During the entire month of July, we are having an Invisalign special! The special includes $500 OFF an Invisalign treatment and a FREE teeth whitening kit. Invisalign is the easiest and quickest way to move teeth, without the inconvenience of braces. Why would you want rubber bands and wires in your mouth, when you can have invisible braces? These invisible braces are made with clear, snap on-snap off, plastic aligners. With this design format, the aligners are not noticeable, unlike metal braces. They also allow you to continue enjoying whatever food and drinks you like, due to the snap on-snap off feature. Invisalign is a fast and comfortable way to straighten your teeth. Ultimately, Invisalign will keep your smile cleaner, healthier, and whiter.

What to Expect?

When you first come to our office you will be given a free iTero Invisalign scan. This scan shows us what your smile will look like after a completed Invisalign treatment plan. Once you decide that Invisalign is right for you is when we will start your treatment plan.

How fast is fast?

The entire length of the treatment is a case by case basis. It all depends on the severity of the case and how consistent you are with wearing the aligners. Invisalign patients must wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day. This means you can take the aligners off when you are eating, drinking, and brushing your teeth. After that, snap them back on! With that in mind, on average, a common patient can expect their treatment plan to last about a year.

The aftermath?

When you are finished with your Invisalign treatment and your teeth look perfect, it will be time to celebrate! Your doctor will meet with you to complete another scan (similar to your first visit.) Once the scan is completed, your doctor will make a clear, removable retainer for you to wear at nighttime only. This nighttime retainer will ensure that your teeth stay perfect.

Why wait?

The best thing about Invisalign is that you are in control. The more compliant you are about wearing your aligners, the faster your treatment will be complete. Give us a call at (215) 568-6222 and come in for a free new patient consultation. When you call, mention to our new patient coordinator that you would like to receive a free iTero Invisalign scan. This will allow you to see for yourself the potential outcome of your new smile.

Do you find yourself constantly smirking in photos because you don’t want to show your teeth? Are you not 100% happy with what you see in the mirror? You might be a good candidate for a Smile Makeover. What is a Smile Makeover? A Smile Makeover is a dental procedure that works to give you a healthier and more attractive smile. Say goodbye to all of your dental insecurities.

What’s so important about a smile?

Naturally, every human feels a sensation of positivity when they see others around them smile. Smiles make us feel comfortable. Smiling can also boost our own health. Studies show that simply smiling can boost moods, lower stress, and possibly prolong your life. Therefore, smiles are good for everyone!

What exactly do Smile Makeovers fix?

Smile Makeovers fix aesthetic issues and function issues. For instance, if your teeth are dull, chipped, worn, oddly shaped, or cracked, a smile makeover can fix that. Those are all aesthetic issues that can cause low confidence. You shouldn’t let your insecurities get the best of you though, especially when there are ways to fight back. If you are experiencing pain, tooth loss, decay, or infection, a smile makeover can fix that too. There is no reason anyone shouldn’t be able to go about daily tasks without any pain or issues. That’s where a smile makeover can come to the rescue.

Gain back your confidence.

Having problems with your teeth is the worst, especially if you are feeling discomfort. It’s time to stop overthinking pictures. The days of low self-confidence are over. It is now your time to take control and become confident again.

When people think about their health it is normal to categorize it. We categorize our mental health with our feelings, our oral health with our mouth, our physical health with our body, etc. However, it is important to remember that all of these categories make up our overall health. They all work together to keep us healthy. Specifically, let’s dive into the correlation between our oral health and mental health.

veeneer brochure pic

The Facts

Studies show that two-thirds of toothache reports came from people who were suffering from a mental health issue. Research also shows that 50% of people who suffered from depression, classified their teeth as average or poor. A review of many studies found a strong correlation between gum disease and mental health illnesses such as anxiety, depression, and stress.

Behavioral Changes

So, with those facts, you might ask why there is this scientific link. The link comes from the behavioral effects of mental illnesses. Anxiety, depression, and stress can cause people to subconsciously change their behavior. For example, a person with depression usually loses interest in activities, which ultimately causes impairment in daily life tasks. More specifically, a person with depression can be inconsistent with brushing their teeth, maintaining a good diet, and visiting the dentist. Another example can be made with anxiety. People who suffer from anxiety are more likely to grind their teeth.

