Implant or a Bridge for Single Tooth Replacement?

» 06 April 2012 » In Dental Implants, Dental News, Teeth Health » Comments Off on Implant or a Bridge for Single Tooth Replacement?

When missing a tooth, which would you choose….a dental implant or a dental bridge?  For many years fixed or permanent bridges were used to replace missing anterior or posterior teeth.  Today, dental implants are the first choice when discussing tooth replacement.  By using implants the adjacent teeth on either side of the space are not affected.  “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it” applies very well in this situation.  When using a bridge, typically the adjacent teeth must be “cut” or prepared so that they may be used as abutments or “anchor” teeth for the missing tooth.  Many times the adjacent teeth may be totally healthy and therefore no dental reason why they would be included in the facilitation of making the bridge.

Implant procedures for single teeth would not include the adjacent teeth at all.  Basically, the area of the missing tooth is the only consideration.  An implant is placed in the area where the tooth is needed without touching the adjacent teeth.  An abutment and crown is then placed on the implant and the procedure is complete.

Implants work very well within the mouth and serve as excellent solutions to replacing missing teeth.  Implants have a longevity when planned and completed by competent dental professionals.  Bridges may have worked well in the past  but today dental implants are one’s first choice when discussing choices for tooth replacement.

Tooth Discoloration / Stained Teeth / Dark Teeth

» 02 April 2012 » In Dental News, Teeth Health, Teeth Whitening » Comments Off on Tooth Discoloration / Stained Teeth / Dark Teeth

Tooth discoloration is a common issue that all dental office’s encounter.  Typically, patients will present with questions about their smile and will ask  “Why are my teeth darker in color?.  Most of the time people will be inquiring about their anterior or front teeth as they are the most visible when smiling. Professional teeth whitening is a simple and painless process that can resolve this predicament.

There are many different reasons why teeth may discolor.  Reasons may either be intrinsic, or “within” the tooth structure or extrinsic, “outside staining” of the enamel of the tooth.  A dentist can usually determine which type of discoloration a person may have after an examination of the teeth.  There are many and varied causes of discoloration, both intrinsic and extrinsic.  Many of these issues can be eliminated or at least reduced after visiting a dentist. Our Dallas TX Dental Office is proud to offer a full selection of Cosmetic Dental services to help combat any cosmetic issue.

The Benefits of Chewing Sugar Free Gum

» 28 February 2012 » In Dental News, Teeth Health » Comments Off on The Benefits of Chewing Sugar Free Gum

Dallas, Texas dentist, William H. Miller, discusses the dental health benefits of chewing sugar free gum after eating a meal

Keep Teeth Healthy With Gum | Arlington Texas DentistA memorable movie scene is found in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, when champion chewer Violet Beauregarde eats the forbidden piece of gum and then swells up to giant, blueberry-like proportions as a result. While the dangers of gum chewing outside of Willy Wonka’s world don’t include turning into a blueberry, sugar found in many brands of gum can be dangerous (to your dental enamel, not your human appearance). Thankfully there is the option of sugar-free gum for those that have a bit of Violet Beauregarde in them, and this sort of gum is not only safe for enamel but even includes health benefits.

Teeth Need a Good Cleaning After Meals

When a meal is over, tiny bits of food cling stubbornly to the teeth and if left unchecked the starches and sugars will assist bacteria in the mouth with multiplying and coating enamel with plaque. Although initially soft and easy to remove, plaque can harden into tartar after only a matter of days and is then so cemented that it cannot be removed except by a visit to the dentist’s office. In order to avoid such a condition, it is best to brush one’s teeth soon after eating to be sure all food is eliminated. Since a toothbrush and toothpaste aren’t always on hand, sometimes it’s necessary to turn to chewing gum to save the day!

Comparing Composite (White) and Amalgam (Silver) Fillings

» 10 January 2012 » In Dental News, Teeth Health, Teeth Whitening » Comments Off on Comparing Composite (White) and Amalgam (Silver) Fillings

Keep Your Teeth Healthy and Your Enamel White by Understanding the Difference Between Composite and Amalgam Fillings

Composite white teeth fillings for cavities by dentist in Arlington Texas, William Miller However conscientiously a person may care for their teeth, sometimes cavities do happen, and a visit to the dentist for a filling brings up the question: Which type of filling, amalgam (silver) or composite (white) is best for the tooth? Because composite fillings tended to be more expensive than amalgam fillings and often health insurance wouldn’t cover the cost, a person faced with the choice would choose silver fillings out of necessity. After reviewing the options with an experienced Dallas, Texas dentist, Dr. William H. Miller, it was explained that times have changed since composite fillings were first introduced. Now that more research has been done on the benefits of composite filling and its use is widespread, it is more affordable and often covered by health insurance. Choosing between an amalgam and composite filling no longer has to be based on affordability, but rather on health, efficiency, and cosmetic appeal.
