Oral Health and Overall Health Depend on Each Other More Than You Realize

If any part of that machine were to break or not perform as it should, it would affect other parts of said machine and, ultimately, performance would lag behind. We want your oral health operating at peak performance, as well as your overall health. At our office in Cherry Hill, NJ, we’re a lot more than just a dental team.

Do You Know How To Brush Your Teeth Properly?

shutterstock_140040793Brushing your teeth isn’t a very difficult task to complete. In fact, it’s pretty easy. It’s almost too easy for some people, because they either don’t want to brush their teeth (gross), or they don’t know how to properly brush them. There is a right and wrong way to brush, believe it or not. It takes work to get in the crevices of your teeth and thoroughly clean them. That food you had last night? If you didn’t brush or floss this morning, chances are you still have food particles stuck between your teeth. Food that stays in between teeth will rot and make you more susceptible to disease or infection. At our office in Cherry Hill, NJ, we want you to know that brushing your teeth is vital to the health of your mouth, as well as your overall well-being. Dr. Barry Polansky is sort of an expert on proper brushing techniques, and he wants to share his friendly tips with you.

Routine dental check-ups detect problems early.Healthy teeth don’t just happen. They take time and attention. Find out the why’s and how’s of routine dental examinations and good oral hygiene.

You can maintain good oral health very simply: through periodic dental check-ups and good dental hygiene. Barry Polanski DMD is the affordable dentist in Cherry Hill, New Jersey who wants you to have the individualized care and patient education your mouth needs without breaking your budget. In fact, Dr. Polanski offers a free new patient exam at his Cherry Hill office.

Why check-ups and good hygiene are so important.

Frankly, many dental problems could be avoided or lessened with twice yearly examinations and dental cleanings. The mouth is full of bacteria which thrive on sticky plaque that builds up on tooth surfaces and at the gum line every time we eat. Gradually, this plaque forms hard tartar which, if not scraped away, causes gums and bone to recede in a condition called periodontitis. Accumulated plaque also contributes to dental cavities. In short, it’s wise to catch dental problems early to avoid tooth loss and expensive restorations.

The Amazing Benefits of Green Tea!

Not only is tea satisfying to the taste buds, but there are so many different kinds to choose from that, making drinking a new tea an exciting experience. Many people may not know this, but there are many benefits that can be found in green tea, making it one of the healthiest teas you can drink. By being aware of the amazing advantages drinking green tea has, maybe the next cup you have will be more enjoyable!

Green tea is very heart healthy, as it contains catechin. Catechin is an antioxidant that wards off and prevents cell damage. Studies also support the notion that green tea increases the part of your brain that controls working memory. This is especially helpful when you have a big test or a long day at work with meetings ahead of you. Green tea has also been shown to prevent the development of the plaque linked to Alzheimer’s disease, which is another example as to how it is beneficial to your brain health!

Green tea is also great for those living with diabetes, as it has been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels. Along with catechin, green tea also contains an amino acid known as theanine. Theanine has a calming effect, causing the people who drink green tea to feel relaxed. If you are trying to lose weight, drinking green tea is also great for increasing your metabolism, ergo being able to burn more fat calories! As you can see, there are amazing benefits to drinking green tea, and we invite you to experience the advantages for yourself.
