When you visit our office for a routine hygiene examination and cleaning, we check your teeth for specific problems that can affect your oral health. Of course, we thoroughly clean your teeth, but we are looking to see if there is a buildup of plaque and bacteria that would indicate your teeth aren’t getting as clean as they should be. We also look for signs of decay, also known as cavities. Many people are aware of the term “cavity”, but do you really understand what it means and how it is caused? Read on to learn more about cavities and what can happen if they are not treated.
At Vargas Dental Associates, we continuously stress the importance of caring for your oral health. While routine care in our office is extremely important, caring for your teeth during the rest of the year is just as important.

It will save you a lot of money in the end when you do not need additional dental care. Here are some helpful tips:

At Vargas Dental Associates, one of our top priorities is to help you look and feel great about your oral health, because a healthy smile is paramount to wellness. One of the best ways to do this is to make wise choices in your everyday life that do not negatively affect your oral health. Unfortunately, some patients make poor lifestyle choices that can negatively impact their oral health. While these habits might not be affecting their oral health now, they will most certainly lead to problems in the future. Here are some lifestyle choice that patients should avoid if possible:
We don’t know about you, but we are thrilled to have warm weather and the start of the official start of summer around the corner. We know that many of our patients have busy schedules, so hopefully, you will get some time to relax during the summer.

At Vargas Dental Associates, we are passionate about the state of our patients’ oral health. During routine examinations, we thoroughly inspect and clean your teeth. We act a bit like detectives because we can tell what kinds of foods you might eat and how well you brush your teeth. We still have a number of patients who are diligent in brushing their teeth but fail to understand the importance of flossing every day. Flossing your teeth is just as important as brushing your teeth.
With the arrival of spring and summer right around the corner, we know that the temperatures are only going to be increasing from here on out. Remaining hydrated is important each and every day, but it is especially important during warm and hot weather. Aside from the weather, the spring and summer also bring the return of many sports and outdoor activities. During strenuous activity, it is important to hydrate and your drink of choice may be a sports beverage. While these drinks may be good at replacing electrolytes lost during vigorous activity, they are usually high in sugar. Oftentimes, we think about the sugary foods that we are consuming and don’t realize that certain beverages are just as unhealthy for your oral health.
