Why Surf City Smiles

Our comprehensive family dental services will grow-up with your children, ensuring they have oral health and healthy teeth for the rest of their life. When it comes to choosing a dentist, there are many different aspects one should ensure that they are tending to when striving to attain optimal health. One of the greatest contributors or factors of one’s overall health is the condition of their teeth and oral area.

Cleaning & Hygiene

It is easy to ignore some effects of poor oral hygiene as they are hidden inside your mouth. Gum disease can produce bleeding within an infected wound that can’t be seen from the outside, but has the potential of being the size of the palm of your hand. Take this fact into consideration. If an individual had that size of an infection on their leg, they would be hospitalized. Yet, a large percentage of people are unknowingly walking around with this infection in their mouth. Unfortunately, there are many people who know that they have a problem in their mouth but choose to ignore it. Oftentimes, the infection may not even hurt. It is imperative to know that it is indeed a serious infection.

Strong Teeth & Healthy Gums

We provide the latest tooth strengthening solutions and cleaning tools. One may think that the absolute worst consequences of poor dental health would be losing teeth, which may result in being a painful situation when sitting in a dentist’s chair. Some recent studies have connected common oral issues to illnesses, including diabetes, stroke, osteoporosis, premature birth and even Alzheimer’s disease. In the majority of cases, the exact nature of the link and strength are unclear, however, they suggest that oral health is extremely important for the preservation of overall health.

Gum disease spreads from infections growing from unhealthy bacteria that linger between the gums and teeth. Simply brushing teeth isn’t quite enough of a task to diminish such bacteria. As the bacterium lingers in the mouth, it travels inside the body towards major organs where they can create newer infections. Inflammation plays a major role in spreading effects of unhygienic oral health. Swollen and red gums signal the body’s entire inflammatory response to growing bacteria. If you happen to have inflammation in your gums, then it is vital to know that certain chemicals are produced in response to the infection’s growth.


There are many steps an individual can take to prevent such infections from occurring within their mouth. It is recommended for everyone to brush and floss after every meal. Although the amount of fluoride one uses in a day can have an effect of wearing of the enamel, it is fine to use a little amount in between meals. Make sure to floss and you will not only notice that your gums and teeth feel much better and fresher, but you will probably notice an increase in energy as well.
