Do Dental Implants Help Preserve The Jaw?
(http://ow.ly/4BmO30nqnoH)

Yes. In fact, dental implants are the only type of cosmetic dentistry proven to preserve natural bone. Not only that, but they can even stimulate bone growth. If you have a healthy jaw and no history of gum disease, dental implants may be right for you.

What Are Invisalign Aligners Made Of?
(http://ow.ly/w3j430nqnoG)

Invisalign oral aligners are manufactured using a clear, high-grade plastic known as Smart Track. Smart Track was developed specifically for Invisalign and contains no BPA, BPS, latex, or gluten. Invisalign aligners are almost entirely see-through and fit snugly over your teeth, making them an attractive alternative to traditional orthodontic treatment options like braces and retainers.

At MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Murray is proud to offer patients access to Invisalign treatment. Start your transformation today; contact us!

If You Experience Tooth Pain, Don't "Wait It Out"
(http://ow.ly/nNGs30nqnoF)

Tooth pain can strike at any time, making it difficult to chew, speak, or yawn. While it might be tempting to "wait it out" and see if the pain subsides, it's better to schedule an appointment with a dentist right away. Left untreated, infected tooth pulp can lead to serious problems including tooth loss.

Do Whitening Treatments Damage My Teeth?
(http://ow.ly/9Hk430nqnoD)

No. Hundreds of research studies have found that exposure to low concentrations of carbamide peroxide, the primary bleaching agent used in most teeth whitening treatments, is safe. However, to achieve the best results, you'll want to work with a board-certified provider like Dr. Murray.

A series of in-office teeth whitening treatments can eradicate years of stains, improving your confidence and smile. Click on the provided link to book your appointment today.

Friendly affection doesn’t have to be so sugar-coated! Rather than giving boxes of chocolates or sugary treats to your loved ones, try gifting heart healthy options, like fresh fruits. Spread the love this Valentine’s Day by celebrating heart health and vitality.

How Can I Tell If My Dental Implants Are Failing?
(http://ow.ly/oUEJ30nqnoz)

Dental implants are generally well-tolerated, but they aren't without risk. Sometimes as a result of an infection or bone loss, implants fail. The symptoms of failing dental implants are similar to those associated with gum disease. Telltale signs include red, irritated gums, particularly those nearest the implant and bad breath, throbbing or pus.

At MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Murray has years of cosmetic dentistry experience. Their adept surgical hand and extensive knowledge ensure dental implant patients receive the utmost care. Click on the provided link to book your appointment today.

Once My Veneers Are Installed, Should I Avoid Certain Foods or Beverages?
(http://ow.ly/s3KI30nqnox)

It's up to you. However, dental veneers are like your natural permanent teeth in that they can become stained. If you want your veneers to stay shiny and white, consider avoiding dark beverages like coffee, red wine, and soda.

How Can I Prevent A Root Canal?
(http://ow.ly/3EO530nqnow)

Typically, tooth pulp becomes inflamed as a result of deep decay. While there's no way to avoid this entirely, you can significantly lower your risk by brushing and flossing your teeth twice each day and visiting Dr. Murray once every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning. If you're an athlete or weekend warrior, it's also recommended you wear a mouthguard to lower your risk of chips, cracks, or knocked out teeth.

At MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Murray is committed to helping patients achieve healthy, bright smiles. Click on the link to book your appointment today!

Absolutely! Practicing good oral hygiene is the easiest way to reduce inflammation and remove plaque from between your teeth and gums. It's also important that you visit the dentist once every six months for a professional cleaning and oral exam.

Will Dr. Murray Know I Don't Floss?
(http://ow.ly/aaHK30nqnou)

Not necessarily. Depending on how well your brush your teeth, the early signs of gum disease aren't always detected. However, it's important that you're honest about your oral hygiene practices during your appointment. We get it; flossing is tedious and time-consuming, but it's also important. A growing body of evidence suggests people who don't floss are also at higher risk of Alzheimer's, heart disease, and diabetes.

Dr. Murray and the team at MJM Family & Cosmetic Dentistry want to help you achieve better oral health. Call today to schedule a cleaning today!
