Great Service that is hard to find these days
The receptionist Rose was so helpful and caring- I needed a root canal ASAP, but couldn't take time off of work. She rescheduled me 3 times, then convinced the specialist doctor to come in before hour...

Preserving Your Teeth as You Get Older

preserving your teeth as you get olderIn the past, many people expected to lose some, if not all, of their teeth as they got older. But today, advances in dental technology allow many people to hand onto their natural teeth for their entire lives. There are numerous ways for our cosmetic dentist in West Hollywood to restore your smile if you have lost a tooth like dental implants, bridges, or dentures. But for most people, it is far easier to just take the proper preventative measures to ensure that your teeth do not fall out in the first place. There are certain steps you can take to preserve your oral health, including:

• Visit your dentist at least twice a year. Many people do not see their dentist unless something feels wrong, but getting routine dental examinations can help prevent those problems from occurring at all. Many dental problems are asymptomatic at first, but your dentist will be able to detect and treat it while it is still in a manageable stage.
• Use an electric toothbrush. Many patients do not how to brush properly with a regular toothbrush, but an electric one does most of the work for you. Most electronic toothbrushes even come with a timer, so you will brush for the right amount of time.
• Wear a mouth guard if you grind your teeth. Teeth grinding is a common habit, but it can slowly wear away your enamel. Wearing a mouthpiece reduces the damage.

By devoting just a few minutes each day to focus on your oral health routine, you will be saving yourself a lot of hassle in the long-run.
