Here at New Dimension Dentistry, we offer patients full mouth restoration procedures that may help one achieve the smile that they’ve always dreamed of. After one undergoes full mouth surgery, it is important that they know just how careful to be with their new mouth. Here are some food tips that one should consider after their procedure.
- Before and after you eat, it is important to brush and rinse your teeth free of any debris leftover
- Soft foods are a must at first. You don’t want to risk breaking or completely removing any of the work just done on your mouth. Soft foods will be easier to take down, as you won’t be struggling to chew through all of your food.
- Once you transition into harder, more solid foods, make sure pieces are cut smaller than normal and that you take into consideration just how much pressure you want to be applying on your teeth.

Getting new dentures is an exciting event that happens to a multitude of individuals every day. The adjustment to a life with dentures may take a little time, and the process of eating will probably be the most difficult everyday challenge to overcome. Here are some tips you should follow to ensure a smoother transition into your life with new dentures.
- Start yourself off with a liquid diet. Items such as purees or soft foods, soups, and puddings are all included in this category.
- Watch out for food temperatures. As your new dentures come with an insulating quality, you won’t be able to measure how hot something actually is.
- Don’t worry about your sense of taste. It will come back eventually.
- Start slowly with solid foods, careful not to chew large pieces of food at a time.
Start out slow with your new eating habits, as unnecessary roughness may result in a crack or loosen your dentures altogether.

Have you ever noticed that your gums may come up a little bit different on each side? Uneven gums are caused by a multitude of factors such as genetics, other health issues, or taking prescription drugs. If you notice that your gums are too high, you may have something known as gum recession; in which gum tissues pulls back from a tooth and exposes its roots. Gum recession may also be an indicator of Periodontal Disease.
If you have these gum related issues, you should give Gum Contouring a try. Gum Contouring is a cosmetic procedure in which patients use to use to improve their overall appearance. Though it is not medically necessary, it does help the appearance of your teeth shift to an overall healthier outcome.
If you decide to pursue the cosmetic procedure, here’s what to expect. The surgery is performed in a dentist’s office. Using scalpels, lasers, and radiosurgery, the dentist reshapes your natural gum lines. After surgery, you should limit your activities. Your mouth will feel uncomfortable and your gum will feel sensitive and so eating soft foods and over the counter pain reliever will help you recover more smoothly.

From a young age, oral health is an important factor in which will affect individuals for the rest of their lives. Baby teeth are the start to an adolescent’s foundation for oral health. What many don’t know is that babies are susceptible to cavities just as much as adults are. In fact, adults are one of the main reasons as to why babies have cavities.
These cavities are known as “Baby Bottle Tooth Decay.” This occurs in the upper front teeth; however it still may affect other teeth. One main cause of baby bottle tooth decay is too much exposure to drinks that contain sugar. This can also be passed down to a baby through their mothers! When a mother feeds her child and tastes food using the same spoon, that saliva may transfer bacteria into their children’s mouths.
In order to prevent this from happening, make sure to schedule a dentist appointment as soon as your child’s first tooth comes in.
