Operating as usual

[04/28/15]   If you are wearing braces, many orthodontists recommend you rinse carefully with an antiseptic dental rinse once you’re finished brushing and flossing. Not only can this help minor gum inflammations, but it will remove any leftover debris from the cleaning.

[04/24/15]   As is the case with your natural teeth, regular scheduled visits are recommended to maintain your dental implants. See your dentist as scheduled and he or she can ascertain the implants’ condition and make any adjustments if needed.

[04/21/15]   Are your teeth stained from smoking, food, or constant drinking of beverages such as coffee, tea, or red wine? We offer all the latest in teeth whitening technology to ensure you have a brilliant, long-lasting smile.

[04/17/15]   Teeth bleaching or whitening is the most common dental cosmetic procedure done today. Many teeth whitening options are available over-the-counter; however, it is dentist-conducted teeth whitening treatments that are recommended to lighten and brighten discolored teeth.

[04/14/15]   Denture repairs are happening much more quickly today. If you bring us your dentures and explain the problem, we can have your dentures fixed right in the office within a few minutes or a couple of hours, depending on the problem.

[04/10/15]   The leading events that seem to prompt people to whiten their teeth include weddings, family or class reunions, job interviews, and birthdays. If you would like extra-white teeth for a special event, be sure to plan ahead to ensure you have plenty of time to whiten.

[04/07/15]   5. Dental implants are a great option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth and do not want the hassle of dentures. In fact, dental implants perform just like real teeth do and look natural when you smile or laugh. If you are missing a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, infection, or an accident then get with your implant dentist and he or she can determine through consultation if a dental implant is right for you.

[04/03/15]   Leaving empty spaces in your mouth from missing teeth can do more than affect your smile. It can lead to a load of health issues, including the loss and deterioration of your jawbone. A dental implant functions like a tooth root, so it actually stimulates bone growth in your jaw.

[03/31/15]   If you are missing teeth, or have had missing teeth, you might notice that you may develop certain speaking problems. Dentures will help with this. By replacing the missing teeth, you will be able to speak naturally and fluidly.

[03/27/15]   Dental implants are designed to replace missing permanent teeth. The replacement tooth is anchored into your jaw with titanium metal, which over time fuses with your jawbone. This means the replacement will look, feel and perform like a natural tooth.

[03/24/15]   Old superstitions about teeth which have been around for hundreds of years include: people with pointy teeth should not be trusted, overlapping teeth is a sign of one who is “closed-mouthed” and a space between the two front upper incisors is a sign of great wealth.

[03/20/15]   If you’ve had braces, you may notice that, once you get them off, there are white spots on the teeth. After the braces are removed, the areas that were not easily reached with a toothbrush are exposed as whiter. Normal brushing will remove the plaque, but braces create a barrier that restricts where a toothbrush can reach.

[03/17/15]   Teeth whitening is the most widely requested cosmetic treatment in America, according to studies conducted by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). Why? Teeth yellow as you age, and whiter teeth instantly make you appear younger.

[03/13/15]   Gum graft surgery is usually an option when the gum disease has reached the point where the gum has receded in spots and exposed tooth roots. Gum tissue from elsewhere in your mouth, or perhaps from a donor, is used to cover up the exposed root. Gum graft surgery can also help to restore the normal appearance of your teeth where the gum line has receded.

[03/06/15]   What's the first thing you notice about a person that creates a positive or negative impression? According to a survey by the American Dental Association, an attractive smile beat out eyes, hair and physical attributes.

[03/03/15]   To help limit the spread of bacteria – and the common cold – in households, it is best for toothbrushes to be stored in individual places. Toothbrushes all stored in the same cup or holder can bump up against one another and transfer germs.

[02/27/15]   Did you know that periodontal disease has been associated with other health issues? Studies have linked gum disease with heart disease, blood sugar issues, and even preterm delivery in women.

[02/24/15]   Having a dental team is the best combination for fighting periodontal disease. Your regular dentist and your periodontist should share information on a regular basis in order to better monitor your general oral health, and to identify problems that exist or may arise.

[02/20/15]   The FDA permits the term bleaching to be used only when the teeth can be whitened beyond its natural color. Bleaching products typically contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Toothpastes are considered as whiteners because toothpaste restores a tooth’s surface color by cleaning your teeth.

[02/17/15]   The dentures we make look way more natural than dentures in the past. Years ago, you could tell when anyone was wearing dentures. Not so with today’s dentures, which look far more natural and can be mistaken for real teeth.

[02/13/15]   Human gums are pretty amazing. They hold the teeth in place and offer protection for them. Gums, collectively known as the "periodontium," are made up of three parts: periodontal ligaments (anchors), alveolar processes (supports), and the gingiva (the pink tissue you see around your teeth.)

[02/10/15]   Research has found that most adults—75 percent—believe that a nice smile is associated with career success, and 84 percent feel that an attractive smiles helps in meeting a soul mate. Not surprisingly, the same survey found that people feel that teeth are the key facial feature they would change. Teeth whitening can quickly and easily brighten your face and improve your look.

[02/06/15]   Beyond replacing and restoring damaged teeth, we also offer such services as tooth whitening, bonding, porcelain veneers, and dental implants. We will help you find the perfect solution to improve your smile.

[02/03/15]   What is the best way to clean a baby’s first teeth? As soon as the first tooth begins to erupt, the tooth can be cleaned with a soft warm washcloth or even a very soft bristled baby tooth brush. Wiping the gums after each meal can also help to support healthy gums.

[01/30/15]   Dental implants have an advantage over tooth-supported bridges in that they are supported by your jawbone. Bridges require a grinding away of the teeth around the bridge, thus damaging the healthy teeth around them, while dental implants leave supporting teeth intact.

[01/27/15]   For a natural-looking smile that takes years away from your face, whitening your teeth is a great option. People will notice a positive change and may comment that you look younger, but will likely not be able to pinpoint what change you made.

[01/23/15]   Did you know that dentures were some of the earliest forms of dentistry? They were first produced in Northern Italy in 700BC and were made from human and animal teeth.

[01/20/15]   Do you have any issues with cracked or chipped teeth? Don't be self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth. We can correct those issues so you never have to hide your smile.

[01/16/15]   What are a few common habits which can cause serious dental problems over time? Chewing on pencils, ice or other hard objects, cleaning teeth with toothpicks, grinding teeth or clenching the jaw, nail biting and brushing too hard.

[01/13/15]   Consider purchasing a backup set of dentures. Lost or broken dentures can prove distressing and embarrassing. For those reasons, having a second set of dentures available is a worthwhile investment.

[01/09/15]   Like gingivitis, periodontitis is not usually painful. Gums recede and will bleed when you brush your teeth, and other common symptoms include bad breath and a bad taste in the mouth.

[01/06/15]   When you’re about to have your remaining teeth pulled out, you may worry that you’ll be unable to eat anything substantial for quite a while. In many cases, it may be possible to fit you with temporary dentures so that you don’t have to go without teeth while your mouth heals.

[01/02/15]   Dental implants are made to last a lifetime unlike other possible dental solutions such as a tooth-supported bridge. Dental implants may need periodic adjustments, but as long as they are cared for properly, they should not need replacing.

[12/30/14]   When eating with your new dentures, it’s recommended that you eat slowly and deliberately. Place even amounts of food on both sides of your mouth while chewing so as to balance your biting forces.

[12/26/14]   If you're missing a tooth, it can be easy to think that you're the odd one out, but it's actually the opposite. Around 69% of American between 35 and 44 have at least one missing tooth. And 25% of Americans over 74 have lost all of their natural teeth.
