Sleep is essential for the maintenance of good physical and mental health. Whether you are experiencing poor sleep patterns due to stress or serious health problems, lack of sleep and sleep disorders are continuously becoming common in the United States. According to a recent study, more than 75% of Americans between the ages of 20 […]
You are rushing from meeting to meeting and realized you missed lunch, so you grab a bag of almonds to tie you over until after the meeting. While biting down you hear a crack, oops and then the pain. Now you have a dental dilemma, what do you do? During the week, it’s easy you […]
Happy Summer! It is a time of transition and many families are “on the move”. It is estimated more than forty-million Americans will move during the summer each year. In addition to the school year ending, new job opportunities are beginning and fresh starts for many mid-way through the year. Once new DC residents have […]
You wake up suddenly at 2:30 in the morning. Your chest is sore and you roll over, hoping to get back to sleep and trying your best to not wake up your spouse. A few hours later, you are driving the Washington, D.C. beltway, coffee in hand, and you can barely stay awake. Once you get to […]
Many of us know that poor dental health can affect us in many ways such as diabetes, oral health and in some cases infertility and cancer. When your teeth are poorly cared for, they can trigger other health related issues. (I hope to cover those health issues in future blogs.) Many people, though, don’t know […]
Let’s face it: Our teeth don’t always look good. And, no matter how we may try to hide them, they can still be seen and can be a great source of embarrassment. Damaged teeth can even impede career opportunities and our social life. It’s just not good to have noticeably bad teeth.
A lot of people have told me stories of their one “bad” tooth. It was their first cavity which had a small filing then a larger filling. The tooth then needed a crown, then a root canal and then a second crown. This of course happened over many, many years until they reached a point […]
Your October wedding is all planned. Dress and venue are picked out. Hair appointment set. Caterer and menu chosen. Photographer signed up. Officiant booked. Invitations sent. You’re all done now, right? Well, maybe not. What about your teeth? Yes, your teeth! It’s okay if you didn’t think about that. Too often, a bride forgets one […]
Anyone born in 1982 or after is considered a “millennial”. There are 76 million in that age group in the United States. They are influential leaders in business, government and the non-profit arena. They also control billions of dollars and are the target for many advertising campaigns. Millennials are data driven so we are going […]
“Braces? You want me to wear braces at my age?” That is a common response when dental patients hear about Invisalign. It can be a bit unnerving having to wear something in your mouth especially after your teens and tweens. Many adults hesitate to “straighten up” after adulthood. Also, as we age our teeth begin […]
Hey guys! Listen up! There are obvious differences between men and women. But what you may not realize is these differences extend into the world of dentistry and oral health as well. According to a survey by the American Dental Association (ADA), men are less likely to take care of their dental health than women. […]
It’s almost Mother’s Day, the one day on the calendar when moms are pampered and taken care of, but what happens the rest of the year?
