Fighting tooth decay is a constant and challenging battle for children; constant because the bacteria that lead to cavities are always present in their mouths and challenging because little hands may have a difficult time adequately brushing and flossing their teeth. Because of this, the dentists and their dedicated team of dental assistants and hygienists at Complete Dental Care may suggest additional measures that are very helpful. In particular, your children’s dentist in Burlington often recommends dental sealants.

Believe it or not, dentures have been around for 1000s of years. Most people have heard the tale of President George Washington’s wooden teeth—that were actually made out of ivory and parts of human, horse and donkey teeth—but did you know that archaeologists have found evidence of false teeth being used in Egypt around the year 1500 B.C. and during early Japanese dynasties? Fortunately, the dentures of today have come a long way. At Complete Dental Care in Burlington, dentures are now designed to look natural and feel completely comfortable.

A group of dentists and dental researchers more than a century ago determined that regular dental visits were the only way to improve oral health in America. At the time, more soldiers were unable to enlist and serve in World War I because of poor oral health than any other medical concern. While the shift took decades, today, most general dentists focus their practice on regular, preventive dentistry visits to maintain oral health. This may seem second nature, but in 1914, this was a revolutionary change. People sought dental care only when pain was unbearable, and the resulting treatment options were significantly limited due to the advanced stage of oral health issues. At Complete Dental Care, we encourage patients to make twice a year dental visits part of their oral hygiene routine.

For many patients, orthodontic treatment seems out of reach. They didn’t receive treatment during their youth, they’re too busy, they have a sensitivity to metals, and many more reasons prevent people from straightening their smiles. In most cases, patients believe that correcting misaligned teeth is purely cosmetic, but there are numerous health advantages related to orthodontic correction. To achieve optimal oral health without the concerns associated with traditional braces, Complete Dental Care recommends patients consider six month smiles, the high quality invisible braces Burlington residents trust.
