Thinking about getting an implant but hesitant due to their “recent” introduction to dentistry?

Surprise! Implants have actually been around a lot longer than you may think. Implants date back hundreds if not thousands of years.

In today’s world of dentistry there are lots of options that can at times be overwhelming! How do you decide what is best? Silver or tooth colored fillings is one topic that we can explore and what the differences are.

So, you are at the dental office and the hygienist finishes up with your cleaning. The doctor comes in and gives you the “routine” exam (which ends up NOT being routine) and tells you that you are in need of some new fillings. The old ones are breaking down and it’s time to replace them. Here are your options: Mercury or white ones. Well, which do I choose? Let’s explore the difference in this blog!

Dental implants to replace missing teeth are a hot topic these days. Your friend got one, you’ve heard people talking about them, but you’re still not sure exactly how it works or what it is. In this blog we will be explaining exactly what an implant is, what components are used to restore it, and how it’s placed.

A well balanced diet is essential for maintaining a healthy body but did you also know that it is just as important to your oral health? Vitamins and minerals found in many foods help avoid an assortment of problems that may arise without them.

The last time you were at your dentist office, did you update your health history? When they got to the part about anything you may be taking whether prescription or over the counter, did you skip all the supplements because you just didn’t want to list them all? Beware of that practice! Did you know that some of those can have side effects with surgeries or with other medications that your dentist may prescribe? According to the American Dental Association (ADA) there are four common dietary supplements that can cause adverse side effects.

I bet you have heard from many of your friends and colleagues that the dreaded root canal is the worst thing you could have done. Am I right? Why do you think that you hear that over and over again? In this blog I am going to explain why some say it is painful and others say it was a breeze!
