Let Your Kids Fight The Evil Cavity-Causing Sorceress

children

Your child’s smartphone or tablet could be another essential tool to help them establish effective dental hygiene habits. A mobile app called Toothsavers was introduced in 2014 by a coalition of organizations dedicated to public health.

In the exciting Toothsavers game (designed for ages 3 – 6) children try to save characters from an evil sorceress who inflicts cavities and other detrimental mouth miseries on residents of her kingdom. Players use their fingers to ‘clean’ the characters’ teeth in the game. The game is designed to encourage children to brush correctly for two minutes, two times a day and create awareness in young children of the importance of proper oral hygiene.

Toothsavers was created by the American Dental Association and Ad Council in partnership with 35 other organizations.

“Mobile technology plays a major role in influencing young people’s behavior and is a great fit for this campaign. We’re thrilled to release our first mobile game, which represents our ongoing efforts to use technology to promote health, education and well-being. We look forward to using this app to help kids maintain healthy oral health habits, and have fun while doing it!Peggy Conlon, president and CEO of the Ad Council. 1

The game allows kids to time and track their toothbrushing and even triggers alerts to remind users when it’s time to brush. As part of the game, users watch fun, two-minute instructional videos while they brush their teeth in the real world. A new character is unlocked each day a player watches a video while brushing morning and night. The free app can be downloaded at the App Store, Google Play, and at http://2min2x.org/.

In addition to proper toothbrushing, establishing a relationship with a trusted family dentist is essential for keeping kid’s smiles healthy. If you are looking for a friendly and gentle family dentist in the La Mesa area, we invite you to schedule a consultation. We can advise you on dental issues relevant to our youngest patients including thumb-sucking, sealants, mouth protection for children’s sports, orthodontia, and fluoride supplementation.

5 Smile Makeover Questions For La Mesa

5 Cosmetic Dentistry Questions for La Mesa

If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are four considerations:

All At Once Or Over Time?
At Jeff Gray DDS, our La Mesa smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. Jeff Gray develops a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation.

Oral Sedation?
Many San Diego and La Mesa cosmetic dental patients benefit from sedation or ‘sleep’ dentistry. Conscious sedation is especially helpful for procedures such as multiple wisdom teeth extractions and dental implant placement.

Cost?
We know that cosmetic dentistry is a substantial investment for most San Diego folks. Some procedures are covered by dental plans, so if you have dental insurance, be sure to find out exactly what is covered. Many La Mesa residents use flex spending accounts for dental work and reap the tax advantages. Call us at (619) 337-7700 to discuss dental financing options in La Mesa.

Healing Time?
With the latest materials and cosmetic dental techniques, healing times are often minimal. However, some treatments such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, root canals, and dental implants often require a short healing period. Consider how the timing of your dental visits and the associated healing periods will affect your job and family responsibilities.

Aesthetic Results?
At Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa our patients experience terrific results when doing smile transformations in phases, however, porcelain restorations are best fabricated in the same “batch” for the most precise color matching.

Call Jeff Gray DDS today at (619) 337-7700 to schedule a no-pressure cosmetic dental consultation.


Have You Thanked Your Dental Assistant Lately, La Mesa?

La Mesa Extreme Smile Makeover

Your San Diego dental practice would be a very different place if it weren’t for the competent dental assistants who work there. Today in the La Mesa, California dental blog we would like to highlight the importance of these hard workers who are often taken for granted.

La Mesa dental assistants make your dental appointment much more effective, efficient, and safe. You, the patient, are prepared for treatment by dental assistants and, during procedures (such as filling cavities or teeth whitening) the assistants speed things along by passing instruments, holding devices, and recording information.

Most La Mesa cosmetic dental patients would agree that anyone who helps to shorten their time in the dental chair is a person who deserves thanks!

Keeping the dental office clean and sterilizing instruments are other indispensable responsibilities taken on by dental assistants. What would we do without them?

My name is Jeff Gray. I am a cosmetic dentist who has been serving the San Diego area since 1986. The dental assistants at my practice, Jeff Gray DDS in La Mesa, are world-class, along with the rest of our friendly and professional staff.

If you are looking for dental care in La Mesa, San Diego, La Mesa, or San Diego, please give us a call at 619-717-8560. We can discuss your dental care needs as well as any cosmetic dentistry procedures you might be interested in, such as veneers, dental implants, gum contouring, or an extreme smile makeover.

An Air-dried Toothbrush Is A Healthy Toothbrush, La Mesa

Your La Mesa Cosmetic Dentist & Toothbrushing Tips

Today in our La Mesa dental blog we will highlight some of the simple things you can do with your toothbrush to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible.

One of the most important habits San Diego residents can form is to always allow their toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. The best way to let the toothbrush air dry is by placing it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This method of storage is much better than sticking it away in a drawer since it’s unlikely to dry there.

