Posted on 11/30/2018 by Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry
If you want a whiter, brighter smile, you may think that the best thing to do is to try to whiten on your own at home. After all, those store-bought whitening kits aren't any different than dental whitening treatments, right? Wrong! There are many great reasons that you should forgo the pharmacy whiteners and get your teeth whitened in our office instead.

Are There Germs Hidden Within Your Toothbrush?
Posted on 11/20/2018 by Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry
Your mouth is full of germs, so it is safe to assume your toothbrush can harbor them as well. If you use your toothbrush at least twice a day, as directed, you are exposing it to the bacteria in your mouth often. Did you know that you can even find E. coli in your toothbrush? Caring for Your Toothbrush Every time you use your toothbrush, it comes into contact with thousands of bacteria that live in your mouth. It is essential that you not only take care of brushing your teeth and flossing. Don't forget about caring for your toothbrush. There are some simple tips to keep your toothbrush sanitized after each use. Other things you can do to keep your toothbrush clean use mouthwash before washing to prevent direct contact with bacteria from the mouth. Changing your toothbrush often (we recommend every two months or so) is also a good idea and will keep your mouth healthy. You should even get a new toothbrush after you've been sick to be on the safe side....

How to Store A Dislodged Tooth Safely
Posted on 10/20/2018 by Mettler & Griego Family Dentistry
Dentists recommend that in the event of a dislodged or knocked out tooth you get emergency dental treatment within the hour. When your tooth is completely knocked out of place, you may be wondering how you can store it until you get into your dentist's office. These tips can help you to properly store your tooth to maximize your chances of successful re-implantation. Handle the Tooth with Care Once your tooth has been knocked out, try not to handle it too often. Don't touch the root, or the portion that was under the gum. This part of the tooth is extremely fragile and can be damaged easily. Rinse it with Milk If the tooth fell and appears dirty, hold onto the crown and rinse it with milk. Don't wipe it off with a cloth or any other type of material. Place it in a Cup of Milk It is important to keep the tooth as moist as possible. A cup of milk is a good way to do that, especially if the tooth that was knocked out belonged to a child. Put the Tooth Back in Your Mouth If you are able to do so, slip the tooth back into its socket. Many teeth will slip in easily as long as you face it in the correct direction. If it doesn't seem to want to go, don't force it, and instead, focus on keeping it moist until you can see your dentist. You can even put the tooth back into your mouth and store it between your gum and cheek if a cup of milk isn't readily available for transport. We recommend that if your tooth is knocked out you get to our office within an hour of the accident. If your tooth has been dislodged, call us immediately to set up your emergency dental appointment....
