Dental appointments are necessary because they help your dentist to detect cavities (tooth decay) early. Your dentist will examine your teeth for cavities while they are still small. Cavities are less expensive to treat the sooner you catch them.
We suggest changing your toothbrush –– or toothbrush head for electric brushes –– every three months.
Gum discomfort could be caused by brushing your teeth too forcefully or using a toothbrush with harsh bristles. Because your gums are formed of tissue, they can become damaged and unpleasant to the touch if they are irritated repeatedly.
Plaque is formed when bacteria, acid, food waste, and saliva combine to adhere to the teeth. Plaque acids eat away at the enamel surface of the teeth, causing cavities. To avoid tooth decay, follow these steps: Brush your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day.
X-rays allow a dentist to assess a patient's oral health and uncover underlying concerns with the teeth, jaw, and soft tissues of the mouth. They are completely safe.
At Millennium Smiles, we suggest those with braces visit the dentists more often.
Enamel is the most durable tissue in the human body. Enamel consists of small tubules that can only be seen under a microscope, and teeth whitening will not damage it.
Teeth whitening can last for up to two years or as little as six months. It differs from one person to the next, depending on lifestyle choices such as smoking.
There are several cosmetic services Millennium Smiles offers that improve your smile. This includes dental implants, crowns, teeth whitening, and clear aligners.
