5 Fun Things to Do in Santa Rosa

Posted on

While browsing the web I saw this post about fun things we can do here in Santa Rosa. Please check this post.

Smack dab in the heart of Northern California’s Wine Country, the vibrant city of Santa Rosa blends the pleasures of urban culture with the romance inherent in its beautiful countryside.

It’s the perfect destination for people who want to spend their days wine tasting, exploring back-country roads, and engaging in outdoor adventures … and their nights enjoying top-notch arts and entertainment performances or cuisine ranging from comfort-food cafés to Michelin-starred restaurants.

Here are five fun things to do while you’re in town:

1. Visit Luther Burbank Home & Gardens
Known as the Wizard of Horticulture, Luther Burbank was 27 when he moved from Massachusetts to Santa Rosa in 1875. A self-educated agricultural scientist who had already developed the Russet Burbank potato, he would go on to develop about 800 plant creations in Sonoma County’s mild climate and year-round growing season. Among his big successes are the Santa Rosa Plum, July Elberta peach, Flaming Gold nectarine, and Shasta daisy.

The Greek-Revival home where Burbank lived from 1884 to 1906 is now a National Historic Landmark open to the public. The grounds also contain a greenhouse, one acre of gardens planted with Burbank creations, and his grave. The house’s furnishings are original, and the former carriage house is now a museum/gift shop.

Charming and serene, it’s all located in downtown Santa Rosa, which was open countryside when Burbank took up residence. Luther Burbank Home & Gardens 204 Santa Rosa Ave., Santa Rosa, 707-524-5445. See more about this article: http://www.sonomacounty.com/articles/5-fun-things-do-santa-rosa

and while you are visiting Santa Rosa and need dental help call Hammer and Bonin at 707-526-6160.

Valentine’s Day: Top 5 Romantic Films

By Beau Behan, Film Critic:

It is that time of the year when the scent of a red rose just seems to linger eternally. Chocolates are suddenly luscious, and whispers of sweetness are simply ravishing. It is that special moment when romance and love are intertwined for lovers to savor.

Yes! — It is Valentine’s Day, the time to celebrate that “greatest feeling of all.” For many, an elaborate evening out will certainly spark the fireworks: enjoying a sumptuous dinner, sipping graceful wine, and dancing until the wee hours of the morning. For others, simplicity is their preference: enjoying a home-cooked meal paired with their favorite wine and watching a romantic movie. Does it sound simple enough? Not really.

Wisdom Teeth, What Are They and What Problems Do They Pose to You?

Posted on

For those that do develop them, there are all sorts of possibilities and complications that can arise. If we want to know more about wisdom teeth let’s read the article of Dr. Priveer Sharma

Wisdom Teeth

“Wisdom teeth,” a rather curious name for teeth if you think about it, is the folklore name for third molar teeth, which usually make their appearance later in life. So-called because a moderate amount of wisdom is supposedly achieved at about the same time these teeth typically make their appearance, between the ages of 17 and 25. Interestingly, current research shows that the brain is not fully mature until age 25, so there may actually be some truth to the myth.

Most adults have four wisdom teeth; although, it is possible to have more (supernumerary teeth) or fewer to none at all (hypodontia). However, there is little wisdom to the problems that seem to be associated with them more often than not. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop by becoming impacted, coming in sideways, or in fact it seems — every which way, but up!

Though wisdom teeth certainly don’t play a large role or serve as much purpose as the other teeth or molars in your mouth, they can certainly cause many problems. Perhaps the best attention for them comes from your dentist, who can continually x-ray your mouth and monitor what your wisdom teeth are doing. The dentist can make recommendations for extraction of your wisdom teeth before they ever start to cause problems in your mouth. Let’s read an article from Jennifer Flach

Should You Have Your Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Jennifer Flach was a college junior when her wisdom teeth started making themselves known.

“My other teeth started moving around,” she remembers. “The wisdom teeth were pushing out and undoing some of the orthodontic work I had done in high school.”

At the same time, her brother — who’s two years younger and was also in college — had no symptoms. But the family dentist suggested his wisdom teeth should come out too.

Jen and her brother had back-to-back wisdom tooth extractions and recovered together at home during spring break. “It was quite a week at my parents’ house,” she says.

Your dentist may recommend following a few simple guidelines for the days following the surgery. For example, you want to avoid rinsing your mouth for the first twenty-four hours after surgery. If you are concern about this kind of issue kindly please check our site or give us a call.

Affordable Dentures for all

Posted on

If you are trying to find affordable dentures, take a few steps in order to make the search a little easier for yourself. Dental costs have become increasingly more expensive. Let’s read an article of Doug Bonderud

Affordable Dentures: The Real Costs of Prosthodontics

Got dentures? If you want to keep them looking their best as long as possible, avoid hard or very sticky foods, clean them properly every night, and make sure you don’t wear them too long.

While dental implants can last a lifetime with proper home care and dental treatment, expect to replace dentures every five years no matter how diligent you are about cleaning them. The cost to replace a full or partial set of dentures can be significant, so it’s worth it to get high-quality, affordable dentures.

Are you also wondering  how dentures are made? Let’s read the article of Tracey Sandilands for more information about dentures.

What Are Dentures Made Of?

It’s been a long time since tooth loss was managed using animal teeth and pieces of bone in their place. George Washington famously sported a set of dentures made from lead, human teeth, cow teeth and elephant ivory, according to Smithsonian Magazine. What are dentures made of in the 21st century, and what are the oral benefits of this technology?

The Teeth

The teeth of a denture are typically made from various types of resin or porcelain. The latter was traditionally the preferred material because it was stronger and more durable, according to David L. Baker, DDS. Porcelain is still used in some instances and has a number of advantages:

More about Invisalign

Posted on

Invisalign is one of the newest ways to straighten your teeth and get the smile you’ve always wanted. If you’re choosing between straightening your teeth the traditional way or using Invisalign, make sure you’re well-informed on both options. Let’s read an article of Rebecca.

After Invisalign….Essix Retainers, Vivera or Fixed?

When I first started Invisalign, the time when I would finally be wearing retainers seemed like such a distant prospect that I barely even allowed myself to give it a second thought. In my imagination, a day when I would have good teeth was a day that I dreamt about, but not one that I ever REALLY thought might come.

As I mentioned in my last post, my upper teeth have now been happily ensconsed in retainers for some time, and I thought those of you still on your journey to get that to that point, might like to see what the different retainers look like.

Let’s read the next article of Darren Flowers, DMD that will give us some idea if braces are way better that Invisalign.

Are braces better than Invisalign?

Orthodontic treatments that use either braces or Invisalign are just few of the many techniques used by dental professionals in straightening the teeth of their patients. They straighten teeth to give them an ideal position, improve their look, and promote proper function. Invisalign utilizes a set of clear plastic trays as a means of achieving the position. Traditional braces, on the other hand, usually make use of metal wires with an aim of getting the most ideal movement or position for the teeth.

The use of Invisalign is an efficient method for tooth movements that are not too complicated. A set of clear, computer-generated trays is ideally worn 24 hours a day with change-outs every two weeks. There are certain trays that can last for six months to one year. However, these require some form of retention to prevent the teeth from shifting back. One of its best advantages is that the trays are relatively invisible. Hence the name Invisalign.

I used to wear braces and my teeth have since shifted. Can Invisalign help?
Many of the more than 1 million wearers of Invisalign have worn braces in their past and have experienced shifting afterward. Invisalign can usually correct the problem without having to go through the social awkwardness associated with wearing metal braces.
