Teenagers are often self conscious about their bodies as they begin to mature. They start to notice 'flaws' within themselves, such as their hair color being too dull, their skin being too pimply, or their teeth being too off-colored or even crooked. When your growing child begins expressing a dislike for their smile you can find ways to give them the confidence they need by bringing the subject up with their dentist at their regular checkups and cleanings.
Whiter teeth are desired by many people, and some people even have an obsession with getting their teeth whiter. If you have severely discolored and stained teeth, you may feel that a sparkling smile is out of reach. The following are a few ways you could attain beautiful "pearly whites."
This is an option that can be done at home or in a dentist office. Dentists can provide proper fitting trays and the whitening solution for at home use.
If you want to make a change for the better this year, a great place to start is with your teeth. Improving your dental care is one of the fastest, easiest ways to improve your health because the steps are so small and the results so apparent. Building upon already established habits is a good way to start upping that dental game.
Switch to a Non-Alcohol Mouthwash
If you currently use a mouthwash that contains alcohol, try switching to one that does not contain alcohol.
The amalgam used to fill cavities in teeth can deteriorate over time and allow bacteria to get into the tooth. The bacteria will eat away at the tooth and will eventually cause the deterioration to worsen to the point that the tooth will break apart and crumble. To avoid losing the tooth, a dentist will clean out the cavity in the tooth and rebuild it with a composite resin that looks and feels like real tooth bone.
You can't get a cavity in a dental implant, but that doesn't mean that you can stop caring for your teeth completely. Proper oral hygiene habits need to continue if you want to keep your remaining teeth, but proper care also protects your implants. Because your implants are fused directly into your jaw, you care for them as you would your natural teeth — for the most part. You just need to make a few adjustments to your normal routine.
