AARP Information Center
AARP Tax preparers at the Westland Friendship Senior Center on Newburg rd. in Westland MI have changed this year. Old people who have been getting taxes done there now have to stand out in the cold an hour before the doors are unlocked just to be put on a waiting list. One problem that I can see is that they now do taxes for people who are not even old enough to be an AARP member. Young people can handle waiting out in the cold between 8 & 9 A.M. to get on the list for the day. Today I told them I am on depression & anxiety medication and I am too old to be standing in the cold. I said I am not in a rush to get taxes done. I just can’t keep coming down there after the doors open and can't even get an appointment for the next week or even in March 2015. That doesn't make sense.

They tell you everything you need to know about the problems in your mouth and let you decide which ones you can afford to fix in order of seriousness. I got a payment plan that I can afford and as long as I make my payments on time they do the work. 1/2 down and no interest payments. I feel good about my smile.

This organization is successful, but it doesn't have to be. Their mission, itself, is successful!
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
