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!

What do you need to know about dental implants and restorative dentistry? You're missing a tooth—and the dentist recommended an implant. If this is your first experience with this type of restoration, take a look at the top questions patients have about the dental terms, process, and more.
What Is An Implant?
As the name implies, this dentist implants this restoration into your mouth. This means the dentist will insert an anchor under the gumline that will fuse with the jawbone.
Professional dentists strive to save people's teeth and continue to develop new ways to do so. However, sometimes a tooth may be too damaged to be saved, and your dentist might have to remove it. Unfortunately, you might need tooth extraction services at any time, which would mean that you need to visit a dentist urgently. That is why dental offices offer emergency services to deal with these dental emergencies. It is important to know when you need an emergency tooth extraction to visit your dentist on time.
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. Sedation can help if you have anxiety, a strong gag reflex, a fear of needles, or if you're just fidgety and can't bear to sit for very long. Here are a few things to understand about sedation dentistry.
Your wisdom teeth are in the very back of your mouth. For most people, wisdom teeth are the last set of molars that come in. However, wisdom teeth are not necessary for a lot of people. As they come in last, the modern mouth often doesn't have room for them, and allowing your wisdom teeth to come in can have a negative impact on the rest of your teeth. Your mouth will give you signs when your wisdom teeth need to be removed.
