We all like to give a helping hand to other people, but I know from research that a lot of our charitable donations don't actually make it to where we want it to go. According to MoneySense magazine (2010, 2011, 2012) Chalice is the number one Canadian charity providing International Aid and Development (a 93% efficiency rating). We at 22nd @ Taylor Dental Care have chosen this year to sponsor a 9 year old girl from Cameroon through Chalice.
So when things are breaking down in your mouth; it leads to eventual pain, greater expense and an unesthetic smile that ages us more than wrinkles.
Repair worn teeth as soon as possible to keep the expense down and reduce the future need for root canals or extractions. It's worth the expense, even when dental plans won't cover the work, because it's only going to get worse-- teeth, gums, muscles and joints never fix themselves.
If you are under 60 yrs. old and your front teeth have worn sharp edges then your mouth is headed for severe break downs. And you don't want expensive dental bills and painful toothaches or painful dental treatment like extractions done when you are retired and on a limited income. Deal with signs of instability when you can afford it and before it becomes a big deal.
Signs to look for: sensitive teeth. excessive wear on the front teeth. any wear on the back teeth. breaking teeth. a history of root canals not from a traumatic accident. gum recession. gum disease. tooth decay even though you brush and floss. sore jaws. clicking joints.
We recommend a thorough complete examination including a series of photos, models of your teeth and gums, and assessment of your jaw positioning to diagnose and coordinate a treatment plan that suits your needs.
