Sandy Springs Chamblee Dentists Treating Patients – Healing People

Chamblee Sandys Springs Dentist near meAs oral physicians, dentists save lives.  Americans are aware of the importance of eating right, taking dietary supplements, and implementing vigorous exercise regimens to maintain their health and delay aging.  However, most people are still unaware of the amazing health benefits of healthy teeth and the detrimental impact of poor oral hygiene.  Generally, an infection anywhere in the body can be serious, if not deadly…and is usually treated immediately.  Yet, gum disease is often neglected for years and years because the infection is out of sight and usually persists with no pain.

A recent article in the Journal of the American Dental Association discussed dental implications of “metabolic syndrome”- a combination of obesity, high cholesterol and triglycerides, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar. These people need to be exercising as well as eating a diet rich in fibrous fruits and vegetables. Studies have shown that maintaining the natural teeth are critically important for people with metabolic syndrome.

The reason is that as people progressively lose teeth, they will often alter their food selection. The fewer back teeth are present, the harder time they have eating a healthy diet. Instead, they tend to select foods that are softer and higher in saturated fat, trans-fatty acids, and cholesterol. Therefore they get less of the fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, carotene, folate, potassium, and vitamins C, E, and B6 that they need.

And once gum disease starts it does not usually reverse itself without specialized treatment. You are not “too old for good dental care” because the average 65 year old has 17.3 years of life remaining! How do you know if you have gum disease?  Buy maintaining regular daily oral habits and seeing your dentist.

Sandy Spring Chamblee Dentists – Healthy Body comes with a Healthy Mouth

Chamblee Sandy Springs Dentist near meYour eyes may be the window to your soul, but your mouth is the gateway to your body. It’s important to your global health.  We are oral physicians who know that ‘people who keep their teeth live an average of ten years longer than people who lose their teeth’ – Charles Mayo, MD.

So what kind of dialogue can we develop from this kind of knowledge and how are we going to interact with you?  Do we send it in a letter?  Or do we mention it face to face?

Heart Disease – Fatal heart disease was twice as common in those patients with periodontal infection.

Stroke – If your gums are infected, you triple your risk of having a stroke.

Diabetes – Studies show that treating periodontal disease may reduce a diabetic’s blood sugar levels.

Premature, Low Birthweight Babies – Woman with dental infections were 3 times more likely to have premature, low-birth weight babies than women with healthy teeth and gums.

Obesity and Weight Loss – Periodontal disease is our body’s most common chronic infection. Bacteria from gum disease may interfere with fat metabolism, leading to elevated LDL cholesterol and total health.

Osteoporosis – As dental bone density decreases, so does hip bone density.

Pneumonia and Respiratory Diseases – Pneumonia and lung abscesses can result from the same bacteria that cause periodontal disease. [1]

Cancer – “In January 2007, a Harvard University School of Public Health study uncovered a strong correlation of advanced gum disease in men to a 63% higher incidence of pancreatic cancer. [2]

These are serious consequences where your periodic oral exams can make a difference in your life.  Call now for your consult and oral exam.

J. Periodontal 1996 Oct;67(10 Suppl):1114-22. Relationships between periodontal disease and bacterial pneumonia. Scannapieco FA,Mylotte JM.

[2] Cancer risk increases when gum disease is present. Even the presence of moderate gum disease contributed to an overall 14% increased risk of cancer. These include lung, kidney and blood cancers in both smokers and non-smokers. Chronic advanced gum disease was the most frightening – with an additional fourfold increase in head and neck cancer for each millimeter of related bone loss around teeth.”

 

Sandy Springs | Chamblee ? Corporate Dentistry & Over-treatment

Sandy Springs | Chamblee Dentist near meAllegations of over-treatment take many different forms, but the majority of such allegations imply an improper motive on the part of in-network dental practices.  Suggesting or providing treatment which is not necessary, often not justifiable, appears to be linked to corporate dental practices that desire to generate additional fees.  Often we have someone leave our practice due to the failure of their dental insurance, only to come back when the corporate, in-network practice is over prescribing treatment.

Over-prescribing of dental treatment can of course occur in any clinical setting, but when it takes place in ‘private’ corporate practices it often becomes difficult to separate the sometimes subjective clinical judgments as to what is and is not necessary, from the financial motives to generate target income. This introduces an uncomfortable dimension to any clinical considerations.

There is considerable anecdotal evidence to suggest that in-network practices tend to recommend or provide more treatment when seeing a new patient for the first time, than they might do if they encountered an existing patient, with exactly the same oral condition under their care for many years.  The new in-network patient appears to present many ‘golden’ opportunities for the first visit.

Unfortunately, in the oral healthcare setting post 2008 recession, this imbalance has fundamental consequences for the patient’s ability to decide for themselves whether or not to proceed with any particular treatment that has been suggested to them.  It’s like taking your car to the auto mechanic.  The patient lacks the expertise to discern whether he/she is being taken for a ride.

In our Sandy Springs and Chamblee offices, we pride ourselves of defining treatment that’s in the best interest despite the pressures on the current insurance system.  And we always present alternatives that might be available.  We been around a long time and has more than a 1000 five star reviews.  Call us for treatment in your best interest.

Chamblee Sandy Springs Dental Cleanings

Chamblee Sandy Springs dentist near meRegular dental cleanings are one of your most important steps you can take to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. While good habits at home are important — including regular brushing and flossing, a deep dental cleaning from our Right Smile Center team offers extra protection from cavities, gingivitis and tartar buildup.

Even the best dental hygiene routine doesn’t guarantee your mouth and teeth are completely free of germs and tartar. Home toothbrushes, floss and dental rinse can only do so much. In fact, being too aggressive in your home regimen can do more harm than good. When it comes to a safe, pain-free dental cleaning, patients come to our Chamblee and Sandy Springs offices to keep their teeth clean and healthy.

During a typical dental cleaning, your teeth are scaled to remove any plaque on the tooth and under the gum line that regular brushing and flossing can’t reach. The process can be done using sonic and ultrasonic scales, replacing the hand scales that made teeth cleaning painful in the past.

At the conclusion of your visit a dental polishing is done along the gum line to prevent future plaque buildup. After the cleaning, you will wrap it up with rinses of water or a dental rinse and an oral cancer screening by one of our trained dentists.

Following your visit, you’ll receive home care instructions on how to protect your teeth and gums from gum disease and infection. Good oral hygiene, regular dental checkups and healthy eating habits should prevent future gingivitis and periodontitis, making every regular dental cleaning less painful and less invasive.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.  If your looking for quality care, please give us a call for your complimentary consult.
