How to Prevent Periodontal Disease
(http://ow.ly/QuhQ30ncegN)

To prevent periodontal disease avoid tobacco use and eat a healthy, balanced diet. You may not be able to remove all the plaque around the gum line even if you brush and floss consistently. Plaque can harden into tartar, so this is why it's important to get regular cleanings to remove the tartar. Plaque and tartar result in gum inflammation called gingivitis, which if not treated eventually leads to periodontal disease.

Some of the most common symptoms of TMJ are pain, limited movement of the lower jaw, clicking sounds in the jaw, muscle spasms and locking of the jaw. Some potential causes of the disease include genetics, hormones, low-level infections, autoimmune diseases, trauma, and clenching or grinding of the teeth.

The Most Effective Way to Floss Your Teeth
(http://ow.ly/XA2h30ncegK)

Plaque will build up if you neglect to floss your teeth for a long period of time. The best way to floss is to guide it between your teeth using a gentle rubbing motion. You should avoid snapping the floss into the gums and gently slide it into the space between the gum and the tooth. When the floss reaches the gum line, you can carve it into a C shape against one tooth.

Why Choose Dental Implants Over Fixed Bridges and Removable Dentures
(http://ow.ly/ks9G30ncegJ)

When compared to fixed bridges and removable dentures supported by other teeth or gum tissue, dental implants offer numerous advantages including better aesthetics, reduction of bone resorption, retention and stabilization, and preservation of the natural tooth structure. Dental implants provide a permanent solid foundation to support a natural-looking crown or bridge. Dental implants provide more stability and support compared to removable partial dentures or complete dentures.

How Long Do Dental Sealants Last?
(http://ow.ly/dNOX30ncegH)

Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are placed on the surface of back teeth to protect teeth from decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, acting as a barrier over the enamel of each tooth to protect from plaque and acids. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a painful cavity or require more expensive dental treatment in the future.

When a Dental Inlay or Onlay is Your Best Solution
(http://ow.ly/ilho30ncegG)

There are times when a tooth suffers damage from decay that is too extensive to be treated with a simple filling, but not extensive enough to need a full crown. When this occurs, the best option for restoring the tooth may be a dental inlay or onlay. Both inlays and onlays are considered “indirect” fillings, meaning that they are fabricated outside the mouth and then bonded to the tooth by the dentist rather than applied directly to the cavity in one office visit like a "direct filling".

Halitosis: What to Do With Stubborn Bad Breath
(http://ow.ly/9opK30ncegE)

If mints, toothbrushing and mouthwash don't reduce your bad breath, you may have halitosis. If halitosis remains for an extended amount of time, it may be a sign of something more serious. Halitosis has a number of possible causes, including dental issues, mouth, nose or throat infection, dry mouth, smoking or other chronic health conditions such as gastric reflux, diabetes, and liver or kidney disease. The most common cause of halitosis is bad oral hygiene from particles of food that are left in the mouth and broken down by bacteria that produce sulfur compounds.

8 Common Symptoms of an Infected Tooth
(http://ow.ly/NdlS30ncegC)

An infected (abscessed) tooth can cause intense pain if you don't get it treated quickly enough. Infected tooth symptoms can include gum inflammation, tooth soreness, intense tooth sensitivity to hot and cold, Halitosis, pus around the tooth, painful throbbing in your jaw or mouth, tooth darkening or a small pimple-like bump on your gums. You may need X-rays so your dentist can evaluate the full extent of the tooth damage before your root canal is performed.

What You Should Know About Dental Bridges
(http://ow.ly/qpBf30ncegB)

Dental bridges close the gap caused by a missing tooth. A traditional dental bridge consists of artificial teeth held in place by dental crowns that are cemented onto each of the abutment teeth. A traditional bridge is the most popular type and can be used when you have natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by your missing tooth.
