What Is Sedation Dentistry?
(http://ow.ly/OIuK30n3Sap)

Sedation dentistry is the solution for anyone who genuinely struggles with the idea of sitting in the dentist's chair. Your dentist can prescribe calming medication to relax you during your visit. There are different levels of sedation, depending on the procedure you're having done. Inhaled minimal sedation (usually in the form of nitrous oxide) gets you through a simple exam or cleaning and wears off very quickly afterward, while deep sedation may be necessary for a longer, more complex procedure such as a root canal. Your dentist can advise you on the best option in your case.

Adult Braces Before and After: What to Expect When They Come Off
(http://ow.ly/61mK30n3Sao)

Almost a quarter of all patients fitted with orthodontics are adults – whatever your age, it's a good idea to straighten crooked teeth. Straight teeth tend to be easier to keep clean and are less likely to cause uneven wear and tear within your jaw. Your dentist keeps track of the position of each one of the teeth inside your braces and will let you know when it's time to take them off. You may have to wear a specially molded retainer for several weeks afterward. Straightening crooked teeth isn't an overnight process, but your dazzling new smile will be worth it in the end.

What Causes Periodontal Disease?
(http://ow.ly/UvtS30n3Sak)

Periodontal or gum disease is caused by pockets of bacteria that collect on and around your teeth. The bacteria, plus other particles and mucus found in your mouth, forms the sticky, colorless substance called plaque. If it isn't removed – by brushing and flossing – accumulated plaque causes tooth decay and periodontal disease. Other factors in the development of periodontal disease are smoking, nutrition, other medical conditions such as diabetes, and stress, which often leads to tooth grinding.

Which Comes First, Brushing or Flossing? New Study Shows That We Should Clean Between Our Teeth Before Brushing
(http://ow.ly/NnSL30mHKuR)

Your regular toothbrush is designed to brush the top, front, and back (don't forget the back!) of your teeth. It's not going to be able to reach the sides, or the areas between teeth. For that, you need to floss or to use an interdental brush. A recent study suggests you should make interdental brushing part of your routine – you'll find it's most effective to use an interdental brush before your regular scrubbing.

Here's What Happens if You Stop Brushing Your Teeth
(http://ow.ly/N2ux30mHKuP)

If you spend the recommended minimum of time brushing your teeth (two minutes, twice a day) you'll clock up just over 24 hours per year with your toothbrush. That sounds like a significant investment, but it's one that's definitely worth making. Missing just one brushing session can lead to the growth of bacteria in your mouth and over time this can lead to serious health issues. Spend just a few minutes per day on your teeth, maintaining your Daily 4 (brush, floss, rinse, and chew) routine to improve your overall health as well as giving you a sparkling smile and fresh breath.

What Are Dental Inlays and Onlays?
(http://ow.ly/NQbY30mHKuO)

Damage or decay can leave holes in the surface of your teeth. Dental inlays and onlays are used to plug these holes and protect your tooth from further trauma. Dental inlays and onlays are individually molded from gold, porcelain, or composite resin – depending on the position of the tooth, your budget, and the degree of damage. A dental inlay is attached to the cusp (the bump on the biting surface of your tooth) if that's still there, while onlays are positioned over a bigger area.

What Is TMJ Syndrome? Symptoms and Treatment of Jaw Pain
(http://ow.ly/6Exp30mHKuL)

If you're experiencing persistent pain in your jaw, particularly in the joints, you may have the temporomandibular joint syndrome, also referred to as TMJ or TMD. It's actually quite a general term used to describe several different conditions that cause pain in your face, which can stem from strain or inflammation in the joints, muscles or ligaments. Talk to your dentist about any pain you're experiencing in this area, even if it comes and goes. Treatment options vary from case to case, but include simple cold or warm compresses, avoiding tough foods, painkillers, muscle relaxants and, sometimes, surgery.

What Is Gingivitis?
(http://ow.ly/K1yR30mHKuK)

The main symptom of gingivitis is red, swollen, or bleeding gums, usually caused by a mild bacterial infection or the buildup of dental plaque and tartar. It's important to deal with gingivitis even though it's usually a mild condition causing to minor discomfort. If left untreated, it can lead to the more serious periodontal disease and tooth loss. Regular brushing, flossing, rinsing, and chewing dental gum should keep your mouth healthy but if you are experiencing outbreaks of gingivitis on a regular basis let your dentist know.

What is a Gummy Smile?
(http://ow.ly/p9Pu30mHKuI)

If you feel as though your upper lip exposes too much gum when you smile, out of proportion to the length of your front teeth, you may have what's called excessive gingival display, otherwise known as a gummy smile. This can be the luck of the genetic lottery, or it might be caused by periodontal disease or taking certain medications. Your dentist can help you improve the look of your smile by gently contouring your gums to bring them into balance with your teeth.
