Patients with missing teeth often forego the tooth replacement process out of fear that they will receive an unnatural looking replacement, dentures that slip and slide, or experience additional pain or discomfort. Dental implants offer many patients a safe, effective tooth replacement option that leaves them with flawless, natural looking smiles. In the past two decades, innovations in the dental implant supported tooth replacement process have made it possible for more patients than ever before to be considered good candidates for this restorative treatment. Still, there is no such thing as a one size fits all solution when it comes to dental care. Before you begin the dental implant supported tooth replacement process, we encourage you to consider some of the reasons patients may choose a different tooth replacement solution.

Even the most thorough at-home hygiene routine isn’t enough to keep patients’ smiles healthy. At every age and stage of dental development, daily at home hygiene coupled with regular checkups from a general dentist helps patients maintain their healthiest smiles. If you want to keep your natural, beautiful smile for life, visit your phillipsburg dentist for a dental checkup twice a year.

It’s October, and this is one of our favorite months of the year. The air is crisp, and we’re seeing more and more pumpkins on our way to work every day. Yes, Halloween is almost here, and the kids won’t let us forget it. There’s no doubt it — it’s a fun time of year for them, but what about their teeth? Post-halloween, children are binging on sticky, sugary candy for days, and that creates a firestorm of bacteria inside their mouths. This year, don’t let your child’s favorite holiday ruin their smile — help their teeth stay healthy with a post-Halloween cleaning from your dentist in Phillipsburg.
