  • Can you bite an apple with implants?

    Absolutely! An implant should replace your missing tooth, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods. If you are having discomfort or mobility around an implant while chewing, it could mean there is an underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Check with your dentist to make sure your implants are well maintained and functioning properly! Steve Malek, DDS READ MORE

  • Can I use mouthwash every day?

    Yes! Mouthwash, in conjunction with brushing and flossing can help give your mouth a complete clean. Bacteria, in the form of plaque, does not only grow on teeth. It can also be found on your tongue and inside of your cheeks. Using mouthwash can help eliminate this bacteria that causes tooth decay and gum disease. It is important though, to discuss which mouthwash you should use with your dentist to help with your specific needs. For example, people who suffer from dry mouth should avoid mouthwash that contains alcohol. So check with your dentist on which one would work best for you! Steve Malek, DDS READ MORE

  • Can you replace dentures with implants?

    Implants are an effective way to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium posts that fuse to the jawbone, which function as a sturdy anchor for replacing teeth. Once secured into the bone, an abutment and crown are then fabricated on top of the implant to function as a normal tooth. They are designed to match your existing smile and are typically an excellent long-term option to restore complete functionality of your teeth. If you are missing one tooth or need a full mouth re-construction, dental implants may be a great option! Why implants: 1. Dental implants are 95% to 98% successful. 2. They are stronger and more stable than dentures. 3. They cannot decay like natural teeth. 4. They can be brushed and flossed as regular teeth. 5. There is no need to crown adjacent teeth for a bridge. 6. It helps preserve your bone height and width. 7. It’s a comfortable and fixed solution. Sincerely, Steve Malek, DDS READ MORE

  • Can cavities on the side of the tooth be filled?

    Absolutely! Cavities anywhere on the tooth need to be treated so they do not spread and get larger. The larger a cavity becomes, the higher the likelihood the tooth may need further treatments like a root canal, crown or even extraction. If you know you have a cavity, do not delay! Get it fixed as soon as possible. Thanks, JM READ MORE
