    The Dangers of Smokeless Tobacco

    Last updated 3 days ago

    Smokeless tobacco poses some of the same threats to your oral health as cigarettes do. Repetitively using this kind of tobacco irritates the gums, which can cause the tissue to recede. Once the tooth roots are exposed, you are at a higher risk for gum disease, tooth decay, and sensitivity to hot and cold.

    One of the most dangerous side effects of using smokeless tobacco, though, is an increased risk for oral cancer. Check out this video to learn more about what tobacco can do to your teeth and gums.

    The dentists at Hudec Dental can check for signs of oral health issues during your next appointment. From cavities to oral cancer, we are here to help you avoid major health issues so you can maintain a beautiful smile.

    Foods to Avoid for Better Oral Health

    Last updated 9 days ago

    When it comes to your oral health, prevention is the best way to maintain healthy teeth and gums. The foods you eat have a big effect on the condition of your mouth. Try to avoid the following foods to improve your oral health and decrease your risk for cavities, decay, and periodontal disease:

    Sugary Drinks

    Sugar is terrible for your teeth. When you drink beverages that are high in sugar like soda and juice, the sugar coats your teeth. If you do not clean it off, it can mix with bacteria that already exist in your mouth and eventually cause major problems. If you want to reduce your risk for cavities, you should try to limit the amount of sugary beverages you drink. If you do have one, drink some water after to clear out your mouth before the sugar and bacteria can join forces.


    You might not think that ice is bad for your teeth, but chewing it can drastically increase your chances of a dental emergency. The more you chew on ice, the likelier it is that you will chip or break a tooth and need to take an emergency visit to your dentist.


    Although citrus fruits like oranges are considered healthy, they might damage your teeth. Acid from citrus food wears down your enamel, which weakens your teeth. You should drink water after eating or drinking citrus flavors to save your enamel and keep your teeth strong.


    Since alcohol leads to dehydration, drinking it excessively might decrease your natural saliva production. Your body produces saliva to clean out the mouth. Without this saliva, you are at a higher risk for decay and cavities.

    Schedule an appointment with one of the qualified dentists at Hudec Dental to get a deeper cleaning and a checkup that helps you keep your teeth and gums healthy. We understand that everyone has unique dental needs that require attention, which is why we offer so many dental services.

    Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?

    Last updated 17 days ago

    Even one missing tooth can negatively affect your oral health. When you are missing one or more teeth, it throws off your entire bite and puts you at a higher risk for oral health issues like periodontal disease. Dental implants provide a permanent solution for these troubles so you can restore the function to your mouth. Keep reading to find out if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

    Dentists prefer dental implant patients to be in good overall health. You should have enough healthy jawbone left to serve as a foundation for the implants. It is also important to have healthy gums that are free from periodontal disease.

    If you think dental implants can help you, schedule an appointment with one of the dentists at Hudec Dental. We are here to give you easy access to dental treatments that can improve the look and function of your mouth. To learn more about our Cleveland services, visit us online or call (216) 661-8888.
