Over the last two years, one thing that has popped up repeatedly on the Internet, and made its way into conventional media and stores, is the idea of using activated charcoal-based dental products to whiten our teeth and ‘detox’ our mouth.
If you’re considering ways to enhance your smile and restore your teeth, EK Dental Surgery offers two great options in our crowns and porcelain veneers.
Both alternatives are popular, and both can give you great results.
Although both treatments improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile, there are some critical differences between them.
Tired of the resentment and resistance when you try to get your children to take care of their teeth?
Bored with explaining the importance of proper dental care to children who don’t care?
Don’t worry; EK Dental Surgery has some tips to bring playfulness and joy to oral hygiene.
World No Tobacco Day, sponsored by the World Health Organization, is held on May 31 this year.
It aims to raise the awareness of the damage that tobacco can inflict and encourage people to quit using tobacco in any of its forms.
At EK Dental Surgery, we completely support the WHO in its efforts to decrease tobacco use.
Everybody likes to see their Mother smile. This is particularly true on Mother’s Day when we all try hard to please her.
And seeing your mom grin in pleasure is an excellent reward for a great Mother’s Day gift.
But what if your mother doesn’t feel great about her smile? What if her dental health isn’t perfect?
Using orthodontics to correct an underbite or crowded teeth does much more than make you proud of your smile and improve your self-confidence.
It also improves your oral health, which then improves your overall health.
Misaligned teeth make dental care more difficult, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.
With Easter right around the corner, there’s no doubt that kids are dreaming of all the candy and treats they’ll be getting for the holiday.
Many of us celebrate the holiday in part by giving out Easter baskets and holding Easter egg hunts filled with chocolate, candy, and other sweets. All of which are stuffed with sugar.
When an upset parent calls EK Dental Surgery because their child has knocked out (“avulsed”) a tooth, the first thing we determine is if the tooth was a permanent one or a baby tooth (temporary).
If you’re missing one tooth, or many, you’ve probably looked into dental implants to replace them.
You’ve probably also noticed that dental implants are more expensive than other treatments and wondered if dental implants were the answer for your missing teeth?
It’s a very unusual person who wouldn’t accept a better smile.
And there are excellent reasons for that – anecdotes and studies show that an attractive and healthy smile can be a boon to our confidence and more importantly, how others see and assess us.
If you are dissatisfied with your smile as it currently is, you may have heard about cosmetic dentistry, and that it might help.
