Keeping Your Enamel Strong and Healthy with FOOD

Aug 15, 2017   //   by Emery & Emery Team   //   News  //  No Comments

fresh eggsAcidic foods and drinks tend to cause tiny lesions or holes in tooth enamel, and calcium and phosphate help redeposit minerals back into these lesions.

 

Best Source of Calcium (Adults Need 1,000mg)

Cheese- research shows eating cheese raises your pH and increases your saliva. Great source of calcium and protein to strengthen teeth.

Spinach and Kale- high in calcium and folic acid which helps to reduce gum disease.

Almonds- very low in sugar and high in calcium and protein.

Fish- contains lots of vitamin D which helps the body absorb calcium in the small intestine. If calcium is not properly absorbed in your body you will get breakdown of your bones and teeth making them brittle.

Tofu- a great source of calcium, protein, vitamin K, and magnesium.

 

Best Source of Phosphorous (Adults Need 700-1,000mg)

Red Meat and Chicken- along with protein, high in phosphorous.

Eggs- One jumbo egg contains 125 milligrams of phosphorus. You need 700 milligrams of phosphorus each day, and that jumbo egg supplies 18 percent. A large egg provides 99 milligrams of phosphorus and a medium-sized egg has 87 milligrams. A small egg delivers 75 milligrams of phosphorus.

Pumpkin Seeds- are very high in phosphorus. 1 cup of seeds contains 1,591mg of phosphorus.

 

Enjoy these foods for a healthy smile.

Ten Steps To Improve Diabetic Health

Jul 25, 2017   //   by Emery & Emery Team   //   News  //  No Comments
  1. Move. Being active 30 minutes a day slows type 2 diabetic progress.
  2. Fruits and vegetables five portions a day lowers type 2 risk.
  3. Drink smarter, an average soda has 15-18 teaspoons of sugar.
  4. Whole grains give refined fiber and are excellent noodles for pasta.
  5. Be protein smart, less meat more almonds, cottage cheese, and kidney beans.
  6. Always eat breakfast otherwise you’ll overeat at lunch causing sugar spikes.
  7. Limit salt lowering diabetic complications of high blood pressure and stroke.
  8. Understand portion control. Keep your waistline in check.
  9. Always get a yearly eye exam. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in adults.
  10. Cook at home more. Studies show restaurants are higher in sodium, fat, and calories.

Sue’s Summer Family Fun 2017

Jul 10, 2017   //   by Emery & Emery Team   //   News  //  No Comments

Summer is all about vacation and good times. Lucky for Adrienne and me we were able to travel with family to a beautiful wedding in Vail, Colorado. It was a magical weekend in the mountains with family from England, California, Colorado, Wyoming, and Arizona. My niece was the exquisite bride with all her elegant bridesmaids. Our relatives from England were impressed with all the gorgeous smiles! A huge thank you to my favorite Dental Team at the Emery’s! Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.

Emergency Rooms for Dental Needs Not Always Best

Jun 27, 2017   //   by Emery & Emery Team   //   News  //  No Comments

emergencyOral care problems are placing a considerable strain on the health care system due to the increase of people looking for dental treatment in emergency rooms instead of dental offices.

Statistics from federal data shows a rise in patients from 1.1 million in 2000 to 2.1 million in 2010. Double the amount or about one visit every 15 seconds. The majority of these patients are suffering from dental decay that could easily have been prevented with routine dental office visits.

Most hospitals don’t have the facilities or staff to provide comprehensive dental care. Therefore, many patients only receive antibiotics or pain medication, but the underlying dental problem is never addressed. In too many cases, the patient returns to the emergency room with the same or a worse problem.

Natural vs Synthetic Toothbrush

Jun 14, 2017   //   by Emery & Emery Team   //   News  //  No Comments

toothbrushBoth synthetic and natural toothbrush bristle types are available today although synthetics are much more common. Nylon and polyester are the main synthetic materials used for toothbrush bristles. Before synthetics became the norm for toothbrush bristles, boar and horse hair bristle types only were used. A natural bristle brush is more porous and will tend to collect moisture, odors and bacteria quicker than a synthetic bristle brush.
