We had so much fun at our On The Dunes Summer Party. This year our team from Goldstein Dental Group, Jaffe Dental Group, and Oakwood Dental Group came together for a fun and relaxing group outing. It is so enjoyable to relax, celebrate, and spend time with our co-workers. We have such an incredible team! We played Fowling, which is similar to bowling but with a football at On the Dunes Bar and Grill. What a blast! We also were able to feast on some great food. The get together was a little treat to thank our staff for the exceptional work they do each and every day at the office. It does not go unnoticed.
Brushing your teeth is essential for proper oral hygiene. Skipping or doing a half hazard job will lead to poor oral health and possibly affect your general health. This can lead to tooth decay which can lead to tooth loss. You must brush your teeth and floss properly every day if you want strong teeth and a healthy mouth.
Complications of Not Brushing Properly
Plaque is a yellow film produced by bacteria in your mouth. It coats the teeth and deteriorates the enamel that protects your teeth. Plaque build-up leads to cavities, infection, and possible tooth loss if not treated. Plaque build-up also causes gum disease called gingivitis. Gingivitis can eventually turn into periodontitis, a bone infection in the bones that support the teeth.
You know the routine: brush every morning and night and floss daily. But that is not always enough to ensure your oral health is at its best. Common mistakes like brushing too hard, not brushing long enough, or even dietary choices can affect your oral health.[Read more…] about Common Oral Care Oversights

Even though we are currently living in an extremely uncertain time, what can be certain is that you still should visit your dentist. After stopping non-urgent visits due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ADA (American Dental Association) along with the CDC officially recommend that dental teams open and serve patients, as long as all guidelines are followed.
We know you can’t wear a mask during your exam, but it is important that you wear it upon arrival to our office, monitor your own symptoms, let us know ahead of time if you may have been exposed to COVID-19 so we can reschedule your visit, and follow all social distancing and mask wearing measures outside of your visit. This limits your exposure to COVID-19, keeping you and our dental team safe.
In turn, our team has added extra safety precautions to make sure you and our team is safe. We are utilizing HEPA Filters with Ionizers, in order to reduce any sort of impurities during your visit. Moreover, we have gone above and beyond the recommended protocols to further reduce the risk of infection for you and our staff.
Keeping up with your dental health is important for your overall health, so we want you to feel comfortable visiting our office. Read about some of our many safety measures and contact us to make an appointment with Jaffe Dental Group. We look forward to your visit.
While it may get overlooked, oral health is just as important and intertwines with your physical and mental health. Your mouth is the first step in the digestive system. Without a healthy mouth, you will most likely see negative impacts on your overall health.
The health of one’s teeth and mouth are vital for your wellbeing. Good oral health allows for one to smile, speak, show emotion, smell, taste, and more. Without a good oral hygiene routine, one may feel insecure about smiling and refuse to show any emotion that involves expression of the mouth. This is damaging to one’s self-esteem and self-image, making oral health incredibly important for one’s own mental health.
If oral health is neglected, there may be other medical repercussions. Poor oral health can result in periodontal diseases, tooth decay, dry mouth, and other painful consequences. Poor oral health can also impact other parts of your body. Long term issues with oral health and care can lead to heart disease and other chronic illnesses. This is due to the build-up of bacteria that can get into the bloodstream and travel to your heart or other parts of the body, increasing the chance of infection.
It is extremely vital to maintain good oral health, as it is directly tied to your overall health. With good oral health comes good general health, so it is imperative that you mind your own oral hygiene and habits and see us regularly.
