How often should I use mouthwash? Your Chicago dentist has the details you need to know

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

Fill the gap with the best approach to Dental Implants in Chicago

By now, you may be aware of some of the benefits of dental implants – very different from the longtime “go-to” options of dentures and bridges. You may have seen a loved one grapple with daily denture upkeep, not to mention the slipping, sliding, cracking, and warping. For bridges, the thought of having to sacrifice two healthy teeth to fill one space may make you shudder. The implant itself makes all the difference. This tiny titanium post stands in as the tooth root. The abutment connects this “artificial” root or implant to the part of your new tooth that all … Continue reading

Chicago, turn to “mighty multitaskers” of the dental world, Porcelain Veneers, for a dazzling smile

Let’s say the bleaching trays didn’t take. Your stains were resistant to in-office, at-home treatments, or a combination of both. Nevertheless, you’re not “stuck” with discolored teeth. Even the darkest stains are no match for these ultrathin layers of porcelain; bonded to your natural teeth, they cover stubborn surface stains caused by years of coffee consumption or deeper stains caused by cumulative wear, excess fluoride, or certain medications. Unlike whitening treatments, veneers make a number of other embarrassing conditions in the way of your dazzling smile disappear, including: Fractures, chips and breaks Crowding or uneven spacing Gaps in front teeth … Continue reading

Avoid the pitfalls of teeth grinding with your Chicago Dentist

Grinding is something that you don’t want to hear from the gears of your car, nor from your mouth! In today’s hectic society, however, the fact is that many more people show signs of bruxism, the condition in which the jaw clenches or grinds, wearing on teeth. At Big Smile Dental, we help our patients look and feel their best, which sometimes includes finding a solution to teeth grinding. But first, we must use our best Chicago detective work to recognize symptoms of this condition: Biting surfaces of teeth become worn down from clenching and grinding with extreme force. Tooth … Continue reading

Your Chicago Dentist can design dentures to give you a great new smile

When we smile, the last thing we want is to show off soft, pink gums and no teeth. Next in the line of nightmares is having a smile that looks anything but natural. In the good old days, dentures were so uniform and basic that every person who had a denture looked pretty much the same. Though function was restored, little though was given to the individuality of each person’s smile. Today, thankfully, we are as focused on aesthetics as we are on functionality. What this means is that your Chicago dentist doesn’t make your grandma’s dentures. On a technical … 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. Dentists do not perform root canal therapy as some kind of punishment. This procedure is actually very beneficial and – lo’ and behold – painless! 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

There is a time and a place for everything. The time to feel great about our smile is always now.
