Flossing Your Teeth Is Easy If You Do It Right

September 11, 2015

Filed under: General Dentistry — Tags: , , , — tmichalski @ 1:40 pm

Flossing your teeth is necessary and should be practiced correctly.Many people don’t really think much of flossing these days. They often believe that brushing alone will keep their mouths healthy, but this isn’t true. Brushing helps keep oral health in good standing, but it can’t do the job alone. Flossing is just as vital as brushing. It helps keep the spaces between your teeth free of harmful bacteria, food particles and more. When a patient chooses not to floss their teeth, they’re practically inviting bacteria to multiply and throw a party in your mouth. Flossing helps break up this party for good and keeps those hard-to-reach areas for toothbrushes clean.

There’s no need to feel embarrassed if you’re unsure of the proper way to floss your teeth. It’s never too late to learn, and now is a great time. True, you won’t experience a disease overnight if you don’t floss your teeth, but if it becomes habit then you will end up with a dental problem on your hands. Our Rocky Hill, CT office has plenty of additional dental services that can help keep your oral health operating at maximum efficiency. Dr. Michalski is the dentist Rocky Hill, CT residents can trust to keep their oral health in excellent standing.

Rocky Hill, CT cosmetic dentist, Thaddeus S. Michalski, focuses on the oral health and well-being of each of his patients. When preventive, restorative and cosmetic dental services blend to achieve a perfectly healthy and good-looking smile, makeover goals are fully met and Dr. Michalski couldn’t be more pleased. In fact, his extensive training and experience all aim for great smiles that last a lifetime.

Are you ready for your  Rock Hill, CT smile makeover?

You can be if you visit Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski and his talented staff.  Dr. MIchalski possesses  the finest technical skill and artistry in the field of dentistry. His college, dental school and continuing education background reinforce his understanding that a smile makeover starts with healthy teeth and gums. So, when an individual seeks his help in changing how his or her smile looks, Dr. MIchalski begins with the basics.

Dr. MIchalski performs a routine oral exam on each patient who comes through his doors. The check-up includes:

  • digital x-rays and other imaging as warranted
  • visual inspection of the mouth to check for cavities, bite and alignment, gum disease and oral cancer
  • periodontal probing to assess gum health

Dr. Michalski writes a treatment plan to include necessary procedures to bring the mouth to complete health. That being done, he and the patient discuss aesthetic goals for a  renewed, confident smile.

A healthy smile can look as good as it feels

Your summer smile makeover may involve several cosmetic dental services, depending on the aesthetic goals you and your Rocky Hill cosmetic dentist wish to achieve. Services include the finest materials, excellent craftsmanship and precision aesthetics. Art and science combine for the final product–your new smile!

Porcelain veneers are super-thin, tooth-shaped porcelain covers. They mask tooth imperfections such as dark discolorations, cracks, odd contours and chips Utilizing conventional veneers which require etching of the tooth surface or “no-prep” Lumineers, Dr. Michalski customizes an even, white smile that lasts for years with good hygiene and dental care.

Often combined with veneers, at-home teeth whitening safely brightens dingy teeth to a dazzling 8 shades whiter. Applied with custom-made trays, professional grade whitening gels power out stains over the course of 2 weeks in the privacy of the patient’s home.

In addition, Dr. Michalski changes the look of one or more teeth with composite resin bonding. This simple, quick improvement smoothes imperfections such as chips, gaps and crowding for a look that’s natural–only better. Dr. MIchalsky often combines bonding with gum recontouring, a quick, safe treatment which removes excess gum tissue to expose more healthy enamel.

Invisalign clear braces correct bite and alignment issues using invisible custom aligners designed to move teeth into better positions. Taking 9 to 15 months to complete, an Invisalign smile avoids the hygiene and aesthetic issues of traditional orthodontic treatment while making crooked teeth over into straight, stunning smiles. Start Invisalign now in the summer, and be ready for that graduation or wedding next year!

Does a summer smile makeover in Rock Hill sound right to you?

Straighten Your Teeth without Braces: Invisalign in Rocky Hill, CT

May 10, 2015

487780771If your teeth are crooked, crowded, oddly spaced, or otherwise improperly aligned, you understand what an impact the status of your smile can have on your daily life. For adults and teens seeking orthodontic treatment, the thought of spending years in traditional metal braces simply isn’t an appealing option. At the Rocky Hill, CT dental office of Dr. Thaddeus S. Michalski, individuals looking for an alternative to metal braces are invited to explore the possibilities afforded by Invisalign.

Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners

The most frequently cited advantage of Invisalign over regular braces is their appearance. The clear acrylic trays are virtually invisible when you smile, allowing you to show off your teeth even as they are gradually shifted into their proper positions. This is an especially attractive feature for polished professionals and image-conscious teens seeking a less conspicuous solution to crooked teeth. Invisalign is also capable of correcting open bites, crossbite, underbite, overbite, and gaps between teeth.

