit, easy as that. However, […]
