Debunking Dental Myths

By October 15, 2021No Comments

North Andover cosmetic dental and tooth implants

In this post from Future of Dentistry we focus on three common myths about dental health.

  • All Sugar Is Equally Bad For Teeth. We all know that sugar increases our risk of tooth decay, but some types are worse than others. Sugar-based foods that sit on the teeth are more dangerous than those that are swallowed immediately. For example, sipping a soda or sucking on a mint can be worse than eating a candy bar all at once.
  • You Don’t Need To Worry About Baby Teeth Because They Will Fall Out Anyway. Healthy primary teeth serve several important purposes. They allow the child to eat and speak properly. They retain proper spacing of teeth. A healthy smile instills confidence and self-esteem. Healthy baby teeth eliminate the pain of decay which disrupts normal daily activity.
  • Pulling A Tooth Is A Good Alternative To A Root Canal. We will let the American Associate of Endodontists explain this one: “Saving your natural teeth, if possible, is the very best option … [root canals], along with appropriate restoration, is a cost-effective way to treat teeth with damaged pulp and is usually less expensive than extraction and placement of a bridge or an implant. [It] also has a very high success rate.”
