TMJ Expert Dr. Sid Solomon DDS


You should know by now that drinks like coffee or sugary sodas are terrible for your pearly whites. If you want to actually keep them white and in place, you need to carefully avoid drinks with high acid and sugar content, as well as dark drinks that will stain your teeth. So what does that leave you? What drinks can you still drink? Are there any drinks that are actually beneficial for your teeth?Straight From the Cow
Dairy drinks, especially milk but also yogurty drinks such as kefir, are great for your teeth. Not only do they have a ton of calcium which strengthens your bone, helping keep both your teeth and jaw strong, but it also protects against gum disease. In addition, the calcium can help fill in small cavities that have already started to form through a process called remineralization.dental healthAre You Drinking 64 Oz a Day?
Water is good for every part of your body, and your teeth are no exception. Drinking a glass of water is almost as good as brushing your teeth, as it can wash and rinse away acids and food particles that are in your mouth. In addition, water also helps boost the saliva levels in your mouth, which help do this naturally. Most tap water is also fluoridated, which means that your teeth are getting a double boost of nutrients from the water.

As long as you are staying away from sports waters or flavored waters, you can feel free to just replace your sodas or sugary juices with a glass of water. Your oral and general health will greatly improve.

Throw a Tea Party
While black tea can stain your tea if drunk in excess, it also helps boost immunity against cavities by suppressing harmful bacteria. And white and green tea act very much like water in rinsing your teeth and boosting saliva. Just be careful to not add sweeteners or harmful additives.

Giving In to Addiction
If you must drink soda, try to pick the option that has less sugar and acid. Natural root beer is often a great choice. To make things better, sip it through a straw, old-school style. This minimizes harmful contact with your teeth.

This is a great dental office. They greet you when you enter, and give you a status report on how soon you will be seen. They do thorough and professional work on you, so you are always satisfied with the results. And when you are finished, they are generous with their time planning your next visit, and answering any questions you might have. They also give fantastic advice on what you should be doing at home to maintain great dental health.

The costs are incredibly high, even with insurance. I would not go back and not refer anyone. I am going to try to be placed with a different primary care dentist.

He is very patient and kind when dealing with TMD. I also like his techniques he uses to get to the root of the issue and not just patch it up like many dentists I have dealt with before.
