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!

If you are planning to have your teeth professionally whitened, you are probably looking forward to how much brighter your smile will be after a few treatments. However, you may not realize that having your teeth whitened also offers several potential benefits to your overall dental health.
Lifts Away Deep Bacteria-laden Stains
When a whitening treatment is applied to your teeth, it works when the carbamide or hydrogen peroxide penetrates the enamel.
If you are currently facing the issue of having a missing tooth or if you will need to have a tooth extracted in the near future, you may want to take the time to learn about the options that are available for replacing the missing tooth. While you might assume a bridge will be the only viable option, dental implants have become a popular solution for patients that are suffering from missing teeth.
Dental implants do an excellent job of replacing missing teeth, and they can help you to feel better about your smile. However, the ability of dental implants doesn't stop there. Dental implants can help to keep these three distinct parts of your oral health in good shape.
Dental implants can keep gums healthy in two distinct ways: by improving circulation and preventing gum pockets from forming.
While your gums have a flow of blood coming and going constantly, the pressure your gums withstand when you bite and chew helps to improve that circulation further.
If you have diseased nerve and pulp tissue in your teeth, you may want to extract it and get an implant. While dental implants have great success rates, root canal therapy also has good success rates—and nothing beats the original tooth structure. Aae.org says that dental implants usually require more follow-up treatment than root canal therapy, so you may want to consider root canal therapy first.
Take a look at some common root canal concerns and how to improve your chances of a successful treatment.
If you've been considering getting tooth implants to replace missing teeth, chances are you've focused on the functional and cosmetic benefits. However, dental implants go beyond making it easier for you to chew, talk, and to feel less self-conscious while smiling. Dental implants can actually help to keep your body strong in a specific way.
