Getting Rid of Gum Disease
Several years ago, I scheduled an appointment with my husband’s dentist. During my visit, I was shocked to learn I was suffering from gum disease. I discovered my gum disorder was caused from not seeing a dentist in more than five years or flossing my teeth daily. To treat my gum disease, the dentist prescribed a medicated mouthwash for me to use twice each day. I also had to undergo multiple, professional cleanings at the dentist’s office. I began flossing every day too. In a few, short months, my gum disease was completely cured. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart, simple tips to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy for life. Enjoy!

Sedation dentistry is an option you might want to consider when you need to have dental work done. Especially if you dread it so much that you put off going to the dentist.

A healthy smile is important for everyone, but even a healthy smile can start to look dull if stains appear. Teeth-whitening treatments are available, but there are also many ways you can reduce the risk of stains.

1. Brush and Floss Regularly
When particles get stuck to your teeth, they can lead to stains.
A missing tooth greatly impacts your smile, and it can also lead to future problems with your oral health if it's not replaced. Your jawbone requires constant stimulation in order to maintain its bone density, and a gap in your teeth results in an area of your jawbone that's not receiving any force from chewing. As a result, the bone that your missing tooth used to connect to will slowly begin to waste away, and this can result in your other teeth shifting out of position.
