American's Favorite Dairy Product

Ice CreamSince June is National Dairy Month, we should not let it go without mentioning American's favorite dairy product beside milk--ice cream. The average American consumer eats 21 pounds of ice cream per year. (Ice Cream keeps dentists and weight loss programs in business.) The most popular flavors, in no particular order are: 1) Butter Pecan 2) Chocolate 3) Strawberry 4) Vanilla 5) Chip Mint.

The Care and Feeding of a Toothbrush

Baby brushing teeth

There are regular toothbrushes, electric toothbrushes, and even toothbrushes that give little beeps when they think you have had enough. But they all have one thing in common—GERMS. We get two common questions in our dental office about germs on toothbrushes.

New Music

This guy is out.  Out of our office anyway.  We have always had problems getting just the right music into our office.  Almost everything we could get in was either a little too rocky for most of our patients or too much like elevator music.  With our addition, we got a new sound system and hit it just about right...we think.  Come on in and listen to our new music as you have your teeth cleaned and tell us what YOU think.

June is National Dairy Month!

Robthom Sue PaddyJune is National Dairy Month! Since the average American consumes almost 25 gallons of milk a year, and milk is so great for teeth, we at Inge Dental find it only fitting that we honor Robthom Sue Paddy. Robthom is the Holstein cow that produced the greatest amount of milk in one year than any other cow in the USA. 59,298 pounds if you can believe it! So congratulations Robthom!

Nobody Likes Pain

Pain Relief SignNo body likes pain. We dentists get to spend most of our time relieving or preventing pain. That's one reason dentistry is so much fun. There is one trick you may not be aware of. Both motrin (like Advil) and acetaminophen (like Tylenol) are good pain relievers in their own right.

Once a nerve begins to die, it is usually irreversible. It won’t bounce back. If left alone, the dead tissue forms an infection and develops puss. This is what is called an abscess.

Lt Col Inge

Most of us know that Memorial Day is about more than a day off with hot dogs and hamburgers. It's about honoring the men and women who have served our country in the military, many to the point of giving their lives.