Biological Effects

In addition to possible behavioral effects, mental illnesses can affect our oral health due to biological reasons. There is a hormone called ‘cortisol’ that impacts our body when we feel a lot of stress. When the hormone levels increase, the immune system gets weaker. When this happens, it can result in vulnerability to gum disease. Another biological effect can occur due to medications. Often people with mental illnesses are prescribed medications to cope with their illness. These medications can cause a dry mouth. This dry mouth can mean that plaque, bacteria, and debris aren’t getting rinsed properly. This ultimately means there is more opportunity for cavities to form.

Fight Back

Thankfully, when mental illnesses affect our oral health, there are things to do that can help. Finding a good dental practice that considers your overall health is the first step. At Philadelphia Dentistry, we value the health and safety of all of our patients. Patient care is our number one priority. Therefore, booking an appointment with us will ensure your mental health is not affecting your oral health.

Philly Dentistry Sets the Record Straight

woman in pain“My teeth don’t hurt, so I don’t need to go to the dentist.” “I brush my teeth fast and hard so the plaque is removed faster and better.” “My teeth are fairly white so they’re fine.” “Gum disease only affects my mouth.” These are all common dental myths that people often fall victim to believing. As a result, patients suffer the consequences due to a lack of information. In an effort to educate, let’s dive into some myths.

“My teeth don’t hurt, so I don’t need to go to the dentist.”

Maintaining good oral health is linked to a person’s overall health. However, many people think that they can go years without visiting their dentist. There are many reasons why this could happen. People might have dentist fears, financial issues, think no pain means that they’re OK, etc. Whatever the reason, it is important for people to visit the dentist twice a year. During these visits, we will have the opportunity to examine your teeth. When examining, we see cavities, damaged teeth, discolorations, etc. It’s important to have these opportunities so that we can replace existing dental work through cosmetic and/or restorative dentistry. Visiting twice a year will ensure a happier and healthier life.

“I brush my teeth fast and hard so the plaque is removed faster and better.”

Brushing your teeth harder or faster is not considered a good thing. The notion of “brushing your teeth” is often thought of as “scrubbing your teeth.” Scrubbing is not the correct word, as scrubbing can be too harsh on our teeth and gums. It is important to be gentle with our smiles. We should be brushing our teeth twice a day for 2 minutes each time. Check out this video of our hygienist, Rachel, properly explaining how to brush your teeth.

“My teeth are fairly white so they’re fine.”

Just like the rainbow, there are a plethora of shades for each color. Teeth come in a wide range of white shades because each person has a different shade of white. However, no one wants to have dark or discolored teeth. If you look at your teeth in the mirror and aren’t 100% satisfied with the color, you would be a good candidate for a smile makeover. Smile makeovers fix your smile aesthetically by changing the color, shape, spaces, bite, etc. These changes are proven to boost the patient’s confidence, as a smile is usually the first thing others see. However, smile makeovers don’t limit themselves to aesthetics. Smile makeovers cover functional aspects such as gum disease, infection, decay, tooth loss, etc.

“Gum disease only affects my mouth.”

Gum disease, otherwise known as gingivitis, does affect your oral health. It can cause you to have bad breath, tooth loss, pain, and more. So much more, that it doesn’t stop at just affecting your oral health. Gum disease can affect the rest of your health as well. Gum disease may increase your risk for heart disease or strokes, diabetes, and premature birth. If you want to have a healthier smile and life, consider coming in for a free gum disease assessment.

Now that you have some myths debunked, let’s get connected to ensure your teeth are as healthy as they can be. To stay social with us, follow us on social media – @PhillyDentistry on Instagram, @PhiladelphiaDentistry on Facebook, and @DrKenCirkaDMD on Twitter!

