Do you suffer from #TMJ Pain or #Migraine #Headaches?

You may not have heard about Botox therapy for head, neck, and/or facial pain. The same effect of Botox that reduces the appearance of wrinkles (relaxing muscles) is used to reduce the intensity of muscle contractions. Intense and/or prolonged muscle contractions of our muscles used for chewing can cause pain and damage to our teeth. Pain can be in the contracted muscle or can be referred to a distant site. Severe clenching and grinding of the teeth can cause the teeth to chip, break, or even need root canal treatments. Schedule your complimentary consultation appointment to learn more or ask us next time you come in. Click for more Info

#DentalInsuranceBenefits - As crazy as it may sound, we are almost at the end of the year. That means it is time to start thinking about your remaining insurance benefits. Remember dental benefits start over each year. If you don't use 'em you lose 'em, Don't wait till the last minute for dental treatment.

Since you pay for those benefits each year and they do not carry over from year-to-year, we encourage you to take full advantage of any and all money that may still be available to you.

A New Breakthrough in Oral Cancer Early Diagnosis  - by Dr. Ushma Patel, DMD

Did you know that #OralCancer Kills One American every Hour? Within 15 years Cancer will become the #1 Killer surpassing Heart Disease.

Cancer of the mouth kills thousands every year, and it leaves thousands more with a lifetime of hideous facial deformity as a result of surgical treatment.

You don’t have to be a smoker or ‘chew’ tobacco to develop oral cancer.  Anyone can get it. Oral cancer kills more people each year than either skin cancer (malignant melanoma) or cervical cancer. Of the 20 most common cancers, oral and laryngeal cancers are the only two that have not had a significant improvement in survival rate over the last 20 years. And oral cancer has not had improvement in the death rate in the last 40 years! The average five-year survival rate for oral cancer is still only about 50%.

Oral cancer usually starts out as a red, or more often, a white patch somewhere in the mouth. Although a large number of people have similar appearing white or red abnormalities in their mouth, the vast majority of these lesions are benign.  However, up to 6% of these innocuous, harmless looking lesions have been found to be pre-cancerous or even cancerous.

In the past, because millions of people have had innocuous looking lesions in their mouths, it has not been practical to perform a surgical biopsy on most of them. As a result, many pre-cancerous or early stage cancers remained undetected. Deforming surgeries could have been prevented by early detection!

But things have recently changed for the better. Dentists now have the ability to easily test each and every one of these lesions just to be sure they are harmless. 

Regular dental exams / checkups in our office now include this oral cancer screening. We now use OralID for Oral screening, for more info check out the videos at https://www.youtube.com/user/TheOralID. "A two minute exam could save your life!"

Introducing the Inman Aligner

Until now, the alternatives to straighten front teeth involved either long and expensive orthodontic treatments or destructive and expensive restorative treatments such as veneers or crowns. Even ultrathin veneers involve heavy reduction of natural teeth when used to align crowding or protrusion. 

But with the arrival of the Inman Aligner, all that has changed.

The Inman Aligner is a cost-effective removable orthodontic appliance that moves teeth in a fraction of the time of other systems. It aligns crowded or protruding anterior teeth with two opposing spring loaded aligner bars. This provides gentle but continuous pressure over a large range of movement. Surprisingly, this gentle pressure is the quickest way to move teeth but it also makes treatment very safe and kind to teeth.

People love the speed of treatment and it’s changing the face of dentistry as we know it. The average treatment time is only 4-16 weeks and now with concerns over the economy it’s a more justifiable expense.

Only certified Inman Aligner dentists can provide them. Dr. Ushma Patel of Center for Advanced Dentistry has achieved this certification and provides Inman Aligners, here in Johns Creek, Suwanee, Duluth, Alpharetta and Cumming, GA. 

Dr Ushma Patel; “The Inman Aligner is the greatest innovation in dentistry of recent years. It’s fast, affordable and kind to teeth. It really is the best way to straighten crowded front teeth.”

Thank you. The 2 Snow/Ice Storms this year definitely challenged us with all the rescheduling of patient's dental appointments. So thank you to all for being understanding. We did our best to get the people that needed our services or those with an emergency in as soon as we could.
