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 color adjusted to reveal hidden problems.  So worry no more!  If you need an xray 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 Pediactric Dentistry recommends that the first visit be within six months of the first tooth erruption.  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!

 

Dental Health and Diabetes

You may think that this does not concern you, because you do not have diabetes.  Are you sure?  Red puffy gums, progressive bone loss (as indicated on digital x-rays), and gum abrasions or inflammation that does not heal normally are all symptoms of possible diabetes.  During routine dental examinations, we have often suspected blood sugar problems in patients  who manifest these conditions, and have subsequently referred patients to their physicians for further study, and have confirmed our initial diagnostic suspicions. This holistic approach to dental examinations is yet another benefit of our six month dental check ups.
