How often should I use mouthwash?

Mouthwash is something that, for many, seems like a good way to keep the breath fresher throughout the day. This oral care product is good for much more than kissable breath. In the grand scheme of things, mouthwash is an important component to your oral hygiene routine. There are several mouthwash products on the market today. Some contain fluoride while others do not. Some are alcohol free or low in alcohol content. Many state that they are anti-bacterial. Which mouthwash you use will be up to you to decide. Dr. Siegel gets to know his patients and their dental needs. … Continue reading

Various types of dental floss may be used to keep your Chicago smile healthy

Various types of dental floss may be used to keep your Chicago smile healthy

One of the most important things we can do for our smile is to brush and floss our teeth daily. To neglect the second-step of hygiene is to live with the risk of cavity development in between teeth and gum disease. Dr. Siegel encourages his patients to floss at least once a day after brushing and is happy to demonstrate proper technique. How one flosses depends mainly on existing dental work. Additional aspects of flossing include what type of floss to use. Many different types of dental floss are available to our Chicago area patients. Products may differ in texture, … Continue reading

Mall kiosks are for mobile phones and honey-baked hams; leave Teeth Whitening options in Chicago to us

Porcelain Veneers can Improve Teeth Appearance Chicago

Trust a mall kiosk to your calendar, sunglasses, or holiday fruitcake needs, but don’t trust a mall kiosk with your smile. The American Dental Association has been monitoring a troubling trend; whitening booths in shopping centers, spas, even cruise ships. The color of our teeth is so linked to our overall appearance that 96 percent of us equate pearly whites with sex appeal. Therefore, it’s not surprising you see whitening treatments lumped in with makeup, tanning, or hair salon services. Typically, when you leave the salon the worst you end up with is a cut to “grow into.” However, if … Continue reading

Let that impacted wisdom tooth free with the help of your Chicago Dentist

Ah, wisdom teeth! If only they imparted us with the wisdom to get them removed right away! This third set of molars is the final stage of oral development, typically growing in sometime during the teen years. During routine dental visits, x-rays show us the location of these teeth beneath the gums, and their projected path of growth. For many people, there simply isn’t enough room in the mouth to accommodate wisdom teeth. This is just one of the reasons we like to schedule removal of wisdom teeth when they are visualized in diagnostic imaging. An impacted wisdom tooth is … Continue reading

Fear not! The Root Canal procedure is easy with your Chicago Dentist

There are some dental procedures that are viewed in a positive light, even if one would prefer to avoid them. There are others, like the good old root canal, which has simply gotten a bad rap.

Many of the patients who receive this treatment in our Chicago dental practice are surprised to learn that what they had always believed about root canal therapy is simply not true. Even better than being a painless procedure in … Continue reading
