Breakfast is often described as the most important meal of the day, because of its ability to fuel you with energy to make it to lunchtime. However, breakfast can play a big role in the health of your family's teeth, too. Here's what you might be doing wrong that can have negative effects on everyone in your home.
Timing Morning Brushing
Chances are that you've been told by your dentist that you should ideally brush your teeth twice a day; once in the morning, and once at night before bed, or after dinner.
Most people grow up without any significant difficulties with their baby teeth. When things work normally, baby teeth fall out and the adult teeth move in shortly after, taking up the spot where the baby tooth used to be. However, if you've noticed that your child seems to have a tooth breaking through directly behind, in front of, or otherwise occupying space that the baby tooth is already using, this could indicate that a problem is going on.
Holistic health care is a type of health care that focuses on the overall wellness of a person's entire body. This type of care is based on the idea that the human body is a complex set of interconnected systems. Holistic health care can even extend into the realm of dentistry. Some people prefer to seek holistic dentistry services instead of more traditional dental care.
If you're interested in natural health care, then holistic dentistry services may be a good choice for you.
Are you afraid to smile because you have a tooth or two missing? If so, you are definitely not alone. Many adults are in the same boat. Missing teeth can have a direct impact on your self-esteem, but it can also result in oral health and overall health issues. The good news is that it is possible to revitalize your smile using dental implants. Implants offer a long-term solution for missing teeth.
Your teeth are much more than the enamel layer that you see when you look at the outside of a tooth. Inside every tooth is a nerve. And just like the nerves in other parts of your body, these nerves transmit pain signals and other sensations to your brain. The enamel layer of your teeth protects these nerves.
Unfortunately, when tooth decay and acid erosion damage the enamel layer of a tooth, the nerve inside that tooth no longer has any protection.
