Lamar Odom Needs A Dentist (Video)

Getting someone to go to the dentist is not easy task when that person is afraid of what might happen. However, there's nothing like a solid tooth ache to sway the odds in your favor of getting your loved one into the dentist chair.   The good thing is, with pain medication and anesthesia, visiting the dentist to get your tooth ache resolved, or any other dental treatment you are needing, can make the visit a whole lot more appealing. Check out this clip from "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" where Khloe is trying to convince Lamar to go to the dentist to get his tooth ache taken care of.   Who knew Lamar was such a baby when it comes to the dentist?   Finally, I think it's the appeal of conscious sedation dentistry that finally convinces Lamar to agree to go to the dentist.

But sometimes, while eating food or playing around, something can happen where you accidentally chip or break a tooth.

8 Tips For Brushing Your Teeth More Effectively

You've been brushing you teeth since you were a child. So you know how to brush your teeth, right? But if you seem to have a lot of plaque build up between dental visits, perhaps you should revisit your brushing routine. Here are some steps to brush your teeth and keep that plaque from building up between checkups. 1.  First floss in between each tooth to dislodge any food or plaque that maybe trapped. A toothbrush can not get in between the teeth so flossing first is very important before brushing. 2.  Hold your toothbrush horizontally along your teeth with only some of the bristles on the gums. Tilt your brush so that it is pointing at a 45 degree angle to the gums. 3.  Brush with a small circular motion trying to focus on each tooth individually. Brush with this motion for about twenty strokes. If your gums are healthy,brushing like this should not cause pain. So if [...]

Here’s 3 Reasons Why Smoking Is Bad For Your Dental Health

Before consumers were knowledgeable about the many detriments of smoking, it was considered a rebellious act that made the individual look tough, mysterious or cool. Even "June Cleaver" type moms thought it added to their mystique to have a cigarette during morning coffee chats with friends. Nowadays it is well known that cigarette smoking affects the body negatively in many ways, including the teeth and mouth area. Discoloration of teeth Over time, smoking results in discoloration of the teeth. This affects the smile and overall attractiveness of the person. Although teeth whitening toothpastes are plentiful, discoloration from long-term smoking is difficult to remove with this treatment alone. Professional whitening treatments are available at dentist's office but they are costly and time consuming. If the individual does not quit smoking, the discoloration comes back over time. Halitosis (or bad breath) Smoking results in temporary and long-term bad breath. Individuals who smoke often feel that a mint, chewing gum or mouthwash [...]

Whitening At Home vs. Whitening With A Dentist

Whatever the driving force may be for your teeth becoming discolored, you may be one of the millions of Americans who are actively searching for ways to get back those pearly whites. As you pursue your research, one of the decisions you need to make (obviously) is how, exactly, you plan on going about getting your teeth.

How Smoking Impacts Your Dental Health & Teeth

It's no secret, if you smoke then you are dramatically increasing the risk of health issues arising with your mouth, teeth, gums, and overall oral health.  But despite all the warnings and risks that are associated with the habit of smoking, millions of people choose to do it anyway. Why?  Because they are addicted!  And if it was easy for someone to stop smoking, then I don't think we'd have the problem that we have today with the amount of smokers that are in the United States.

What Is Preventative Dentistry?

This post is sponsored by Dr. Michael K. Frazier with Rochelle Family Dentistry in Rochelle, Georgia. What is preventative dentistry? Not necessarily the most common question one might ask, but an important one nonetheless.  It's interesting when you start to research the subject of preventative dentistry, you'll find that overall, dentistry is the most proactive practice in preventative medical health.  Based on the general recommendation that you visit your dentist at least twice a year (every six months) for things like checkups, recommendations for dental procedures, etc... it's understandable how dentistry is seen as "proactive".  After all, it's unlikely you are visiting any other doctor more frequently than twice a year, for preventative purposes anyway. So it's a fair question then to ask, what exactly is preventative dentistry? In it's simplest form, preventative dentistry means teaching the patient how to prevent dental problems in the first place! It is the next best thing to having insurance for teeth.  Within [...]

Mini Dental Implants For Denture Stabilization, What You Need To Know!

Dentures are worn by literally millions of people here in the United States.  They are a great product for those who've lost teeth, or through medical reasons are in the process of losing teeth.  Nobody likes to be seen in public with teeth that are anything less than healthy and whole.  And because of this desire, especially here in the United States, people are anxious to purchase dentures to solve the cosmetic deficiency of no teeth. The problem with dentures, however, is they are most commonly held in place with a temporary fixture.  Most dentures are held in place by closely fitting to the underlying gum along with the bone tissue.  And because of this, the more surface area along the gum the better the seal may hold.  And because the upper gums tend to have more surface area than the lower gum, the upper denture products will ten to hold in place better than the lower dentures.