What’s New at Philly Dentistry

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things in our daily lives. Throughout the changes though, an important factor shines through – health and safety. The health and safety of our patients has always been our number one priority at Philadelphia Dentistry. We have implemented new procedures at our office to ensure the best environment. All in all, these slight changes align with our consistent priority of health and safety. That is something our patients are most definitely used to!

What to Expect: Before Your Appointment

When booking your appointment, you will be asked some quick health questions. These questions are asked to ensure no one who has been exposed to COVID-19 comes into our office. For example, “Have you tested positive for COIVD-19,” is one of our standard questions. You will be asked these same questions again once you arrive for your appointment. This will ensure nothing has changed with your health since the last time we spoke. We also ask that you limit the number of people you bring with you to your appointment. Ideally, our patients would come alone. Check out this video to watch our new building entry procedure, as we walk you through it step by step!

What to Expect: During Your Appointment

Dr Mimi Jeon in PPEIt is required that all patients wear masks to enter our building. When you arrive, you may be asked to wait outside until we are ready for you to come up. We do this to reduce the number of patients in our office and to reduce the amount of time you are close to other people. You will also have your temperature taken to ensure you are under the degree limit of 100.4° or higher. Expect to see your doctors and hygienists dressed in disposable gowns, double-masked, wearing face shields and scrub caps. Rest assured; a friendly face is always behind the mask. Pictured is Dr. Mimi Jeon dressed in her PPE gear.

What to Expect: After Your Appointment

After your appointment, our staff will clean the room. Cleanliness is another thing we hold to a high standard at Philadelphia Dentistry. We only want the best environment for our patients. We clean our rooms with disinfectants that are effective against the virus. We do this to prepare for the next patient, and frequently throughout the day. By keeping our office clean, we are reducing the risk of spreading the virus to others.

Maintaining good health involves visiting your dentist regularly. Therefore, don’t forget to book your next appointment with us on your way out. To stay connected with us, follow us on social media @PhillyDentistry on Instagram, @PhiladelphiaDentistry on Facebook, and @DrKenCirkaDMD on Twitter!

tooth-colored fillings

 

1. How do you correctly brush your teeth? The American Dental Association states that a soft-bristled toothbrush should be used to properly brush your teeth. Why is it important to use a soft-bristled toothbrush? It’s because the soft bristles help you reduce the risk of any trauma like recession on your gums. After you get a soft-bristled toothbrush the next step is to brush at a 45-degree angle with the bristles angled toward the gums. Next, gently move the toothbrush in short circular motions. It’s important to be sure to brush all the areas of the tooth and gums, including the outer surfaces, inner surfaces and finally the chewing surfaces. Don’t forget to brush your tongue as well to remove any harmful bacteria. All this should be done for 2 minutes a day, twice a day to have healthy teeth and gums for life.

2. Flossing? Is it that important? Yes! Yes! Yes! Flossing is very important. When you brush your teeth you only clean 60% of your mouth. Flossing then takes care of the last 40%. Most people don’t realize this and if you think about it would you only want to clean 60% of your body when you shower? I know I wouldn’t, so why only clean 60% of your teeth. If you don’t floss you have a much higher risk of major dental diseases such as, gum disease, cavities and tooth decay which can also lead to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, etc. By taking care of your oral hygiene you’re taking care of your entire body’s health.

3. Piggy backing off of flossing, how do you properly floss? First step is to take about 12-16 inches of floss and wrap each end around your middle fingers. It’s important to leave around 2-3 inches of floss between your hands. Using your thumb and pointer finger to hold the floss then gently insert the floss between the teeth using a sawing motion. Curve the floss around each tooth using a “C” shape motion. Gently move the floss up and down under the gum line, cleaning each side of the tooth.

4. How often am I supposed to floss? It’s important to always brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. We recommend that you do these daily rituals every morning and every night before bed.

5. Manual or electric toothbrush? Both toothbrushes can effectively clean your teeth. The manual will be effective if used properly. If you are older and have difficulty using a manual toothbrush then an electric toothbrush is best for you. At your next dentist appointment talk to your dentist to see which option is best for you.

