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.

The Top 7 Risk Factors for Oral Cancer (Part 1 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.

Regular visits to your dentist can help you detect such cancers early, and changing a few potentially harmful habits may help reduce your chances of developing them. Read on to find out the top risk factors.











Gender 
Men are twice more likely to get oral cancer. The American Cancer Society attributes this to higher rates of alcohol and tobacco use by men, but says more men of a younger age are being diagnosed with HPV-related forms of oral cancer.
 










Age 
Most people who are diagnosed with oral cancer are 55 or older, according to the American Cancer Society. HPV-related oral cancers, however, are often diagnosed in people who are younger.

Oral Cancer Screening

Oral Cancer – Early Detection Can be a Lifesaver

When oral cancer is found early, treatment is quicker, easier, less invasive and 90% successful. With approximately 29,000 cases of oral cancer diagnosed last year, a fast and painless oral cancer screening is better than a good idea. That’s why we conduct a visual screening for oral cancer at every six-month checkup and cleaning. If the hygienist or doctor sees anything that gives them cause for concern, they’ll refer you to an oral surgeon. This screening could literally save your life!

Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

What’s So Bad About Losing a Tooth?

While you might believe that decay and accident or trauma are the most common reasons people lose a tooth, the true destroyer is gum disease. So is it a big issue to lose a tooth? Actually, losing even a single tooth can cause your other teeth to change position, which is not good. Missing teeth affects your ability to chew and to absorb nutrients from your food. Because it’s harder to chew with missing teeth, you may begin favoring softer foods with more carbohydrates, which can cause you to gain weight. Other bad things can happen, including your speech being altered. The gaps in your teeth may cause your face to change shape, creating a “sunken” appearance that can make you look much older than you really are.

Designed to match your remaining teeth, dental implants can replace one tooth or multiples and are the best way to treat a missing tooth (or missing teeth). They look so natural that at first glance even a dentist will have trouble telling the difference.

Nutrition: What You Eat Affects Your Teeth

Below is an excerpt from an article found on MouthHealthy.org

Your mouth, teeth, and gums are more than just tools for eating. They’re essential for chewing and swallowing-the first steps in the digestion process. Your mouth is your body’s initial point of contact with the nutrients you consume. So what you put in your mouth impacts not only your general health but also that of your teeth and gums. In fact, if your nutrition is poor, the first signs often show up in your mouth. Here are a few helpful things to know about how what you eat can impact your dental health.

Diet and Tooth Decay
The foods you eat and the beverages you drink can have a direct influence on the incidence and progression of tooth decay, depending upon: 

  • The form of the food-whether it’s liquid, solid, sticky or slow to dissolve makes a difference. 
  • How often you eat sugary foods and beverages and how often you eat or drink acidic foods and beverages. 
  • The nutritional makeup of the food. 
  • The combination of the foods you eat and the order in which you eat them. 
  • Medical conditions you may have, such as gastrointestinal reflux and eating disorders, which can increase risk of cavities and weaken teeth.

How Snacking Affects Your Dental Health
For dental health, it’s recommended that people limit eating and drinking between meals. Of course, sometimes eating between meals must happen. Unfortunately, most people choose foods like sweets and chips for snacks; foods that harm teeth by promoting tooth decay. If you do snack, make it a nutritious choice-such as cheese, yogurt, fruits, vegetables or nuts-for your overall health and the health of your teeth. Did you know that certain foods can put you at risk for cavities and other dental health problems? Here are some MouthHealthy tips.

5 Reasons Your Smile Is Stronger Than You Think

Below is an excerpt from an article found on MouthHealthy.org

The right smile can leave you laughing, fill you with joy or make you melt with emotion. But, ultimately, the best smile is one that is healthy and strong. Here are some of the “tooth truths” about how tough your teeth really are ñ and how to keep them that way.

1. Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the body.
The shiny, white enamel that covers your teeth is even stronger than bone. This resilient surface is 96 percent mineral, the highest percentage of any tissue in your body - making it durable and damage-resistant.    

2. Your bite is powerful!
Did you know your teeth can exert an average of 200 pounds of pressure when you bite down? That’s probably what tempts us to use our teeth as tools from time to time ñ but as your dentist will remind you, that’s one of the worst habits when it comes to preserving healthy teeth.    

To read the entire article visit MouthHealthy.org.

The remainder of the article details the following:

  • Teeth can last for hundreds of years
  • Strong as they are, teeth can't heal on their own
  • Healthy teeth have the power to resist decay, but they need our help

Full Mouth Dental Rehabilitation for TMJ/TMD Treatment

TMJ/TMD – Proper Bite Alignment Treatment Helps You Say ‘Goodbye’ to Headaches and Jaw Pain!


Are you aware that the aches and pains that plague your neck and shoulders may be the result of a misaligned dental occlusion (i.e. your bite)? Excess tension in your jaw muscles may also cause frequent headaches and aching or popping jaws. If your teeth have been ground down over the years or lost due to accident or dental disease, your jaw is not capable of settling into a naturally relaxed position. It is time to recover your dental occlusion and allow your jaw to regain the alignment that nature intended, so you can stop living with the pain.

At Jockey Hollow Dentistry, we offer a highly technical procedure, known as full-mouth rehabilitation. If you have been coexisting with the pain and discomfort described above, we invite you to discover the benefits this procedure may bring to your quality of life.

Is Sparkling Water Bad for My Teeth?

Below is an excerpt from an article found on MouthHealthy.org

Is the satisfying fizz of your favorite sparkling water putting you at risk for tooth decay? Because any drink with carbonation-including sparkling water-has a higher acid level, some reports have questioned whether sipping sparkling water will weaken your tooth enamel (the hard outer shell of your teeth where cavities first form).

