You look across the room and notice someone. Your eyes meet. You smile. Suddenly it seems as if light and warmth has filled the room. At our dental office in Memphis, we know that smiles really are great connectors and communicators, and they also make us more attractive and – bonus! – improve our health. We’d like to share that with you.
Who doesn’t love kissing? It is a wonderful way to connect and show love to your special someone. Unfortunately, when bad breath is part of the scenario, the fun can just go away. Bad breath affects your confidence and your attractiveness.
Almost every job requires a bit of face-to-face interaction. And your smile is the first thing others notice about you. Unfortunately, this could inadvertently lead to a misconception of who you are and could affect your career. Everyone at our Memphis dental office would like to talk a bit about the unfortunate truth about what your smile may be saying about you.
This time every year, people begin making resolutions to eat better, lose weight, or quit smoking. These resolutions that pop up every year typically mean well, but the truth is, not even half are kept longer than six months. At our Memphis dental office, we want you to resolve to make small changes for a healthier smile, not just for the next six months, but for the rest of your life.
You know you need a mouthguard when you play a sport like hockey or football, but when you are sleeping? Really? What in the world is there to protect your teeth from while you are snug in your bed, cushioned everywhere by pillows and blankets?
Dentures can be an amazing replacement to all or several missing teeth. They can help regain confidence, enhance your lifestyle, and can even restore a more youthful look. But just because they aren’t natural teeth doesn’t mean they don’t need the same level of care. At our Memphis dental office, we want our denture patients to get the most out of their dentures, which is where proper care comes into play.
At our Memphis dental office, we talk a lot about how important regular visits to us are for a healthy mouth, and even about how we can help boost the appearance of your smile with cosmetic dentistry. But there’s another, more important reason you should visit us at least twice a year.
Everyone wants a good night’s rest. But not everyone gets it. In fact, some people have nighttime habits and disorders that harm both their health and their teeth! Two of the primary sleep disorders we see at our Memphis dental practice are snoring or sleep apnea and bruxism (clenching and grinding).
At our dental office in Memphis, we’re always sure to stay up to date on technology and advancements in dental care. And our patients are pretty lucky to be living in a time when dentists have access to this kind of training. Did you know that there were no dental schools in the United states until 1840? And that in the middle ages, your “dentist” was just as likely to cut your hair as pull your teeth?
