Insurance Makes Dental Care More Accessible and Affordable

When most people think of choosing health plans, their primary focus is typically for medical matters. But dental insurance is just as important. It can help pay for most types of dental care and be a financial safety net if you need to undergo a more complex dental procedure. At the office of Mainland Dental […]


Beautiful Smiles Start with Healthy Teeth and Gums

The normal adult mouth has 32 teeth that are as unique as your fingerprints. But lurking in the back of your mouth are two extra molars, which most people do not have enough room in their mouth to hold. In these cases, the extra molars (known as wisdom teeth) can be extracted to prevent them […]


Jaw Pain Could Signal a TMJ Disorder

If you place your hands directly below your ears, on either side of your face, you’ll find the temporomandibular joints, or TMJ for short. These joints are among the most complex in the entire human body and, like all joints, they can become painful and inflamed. At the office of Mainland Dental Associates, we provide […]


Let Go of Your Dental Fear

Many people who have an aversion to dental visits go to them anyway. But other folks’ aversions are so major they don’t go at all. When people never or hardly ever go to the dentist, they’re harming their teeth and overall oral health. This evasion can result in a multitude of conditions: cavities, plaque, tartar, […]


Oral Care Habits Change as You Age

At Mainland Dental Associates, we focus on preventive care to halt the onset and progress of […]


“Heavens! Does My Breath Offend?”

Many of us have a case of it when we wake up — morning breath. But for some, morning breath sticks around all day, every day. They suffer from halitosis, or bad breath, which can take a toll on one’s self-confidence and social life. Bad breath is typically the result of poor dental hygiene — […]


Dental Implants Let You Smile With Confidence

Once you lose your baby teeth and your adult teeth come in, you might figure that’s that – they’re in for life. Not so! Studies show that by age 50, a large majority of adults will have lost one or more teeth due to disease or injury. With today’s dental technologies, there’s no need for […]
