Take Good Care Of Your Smile By Taking Care Of Your Gums

A mouth that is cavity-free is not always a mouth that could be considered problem-free. If you have poor gum health, you face a potentially serious issue. If gum disease has the opportunity to worsen, you can develop problems with dental support, and suffer tooth loss later in life. Your dentist will take time during a regular dental visit to check on the condition of your periodontal tissue. However, you can also keep an eye out for potential problems. Look out for gums that appear swollen or red, and be mindful of sensitivity. If you find yourself bleeding more easily when you brush, this can also be a sign of trouble. (more…)

Your Experience With Dental Fillings

When a cavity forms on your tooth, your dentist can put an end to it by removing the infected area. Once this is accomplished, your tooth will be in need of support, as your enamel will not be able to repair itself against the damage done by a cavity.
