How Often Should You Brush (https://goo.gl/kFJeAD)

Is plaque build-up causing tooth damage to your teeth? You might notice that brushing is making a minimum amount of progress in helping your teeth stay healthy. Tooth decay can be an unfortunate result of brushing at the wrong time.

Tooth decay starts to set up about 20 minutes after you eat or drink.

Does It Hurt To Get Dental Implants?
(http://ow.ly/IZCu30mZBvv)

No. Thanks to modern anesthetics and treatment techniques, dental implants are generally well-tolerated. Following your appointment you may experience some swelling, soreness, and general discomfort. However, these symptoms should subside within a few days and can be relieved by taking an over-the-counter painkiller.

How Long Does A Typical Dental Cleaning Take?
(http://ow.ly/7sKZ30mZBvo)

In the majority of cases, dental cleanings take between 30 and 60 minutes. The length of your appointment will depend upon how much tartar and plaque have built-up on your teeth. Practicing good oral hygiene in-between appointments is an effective way to speed the process up.

It's always good to remember that prevention is better than cure. Screenings and regular check-ups have been proven to increase life expectancy, especially among people between 30 to 49 years old. It's highly beneficial to spread awareness and start young and early; check this list to see what you can do!

Can Cavities Be Reversed?
(http://ow.ly/8k3e30mZBvm)

It depends. If your dentist catches a cavity in its earliest stages, a professional in-office fluoride treatment may be able to stop the decay from getting worse. However, fluoride isn't a cure-all for tooth decay or other serious oral health problems. The best thing you can do to prevent issues like these is to brush and floss on a daily basis.

Does Banana Peel Teeth Whitening Work?
(http://ow.ly/snG630mZBvj)

No. There is no scientific evidence that suggests rubbing the inside of a banana peel against the surface of your teeth will make them whiter. That being said, if you dream of having a whiter, brighter smile there are an array of in-office teeth whitening treatments as well as over-the-counter strips and take home whitening trays.

Does My Diet Impact My Oral Health?
(http://ow.ly/gZT030mZBve)

Yes. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet ensures your body accesses the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals it needs to thrive. Whenever you eat or drink sugary or starchy foods, the bacteria in your mouth produce acids that attack your enamel for up to 20 minutes. Over the years, this can take a significant toll on the appearance and quality of your permanent teeth. While there's nothing wrong with splurging every once in a while, primarily stick to fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins.

Are There Certain Factors That Increase My Risk of Gum Disease?
(http://ow.ly/Ik8V30mZBv9)

Yes. While gum disease can affect anyone, there are certain habits and factors that can increase your risk of a problem. For example, if you're over the age of 65, you're more likely to suffer from gum disease than someone who is younger. Research shows almost 70% of individuals over 65 have some type of gum disease. Other contributing factors include smoking cigarettes, having a family history of gum disease, and certain prescription medications.
