Your teeth can make you look younger

Your Smile Can Make You Look Younger, Smarter and More Successful

Surprise! The fountain of youth has been in your dentist’s office all along. A recent survey conducted by Oral B found that a healthier-looking smile makes people look younger.

What’s even more surprising is that cosmetic dental work, and particularly teeth whitening, was found to be more effective in restoring a youthful appearance than a facelift.

It turns out that most people believe that your smile is the first indicator of youth, financial success, and education.

Whiten Your Teeth to Get Hired

Studies show that people are 58% more likely to be hired and 53% more likely to receive larger salary offers after a teeth whitening treatment.

February is National Children's Dental Health Month

National Children’s Dental Health Month

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. I, a dental hygienist of 10+ years with Creating Smiles Dental, have done many dental health presentations. I have done them for my own older kids and since most of their classmates are the same from year to year, I took a year off this past fall for the Great American Teach In and talked about other things. Well guess what, my preschooler’s class had not heard my presentation yet, so I asked if I could present to the class. The teachers were thrilled and asked if I could talk to the other VPK class at the school as well and of course … Read the rest

Dental Emergency and No Insurance? 5 Things You Need to Know

Dental emergencies are just that – emergencies.

A broken tooth may seem like nothing more than an uncomfortable cosmetic problem, but broken teeth are at high risk for infection. If left untreated, infections can spread to the blood and brain. Prompt attention to dental emergencies can be lifesaving. Go to your dentist right away, before the problem becomes worse (and more expensive to treat).

The emergency room is not equipped to handle dental emergencies.

People who have been ignoring a troublesome tooth often wind up in the ER because of increased pain and swelling that no longer responds to over-the-counter pain medication. These patients are routinely given a prescription for Read the rest

Straightening Your Teeth Just Got Easier — and Faster

Did you make a resolution to improve your teeth this year? That’s a smart decision — straight teeth can completely transform your smile in a beautiful way. Having straight teeth does more than just look good — it’s also better for your health.

Having crooked teeth increases your risk of tooth decay by making it harder to clean in between spaces and crossed-over teeth. This allows plaque to build up in those hard-to-reach areas, eventually turning into cavities and causing infections. Depending on the severity of your misalignment, it might even be harder to chew your food properly, leading to many Read the rest
