Questions About Clear Aligners?

Do you have questions about Clear Aligners? They have become a very popular option since they were invented in 1997. They are a fantastic option for people who don't want to wear traditional metal braces, or for someone who already had traditional braces and their teeth have since shifted. Some consider it more convenient and a lot less uncomfortable. Clear aligners show off your smile, so most people won't even notice you are wearing them.   How long does treatment take?    This varies from patient to patient. Treatment can take anywhere from a...

As I sit here now with these horrible cold sores wreaking havoc on my lips, I think to myself why me? But the truth is, millions of us suffer from these embarrassing sores.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?

A smile is such a wonderful thing.  An important part of having a great smile is strong, healthy teeth that you can keep for a lifetime. But let's be honest, most of us are not born with those perfect, glorious Hollywood smiles you see on tv.   Millions of people suffer from tooth loss, most of which is caused from tooth decay, injury, or periodontal disease. Back in the old days, options were limited to bulky dentures, partials and bridges.  We all know the story of George Washington and those "wooden teeth". Dentistry...

But, just because your parents have dentures, doesn’t mean that you will too! You can prevent bad teeth. Environmental influences can have the greatest impact on your teeth and...

The Popcorn Effect

We all love going to see a great movie, and of course you love that buttery tub of popcorn that must accompany it…but what we don’t love are those pesky popcorn hulls!   Popcorn is so yummy and can actually be a healthy snack if you don’t drown it in butter and salt (but c’mon really).  However, the hulls have been known to cause many a problem in people’s mouths. Because the popcorn hull is concave in shape, it makes it easy to get trapped under the gums or between the teeth....
