Hello and welcome to my website.
I’m Cory Obrien, father of two and a dentist by profession, as you can already gather from the look of the website. I spend the entire day seeing dental problems and thinking to myself it shouldn’t have appeared in the first place.
It distresses me to my very core to see children walk into my clinic with severe toothaches which cannot ultimately be resolved without a root canal or removal. Children, even adults, shouldn’t go through all that pain when the situation can be avoided in the first place.
The problem with our community is that we are still unaware of what needs to be done to maintain our oral health. Maybe we just don’t bother to find out. And when it does strike us that our teeth need care, it’s only because of the pounding toothache. There will be no other option left at this point other than setting an appointment with the dentist.
I for one will never let it come to that, neither for myself or for the rest of the family. My wife, thankfully, is of the same opinion. She has set up the habit of brushing teeth in our boys from the time they started eating solids. Now, Noah is 4 years and Lucas is 6 years.
Lucas has voluntarily taken the responsibility to remind his little brother every time he goes to brush his own teeth, three times a day. Not only does he remind, but he also makes sure that Noah comes along and does what he’s told to. I find it so cute when he plays the big brother like that.
Oral hygiene isn’t simply about brushing teeth three times a day, that’s what I keep telling my family and my patients. Flossing, tongue scraping and using a mouthwash are all just as important as brushing. But most of us don’t find the time for them.
Believe it or not, all I’ve been wishing since the start of my career is to see fewer patients at my clinic. And I believe that it is possible, only if everyone knows what they’re supposed to use for their oral health and how to use these products.
With the idea of lowering the rate of dental problems, I decided I should start a blog where I would shove in all the useful knowledge of dentistry I have. Of course, I’ll put it in writing in a way that’s easy for everyone to understand, even for those who do not have a medical background.
You’ll find out what products you should be using and how best to use them so that no serious dental problem arises in the first place. If you’re as scared of a dental chair as most patients are, make sure you don’t have to sit in one. Take good care of your teeth. They deserve good treatment.
Thank you for visiting our website. I hope you find lots of useful stuff here.
