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.
The last time you were at your dentist office, did you update your health history?
