Can You Really Get a New Smile in One Day?

At Appalachian Dental Care in Boone, NC, we understand how dental problems can impact your life. For instance, if you’ve been living with dental problems like missing teeth, or teeth that aren’t as healthy as they need to be, you’ve already discovered that life without good teeth can be a real pain. Missing or sore teeth can lead to chewing on the other side which can stress those teeth and cause muscle imbalances that can lead to headaches. Sharp foods like chips can poke or even cut your gums. Hard foods like nuts can irritate your gums. And you may be more prone to gum disease. ...


Help for Your Gums

At Appalachian Dental Care in Boone, NC, we take gum disease very seriously. We think our patients should, too. Gum disease begins when the bacteria that live in everyone’s mouths interact with a protein found in saliva. That creates a thin, sticky, invisible film called plaque. Plaque forms around the teeth on the gum line and adheres, keeping bacteria in close contact with the gum tissue and the teeth. The bacteria in plaque feed off the sugars in our foods and secrete acids that attack the hard enamel covering our teeth. The acids also irritate the gums. If plaque is left alone to do ...


Don’t Fear the Root Canal

There’s a lot of myths and misinformation when it comes to root canal procedures. At Appalachian Dental Care in Boone, NC, we think it’s time to set the record straight.

If those bacteria are left in close contact with your gums and tooth surfaces, they’ll eventually begin irritating your gums and eroding your tooth enamel. Regular brushing and flossing remove the plaque that keep those bacteria next to teeth and gums. That’s  why dentists and dental hygienists keep ...

4 Ways Dental Implants Can Impact Your Life

Here at Appalachian Dental Care, we love helping patients achieve beautiful, function smiles … and that sometimes means replacing teeth! For decades, the standard for replacing missing teeth was the dental bridge. We still do plenty of bridges, but there’s another technique that offers a lot of benefits that bridges don’t. Dental implants are the big thing in replacing teeth now, and for good reason. Implants are very strong and supply the most secure anchorage for single crowns, bridges, and even full-arch dentures. Restorations on implants tend to last longer as a rule. If you’re ...
