Retainers are appliances you should wear once you remove your braces. They are either permanent or removable.  A permanent or fixed retainer is, basically, a piece of metal wire attached to the inner side of your teeth. The metal wire is glued to your teeth to hold them in place so that they don’t move back to their pre-braces position.  Your orthodontist may advise you to use a removable retainer for the upper teeth and a fixed retainer for the lower. As fixed retainers are more convenient, they are becoming popular, especially among people with a busy lifestyle. Are you wondering whether permanent retainers are the right choice for you?  In this article, I discuss how permanent retainers work and describe their benefits and drawbacks. How Do Permanent Retainers Work? A permanent retainer is commonly referred to as a lingual wire because it is fixed to the back surfaces of

Dentists have recommended fluoride toothpaste for stronger cavity-resistant teeth for decades.1 It is still considered the “gold standard” in dental schools, despite its safety concerns. But there’s a new ingredient in town proven to be just as effective as fluoride and completely non-toxic. It’s called hydroxyapatite. Hydroxyapatite toothpaste has replaced fluoride toothpaste as what I recommend to all of my patients. But what is hydroxyapatite toothpaste? In this blog post, we will learn about hydroxyapatite and take a look at how fluoride compares with it.  How Does Fluoride Toothpaste Work? Your teeth have an outer covering called enamel that is made up of calcium and phosphate. Your saliva also contains calcium and phosphate that constantly bathe your teeth. These minerals keep your teeth strong. Bacteria found in cavities can break down food particles and create an acidic environment in your mouth. This acidic environment is harsh and can strip away
