What is minimally invasive dentistry?
Minimally invasive dentistry is the practice of removing the least amount of tooth structure, bone or tissue necessary to eliminate what is unhealthy and diseased. When replacement is necessary, it is done as conservatively as possible.
 
When should I have my wisdom teeth removed?
The trend today is to leave healthy, stable, wisdom teeth alone and monitor them over the years. However, it is better to remove the partially erupted wisdom teeth as early as possible, as both the surgery and the healing afterward tend to be much easier when the jaw bone is younger.
 
What are the benefits of fluoride?
Community water fluoridation is an effective and safe way to prevent tooth decay, regardless of socioeconomic status. Children and adults at high risk of decay benefit from using additional fluoride products, including dietary supplements, mouth rinses, and home care fluoride tray.
 
What is the connection between diabetes and Periodontal Disease?
Diabetic patients are more likely to develop these types of chronic gum disease, which if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. Tooth loss can make it difficult to chew and digest food; this can have a significant impact on the ability to maintain blood sugar levels. A professional cleaning is necessary to remove plaque from places your toothbrush and floss may have missed.
