Thursday, September 3, 2015 I Am Thirty Now -When Do I Need Dentures? Believe it or not I actually had a patient ask me that question. Dentistry has changed so much even since I graduated from dental school thirty years ago. Now we can save teeth when pulling them was all you could do not so many years ago. They have implants that can replace teeth and feel like you grew them back! We know so much about gum disease that it can be slowed down and even reversed in some cases. Fluoride in the water and toothpaste can reduce and eliminate decay which is the most common disease in the world! Bonding can reshape or add to make the teeth longer, shorter, wider, bigger, smaller, lighten or darken the color. Crowns can be made that match or improve the looks of and be stronger than the original tooth! Root canals are done most often painlessly in one visit. Oral cancer exams can save your life!

That is just a little of all the great things I saw in Dentistry so, If we see...

Are you lying to your dentist about flossing and dental hygiene habits? You are not alone. A new national survey conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) shows it does.For instance, while more than a quarter of adults surveyed said they lied to their dentists about how often they floss their teeth, those who live in Atlanta (82 percent) are more likely to be honest about how often they floss. Could that be Southern manners at play?Conversely, one...
