Keep your teeth safe.

June is National Safety Month. National Safety Month is an annual month-long observance in the United States each June that aims to reduce the leading causes of injury and death through increased awareness of safety and health. 

UV Safety Month - Safety starts with me!

Your dental health contributes to your overall health. When considering your safety, remember to protect your teeth and mouth, as well as the rest of your body.

Here is a list of safety tips:

  • Wear a protective chin cup or mouth guard while bicycling, skateboarding, or skating. And don’t forget to wear a helmet.
  • Your teeth are not tools. Do not use them to pry open bottles or cans.
  • Refrain from chewing your nails. It can damage your tooth enamel and introduce bacteria.
  • Take care of your teeth by getting regular dental hygiene cleanings with examination.
  • Brush your teeth after meals and before bed.
  • Floss your teeth once a day.
  • If you have a toothache, contact your dentist.
  • If you have a broken tooth, contact your dentist immediately.
  • No one wants to have to find a dentist because of an emergency while they’re on vacation. If you are planning to travel, be proactive and get a dental checkup a few weeks before you leave. This way, problems can be nipped in the bud, and help to ensure an enjoyable trip.
  • If you have missing teeth consider your options including removable dentures and permanent tooth replacement with dental implants. Consider a prosthodontist, an American Dental Association recognized specialist in the restoration and replacement of teeth, for your dental treatment.

Please make your teeth a priority and take care of them. If you have a dental question or would like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to contact Pi Dental Center.

Eight Reasons to Replace a Missing Tooth

Posted by Chris Raines on Aug 8, 2018 3:37:04 PM

A Missing Tooth Is Like a Fork That's Missing a Tine. Here Are Eight Reasons to Replace a Missing Tooth

A healthy mouth should not be underestimated.

A missing tooth may seem like a small issue that can be ignored, but it negatively impacts your life. Here are eight reasons to consider replacing that missing tooth.

  1. Reduced Quality of Life
  2. Difficulty Eating and Dietary Inadequacy
  3. Discomfort and Pain
  4. Jaw Problems
  5. Crooked Teeth
  6. Your Appearance
  7. Self-Confidence
  8. Overall Health

Would you eat with a fork that’s missing a tine? You probably wouldn’t … if you had a choice. So why tolerate a missing tooth? There are many good reasons to replace a tooth and, usually, several options for replacement.

Your teeth are supported by the teeth around them. A missing tooth weakens the structure of the mouth and can eventually result in the loss of other teeth. When a tooth is missing, the remaining teeth shift in an attempt to fill in the gap left by that tooth. This change in tooth alignment can affect the jaw. Maintaining the alignment of teeth will protect the integrity of the entire mouth.

Replacing a missing tooth can give you a beautiful and functional smile that improves your overall health, attractiveness and self-confidence. Today there are effective and predictable methods for permanent tooth replacement. Dental implants have been proven to be safe and successful in restoring your smile.

A missing tooth can be replaced with a Single Tooth Implant restoration using the Teeth In A Day® protocol.

Teeth in A Day®, developed at Pi Dental Center, is our trademarked procedure. It allows patients to have stable non-removable healthy teeth in one office visit. In the conventional process, getting an implant took more than 3 months for the patient to have non-removable teeth. During that long 3 month period, the patient would suffer with a removable denture while they waited for the bone to heal. Teeth In A Day® has reduced this lengthy procedure to a single day.

Pi Dental Center utilizes a sophisticated approach to dental care with up-to-date treatment protocols and equipment. Contact Us To Schedule An Evaluation.
