Relax In Comfort And Style At Salt Lake Dental Care In Murray

Draper cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Thank you for visiting the Salt Lake Dental Care dental blog. Today, I’d like to discuss an important but often-overlooked feature in our practice: the modern dental chair. Did you know that dental chairs don’t come from your local Murray furniture store?

Dental chairs were developed especially for the comfort of patient and dental provider alike. Dentists throughout the known world are pleased with the recent innovations in seat technology.

Clint Blackwood DDS at Salt Lake Dental Care has been leaning over patients since 2005. The adjustable seat has saved Dr. Blackwood from discomfort as services are rendered such as porcelain veneers and Invisalign.

Murray patients have been lying back in Salt Lake Dental Care’s state-of-the art seats since 2005. The cushioned comfort has pampered our Draper, Sandy, and Taylorsville patients while allowing Clint Blackwood to comfortably perform critical procedures like sedation dentistry, teeth whitening, or wisdom teeth removal. Hurray for technology!

Visit our office at 279 E 5900 S Ste 202 Murray, Utah 84107 and enjoy a spectacular view of our ceiling from any one of our exceptional dental chairs. Most Utah dental practices have them and there is probably not much of a difference between theirs and ours. What sets us apart is our personal service, professionalism, experience and competitive pricing. With all the overhead that has to be paid for: x-ray equipment, procedure supplies, utilities and, of course, our remarkable chairs, we’re pleased to keep the price of preventative and cosmetic dentistry reasonable for our friends and neighbors in Murray, Utah.

Call our office today at 801-938-8855 to find out if dental restoration, braces, crowns, veneers, tooth implants, sedation, teeth whitening, or any cosmetic dental procedure is something we can provide for you.

We are proud to offer general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and dental implants in a comfortable position, in a comfortable chair.

Dental Sealants – Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Sandy

Dental Sealants - Another Tool For Cavity Prevention In Sandy

Dental patients in the Sandy, Taylorsville, and Draper areas know that regular brushing and flossing are essential for optimal oral health. However, the bristles of your toothbrush can’t reach into every small groove and depression in your teeth, especially the really bumpy back teeth. That’s where sealants can be invaluable.

Dental sealants are a plastic material that is applied by your Salt Lake City dentist. This material is a resin that bonds to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, mainly in the pits and fissures. The plastic acts as a shield against acids and plaque that can damage the enamel.

Many Murray residents might think that sealants are only for children and teenagers, but they can actually be beneficial for adults as well. If you are wondering if sealants are right for you, speak with your Sandy, Taylorsville, or Murray dentist. This simple dental procedure can improve your oral health by protecting the surfaces that are particularly vulnerable to decay.

Many Utah dental insurance providers include dental sealants as a covered benefit, so check with your provider if you are considering them. If you don’t have dental insurance, ask us about financing options. Because they can prevent cavities, dental sealants can save you money in the long run.

I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood, an experienced Murray dentist. Thank you for visiting my dental blog. At our office we serve the Salt Lake City area by offering:

Wisdom teeth removal
Sedation dentistry
Porcelain veneers
Teeth whitening

If you have any questions about these or other cosmetic dental procedures, call us today at 801-938-8855 to schedule a consultation.  Our high-quality staff would be happy to assist you.

Pregnancy And Oral Health In Murray

In today’s Salt Lake Dental Care blog we will discuss how pregnancy impacts your dental health. I am Dr. Clint Blackwood and I want all Utah expectant mothers to realize the importance of good oral hygiene during pregnancy. Because of the changes going on in a pregnant woman’s body there are potential dental health issues that may arise.

Many Murray women experience morning sickness accompanied with vomiting. The gastric acid increases the acidity in the mouth which can easily lead to enamel loss and tooth decay. Heightened levels of progesterone and estrogen may relax the ligaments that support the teeth causing them to loosen.

Most Murray residents have experienced gingivitis, but during pregnancy the hormonal changes increase your risk for gingivitis. Without proper dental care gingivitis can lead to gum disease.

If you are a pregnant Utah woman my staff and I at Salt Lake Dental Care recommend using a soft bristled toothbrush for daily brushing. Floss carefully and rinse your mouth with a fluoride wash. If you experience morning sickness, clean your mouth with a baking soda and water mixture.

If you are planning to become pregnant, it is a good idea to have a cleaning and exam prior to your pregnancy. If you need any dental procedures, it is a good idea to get them done as soon as possible. If you experience any dental problems during your pregnancy please call and schedule an appointment at 801-938-8855. Untreated dental disease can effect your overall health.

