Teeth discoloration is a condition that cannot be removed by regular brushing alone. Most of the time, the stains have made their way too deep into the enamel where a brush’s bristle may fail to reach. With teeth whitening procedures done by a skilled Denver dentist, these stains won’t have anywhere to hide. A professional dentist will likely have plenty of teeth whitening tools in his arsenal, but arguably the best method he can use is laser teeth whitening. Laser teeth whitening uses hydrogen peroxide gel applied on the teeth and a special beam of laser light to activate it. The result is a faster and more effective whitening system. Laser teeth whitening procedures are done at the dental office and can be completed in 90 minutes or less.

As the child grows older, the dentist might recommend treatments that will help prevent future problems. For instance, pediatric orthodontic evaluation should be done as early as possible. Both the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommend taking your child to an orthodontist within six months after the first tooth erupts, or by his first birthday, whichever comes first. A trusted Denver orthodontist can detect concerns affecting the growth of permanent teeth, and address them early. For example, early detection and treatment of teeth overcrowding can minimize the need for permanent teeth extraction later on.

Some of the things to avoid after a dental implant procedure: don’t smoke, spit, or suck on straws because these activities can dislodge blood clots and slow your recovery. Also, don’t brush or floss the implant area for the next week or two. Instead, use antibacterial mouthwash to keep that portion clean. Make sure to eat only soft foods to avoid gum injury. Dental Evaluation Before you can undergo a dental implant procedure though, your dentist must first confirm that you’re a good candidate for it. Visit a Denver dentist for an evaluation.

The absence of even one tooth could make it difficult to enunciate words; even more so when several teeth are missing. Missing teeth can cause a lisp or change the sound of your voice. Dental implants are a better solution than dentures if you want to regain your proper ability to speak. With dentures, you may struggle to pronounce everyday words, but this isn’t the case with dental implants because they function just like natural teeth. Strong, steady, and reliable dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth. With proper care, you can enjoy all these implant-related benefits for a lifetime and need not worry at all about your teeth. Schedule a consultation with a Denver dentist, such as Dr. Charles F. Reed of Cody Dental Group, to know if you are a good candidate for dental implants and how it can benefit you.
