Teeth hold up to extreme hot and cold temperatures.
Each of our precious teeth is challenged by tremendous threats on a daily basis. Inside of the mouth, temperatures can range from freezing to boiling hot. The teeth are constantly subjected to acid, pathogenic bacteria, and incredible forces of more than 120 pounds per square inch! Yet, even with so many challenges, we expect our teeth to go the distance with us. Doesn’t everyone in Fairbanks want their teeth to last forever?
A major goal in modern dentistry is to keep the teeth healthy and structurally sound to give each patient a better chance of holding onto their smile for a lifetime. However, when you take the harsh oral environment into account, you’ll realize that preserving the teeth is a challenging job. It is fortunate that the mind-blowing advances in dentistry are helping us to keep our natural teeth longer than ever, but there are many preventive measures that can also add years to our smiles.
