Having cavities means that your teeth’s hard surfaces have become permanently damaged. Your teeth will have microscopic holes or openings that invite bacteria in shortly after. Cavities, caries, or tooth decay can be a result of several things, including bacteria build-up due to poor oral hygiene, frequent snacking, and eating too much sugar.

Can Root Canals Decay?

Root canals are a common dental procedure, with a success rate of over 95%, according to the American Association of Endodontists. With proper after-care treatment, a root canal can last a lifetime. In this dental procedure, the soft centre of the tooth is removed. This is called the pulp. It is made up of connective tissue, blood vessels, and nerves, which are all crucial in helping a healthy tooth grow.

Dental Implants: What They Are + Health Insurance Facts

If you have missing teeth, one of your options is to have implants. Dental implants are much like dentures, but the main difference is that they are a fixed solution, whereas dentures are removable. Implants are more preferred because they look like your natural teeth – even feel like them. They are longer-lasting, too and allow you to talk and chew almost as if you never lost a tooth.

Teeth Whitening

A gleaming bright smile is everyone’s desire. Yet, most people do not feel confident smiling because of stained or discoloured teeth. Teeth whitening is a treatment that aids in removing discolouration, thus lightening teeth. Beverages and foods that stain the enamel can cause teeth discolouration. If you fail to brush your teeth for an extended period, your teeth could become discoloured. It happens due to food particle accumulation. Smoking may also cause teeth discolouration.
