Experiencing multiple dental problems can be overwhelming. You may feel embarrassed to smile, in addition to dealing with physical symptoms of dental problems. Fortunately, full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive approach to rejuvenating vulnerable and damaged teeth and gums. Dr. Scott Greenhalgh has been performing full mouth reconstructions for many years, and he can discuss all of the options with you so you can make decisions about what to do next.
I want to provide some information about the current advisories for our dental practice.
Health officals have requested that dental offices in Colorado close for a period of three weeks. Therefore, IF you have a future dental appointment with either Dr Greenhalgh or our dental hygienists, they are CANCELLED. We will be contacting you about re-scheduling those appointments to a future date.
The National Association of Dental Plans estimates that over 97% of individuals have unused dental benefits at the end of each year. If you're not one of the 2-3% of people who has actually used their benefits, you should schedule an appointment immediately. You're paying insurance premiums (even if they are split with your employer). You may as well use the benefits that you've paid for.
Halloween is just a few days away. If you have young children, they are most likely excited about putting on their costume and going trick-or-treating on Thursday. This Halloween ritual is a favorite for many kids, and for good reason. What can be better than coming home with a giant bucket of candy? There’s nothing wrong with letting your kids enjoy some Halloween candy, but it’s important to have a plan in place for making sure these sweet treats don’t cause cavities.
Regular dental checkups and cleanings are an important part of your oral hygiene regimen, and they are crucial to your ability to maintain healthy teeth and gums long term. While the American Dental Association doesn’t outline specific recommendations for how often you should visit the dentist, most individuals typically should schedule dental checkups twice a year.
Seeing a dentist for regular checkups is key to living a healthy life, but not for the reason you may think. Did you know that your dentist does more than keep your teeth clean? They help keep your mouth cancer-free.
Oral cancer affects more than 50,000 Americans per year. Oral cancer screenings as part of your routine dental appointments are your best defense against this disease.
Missing teeth can be unsightly and embarrassing. When you're considering replacement teeth, though, you should look beyond the cosmetics of your smile. Missing teeth can also cause serious problems for your overall oral health.
