Why do your teeth shift?


Considering that your teeth are securely anchored to your jawbone, they might seem immovable without orthodontia. But teeth shifting out of alignment can occur for several reasons other than when braces are first removed. Not only that, the shift can cause problems with your bite that may result in jaw, facial or neck pain if left untreated.

If you’ve noticed a shift in your smile, it’s helpful to know that some movement is common for everyone. But in some cases, you may need the guidance of a dental professional.

How to keep your teeth healthy longer with age


Aging isn’t always pretty, and your mouth is no exception. A century ago the need for dentures in later life was almost a foregone conclusion. Today, three-quarters of people over 65 retain at least some of their natural teeth, but older people still suffer higher rates of gum disease, dental decay, oral cancer, mouth infections, and tooth loss. While these problems are nothing to smile about, you can still do a lot to keep your mouth looking and feeling younger than its years.

What creates a cavity?


There are many factors that come into play when a cavity is created. First, for a tooth to be affected by decay, the bacteria must attach themselves to the tooth. They combine with proteins in your saliva and food remains, creating a layer which is also known as plaque. Plaque then acts as a glue that sticks to your teeth and coats them with these bacteria.

Now, in order for bacteria to thrive, they must eat. Their most favorite foods are salty foods and sugary foods. They love anything that is easy to digest and they often digest it is in as little as 15 minutes. With that being said, junk food is not only bad for your body and health, it is also just as bad for your teeth.
