Wine – Good for your Breath?

Recent studies have shown that drinking wine may protect teeth by destroying bacteria that cause cavities, halitosis (bad breath) and periodontitis. According to DailyMail.com  Studies suggests antioxidants in wine significantly prevent bacteria that cause plaque, cavities and periodontal disease from sticking to gums.

But what kind of wine is best?   Research shows that antioxidants in red wine are more effective against plaque-causing bacteria that sticks to gum tissue, and when the bacteria is destroyed, your breath will reflect it.  Tests revealed two red wine ingredients – caffeic acid and p-coumaric acid – stopped tooth destroying bacteria from contaminating the mouth. Also red wine contains polyphenols, which can also help protect against heart disease and cancer.

Over-drinking though doesn’t have the same healthy benefits.  You should limited your consumption to one to two glasses of wine per day since too much wine can cause damage to the enamel on your teeth.

So Cheers! And remember to call Brogdon Dental for your next dental appointment.

Is Invisalign for you?

Invisalign is a system that uses clear, removable aligners that will move your teeth over time to give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only.

According to invisalign.com here are some of the reasons you might want to consider using this treatment:

With weekly aligner changes, you’re on your way to the smile you want even faster.

SmartTrack® material and SmartForce® features are clinically proven to achieve 75% more predictable tooth movement.**

Aligners made from SmartTrack material are more comfortable, better fitting, and easier to put on and take off.***

Proprietary SmartForce features and SmartTrack material make Invisalign treatment effective for complex cases. With innovations like these, your doctor can move your teeth more precisely.

Invisalign clear aligners for teens contain compliance indicators that fade from blue to clear to help gauge wear time.

Brogdon Dental has experience with Invisalign and can help you with any questions you might have. Just give us a call.

Our Wonderful Patients

We love our wonderful patients, and apparently the feeling is mutual!  Here are a few of the kind words we have received…

Brogdon Dental you are the best! Thanks so much for the awesome gift and the wonderful report on my cleaning today – A beautiful smile is a happy smile!  -Tammie D.

I’ve been a patient here for nearly twenty years, and the wonderful staff has always been so friendly and thorough. Angela is my hygienist. She is kind-hearted and attentive, and she has always taken excellent care of my teeth. The office staff has always provided outstanding service, the best I have encountered at any doctor’s office. I’m a teacher and they even file my claims with HCDE for reimbursement. (That is a service that is not provided at my son’s dentist office, and while it may seem minor, it is very helpful for this busy teacher!) I expect to grow old with the folks at Brogdon Dental; I am very happy with their care. – Sally W.

I have been patient of Brogdon Dental for many years and have always received excellent care. The staff is very caring and go out of their way to be friendly. The practice has keep up on all the recent updates for dental care. I would recommend to anyone looking for dentist. – Robert D.

As always, a visit to Brogdon Dental is an experience not to be duplicated on a visit to any other dental office. The staff is ultra friendly and more than willing to make your visit a pleasant one. In all this time, I have had numerous dental procedures done, and I have never had one moment of pain or discomfort. My family and I have been patients of Dr. Joseph Brogdon, Sr., and now of Dr. Joe Brodgon, Jr, and Dr. Josh McKinney now, more than 35 years, and cannot say enough about their treatment and service. If you want a good dentist, with no pain and no hassle, I recommend them 100%. – Sally S.

I’ve been going to Brogdon dental for years now and would never go anywhere else. They are so gentle and kind! I take my daughter there and she has no fear of the dentist thanks to them. The office staff knows your name and I look forward to my dental visits!  – Torri H.

Come in and see us in 2018 and join these patients who highly recommend our services and our staff.  We look forward to seeing you!