Aside from their obvious aesthetic appeal, Invisalign clear aligners are also exceptionally comfortable as compared to conventional braces. There are no metal wires or brackets to irritate the inner lining of the cheeks and lips, only smooth plastic that is custom-formed to the shape of your teeth. In addition, Invisalign trays are easily removed for eating and home hygiene. Dr. Michalski’s patients love the versatility and freedom of Invisalign as much as they do their clear composition.

Schedule Your Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation

Your journey toward straighter teeth and a more confident, attractive smile begins with a consultation at our Rocky Hill, CT dental office. Contact us today to schedule yours, and see what a difference Invisalign can make in your appearance, your oral health, and your life. We sincerely look forward to providing you with exceptional dental care in an environment that feels like home. Our family-friendly dental office warmly welcomes patients from Rocky Hill, Wethersfield, Berlin, Hartford, Newington, Cromwell, and more.

The Picture-Perfect Smile You Deserve with Porcelain Veneers in Rocky Hill, CT

April 10, 2015

492500957When you smile, do you feel confident in your appearance? Perhaps your teeth are cracked, crooked, or chipped, and you prefer to smile with your lips closed in photographs. If so, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans feel self-conscious about their teeth, choosing to hide their smiles rather than share them with the world. At the office of Thomas S. Michalski, DMD, men and women from Rocky Hill, CT are invited to explore their cosmetic dentistry options, including porcelain veneers.

Transforming Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Porcelain veneers are one of the most commonly utilized cosmetic dentistry treatments for patients seeking a completely revitalized smile. This is due, in large part, to their versatility and lifelike quality. Crafted of high-grade dental porcelain, veneers are made to look and feel like natural teeth. In fact, the tooth-colored porcelain used to create veneers even reflects light in the same way that tooth enamel does, ensuring a completely natural-looking and luminous smile.

Porcelain veneers are capable of correcting a wide variety of aesthetic flaws in as few as two visits to our Rocky Hill, CT cosmetic dentistry office. These include:

  • Deep staining that does not respond well to teeth whitening efforts
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Unevenly spaced teeth or crowding
  • Teeth that appear too small or misshapen
  • Cracks, chips, and fractures

When bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, porcelain veneers give your smile an instant makeover. You’ll love the improved sense of confidence that comes with the ability to smile openly and express yourself freely. A consultation with Dr. Michalski will help determine which cosmetic dentistry solution is ideal for you.

How Does Your Workout Affect Your Smile? Oral Health for Athletes

February 6, 2015

451855347Working out regularly is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, but have you ever wondered how your fitness regimen might be impacting the health of your teeth and gums? If not, you’re not alone. The effects of exercise on the mouth are still under research, but a recent study has shown us that working out – running, in particularly – can actually influence our oral health. At the Rocky Hill, CT dental office of Thaddeus S. Michalski, DMD, Dr. Michalski and his team strive to provide our patients with valuable information regarding oral health and wellness on a daily basis. Today, we’d like to discuss athletes and oral health.

Do Athletes Get More Cavities?

In a study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports, a team of German researchers found that runners had more cases of tooth erosion than their non-athlete counterparts. The underlying cause of this potentially serious issue is twofold: a high-carb diet and diminished salivary flow.

First, a diet that is high in carbohydrates can drastically reduce the pH level within the mouth, leading to a higher incidence of tooth decay. When the pH level dips below 5.5, the mouth becomes an environment that is more susceptible to dental caries.

Secondly, a decrease in saliva can lead to tooth decay and even increase the risk of periodontal disease. This is because your saliva actively washes away acid-causing bacteria. Without sufficient saliva, bacteria accumulate more rapidly on the teeth and along the gum line. The lack of saliva in the athletes tested was attributed to mouth breathing while training.

Fortunately, improving your oral health doesn’t necessarily mean altering your exercise routine. Simply visit Dr. Michalski and his team in Rocky Hill, CT twice per year (or more frequently if advised) and follow a stringent home hygiene routine to protect your teeth and gums from damage.

Schedule Your Visit Today

If you or someone you love is an avid runner or athlete and you’d like to learn more about how exercise affects oral health, please don’t hesitate to call us today. Our knowledgeable team of dental health experts in Rocky Hill, CT is standing by; we are always ready to answer your questions and provide you with the care you need to achieve and maintain optimal oral health. Our warm, family-friendly dental practice in Rocky Hill, CT also proudly serves patients from throughout the surrounding areas, including Hartford, Cromwell, Berlin, Newington, Wethersfield, and beyond.
