Soft drinks are a leading cause of tooth decay due to the combined effects of acid and sugar they contain. Acid attacks and breaks down enamel while sugar is used as an energy source by cavity causing bacteria. The chart below shows the amount of acid and sugar in different types of soft drinks.
Protect that smile Everyone by visiting your local dentist on a regular basis. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
Just like any other daily hygiene activity, please make it a point to floss your teeth on a twice daily or routine basis to prevent cavities and gum disease. It will make visiting the dentist a much more pleasant experience as well.
Good article on the differences between Advil (ibuprofen) and Tylenol (acetaminophen). Dr. Boers frequently notices patients don’t know which one to take in cases of oral pain. For example, in the absence of gastrointestinal or kidney issues, Advil has a distinct advantage over Tylenol in dental pain situations due to its anti-inflammatory effects.

Did you know. the average lifespan of a dental filling is 8-10 years. The durability of any dental restoration is influenced not only by the material it is made from but also by the dentist’s technique when placing the restoration. Other factors include the supporting materials used in the procedure and the patient’s cooperation during the procedure. The length of time a restoration will last is dependent upon your dental hygiene, home care, and diet and chewing habits.
Dry mouth—or xerostomia (zero-STOW-meuh)—may be a symptom of a medical condition,or it may be caused by other factors such as medications, medical treatments, or certain habits, like tobacco use.

Our upper and lower teeth are supposed to fit together like puzzle pieces and touch lightly only when chewing food. However, on occasion, we all may grind our teeth 1) consciously, when we are anxious or angry 2) unconsciously, as a result of sleep disturbances. This is called bruxism when the grinding occurs on a regular basis. Over the years bruxism results in 1) teeth wear or flattening of the teeth 2) micro or macro fractures/cracks of the teeth or fillings 3) teeth sen. sitivity 4) loose teeth 5) aching jaws especially in the morning Unfortunately, there is no sure fire way to stop bruxism in patients. The condition can be managed, however, in a variety of ways. Dr Boers 10+ years of dental experience puts him in a position of expertise in recognizing and treating teeth grinding. Custom fabricated TEETH NIGHTGUARDS are a practical way to protect your teeth, gums, jaws, and quite possibly get a better nights sleep, he believes. Give Dr Boers office a call at 715-623-7425 for any of your tooth/jaw related issues.
What is the 3M Denture (Mini Implant) Attachment System? This is a revolutionary way to attach your current dentures — using mini dental implants — that requires no messy pastes or adhesives. Dentures snap out, they snap in, they stay put. Why Mini Dental Implants?. Anyone that uses 2 or 3 tubes of Fixodent (at $5 per tube) per week to keep their dentures in place knows these costs add up over the years and decreases their quality of life. 10 tubes per month equals $600 per year on denture adhesive. Dr. Boers believes mini dental implants are the best way to keep denture prostheses such as complete dentures in place. Give him a call TODAY for a free consultation to see if this solution is right for you.

We took my mother-in-law to Northside Dental to have her dentures re-sized. Dr. Chad Boers did a remarkable job in fitt. ing them to her mouth. It is not easy to take a 92 year old woman to the dentist. Dr. Chad and Staff made her comfortable, were very caring and gentle while working on her dentures. In less than an hour she had a well fitting denture that looked great! Thanks you Dr. Boers! We highly recommend Northside Dental!
Friendly accommodating and personable. He worked me in for my routine exam around my work schedule and when I had a dental emergency he got me in the next day! Highly recommend!.
