Valley Creek Family Dentistry Has A New Office and Location
Just over a year ago we learned that the building at 6949 Valley Creek Road was going to be torn down. Valley Creek Family Dentistry had been at this location for 25 years! We knew that it was time to update and move to a new location.
We decided it was very important for us to stay in the Woodbury area so that we could continue to see all of our wonderful patients.
We looked at several possible locations and knew that we wanted to try to stay fairly close to our old location.
Fortunately, while Dr. Ash was at her dental study club, she was told of a location that was available and vacant!
The best news was that it was still located on Valley Creek Road and we could keep our name, Valley Creek Family Dentistry!
Over the past 12 months we worked on an exciting new project.
In July we traveled to Ohio to the Midmark Dental headquarters where we designed and chose new top of the line equipment.
Construction began in October.
After a few bumps in the road with the construction process, we opened our “NEW” doors on February 1, 2017 at
9950 Valley Creek Rd. Ste #200 Woodbury, MN 55125.
We are settled in now and look forward to seeing our existing patients as well as many new patients from Woodbury and the surrounding areas!
Welcome to our new office and new location!
Tooth Enamel Erosion from Soda May be Irreversible
When it comes to your teeth, diet soda isn’t any better than regular soda.
Regardless of the type of soda, enough of it results in the erosion of the tooth enamel. In many cases, the damage can’t be turned back.
The amount of erosion cases from soda has risen drastically in the last 25 years. People drink gigantic amounts of soda, and erosion of the enamel is inevitable in many cases.
The average American now drinks 44 gal of soda each year, according to the National Soft Drink Association. The phosphoric and citric acid in the soda changes the pH balance in the mouth and eventually leads to tooth erosion when consumed in large quantities.
There are also many cases in which the teeth become more sensitive. The problem could alter what a person eats and drinks to prevent pain. There are even people with teeth so sensitive that their teeth hurt from the cold in the winter.
Many previous studies have indicated the correlation between soda consumption and enamel erosion or cavities.
The best measure to take is to avoid drinking soda. But if you like soda too much to give it up, limit it to meal time, don’t drink it throughout the day, brush your teeth later in the day (at the minimum, rinse with water), and chew sugarless gum or gum with xylitol.
