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

February 7, 2015

451855347While your teeth may not be the first things you think of as you get ready to hit the gym, a recent study provides evidence that your oral health actually should be something you consider alongside your fitness routine. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Glenpool, OK, Dr. Parnam Mohanna and Dr. Dalia Georgy strive to provide their patients with valuable information to keep their smiles healthy and strong, and today we’d like to share the results of this study in hopes that it will benefit you.

Do Athletes Get More Cavities?

A study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports sought to uncover a reason for the higher incidence of cavities in athletes, particularly runners. What they found was surprising. The mouths of the athletes tested were consistently impacted by a diminished pH level, a problem that has been long linked to a higher risk for tooth decay. The lowered pH levels were attributed to a diet high in carbohydrates, primarily from sports drinks and gels as well as nutrition bars. While these are popular staples for runners and other athletes, overconsumption proved potentially harmful to oral health.

Another anomaly was found in saliva levels. Athletes tested following a strenuous workout were found to have decreased levels of saliva in their mouths, an issue that has been known to promote tooth decay and periodontal disease. Saliva is a necessary component of oral health, helping to wash away acid-producing bacteria.

While we’d never suggest that our athletic patients stop working out in favor of protecting their oral health, this study does support a more stringent hygiene routine at home. Also, as always, it is crucial to the continued health of your teeth and gums that you schedule a visit to our office for an exam and professional cleaning at least once every six months.

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body

Exercise is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle, just as are your routine visits to our dental office. If it has been more than six months since your last visit, please contact us today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Georgy and Dr. Mohanna. Our caring, experienced staff looks forward to helping you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile for life. Conveniently located in Glenpool, OK, our practice proudly serves the surrounding areas of Tulsa, Jenks, Bixby, Okmulgee, Sapulpa, Keifer, Mounds, and beyond.

Escape the Daily Grind with Bruxism Treatment & TMJ Therapy in Glenpool, OK

January 7, 2015

178901519The temporomandibular joint is the joint responsible for connecting your lower jaw, or mandible, to your skull. Though powerful and versatile, this tiny joint is actually quite delicate and can be susceptible to inflammation due to injury, clenching of the jaw muscles, malocclusion, or teeth grinding. Involuntary grinding of the teeth, known as bruxism, can put an inordinate amount of pressure on these joints, resulting in TMJ disorder. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Glenpool, OK, Dr. Dalia Georgy and Dr. Parnam Mohanna help patients suffering from TMD and bruxism enjoy pain-free relief and improved oral health.

Benefits of Treating Bruxism and TMJ Disorder

The symptoms that accompany a case of TMD and bruxism vary depending on the patient’s oral health history, general state of physical wellness, behaviors, and the severity of the inflammation in the temporomandibular joint. The most common symptoms of these conditions are:

  • Audible grinding of the teeth or clenching of the jaw while asleep
  • Pain and/or stiffness in the neck, shoulders, and upper back
  • Tenderness in the jaw, particularly near the temples
  • Persistent headaches
  • Teeth that are worn down to reveal the internal tooth structure within
  • Teeth that become flatter and shorter over time
  • Indentations on the sides of the tongue

Fortunately, there is a relatively simple, completely non-invasive way to treat bruxism and TMJ disorder at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry. With a customized oral appliance, we can help you get the relief you need while you sleep. Simply wear your comfortable nightguard – also called an oral splint – at night, and experience freedom from jaw clenching and grinding for good.

Give Your Smile the Care It Deserves

If you currently suffer from the effects of bruxism or TMJ disorder, don’t spend another day in pain and discomfort. Instead, please contact our office today to schedule your consultation with Drs. Georgy and Mohanna at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Glenpool, OK. With a comprehensive range of preventive and general dentistry solutions customized to suit your unique needs, our team can help you find lasting relief from nighttime teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Our family-friendly, state-of-the-art dental practice proudly serves patients from throughout the surrounding areas of Jenks, Bixby, Tulsa, Sapulpa, Okmulgee, Mounds, Keifer, and beyond.

With the many innovations in dental implant technology, it has never been easier or more affordable to permanently replace missing teeth. Unlike dentures or dental bridges, dental implants can last a lifetime, and can be cleaned and maintained just like your natural teeth.

Is This a Dental Emergency? What You Need to Know

August 20, 2014

462039415By its very nature, a dental emergency is typically something that occurs unexpectedly. While you can’t necessarily prepare for an emergency situation that involves your mouth, you can equip yourself with the information and resources you’ll need should this type of problem arise. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Sapulpa, OK, Dr. Parnam Mohanna and Dr. Dalia Georgy provide patients throughout the area with emergency dental services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What is Considered a Dental Emergency?

