She’s Got Her Mother’s Smile! Or Does She? - It’s all in the genes when it comes to many traits and characteristics inherited from parent to child. In some ways, the same can be said for our smiles. At my Wichita dental office, we were curious to know if children are more likely to inherit the same dental problems as their parents and how DNA influences dental health. Let’s find out. Blame it on the DNA Several dental problems can be passed down from parent to child through DNA including: The size and shape of the mouth, which could result in a bad bite and TMJ pain Teeth alignment including gaps, crookedness, and overcrowding Oral cancer risk Cleft palates Knowing your family’s medical history and what diseases tend to be more prominent is a great first step in being able to detect and treat problems early.

How Long Does a Tooth Filling Last? - While there are several dental myths we strive to debunk everyday by educating our patients, there’s one that’s particularly concerning for all of us at my Wichita dental office.  A common misconception is that once you get a cavity filled, you’re good to go for life.

The lifespan of dental fillings depends on what type of material is used to fill the cavity. Some last longer than others. Some have other advantages to them besides lasting a long time. It depends on which type of filling is used, where it’s used, and how well you care for your teeth that can all impact the life expectancy of a dental filling. Silver Fillings There are some pros to getting silver fillings, but also some negatives.
