For years, dentists and dental/medical researchers have posited a potential link between periodontal disease and other systemic and chronic illnesses including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Dental practitioners have increased emphasis on preventive screenings and treatment to maintain oral health, but some estimates indicate that upwards of 70% of U.S. adults have some form of periodontal (gum) disease. According to two recent studies, the severe form of gum disease may have an even more concrete connection to heart disease, and tooth loss caused by periodontal disease may just be the most likely indicator of heart disease related to gum health. Find out more below.

When braces were first offered, all orthodontic work was considered cosmetic dentistry. As years passed, correcting certain malocclusions (dental misalignments) was considered necessary. This included especially problematic over, under, and crossbite that impeded natural speech and chewing capabilities. Eventually, dentists noticed that patients with straighter teeth tended to have healthier smiles and encounter fewer problems with tooth decay. At this point, traditional braces were considered non-cosmetic. It’s no secret that straighter teeth look better, but the surprising truth is that they are actually healthier. Call the dentist Fort Lauderdale residents rely on, Kodish Dental Group, to find out more about orthodontic treatments to straighten out your smile.

With all the time and effort you put into maintaining fantastic oral health it seems unfair that your teeth wouldn’t reflect those efforts, but no matter how well we care for our teeth acidic foods, more than 400 common medications, and even aging can cause them to yellow or appear gray over time. You invest countless hours each year in caring for your teeth, isn’t it time for your smile to look as good as it feels? Call Kodish Dental Group in Fort Lauderdale, FL to schedule your Zoom! whitening appointment today, and leave with a brilliant smile in just one visit.

Laser Whitening from Your Fort Lauderdale Dentist
Laser whitening is an in-office treatment that involves applying whitening gel to the teeth, and using a laser to catalyze the chemical reaction that removes stains from teeth. The chemical reaction caused by the laser usually causes bubbling or foaming as the gel penetrates the enamel removing deep-set stains. After the laser is applied to each tooth to speed whitening time, the gel will remain on teeth for a short period of time before being removed to reveal your brilliant, flawless smile.
Zoom! Whitening Takes Teeth from Dull to Brilliant in About an Hour
Zoom! whitening works in much the same way that laser whitening works. Rather than applying a laser to catalyze the reaction between tooth and bleaching agent, Zoom! treatment utilizes a special, ultra-violet light. After the gel is placed on your teeth, the light will be set to advance the whitening process for about an hour. After treatment with Zoom! patients notice results up to 10 shades lighter in just one visit. Zoom! is one of the most effective teeth whitening treatments on the market for brilliant whitening results in a single appointment.
At-Home Whitening With Professional Grade Results
For patients who prefer to whiten teeth gradually or who would rather whiten at home, we recommend allowing us to create customized application trays to fit your teeth. Regular over the counter trays will not fit as snugly allowing the whitening agent to affect soft tissue, and exposure to oxygen makes the agent less effective. Our customized trays will seal tightly to ensure optimal treatment, and the professional grade bleaching gel we provide will whiten much more effectively than traditional over the counter whitening strips and gels.
