Do you look in the mirror and wish that your teeth were a little whiter and brighter? If so, you certainly aren’t the only one. Teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic dentistry treatment in the U.S. and numbers of patients choosing this procedure continue to rise year or year.
Our teeth take a beating during their lifetime, so a little discoloration and staining is to be expected. Nevertheless, having teeth that are less than perfectly white can have a detrimental effect on our confidence and self-esteem. Surveys and studies have consistently shown that teeth that are white and evenly-spaced will make us more attractive to those around us. White teeth are also considered to be hallmarks of health and success. When you consider these opinions, perhaps it isn’t so surprising that teeth whitening is so popular after all.
No-one exactly relishes squeezing a trip to the dentist into their already packed schedule, but for some people, the idea of stepping foot near their dentist’s office is enough to make them run for the hills. Fear of the dental, dental anxiety, dental phobia – it is known as many things. Nevertheless, it is no laughing matter. Millions of Americans avoid visiting their dentist through fear each year and their dental health is suffering for it. The good news is that there is a solution that can enable even the most frightened patient to sit through a dental appointment – sedation dentistry.

At the end of 1930s the world finally had proof that mottled enamel was caused by water-borne fluoride, and that a level of 1 part per million or lower would not cause the disorder. However, many questions still remained.
Fluoride and Cavity Protection
Finding what were considered safe levels of fluoride in water pushed Dr. H.T. Dean’s research on the issue in a new direction. All the research he had used to make his discoveries, particularly the work done by Dr. Frederick McKay and Dr. Green Vardiman Black, showed that teeth which were affected by mottled enamel displayed remarkable resistance to decay.
When it comes to facial aesthetics, most of us don’t like wrinkles on our face. They are often a reminder of how quickly time is passing, and if we could get an opportunity to remove that reminder, chances are most of us would take it. Botox is that opportunity.
How it Works
Made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, Botox has been used as a non-surgical cosmetic treatment to help temporarily improve the look of wrinkles and frown lines for years.
While their name might suggest otherwise, wisdom teeth are not always that wise. Third molars which appear significantly later than other teeth have a tendency to stay partially under the gum tissue, causing you pain, infection, and various other dental problems. The best solution in this case is to have them extracted.
Your dentist can remove a wisdom tooth at their offices or in extreme cases you may need an oral or maxillofacial surgeon.
Losing teeth is always a sensitive matter, especially if it happens at a young age. While we have had various options for their replacement for some time now with, for example, bridges and dentures, there is now a new choice which is fast growing in popularity.
A dental implant replaces both the lost tooth and its root. It is normally constructed using two parts, with the root part inserted directly into the bone, once that is completed and if necessary, healed, the replacement tooth can then be connected to it by using an abutment.
