February 24th may not seem like a significant date for your dental health, but let us explain; February 24th is National Tortilla Chip Day. Everyone loves a good tortilla chip but did you know that they and other foods could have negative effects on your dental health? Besides the buildup that can occur from eating salty foods, abrasive and sharp foods such as tortilla chips can cause a variety of problems for your teeth and gums.


The Damage Food Can Cause

We have all had those experiences of getting food stuck in our gums. Sharp tortilla chip particles can be especially pesky. If you get food in between your teeth it can cause buildup of harmful bacteria and tartar. This can lead to serious dental problems including gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis. If you are concerned about buildup or inflamed gums, consider laser dentistry in Henderson, NV as your solution.

What Is Laser Dentistry?

Laser dentistry is a less invasive and more precise way of performing several dental procedures. The benefits of using a laser during dental procedures, including laser gum surgery, are numerous:

  • Minimized pain and bleeding
  • Often does not require shots, anesthesia, or stitches
  • Precise and causes less damage to surrounding tissue
  • Faster recovery

Many people who experience anxiety during dental procedures find that laser dentistry in Henderson, NV is a much more calming experience. With a laser there is less noise, heat, and vibration than with a traditional dental drill.
