When Your Toothache Screams “See a Dentist!”

Is there anything worse than a toothache? Soar, throbbing toothaches are not something you can always predict. Certainly, a toothache that’s keeping you up at night, interfering with your daily routine and generally making you unbearable to be around qualifies for an immediate trip to the dentist.

Too often people put off seeing their dentist until an emergency arises and a toothache definitely qualifies as an emergency.  Pain is pain but here are some other symptoms that qualify:

•  Swelling or redness in your mouth
•  Tooth pain or sensitivity, especially to hot or cold liquids or temperatures
•  An abscessed tooth

Unlike many dental providers that require weeks, even months for advanced appointments, we provide relief to you the same day you call. Contacting Advanced Dental Arts, day or night is the quickest way to ending your toothache and getting a good night’s rest.

If you call us after hours, no worries, our answering service will contact one of the on-call dental staff and you’ll get a prompt return call. That’s one of the many differences in Advanced Dental Care – we are always here for you.  And with seven convenient locations throughout the New York City area, we are never too far away. Let us hear from you – we can help you avoid painful toothaches altogether.

Trust and Confidence: Two Things You Want in Your Orthodontist

When it comes to selecting an orthodontist, you want to know you can trust the quality and integrity of the dentist. If you have complete confidence in your orthodontist’s expertise, the orthodontia experience will be rewarding and have quality, long-lasting results.

But how do you know what to look for to get this level of orthodontia care?

Since people of all ages may need an orthodontist at some point in their life, it’s important to look for a professional who treats patients of all ages. Another plus is an established practice that serves a community over many years. That means an orthodontist that other dentists know, trust and to whom they refer their own patients.

Look for an orthodontist with advanced technology skills. Certification and ongoing training in the latest techniques and procedures will assure you’re in the right hands.

Convenience is a time-saver for everyone so access to early morning or afternoon appointments that work with your school or work schedule are an added benefit. Access to an online website with an interactive patient portal gives you 24/7 convenience. Customized electronic appointment sent directly to you via e-mail or text message is a helpful advantage, too. If you’re fortunate enough to find an orthodontist that provides live answering service for emergency care, it will add an extra level of confidence.

If you need an orthodontist who is experienced in the treatment of craniofacial problems including cleft lip and palate, you can trust the expertise of a dental professional skilled at this level of competence.

And finally, last but by all means not least, look for an orthodontics practice that has a warm, approachable, and fun staff that will help you to feel at ease. In an environment where there is a family-friendly, comfortable waiting area with coffee bar, artwork, books, magazines, music, video games, toys and more, you and your family will never dread that trip to the dentist.

If it seems like a lot to expect from your orthodontist, think again. You’ll find all these things and more at Luba Richter Orthodontics.

Short on Time but Long on the Wish for Perfect Teeth?

Many people say that if it didn’t take so long for braces to work they would probably go for it.  Now there is a new technology that makes it possible.  It’s called Acceledent Aura and it can reduce orthodontic treatment time by as much as 50 percent and sometimes more.

This exciting new technology is a hands-free appliance that you use for twenty minutes each day as a counterpart to the orthodontic treatment your doctor has prescribed. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration as cleared it as being safe and effective in clinical trials.

Accelendet Aura is lightweight and stimulates tooth movement, while decreasing discomfort often associated with the orthodontic treatment process. It is a vibratory orthodontic device that has given thousands of patients faster, better results in their orthodontia treatment.

By precisely applying calibrated vibrations called micropulses, AcceleDent’s SoftPulse Technology® transmits these micropulses to the roots of your teeth to the surrounding bone. This increases cellular activity and increases how much your teeth can move. Less pain and discomfort are another benefit of AcceleDent Aura.

If you’ve been wrestling with the idea of getting the perfect teeth you’ve always wanted, AcceleDent Aura could be just what you want.
