What Is That Scraping Noise During Dental Cleanings?
(http://ow.ly/IcSx30nvehU)

Removing tartar from the surface of your teeth requires the use of a small metal tool called a scalar. During a cleaning, your dental hygienist carefully addresses tartar build-up from between your teeth and off the edges of your gum line. You may notice a scraping sound, but this is nothing to worry about. Areas with high levels of plaque build-up will require more scraping than others, but most cleanings are complete within 45 minutes to an hour.

When was the last time you had a professional dental cleaning? If you don't know the answer, contact The Dental Way today; the health of your teeth and gums depends on it.

Gum Disease Only Causes Bad Breath, Right?
(http://ow.ly/eOlw30nvehT)

Wrong. Gum disease is a serious health problem that can cause your teeth to loosen or fall out. In addition, a growing body of evidence suggests individuals with gum disease are at a higher risk of heart disease and certain types of cancer.

How Common Are Dental Implants?
(http://ow.ly/HZvE30nvehR)

Thanks to their durability and ability to mimic your natural, permanent teeth, dental implants are becoming increasingly popular. In fact, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates 3 million Americans are living with dental implants and that number grows by approximately 500,000 individuals every year.

If you're missing one or multiple teeth, dental implants can restore your confidence and smile. At The Dental Way, our team regularly assists patients in this effort. Call today to request a consultation.

How Often Will I Need to Change My Invisalign Aligners?
(http://ow.ly/gr7q30nvehQ)

At the beginning, you'll need to change out your Invisalign aligners every one or two weeks, as prescribed by your dentist. However, as you get further along in your treatment, appointments will be spread out every six to eight weeks. In a relatively short period of time, you'll notice major changes in your smile.

At The Dental Way team is proud to offer Invisalign treatments to teens and adults alike!

When Should My Child First Visit the Dentist?
(http://ow.ly/Eqta30nvehO)

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends all children visit the dentist by age one or within six months of their first tooth erupting. As soon as your child's first tooth comes in, you'll want to start brushing and flossing right away.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
(http://ow.ly/8YuB30nvehL)

Friendly affection doesn’t have to be so sugar-coated! Rather than giving boxes of chocolates or sugary treats to your loved ones, try gifting heart healthy options, like fresh fruits. Spread the love this Valentine’s Day by celebrating heart health and vitality.

Do Dental Implants Help Preserve The Jaw?
(http://ow.ly/9Rx630nvehJ)

Yes. In fact, dental implants are the only type of cosmetic dentistry proven to preserve natural bone. Not only that, but they can even stimulate bone growth. If you have a healthy jaw and no history of gum disease, dental implants may be right for you.

If You Experience Tooth Pain, Don't "Wait It Out"
(http://ow.ly/c3Np30nvehI)

Tooth pain can strike at any time, making it difficult to chew, speak, or yawn. While it might be tempting to "wait it out" and see if the pain subsides, it's better to schedule an appointment with a dentist right away. Left untreated, infected tooth pulp can lead to serious problems including tooth loss.
