Men's Dental Health
Studies have shown that men's dental health declines faster than that of their female counter parts. With higher rates of gum disease, tooth loss, and infections, men seem to need all the help they can get when it comes to their dental health. The good news is that most of these conditions are preventable with the proper care and preventative measures.
The following is a list of issues that men have with dental health and how to prevent them:
Regular Dental Visits
According to the Academy of General Dentistry, men go to the dentist less often than women. Often men will put off going to the dentist until they have a dental emergency. The sad fact is that if you follow though with regular dental check ups, the price you pay in money and health is far less than if you wait till you have an issue. Just think of it as getting regular oil changes for your car, because you know if you don't your car won't last long!
Brushing & Flossing Daily
Research done by the American Dental Association found that men brush less frequently than women. They are also less likely to brush after every meal. Failure to brush and floss daily will eventually lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and worsening overall health due to infection and inflammation caused by bacteria in plaque. The dentist tells you to brush and floss daily at the end of every dental appointment for a reason.
Most people don't realize that what your eating can have a major affect on your teeth and gums. Proper education is crucial in understanding what foods and drinks are detrimental or beneficial to your oral health. Foods that are high in calcium, antioxidants, nutrients and minerals are a good place to start. Foods like cheese, sugar-free yogurt, leafy greens, almonds, fish, red meat, raisins, berries, and tea, are all high in nutrients, proteins, and mineral that have a beneficial affect on your mouth's biome and pH balance. Foods that are high in sugars and acids such as deserts, sugary drinks, and processed foods are the ones you want to avoid.
Men also loose more teeth faster in life than women. In addition to lack of brushing, flossing, and dental visits, men are more likely to have a tooth fall out due to trauma. Proper prevention, such as using a mouth guard when playing sports, is the key to keeping your teeth for longer amounts of time. Missing teeth can often cause the deterioration and recession of the jaw bone. Missing teeth also lead to poorer health from the lack of being able to chew healthy foods such as leafy greens and meats. Dyer Dental Care offers a full range of Cosmetic Dentistry such as Dental Implants, and Dentures.

Thinking about getting your teeth straightened in El Paso, TX? Maybe your child's overbite has you concerned. Choosing the right orthodontist for yourself or a family member can be a complex decision. There are a few things to consider before delving into the world of orthodontics. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions that will help you make the best decision.
Do I Need Braces?
The initial consultation with the orthodontist is typically a visual evaluation of the patient’s teeth and facial structure, with discussion about treatment to follow. Afterwards, if it's decided that treatment is the next option, diagnostic X-rays, photographs of teeth, and a model of the patients teeth are then used by the orthodontist to evaluate and formulate a treatment plan that works for you. For children, the earliest recommended orthodontic consultation is at 7 years of age.
If you think you or a loved one might need braces, there are certain questions you should ask yourself.
Dyer Dental Care offers a FREE ORTHODONTIC CONSULTATION to all of our patients. Our staff will help you make the right orthodontic decision here in our El Paso dental office.
Invisalign or Braces?
There are pros and cons to consider for both braces and Invisalign. For the most part, the outcomes are the same, but the treatments are very different. Below are the pros and cons of Invisalign and braces:
For some people the choice is clear, for others the choice is more complex. Here at Dyer Dental Care in Northeast El Paso, we aim to assist you in making this decision with a Free Invisalign Consultation.
Who Is The Best Orthodontist For Me?
Interviewing orthodontists over the phone is always a good place to start finding the right one. Is the front desk staff friendly, professional, and able to answer all of your questions? Have you had a family member get braces or Invisalign in the past that could suggest an Orthodontist? How easy is it to make an appointment? Whether a practice is right for you has a lot to do with the efficiency of the staff, personality of the orthodontist and if you feel taken care of while at the dental office.
Orthodontic Cost & Pricing
Costs for orthodontic work varies by doctor and region, and can even vary from neighborhood to neighborhood. Make sure you're not paying for flash of a video game arcade and jungle gym. Remember, more expensive doesn’t always mean better. Some offices such as Dyer Dental Care also offer a Free Orthodontic Consultation.

What is Pediatric Dentistry?
Pediatric Dentistry is dental care and treatment of children and adolescence. Pediatric dentists have the education, experience, qualifications, and patience to care for children’s oral health throughout the many stages of a child's life.
Pediatric Dentists go through 4 years of dental school, and an additional 2 years of residency training for infants, children, teens, and children with special needs. According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, more than 50% of children will be affected by tooth decay before the age of five. It is therefore important to have your children visit the dentist for regular 6 month check ups to make sure they are not suffering from periodontal disease or tooth decay.
Starting Oral Hygiene Early
The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children see a dentist by their first birthday which gives the dentist a chance to look for early problems with your child’s teeth. The child should see the dentist within 6 months of the first tooth erupting. Pediatric dentists will provide you with information about proper oral hygiene of your child.
Proper oral care should start before the first tooth erupts. You should know how to maintain your child's oral health from birth. Keep your baby’s mouth healthy by wiping the gums with clean and damp cloth from birth until the child’s first year when a dental check up will then be necessary.
Help keep your child’s teeth healthy by implementing the 2-2-2 rule. This means visiting the dentist 2 times a year, and brushing and flossing 2 times a day for 2 whole minutes! Let children help choose their own toothbrush and tooth paste to get them excited about brushing their teeth. They can pick the one that has a favorite color or character and their favorite flavor.
Visiting the dentist from a young age will help your child be more comfortable with the dentist you choose. It also establishes the good habit of regular dental checkups every 6 months. Everyone should see the dentist at least twice a year.
How to Find a Good Pediatric Dentist
Your your child's medical pediatrician can help you find a pediatric dentist near your home, work, our school. Many general & family dentists such as Dyer Dental Care enjoy treating children and are comfortable providing their dental care.
Once you've gotten the name of a dentist you want to try, meeting them in person and seeing the office can help you determine if they are the right fit for your child. Consider these questions from the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Will They Need Their Wisdom Teeth Removed?
Wisdom teeth are the final and trickiest teeth to come in. To determine if you or a loved one's wisdom teeth need removing takes an expert dentist trained in oral surgery. For some, there is plenty of room in the mouth and wisdom teeth come in with only a small amount of discomfort. However, wisdom teeth can also be impacted and place kids at risk for bacterial infections and decay, so make sure to discuss this with their dentist.