Also, when you travel away from the La Mesa or San Diego area, make sure your toothbrush is dry before you seal it away in a travel container.

A good strategy for La Mesa residents to make sure their toothbrush has ample time to dry is to buy two toothbrushes at your local drugstore. Then alternate between the two so each has time to fully dry out between uses.

And San Diego dental patients should remember to replace their toothbrush (or toothbrushes) every 3-4 months, or after they’ve had a cold!

Hi. I’m Dr. Jeff Gray, a general and cosmetic dentist in La Mesa, and I want my patients to have the best oral health possible. At Jeff Gray DDS we offer the following services:

We are currently accepting new San Diego patients and the friendly and professional staff here would be happy to answer any questions you have about teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, or other cosmetic dentistry procedures.


Don't Like Your Teeth? 5 Great Reasons To Get A Smile Makeover!

Reasons To Visit Your San Diego Cosmetic Dentist

Hello San Diego! When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see? If the answer is, ‘Not really,’ then you may want to consider these 5 reasons for people in San Diego to make some small improvements or undergo a complete smile re-design.

5. A little goes a long way. Some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as teeth whitening and tooth-colored fillings are simple but have dramatic results.

4. It’s more affordable than you think. Speak with your La Mesa, or San Diego cosmetic dentist and I am willing to bet that you’ll be surprised at the prices (in a good way!).

3. Your dentist will keep you comfortable. Many people worry that the procedures are painful, but dentists in the San Diego area can help you stay relaxed and free from discomfort whether you’re getting tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, veneers, or a complete smile makeover. Ask your dentist about oral sedation.

2. You will look and feel younger!

1. Regardless of your dental problems, chances are, your dentist can help you. Some San Diego residents believe they have to live with stained, chipped, cracked, crooked, or missing teeth, but today’s dentists have the tools and procedures to fix all of these dental problems and more.

If you are in the San Diego area and are looking for a dentist, I would love to serve you. My name is Dr. Jeff Gray. I have been practicing quality dentistry in La Mesa, California since 1986. Please call 619-717-8560 for an appointment.

Brush Up On Your Cavity Basics, San Diego

Laser Dentistry Finds Cavities For San Diego Patients

Residents of San Diego and La Mesa use the word ‘cavity’ often when discussing oral health practices. Along with teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures, cavities are a hot topic.

At Jeff Gray DDS we think it’s great that people in the San Diego area are so conscious of their teeth, and we feel that having a greater understanding of exactly what a cavity is will help them take better care of their pearly whites.

Cavities can also be called caries or tooth decay. When a tooth is permanently damaged in the hard surface, tiny openings occur. These little holes are cavities. Different factors that contribute to tooth decay are:

Frequent eating
Consuming sugary beverages
Oral bacteria
Insufficient tooth brushing and flossing

Cavities may get so bad that you will see pits or holes in your teeth, but symptoms may be more subtle, such as sensitivity, pain when biting, or a toothache. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should call your La Mesa, or San Diego cosmetic dentist today for an appointment.

If you are in the market for quality dental care in the La Mesa area, give Jeff Gray DDS a call. We have been treating dental patients in and around San Diego since 1986. We can also answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers and dental implants.

We hope to hear from you soon!

The Jeff Gray DDS Guide To Dry Mouth

Fresh Breath In La Mesa

Many folks in our La Mesa community experience dry mouth occasionally. Some develop dry mouth in social situations or when they are under a lot of stress. Sporadic or infrequent dry mouth is usually not a problem. Constant dry mouth, or xerostomia, is not only irritating, it can lead to severe health problems.

La Mesa area people should not take their saliva for granted. Your saliva plays a very important role in maintaining your health. One of its roles is to help digest your food. The moment food enters your mouth, saliva starts breaking it down so your body can metabolize it. If you don’t produce enough saliva to perform this task your body may not be getting important nutrients needed to stay healthy.

Saliva also functions as a disinfectant by cleansing the mouth of leftover food, bacteria, and fungi.
This helps prevent tooth decay, bad breath and infections. Many La Mesa residents don’t realize that many of the foods we eat are very acidic and our saliva helps counteract those acids in our mouths.

I am Dr. Jeff Gray and my staff and I at Jeff Gray DDS have been treating xerostomia since 1986. I recommend cutting back on caffeine in such drinks as cola, coffee, and tea. Not only do these beverages stain and discolor your teeth, the caffeine can contribute to dry mouth. I also recommend drinking water throughout the day to make sure you are adequately hydrated.

Tobacco and alcohol can also contribute to dry mouth. Consult your San Diego physician if you are taking medication that is causing your dry mouth.

Dry mouth is not a natural part of aging, so call Jeff Gray DDS today and schedule an appointment if your dry mouth is getting worse as you grow older.
