Smoking is bad for your teeth

Added on 16.11.2018

Smoking is bad for your teeth
In our youth, probably most of us at least gave it a try, even if only to look “cool” and to not fall behind the circle of friends. Probably unsurprisingly, we’re talking about smoking here. For some of us, the calming “fag” is merely part of a temporary phase while, for others, it becomes a lasting habit or even an addiction. And those, who can or do not want to rid themselves of the habit of smoking, face not only constantly increasing cigarette prices and an array of potentially detrimental lung diseases, but also an increased likelihood of developing dental problems.

Baby bottle tooth decay as a hidden danger
We all love our children – even if they sometimes become annoying when it is time to brush their teeth and go to bed. In such moments, many parents resort to giving the small ones a bottle to calm them down with a yummy fruit juice or warm milk. In most cases, this tactic works wonders, but, unfortunately, too many parents are completely uninformed about the potentially detrimental consequences that this approach can have on their kids’ teeth ...

Added on 28.10.2018

Thumbsucking can be damaging
Only very few among us did not do it when we were small children. Whether to calm ourselves or to make falling asleep easier – sucking on our thumbs seemed to be the way to go. Unfortunately, all too often, we were also scolded by the parents who kept telling us that food and drinks – but not our thumbs – belong in our mouths. So why did they always make such a big deal out of thumbsucking and why do so many children start doing it early on in their lives in the first place? All good questions that deserve answers.

Chalk teeth causing trouble
So you wake up on a beautiful Saturday morning and are already looking forward to a relaxing day with the family. The sun is shining and it would be a colossal waste to spend one of the last warm fall days inside at home. Lets get the kids ready and their teeth brushed – but hold on a second: since when do milk teeth (i.e., temporary or baby teeth) come with brown-ish coloring?

Amalgam tooth fillings
Many of us can likely still remember it – the uncomfortable sound of the dentist’s drill followed by careful dabbing and the placement of a silver-colored filling.

From a slight toothache to a sweet reward
There it was again! That annoying searing pain on the right lower side of my mouth that kept popping up out of nowhere when I was chewing food, drinking any liquid, or even taking a deep breath. Interestingly enough, I was not able to locate the epicenter of said pain ...
