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. Neglecting one’s oral well-being can lead to a variety of dental and/or medical issues such as bone loss, infection, heart disease, gum disease and more.

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.

Silver Diamine Fluoride

January 30, 2018

A new way to approach oral health has arrived to the United States in recent years – silver diamine fluoride (SDF). While the use of SDF in the United States is fairly recent, with it only being on the U.S. market since April 2015, it has been used in other counties such as Germany, China and Japan for over 80 years in the treatment of tooth decay. Silver diamine fluoride is now also recommended by The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) in treating cavities in primary teeth of pediatric and special needs patients. Since treatment is a quick, painless way to prevent the further spread of tooth decay, silver diamine fluoride may be an ideal solution for your family.
