General Dentistry: Common Problems Treated

The American Dental Association (ADA) advise adults to have dental checkups at least a twice a year. Unfortunately, most dental visits often involve the treatment of a teeth or gum problem that could’ve been easily prevented. Besides good oral hygiene, having dental exams is an effective preventive measure against a number of dental and oral conditions. 

Have you ever experienced wincing when you eat certain types of food? This is mainly caused by sensitive teeth, the most common dental problem among patients both young and old. Damaged enamel and cracked tooth are a few of the reasons for the sensitivity-related pain, which may be remedied by sealing up the crack or cavity, and prescribing you with a desensitizing toothpaste.

Does Having White Teeth Have Merits?

Most people visit a cosmetic dentist for one common reason: getting their teeth whitened. Whether due to age or daily habits, stained teeth is not something a lot of people would want. Are there actual merits to having whiter teeth, though? 

As a matter of fact, there are. A recent study published just last 2013 in the U.K., it was found that a bright white smile can definitely help anyone in landing a new job, and even to have a nice first date. The study has also determined that people with whiter teeth are perceived to be more successful, attractive, and appear five years younger than they actually are.
