Can Meditation Help Improve Your Oral Health?
Meditation is known to help your body in many different ways. However, most people do not realize that it can also help improve their oral health. When a person is stressed out, their mouth is often more acidic than normal. This can harm your mouth, specifically your enamel. When a person is trying to focus, they may also clench their teeth without even realizing it. This is called bruxism. If you begin to meditate and keep yourself calm and focused, you can avoid both of these situations. Something as simple as meditating for 15 minutes each day can improve your overall health, including your oral health.




Is Crown Lengthening a Cosmetic Procedure or Is it More?
If you are considering whether you should have one or more of your crowns lengthened, one thing you may be wondering is whether the procedure has any practical value beyond aesthetics. Simply put, it does. Crown lengthening does play a large role in the cosmetic appearance of your smile, to be sure. But many people choose to undergo this process for restorative purposes.

Crown Lengthening as a Restorative Procedure

When your teeth first came in during your childhood, they were a certain size and shape. Most teeth - at least in properly developed mouths - fit together like a key fits into a matching lock. However, as time passes, this can change.

Whether it's due to trauma, normal wear and tear, or some other factor, sometimes the shape and size of your teeth can change. This can present a problem with your smile, and having your crowns lengthened is an ideal way to address this. Using the latest dental technologies and procedures, we can lengthen your crown to its original size. In addition, the process affords us the opportunity to do things like correct slight irregularities in the spacing and positioning of your teeth.

Do You Have Questions About Crown Lengthening?

If you have been considering this process and would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to take the time to sit down and answer your questions. We can walk you through the process and help you understand what can (and cannot) be accomplished with the crown lengthening procedure.
