General Dentistry in Farmington: Debunking Dental Myths

General Dentistry in Farmington

Are you skeptical of a dental fact that you heard from a co-worker or a neighbor? Today’s Sundance Dental & Orthodontics blog post focuses on dental-related myths prevalent in the area. If you have any questions about dental health or general dentistry in Farmington, call us and we’ll tell you if it’s fact or fiction. Here are a few dental myths we’ve heard recently:

All Sugar Is Equally Bad For Teeth

We all know that sugar increases our risk of tooth decay, but some types are worse than others. Sugar-based foods that sit on the teeth are more dangerous than those that are swallowed immediately. For example, sipping a soda or sucking on a mint can be worse than eating a candy bar all at once.

You Don’t Need To Worry About Baby Teeth

Many parents have this belief because they think that baby teeth will fall out anyway, but healthy primary teeth serve several important purposes. They allow the child to eat and speak properly. They retain proper spacing of teeth. A healthy smile, no matter how old you are, instills confidence and positive self-esteem. Healthy baby teeth eliminate the pain of decay which disrupts normal daily activity.

Pulling A Tooth Is Just As Good As A Root Canal

Saving natural teeth is always the very best option. Nothing can completely replace your natural tooth. An artificial tooth can sometimes cause you to avoid certain foods. Keeping your own teeth is important so that you can continue to enjoy the wide variety of foods necessary to maintain the proper nutrient balance in your diet. Root canals are a cost-effective way to treat teeth with damaged pulp and are usually less expensive than a tooth extraction and placement an implant.
