3 Ways to Protect Your Oral Health From Home

Oral Health Roswell GA

While your dental office may be closed for routine visits during this unprecedented time in our nation, that doesn’t mean your dental health can or should take a backseat. In fact, caring your smile always starts at home. Despite the drastic disruption in your schedule and daily routine, there are still ways to not only protect your dental health from home but also improve it!

#1 Tend to Your Toothbrush.
Your toothbrush is your most powerful weapon against dental health issues like cavities, gum disease and more. How well are you taking care of your toothbrush? If it looks frayed or you’ve been using it for longer than 3 months, you’ll need to replace it. Store your toothbrush upright and at least six feet away from the toilet. Avoid sharing your toothbrush with family members or even storing it in the same container as a child, sibling or spouse. Keeping your toothbrush free of germs is paramount for a healthy and clean mouth!

#2 Drink Water Often.
Your entire body needs water to survive and function. However, H20 is especially beneficial to your teeth and gums. Water keeps your mouth moist, but it also rinses away food debris, sugars and acids that are harmful for your smile. In turn, drinking water frequently throughout the day can help you avoid cavities, bad breath, tooth stains and gum disease!

#3 Be Smart with Snacking.
If you’ve visited the pantry or refrigerator more times than usual during the past few weeks, you are certainly not alone. However, don’t let your homebound snacking habits ruin your smile. As much as possible, stay away from snacks that are sticky, sugary or acidic, as these can wreak havoc on your tooth enamel over time and invite decay. Consider some tasty snacks that are not only safe for your smile but also known to protect your teeth, such as cheese, plain yogurt and raw veggies.

At the office of Dr. Mitzi Morris, we know that it is impossible to prevent all dental problems. When you or your family suffers from unexpected tooth pain or a mouth-related accident, please do not hesitate to call our office. We are always here to treat your dental emergencies while doing our best to help you keep a healthy smile from home.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