So, Is Sparkling Water Affecting My Teeth?
According to available research, sparkling water is generally fine for your teeth-and here's why. In a study using teeth that were removed as a part of treatment and donated for research, researchers tested to see whether sparkling water would attack tooth enamel more aggressively than regular lab water. The result? The two forms of water were about the same in their effects on tooth enamel. This finding suggests that, even though sparkling water is slightly more acidic than ordinary water, it's all just water to your teeth. 

Tips for Enjoying Sparkling Water-and Protecting Your Teeth

  • Sparkling water is far better for your teeth than sugary drinks. In addition, be sure to drink plenty of regular, fluoridated water, too-it’s the best beverage for your teeth. Water with fluoride naturally helps fight cavities, washes away the leftover food cavity-causing bacteria feast on and keeps your mouth from becoming dry (which can put you at a higher risk of cavities). 
  • Be mindful of what’s in your sparkling water. Citrus-flavored waters often have higher acid levels that does increase the risk of damage to your enamel. Plan to enjoy these in one sitting or with meals. This way, you aren’t sipping it throughout the day and exposing your teeth over and over again to the slightly higher level of acid it contains.
  • Sparkling water brands with added sugar can no longer be considered just sparkling water. They are a sugar-sweetened beverage, which can contribute to your risk of developing cavities. So remember-sparkling or not-plain water is always the best choice.

Dental Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea

Our Alternative to CPAP

The conventional treatment for sleep apnea is the CPAP device, and it continues to be the gold standard for moderate to severe sleep apnea. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Air Pressure. A patient is fitted with a machine that pumps a constant stream of air into the patient’s nose or mouth via a mask while they sleep. However, many people find this uncomfortable and they discontinue the treatment.

If you have sleep apnea and can’t tolerate or are frustrated with your CPAP, we can provide you with an alternative treatment. We can custom fit you with an oral appliance such as the Respire Blue Series™ or TAP™ (Thornton Adjustable Positioner). These are small acrylic devices that fit over your upper and lower teeth similar to the way an orthodontic retainer or mouth guard does. They gently shift your tongue and jaw to reposition your airway and allow more air flow to your lungs as you sleep. They are easy to insert and remove, a snap to clean, and are convenient for travel. These devices are not only extremely comfortable, but they have an excellent success rate for sleep apnea and snoring.

Tips for keeping a beautiful smile!

Keeping your teeth clean, smooth and beautiful...
Proper oral hygiene is your key to a healthy, beautiful smile. Here are our and the American Dental Association's recommendations for at home care:

  • Brush 2-3 times every day with a flouride toothpaste (it doesn't matter which brand)
  • Floss once a day
  • Eat a healthy diet (fruits, vegetables, etc)
  • Limit consumption of sugary foodsand beverages. Soda drinks can destroy teeth faster than almost anything else
  • Eliminate or at least limit use of alchol, chewing tabacco, and cigarettes

We also recommend using an electric high-speed toothbrush in conjuction with a  waterpik for your daily at-home oral care.

And don't forget six-month professional cleanings and checkups. The American Dnetal Association recommends checkups every six months for those ages four and older.

Professional cleanings by qualified hygienists will remove bacteria and plaque, which can cause serious dental problems if not kept in check.

Having a plaque attack?

Plaque is that soft, sticky stuff that builds up on your teeth over time. It contains legions of bacteria. Left untreated it will eventually lead to gum disease, bad breath and tooth loss.

Frequent brushing and flossing are required to keep plaque at bay. But it's virtually impossible to remove all plaque without the skills of your professional dental hygienist. In other words, you're going to need some help.

Call our office today to schedule your next routine teeth cleaning to receive help with your plaque removal!

Children's Dental Care

Choosing Your Child’s Dentist is an Important Decision

Teaching good habits early on (in an environment that’s relaxed and fun) is critical for laying the foundation that promotes a lifetime of strong oral health. From a young age, children’s teeth are very susceptible to cavities due to many factors:

Children lack the necessary coordination to brush well on their own. Because of this, it is vital that parents assist in their child’s daily dental care. This encourages both thorough cleaning and the development of proper dental habits. Little kids tend to eat frequently throughout the day (grazing). This results in an extended exposure to food acids (every time you eat you make acid), which may cause more cavities.

Lack of cleaning means teeth are more at risk for potential decay because of increased acid production that hastens the development of cavities. The good news is that identifying poor dietary and hygiene habits, along with applying a fluoride varnish to the mineralizing teeth, can drastically reduce the odds of your child developing a cavity.

Routine Dental Care

The Importance of Hygiene Visits

One of the most critical reasons to visit your dentist routinely is to have your teeth cleaned by a professional hygienist. Even when you take painstaking care to properly brush and floss, some bit of soft and sticky plaque is left behind. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar, which is even more difficult to remove with your average toothbrush and floss. Tartar accumulates below the gumline as well as on the surface of your teeth. Unremoved plaque and tartar increase your risk of more serious infections developing. Recent research shows a definite link between untreated gum disease and other serious conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Having your teeth cleaned regularly is one of the easiest things you can do to stay healthy!

Your Dental Hygienist!

Normally we think of a teeth cleaning as just that. Our tongues love the smooth and clean feeling we get after visiting our dental hygienist.

But there's another huge benefit to regular teeth cleaning. Hygienists spend time in your mouth. That give them the opportunity to spot suspicious tissue or other possible signs of oral cancer.

Oral cancer has a fantastically high cure rate - but only if it's detected early.

Another reason to love your dental hygienist!
