Dental Tips of the Day
Getting the necessary care without UNNECESSARY RADIATION
While x-rays are invaluable to a dentist in helping to diagnose dental problems, many patients are concerned about the radiation exposure. In our office we have eliminated these worries by using digital x-rays or Computed Dental Radiography, which requires up to 90% less radiation than conventional film. CDR imaging can reveal things that conventional x-rays cannot. The images can be magnified 300x their normal size to enhance a diagnosis. They can also be manipulated to correct contrast and the color can be adjusted to reveal hidden problems. So worry no more! If you need an x-ray in our office, you can rest assured that you will be not be exposed to harmful radiation.
YOUR CHILD'S FIRST VISIT
When is the best time for your child's first visit to the dentist? The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that the first visit be within six months of the first tooth eruption. At our office, we take this opportunity, at no cost to you, to welcome your child into our dental practice and introduce him/her to our warm and child-friendly staff. This is really an informal and pleasant experience for your child.
Many moms (and dads) bring their babies with them when they have their own teeth cleaned. Afterwards, while they are holding their child in their laps, we do an informal dental exam for your child, again, at no cost to you! During this time, Dr. Gladnick will assess the health of your child's gums and first teeth. He will also advise parents as to optimal nutrition and home care. We look forward to meeting your pride and joy!
SNORE NO MORE!
During sleep, the muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth relax. This shrinks the airway and increases the velocity of airflow as you breathe. This results in "noisy breathing" or snoring. The irritating noise isn't the only problem. The struggle for breath can result in soaring blood pressure, which can damage the walls of the carotid arteries and increase the risk of stroke.
Dr. Gladnick offers a custom-fabricated snore prevention device called Silent Nite s1. The device is comfortable and small. It essentially moves the lower jaw forward, increasing space in the airway tube, allowing uninhibited breathing and eliminating snoring. Call our office at (302) 994-2661 to make an appointment and SNORE NO MORE.
