A 42 year old male patient, let’s call him “Bob”, presented to the office last month.  Bob’s main complaint was he was afraid to kiss his wife because of his bad breath.  “Our sex life is suffering because of it and my kids have been avoiding me.”

Root Canal vs Implant Treatment?  Of course no one looks forward to a Root Canal, but should a tooth be extracted and an implant placed?  Each situation is different and time must be taken to fully evaluate each individual's case.  This past week, there were no options for one of my patients and her front tooth required extraction and immediate implant placement.  Other times, when the tooth is less damaged, it is best to perform root canal treatment.  http://www.hudsonvalleydentalimplants.com/2015/root-canal-vs-implant-treatment/

Halitosis or Bad Breath affects more than 80 million people in the US.  Caused by decaying debris, bacteria and poor oral hygiene.  Many contributing factors also exist.  Saliva also plays a major role.  Please visit our site to learn more about causes and how to control bad breath.

Can a sinus infection cause a toothache?
This past week at my office, a patient presented complaining of a toothache.  After careful examination, testing and X-ray, no evidence of a tooth problem existed.  With further questioning, it became obvious the patient  was experiencing a sinus infection. 
This same phenomenon probably occurs every other month at my office and can be easily explained.  The maxillary sinus is located inside each cheekbone.  It is an air-filled cavity extending down and around the maxillary molars.  When the sinus becomes infected, mucus and fluid fills the sinus and creates pressure on the teeth, hence, tooth pain.  The signs and symptoms of sinus and tooth problems vary amongst individuals and can often mirror each other.  This can create a diagnostic challenge for dentists.

Cold sores need to be treated at the prodromal stage.  This stage is just before blisters are noted and when tingling, itching, and burning around the lips is felt.
OTC Treatment
Cold compress and lubrication are older remedies and can be effective.  Abreva is the only FDA-approved over the counter remedy.
In Office Treatment
Low-level laser treatment
Prescription
Denavir (penciclovir) is an anti-viral prescription medicine.  This is my favorite treatment for patients who have recurrent episodes of cold sores.  It is best to keep this prescription handy and apply when symptoms are first noted and before the outbreak is more severe.

How do we treat canker sores (apthous ulcers)?
Treatment is pallative, for comfort only.  These lesions will disappear completely in 7-10 days with or without treatment.  The problem is these ulcerated lesions can be quite painful!
Many treatments are available, but my preferred treatment is low-level laser treatment.  This usually provides immediate pain relief.

Do you have gum disease?  Did you know gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss and has also been associated with heart disease, low birth weight, diabetes and other health problems?  According to the Center for Disease Control, 50% of US adults have some form of gum disease (periodontal disease).  Major risk factors for periodontal disease include a generic predisposition, smoking, lack of routine home care, diet, certain systemic diseases, and various medications.

Going to see the dentist used to always make me cringe. But with dr. Carpenter and his team I actually look forward 2 going because no matter what the reason is for seeing him I know I will be well taken care of. Professional and personable each and every one of them. They're like family! And I'm thankful every time I need a dentist that dr.C and his team were highly recommended to me.

Dr. Carpenter has been my dentist for years. I'd never dream of going anywhere else. He has so much knowledge to offer patients. Dr. Carpenter spends his time explaining all treatment options to you and answers all questions. There's never been a problem with his work. I totally trust his judgment; his staff is wonderful. Very clean office, too. Do yourself a favor and call Carpenter today.

Several years ago, my partner and I found Dr. Carpenter via a close friend and one of his satisfied long term patients. Since then, we too have joined the ranks of satisfied patients. Meticulous care has been been taken on all our dental related and related health issues. Existing serious problems have been addressed with minimal pain to the mouth as well as the credit card. Years of award winning experience, modern methods, and old fashion pride in his workmanship, makes Dr. Carpenter the dentist we want to keep, Hey Doc any chance of working out of Goshen?

From my very first phone call I could tell this office was different and my respect and appreciation has only grown since! You'll step back in time from the cozy front area where you're greeted by name, and the warm caring assistants who never leave you feeling lost or rushed, to Dr Carpenter himself whose concern for his patients and passion for his work are nothing short of inspiring. There is nothing old fashioned about the state of the art tools however and the doctor will tell you all about them with the enthusiasm of a kid at Christmas! If only all my doctors offices could be like this!
