Operating as usual
[11/28/13] If your child has lost a permanent tooth, consult with your dentist. While dental implants are typically deferred until the child’s jaw has stopped growing, there are instances where an implant is the recommended solution.
[11/26/13] Starting good dental habits with your kids can lead to a lifetime of healthy teeth. More than half of all kids between 6 and 8 years old have tooth decay, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
[11/21/13] When should a child visit the dentist for the first time? The best time for a first dental appointment is when the very first tooth begins to erupt. An early dental appointment can help to ensure a lifetime of healthy oral hygiene.
[11/19/13] Once your teeth have been removed, there will be a healing period. Once the gums have healed, the next steps involve taking impressions from which a cast will be made to use for manufacturing your new full or partial dentures. Your dentist may provide you with temporary dentures during this time.
[11/14/13] Before we administer any form of sedative medications, we will review your medical history, and it is important that you let us know of any allergies you may have or previous problems with anesthetics. If you are not sure, we can contact your primary care physician.
[11/12/13] Wondering if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening? This is a great way to improve one’s appearance, specifically the smile. The best candidate is a person who regularly visits the dentist and doesn’t have any signs that additional dental work is necessary.
[08/08/13] Do you ever feel like you could break your tooth just because you bit into a piece of hard candy or a nut? If you have weakened tooth enamel, you could crack it, giving bacteria easy entry to your nerves.
[08/05/13] If you are a good candidate for whitening, your dentist will probably suggest that the best teeth whitening method is the in-office procedure. While it is the most expensive method, a professional teeth whitening procedure will give you the brightest, whitest smile in the shortest amount of time.
[08/02/13] Depending on your insurance plan, you may be eligible for certain cosmetic dental procedures at a discounted rate. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if you can receive discounts on procedures like teeth whitening and veneers.
[07/30/13] Did you know that you aren't born with the bacteria that cause tooth decay? Kids actually received that from their parents.
[07/27/13] Did you know that missing teeth can lead to sunken facial features? If you have missing teeth, schedule an appointment as soon as possible to find out how dental implants can help to remedy damaging cosmetic effects caused by missing teeth.
[07/24/13] While heading into our office for your regular check-up may not be at the top of your list of fun things to do, it's necessary. A professional cleaning is often the only way to remove hardened plaque from teeth and gums.
[07/21/13] A great smile can give you not only confidence, but perhaps a boost in life! A recent study showed that those who smiled in their yearbook photos were more likely to have successful careers and marriages than their straight faced classmates.
[07/18/13] When you have a toothache, normal activities like drinking water and breathing can become painful. Not only can we help make the pain stop, we can also ensure bacteria don't have the opportunity to seep in and do more damage.
[07/15/13] Having white teeth starts with proper oral hygiene. When you take proper care of your teeth, you can slow the erosion of tooth enamel. Eroded enamel often appears more yellow and faded.
[07/12/13] Did you know that foods containing high fructose corn syrup can damage the enamel - and color - of your teeth? Essentially, these foods bathe your teeth in sugar, which can erode enamel.
[07/09/13] Although whole apples can be hard on braces, thinly sliced apples don't normally pose a problem. For a sweet treat, have your child dip the slices in yogurt. Just be sure to remind them to brush afterward.
[07/06/13] While good oral hygiene can play a significant role in determining the health of your teeth, very few people have naturally perfect teeth. Scheduling a consultation with a cosmetic dentist can set you on the right track to both healthy and beautiful teeth.
[07/03/13] Did you know that dental fillings can fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry? Ask a cosmetic dentist if you can benefit from tooth-colored or clear fillings that both protect your teeth and keep them looking healthy and white.

[06/27/13] Did you know that, according to a 1997 Gallup poll, dentists placed fifth as the most trusted medical professionals in the United States?
[06/24/13] Although porcelain veneers are immune to tooth decay, the uncovered parts of the teeth they're attached to are not. Thus, it's important to floss and brush diligently after meals, concentrating especially on those hard-to-reach places behind the veneer.
[06/21/13] Left untreated, cavities can cause significant pain. Once the bacteria eat through your enamel, the exposed nerves will begin to send pain sensations when in contact with hot or cold temperatures.

[06/12/13] Did you know that the quality of your tooth enamel determines how bright your pearly whites will be? Following proper dental hygiene techniques can help speed along teeth whitening procedures.
[06/09/13] It's always a good idea to put the cap back on your toothpaste so that it doesn't dry up. But don't encase the toothbrush. This will actually encourage the growth of bacteria by trapping moisture.
[06/06/13] Cosmetic dentistry differs from general or family dental practices since it offers elective treatments that repair the look of a patient's teeth. Today's cosmetic dentists use conservative techniques in an effort to preserve as much of your natural tooth structure as possible. Those techniques coupled with advancements in natural-looking dental materials help achieve durable, natural results.
[06/03/13] Did you know that teeth reshaping can be used to repair cracked or fractured teeth, remove surface spots and even out your smile? Talk with your dentist to find out if teeth reshaping procedures may be an option for you.
[05/31/13] Did you know that severe toothaches can eventual lead to a swollen face? When this happens, make your appointment to see us as soon as possible. In the meantime, an ice pack can help with the swelling.
[05/28/13] When the damage caused by tooth decay is too large to be restored by a filling, a crown, which is a tooth-shaped cap, is placed entirely over the damaged tooth to restore its shape, size, and appearance. Crowns may be made of porcelain or composite material.
[05/25/13] Did you know that some of the most common things that can stain your teeth are smoking, eating certain foods, and drinking beverages such as coffee, tea, or red wine? Visiting a cosmetic dentist for teeth bleaching can restore whiteness to your smile.
[05/22/13] Are you children always running off when it's time to brush their teeth? Since some children are fascinated by gadgets, letting them use an electric toothbrush could make the experience more fun to them.
[05/19/13] Do you want to straighten crooked teeth without spending several years wearing traditional braces? Ask a cosmetic dentist about options for teeth straightening that are almost invisible to others when they look at your teeth.
[05/16/13] If you're trying to instill the value of regular tooth brushing in your children, consider making it a requirement before fun activities. For instance, no bedtime story if the teeth aren't brushed.
