Researchers from New York University announced that the majority of people who are suffering from periodontal disease are also exposed to high risk of developing diabetes. In line with this, they suggest that dentists should consider conducting diabetes screening.

Did you know that the average cost of filling a tooth cavity detected early runs at around $200? Imagine the things you can buy with a cool $200 instead spending it on your teeth when you could have prevented those cavities. But if left untreated, that $200 cost could increase up to $2,000 for a root canal treatment.

Sometimes dental pain occurs when a tooth fails to emerge and develop normally. It may not surface on its ideal position or it could remain stuck under the gums. This condition usually happens in the case of impacted wisdom teeth—the gums become swollen and inflamed, causing severe discomfort and, in some cases, infection.

There are a lot of factors that cause halitosis or, as it is commonly known, bad breath. Among these factors include eating foods containing garlic or onions. Even if you brush or floss right after eating them, the odor won't totally go away. You'll just have to wait until the food passes through your system.

Dental bridges are used to fill the gap created when one is missing one or more teeth. Traditionally, dentists create false tooth/teeth and use it to bridge the gap between teeth. An example of a dental bridge is the Maryland bonded bridge—it consists of a set of plastic teeth and gums attached to a metal framework.

When you're missing a tooth, this naturally results in a gap between teeth. Generally, these gaps are filled using false teeth. But in some instances where there are teeth on only one side of the open space, a cantilever bridge is used.

Do you know what an impacted wisdom tooth is? This condition occurs when the third molars (commonly known as wisdom teeth) emerge and grow at the back of the mouth but don't have enough room to develop normally. This is usually painful and could result in damage to the other teeth.

Could your toothbrush be causing you dental problems? Your toothbrush is home to over 100 million bacteria. And since you're putting it in your mouth on a regular basis, it's likely that the bacteria could move into your mouth. Luckily, we have our immune system to fight diseases, which can be caused by these bacteria.

Dentures are removable prosthodontic appliances that act as a replacement for missing teeth and their surrounding gums or tissues. There are two types of dentures: complete dentures (used when all teeth are missing) and partial dentures (when some of the natural teeth still remain).

If you think teeth discoloration is permanent, think again. Getting rid of teeth stains due to cigarettes or coffee is easy. There are lots of teeth-whitening products available like toothpaste, gels, strips, etc. For hard-to-remove stains, you can visit your dentist to have your healthy-looking white teeth restored.
