Friday, October 6th, 2017

If you feel shy about your smile, you’re among good company: one in four people doesn’t like their smile but many of these people don’t seek out treatments. One reason is that they don’t know enough about the benefits they will receive for the price they pay.

Vegan Diets And Tooth Decay

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Traditional diets are the results of centuries of refinement. They include every nutrient that the body needs. When you go by a diet that’s common in your culture, you get to take for granted that you will get all the nutrients that you need. When you switch to an unfamiliar diet, you lose this assurance. You have no way of knowing what ingredients to include in each recipe to ensure that you get balanced nutrition. When people switch to a mostly plant-based diet, for instance, the diet mistakes they make often result in poor dental health.

What Is the Difference Between a Night Guard Made by a Dentist and the One You Buy in a Store?

Friday, October 6th, 2017

If you grind your teeth at night, you’ve probably been told that you need to wear a night guard that will protect your teeth from damage. It’s important to realize that different kinds of night guards perform better than others, particularly the ones made by a professional dentist, which are customized to fit well. Therefore, you should make your choice with that in mind. Over-the-counter ones do not always fit well, and they don’t last as long as one made by a dentist. In fact, an over-the-counter version might last 3 months, whereas a customized one can last as long as 3 years.
