An implant is placed in the mouth by either an oral surgeon or a periodontist. When the implant is ready to restore, usually 4-6 months after placement, impressions are taken and sent to the lab to make a permanent crown to attach to the implant.
IT’S ALL FUN & GAMES UNTIL A TOOTH GETS KNOCKED OUT.
It was around that time of year when we were bombarded with parties, family celebrations, and impromptu get togethers. It was also when we tend to had more alcohol available to us than any other time of the year. While we know you understand the serious complications drinking too much alcohol may have on your body, all of us at Aesthetic Dental Arts in York PA want to make sure you also know how alcohol can affect your teeth.
Why Is Alcohol Not Good for Teeth?
Alcohol is naturally dehydrating – both to the body and to your mouth. When your mouth becomes dry, enough saliva isn’t produced. This is a problem. Saliva rids your mouth of unwanted, dangerous bacteria and neutralizes damaging acid. Without it, your teeth are vulnerable to acid attacks and decay. What’s more, alcohol is high in both sugar and acid. When you combine those ingredients and take away the saliva that’s meant to wipe them away, your teeth are left exposed to the dangers of enamel wear, decay, cavities, and more.
What Can it Do?
Over-consumption of alcohol not only increases the risk for decay and cavities, it may also lead to more serious oral health concerns like oral cancer and gum disease. In fact, recent research has shown that excessive drinkers are three times more likely to suffer from serious gum disease than a non-drinker. Gum disease is a dangerous problem that not only affects the mouth, but can lead to more complicated issues throughout the body like heart disease, increased risk for stroke, and diabetic complications.
How to Protect Your Smile?
Drink water during or after you have the drinks. Anything that’s going to dilute the acid is good, and water will dilute the acid. If you’ve had a big night out, drink lots of water the next day, too.
Don’t brush your teeth straight away after drinking – it’s the worst time, you’re going to be brushing away the enamel. Wait 60 minutes because your enamel’s been softened by the acid you’ve been given, and you don’t want to make it worse.
Limit Alcohol Consumption. The best way to avoid problems caused by alcohol is to reduce the amount you have.
At Aesthetic Dental Arts in York PA, we’re dedicated to the health of our patients – both their oral health and overall health. Many times the first signs of an alcohol problem show in the mouth.

6 Habits That Harm Your Teeth (And How to Break Them):-
1) Nail Biting :-
The habit: This nervous habit can chip teeth and impact your jaw. “Placing your jaw for long periods of time in a protruding position can place pressure on it, which is associated with jaw dysfunction,” says Dr. Ruchi Sahota.
The solution: Bitter-tasting nail polishes, stress reduction and setting small, realistic goals can help. If certain situations are triggers, hold something to keep your fingers busy.
2) Brushing Too Hard:-
The habit: Brushing for two minutes twice a day is one of the best habits you can get into. Just make sure you’re not trying too hard. “Brushing with a hard toothbrush, or brushing too hard, can damage teeth and irritate gums,” says Dr. Matthew Messina.
The solution: Use a soft toothbrush with the ADA Seal of Acceptance at the proper pressure. “Don’t think ‘scrub.’ Think ‘massage,’" he says. “Save the hard toothbrush for cleaning the grout in the bathroom tile.”
3) Grinding and Clenching:-
The habit: “This can cause chipping or cracking of the teeth, as well as muscle tenderness or joint pain,” Dr. Messina says. “You might also feel like you can’t open your mouth wide or chew with pain.”
The solution: “Relaxation exercises and staying aware makes a difference,” he says. A nighttime mouthguard can also help. “You’ll have less tooth damage, less pain and muscle soreness and better sleep.”
4) Chewing Ice Cubes:-
The habit: “Tooth enamel is a crystal. Ice is a crystal. When you push two crystals against each other, one will break,” Dr. Messina says. “Most of the time it’s the ice, but sometimes the tooth or a filling will break.”
The solution: Drink chilled beverages without ice, or use a straw so you're not tempted. “The risk of chewing ice is greater than any pleasure that comes from chewing it,” he says. “Besides, ice is really cold!”
5) Constant Snacking :-
The habit: Grazing all day, especially on sugary foods and drinks, puts you at a higher risk for cavities. When you eat, cavity-causing bacteria feast leftover food, producing an acid that attacks the outer shell of your teeth.
The solution: Eat balanced meals to feel fuller, longer. If you need a snack, make sure it's low in fat and sugar. If you indulge in the occasional sugary treat, follow it with a big glass of water to wash away leftover food.
6) Using Your Teeth As Tools :-
The habit: Your teeth were made for eating, not to stand in as a pair of scissors or hold things when your hands are full. When you do this, you put yourself at a higher risk of cracking your teeth, injuring your jaw or accidentally swallowing something you shouldn’t.
The solution: Stop and find something or someone to give you a hand. Your mouth will thank you.

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and water. Minerals are added to and lost from a tooth's enamel layer every time we eat and drink through the process of demineralization and remineralization. Demineralization occurs when acids formed by plaque bacteria and sugars break down the tooth's enamel. Remineralization occurs when the minerals such as fluoride, calcium, and phosphate in the foods and drinks we consume redeposit into the enamel layer of the tooth. Too much demineralization with not enough remineralization causes decay ("cavities"). Fluoride helps to protect teeth by making them more resistant to the acids that cause tooth decay. In addition, fluoride treatments can sometimes reverse early tooth decay that has not yet broken through the enamel layer and decrease sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures.Please call (717) 755-4143 to schedule your appointment.

7 mistakes parents make with their kids’ teeth>> You know regular brushing, a healthy diet and dental visits are some of the best ways to prevent cavities, yet experts say many parents are falling short when it comes to oral hygiene. In fact, 42 percent of children ages 2 to 11 have had cavities in their baby teeth.

Here, find out the biggest mistakes dentists say parents are making and learn what you can do to keep your children’s teeth healthy throughout their lifetime.
“Take care of your teeth, and they’ll last a lifetime.” Sometimes, though, our habits get the best of us – and our teeth – and those habits often begin wreaking havoc long before we know they’re harmful.

Dental implants offer a modern way to replace missing teeth, with a long-term solution that is as close to your natural teeth as possible.
But what exactly is a dental implant? Essentially, it is a routine dentistry procedure to replace the full structure of a natural tooth. Whereas a denture or crown will fill the gap left by missing teeth, a tooth implant replaces the full root portion of the tooth and is fitted directly to your jawbone, making for a longer lasting, more functional and aesthetically pleasing solution. Millions of patients worldwide have successfully had dental implants fitted.
Can anyone have an implant?
To have an implant and be considered for false teeth, it is important that your teeth and gums are healthy. If there are any other problems, these will need to be treated first.
Given the nature of the procedure, you need to have healthy bone in your jaw in order for the implants to successfully fuse and become strong enough to support the replacement tooth. If you smoke, suffer from diabetes, have advanced gum disease or certain other medical conditions (on which your dentist can advise) the procedure may not be for you.
If you are eligible for an implant, it is highly recommended that you do not delay. Implants should ideally be fitted within one year of losing a tooth, as the jaw bone that surrounds a tooth immediately starts to shrink in size and eventually becomes so small that it will not support an implant.
