It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.

We offer effective treatment for bone loss around the teeth. It’s a serious problem that can accompany tooth loss and can lead to cosmetic changes in your face that affect both your appearance, the way you chew your food and how you can talk. Without the adequate underlying supporting structure of bone, placing dentures or other dental restorations can be difficult.

The tips for relief from dry mouth: Use over-the-counter oral moisturizers; drink more water and always carry a water bottle with you; use sugar-free gum or lozenges to stimulate saliva production; use a home humidifier to help keep moisture in the air; avoid foods and beverages that irritate dry mouths like coffee, alcohol, soft drinks and acidic fruit juices.

You need to overcome the tug of people against you as you reach for high goals. - George S. Patton

Gum recession compromises the body’s natural defenses against bacteria and trauma. For minor recession, you may have enough of an existing gumline to still protect your teeth. However, if the recession is too severe, your first line of defense against bacteria is lost. This may also result in root sensitivity and an unsightly appearance of both the gums and teeth.

To keep your teeth and gums healthy, you should always brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled brush. A soft-bristled brush is ideal for sensitive gums. The size and shape of your brush should fit your mouth allowing you to reach all areas easily. Don’t forget to replace your toothbrush every three or four months or sooner if the bristles are frayed.

Even if you wear full dentures, you still have to practice good dental hygiene. You should brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque. Before brushing, you should floss to remove any food particles between your teeth.
