Until scientists come up with a way to allow people to regrow teeth (and they're working on it), dental implants remain the most effective permanent tooth replacement option. A dental implant looks and functions just like a natural tooth, although its root structure is the titanium implant, and the tooth itself is a dental crown. But do you care for a dental implant in the same way as you would a natural tooth?
You probably take steps every day to protect your teeth, mainly because most people value their teeth. Do you take measures to prevent gum disease, though? Many people do not realize how prevalent gum disease is, nor do they realize the value of protecting their gums. If you want to prevent gum disease from forming, you can take steps to achieve this goal. Here are some ways you can prevent developing gum disease.
One of the most challenging experiences that children have to go through are visits to the dentist. The experience can be more challenging when your child has autism or other health conditions. A regular dentist may not have the skill and training needed to handle a special needs child. Sadly, if their visit is handled poorly, the experience will embed itself in your child's mind, and they will become even more reserved about visiting the dentist.
Up until a year ago, I did my best to keep my teeth and gums clean. But after securing a new job, I began to work late into the night and didn't have the time or energy to brush and floss before I retired to bed. My busy schedule and poor dental hygiene finally affected my teeth and gums. After experiencing severe pain in several of my teeth, I made an appointment with my dentist. My dentist examined my mouth and discovered three large cavities in my molars. After four long weeks, my dentist finally completed my dental work. I learned a very painful lesson during that time. No matter how busy you are, always brush and floss. I started this blog to inform other people about the importance of good dental care. I hope you find the time to read it. Thanks for visiting.
