Whether you are currently a denture wearer or having missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may want to consider dental implants. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants substitute for both the crowns and roots of missing teeth. And also unlike those other options, dental implants are generally not covered by insurance at this time. You may want to check your medical plan, which may offer coverage depending on the reason for your tooth loss. In any case, if you are considering dental implants in Phoenix, be sure to talk with the team at any one of the Smile Fitness Dental Centers locations. We’ll be happy to discuss various ways you can afford your new smile.

Contrary to popular belief, there is a correct and incorrect way to floss your teeth. It’s just as important as brushing and can help you achieve optimal oral health. After every meal you consume, food particles become lodged in between your teeth and under the gum line. If food particles are left in between teeth, it can lead to bacterial buildup that can leave your teeth at risk of becoming infected. Flossing can give your oral health a major boost when done correctly. Too often, people either don’t spend enough time flossing or are performing the task incorrectly.
At Smile Fitness Dental Centers, we care deeply about the state of your oral health. Great oral health encourages good overall health, which is very beneficial for your wellbeing. Flossing, along with brushing your teeth, is one of the best preventive dentistry methods. Dr. Gordon and Dr. Green are the dentists Glendale and Phoenix, AZ residents can trust for valuable dental advice.

If you lost your shoes, chances are you wouldn’t think about going to the store to buy just one shoe to replace them both, so why does it make sense to only replace one half your lost tooth? The short answer is – it doesn’t. Traditional tooth replacement solutions only renewed those parts of teeth that were visible above the gum line, but without the supportive underlying root system, these replacement teeth relied on surrounding dental structures for support. In order to provide the most natural restoration, we may recommend patients consider our dental implant supported tooth replacement options.
