Raise Your Dental IQ

Raise Your Dental IQ

There are many simple things that the average Montecito area resident can do to raise their Dental IQ and improve their oral health. One simple lesson involves bacteria, and everyone’s mouth has a lot of it.

But, don’t worry, bacteria per se isn’t the problem. Dental problems occur for Santa Barbara patients when the balance of bacteria becomes unhealthy. This is where brushing and flushing come into play. Another precaution you can take to guard against the wrong kind of bacteria is to keep your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible, and close the lid of the toilet before you flush.

Make sure to wash your hands before you brush and floss. No exceptions!

When it comes to a good toothbrush, don’t get sentimental. The American Dental Association recommends replacing your toothbrush every three to four months. If you can avoid the unhealthy balance of bacteria in your mouth, you can avoid gum disease, tooth decay, as well as bad breath.

If you can avoid decay, it’s less likely that you will need more extensive dental work such as Goleta dental implants and crowns.

I’m Dr. Jon King and I am passionate about helping my patients have healthy teeth and beautiful smiles.

Testimonials
  • Dr. Jim, Dr. Jon, and Peggy: I can’t tell you how happy Mother Mary is with her new smile. It was the best 88th birthday present she could have received. Not only does she now smile fully (hasn’t done that for as long as I can remember), but she looks ten years younger and says she feels at least ten years younger. She is one happy camper, and you guys are the absolute best. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
    —Susan B.
  • I am having Dr. Jon King take out old fillings and replace them with new white ones. He is fast, friendly and really funny. I am an adult, but am seriously glad that he's a dad. His attitude towards his patients is kind and caring. I actually was laughing so hard today that I had to sit up in the middle of two replacement fillings. Even with the laughing and silliness I was out of there in an hour.
    —Cheryl G.
  • I have been going to King Dental for about 3 years now and I am so happy! They are so passionate and kind, and I always look forward to my appointments. Can't say enough good things about them!
