How To Deal With Dental Fear

Do you feel extremely nervous when you visit our office? Or do you or a loved one have extreme fear of the dentist and it is keeping you from receiving the dental treatment you desperately need? If so, you are not alone. There are a number of dental patients who experience a range of feelings that vary from slight nervousness all the way to severe anxiety. Our goal is to help our patients overcome their feelings to get the treatment they need. We know that there are certain patients who benefit from an outside source to help with their feelings. This is the reason we offer sedation dentistry to our patients. Continue reading to learn more about how sedation dentistry may benefit you or a loved one.

Are You Sure You’re Cleaning Your Teeth Properly?

Since we see you so infrequently during the year, the bulk of your oral health falls on your shoulders.

Even though you have been brushing your teeth and caring for them since your youth, you may be surprised to learn that you are cleaning your teeth incorrectly.

Tooth Enamel Damage

If you are experiencing persistent tooth sensitivity issues or have tooth discomfort, your tooth enamel may be compromised. Although your tooth enamel, the covering of your teeth, is the hardest substance in your body, it can become damaged if not cared for properly. Your tooth enamel is put to the test multiple times a day when you eat, but there are often other reasons for damage.

Why Choose A Holistic Dentist?

At Joel D. Singer, DMD, we provide dental care with a focus on your overall health and well-being. We are unlike other dental practices in that we don’t treat your mouth as separate from your body. We understand that the mouth and the body are connected, and, in many ways, what is happening in your mouth relates to what is occurring in your body and vice versa. Dr. Singer still performs many of the same dental treatments you might find in other offices, but his approach may vary from what you have seen previously.

3 Important Oral Health Warning Signs

Dealing with an unexpected emergency is no fun, especially if it involves a costly repair or it disrupts your plans. Thankfully, many of the things we use on a daily basis, our cars for example, often give us warnings or have indicator lights to notify us of a pending problem we should have checked out before it becomes a significant and expensive issue. Our mouths work in much the same way. We often have patients who are surprised when they experience a dental emergency, but then realize their mouth has been giving them warning signs for quite some time. Interested in learning more about the warning signs your mouth might be telling you? Read on to learn more.

Importance Of A Proper Bite

When we have patients who visit our office and are interested in straightening their teeth, most patients are only concerned about the appearance of their teeth. They want to smile and show off beautiful, straight teeth. However, when we examine patients who are considering orthodontic care, we have a different concern — their bite. In fact, we often have patients who are suffering from a different problem and are surprised to learn they have an incorrect bite and it is leading to their oral health issues. Your bite is the way your upper and lower teeth fit together when you have your mouth closed as well as when you are chewing your food.
