Can Cavities Be Reversed?
(http://ow.ly/VRPp30n1e5G)

It depends. If your dentist catches a cavity in its earliest stages, a professional in-office fluoride treatment may be able to stop the decay from getting worse. However, fluoride isn't a cure-all for tooth decay or other serious oral health problems. The best thing you can do to prevent issues like these is to brush and floss on a daily basis.

Does Banana Peel Teeth Whitening Work?
(http://ow.ly/GeZs30n1e5F)

No. There is no scientific evidence that suggests rubbing the inside of a banana peel against the surface of your teeth will make them whiter. That being said, if you dream of having a whiter, brighter smile there are an array of in-office teeth whitening treatments as well as over-the-counter strips and take home whitening trays.

What Is Gingivitis?
(http://ow.ly/lNYD30n1e5C)

Gingivitis is the most basic form of gum disease. Telltale symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen, and irritated gums; bleeding during brushing and flossing; and bad breath. The easiest and most effective way to counter gingivitis is to practice good oral hygiene.

Does My Diet Impact My Oral Health?
(http://ow.ly/cdW830n1e5B)

Yes. Eating a healthy, well-balanced diet ensures your body accesses the vitamins, nutrients, and minerals it needs to thrive. Whenever you eat or drink sugary or starchy foods, the bacteria in your mouth produce acids that attack your enamel for up to 20 minutes. Over the years, this can take a significant toll on the appearance and quality of your permanent teeth. While there's nothing wrong with splurging every once in a while, primarily stick to fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins.

Are There Certain Factors That Increase My Risk of Gum Disease?
(http://ow.ly/ut9D30n1e5z)

Yes. While gum disease can affect anyone, there are certain habits and factors that can increase your risk of a problem. For example, if you're over the age of 65, you're more likely to suffer from gum disease than someone who is younger. Research shows almost 70% of individuals over 65 have some type of gum disease. Other contributing factors include smoking cigarettes, having a family history of gum disease, and certain prescription medications.

How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?
(http://ow.ly/H3mG30n1e5A)

You care for your dental implants just like you would your natural teeth. Brush and floss them twice each day, and visit the dentist once every six months for an oral exam and professional cleaning. Additionally, you may want to avoid drinking beverages that stain like coffee or red wine; this will ensure your implants stay shiny and white for years to come.

At Gateway Dental, Dr. Calabria and Dr. Ellis offers an array of cosmetic dentistry services including dental implants. Following a thorough exam and review of your medical history Dr. Calabria and Dr. Ellis can determine the course of treatment that will best meet your needs.

How Much Do Veneers Cost?
(http://ow.ly/2j7M30n1e5y)

The cost of your veneers will depend on where you live, how many teeth are being treated, and what type of results you're trying to achieve. In most cases, veneers cost between $1,000 and $2,000 per tooth. While most insurance companies do not cover dental veneers, every provider is different.

If you're missing teeth or have crooked or discolored teeth, veneers can restore your smile to a more aesthetically pleasing condition. Contact Dr. Calabria and Dr. Ellis at Gateway Dental to schedule a consultation today.

Is It Better To Have Your Tooth Pulled Than It Is To Undergo A Root Canal?
(http://ow.ly/LrOS30n1e5w)

No. It it all possible, it's better to save your permanent teeth. While artificial teeth may be able to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile, nothing can mimic the durability or quality of your natural teeth. At Gateway Dental, Dr. Calabria and Dr. Ellis regularly performs root canals in an effort to save patients' teeth and in turn, their overall oral hygiene.
