Attack Of The Gummy Bear

Farmingtonaffordable family dentist

Sundance Dental & Orthodontics in Farmington NM cares about their patients and their beautiful smiles. We offer a key warning about a lesser-known danger of sticky candy.
 
Most people know that sugar is not your teeth’s friend. Eating sticky candy creates the perfect environment for cavity-causing bacteria in your mouth.
 
Besides the sugar, there is a physical toll of chewing on sticky candy. It can cause a condition in the temporomandibular joint called Temporomandibular Disorder (TMJ). The jaw is a delicate joint and sticky candy increases the possibility of moving the jaw out of alignment.
 
Worried about giving up the sweet stuff? When you stop eating highly-sweet things, your taste buds adjust and you will enjoy foods with more subtle flavors, such as fruits. So don’t give up! Your taste buds will change and your teeth and jaw will thank you!
 
If you
  • hear a popping or clicking noise in your jaw,
  • have pain in your jaw or around your ears, or
  • feel like your bite is out of alignment, call to make an appointment today. 
We can treat TMJ issues with a variety of methods including relaxation techniques, diet and lifestyle modifications, or orthodontic treatment. Physical therapy is often effective for treating more severe cases of TMJ.
Along with healthy teeth, we also want you to have a gorgeous smile that you can be proud of. If you have any questions about teeth whitening, smile makeovers, or other dentistry procedures, give us a call today. At Sundance Dental & Orthodontics, we serve patients throughout the New Mexico area, including the communities of Farmington, Rio Rancho, Gallup, and Cortez CO.
 
We hope to hear from you soon!
