Mouthguards protect the teeth from injury during contact sports. Most commonly used in boxing and football, mouth guards can also provide protection in a variety of other sports such as soccer, basketball, lacrosse, hockey, etc.
Your smile is the most eye-catching feature on your face. Most of the time it’s the first and the last thing people see and notice. Dentistry has advanced to such superior standards that you no longer have to settle for stained, misshapen, or chipped teeth.
Implants are a superior method of choice to replace missing teeth without altering the adjacent teeth as in bridges. Implants can also be used to retain loose and mobile dentures. They also have much greater longevity and success rate than bridges or partials. The success rate is reported at 95% (Int Jrn of Oral Max Implants 2007 Nov-Dec).
What is the appropriate age to start seeing the dentist? The sooner, the better. Often, age 1 is when a child can watch their parents or older siblings get a simple cleaning. An easy visit to the office is important, so the child understands that a check-up with the dentist can be easy and fun.
