Keeping kids cavity-free before they're ever born
Exciting new research shows that the management of the dental caries infection that causes cavities in expecting mothers results in a significant decrease in the risk of decay for their children. It has long been known that the primary root of transmission for the communicable dental caries infection is one of a vertical nature.
New research gives dental patients hope
What if your dentist could detect the potential for a cavity to form before it ever happened? A new testing device called the CariScreen from an Oregon company, Oral BioTech, now makes early detection possible. Cavities are caused by a bacterial infection called dental caries. New research by leading experts worldwide confirms that this infection while complex, is identifiable and treatable, no needles or drills necessary.
Xyli-Tots Professional Products for Kids
Xyli-Tots are a new line of products designed by dentists, specifically for kids, to provide the best opportunity for cavity prevention. The motivation for the development of the line comes from CDC reports that the bacterial infection responsible for causing dental decay, "dental caries, is the number one childhood disease affecting kids in America."

People choose esthetic dental procedures/surgery for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed bite or crooked teeth, treat an injury, or just improve their overall appearance. Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore a beautiful smile.
For these and many other reasons, esthetic dentistry has become a vital and important part of the dental profession.
Common esthetic dental procedures can be performed to correct misshaped, discolored, chipped or missing teeth. They also can be used to change the overall shape of teeth—from teeth that are too long or short, have gaps, or simply need to be reshaped.
Some of the more common procedures involve:
- Bonding - A procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color.
- Contouring and reshaping - A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth.
- Veneers - A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth.
- Whitening and bleaching - As the term implies, whitening and bleaching, a rapidly increasing procedure, are used to make teeth whiter.
Which techniques should be used to improve your smile? A dental exam will take many factors into consideration, including your overall oral health.
