A word from our hygeinist, Carol, on Whitening
Many people ask us if whitening toothpastes are actually effective at making teeth whiter. Whitening toothpastes chemically or mechanically help to remove “extrinsic” stain on the surface. There is no evidence that they can whiten teeth that have “intrinsic” stain; discoloration inside the tooth. These whitening toothpastes do not change the pigment or remove color from the teeth like bleaching agents do.
The “whitening” agents in toothpastes are abrasives used to rub off stains from the tooth surface commonly caused by coffee, tea, tobacco, or red wine. These toothpastes also contain enzymes that break down the proteins in stains. Such as the tannins present in red wine, fruit juices and food products. If you desire a whiter smile; your dentist or hygienist can advise you on which whitening method would be best for you.
Dr. Oyangen is on the brink of something new
He is developing a new business, Capital District Sleeps, on Sleep Apnea

It will be at "Need More Sleep.com" and "Capital District Sleeps.com"
- Coming Soon!
