WHEN WAS YOUR LAST CLEANING?

November 10, 2020

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — roselleparkdental @ 4:34 pm

As a friendly reminder, if you have dental work you’ve put on hold, now is a good time to schedule an appointment to maximize your insurance benefits.

Even if you don’t need extensive treatment, you should schedule a regular check-up and cleaning appointment to help prevent costly procedures in the future.

You’re probably paying a monthly premium to keep your insurance, so be sure to use it before the year end!

It is also a great time to use any remaining flexible account dollars you may have saved up. Flexible accounts are created to set aside pre-tax dollars for medical and dental expenses, but if that money is not used before the end of the year, it is lost to you forever.

Our holiday season does book quickly, so call us today at (908) 998-4698 or visit roselleparkdental.com to schedule your appointment. If you have any questions about your insurance coverage or benefits, we would be happy to help you. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Happy National Dental Hygiene Month

October 22, 2019

This October, celebrate national dental hygiene month by thanking your dental hygienist and taking great care of your teeth!

Good dental hygiene is of the utmost importance to your oral and overall health, and visiting your dentist and hygienist twice a year for professional cleanings and checkups is one of the best ways you can ensure your healthy smile will last for a lifetime!

This year, the American Dental Association (ADA) is focusing on four routines to help people maintain healthy smiles: brush, floss, rinse, and chew!

  1. Do You Know the “Correct” Way to Brush Your Teeth? Proper brushing technique is to hold the tooth brush at a 45-degree angle to the gum line and gently move it back and forth, making sure to clean both the inside and outside of your teeth. Make sure to use a soft bristle brush that fits easily around your teeth and replace it every two to three months.
  2. To Floss or Not to Floss – Despite recent media surrounding the effectiveness of regular flossing, dental professionals still advise that we floss every day to keep our teeth and gums their healthiest! In addition to preventing gum disease and tooth decay, it provides a regular opportunity to closely exam inside the mouth for redness, swelling, or chipped or broken teeth.
  3. #DoTheSwish – We all know that using mouthwash is a great way to freshen our breath, but did you know it also helps to prevent tooth decay and gingivitis? When used before brushing and flossing, it can help to remove additional food particles that could otherwise become cavity causing plaque build-up.
  4.  Choose What You Chew Wisely –Enjoying sugar-free gum can have several benefits for your oral health in most instances. The physical act of chewing causes the body to increase salvia production, which then helps to wash away food particles after a meal or snack.  Additionally, most sugar-free gum is sweetened with xylitol, a naturally occurring alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables. Xylitol is proven to inhibit the growth of a bacteria that causes cavities.

This year for the very first time The American Dental Hygienists’ Association (ADHA) has partnered with Walgreens and Listerine to raise awareness for national dental hygiene month. Search for a participating Walgreens near you and #DoTheSwish for a chance to win!

Celebrate Fight Procrastination Day – Visit Your Dentist!

September 6, 2019

Today, September 6th, is Fight Procrastination Day – a day to encourage people to fight the urge to delay doing important tasks – like visiting the dentist! In honor of this unofficial holiday, we looked into why we procrastinate in the first place, why it can be bad for us, and how to stop for good.

Why do we procrastinate? So why do we put off certain tasks? When faced with doing something that we think might be challenging, time consuming, or uncomfortable, we might try to avoid the hardship by putting it off. For instance, for some people visiting the dentist can seem intimidating if they have had a bad past experience. Other people who are perfectionists often procrastinate due to the need to do a task perfectly – which is often impossible – so they don’t do it at all. 

Is this avoidance bad for us? Sometimes procrastinating can actually be a good thing: some people are deadline driven and work well under pressure. However, the longer we avoid doing something we don’t want to do, the more overwhelming it becomes. For example, if we have a fear of visiting the dentist we might avoid going and miss our annual dental checkup. Then the next year, it becomes even scarier since you know you have not had your teeth checked in a while. In this way, procrastinating creates even greater anxiety. 

How can we stop putting things off? The scientific rule that an object in motion stays in motion, is the perfect solution for changing habitual procrastinating. The best thing to do when faced with a task you would rather wait to accomplish – is to get started right away! Breaking down a task that seems daunting into small steps makes taking the very first step quick and easy. For example, when we think about visiting the dentist, instead of wasting time and energy stressing about the future appointment – we could take action by calling and scheduling the cleaning. Once that is done, we will have a date in place to take the next step, which feels more manageable. 

Once we get started, how do we keep going? Consistency is key! Keep seeing the dentist every six months to keep your momentum going and book your next appointment before you leave the office each time. Here are some other tips on building good habits or combating bad ones:

  • Create accountability for yourself by asking a friend to check in with you about your progress.
  • Ask yourself: “What is the worst thing that could happen if I do it today?”
  • Reward yourself.
  • Stop trying to do it perfectly … and just DO IT!

Don’t delay! Call us today to schedule your next dental cleaning and checkup: 908-998-4698!

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.
