The Denture Solution

As one of the most common treatments for replacing a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, dentures are a set of artificial gums and teeth custom-designed to fit your mouth and give you back the function of your teeth. Dentures can be full or partial, with the full ones designed to replace all of your upper or lower teeth and the partial ones made to replace individual missing pieces.

Topical Fluoride In Children

Did you know the most chronic disease in children is cavities? Even though your child may brush and floss daily, they might not be brushing as properly as an adult would or using the right amount of toothpaste. Also, consuming sugary foods and drinks contributes to tooth decay because bacteria in the mouth thrive on sugar and leave behind an acid that eats away at the tooth’s enamel. How can you help your child fight tooth decay?


Caring For Your Young Child’s Teeth

Even though baby teeth do fall out, it’s still important to care for them, as they are critical to your child’s dental health and development of their permanent teeth. As soon as the first tooth erupts, or breaks through the gum, you can begin setting good oral health habits. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that your child visit a dentist by the age of 1 or within 6 months after the first tooth erupts. Primary teeth, or as many people call them, baby teeth, begin to grow around 6 months of age. Daily cleaning and regular dental checkups will set your child up for a lifetime of good oral health.


Not Just For Kids

Preventing tooth decay is just as important for adults as it is for children. While we tend to think that it’s only kids who get cavities, adults can get them too. Even if you brush twice a day and floss, bacteria in the mouth, frequent snacking, or drinking sugary drinks can lead to this common dental condition. There is a treatment, however, that adds a layer of protection that will help protect your teeth from harmful bacteria. Read more to find out about this procedure.
