Do You Have Sensitive Teeth?

If hot, cold, sweet or very acidic food and drinks, or breathing in cold air, makes your teeth sensitive then you may have sensitive teeth. It is very common and can come and go.

The most common reason for tooth sensitivity is because the root surfaces of our teeth are exposed to stimulants from the environment, and due to this gum recession, it allows the tooth to feel more than usual.

Now these root surfaces are more porous than the rest of the tooth which is protected by enamel. So in order to help with the sensitivity, many products in the market try to block up these porosities thereby stopping these teeth from feeling any stimulants. Sensitivity could also be a symptom of decay.

There are many products out that say they help with sensitivity but not all of them work for every person. Often times it’s about testing what is out there and whichever product you find works for you is the one that you should use. For more questions regarding sensitive teeth, contact Poser Orthodontics and we will be happy to assist you.

Pumpkin French Toast - NEW FALL RECIPE

Do you like pumpkin flavored everything? We do! We've done some searching for new innovative ways to add pumpkin to your favorite meals and found this delicious recipe for Pumpkin French Toast!  Who will be making these this weekend? 

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 9 slices Texas toast (or other white bread such as Challah or French bread)
  • Butter, for griddle
  1. Preheat an electric griddle to 350 degrees (a non-stick skillet set over medium heat also works fine). In a mixing bowl whisk together milk, pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger until well combined. Pour into a shallow dish.
  2. Butter griddle and dip bread into egg mixture (allowing a few seconds for it to absorb mixture. I also squeeze gently to soak the mixture to center), then rotate and coat opposite side. Transfer to griddle and cook until golden brown on bottom, then lift, butter griddle once more and flip french toast to opposite side and cook until golden brown. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
