Periodontal Disease - silent and deadly
Periodontal disease can go on for years without detection .This infection slowly progresses over the life time destroying the bony support of the teeth. Because of the lack of any discomfort, many adults are unaware that they have infection. The damage caused is irreversible. Some signs of periodontal diseases are: bleeding gums, redness of gum tissue, swelling of gums around the teeth, breath odor, receding gums, mobility of teeth.

Accidental tooth loss
If the tooth is loose even extremely so, leave it in the place. If it is out of its socket completely but still in the mouth, it is best to attempt re-implantation If it is out of the mouth, do not let it dry out. Rinse it off in milk or lukewarm water .Preserve it in milk. Call dental office. Time out of the socket is critical in the long -term success of re-implantation. After 30 minutes, the success potential begins to decline.
Tooth bleaching involves the placement of the bleaching solution on the teeth to eliminate stains and discoloration. Sensitive teeth, or those that are chipped, eroded or weakened by cavities, should be repaired or protected before they are bleached. Bleaching is safe and effective .The American Dental Association's seal of approval has been given to wide range of tooth whitening products.
Why have dental crowns?

What are dentures?
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures replace only few missing teeth. Complete dentures replace a complete set of missing teeth. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. Over-denture fits over small number of remaining natural teeth or implants.
