When you have a painful situation within your smile, it can be difficult to go through your daily life as if nothing is the matter. Oftentimes, you may know exactly the reason for this sensation; if you have a noticeably broken or chipped tooth, the subsequent infection could be causing apparent deterioration of this area of your mouth. However, you could be left completely in the dark, if there is not a visually identifiable problem.

Stains on your teeth can be difficult to remove on your own with your regular brushing and flossing. Even with whitening toothpaste, your concern simply might not be addressed. Speak with a trained dental provider about your condition before you start treating yourself, so that you can receive a true diagnosis.

Be sure that your stains are coming from the foods you eat and not from internal discoloration, which can require an entirely different correction.

The dedicated maintenance of your smile has two distinct parts. The first is your home hygiene regimen which includes a thorough brushing twice each day. Be sure to brush before bed as well, as bacteria will have unfettered access to your mouth for hours while you sleep. Flossing is also a vital step in your home dental health, and people often misunderstand its importance. The space between your teeth is a prime area for microbial growth.
The other side of the dental maintenance coin is with your regular checkups with the dentist. These appointments serve to give you the tools you need to be successful in your oral health. You will receive a visual examination in order to take a look at any problem developments. This is a pivotal step in your care, as early detection gives you more options at avoiding lasting damage. At Advanced Dental Concepts in Auburn Hills, MI, we understand the benefits of regular cleanings and examinations. (more…)
Nearly everyone has some part of their smile that they would change if possible. Even small instances of enamel overwear or damage can occupy much of your headspace. If you have been fixated on an element of your smile, there is a helpful and accessible option available to you.
Custom cosmetic dentistry can give you back confidence in instances of enamel loss. Over time, you may have worn down a specific area due to misalignment or overnight grinding from a condition known as bruxism. Porcelain veneers are a comprehensive renewal solution that aims to help you through a thin slice of ceramic material. These translucent new covers reinforce or replace your existing enamel. At Advanced Dental Concepts in Auburn Hills, MI, we proudly offer this procedure to give you beautiful teeth that can consistently function at a high level for decades to come. (more…)
For most people, snoring does not pose a serious health risk. However, if you suffer from chronic obstructive sleep apnea, you may be causing harm overnight to your overall wellbeing. This term refers to the momentary pause of breath during sleep due to a blocked airway. Your throat may be unable to properly carry oxygen during our deepest form of sleep known as REM. At these times, the structure of the throat can soften and begin to lay atop itself. Chronic obstructive sleep apnea can contribute to serious conditions such as heart disease. These patients also see an elevated risk of heart attack and stroke.
Bruxism is another condition that occurs during sleep. This refers to the grinding of teeth; when it happens while you are unconscious, you cannot stop yourself. Grinding leads to enamel erosion, where the hard exterior of the tooth wears. Bruxism can cause severe damage to the teeth, so take your grinding seriously. Advanced Dental Concepts in Auburn Hills, MI proudly offers a non-surgical solution that can help by positioning the jaw in a safe location overnight. (more…)
