You're a smarty. Okay, so wisdom teeth don't actually have anything to do with your intellect. But, they do wait to make their grand debut until you're older (in other words, until you've gained some "wisdom"). The third molars typically start breaking through sometime between the ages of 17 and 21, according to the American Dental Association. Even though some young adults can keep these teeth, many others don't have the room to.
Many people want to maximize their attractiveness, but they may omit one of the most important aspects of a first impression—their smile. Here are a few things that you can do to help ensure that your teeth are not off-putting:
Get rid of the yellow.
A white, gleaming smile is often considered more desirable than a mouth filled with yellow, discolored teeth. Still, many people with beautiful white teeth have used whitening products to get rid of dental staining.
If you end up with a cracked Maryland bridge, then you will most likely need to get the entire bridge replaced. Cracks in bridges are a bit more difficult to fix compared to cracks that develop in teeth. While it may take a few days to see your dentist, food and other debris can become lodged in the bridge. When this occurs, this will most often result in bacteria buildup. The bacteria buildup can spread to your nearby teeth and cause extensive damage.
Periradicular tissue surrounds the roots of the teeth providing housing and protection to a collection of nerves, blood cells, and tissues that help keep the tooth alive. If infection or trauma inflames the tissue, pus can fill up and create a painful abscess. Leaving the abscess untreated can allow the infection to spread further throughout your mouth or into your bloodstream.
How can your general or family dentist help with a periradicular abscess?
Dental crowns can cover deep staining, cracks, or cavities or seal up a tooth following root canal therapy. Cosmetic dentistry or general dentistry offices can craft a crown out of a variety of pure materials or combinations of materials. One type is an all-metal crown, which has particular pros and cons that can help determine whether this type is right for you.
Here are a few of the essentials for determining if an all-metal dental crown will treat your dental problem.
