Mouthwash Is No Longer an Option to Improve Dental Hygiene – It’s a Requirement

At one time, using mouthwash to improve oral healthcare was a standard recommendation. Dental care providers are increasingly expressing a problem with this concept.

Replace Your Missing Dentures With A Dental Bridge from Our Concord Dental Office

Dental bridges and crowns are placed in the jaw line to replace lost teeth. When a tooth is badly damaged, the dentist could opt to remove it to save the rest of the teeth.

The shift causes the upper and lower teeth to change the way you bite which results in food particles being deposited in the area. If proper dental care is not applied, the food may infect...

Pain in the Mouth If you speak with your general dentist, you will learn that gum disease can cause pain and discomfort in your mouth.