At Salt Lake Dental Care we not only offer excellent dental care to our pregnant clients, we provide quality preventative care and wisdom teeth removal for the entire family. Our Murray patients can expect professional general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry.

5 Tips For Sandy Residents With Mouth Sores

Come See Your Sandy Utah Cosmetic Dentist For Those Mouth Sores

Hi, I’m Dr. Clint Blackwood. When my Murray and Salt Lake City area patients get mouth sores, I advise them to evaluate what they’re eating and make some changes. By following these tips, you too can avoid the discomfort of eating and help to increase the speed of healing.

1. Eat soft or pureed foods. Don’t worry, you won’t have to eat baby food, plenty of adult dishes fit the bill, such as:

cream soups
hot cereal
mashed potatoes

2. Keep your meals bland for a while. I know it’s no fun, but watch out for overly spicy, tart, salty or acidic foods while you have a mouth sore.

3. Also, keep it cool. Eat only food that is at room temperature or is served chilled.

4. Use a straw so that whatever you are drinking can bypass the mouth sore altogether.

5. Try to moisten dry foods. This can be done by adding sauces, dressings, and gravies to your meals. Yum!

I hope that these suggestions will help you the next time you suffer from a mouth sore. If you are looking for a dentist in the Salt Lake City area, consider my practice, Salt Lake Dental Care. We have been serving Murray since 2005. Call us at 801-938-8855 to schedule and examination and consultation. We offer a complete menu of general and cosmetic dental procedures including:

Water Fluoridation In Utah Prevents Tooth Decay

Utah Family Dentists Recommend Flouride To Prevent Tooth Decay

Hello! Welcome to our Murray family dentistry blog. Today’s message from Salt Lake Dental Care concerns fluoride and Utah children’s dental health. I’m Clint Blackwood and I have been practicing dentistry in Murray since 2005.

When I examine a new Murray patient for the first time, I can usually tell whether the person drank fluoride-adjusted municipal water while growing up. Generally, their teeth are healthier than Salt Lake City people who had lower fluoride levels in their tap water.

Ideally, adequate fluoride intake combined with proper oral hygiene, good nutrition, and regular dental visits keep teeth healthy and free of decay. However, fluoride also helps teeth remineralize if acids have already compromised the enamel. For decay prevention and tooth strengthening, adequate fluoride is indispensable.

If you have children and your Utah municipal water supply does not have the recommended level of fluoride, you may want to consider giving your kids a fluoride supplement. The fluoride will strengthen the primary teeth that have already erupted and also the adult teeth that are forming.

The American Dental Association supports water fluoridation:

‘More than 65 years ago, on January 25, 1945, Grand Rapids, Michigan became the world’s first city to adjust the level of fluoride in its water supply. Since that time, fluoridation has dramatically improved the oral health of tens of millions of Americans. Community water fluoridation is the single most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay.’

At Salt Lake Dental Care, we provide exceptional dental care for all members of the family including general and cosmetic dentistry. We serve the Sandy , Salt Lake City, and Murray UT areas. Ask us about teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and short-term braces.

If you are interested in children’s fluoride supplements, call Salt Lake Dental Care at 801-938-8855 to schedule a pediatric dental evaluation.

Salt Lake Dental Care Sealants Prevent Cavities For Murray Kids

Salt Lake City Family Dentist Your child’s first dental exam at Salt Lake Dental Care should occur when the first teeth are in, usually between six months and one year of age. During your child’s first check up at our Murray office, we will tell you about sealants, a clear layer of plastic applied to the grooved surfaces of the teeth.

Sealants protect the teeth and prevent cavities by filling in the crevasses where food particles can get caught. They are especially effective in the back teeth where most cavities are found.

The application process takes only one short visit at Salt Lake Dental Care. The teeth are cleaned, dried, and then liquid sealant is applied to teeth and hardened: it’s quick and painless. Your child will be able to eat right after the appointment.

Sealants are covered by most Utah dental insurance plans. For Salt Lake City parents who pay out-of-pocket, sealants are still cost-effective considering the cavities and future visits that can be avoided. Some Utah dental insurance plans have age limitations for sealants. Check your policy if you are unsure of the qualifications. Salt Lake Dental Care recommends having sealants applied as early as possible.

If properly cared for, Salt Lake Dental Care sealants can last for many years, protecting your child during the most cavity-prone ages.

Diligent oral hygiene and refraining from biting into hard objects will help the sealants last longer. Clint Blackwood will check the sealants during routine dental visits and recommend re-application or repair if necessary.

Sealants, brushing and flossing, a balanced diet, and twice-yearly Salt Lake Dental Care dental visits are essential for pediatric dental health. For more information about sealants, contact Salt Lake Dental Care today.
