At Today’s Dental Comfort, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth. Unfortunately, however, that is not always possible. In these circumstances, we recommend a tooth extraction. A tooth extraction is the process of removing the entire tooth structure, including the root, from the mouth. A tooth extraction can bring forth a variety of emotions from patients. Aside from the common feelings of sadness and disappointment, many patients also feel uncertain and nervous about the process and the recovery.
Have you recently had a tooth extracted and are struggling to choose a tooth replacement option? We know that the entire process can be a bit overwhelming. Losing a tooth unexpectedly can be quite upsetting, and the process of choosing a tooth replacement option can be difficult as well. We want to help our patients make the best choice for their lifestyle. We offer a number of treatments that can restore your teeth and leave beautiful results.

Do you have a procedure scheduled in our office in the near future? We offer a number of treatment options for our patients to restore their oral health as well as improve the function and appearance of their teeth. We know that, many times, patients have some nervous feelings about visiting our office for a procedure, and they are so focused on the treatment itself that they don’t really think about what needs to be done to prepare for treatment and the recovery after treatment is completed. While the procedure is extremely important and usually necessary, following our directions, before and after treatment, is imperative to ensure that results are as expected.
Would you love to make a change to your smile but are unsure which treatment would be right for your needs? Even if you have a beautiful smile and you are only concerned with the appearance of one tooth, we can help. We offer a number of cosmetic dentistry treatments, and not every treatment needs to be a complete overhaul of your mouth. You will be amazed at how a small change can improve not only the appearance of your teeth, but your self-confidence as well. One minor treatment in particular can make a major change to your smile.

March is a special month because we take the time to celebrate a very special, key group of team members in our office — our Dental Assistants. While the official celebration of Dental Assistants Recognition Week is during the first week of the month, we feel it is important to recognize our team all the time. We wanted to take some time this month to help you learn a little more about one of our dedicated dental assistants, Samantha.
Are you concerned about how your breath smells and find yourself continuously keeping your distance when speaking with others? It is not uncommon to experience bad breath from time to time, especially after drinking a cup of coffee or eating a meal with lots of garlic. The problem is usually remedied after thoroughly brushing your teeth or even after eating a mint. The concern arises when you are continuously experiencing unexplained bad breath. This is an indication that something more serious may be occurring with your oral health. Interested in learning what bad breath means?

We all know what we should be doing daily to ensure that we have a lifetime of healthy teeth, such as thoroughly brushing twice a day and using dental floss regularly. However, you may be surprised to learn that certain things you do without realizing it are causing harm to your oral health and may eventually lead to discomfort or a dental emergency. We want to share some bad dental habits to be aware of and change:
When was the last time you visited our office for a hygiene examination and cleaning? If it has been longer than six months or a potentially shorter recommended timeframe, we recommend calling soon to schedule your next appointment. We know that life is busy, and it always seems like work, family commitments, and activities creep in and take up your time. We encourage our patients to make an effort to put their oral health first. Delaying oral care can not only create the need for dental treatments, but it can also cause complications with your overall health. Continue reading to learn more about the importance of routine dental examinations.
Do you find that you avoid certain hot or cold foods because they cause discomfort to your teeth? Do you feel uncomfortable when you brush your teeth and rinse using cold water? If you answered yes, then you are dealing with sensitive teeth. Tooth sensitivity is a common sensation that patients experience from time to time. However, when sensitivity persists, it is a warning sign that you may have an issue with your oral health.
Has your smile been getting you down and you are looking to make a change?

The winter season and the start of a new year is the perfect time to do something for yourself. We offer a popular, easy, and fast treatment that will change your smile into one that may be as bright as the snow outside. Continue reading to learn more.
