Happy New Year to everyone. We at Nusmiles hope all familes have had a peaceful start to 2014. Personally, this is the worst winter that I've ever lived through and I know I can't be the only one not enjoying waking up to subfreezing temperatures. I have even considered becoming a nomad, chasing warmer climates or maybe just getting rich and hibernating for 6 months of the year. If old man winter and his fluffy precipitation has been getting to you too then consider coming in for a dental check up. I know having a clean, healthy mouth always cheers me up.

All the best for the new year from myself, your dental hygienist and the rest of our lovely staff at Nusmiles. As we move into 2013, most of us are probably rehabilitating our pockets and bodies from the festivities of the past holiday season. So, with that in mind, new year resolutions including cultivating a healthy mind and body should include having a beautiful and healthy smile. Feel free to call or stop in for a check up appointment where you can get more pointers than received on Dr. Oz for how to achieve and maintain that beautiful and healthy smile. Ciao for now :)

When you make that recommended six month 'cleaning' appointment, are you having just a cleaning ? Often times, I encounter new patients or those who have not been to the office for some time and they state their desires. These often include, " I just came for a cleaning, that's it". When we see patients at these check up appointments, aside from cleaning your teeth, x rays are taken ( 1 x year) in order to diagnose any pathology that cannot be detected by looking in the mouth and the doctor examines these x rays and the teeth for any possible restorative needs that can save individuals from future dental pain or more extensive treatment. For example, when decay is detected in a mouth that is examined at least twice per year, it most likely can be resolved with filling material. If left untreated, decay will become more extensive and require treatment beyond a simple filling. Now we talk about the dreaded root canals, which many folks opt out of and go for what sounds like being less invasive and request an extraction. True, we can replace every tooth in your mouth but it is always easier to work with what we were given naturally. The next time you visit your dental office and think of the visit as for "just a cleaning", consider the benefits of the entire check up and the future discomfort you can save yourself.
