Wisdom Teeth – Should You Have Them Removed?

June 26, 2018

Wisdom teeth removal means having one or more of the third grinding molars (your wisdom teeth) at the back of your mouth taken out. This can sometimes involve oral surgery.

You’re likely to have wisdom teeth by the time you reach your mid-twenties, though some people find they come through earlier or later than this. Sometimes, your wisdom teeth don’t come through properly (they’re impacted). This can cause problems such as pain, swelling, and infection. Having wisdom teeth taken out can ease these symptoms.

Dental Sealants: What are they and why you should get them

March 13, 2018

Dental sealants protect teeth from cavities by creating a barrier between bacteria-laden plaque and tooth enamel. Back teeth have small “trenches” on their surfaces that can trap food particles. These particles often remain there for a long time because your toothbrush can’t remove them completely. The acids in plaque eventually cause cavities to form. A dental sealant stops decay before it can start by not allowing plaque to make contact with teeth. Your dentist may apply sealants to protect your first permanent molars as soon as they arrive.

Why Dental Checkups are Essential: Treating More than a Toothache

March 13, 2018

When was the last time you visited your family dentist? Safeguarding your dental health is more than a contribution to your good looks; it’s critical to your overall welfare.

Although there are some dentists who suggest a dental checkup once a year is perfectly fine, going every six months is one of the best ways to ensure you are taking proper care of your dental health.

Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

February 28, 2018

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants.

If you’ve struggled with traditional dentures in any way– chewing, sores, speech—you understand that though great for some, there can be limitation.   The issues go beyond comfort. Since dentures float on the gums, they fail to stimulate the underlying bone. If the jawbone is not “exercised” through stimulation, it begins to dissolve and shrink.
