As we get older suddenly we realised many things we didn't appreciate about being young - being fit, having smooth skin and having all your own teeth. As our loose teeth (and bridges) struggle to deal with chewier food we start eating bland mush and, there is no easy way to say this, OLD PEOPLE FOOD. I'm determined not to let that happen to me and I'm doing everything I can to keep my own teeth as long as possible, and when that's not possible to get the best possible teeth replacement. If you are like me and want to keep on eating whatever you want, I think you'll like my site. It's all about dental health and teeth replacement & maintenance.

Root canal or endodontic treatment is a necessary dental procedure that aims at saving the tooth and relieving pain that may be associated with the tooth infection. The process is also vital in preventing bone loss in the affected tooth area. It is prescribed by a dentist if a tooth's pulp and nerve become inflamed, irritated or even infected. The process entails cleaning the interior part of the tooth, drying it and placing a filling.

If you have multiple missing teeth and are looking for a cost-efficient alternative to replacing them, then dentures make a good option for you. Dentures can restore your chewing capacity, and they help in preventing any speech impediments that may come about due to the missing teeth. Since these make an excellent substitute for your real teeth, then that means that you can sleep with dentures occasionally, right? Wrong. Dentists recommend taking these teeth replacements out when you go to bed so that you are not risking your health.

Have your teeth become worn down over time due to bruxism? If so, you need to take swift action to repair the damage and, if possible, identify the cause. In fact, not dealing with the cause of your bruxism may result in any restorations you might have done today becoming damaged tomorrow. Thus, you should work with your doctor and your dentist to first pinpoint the cause and then repair the damage.

When it comes to cosmetic dental makeovers, porcelain veneers are at the pinnacle of dentistry. They are also not cheap. Treat them well and you could get 15 years out of them, maybe more. However, if you smoke cigarettes and drink coffee, you may be worried about what this might do to your veneers. You needn't worry in this regard because veneers don't stain like natural teeth. Despite that, there are still some measures that you can take to ensure that your porcelain veneers retain their glossy, white finish.

When an adult loses a tooth, it's quite a nuisance. Dentists recommend implants to replace missing teeth, but many adults resist this recommendation unless it involves the visible front teeth. Cost is the main reason why you want to delay having dental implants at the moment, but this delay puts you at risk of a condition called Alveolar Atrophy. Before you pause implants for too long, you need to know what oral damage you are exposing yourself to.
