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.

While consulting your dentist is a good step in the right direction when it comes to properly whitening your teeth, there are a number of other useful things to know to make combating yellow teeth easier.

When recovering from an addiction, it's important to remain vigilant, even when it comes to prescribed medication. Opiate pain relief is often given by dentists following procedures like wisdom tooth extraction. While this medication is useful in treating pain, it also comes with the risk of triggering a relapse in recovering addicts. Talking to your dentist about your history beforehand will allow them to recommend non-narcotic pain solutions that won't threaten your sobriety.

A dental crown is a tooth covering used to restore the natural shape of broken or damaged teeth. It is typically placed over the residual part of a natural tooth, giving it a fuller appearance. Besides aesthetics, a crown helps the wearer to bite and chew with relative ease and comfort. Temporary crowns, in particular, are only as reliable as how well you take care of them. Neglect them or use them improperly and they will not serve you well.

No health concern should be ignored, especially if you suspect it's an emergency, and problems with your teeth, jaw, and gums are no exception. However, it's not unusual for someone to wait to see the dentist until their next routine appointment, even if they have severe pain or other symptoms of a dental emergency; they may simply not like visiting the dentist or may not realize that something is urgent and can't wait.

Not all problems with your mouth and teeth mean that you need to see an emergency dentist; some problems can wait until your next appointment while some are more urgent and should be taken care of sooner rather than waiting for that appointment, but they aren't necessarily emergencies. That being said, you never want to overlook signs that you need to see an emergency dentist as soon as possible. Note a few of those signs here.
