Fluorosis causes stains
Whether fluoride does or does not help one’s teeth is one of those topics that keep emerging over and over again in newspapers, magazines, and even on TV. Many say that fluoride is great for teeth because it hardens the dental enamel. Others, however, are worried that too heavy usage may be poisonous.

Dentist visit at home

Dentist visit at home
Thanks to modern dentistry, many dental procedures that were once considered unrealistic, exceptionally difficult, or even impossible in the relatively recent past are nowadays considered routine. Nowadays, in the age of mobile technology, dentists can also opt to “go mobile” and fit virtually everything a modern dental practice needs into one to two special suitcases that they can take directly to their patients’ homes, upon request. This all sounds very futuristic but does it even make sense for a dental practice to “go mobile”?

Dental care during pregnancy

Dental care during pregnancy
In Austria, people used to say ”every child costs a tooth“ and though this is nowadays no longer literally true, it is absolutely essential for future mothers to take extra good care of their teeth while they are expecting. The reason for this is that a pregnant woman undergoes significant hormonal change which leads to several key changes in her entire body including her oral cavity.

Smoking is bad for your teeth

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.

Antibiotic therapy versus periodontosis – Pros & Cons of the so-called Van-Winkelhoff-Cocktail
It is always a bad omen when the day starts with hurting gums. And when said pain is caused by periodontosis things could turn for the worse even more. Successful treatments for this kind of gum line inflammation can often be quite time consuming and require several dentist visits and a handful of medicines (incl. antibiotics).

Baby bottle tooth decay as a hidden danger

Added on 02.11.2018

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 ...

Thumbsucking can be damaging

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 ...

Dental bridge instead of tooth gap

Dental bridge instead of tooth gap
Dental implant or dental bridge – or maybe stick with the tooth gap? When someone has to ask him- or herself this question, most likely one of the following two scenarios is true:

A. Bad accident results in damage inside and around the mouth that requires professional attention

B. Advancing age leads to a continuously decreasing amount of healthy teeth

Dentist needed for periodontosis treatment
After a long day at work and an even longer work week, it was finally Friday evening – Hooray! Alright then, off to a few cold ones with a few colleagues to let off some steam.

Joy, oh Joy, and happiness is in the air … and a hand out of nowhere!
On December 31, 2017, I was also among them – the many people who had decided to greet the New Year in Vienna’s historic old city center. Oops – with all the festivities around me, my cap just decided to fly off my head – let’s quickly pick it up! As I was about to stand up again, a hand holding a Sekt bottle appeared seemingly out of nowhere on the right side of my face...

Wisdom tooth, oh wisdom tooth, why do you hurt so much?
It was a sunny Monday morning in late May 2014. I was in a conference room giving my team our weekly project status update. Suddenly, I felt a stabbing pain pulsing through my right cheek – a pain so strong and sharp that it brought my presentation to an early halt.
