Nothing makes you feel more insecure about your appearance than a discolored smile.

To erase years of poor oral hygiene habits, stain-causing foods, or tobacco use, there are many home remedies that are recommended online. These DIY natural treatments often seem safe, but your dentist in Slidell will likely advise against their use to prevent causing damage to your teeth.

When it comes to dental care, there are a lot of reasons patients give for skipping out on their preventive appointments and foregoing necessary restorative services. Most people guess that dental phobia or anxiety are the leading reasons patients avoid visiting their dentist. According to a poll by one of the leading national dental insurance providers, cost is actually the main reason patients skip out on dental care.

However, thanks to advancements in the field of adult orthodontics, a dentist can now help a patient get a straighter smile quickly and effectively without using metal braces.

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) have confirmed what dentists and health professionals have been telling patients for years: having your wisdom teeth removed helps you to stay healthy. Did you know that 80% of young adults that previously had healthy wisdom teeth that came in with little to no pain have developed problems within the next following 7 years? “Even if wisdom teeth aren’t causing any immediate problems, it’s likely that people will face complications down the road,” said Dr. Louis K. Rafetto, chair of the AAOMS Task Force on Third Molar Data. “The fact is [that] extraction is much easier for young adults and research consistently shows that it is a simple way of improving both dental health and overall health.”
If you’ve been feeling the pressure and tooth pain that developing wisdom teeth cause, you may want to consider getting them removed. Your dentist in Slidell can perform painless and ultimately helpful wisdom teeth extractions to benefit your overall health. If you’re thinking about it, you may have a few questions.
