Dr. Sam Namdarian Introduces New & Faster Orthodontic Treatment

Fresno, CA.  December 11, 2015– Dr. Sam Namdarian of Fresno, CA, is excited to announce that Fresno Smile Makeovers is now offering Propel Excelleration, an innovative accelerated orthodontic option that fast tracks patient’s orthodontic treatment. Excelleration allows patients to achieve the same excellent orthodontic results but in much shorter treatment time that also means less office visits.

Propel Excelleration reduces the amount of time patients are in braces or clear aligners by working with the body’s own natural biology to stimulate the bone surrounding the teeth, helping the teeth to move faster. The simple 3-step in-office treatment is performed in minutes by the doctor and is done during a patient’s regularly scheduled appointment. Excelleration yields no discomfort to the patient and requires no recovery time so normal daily activities can be resumed immediately. Results from patients who have already received Excelleration have been exceptional in a range of cases including spacing, crowding, open bite, cross bite, and more.

“It has been my honor and privilege to work and reach the needs of the people in this city. I feel very blessed to be able to treat our patients with compassion, gentleness and at the same time to be able to make a new smile for them, which I truly believe is a life changer. In my state of art dental office, we offer general dentistry with more focus on cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, and sleep Apnea.”  ~Sam Namdarian

Whether a patient is looking to prepare for their wedding day, an upcoming graduation, or just simply wants to finish treatment sooner, Propel Excelleration will help give them that beautiful smile in faster time.

Patients seeking additional information on Propel’s advanced orthodontic treatment are encouraged to call Fresno Smile Makeovers at (559)431-1772.

Denture

Often times people are missing teeth due to periodontal disease, decay, trauma or genetic defects. Dentists will coordinate with a lab to create dentures, or false teeth, to replace the missing teeth. Dentures can replace a few missing teeth on the same arch (partial denture) or it can replace all the teeth in an arch (complete denture)…

Preventing Cavities

The two best defenses against tooth decay and gum disease are a healthy, well-balanced diet and good oral hygiene, including daily brushing with fluoride toothpaste, flossing and rinsing. Your body’s own saliva is also an excellent cavity fighter, because it contains special chemicals that rinse away many harmful materials.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have a cavity:
• Unusual sensitivity to hot and cold water or foods.
• A localized pain in your tooth or near the gum line.
• Teeth that change color.

Do you know that 80 percent of the microbial infections in our body are initiated by bacterial growth in form of plaque?

Fact: Do you know that 80 percent of the microbial infections in our body are initiated by bacterial growth in form of plaque? We have always thought that unicellular organisms have no social life! They actually team up, and form collective network called Biofilms. Their structure is much elaborated which enables them to get the nutrients in and the waste out. They are densely packed and can secret toxins. The complex and diverse architecture of biofilms has led to this idea that they are cooperative groups. They cause a number of chronic infections and diseases. The most well-known and studied biofilm bacteria is on teeth and gum, which leads to periodontal disease. Hundreds of microbial plaque colonize in the human mouth, causing tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque is a biofilm on the surfaces of the teeth. The accumulation of microorganisms establishes biofilm that exposes the teeth and gingival tissues to high concentrations of bacterial metabolites, which results in dental disease.

What happens if the plaque is not removed?
Failing to remove plaque can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and eventually to more serious health issues. Plaque that is allowed to remain on teeth can harden into a destructive substance called tartar around the gum line. You can not remove the tartar by brushing; it must be cleaned by your dentist or dental hygienist. The bacteria in plaque and tartar can cause inflammation of the gums, known as gingivitis. This form of gum disease can deteriorate into a more serious condition called periodontitis, which causes bone loss, and if it is left untreated, can lead to teeth loss.
When was the last time you had a dental cleaning?

A professional cleaning by your dentist or hygienist is very important. This simple procedure should be part of your oral health care regimen to prevent teeth decay (cavities), and gum disease. The cleaning or dental prophylaxis needs to be done regularly.

Why is flossing extremely important?

Every time you visit your dentist, you know the one question he is sure to ask, “Have you been flossing regularly?” It is important to understand that brushing alone cannot clean all of the surfaces of each tooth. Each tooth has five surfaces and the toothbrush can only access three of them, so by flossing you are able to reach the areas that normal brushing cannot access.
People might think that flossing does not do anything significant. Obviously, the bacteria in your mouth are very small which the naked eye cannot see. But believe me, they are between your teeth right now. Overnight the bacteria will reproduce to create more than a million cells from the original cell! By proper flossing, you will remove 40% of the sticky bacteria or plaque from your teeth. As you can see in this real radiograph (X-ray), dental decay has developed due to lack of flossing.

Do I have TMJ?

Yes, of course you do have “TMJ” (temporomandibular joint), actually I have two of those : ). People often say “oh, I have TMJ” instead of “TMJ disorder.” TMJ is a joint in our body like our knees. It is somewhat hard to determine why people develop TMJ disorder. TMJ disorder can cause symptoms, such as jaw pain, headache, and restrictions in jaw opening. People with TMJ problem tend to clench and grind their teeth.
If you have experience any of these symptoms please call our dental office to help you treat and alleviate the pain.
