Saratoga tooth implants

Dental implants from Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA support teeth so lifelike, patients have been known to forget some of their teeth aren’t real. That’s now natural their look and function is.

Those simple facts are enough to make most people choose dental implants if they need to replace one or more of their teeth. Then they learn that in addition to those benefits, implants can actually preserve and promote healthy bone mass in their jaws.

Dental Implants and Bone Loss

An unfortunate consequence of losing teeth is that the surrounding bone begins to atrophy. This begins almost immediately, and is usually noticeable within a year or so. The person’s face takes on a shrunken or sagging appearance. The more teeth that are missing, the more pronounced it is.

This happens because of the missing tooth root. But because dental implants are physically attached to the jaw, they mimic the root. The natural biting and chewing motions stimulate the bone and encourage new tissue to grow around the implant.

One dental implant can support one artificial tooth, and several can support a bridge, and even a full dental arch. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we have placed them in patients from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale. They also come to us for other restorative dentistry options. Contact us today!

At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we can’t do enough to stress the importance of dental health. It’s more than having healthy teeth and gums: the link between dental health and overall health is by now well-established.

This means that brushing and flossing your teeth each and every day, without fail, is essential to your overall well-being. Brushing twice a day is better, and after every meal is best of all.

There are lots of different types of toothbrushes out there. Choosing one is largely a matter of personal preference: something that fits easily into your mouth and feels good in your hand are important considerations. Manual or electric? Both do a good job, though people with agility issues like arthritis may do better with an electric brush.

Whatever style you choose, we strongly recommend a toothbrush with soft bristles. They are the easiest on your teeth and gums and still do an excellent job of removing plaque and food debris from the surfaces of your teeth.

Alternatives

But nothing is ever easy any more, is it? More and more people are choosing alternatives to traditional plastic brushes. According to one source, more than one billion plastic toothbrushes end up in landfills every year in North America alone! It takes hundreds of years for these plastics to decompose.

Because of this, non-plastic toothbrushes are becoming more popular. Manufacturers make them out of sustainable materials like bamboo, wood, recycled paper, and recycled plastics. Some companies even have programs to recycle their used toothbrushes.

At the end of the day, the choice of toothbrush is yours. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we think brushing is the important thing, along with regular checkups. People from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!

Tooth decay remains the most important issue in dental health, and it affects people of all ages. At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we are committed to preventing tooth decay in our patients.

It can be an uphill battle sometimes. Tooth decay is caused by bacteria. It merges with plaque and acids to break down the enamel on your teeth. The tiny holes that can result are what we call cavities.

The Sugar Factor

Tooth decay is usually a result of diet and oral hygiene choices. When sticky or sugary foods are consumed and allowed to remain on the teeth, it can result in tooth decay.

To help prevent it, limit sugary and starchy foods between meals. A good oral hygiene strategy is advised, and that means brushing twice a day and flossing at least once.

At Floor Dental Group in Cupertino CA we are committed to the dental health of each patient. Services include complete general dentistry. Patients from Saratoga, Campbell, and Sunnyvale also come to us for cosmetic dentistry. Contact us today!