Knowing what constitutes an emergency is important, and we’re here to help you discern an urgent situation from one that can wait. Remember, we’re always here when you need us; simply call us at (918) 347-5575, remain calm, and keep the following guidelines in mind. These are considered the most common dental emergency situations:

  • Knocked out tooth – Retrieve the tooth by the crown (the part that shows when you smile) and gently rinse it in warm water, taking extreme care to avoid touching the root. Do not remove any tissue that may be attached. If possible, attempt to replace the tooth in its socket, ensuring that it is facing the proper way. If this cannot be done, place the tooth in a container or bag of milk. Water with a pinch of salt works as an alternative if you don’t have any milk on hand. We may be able to save your tooth if you visit our office in a timely manner.
  • Broken or chipped tooth – Rinse the mouth and collect any pieces of tooth you can find. If the area is bleeding, apply steady pressure to the wound with sterile gauze. A cold compress can be used to alleviate swelling and pain against the outside of the mouth.
  • Soft tissue injuries – An injury to the soft tissues of the mouth – including the gums, lips, cheeks, tongue, or palate – should be evaluated by our dentists. Rinse the area with warm, mild salt water and apply a moist gauze pad to control bleeding. Contact us if bleeding is heavy or does not subside within 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Toothache – Though a toothache may not initially seem like a dental emergency, pain in your tooth may signify the presence of an underlying condition that is quite serious, including a root infection or abscess. Rinse the mouth with warm water and attempt to remove anything lodged between the teeth with dental floss. Call us to schedule an evaluation.

If you or a loved one is experiencing a dental emergency, contact our office in Sapulpa, OK and speak to our caring, experienced staff. We look forward to serving you and exceeding your every urgent care need. Our state-of-the-art dental practice proudly serves families from throughout Sapulpa and the surrounding areas, including Tulsa, Bixby, Mounds, Jenks, Keifer, Okmulgee, Glenpool, and beyond.

E4D Same Day Crowns: Beautiful Custom Restorations in Sapulpa, OK

July 18, 2014

Shutterstock Explaining ImplantsDental crowns are among the most commonly used restorative dentistry solutions today. A crown effectively covers the entire surface of a tooth that has been damaged or treated with root canal therapy. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Sapulpa, OK, Dr. Dalia Georgy and Dr. Parnam Mohanna offer a revolutionary restorative solution in the form of E4D same day crowns, improving patient care and experience.

Advantages of E4D Same Day Crowns

At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry, our team believes that everyone deserves to enjoy a gorgeous, strong smile that looks and feels its best. Sometimes, this involves the placement of a dental crown. Crowns can be used to protect a tooth that has been compromised and to provide it with much-needed structural stability. They are also incredibly useful in cosmetic dentistry applications, improving the appearance of a tooth that is misshapen, permanently discolored, cracked, or awkwardly sized in relation to the teeth surrounding it.

While regular crowns require two visits to the dentist’s office and a period of time spent wearing a temporary, E4D crowns are custom-crafted and placed all in one appointment. We will take impressions of your dentition, prepare the tooth, and place the beautiful restoration within a matter of hours, so you don’t have to spend days or weeks without full use of your teeth. You’ll love the way your crown looks and feels, and you can rest assured in the knowledge that your smile is stronger than ever.

Discover the E4D Difference for Yourself

Whether you are currently in need of a new restoration or you have a crown that needs to be replaced, our state-of-the-art practice in Sapulpa, OK is here to help. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment and to find out more about how E4D same day crowns can help you. Drs. Georgy and Mohanna happily serve patients from throughout the surrounding areas as well, including Glenpool, Mounds, Jenks, Keifer, Okmulgee, Bixby, Tulsa, and beyond. We look forward to becoming your partners in your journey toward a healthier, happier smile.

Oral Cancer Screening in Sapulpa, OK: Important Information from Drs. Georgy and Mohanna

June 4, 2014

shutterstock_126406406Oral cancer is responsible for the death of approximately 8,000 men and women in America every year. Though there is no cure for this aggressive disease, early detection and treatment play vital roles in survival statistics. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Sapulpa, OK, Dr. Dalia Georgy and Dr. Parnam Mohanna offer a variety of general dentistry treatments and procedures aimed at keeping your mouth healthy; oral cancer screening is one of them.

The Importance of Oral Cancer Screening

Because the first signs and symptoms associated with oral cancer may be undetectable without specialized screening equipment, it is incredibly important and vital to your overall health that you visit our family-friendly practice twice per year for routine general dentistry checkups. During these visits, we will take the time to assess all surfaces within the oral cavity and perform a thorough cleaning to ensure continued dental health. Though only oral cancer screening at our office can actually determine the presence of a cancerous lesion or cells, there are some things you can keep watch for at home between your visits to our office:

  • Ulcers that bleed or do not go away
  • White or reddish patches inside the mouth or on the lips
  • Lumps or thicker areas on the gums, tongue, inner cheeks, or floor or roof of the mouth
  • Pain or difficulty when speaking, swallowing, eating, or opening the mouth
  • Any unexplained sensation, such as tingling, numbness, or pain

Because many of these symptoms may indicate an issue other than oral cancer, it is vital that you have any unusual symptom assessed by our doctors. We will always take the time to explain to you anything that we may find during your screening, as well as the next steps in your treatment process.

