Once your child's first tooth starts to erupt, it is time to begin a regular dental hygiene routine. As your child grows, he or she will be able to begin learning how to do brushing and flossing with some assistance from you. Since many kids resist brushing their teeth or lack the fine motor skills needed to do a good job, it is important for you to supervise them and provide continuing assistance with getting their baby teeth clean. Do It Early Instead of waiting until your child has all of his or her baby teeth, start brushing early. You can use a small finger brush when your child has just a few teeth. Once your child has more than four teeth, it is time to upgrade to a toothbrush for toddlers, and some infant to toddler toothpaste as recommended by your dentist in Corning, NY. Starting a good dental hygiene habit early in life helps to integrate teeth cleaning as a normal part of a morning and bedtime routine.

Periodontal diseases are one of the leading causes of premature tooth loss, and they are more prevalent in men than women. The rate increases after the age of 65. The presence of the condition is diagnosed by a dentist in Corning, NY or elsewhere during an initial examination. All gingival findings are recorded, and they may include clinical attachment levels, probing depths, bone levels, and tooth mobility. In addition, the spacing or relationship among one’s teeth is noted. All of the findings are taken into consideration during the treatment planning phase of the therapy. Every evaluation of the gums helps to identify periodontal disease and implement comprehensive treatment to halt the progress of the disorder. Early diagnosis and detection of periodontal disease in Corning, NY dental offices are crucial to the prevention of this condition, because if left untreated, it leads to tooth loss and costly dental treatments.

Dr. Maria E. Marzo, a renowned dental practitioner in Corning, NY who offers cosmetic treatments, has been named a Preferred Provider of Invisalign in 2015. Invisalign is a modern, custom-made series of aligners. Unlike traditional braces, these aligner trays are smoother, more comfortable, virtually invisible, and do a better job of fixing teeth alignment, making them the favored treatment among cosmetic dentists and patients alike. Many dentists provide Invisalign treatments, but only a few are directly trained by Invisalign to perform such procedures. For patients to receive the right type of care, they must choose the right doctor. Although Invisalign is a highly successful treatment, the outcome still largely depends on the skills of the dentist.

Getting dental implants isn’t something you can accomplish in a single appointment. You generally need to meet with your dentist several times, and the entire process could take a few months. Implants are a good option for those who have lost one or more teeth. They are considered the best teeth replacements because of their permanent nature, which eliminates much of the discomfort associated with dentures and similar devices. Likewise, dental implants help preserve the health of gums and the remaining natural teeth. Maria E. Marzo, DDS works alongside Oral and Implant Surgery in the Dental Implant Process

Cosmetic dentistry is a field that is growing in popularity, as more and more people are realizing how important their smiles are to achieving success in life and their career. Modern society places a high value on the way a person looks, and a healthy smile and straight teeth make a person appear younger, healthier, and more attractive. Braces One of the primary reasons why people visit a dentist is to get braces. In times past, the majority of those who used braces were teenagers. Now, it is not uncommon to see adults wearing braces. Braces are not designed to simply correct crooked or crowded teeth. They can also be used by a cosmetic dentist to help patients improve their bite or to correct an irregular jaw position.

All new parents are concerned about the health of their children. Most parents will take their infant to visit the doctor multiple times before the baby’s first birthday. Parents, however, have some confusion as to when they should first take their child to see a dentist. By the First Birthday The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that parents bring their child in for his/her first dental visit by the first birthday. This is especially true for children who are at risk of childhood cavities. For most parents, the thought of bringing their child to the dentist so early is surprising. There have been many studies done around the nation, though, that show that preschoolers are getting cavities. In fact, according to statistics, 25 percent of children in the United States have one cavity by the time they reach four years of age. Some have cavities as early as two years of age.

Statistics from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons show that nearly 70 percent of adults aged 35 to 44 can lose a tooth due to several factors. Years ago, when people lost their teeth to accidents or diseases, the only option they had to restore their smile is to get a set of “false teeth” or removable dentures. Most denture wearers, however, complain about how uncomfortable it is to wear them and how difficult it is to keep them secure. Now, people have no need to worry about experiencing these things should they lose a tooth or two. Medical advancements paved the way for more permanent solutions for tooth loss, specifically dental implants. These have been a popular choice for those who are suffering from a lost or a damaged tooth, and are definitely the better option compared to dentures.

On one end, regular dental care allows for the detection of potential oral cancers which can be cured if caught at its earliest stage. On the other hand, cavities and broken fillings can be prevented, which, if left unnoticed, could result in tooth extraction and, possibly, even gum surgery.

Contrary to popular belief, periodontal or gum disease is NOT something that only happens to grown-ups and the elderly; children and adolescents are susceptible, too. Broadly speaking, gum diseases refer to a set of ailments resulting from an inflammation of the tissues and bone that support the teeth. If left untreated, it could result in rotting teeth and possible underlying complications. Usually, periodontal disease is caused by a buildup of plaque, a sticky layer of bacteria that naturally forms on teeth and gums. The most common types that affect children are chronic gingivitis and aggressive periodontitis.
