Your family dentist in Newtown is here to explain why taking care of primary (baby) teeth is so important.

For many people, the answer is yes wisdom teeth do need to be removed. However, there are a lucky few who get to retain their third molars. The only way to know for sure whether or not your wisdom teeth will need to be extracted is to schedule a consultation with a trusted dentist. The dental practitioner will capture x-rays and visually examine your bite to determine whether or not the wisdom teeth will be able to erupt within the current bite alignment without damaging surrounding teeth. If the dentist determines you are likely to experience impaction or other complications, wisdom tooth extraction will be recommended to ensure you maintain the optimal level of oral health.

If you dread hearing the question, “How often do you floss,” from your dentist you’re in good company. If you only floss the week before and after your dental checkups, you’re still flossing more often than most people in the US.

In fact, for the first week or more that you floss, your gums may feel puffy, itchy, or even bleed. For many patients who just can’t get past the initial discomfort of traditional flossing, investing in a Waterpik or other water flossers may be a better solution.
