Understanding the wide-ranging benefits of non-invasive laser technology

If you have failing, missing teeth or wear traditional dentures, you may experience everyday situations that are uncomfortable or embarrassing. The good news: dental implants are tooth replacement solutions that make it possible to live a healthy, confident life. Using the latest technology, such as virtual impressions, a digital CT scan, and 3D printing, I, along with my team, can provide a full treatment plan, from a single implant to a full mouth restoration, depending on your priorities. Our personalized approach also considers managing time restraints, alleviating anxiety, and offering ways to help you finance your dental treatment. Realizing the stress of a dental visit, we do our best to make it enjoyable and relaxing. Our stress-reducing amenities include TVs in every room, noise-cancelling headphones, heated hand warmers with essential oil infused lotions, hot towels, and soothing lip balm.

Reducing the risk of a heart attack

Winter has its pleasures — crisp air, skiing, and snow-covered landscapes. But the cold weather does pose risks. Research has shown an increased danger of heart attacks in winter because cold air narrows blood vessels, reducing the oxygen supply to the heart, Nuvance Health cardiologist Dr. James Lyons notes.

Consider these tips to reduce your risk of a heart attack this season:

  • Wear layers, particularly hats, gloves, and socks
  • Stick to a heart-healthy diet
  • Exercise
  • Hydrate
  • Take breaks from shoveling and outdoor activities
  • Avoid excessive alcohol

Brightening a smile with dental bleaching 

Dental bleaching can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of bleaching treatments, bleaching is nearly always worth a solid try.
