Dental Implants

Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect Smile

Dental implants offer a great solution for replacing lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they can be visible, to the back, where they provide chewing stability, implants can help you recreate an inviting and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which rest on top of your gums, dental implants are secured under your gum line. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes up through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can replace multiple lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t shift when they talk and don’t need to be removed at night. After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, Dr. Johnson or Dr. Fenichel will custom-create natural-looking restorations. Get the smile you deserve – permanently!

Dental Air Abrasion Treatments

Dentistry Without Drills or Needles?

Is it conceivable to go to the dentist and never experience the drill or the pinch of that awful needle? One of the most sensational advances in modern dentistry is called air abrasion. Instead of a traditional drill, this tool aims a stream of tiny particles and air at the area of decay and gently mists it away! Most patients need little or no anesthesia. The reverberation of the drill is gone – and so is most of the pain! For many procedures, it’s good-bye needles, good-bye drill!

The Top 7 Risk Factors for Oral Cancer (Part 3 of 3)

You know your dentist is looking for cavities during regular check-ups, but you may not realize your dentist can check for cancer at the same time. It’s estimated that approximately 51,540 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer and cancers of the throat, tonsils and back of the tongue in 2018.

Sunlight 
People who have jobs working outside are more prone to developing lip cancer and should use UV protection.











Diet 
Poor nutrition also may put you at risk for developing oral cancer. A diet low in fruits and vegetables may increase your chance of developing oral cancer, so add more color to your plate!

The Top 7 Risk Factors for Oral Cancer (Part 2 of 3)

You know your dentist is looking for cavities during regular check-ups, but you may not realize your dentist can check for cancer at the same time. It’s estimated that approximately 51,540 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer and cancers of the throat, tonsils and back of the tongue in 2018.

Tobacco 
Whether you smoke it or chew it, tobacco use increases your risk dramatically. Smoking can cause oral cancer, as well as cancer in other parts of the body. Pipe smokers are also at a higher risk for developing cancer in their lips. Smokeless tobacco, like chew, can lead to many issues in your mouth, the most serious being cancer of the cheeks, gums, and lips.











Alcohol 
According to the American Cancer Society, 7 of 10 oral cancer patients are heavy drinkers. Heavy drinking, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is an average of two drinks a day or more for men and an average of more than one drink a day for women. If you are a heavy drinker and a heavy smoker, your chances of developing oral cancer increase significantly.  












Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) 
The sexually transmitted disease is now associated with about 9,000 cases of head and neck cancer (specifically those occurring at the back of the tongue, in or around the tonsils) diagnosed each year in the United States, according to the CDC. People who are diagnosed with HPV-related head and neck cancer tend to be younger and nonsmokers. People with HPV-positive cancers have a lower risk of death or recurrence, even though these cancers are often diagnosed at a later stage because it develops in difficult-to-detect areas.
