It is always nice to come into the office and be acknowledged. Everyone knows my name and is familiar with me and says hello when I arrive. I never hate going to the dentist Even though it is a 30 minute drive now to get to the office (because I have a new job) it doesn’t even matter because I couldn’t be happier with my dentist and her ENTIRE staff.
Dr. Blazer and her staff were very professional during my visit a weeks ago. I had some acute discomfort and Dr. Blazer examined me and recommended a course of treatment. Within a week i was feeling much better. Dr. Blazer even called me a day after my exam to be certain I was doing Ok. I appreciate all Dr. Blazer and her staff did for me.
After dreading & waiting for months to go to the dentist, I was thoroughly impressed and glad that I chose Dr. Blazer! My husband said it was the first time he’s every seen me smiling as I walked out of the dentist. Amy (Hygenist) eased my concerns and worries, and Dr Blazer was equally wonderful! Thankful to have found this group!!!! Highly recommend.
As always I had a great experience at Dr. Blazer's office. It is weird to say that I enjoyed a visit to the dentist's office, but I did. Excellent and friendly staff as always and I was pleased to work with Flora for the first time. She was professional and funny.
I always look forward to my visit! Now, how many people can say that about going to the dentist? Everyone is so friendly, know you by first name, and they maintain an incredible professionalism. Whether it is a cleaning or a crown, I always feel I am in the best hands! I would recommend in a heartbeat, and have!
Did you know that we can avoid serious health problems by paying attention to our dental health? This does not only include teeth and gums - it affects the way we eat, speak, and smile, and our overall health.
Your mouth is the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Brushing, flossing, and mouthwash keeps bacteria in check. However, an overgrowth can cause multiple health issues if spread through your bloodstream, such as:
Cardiovascular disease: clogged arteries, stroke
Osteoporosis: brittle, weak bones
Pregnancy: premature birth, low birth weight
Diabetes: gum disease
Prevention of Tooth Decay and Gum Disease
Bacteria in your mouth can lead to decayed teeth, infections, and gum disease. Plaque buildup can destroy your teeth if not regularly removed. Periodontitis is a serious gum disease that lowers the immune system's ability to fight off infection. Brush your teeth with a fluoridated toothpaste, floss, limit sugar intake, replace your toothbrush every 3 months, and visit your dentist for regular cleanings. Cavities, enamel erosion, teeth grinding, and gingivitis should be promptly taken care of.
Missing, decayed, broken or chipped teeth may affect your appearance or speech, or cause low self-esteem. Dingy, stained teeth can be whitened by toothpastes or rinses, home kits, or professional whitening. Caps, veneers, and implants can be costly, but prevent further damage to a tooth. Tongue or lip piercings can become infected.
Our teeth, mouth, and tongue help us chew and swallow food. Sugar, soft drinks, citrus fruits, and sticky foods that cling to the teeth promote tooth decay, while foods such as hard cheeses and foods that contain calcium, sugar free gum, and artificial sweeteners protect the teeth.
Starting proper dental hygiene early, regular dental checkups, proper nutrition, and home care will help keep a healthy smile and could even extend your life!
