Dental implants are fast becoming the most recommend tooth replacement option available. Unlike other forms of tooth replacement that only restore the visible parts of the smile, implant posts are inserted below the gums where they mimic the healthy function of natural tooth roots, giving patients the healthy function and stability they need. However, implant supported restorations do come with a higher price tag than other restoration options. That means patients need to consider shopping around for the best price options for their implant supported tooth replacement plans. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the things to consider when looking for the most affordable dental implant tooth replacement options to put the smile back on your face without breaking the bank.

For decades, dentists have relied on dental crowns to repair damaged smiles and preserve healthy tooth structures. While the creation methods and materials have improved through the years, the idea remains the same. If patients have enough dental structure left to support a crown restoration, there’s no need for them to lose their entire tooth. Today, we can also use dental crowns to protect root canal treated teeth, as part of the tooth replacement process, and for cosmetic improvement. In fact, many dentist’s offices even offer same day dental crowns to make the restoration process a breeze.

Tinnitus, ringing or buzzing sounds in the ear, has been affecting humans for thousands of years, and as long as people have been experiencing this odd auditory trouble, others have been trying to cure it. Some of the strange tinnitus treatments offered include pouring rose extract into the ear, filling the ear canal with earth worms boiled in goose grease, and strapping hot loaves of bread to the ears. Today, our understanding of tinnitus is a little more advanced, and hopefully, the available treatments are too.

Yes – there is a correct and incorrect way to floss your teeth. This is separate from brushing your teeth. Most people try to lump brushing and flossing into one, but that’s not how it should be done. Brushing is and will always be separate from flossing. This isn’t to say that brushing your teeth is bad; it’s necessary! Flossing is just as important as brushing, and patients need to understand this. Too often we run into a situation where a patient either is unsure of how to properly floss their teeth or won’t floss at all. There’s no harm in not knowing the correct flossing technique, that’s why we’re here to help!

Collins, CO office has the preventive dentistry services that can help keep your oral health in fantastic shape. As part of our general services, we can train you on how to practice good oral habits. Flossing once a day is good but if you’re not doing it correctly then what’s the point? We’ll help you head down the path to excellent oral health with our flossing recommendations. Dr. Lindsey is the dentist Fr. Collins residents can trust.

Yes, there is a right and wrong way to brush your teeth. Surprise! We bet you didn’t know that. There’s a lot more to the process than simply smothering toothpaste on your brush and brushing your teeth. There are angles and movements involved. Your teeth are shaped in such a way that a brush must be used on the front, sides, and back of your teeth. You would be surprised just how many patients are unsure of the proper way to brush their teeth. Also, many patients forgo flossing. It’s just as important as brushing your teeth and can help keep tooth decay, plaque and tartar off of your tooth’s surface.
At our office in Ft. Collins, CO, we go out of our way to help our patients understand how important it is to practice good dental hygiene habits at home. These habits include brushing and flossing correctly. Dr. Lindsey is the dentist Ft. Collins, CO residents can trust.
