Read on to learn whether you can whiten your teeth at home or whether a dentist offers a better option for you.
Getting your wisdom teeth removed can seem like a teenage or adult rite of passage. About five million people get their wisdom teeth removed every year. In many cases, wisdom teeth cause no problems at all and can stay in without compromising your dental health. In others, even when your wisdom teeth are not causing pain, they need to be removed to prevent an issue later on.
Many people have misconceptions about dental implants that can keep them from taking advantage of this option. Education about implants can put these misconceptions to rest and allow people to enjoy an option that is far more comfortable, convenient and appealing than dentures. Have you been worried about any of the following? Read on to put your fears to rest.
