Benefits of the Waterlase – Laser Therapy

Millions of people think that when they brush or floss their teeth that it’s normal for the gums to bleed, however, bleeding of the gums is a sign of poor oral health and buildup of bacterial infection. Gums that are bleeding and swollen may be signs of early periodontal disease, also known as gum disease.

PERIODONTAL DISEASE

Periodontal disease occurs when the bacteria in plaque starts to accumulate on the teeth, damaging your gums and the bone surrounding the teeth. Your gums will then become inflamed, which causes the easy bleeding of the gums when brushing or flossing.

Recent studies have found age and genetics linked to the development of periodontal disease. If you are a smoker then you have a higher risk of periodontal disease.

There are a few treatment options to treating periodontal disease, such as scaling and root planning, medications, laser dental treatment, and more.

LASER DENTISTRY

Depending on the stage of your periodontal disease, our dentist may recommend laser dentistry as your best option. Our state-of-the-art Waterlase will be used during your laser therapy treatment. So what is the Waterlase? Waterlase is an advanced dental tool used to replace traditional drills, it uses laser energy and water. WaterLase is an advanced dental tool that uses laser energy and water by replacing traditional drills as one of the most effective method of treatment.

THE BENEFITS OF THE WATERLASE

Here are five major benefits of using the Waterlase on your periodontal disease treatment:

  1. Pain-Free: there is little to no anesthesia required
  2. Faster Healing: it reduces bleeding and swelling of your gums
  3. More Accurate & Precise: reduced chance of hairline fractures in the teeth and the removal of healthy areas of the teeth
  4. More Convenience: experience less dental visits and chair time
  5. Fear-Free: less noise compared to traditional drilling

Do not settle for inconvenience and painful dental treatments. Dentistry should be easy and comfortable. At Advanced DDS, we are constantly upgrading our technology and equipment to provide our patients with a more comfortable, convenient and safe experience with state of the art technology.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

Have you created your back to school check list? A back to school check list can help you stay organized and stress-free. On your check list, you may want to include new clothes, new shoes, school supplies, etc. but make sure that you include your regular dental check-up.

Your regular dental check-up is extremely important since it will help prevent and detect any dental problems such as impacted wisdom teeth that may cause permanent damage to your teeth, gums, or bones.

There are millions of impacted wisdom teeth removals each year by Oral Surgeons. At your Garden City Dentist, we recommend students schedule the removal of their impacted wisdom teeth during the summer, a few weeks before school starts, because there are a few days recommended for recovery.

Your Oral Surgeon will provide you with your post-operation instructions on how to care for your mouth after your oral surgery. These instructions will include what is needed if your experiencing bleed, swelling, pain and dry sockets. Additional instructions include your diet, oral hygiene, activity, healing, sutures/stitches, antibiotics and what foods to drink and eat the next few days.

Call us today at 516-825-1100 to schedule your regular dental check-up or wisdom teeth removal at Advanced DDS & Advanced Children’s Dentistry.

Impacted Wisdom Teeth:

Your wisdom teeth, also known as your third molar, are the last set of teeth to develop. For some individuals, their wisdom teeth emerge from the gum line and their jaw is large enough to allow room without damaging their other teeth, gums, and bone. However, this is not the case for a majority of individuals and more often these wisdom teeth fail to emerge properly or becomes impacted between the jawbone and gum tissue.

If you have an impacted wisdom tooth you may experience swelling, pain and infection around the tooth but not everyone experiences these symptoms. Your impacted wisdom teeth may cause permanent damage if not removed such as the development of cysts or tumors that can destroy sections of your jaw.Oral Surgery Infographic

Bad Breath 101: How to Avoid Bad Breath

Going on a blind date can be stressful from planning what to eat, what to wear and how to impress your date. On Match.com, 43% of people said fresh breath mattered the most on a date. At Advanced DDS, your Garden City dentist, we want to make sure your smile is ready to impress.

Bad breath, also known as halitosis, can be caused by a number of things. It can be affected by the food you eat such as garlic, onions, sweets and acidic food. Sometimes bad breath is caused by xerostomia, also known as dry mouth. Dry mouth is a common problem that most people experience and over long amounts of time can lead to bad breath. An easy fix for this is just making sure your mouth is moistened by drinking plenty of water or chewing sugar free gum. Try to stay away from dehydrating liquids, such as coffee and alcohol.

Smoking and chewing tobacco are hazardous to your health as well as your breath and teeth. Smoking and poor oral hygiene may lead to gingivitis, and when untreated can lead to periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. Bad breath along with swollen gums, loose teeth and bleeding of the gums may be the signs of gum disease. If gum disease is left untreated, you may lose your teeth. Click here for more information on Periodontal Disease.

The most common reason for bad breath is poor oral hygiene. Bad breath may also be caused by cavities, cracked fillings, dirty dentures and other oral problems.

Tips to reduce plaque buildup:

1. Brush your teeth 2xs a day for at least 2 min

2. Floss once a day

3. Rinse your mouth with mouth was

4. Brush your tongue

5. Visit your dentist every 3-6 months

Let’s stay fresh and fight bad breath together. Call Advanced DDS at 516-825-1100 to reserve your dental care appointment.

Did You Know:

Teeth whitening breaks down the discoloration deep inside your teeth to give a brighter and whiter tooth color.

Cavities: One Hole Of A Problem

Tooth decay is a nasty oral disease that occurs in people of all ages, though it occurs more often in children. At Advanced DDS, your Garden City dentist, we want to make sure you understand what tooth decay is, how to prevent it and why it is imperative to receive treatment right away.

What is Tooth Decay?

Tooth decay, also known as cavities occur when the bacteria that live in your mouth interact with sugary and starchy foods left on your teeth. This process creates acids which erode your enamel (or protective coating). With the enamel eroding, the teeth become weakened and that can lead to cavities. Cavities are holes on your teeth that become enlarged when not treated properly. As progress your teeth may become sensitive or painful. However, you may not be aware you have a cavity in the primary stages.

Treatment for Tooth Decay

At Advanced DDS we can easily help treat cavities. We provide a thorough examination to confirm that you have a cavity and not another dental condition. We will then reserve an appointment for you to receive treatment. One of the benefits of coming to Advanced DDS is we use the most advanced technology available. The STA, also known as the Single Tooth Anesthesia, is a device which only numbs a single tooth instead of the traditional technique of numbing a large are of the face. This means that after the procedure you can eat and drink normally instead of having to wait for the anesthesia to ware off. After you are numb, we will proceed to remove all the decay and place a tooth colored filling. Our doctors take special care to ensure that your tooth will return to its normal function and shape.

What Happens to Untreated Cavities?

An untreated cavity will progressively get worse and the pain will intensify. The longer a cavity is left untreated, the more likely that you will need to get a root canal or even having the tooth extracted. Not only will the symptoms get worse, but the cost of treating the tooth will increase as well. Untreated oral disease can lead to other health issues including heart disease, osteoporosis, and diabetes among many more. We suggest reserving an appointment with advanced DDS right away if you suspect there may be an issue.

How to Prevent Tooth Decay from Occurring

There are several things you can do to prevent cavities, such as:

  • Brushing your teeth at least twice a day for two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste
  • Clean between your teeth daily with floss
  • Limit your intake of sugary drinks and foods
  • Chew sugar free gum or candy
  • Rinse your mouth with water for thirty seconds after eating
  • Visit your dentist every six months for your preventive care appointment