6. What toothpaste should I use? With so many toothpaste options out there it’s important to pick the right one for you. When you are in the market for a new tube of toothpaste it’s important to look for fluoride as an ingredient. Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay and cavities from forming. A good tip to look for is for the ADA Seal of Acceptance. These toothpastes are officially approved by the American Dental Association through scientific evidence demonstrating their safety and ability to prevent tooth decay, gingivitis and tartar buildup.

7. What can I do for my bad breath? Some ways to help fight bad breath is to practice great oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing and don’t forget to brush your tongue. If you use tobacco products there’s a better chance you are suffering from bad breath so stop using them as soon as possible. Be sure to drink plenty of water to help wash out your mouth from any bacteria. When using mouthwash look for mouthwash without any alcohol in it as an ingredient.

8. How do I know if I have gum disease? A lot of times people may not know they have periodontal or gum disease because the symptoms are “silent” and cause no pain in the beginning stages. Here are some signs to look for if you think you may have periodontal disease. Red, puffy and bleeding gums, your gums are starting to recede, you notice any newly formed gaps between your teeth, your teeth are starting to get loose and you notice you are having consistently bad breath. If you are noticing any of those signs it’s time to contact Philly Dentistry to get checked out so we can stop the periodontal disease before it worsens.

9. How often should I visit the dentist? It’s normally recommended that you visit the dentist for cleanings and check ups every 6 months. This allows the dentist to find any small problems before they become larger problems. When you get a cleaning from our wonderful hygienists they remove and calculus or tartar buildup that cannot be removed by a toothbrush. Not everyone is the same so if you are more prone to cavities or gum disease our dentists may say that you need to visit our hygiene team every 3-4 months.

10. Why are my teeth turning yellow? Stained teeth are usually caused by aging, food, drinks, such as, coffee, tea, red wine, etc. and smoking causes your teeth to stain as well. It’s just a part of life for your teeth to stain over time, but luckily for you Philly Dentistry offers professional whitening treatments to get rid of any stains and can even whiten your smile by 10 times!

Give us a call at 215-568-6222 and we can set you up with a free new patient consultation so we can detect any early signs of any type of dental problem you may be dealing with.

If you are unhappy with your current smile, then you are most likely researching cosmetic dentistry procedures. At Philly Dentistry, we offer numerous cosmetic treatments to fix any problems you may be suffering with. Have you ever thought about getting porcelain veneers to fix your smile? During the whole month of March take advantage of our monthly special of buy 6 veneers and get 2 for free! That’s a saving of over $3,000! Here are the six most common signs that porcelain veneers are the right choice for you.

before & after

1. Do you have chipped, cracked or broken teeth?
There are a few options to fix problems like broken or chipped teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great option to fix this common dental problem. Our accomplished doctors will customize your veneers to match perfectly with your natural teeth to give you that perfect smile you’ve always wanted.

2. Are you unhappy with your smile?
If you’re reading this right now there’s a good chance, you’re unhappy with your smile. Whether it’s crooked, chipped, gap, or stained teeth to name a few common problems, our talented cosmetic dentists will get you smiling again! All you need to do to fix your smile is schedule a free new patient consultation and one of our doctors will give you an exam to see which cosmetic procedure would be best for your specific smile.

3. Do you have a gap or gaps between your teeth?
Having gaps big or small in between your teeth can leave you feeling embarrassed, while covering your mouth every time you smile. No one wants to feel that way and to fix these gaps you can choose to get porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers give you a natural looking smile that will make you proud to smile again. At your appointment our doctors will evaluate your smile to determine if veneers are the best option for you, instead of other treatments like tooth bonding and Invisalign to close your gaps.

4. Do you have extremely stained or discolored teeth?
Many patients try over-the-counter whitening methods without much success. Some patients report some slight changes in the whiteness of their teeth, but nothing too dramatic. When your teeth are extremely stained, sometimes even in-office professional whitening will not make much of a difference. For patients like this, we recommend porcelain veneers. Many patients get veneers for a whiter, more uniform smile to get completely rid of any type of stains.

