Take Care of Those Pink Things Holding Your Teeth

While they look pink and weak, the gums are actually tough customers. After all, they are what are protecting the roots of your teeth. Treat your gums well and they will take care of your teeth. Neglect them at your own peril! Periodontal disease is the medical term for gum disease. It involves infection of […]


More About the Root Canal

In April’s first blog we didn’t delve into April showers and May flowers. We didn’t talk about chocolate Easter bunnies or those tulips coming up in your garden. We talked about the root canal. Fer fun! Our aim was to dispel some of the incredible misinformation that surrounds this important dental procedure. Root canals aren’t […]


April is for Root Canals

That headline alone is enough to make most people run for the hills or go hide under the boardwalk over at Jenkinson’s. The poor root canal — it needs a new PR firm or publicist. Everyone in the back of their minds equates a root canal with some form of medieval torture, somewhere between the […]


Powered Toothbrushes Deserve a Look

Electric toothbrushes used to be mainly a sideshow. Vibrating brushheads didn’t really do much to brush the plaque and food from your teeth unless you basically used them just as you would a manual toothbrush. The consensus was, “What’s the point?” That all changed when Oral-B introduced electric/powered toothbrushes with rotating and oscillating brushheads. Then […]

Questions About Dentures

In this month’s first blog, we got into some of the basics of dentures. Whether full or partial, dentures can change your life if you’re missing most or all of your teeth. They allow you to eat most foods again, they help maintain the angles of your facial anatomy, and they give you reason to […]


Replacing All of Your Teeth with Dentures

From the windup variety that chomp, chomp, chomp across a table, to the kind that surprisingly come out in a Bugs Bunny cartoon, dentures have long been fodder for jokes. But when a person is missing either all or most of his or her teeth dentures can change their life. It’s easy to assume most […]


More About that Jaw Joint of Yours

There isn’t a single person out there who wasn’t glad to throw away the 2020 calendar and put up a new one for the New Year. Whether it was worrying about the virus, whether it was coping with working from home, whether it was the lack of being able to get away and travel, or […]


Are You Grinding Your Teeth at Night?

Stress affects different people in different ways, and last year there was no shortage of stress for all of us. Some people internalize it and grind their teeth while they sleep. Often, they don’t know they’re doing so, although symptoms the next day tell the tale. This may simply be teeth grinding, otherwise known as […]


Bonding Isn’t Just for the Holidays
