Damaged, stained or other flawed teeth have an immediate impact on the appearance of an individual’s smile. But, what about the other, not so visible effects?
Has someone recommended extracting teeth for orthodontic treatment? This is an outdated treatment technique that is sadly still used. There are very few cases that really need to have teeth extracted to correct the jaw relationships and bite. Jaw development or jaw growth protocols are often a much better option to consider. Some will say this cannot be done, however, it can works on adults as well.
There are several different options for whitening teeth, including over-the-counter options that contain peroxide. These teeth whitening options penetrate the enamel to oxidize colored compounds in the dentin – the dense tissue that comprises a majority of a tooth’s structure. When dentin is oxidized, fluids in its tubules can shift, resulting in sensitivity both to touch and to stimuli such as hot or cold liquids.
