Denture Repair: Home Remedies and More
When it comes to achieving a straighter smile, invisible braces such as Invisalign have become a popular choice among individuals seeking orthodontic treatment. Unlike traditional braces, invisible braces are discreet and easily removable, making them a convenient and attractive option for many. However, before deciding to get invisible braces, some important considerations must be remembered. This post explores these considerations to help you make an informed choice for your dental health.
Toothaches are some of the most excruciating pains that anyone can experience. Unfortunately, tooth pain and dental emergencies can happen at any time. Not all dental problems require an emergency dentist, but there are some situations where you need to seek immediate dental attention. This blog post discusses five different times you might need an emergency dentist.
If you lose a tooth due to an accident or injury, it requires immediate attention from a qualified dental professional.
A bright and beautiful smile can light up a room and boost your confidence. If you're not happy with your teeth and you're hesitant to smile, it might be time to consider cosmetic dentistry. But how exactly can they help?
One of the easier and most practical cosmetic dentistry procedures is teeth whitening. If you have yellow stains on your teeth from coffee or smoking, or if your teeth are just naturally discoloured, a cosmetic dentist can help.
When a tooth fails to properly break through the gums, it is referred to as 'impacted'. This is something many people associate with wisdom teeth, which tend to come through in early adulthood, but children can also suffer from impacted teeth as their permanent teeth come through.
There are several reasons why this might happen, and the issue can be painful. Your dentist can perform an examination and take some x-rays to check if a tooth is impacted and assess treatment options, but it often helps to learn the common signs a child might have an impacted tooth so you can take them to the dentist as soon as possible.
After successfully completing root canal treatment at your local dental centre, you probably won't think about the affected tooth much further. After all, the infected dental pulp (the tooth's nerve) was removed, ending your discomfort and risk of further infection. The tooth has been cured and shouldn't bother you any further—until it does, in an unexpected way. Although your treated tooth may feel fine, why has it darkened?
