Are you Missing Teeth? Is it Time for Dental Implant Surgery?

Having one or more missing teeth is stressful in more ways than one. First, there are the possible difficulties of chewing, drinking, speaking, and smiling. Second, there is the mental health toll of embarrassment and shame that comes from hiding your smile while avoiding face-to-face conversations. Third, there is a cost component to consider regarding your budget. If you’re missing one or more teeth and are tired of hiding your smile and avoiding certain foods, you’re likely ready for a dental implant.

Tooth Restoration Starts with a Dental Visit

Our teeth are one of the most used portions of our bodies. We use them every day to eat food, for speech, and when we smile.

Good Dental Hygiene Prevents Cavities and Tooth Loss

Functioning healthy teeth are often taken for granted. Despite many parent’s best efforts, it can be hard to instill good dental hygiene habits in their children. “Brush twice a day for at least two minutes“, is the popular phrase, but try doing that with a 2, 4, and 6-year-old day in and day out and see how strict you are on those 2 minutes!   If you don’t have good dental hygiene habits and don’t visit the dentist, you are at risk of bad breath and cavities. Those surely sound bad but are minimal in terms of costs, discomfort, oral pain,...

Traumatic Dental Injuries Require Dental Treatment

Traumatic Dental Injuries

Dislodged Teeth Injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to be pushed back into their sockets. If the tooth is pushed partially out of the socket, your dentist may re-position and stabilize your tooth. If the pulp remains healthy, then no other treatment is necessary. However, if the pulp becomes damaged or infected, root canal treatment will be required. Root canal treatment is usually started within a few weeks of the injury and a medication, such as calcium hydroxide, will be placed inside the tooth. Eventually, a permanent root canal filling will be placed and the canal will be sealed....

Toothaches are painful and easily treatable by your dentist


A “toothache” is pain typically around a tooth, teeth or jaws.

The pain may be aggravated by chewing or by thermal foods and liquids which are cold or hot....
