The Inside Scoop On Bad Breath

Bad breath (Halitosis) is more than an inconvenience; it can be an important social problem that affects your interactions with other people. Knowledge is power so it helps to understand what causes bad breath before you decide how you are going to combat/prevent it.

Nervous (Terrified?) About Going to the Dentist?

Even though we know that these days dental procedures are pretty much pain free some people still suffer from anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist. Because your dental health is so important to your whole body health it simply cannot be ignored. This leaves us with the question of how your dentist can make your dental appointment work for you if you suffer from dental anxiety.

Sometimes a Toothache is Not a Toothache!

How can your TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) cause a toothache? It can't CAUSE a toothache but it can cause you to THINK you have a toothache.

You might think of your whole body as a fine Swiss watch, the parts all carefully calibrated to work in harmony with each other. If one part malfunctions, or is slightly "off", it disrupts the balance and harmony of the whole system.

When you apply this analogy to the human body you can see how a problem in one place (your TMJ) can cause a trickledown effect to another place all together (your tooth).

CEREC 1 Day Crowns

CEREC - Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics, now that's a mouthful for anyone. The only word that really jumps out is "economical", something we all look for when it comes to dental work.

Simply put, CEREC refers to a product that allows Dogwood Dental Health Center to restore decayed, broken or chipped teeth or replace a failing crown or partial crown in one appointment. That's right, we're talking about 1 day crowns done in Campbell River.
