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.

Is there anything more special than your child’s smile? Well, yes—knowing that smile is healthy, too. And there’s no better month than February to make sure all of your children’s teeth are as healthy as they can be. The American Dental Association has named February National Children’s Dental Health Month. And while this may be the month that is officially devoted to kids’ teeth, Dr. Shiloh Lindsey and the team at Aspen Dental Care in Ft. Collins, CO, take your children’s dental health seriously every day of the year.
Children’s Dentistry at Home
Actually, children’s dentistry begins at home with you, the parent. Just as soon as you see those first baby teeth appear, it’s time to start taking care of your children’s dental health. After feeding, use a soft cloth dampened with warm water and wipe your children’s baby teeth and gums. Then, as more teeth erupt and their smiles develop, use a soft toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste to brush their teeth. As they mature, you can teach them to brush their own teeth. And to make sure they know brushing is a good thing, make it a family activity.
Children’s Dentistry in the Office
Around the time of their second birthdays, Dr. Lindsey will want to start seeing your children in the office. We like to call their first visit a Happy Visit, a time to get acquainted with us and the sights and sounds in a dentist’s office. At their first checkup, we’ll carefully examine each tooth and assess their gum health. We’ll also look for any signs of tooth decay.
At some point, Dr. Lindsey will likely recommend a fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens teeth’s enamel, making them better able to fend off decay-causing bacteria. Dental sealants are applied to your children’s molars and provide a solid barrier between their teeth and the acids that cause decay.
