When dental implants are placed, they restore the natural look and function of your smile in the short-term, but they can also have an impact on your appearance in the long-run. Since dental implants fuse with the jaw and prevent bone loss, your facial structure will not become sunken, which is common with extended use of dentures.

Bad breath oftentimes can be a temporary condition, but health conditions, such as gum disease, may cause bad breath as well. If bad breath is a regular occurrence, this could be the sign of a larger, underlying problem, so be sure to have a dental health exam to help determine the cause.

Bleeding after brushing or flossing might mean that you are using too much pressure, but it could also be a sign of gingivitis. If you notice your gums are bleeding after your normal dental hygiene routine, be sure to schedule an appointment to have your gums and teeth evaluated. Catching the signs of gingivitis early is essential for effective treatment.

It’s important to brush thoroughly to remove plaque from your teeth, but brushing too hard can damage your teeth and gums. Using too much pressure can cause sensitive teeth and swollen, bleeding gums.

Did you know that every tooth is unique? Each tooth has its own size and shape, so each person’s smile will not be the same as someone else’s!

After tooth whitening, it is possible for patients to experience sensitivity, but this is mostly temporary. Everyone’s teeth will react differently to teeth whitening treatments, so before starting any tooth whitening process, you should schedule an appointment to have your teeth evaluated. We can help you determine what tooth whitening treatment is the right one for your smile.

The symptoms of gum disease are not always easy to notice, but there are some things you can look out for, such as bleeding gums after brushing or flossing, receding gums, or sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures. However, these are not the only symptoms, so it's important to pay attention to changes in your mouth.

One of the earliest mentions of the term “wisdom teeth” is found in the “History of Animals” written by Aristotle, calling the third set of molars “wisdom teeth” much like we do today. The most common theory as to why they are called wisdom teeth is that you are a few years older and wiser when the third molars appear compared to when the rest of the permanent teeth emerged.

Not everyone will need a bone graft procedure before getting dental implants, but for those with bone loss in their jaw, a bone graft can help create enough bone mass to support the implant. During your pre-surgery consultation, you will learn more about what steps are needed for successful dental implant placement and if bone grafting is the right option for you.

Tooth sensitivity after eating cold foods or drinking cold beverages could be a sign of cavities or enamel erosion. However, only a dental professional will be able to know for certain, so if you notice your teeth are more sensitive, your teeth should be evaluated for signs of dental health problems.
