Healthy Hygiene, Healthy Heart?

Believe it or not, how you take care of your teeth affects not only your oral health, but may well affect your heart health, too. Although scientists are not certain of the precise relationship between the heart and oral hygiene, studies consistently demonstrate a link between the two. It's possible that a mouth filled with bacteria and their toxins allows a continuous stream of poisons to enter the system.

Providing restoration with a sure foundation

Sometimes, permanent teeth are lost due to accident, injury, disease or extraction. In such cases, dental implants may be considered as a secure, functional replacement option because they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Permanently, surgically anchored to the jawbone as tooth root substitutes, implants restore normal eating ability, provide face muscle support, and prevent jawbone atrophy. Implants are tiny posts, made of either a metallic or bone-like ceramic material. One variety is inserted into the jawbone below the gum surface, at the location of the missing tooth.

Strong, beautiful porcelain veneers can transform your smile into a work of art. These thin, semitranslucent shells are bonded to the front of your teeth to close gaps and mask stains, chips, cracks, or other damage. They resist stains better than natural teeth and with proper care can last for years.

To design your dental veneers, we will evaluate your facial features, symmetry, skin tone, then listen to your goals and expectations.

Get Them Radically Clean with Rota-dent ®

Most of our patients know we're big advocates of excellent home hygiene habits. And one of the best bits of advice we can give is to invest in the right tools to do that job well. Like the Rota-dent battery-powered toothbrush. Why is it better than a regular brush? Well, remember that your mouth is continually supplied with oral bacteria. Bacteria deposit plaque on your teeth that, left untouched, hardens into calculus or tartar. Tartar irritates the gums, initiating the process of gum disease.
