Houston Dentist | Tips for Enjoying Ice Cream

July is National Ice Cream Month, which may cause some to wonder, “what does ice cream do to my teeth?” Or more to the point, “can I eat ice cream and keep my teeth healthy?”

Let’s answer the second question first: Yes, you can eat ice cream and maintain a healthy smile. That is not, however, an endorsement for eating ice cream with impunity.

June is Men’s Health Month. Do you have untreated oral health issues that are impacting your quality of life? Issues such as TMJ and sleep apnea can have far reaching consequences when left untreated. This June, take time to consider your oral health and give Dr. Konig a call to discuss any concerns you might be having.

Dental Debridement in HoustonDental debridement is a procedure that removes plaque and tartar (calculus) from above and below the gum line. Typically performed as a preliminary procedure leading up to a routine cleaning, debridement may be needed if it has been longer than one year since your last dental visit.

A surgical facelift targets the middle and lower areas of the face. During facelift surgery, skin is removed, and fat and tissue are repositioned to produce a lifted and more youthful appearance – sometimes reducing apparent age by as much as 10 years. Facelifts in the the dental office, by comparison, are non-surgical and can correct the lower one third of the face.  

Jaw development can have a profound impact on the strength, alignment, and appearance of the teeth. Malocclusion, which includes conditions such as overbite and underbite, crossbite, tooth crowding, and gaps in between teeth, is not typically genetic. However, feeding behaviors early in life, mouth breathing habits due to allergies or nasal issues during childhood, and trauma can all impact proper jaw development and encourage bite problems later in life.

October is National Dental Hygiene Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the important work done by dental hygienists and focused on educating patients to help optimize at-home oral hygiene routines.
