All About Implants

My teeth were starting to deteriorate, and I was running out of options to repair them. The dentist gave me a choice. I could wait until the bone loss was so bad that I would have to have my teeth removed and get dentures, or I could have them removed now and get dental implants. I opted for the implants. If you’re thinking of getting dental implants, you probably have a lot of questions. I love mine, but they took some getting used to. In this blog, I’m sharing my experience and all the information that I picked up throughout my implant experience. You can find out what the procedure entails, how to prepare for your implants, and how to care for them once they’re in.

Three Tips To Keep Your Teeth White

by Alfredo Moore

The whiteness of your teeth will be one of the first things that other people notice when you smile. Sadly, there are many individuals that are relatively uninformed about the steps that they should be taking to safely and effectively keep their teeth white.

Appreciate The Need To Remove Stain-Causing Pigments Soon After Eating Or Drinking Them

There are many foods and drinks that will be extremely rich in pigments. While these pigments may give these substances appetizing colors, they can cause severe staining of teeth if the pigments are not removed from the teeth in a prompt manner. Often, it may simply not be possible to brush your teeth or use a mouthwash. Luckily, you may that you can help remove many of these pigments and dilute the remaining ones by following these foods or drinks with a glass of water. While this will not be a perfect solution, it will help to minimize the staining that can occur until you are able to thoroughly brush and rinse your mouth.

Avoid Attempting Whitening Treatments When You Have Untreated Cavities

Over time, there will be some stains that will inevitably form on your teeth. These stains can be unattractive, and they can eventually get severe enough to cause major impacts on the quality and appearance of your smile. There may be many different whitening treatments that can be used to remove these stains, but you should always avoid using these treatments until you have any cavities treated. If you allow these whitening solutions to get into the interior of the tooth through the cavities, you can cause severe damage to the tissue inside the tooth. In extreme cases, this may result in the need for a root canal to repair this damage.

Seek Professional Whitening Services For Stains That Are Resistant To Home-Based Whitening

Home-based whitening kits can be extremely effective for those that only suffer from mild or shallow stains. However, there are many people that may find that their dental stains have become very ingrained in the enamel of their teeth. Home-based whitening kits will likely be too weak to penetrate deep enough to remove these stubborn stains.

Sadly, there are people that will attempt to leave the whitening solution on their teeth for much longer or they may use more than is recommended. In addition to being unlikely to be effective, this can severely damage the teeth. A more effective solution for removing these deep stains will be to undergo a professional whitening treatment as a dentist will be able to use advanced techniques and powerful whitening solutions to safely remove these stains.
