  • Just Toothpaste

    What's in toothpaste?At social gatherings, after exchanging the usual “so what do you do” answers, I am often then asked which toothpaste is the best.  I usually mutter something about fluoride and the ADA Seal of Approval, and then move the conversation to more important issues, like did the Mets win or not.  It’s not that I don’t want to say what I think of some gigantic corporate manufacturer, it’s just that I don’t care all that much about their toothpaste.  I do care about healthy teeth and gums, but the big secret is that toothpaste is, in most cases, very overrated.

    I know, I know, I too have seen the constant barrage of toothpaste ads. The right toothpaste, we are told, will prevent cavities, arrest cavities, whiten teeth, freshen breath, create instant sex appeal, prevent gingivitis, form a protective shield of some sort, and make the gums 65% stronger (whatever that even means). So I should start by asking, what is toothpaste really supposed to do?

  • When Acid Attacks - Part I

    Acidic FruitDentistry has had a lot of success stories in the past few decades. But, also a few failures.

    One of the biggest areas of concern is the steady increase in the effects of acids. Acids can lead to the wearing away of tooth enamel and loss of gum attachment.

    A truly complete discussion of acids and oral health is way beyond the scope of this blog article. I’ll include some references at the end of Part II if you wish to do more reading on the subject (but no, you won’t get extra credit nor have your grade adjusted).

    There are several types of damage to teeth and gums that we often see:

happy patients

I started coming to Dr. Miller in the late 1980s after not going to a dental office for 4 years. It was difficult going back after such a long time. The staff all were so professional and trusting that they put me at ease.

Over the years I have had a number of elective procedures done. All have worked out so well. I am thankful for Dr. Miller's honest evaluation of what needs to be done now and what we can wait to do.

A job change took me away from the Syracuse area, but I thought so highly of the practice that I am still a patient to this day.

Quality dental work you can trust is worth it!
