Do you like to remove all the metal in your back teeth, but you don’t want your teeth cut down for caps or crowns?

When we remove all the metal in back teeth we remove the metal, all the underlying decay and evident fractures. All healthy natural tooth structure is left intact. It is not cut out. 
We take an impression of the defects and our laboratory makes ceramic replacements. These are then fused to the remaining natural tooth structure with adhesives.
These teeth are now as strong as natural teeth (sometimes stronger) and were restored in the most conservative manner.

What can I do to ensure I always have good breath? 
.
Aside from not consuming odorous foods like garlic and coffee, the best way to fight bad breath is by brushing after every meal. However, brushing alone often isn't enough. Flossing daily, using a tongue scraper, mouthwash, and getting your teeth professionally cleaned at least twice a year is highly recommended.

Any food particles left on or between your teeth, and even on your tongue can spoil right there, leaving behind some very bad breath.

MATERNAL VITAMIN D LEVELS AND EARLY CHILDHOOD CARIES MAY BE LINKED, RESEARCHERS FIND

Inadequate vitamin D levels in pregnant women may be associated with dental caries in their children during the first year of life, investigators report in a study published online April 21 in Pediatrics.
Researchers from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, administered a prenatal questionnaire to 207 women from an economically disadvantaged urban area. They also drew serum samples and analyzed them for vitamin D levels by means of a 25-hydroxy vitamin D test.

At a mean age of 1 year, 135 infants born to the 133 women who returned for follow-up underwent dental examinations performed by a clinician masked as to their mothers’ vitamin D levels.

The researchers reported that 33 percent of the mothers had deficient vitamin D levels. They found enamel hypoplasia in 22 percent of the infants and cavitated early childhood caries (ECC) in 23 percent of the infants. Mothers of children with ECC had significantly lower prenatal concentrations of vitamin D (P = .05) than mothers of caries-free children.

Prenatal vitamin D levels may have an influence on the primary dentition and development of ECC, the authors wrote. Lower levels were associated with an increased risk of ECC.

This study was supported by the Manitoba Medical Service Foundation, the Manitoba Institute of Child Health, Dentistry Canada Fund and the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Manitoba.
