About

Bio

We believe very strongly in preventive dental medicine. "Less is More!!!" The least amount of man-made materials placed into your mouth the better. As such, we are very conservative and believe that each patient should have all the choices presented to them that modern dentistry has to offer. Together, doctor and patient, we will decide the best course of treatment taking into account your individual set of circumstances.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Floss, Brush, Diet: You should floss at least once daily and brush twice daily. Drink plenty of water, minimize sugary drinks and foods. Of course, you should see your dentist regularly.

Let time pass: That bump is normal....It is tissue that covers a nerve and blood vessels ... This tissue can be easily injured (hot pizza, scalding soup, hard bread crust, etc.) resulting in it becoming swollen. Keep the area clean, maybe use some salt water rinses, and give it some time to heal on its own. If it does not get better in about a week you should visit your dentist.

Absolutely: Mouth breathing can most certainly cause gingivitis! to minimize the gingivitis, first you must have excellent oral hygiene including daily flossing and brushing. Also it might be prudent to see if you have a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea or even plain old snoring both of which could cause the mouth breathing and thus the gingivitis. Best to start simply with meticulous oral hygiene.
