b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_294243569.jpgWhether you are already missing teeth or you are facing the loss of a permanent tooth, an increasingly popular solution is the installation of dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent prosthetic tooth (crown) that secures via a metal post that is implanted into the jaw. When properly installed, the crown looks and feels just like a natural tooth. But in order to achieve a flawless installation, there are some steps you should take before you even lose the tooth your crown is replacing. If you’re considering dental implants, here are some facts you should consider.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_404002636.jpgBe honest: When you think about wearing braces, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? For most adults, it's probably those already-awkward teen years spent with your teeth crisscrossed in painful metal brackets that not only made you feel self-conscious, but also robbed you of the many joys of teen and preteen fun, like bubblegum, potato chips and, yes, even first kisses. But today, braces – and the faces of those who wear them – are changing. Braces aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, here at Dr. Abelar’s practice, the average age of braces wearers is not a tender 14, but 40!

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_331734899.jpgThe new year is in full swing, bringing with it new goals, new resolutions and, yes, even new insurance plans. For many Americans, a new policy, or changes to an old policy, can be very stressful, especially if your coverage has changed.

One area where coverage can often be seriously lacking is in dental care. In fact, even though more Americans have dental coverage today than ever before, out-of-pocket costs have never been higher. So even if you do have insurance, there’s a good chance you’re still paying more money out of pocket than you would have 20 years ago for the same services. For an individual, these costs can be hard to manage - but for a family, they can be devastating.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_358326896.jpgWhen reports surfaced earlier this year that the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS) was facing major budget shortages, many United Kingdom residents who benefit from NHS services were unsure what to expect. With British dentists reportedly turning children away and charitable organizations that normally provide dental care to impoverished communities in Third World countries setting up shop in England to address the dental crisis, it was only a matter of time before shockwaves of the funding cuts hit other areas of the United Kingdom.

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_266568947.jpgAccording to a recent report by Daniel Wesley at CreditLoan.com, Americans work more hours than any other workers on Earth. In fact, Wesley claims that 66.5 percent of women and 85.8 percent of men work over 40 hours per week. That doesn’t leave a whole lot of free time - or time to see the dentist. But a new app created by former hedge fund analyst Eva Sadej could soon change that.
