brushing teeth

Do you ever wonder about when it’s the right time to ditch your toothbrush? That is a very normal thought. We use them every day, twice a day to clean our mouths so it makes sense that they need to be replaced at some point in their life span. The American Dental Association says we need to replace our toothbrushes every 3 months. Let’s talk about some key signs that point to you needing to ditch your current toothbrush.

  1. Check out the bristles.

Take a look at the bristles’ part of your toothbrush. Are they crooked or bent? If the bristles aren’t straight, it’s time to toss it. When your bristles show too much wear and tear, it means it’s time to replace your toothbrush.

  1. Look even closer.

Check out the bristles even more. Do you see any debris at the bottom of the bristles? If there is debris living in the bottom of the toothbrush bristles then your toothbrush is dirty. At this point, it would need to be replaced.

  1. Any recent sickness?

If you have been sick recently, you need to replace your toothbrush. This makes total sense, but it is something people often forget to do. This is important to do to avoid reinfection and getting sick again.

  1. No touching!

Most households contain a toothbrush holder in the bathroom. This means that everyone’s toothbrush is placed in the holder. This is all fine and swell as it keeps the bathroom organized. However, do not let your toothbrush physically touch another toothbrush. This creates the opportunity for cross-contamination for bacteria. If your toothbrush is touching other toothbrushes, it’s time for a new one.

  1. Do you remember?

If you do not remember the last time you replaced your toothbrush, then the odds are probably in favor of getting a new one. It is important to keep your toothbrush fresh so you are achieving the best at-home cleaning as possible.

In addition to keeping your toothbrush fresh, it is important to keep up with your dentist visits as well. At Philadelphia Dentistry, our team of smile professionals can keep your teeth top notch. In addition to cleanings and a plethora of other services, we value education. Schedule an appointment to learn more about how to optimize your dental care. To make an appointment with us, give us a call at (215) 568-6222 or email info@phillydentistry.com. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!

Feeling comfortable with your dentist is so important. You’re trusting someone to take care of your health, therefore you should always feel confident in your doctor. There are so many factors that go into choosing the right dentist. Luckily, there are action steps you can take that will help you along the process. Let’s go through some of the basics when choosing a good dentist.

  1. What are your needs?

When finding a good dentist, you need to consider what your dental needs are. Why are you going to the dentist? Do you need annual cleanings? Are you interested in cosmetic dentistry? Do you have a dental emergency? The reasons are endless, but you need to determine your wants and needs. This will allow you to focus on finding dental offices that specialize in exactly what you are looking for. At Philadelphia Dentistry, we specialize in cosmetic dentistry, preventive dentistry, general dentistry, and restorative dentistry. We have all the bases covered!

  1. Ask people you trust for referrals.

Think about your friends, family, and co-workers. Who has a nice smile? The next time you are with them, ask them about their dentist. If they have all good things to say about their dental experiences, you are on the right track for finding your dentist. Our office offers “Care to Share” cards for all of our patients. These cards make it easy for our patients to share their experiences with us to all of their friends and family.

  1. Get a referral from your physician.

Ask your doctor or local pharmacist what dentist they would recommend. It is understood that these medical professionals have investigated all the dentists in the area. This means that they would be a good source for referrals.

  1. Check out online reviews.

Start by searching “dentists near me.” Once you do this, a huge list of dentists in the area will appear. Click on the review tabs and read through patient recommendations to hear about different experiences. This will help answer some questions you might have or even eliminate some potential offices off your list. Philadelphia Dentistry is rated 4.9 stars on Facebook, 4.8 stars on Google, 4 stars on Yelp. We take our patient’s reviews very seriously and always try to improve based on feedback.

  1. Surf their websites.

Checking out a dental office’s website will answer a lot of questions. Most websites include information about services, costs, insurance, etc. The best websites will even include video testimonials and before/after photos from real patients. Sometimes seeing the results of a dental office can help you make the best decision. You can see all of our results, information, and services here on our website.

veneers & whitening

Life is too short not to smile. So why wouldn’t you want to love your smile? During the entire month of September, take advantage of our awesome monthly special “Buy 6 Porcelain Veneers, and get FREE Air Pods!” Getting porcelain veneers is easier than you think. With only two visits to our office, you will be leaving with a perfect smile. As Philadelphia’s Premiere Dentists, we have done the highest amount of veneer procedures in the entire city. We’ve got you covered.

There are many benefits to getting veneers, but our favorite part about them is how easy the process is. If you have gapped, crooked, or stained teeth, veneers are the perfect fix. Veneers are also known for being strong. If you have weak teeth from damaged or old fillings, veneers can strengthen your teeth. Veneers are an almost instant makeover from your smile. You don’t have to wait months or years for results. All it takes is two visits!

So, what’s the catch? This all sounds too good to be true. There’s no catch. Porcelain veneers are fantastic and can last up to 25 years! With proper care, your veneers will stay looking perfect. They are so natural-looking and are resistant to chips and stains. Do you want to find out if veneers are right for you? Do you also want a FREE Air Pods?
