Posted by on 1:01 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 3 Herbal Teas To Relieve Soreness After A Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are useful for replacing broken or missing teeth. The implants can be shaped and colored to match your existing teeth. Installing a dental implant involves embedding a titanium post into the bone socket of the tooth it is replacing. Once the post bonds with the rest of the bone in your mouth, the replica tooth is then added. This entire process can leave your mouth feeling a little sore. Luckily, there are a few herbal teas you can drink in order to relieve some of the pain. Lavender Tea Lavender is regularly included as a relaxant in teas in order to relieve tension and soreness in the body. The plant contains analgesic and detoxifying properties that are beneficial for cleansing and calming the body. A natural lavender tea can be created by steeping the plant in hot water. Allow the lavender to sit for a few minutes. Once the water has cooled you can drink the tea. In order to notice a reduction in soreness, drink the tea several times a day. Clove Tea Cloves come from a flower bud and are used as spices. In addition, clove oil extracted from cloves is commonly used in dental care in order to alleviate pain caused by decay and dental surgeries. The herb contains antibacterial and antiseptic properties that allow it to ward off infection while soothing any pain. You can create a clove tea by steeping the herb in boiling water. This will extract the oils from the herb along with its calming and soothing properties. The tea should be consumed several times throughout the day in order to notice a change in soreness. Spearmint Tea Spearmint is similar in taste to peppermint and is used as a natural pain killer. It contains antibacterial and analgesic properties that make it great for fighting off infection and reducing any aches and pains throughout the body. The herb can be converted into a tea by boiling it in a pot of water at low heat. Once a few minutes have gone by, cut the heat and allow the tea to cool. The taste of spearmint can be strong, therefore, adding lemon will help to balance out the taste. The soreness will go away if you drink the tea daily. A dental implant is often necessary for replacing damaged teeth, but the procedure can leave your mouth in pain. Therefore, use these tips to help reduce some of the soreness after a dental implant...

Posted by on 12:35 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Veneers: How They Are Placed And How They Can Transform Your Smile

If you would like to improve the appearance of your teeth, cosmetic dental applications such as veneers can help. Veneers are thin slivers of porcelain or resin that can be applied to the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. Here is the process for applying veneers and a few ways veneers can transform your smile: How are veneers placed? When you decide to get veneers, you can expect to have at least two scheduled visits with your dentist. During the first visit, your dentist will make a mold of your teeth from which the veneers will be fabricated. During the same visit, your dentist will remove a thin layer of your tooth enamel so that the veneers will not protrude from the surface of your teeth. After the enamel is removed, your dentist will apply temporary veneers that remain in place until your permanent veneers arrive. During the second visit, the permanent veneers are bonded to your teeth. How can veneers improve your smile? Teeth Whitening Unlike dental bleaching agents, dental veneers don’t whiten your teeth chemically. They actually cover color imperfections. This can be advantageous for people who have dental stains that are not affected by bleaching.  Tooth-whitening kits that use dental bleach only remove certain types of stains, such as those from food, drink or tobacco. However, dental bleach does not improve the look of permanent stains, such as those from a congenital condition or from medications. Drugs such as tetracycline can permanently discolor teeth as a side effect. Veneers conceal the discoloration and make the teeth look perfectly white. In addition, unlike tooth-bleaching solutions, the application of veneers does not increase dental sensitivity. Misshapen Teeth Some teeth may not develop a desired shape. Teeth that are too small or that display an irregular contour can stand out and make your smile look less attractive. Veneers can be applied to teeth that are structurally different for greater dental uniformity. Chipped Teeth Sometimes, a dental irregularity can be caused by trauma. A chipped or cracked tooth may not have many oral health implications if it is properly sealed. However, it can be quite noticeable in your mouth. Misalignments Severe misalignments should be corrected using orthodontic applications. However, misalignments that are minor can be hidden using veneers. If you would like to improve the appearance of your smile, veneers can make a difference. Contact a dental clinic, such as Rupp and Grabowski Family Dentistry, to learn how veneers can give you the smile that you...
