There Are New Alternatives For Gum Disease Treatment – By Dr. Roman Shlafer, DDS, PLLC – Holistic Dentist, Biological Dentist, Pain-Free Dentist, Mercury-Free Dentist, Laser Dentist, Cosmetic Dentist – Farmington, Detroit, Livonia, Michigan


PerioLase is the latest laser treatment for gum disease. What is laser gum treatment? Laser Periodontal Therapy™ utilizing PerioLase is an advanced technique that Dr.Shlafer uses to treat periodontal disease, saving many teeth that had been previously considered hopeless.

A laser light is used to gently remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gum pocket. This allows the body to heal naturally so that the gum pockets improve and the teeth become more stable. The Laser Periodontal Therapy™ is a wonderful treatment to bring patients back to a healthier state.

There are dramatic patient benefits:

Significantly less traumatic, yet highly effective alternative to traditional “cut and sew” gum surgery.

With no cutting of the gum tissue with a scalpel and no stitches, it means an easy recovery with minimal bleeding and very little time off work.

This treatment option preserves your gum tissue, rather than cutting it away like traditional surgery.

It reduces root exposure and sensitivity.

It reduces infection.

The cost is the same as traditional surgery and covered by most insurance plans.

Who Is A Candidate For This Therapy?

Anyone that has moderate to severe gum disease is a candidate. These are patients with gum pockets of 5mm or greater and bone loss.

Who Can Perform This Procedure?

Only specially trained dentists can provide PerioLase. This requires licensure from the FDA and certification from the Institute for Advanced Laser Technology. Dr.Shlafer is one of the first dentists in America to have this distinction.

The Procedure:

After measuring the bone loss, a tiny laser fiber (about the thickness of three hairs) is inserted between the teeth and gums. The infection is gently cleared away leaving healthy newly sterilized tissues.

Because there is no cutting or stitches, people don’t experience the pain and bleeding associated with traditional gum surgery. This impact for treating gum disease is similar to that of Lasik laser surgery for eyes.

This is gum therapy that you don’t have to fear……………call for a complimentary evaluation to see if you are a candidate for the revolutionary PerioLase Laser Perio Therapy - (248) 918-4205 - www.romanshlaferdds.com

How To Eliminate Tooth Decay Naturally - By Dr. Alex Shvartsman, DDS, MAGD – Holistic Dentist, Biological Dentist, Biomimetic Dentist, Laser Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentist, Pain-Free Dentist, Ozone Dentist – Smithtown, Hauppauge, Commack, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York


  To answer this question we need to go back…back in time.   You may not realize this, but tooth decay was virtually nonexistent 10,000 years ago.  In fact, tooth decay is a relatively modern disease when we look at the 2 million years humans have been living and evolving on this planet.  Tooth decay as well as many other diseases are what used to be called “diseases of civilization” until it became politically incorrect.  However, it is a very fitting name and it includes cardio-vascular disease, strokes, heart attacks, many cancer, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, food allergies, and autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Alzhiemer’s, multiple sclerosis, vetiligo, psoriasis, etc.

     Approximately10,000 years ago humans began transitioning form living as hunter-gatherers to farming.  Agriculture has turned out to be a double edge sword. It allowed humans to develop civilization and technology at the expense of our health.  Today at the highest point of human civilization and technological achievement we are sicker than we have ever been before and it is going to get worse!  We went form a diet that we evolved to eat for 2 million years, a diet that gave us our large and impressive brain, to a diet that in the short 10,000 years of agriculture and processed foods that is full of foods that are foreign to our metabolism.  

 We evolved eating a diet of meat, fish, poultry (and the fat that came along with these animals) and seasonal veggies and fruit.  Skeletons of our ancestors showed perfectly straight teeth with zero cavities.  These skeletons also showed people with strong robust bones with muscle insertions similar to today’s top athletes. Of the little over 200 remaining pockets of hunter gatherers left today none of these people show any signs of tooth decay or any other disease of civilization. 

