  • 1. Naperville Cosmetic Dentists Expert Dr. Chiann Gibson Crafts Oral Hygiene Strategies for Patients As a way to explain what happens when teeth decay, Naperville cosmetic dentists leader Dr. Chiann Gibson offers knowledge gained from years of experience in the field of dentistry. Naperville cosmetic dentists like Dr. Chiann Gibson embrace opportunities to share recommendations on how to maintain proper oral health. Q: When advising your patients on their oral hygiene needs, which specific topics do you tend to cover? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: I find that it’s important to discuss the major components of the mouth and how they may affect my patient’s oral health. Q: What’s a leading topic of conversation during your patients’ checkups and appointments? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: Although many of my patients fail to give much thought to their saliva, it is a prime protector for a person’s teeth and gums. My job is to explain why saliva is not something to be feared. Q: Why is saliva such a beneficial part of the mouth? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: Saliva keeps our mouths moist while washing away food particles so that acid does not erode the tooth enamel and contribute to tooth decay. Q: Besides saliva, what else would you talk about with your patients? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: Plaque is another component of oral health. A gooey and soft substance that clings to the surface of the tooth, plaque contains a number of bacteria as well as miniscule particles of food. Q: Why does plaque grow on our teeth? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: When bacteria become attached to the teeth, plaque grows and then begins to multiply. Q: How can I curb this growth and avoid a plaque attack? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: People who eat starches and sugary foods are more susceptible to a problem with plaque.
  • 2. Q: Are sweets and desserts the primary contributing factors in my diet? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: It may not simply be ice cream and candy that concern doctors and dentists. All foods with carbohydrates eventually break down into simple sugars. Q: What are some of the most common sugary foods that compromise oral hygiene habits? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: Prominent examples include candy, soft drinks, cakes and cookies. Also, along with baked goods and pastries, it would be wise to limit your consumption of breakfast cereals, potato chips, bananas, crackers and pretzels. Q: What could be the end result of eating these foods on a regular basis? Dr. Chiann Gibson: Bacteria located in the mouth transform these sugars into acids that may precipitate tooth decay. Q: Can I overcome these problems without dental intervention? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: At this stage, the tooth is often repaired by saliva that reduces the amount of acid. However, without proper saliva flow, there could be even greater trouble in the future. Q: What happens if the acid continues to wreak havoc on my teeth? Dr. Chiann Gibson, Naperville Cosmetic Dentists: Unfortunately, once the decay has broken through to the tooth enamel, the damage becomes permanent and a dental professional must fix the problem. As a for Naperville cosmetic dentists, Dr. Chiann Gibson understands that dental hygiene practices begin at home. Dr. Gibson empowers her patients to make better choices with their daily diets to avoid the uncomfortable symptoms associated with many dental conditions. Naperville cosmetic dentists pioneer Dr. Chiann Gibson was recently selected by a vote of her peers as the Vice President for the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD).
