Contributed by DentalROI

Gum Disease TreatmentMost people know all too well that what they eat affects their general health, but did you realize diet significantly impacts your oral health? Without the proper nutrients, your oral tissues cannot fight infection and inflammation adequately and are less able to heal and repair themselves. When you eat healthily, these foods help to protect your teeth and oral tissues, and the benefits extend to your general health. A healthy mouth will protect your overall health because you need strong and healthy teeth to bite and chew food properly, and the process of digestion begins in your mouth as your saliva contains digestive enzymes.

Why We Need Our Wisdom Teeth Removed

Contributed by DentalROI

Wisdom Teeth ExtractionYour wisdom teeth don’t appear until all your other permanent teeth are firmly established. Usually, people will get their wisdom teeth from age 17 until their early 20s. These large molars are great when they can come through without problems because extra teeth are always welcome! Unfortunately, all too often the mouth is already fully occupied when it is time for these teeth to erupt, which is why they frequently cause problems and must be removed. Some people will develop problems with their wisdom teeth while still in their teens, but others may not see any adverse effects until much later in life.

Contributed by DentalROI

Teeth WhiteningA white smile automatically looks attractive, conveying a sense of youthfulness and it shows the person cares about their appearance. When you know your teeth look great, you’re more inclined to smile at others which can lead to people perceiving you slightly differently. Someone who smiles frequently and who seems happy and confident is more likely to be seen as a person who is warm, welcoming and friendly. People who aren’t so confident about their appearance will frequently hide their teeth when talking with others and will tend to smile and laugh less often.
