Wisdom Teeth Extraction


At one time in the history of man, wisdom teeth (or third molars) were most likely an important part of our entire tooth structure, but that is no longer true. Because of a lack of adequate space in the jawbone for them, wisdom teeth that usually come in somewhere in our late teen years, often come in sideways pushing at an already established tooth, which causes the wisdom tooth to only partially erupt through the gums, or in some cases, it does not push through the gums at all and stays impacted under the surface.

It becomes necessary to remove some or all of your wisdom teeth when they cause or may cause problems in your mouth. Bacteria can grow around a partially erupted wisdom tooth causing periodontal disease or food can get caught between the wisdom tooth and the adjoining tooth creating tooth decay in both teeth. When wisdom teeth are impacted or pushing against other teeth, they may impede in the health of the teeth around. They may even cause your teeth to shift and become misaligned as they attempt to make room for the wisdom teeth.

When a fully erupted wisdom tooth needs to be extracted, it is pulled like any other tooth. However, if the tooth is partially or fully impacted under the gum line and in the jawbone, an incision has to be made in the gums and the tooth, as well as a portion of the bone that is covering the impacted tooth, has to be removed. Your dental surgeon will use local or general anesthetics to prevent you from feeling any pain.

Recovery from wisdom teeth extraction usually takes a few days, while the area from which the teeth were extracted heals. Plan to spend a few days resting and eating soft foods, while your gums heal.

Teeth Whitening


Restore your natural smile!
Do you have stained or yellowing teeth? Visit Smile Focus today and get your teeth whitened to get the bright smile you deserve! Teeth whitening is a simple process that can brighten up your smile and get rid of the stains on your teeth. Your dentist will advise two agents for the teeth whitening process; hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide which are bleaching agents that break down the stains on your teeth. Whitening toothpastes contain agents which can polish the teeth and are effective at removing stains. During your in-office whitening, your dentist will apply a bleach to help whiten your teeth and may use a special laser or light to facilitate the action of the bleach. For bleaching your teeth at home, a weaker bleach in the form of a gel or a strip may be used to make the teeth whiter.

Since tooth whitening is not effective on all teeth
your dentist will advise you whether the process will work for you. Tooth whitening works better on teeth which are yellowing than on teeth which have become brown or gray.

Why do your teeth stain despite regualr brushing?
Certain foods and drinks can stain your teeth; drinks like coffee, tea and wine have pigments which attach to the outer part of your tooth and color it. Smoking and tobacco use may also stain teeth. Certain medications, age, and even injury can cause discoloration in the teeth and make them appear yellowish.

Don’t let yellowing teeth bring you down, get your confidence and your beautiful smile back today by getting your teeth whitened at Smile Focus!
