Scottsdale Dentist: 4 Dental Myths Busted

  1. Implant surgery is painful: At our office, we can assure you that we take every precaution to make your implant surgery comfortable. Alongside this, dental implants are placed in your jaw bone – where there is no feeling, due to lack of nerves. It is actually impossible to “feel” a dental implant being placed into bone. No worries here!
  2. Baby teeth don’t matter since adult teeth will replace them soon: ALL TEETH MATTER! Though your child may be losing their baby teeth soon, it is imperative that you help them take care of their present teeth. If they are not taken care of, there is possibility of cavities to already be present on adult teeth due to decay reaching them during development!
  3. Dental disease stops at the mouth: Dental diseases have been linked through evidence based research to systemic problems, such as cardiovascular disease and even alzheimer’s. Your mouth is the entrance to the rest of your body, it is essential to take care of it for the best oral health and overall health!
  4. It is normal to lose teeth with age: Your teeth can last a lifetime and you should not think that you’re going to lose them with age. With great homecare and investment into dental checkups, you may live a whole life without a single restoration!
