Teaching Kids About Caring for Their TEETH!

April 24, 2019

Filed under: anxiety-free dentistry,dentist,gum disease,healthy teeth and gums — roselleparkdental @ 1:45 pm
Dr. Oshidar recently visited his daughter Arianna’s preschool class to teach the kids all about how to take care of their teeth!

It’s never too early to start teaching kids about the importance of good dental care. While children aren’t able to brush and floss their teeth independently until approximately Kindergarten or 1st grade, preschoolers are eager to start figuring out how to do things on their own. Learning about good oral hygiene habits at a young age – including brushing and flossing – sets children up for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums!

Make It FUN! Young children learn best through play, so when teaching them about dental care make it a game. Give them educational pictures to color, sing songs while they are brushing, and teach them about plaque and decay using playdough or paint. Another great tool is to let your preschooler play with the Colgate Tooth Fairy app which includes a game that makes defending teeth against bacteria fun. It also includes a tooth map for showing your child where teeth are coming through or have been lost.

Let Them Be In Charge. Preschoolers love to feel empowered through choice. Letting them pick out which color toothbrush they want and what flavor toothpaste they use will make them excited to brush their teeth. Also, consider getting them a special timer that they can use while brushing to ensure they brush for the full two minutes.

Model Good Behavior. Children look to their parents’ and caregivers’ behavior to determine how they should act. So the best way to ensure they grow up being proactive about their dental health is to model the habits you want them to adopt. If they see you brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash each morning and night, they are more likely to do so themselves. Better yet: make dental care a family affair and have a tooth brushing pajama party altogether each night!

Dr. Oshidar Gifted a St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Dedication Brick

February 5, 2019

Filed under: dentist — Tags: , , — roselleparkdental @ 3:31 pm

In addition to being an excellent dentist and an expert in the field of implant dentistry, Dr. Oshidar has a huge heart. When you mention kids to him – especially his own – he just melts. For the past few years, he has donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital: an organization that helps sick children and supports their families during their illness.

So for his holiday gift this year, the Roselle Park Dental & Implants staff collectively purchased Dr. Oshidar a dedication brick from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The brick was engraved, and will be placed on the hospital’s “Pathway of Hope” in Tennessee.

St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80%. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because they believe all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

2019 New Year’s Resolution: Healthy Smile!

January 3, 2019

Filed under: Uncategorized — roselleparkdental @ 3:56 pm

The start of a New Year is the perfect time to transform our habits and behaviors, since it affords us a clean slate. As we reflect on what we want to improve about our lives, we often focus on our health: eat better, exercise more, get enough sleep, etc. This year, why not mix it up a little?  Make 2019 the year you resolve to get the healthy and beautiful smile you deserve!

Did you know that your oral health has a direct impact on your overall health? According to the Mayo Clinic, studies suggest that oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with periodontitis — a severe form of gum disease — might play a role in some diseases. In addition, certain diseases, such as diabetes and HIV/AIDS, can lower the body’s resistance to infection, making oral health problems more severe.

So, how can you improve your oral health? 

Brush AND Floss Every Day
While most people are motivated to brush their teeth every day, according to a Delta Dental survey, only four of 10 Americans floss at least once a day, and 20 percent never floss! If you already have a habit of brushing your teeth before bed each night, try adding flossing to the routine – tell yourself you can’t brush your teeth until you have flossed them.

Visit Us – Your Dentist! – Every Six Months for Routine Checkups and Cleaning
This is important for two reasons. First of all, we miss you if we don’t see you twice a year! And secondly, having any plaque build up removed professionally by your hygienist prevents tartar from forming which can lead to cavities and gum disease. Additionally, seeing the dentist frequently allows him or her to look for any signs of decay or changes since your last visit. If small problems are caught early they can often be corrected before they become larger and worse issues.

Fix or Replace Broken and Missing Teeth
Many people do not realize that dental reconstruction should be a primary health concern. Living with one or multiple missing teeth can have a devastating impact on your quality of life. Over time, it can negatively affect not just your psychological well-being and confidence, but also your overall health. In the absence of tooth roots, a person’s facial features can shift out of proper alignment, resulting in sagging or misshaped facial features.

We would love to help you achieve your healthiest most beautiful smile in 2019! Visit us at www.roselleparkdental.com or call us today to schedule your next appointment: 908-998-4698.

The Fallen War Heroes Memorial 5k – Raising Money for Rebuilding Warriors

December 20, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — roselleparkdental @ 3:37 pm

One of my patients is in charge of this fundraiser for injured veterans: the Fallen War Heroes Memorial 5k. As most of my patients know, this a cause that is very near and dear to my heart because of my time in the United States Air Force (USAF). The event was held in Lake Como, NJ and despite inclement weather, the memorial run had almost 900 runners and walkers.

The race raised over $25,000, a fifth of which was gifted to Corporal Scott Nokes from Neptune. Corporal Nokes lost his eyesight and both his legs from a rare illness contracted during his two tours of duty in the Middle East. A home is being built for him in Howell through the Steven Stiller Foundation

The rest of the money raised by the 5k was generously donated to Rebuilding Warriors, a non-profit organization that provides service dogs to veterans.

In attendance were New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and his wife Tammy. After the race, there was a barbecue and a memorial service celebrating all those who lost their lives on 9/11. 

If you would like to join me in sponsoring or donating to this amazing cause, please visit: www.rebuildingwarriors.com/index.html.
