FLUORIDE PROTECTS TEETH

FLUORIDE PROTECTS TEETH! Leaving toothpaste residue in your mouth after brushing will maximize its effectiveness.
There are many benefits of fluoride. Adults and children that are at a higher risk of cavities, poor oral hygiene, patients in ortho treatment, patients that have dry mouth (lack of saliva can make the teeth more susceptible to cavities) and patients with sensitivity. Since the American diet is high in sugar, acid and fermentable carbs, all patients from every age group can benefit from the re-mineralizing action of fluoride. Even patients with healthy diets such as those who frequently consume fruit and vegetable juices (which can be very acidic) can benefit from fluoride to strengthen their enamel.

Fluoride Varnish is a highly concentrated, professionally applied treatment that is safe and very effective in lowering your risk of cavities and/or sensitivity. Some studies have proven that when Fluoride Varnish is applied every 6 months at your dental cleanings, it can lower your risk of cavities up to 70%! Fluoride varnish takes just seconds to apply! It is a gel-like substance that is brushed on to the surfaces of the teeth and dries quickly so that it can release fluoride over time directly in to the tooth. The best part is that because it dries so rapidly, there is no wait time to eat or drink after the application! There are a few simple rules to follow after application which your hygienist can explain to you at your appointment.

Please call us to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Sam Namdarian for a dental exam and cleaning. Our hygienists at Fresno Smile Makeovers can give the best oral hygiene advices for your whole family. We are glad to serve our community in Fresno, Clovis, Madera and many other cities in central valley.

Oral cancer screening is an examination performed by a dentist to look for signs of cancer or precancerous conditions in your mouth.
The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure.
All dentists must perform an examination of your mouth during a routine dental visit to screen for oral cancer.
In the United States approximately 36,500 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer each year and about 7,900 will die from the disease.
Check out for these signs:
Chronic sore throat with or without swelling
Alterations to the color, and texture of mouth tissue
Lump in the neck area
Persistent painful swallowing

NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE

Announcement from Fresno Smile Makeovers:

In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, our office will be closed until Monday, April 13. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance on social separation. If you have an appointment with us during this time, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.

 

As always, we will be available for emergency care if it were to arise during this time. There will be a dentist on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require this emergency care, please call our office as you normally would by phone or text as messages will be checked at 8:00 AM each day that our office is closed. If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency or you can not wait until the next business day, please refer to your nearest emergency room, or urgent care facility.

 

A dental emergency includes: teeth that have been knocked out (evulsed), forced out of position (extruded), or broken (fractured), injuries to soft tissue of mouth, swelling, or infection.

 

We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours. Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. Please refer to our website for the most up to date information: https://fresnosmilemakeovers.com

 

During this time of uncertainty, we want to express our concerns about your wellbeing and that of your families and friends. Thank you for being a valued patient.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Sam Namdarian and Staff