5. Are your teeth misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped?
If you have some minor alignment issues with your teeth than veneers can resolve the problem easily. For more extreme alignment issues we recommend getting Invisalign to straighten your teeth. For patients who have uneven or irregularly shaped teeth, veneers can be the best option. Our doctors will work with you to customize the size, shape and color of your veneers to give you that smile you’ve always wanted.

6. Are your teeth worn down?
Over time your teeth can get worn down typically from teeth grinding or clenching, known as bruxism. When you grind or clench on a regular basis, the tops of your teeth can become flat and dull over time. This can result in more dental problems if not handled properly. For any patient who have worn down their teeth, porcelain veneers can restore the appearance of your teeth and provide more stability for your dental health.

So, give us a call at 215-568-6222 and schedule your free new patient consultation with one of our excellent doctors! With the most experience with veneers in Philadelphia, you won’t be disappointed. There’s a reason professional athletes, movie stars, musicians and many more trust us with their smile! We want to give you that perfect smile you have always dreamed about. Smile more with Philly Dentistry!

Invisalign is the modern way to straighten your teeth over those big metal embarrassing braces we all had as a kid or teenager. Invisalign’s custom-fitted, clear aligner trays are made specifically for you. Every 2-3 weeks you will receive a new set of trays until your treatment is finished and your teeth are perfect.

LinkedIn Post

Here are seven advantages for Invisalign over braces.

1. Your clear aligners are so much less noticeable than traditional metal braces. Some people may not even notice you’re wearing them!

2. Unlike metal braces that are attached to your teeth, Invisalign trays can be removed whenever you want to eat or drink.

3. You can clean your teeth way easier with Invisalign, just simply remove the trays and brush and floss like you would normally do when you were not doing Invisalign.

4. There will be fewer appointments with visits to our Philly Dentistry office only every 4-6 weeks.

5. No food restrictions like you have with metal braces. You don’t need to worry about brackets coming off or getting loose and don’t worry about food being stuck between them.

6. Some people face metal allergies so if this happens to be you, Invisalign is the best choice for you because they’re metal-free.

7. Invisalign trays are more comfortable than metal brackets. I remember having metal braces cut the inside of my cheeks and gums and that was not fun. With Invisalign you don’t need to worry about any metal in your mouth at all. Your Invisalign trays will be smooth and comfortable for your specific smile.

If you believe Invisalign might be the best option for you give us a call at 215-568-6222 and we will set you up with a free new patient consultation. At this appointment our great doctors will determine if Invisalign is the best option for you. You can even get a free iTero scan, which allows you to see what your teeth will look like with Invisalign, before you even start your treatment. Send us an email at info@phillydentistry with any questions you have and don’t forget to follow us on social media @PhillyDentistry. Thanks for reading!

Whenever you hear the words, “root canal” this can be enough to make people get scared and cringe. The image most people see in their head when they think of a root canal is someone holding their jaw in pain while moaning. This image you think of is because how movies, TV shows and cartoons perpetuate root canals. With advancements in technology modern day root canals are nothing like they used to be. In this blog you’ll learn the facts vs the myths of modern-day root canals.

woman in pain

Reasons why you may need a root canal? There can be a few different reasons why your dentist will tell you that you need a root canal. The most common reasons are cracked teeth, damaged teeth, deep cavities, abscesses, and trauma.

Myth number one. A root canal is painful. Root canals don’t cause pain, they relieve pain. With today’s modern anesthetics and technology, a root canal is no more painful than someone getting a simple cavity filled. One of our great dentists will make sure you are comfortably numb and relaxed before they remove the pain causing infection from your tooth. After the dentist cleans out the tooth, they will fill in the hole to seal out any further bacteria while repairing the enamel of the tooth with a filling or cap the tooth with a crown.

Myth number two. It’s better to have your tooth removed than a root canal. The last resort should always be a tooth extraction. Nothing functions as well as your own natural teeth, so by preserving them whenever you can is always the best option. A root canal allows you to keep your now healthy natural tooth. This will prevent you from having to resort to other dental treatments, such as bridges or implants to fill in the gap if your tooth gets extracted.

Myth number three. You only need a root canal if your tooth hurts. Sometimes a tooth’s root infection has become so unembellished that the tooth can actually die. You may no longer be feeling any pain, but the infection is still present and damaging your underlying bone structure. Even at this point a root canal can still save the tooth structure itself. By going to your routine dental checkups and exams every 6 months our dentists will be able to detect any signs of a tooth infection and can deal with the problem before it becomes painful and harmful.

Myth number four. Root canals take a couple visits to complete. Nowadays, most root canals can be completed in just a couple of hours. If there is no serious infection, they usually can be finished in one appointment at Philly Dentistry. You may need to return only if you need a filling or crown procedure.

Myth number five. Infections are common after your root canal procedure. It is possible for a re-infection of the tooth to happen, but it’s not very common at all. If an infection returns you will need further treatment. With advancements in latest dental materials for root canals they are now designed to significantly reduce the likelihood of re-infection.”

So, have no fear Philly Dentistry is here for all your general and cosmetic dentistry problems. Now that you know the facts about root canals, don’t believe the myths you hear. If you think you may need a root canal give us a call at 215-568-6222 or send us an email at info@phillydentistry.com.

Nowadays, there are so many whitening options whether it’s do it yourself whitening or in-office whitening. Mostly everyone wants a nice white smile to give them better confidence in their ever day life. In this blog you’ll learn the difference between DIY whitening and in-office whitening to decide which option is best for you.

37108441_241884573201578_3551411584075038720_n

You may be wondering what are the active ingredients that are in teeth whitening products? All whitening agents use a peroxide ingredient. Whitening varies according to the strength of the peroxide content. A mild whitening product can contain as little as only 10% of peroxide while a much stronger whitener can contain as much as 40% peroxide. Buying over the counter teeth whitening products like whitening strips have a much lower concentration of peroxide. When you get whitening from a dental office, whether it be custom-made take home trays or in-office ZOOM whitening, the results are much better because the peroxide solution is much stronger.

How white can your teeth get from do it yourself whitening vs. in-office whitening? Whether you use do it yourself whitening at home or our in-office whitening, the whitening solution can only make your teeth as white as your natural tooth color. This is ultimately determined by the thickness of your enamel and how stained the dentine is underneath it. Teeth whitening can remove any stains from food, coffee and wine from the enamel. With store bought whitening you are not getting as much peroxide as whitening you get from a dental office so; it will not whiten your teeth as much as professional whitening. Over the counter whitening can definitely improve the whiteness of your teeth, but this will take a lot longer than in-office whitening.

You’re probably wondering will whitening products improve my entire smile? Do it yourself at home whitening typically only whitens your front teeth, given the way they are designed. In-office professional whitening will whiten your whole smile more effectively. With custom-made take-home trays you will put the whitening gel into the trays to place in your mouth for about 7-15 minutes a day for 7 to 10 days. The whitening gel solution will coat the side teeth just as effectively as the front teeth, giving you a more consistent white smile. If you have about an hour to spend in our office, we can do ZOOM whitening. ZOOM whitening is another great full mouth whitening solution. One of our great dentists or dental assistants will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel directly to your teeth and then shine a specialized ZOOM light on the teeth to brighten your smile. The light and gel work together to give you the best possible whitening results.

This all sounds great, but what’s the catch? The side effects from any type of whitening depending on the person can cause sensitivity for the treatment period. Typically, when you buy store bought whitening you will not experience any sensitivity because of the low levels of peroxide. If you have sensitive teeth some dentists will suggest using a store-bought whitening to start off and then moving forward to an in-office whitening treatment. After your whitening treatment you should avoid eating or drinking extremely hot or extremely cold foods or drinks, which can cause sensitivity. Another side effect from teeth whitening can be irritated and burning gums. This should be only minor and will heal, but it can be unpleasant. Our dentists will teach our patients on how to properly use the whitening gel at home so you don’t risk burning your gums or making your teeth sensitive.
