adc water challenge - costa mesa dentist - healthy living - healthy teeth habits - drinking water - healthy smile - best dentist in oc - family dentist costa mesa - dr jeremy jorgenson - advanced dental care

We’re all about promoting healthy habits for mind, body, and TEETH! And there are some relatively easy ways we can all do better for ourselves like eating more fruits and vegetables, brushing and flossing twice a day, going for a 30 minute walk three times a week, etc. But as simple as those things sound, it’s actually harder to commit than it seems.

So what’s one thing that we already do everyday and doing more of can make us healthier? DRINKING WATER!

Benefits of Drinking Water

Water is a great alternative to teeth-staining coffees and teas, sugary/acidic sodas and juices and keeps us hydrated. When our bodies are well hydrated we can perform much better as our body has the resources it needs to restore and repair itself. According to Harvard Health, drinking water helps our bodies by:

  • carrying nutrients and oxygen to your cells
  • flushing bacteria from your bladder
  • aiding digestion
  • preventing constipation
  • normalizing blood pressure
  • stabilizing the heartbeat
  • cushioning joints
  • protecting organs and tissues
  • regulating body temperature
  • maintaining electrolyte (sodium) balance

We’re making drinking water fun by challenging you, your family, friends, co-workers, anyone who can drink water – to participate in our ADC Water Challenge. It’s so easy! Read more to learn how you can Drink Water and Win.

Why You Don’t Have to Hate Going to the Dentist

Hate going to the dentist?

Concept phobia dentist, dentistry, instruments, hate going to the dentist, costa mesa dentist, dentist near me

For some people, going to the dentist is right up there with getting a colonoscopy, a prostate exam, a Pap smear (need I go on?). If you hate going to the dentist, take a deep breath, we’re here to help.

According to the Colgate website, “Dental anxiety and phobia are extremely common. It has been estimated that 9% to 15% of Americans avoid seeing the dentist because of anxiety and fear. That’s about 30 million to 40 million people. In a survey by the British Dental Health Foundation, 36% of those who didn’t see a dentist regularly said that fear was the main reason.”

Common Dental Fears:

  • Pain
  • Sound of Dental Tools
  • Needles
  • Embarrassment
  • Lack of Control

Sometimes patients hate going to the dentist as a result of one bad experience and sometimes it’s just a general fear.  The fear becomes a problem when patients avoid the dentist because of their fear.  Patients with dental phobia or dental fear who avoid the dentist often end up with painful, urgent dental conditions that require more serious treatment like fillings, dental crowns, root canals, extractions, etc.

Overcoming your Dental Fears

If you’re reading this and thinking, “I still hate going to the dentist”, than you’ve come to the right place. Whether you have a fear of needles or just the thought of a dental drill makes your skin crawl, we understand that the fear is real and we want you to know that we are here to help!

There’s no need to be ashamed or worried, we totally get it. We’ve heard it all and have been told how much dentists are disliked more times than we’d like to recount. That’s why we strive to make each and every visit to our Costa Mesa dental office as enjoyable as possible.

Gentle Dentistry in Costa Mesa

Great News! You no longer have to dread going to the dentist.  At Advanced Dental Care, we go the extra mile to ensure you have a positive, successful experience every time you visit us.  We pride ourselves on continual improvement to provide you with:
