Don’t Get Kicked in the Teeth – At Least Wear a Mouth Guard
According to the American Dental Association, at least 13% of all injuries to the mouth occur during sports activities. While helmets, shoulder pads, shin guards, and the like do a great job of protecting most of the body, Dr. Sevey & Dr. Atwell would like to make sure that every athlete knows how to keep their teeth safe from harm. No Bangor parent should have to worry about their child’s teeth during the game, so at Creative Dental Solutions we would like to talk about how to take sports safety to the next level.

You did it! You got the consultation, booked the appointment, and you actually showed up on the big day. You saw the dentist and now all of that effort has left you hungry! The question is: what can you eat after having dental work done?
For some of us, it’s nostalgic to remember having a frozen treat after the dentist as kids, or attempting to say such bouncy words as “baby” with a numb jaw. However—depending on how extensive your dental work is—you will need to be cautious of what you consume in the days following major dental work. And milkshakes will only get you so far in recovery, anyway.
Many foods can be troublesome after dental surgery or extensive dental work. Ask Dr. Sevey & Dr. Atwell for their recommendation about specific foods and for how long you should avoid them. Creative Dental Solutions in Bangor can be an especially helpful resource for patients navigating what to eat after dental restoration services. Read more ›

We all remember losing our teeth as children and being delighted to find money from the tooth fairy under our pillow, but it’s just not as fun as an adult. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, adults between the ages of 20 and 64 have an average of 25 permanent teeth remaining, which is three shy of a full set (minus wisdom teeth). Dr. Sevey & Dr. Atwell want everyone in Bangor to know that replacing a missing tooth is important to your dental health. Read on for more information and please give Creative Dental Solutions a call with any questions or concerns.
