At Felton Dental Care, we hope you never experience a serious dental emergency. It’s important, however, to know what to do in such a situation. Here is a quiz on dental emergencies and less urgent oral issues.
What is a smile makeover? Is is a combination of procedures that remedy any problems with your existing smile. First off, we look at the health of your teeth.
Attention Missoula dental patients: brushing twice daily may help lower your risk of heart disease. Montana scientists, dentists, and cardiologists have known for many years that there is a link between inflammation in the mouth (gum disease) and heart problems. However, a recent study analyzed oral health habits and heart disease risk. Science Daily reported on the study which was published in the British Medical Journal.
Everyone has teeth, and smart dental patients want to take care of their teeth. However, many dental patients in the Frenchtown, Orchard Homes, and Wye area need a place where they can review basic principles of dental health and get straightforward information about popular cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening and veneers.
Patients often come into our Missoula, Montana dental practice and complain about ‘a toothache the size of Lolo.’ I understand this kind of pain, and realize that when you describe it like that, it really hurts. I can help.
So, what is a responsible dental patient to do? The first thing is to meet with your Missoula dentist and see what their opinion is. If you love floss picks, continue to use them when convenient, but still try to use regular dental floss daily.
Here at Felton Dental Care, as much as we love to see our patients, we would prefer they all enjoyed healthy smiles and only had to visit a couple times a year for cleanings and checkups. Use preventative dental visits to improve your oral care techniques and break the cavity curse.
