Smile makeover for best smile

Posted on 4/25/2022 by Life Long Dental
Many patients who come to our practice always report that they have anxiety when talking in public due to the poor state of their dental health. Missing teeth, stained teeth, gummy smiles, and misaligned teeth are some of the causes of people not being able to produce a perfect smile. It is therefore vital that you come to our practice to receive the best dental care that can improve your smile. Several treatment options guarantee a smile make-over for you. Dental Implants Dental implants are an excellent solution if you have missing teeth. Dental implants replace missing or extracted teeth and ensure that you do not have gaps along with your dental structure. You will therefore be able to smile showcasing a complete set of white teeth. Dental implants act, feel and resemble natural teeth, and your family or friends might be unable to notice them. Teeth Whitening Stained teeth are a major hindrance to a bright smile. At our practice, we use modern techniques and treatments to whiten and lighten your teeth for a bright smile. When you have whiter teeth you will have public confidence and this brightens your smile. Veneer Placement Veneers are an excellent solution if you want to improve the appearance of your teeth. They are thin personalized tooth-colored materials placed on the front surface of teeth. They can change the size, length, and color of your teeth to significantly improve your smile. You can have veneers that look like your natural teeth making you appear better. At our practice, we have cosmetic dentists who have many years of experience improving the smiles of patients. Call to book an appointment and consult with our specialists. You will find a dedicated team of specialists who focus on improving your smile for a confident look....

Is gum chewing safe for the mouth?

Posted on 4/11/2022 by Life Long Dental
Chewing gum is healthy for the teeth as long as the gum is not sugary. Chewing gum has health benefits to the teeth and you will have strong jaws as you chew gum. Our dentist will teach you on health benefits of chewing gum. Xylitol for the teeth Xylitol is a natural sweetener found in chewing gums and it helps in the prevention of cavities. The xylitol helps in neutralizing acid that erodes the teeth' enamel and it keeps the enamel stronger. Ensure that you get sugarless gum so that you will not have dental cavities. Always read the package when you are purchasing gum to ensure that you get the right gum for the teeth. Bad breath When you chew sugar-free gum the teeth will be protected and you will not have cavities. Sugar feeds bad bacteria in the mouth and this is why you need to eat sugar-free gum. Chewing gum is good for the teeth and will keep away the bad bacteria that cause the bad breath in the mouth. When you have halitosis this can be because of the accumulation of food particles that have not been cleaned for long. They cause the tooth to decay and you will have bad breath. When you chew gum you produce a lot of saliva that washes away the food particles in the mouth hence reducing bad breath. Our dental team will ensure that you know what gum to chew so that you have a healthy and fresh mouth....

Dental care for baby teeth and gums?

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Life Long Dental
A cavity is a hole formed in the mouth. There are many ways children can develop cavities, which means parents need to take extra measures to ensure this doesn't happen. Consulting an expert goes a long way in ensuring the right steps to prevent cavities in children. Caring for baby's teeth and gums The gum should be cleaned with a gauze pad to remove the plaque before the teeth come in. It should be done after birth until the teeth come in. The toothbrush should be changed after every three months. Ensure to floss when the teeth start to touch. As the child`s caregiver, avoid having mouth contact with the kid as saliva contains bacteria easily shared with the child. Keep your mouth healthy to reduce the transfer of bacteria to prevent other general body diseases. The diet should be healthy for older babies and should contain less sugar. The food should be rich in calcium. The food should be nutritious and have a combination that reduces the risk of cavities. At the age of 12 months, bottle feeding with high sugar liquids may lead to cavities; a bottle full of plain water when the child is asleep. Have an open cup for a child to play with within the daytime. Optimum levels of fluoride should be added to the water. The fluoride helps in strengthening the enamel preventing cavities. When a child sleeps with food or a feeding bottle in the mouth, it could lead to exposure to sugars and acidity, which can cause tooth decay and other oral diseases. It is advisable to schedule regular appointments with a dental professional to ensure the cleaning routine you are using is effective. It also protects the child from future complications affecting their oral health....