Schedule Your Visit Today

Has it been more than six months since your last visit to the dental office of Dr. Mohanna and Dr. Georgy for a checkup? If so, please contact our practice today to schedule your next appointment. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Sapulpa, OK, we happily welcome patients from throughout the surrounding areas of Mounds, Bixby, Glenpool, Keifer, Okmulgee, Tulsa, Jenks, and beyond. We can’t wait to show you what a difference our commitment to your oral health and overall wellness can make for you.

Cosmetic Gum Contouring: Reveal Your Most Beautiful Smile at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry

May 18, 2014

shutterstock_155769509Though straight, white teeth are certainly integral components of a beautiful smile, the shape of your gum line can also dramatically impact its overall appearance. Patients whose gum line is too low or unbalanced often find that they feel hesitant to show off their smile. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Sapulpa, OK, our team offers a comprehensive array of cosmetic dentistry solutions to bring your most attractive smile to light, including gum contouring.

Laser Gum Reshaping in Sapulpa, OK

Also called cosmetic gum reshaping, gum contouring is a procedure that is capable of transforming the appearance of your smile in just one procedure. Drs. Georgy and Mohanna perform this common cosmetic service using the advanced technology afforded by a precision laser. Rather than using a scalpel and sutures to change the size and shape of your gum line, we contour its edges using highly sophisticated equipment that actually shortens recovery time and improves patient comfort.

When a patient has too much gum tissue covering the teeth, they can feel self-conscious about showing off their smile. An excessively gummy smile is a common complaint, but our team can help. Just enough of the gum tissue is removed to reveal the bright, healthy teeth beneath, allowing patients who have hidden their smile for years to finally share it with friends, family, and coworkers with confidence.

Laser gum recontouring at Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry can also help balance a gum line that is uneven or oddly shaped. With an extensive selection of cosmetic dentistry services available, our practice invites you to experience the full benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile.

Enjoy a Newly Rejuvenated Smile

Have you ever felt that your teeth look too short, but you weren’t sure if there was anything that could be done to improve their appearance? Cosmetic gum reshaping may be able to help. Contact our office in Sapulpa, OK today and schedule your consultation with Dr. Mohanna and Dr. Georgy. We can’t wait to show you how much of an impact just one procedure can have on the appearance of your smile. Our conveniently located office warmly welcomes patients from Sapulpa and the surrounding areas, including Jenks, Glenpool, Mounds, Tulsa, Okmulgee, Keifer, and beyond.

Achieve a Radiant, Straight Smile with Invisalign in Sapulpa, OK

April 16, 2014

Shutterstock InvisalignStraight, healthy teeth are considered to be the fundamental building blocks of an attractive, confident smile, but not everyone is born with teeth that are properly aligned. Adults and adolescents in particular may feel insecure about their crooked teeth, but hesitate to seek orthodontic treatment and traditional metal braces. At Complete Cosmetic Care Dentistry in Sapulpa, OK, Dr. Parnam Mohanna and Dr. Dalia Georgy offer a preferred alternative to metal brackets and wires. Invisalign clear aligners allow you to enjoy the benefits of straighter teeth in a way that suits your lifestyle.

Will Invisalign Work For Me?

A one-on-one consultation with Drs. Georgy and Mohanna will help determine if Invisalign clear braces are the right choice for your individual circumstances. Invisalign has been proven to correct a variety of common alignment flaws, including mild to moderate crowding, gaps, overbite, crossbite, underbite, overjet, and open bites. In some cases of severe misalignment, alternative orthodontic treatment may be deemed necessary. Our experienced doctors will assess your teeth, gums, and jaw before continuing with treatment planning, answering any questions you may have regarding the Invisalign process along the way.

Why Choose Invisalign?

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners are made of smooth, comfortable plastic that is molded specifically to match your unique dentition. The aligners are removable for cleaning and ease of eating, and are virtually invisible to those around you. You can feel free to smile in complete confidence while you undergo your orthodontic treatment, enjoying the full benefits of straighter teeth after as little as six to 18 months.

Schedule Your Appointment Today

If you are interested in learning more about Invisalign treatment in Sapulpa, OK, contact our office today and schedule your initial consultation with Drs. Georgy and Mohanna. From our conveniently located, family-friendly dental practice, we happily serve patients from Jenks, Okmulgee, Tulsa, Glenpool, Mounds, Keifer, and nearby areas.
