A bright and confident smile leads to a stronger and more presentable personality. Everyone wants to fix oral problems as quickly as possible, and tooth blemishes are one of those problems you can fix quickly. That brown patch or blackish discoloration making you look awkward whenever you talk or smile can be removed quite easily when you consider teeth whitening as an option. There are two ways you can achieve effective teeth whitening:
Sugar comes in many different forms. It occurs naturally in fruit, but can also be added to artificially manufactured food and drink in large quantities. Many people believe that sugar presents a general threat to your health, as it can promote cellular inflammation. However, it seems that it can pose a particular threat to the health of your teeth, from not one but two different perspectives. What should you be aware of before you buy any packaged fruit juices or high-energy drinks again?
Dental anxiety in kids can result in poor oral health. As a parent, this is the last thing you want for your child. The good thing is that there's a host of things you can do to help your child overcome dental phobia. Keep it simple Avoid too many details during your visit to the dentist. Numerous details raises more questions and cause unnecessary anxiety. Maintain a positive attitude when talking about an upcoming visit.
Did you know that teeth begin growing in babies whilst they are still in the womb, as early as 11 weeks into their development? By the time they are born, their first set of teeth (primary) is already mineralised and in position, ready to erupt from about the age of 6 months. This means that beyond that delightfully gummy first smile lies a fully developed set of baby teeth, 20 in all, which will later follow the natural order and grow into position to help your baby learn to talk and chew food.
Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in your body, but enamel erosion is still something about which you should be concerned. Enamel is responsible for protecting the inner layers of your teeth; in a way, enamel can be considered their first line of defence. Unfortunately, enamel can be worn down by the acids and sugars found in the foods and drinks that you consume, with sugary sodas being one of the biggest culprits.