     Our agricultural diet is full of foods that we are not designed to eat. These foods include grains, legumes, dairy, plant oils and exorbitant levels of fructose found in processed food and unnaturally sweet fruit that are available to us year round.  The unnaturally enormous levels of carbohydrates as well as antinutrients and toxins found in these “evolutionarily foreign” foods are making us sicker and sicker. 

     Grains and legumes are the seeds of plants. Since plants have no claws, teeth or legs the only defense against their seeds being eaten is biologic chemical warfare: toxins and antinutrients. Enough of these chemicals survive heating and digestion to wreak havoc on our health.  Dairy is also an unnatural food.  We are the only mammals on this planet that drink the milk of other mammals into adult hood.  Milk makes babies grow and cow babies need to grow FAST! Not only is milk loaded with proteins that are toxic and allergic to humans, it is full of natural (and sometimes unnatural) growth hormones.   Plant oils are loaded with omega 6 fatty acids that are pro-inflammatory and unnatural to our diet. Fruits have been bred to be large and sweet and are now available all year and together with High Fructose Corn Syrup found in everything form ketchup to soda are overloading our liver with fructose and destroying our health and teeth.

     So if you want to stop cavities and cure yourself form “diseases of civilization”, begin eating and moving like our Paleolithic ancestors did. For further reading on this subject I encourage you to read: The Paleolithic Solution by Robb Wolf, The New Evolution Diet by Arthur DeVaney, The Paleo Diet (2010 edition) by Lauren Cordain and Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes.  Visit www.Archevore.com and real the blog form the earliest entries to the present.  I wish you all great health!

The Pain-Free Approach To Treating Dental Phobia – By Dr. Alex Shvartsman, DDS, MAGD – Holistic Dentist, Biological Dentist, Biomimetic Dentist, Laser Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentist, Pain-Free Dentist, Ozone Dentist – Smithtown, Hauppauge, Commack, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York


Dr. Shvartsman of Smithtown, Long Island focuses on treating people wiyh dental phobia.  The entire staff is comitted to patient comfort.

     Research published in the latest issue of the British Dental Journal suggests that people with severe dental phobia may be able to overcome their anxieties with a single session of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).   Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the concept that changing negative thinking patterns and self-defeating behaviors can have a powerful effect on the patient's emotions.  

  CBT is a structured therapy, which involves a partnership between the client and therapist. Together with the therapist, clients examine all elements that maintain a problem, including their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. 
 

     A survey on adult dental health published earlier this year by the NHS Information Centre suggests that as much as 12 per cent of people may experience extreme dental anxiety.  60 patients who relied on intravenous sedation before they were able to undergo dental treatment were surveyed.  The study concluded that the benefits were of such significance that the authorst of the study advise dental providers to implement this approach now rather than wait for the results of further research. 

     “Dental phobia is a serious problem because it deters some people from ever going to the dentist, except when they are in severe pain,” Prof Damien Walmsley, scientific advisor to the British Dental Association, said. “At this stage, they may require more invasive treatment than might be the case if they went to the dentist regularly. Sadly, this cycle of anxiety, non-attendance and pain is often repeated in the children of those with dental phobia, perpetuating the problem and feeding another generation of oral health problems.”
 

     The benefits of CBT for severe dental phobia appear to endure over time, the authors of the study, who work at the Sheffield Health & Social Care NHS Foundation Trust and Heart of Birmingham Teaching 
 
     The initialgroup 60 patients had all attended a specialist dental clinic in Sheffield for people with severe dental phobia, Similar to State of the Art Comfort Dentistry in Smithtown, NY. Half the group were offered CBT, of which 21 accepted the treatment. Twenty of these went on to have dental treatment without having to be sedated. An audit of these patients a decade later found that of the 19 patients who had had CBT and could be located, none had returned to sedation in the intervening ten-year period.
