Midtown Manhattan Dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha Specializes in Root Canals and Other Dental Procedures

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2010

Midtown Manhattan DentistMidtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha can perform root canal to repair and save damaged teeth. Root canal is necessary when a tooth’s nerve tissue or pulp becomes damaged or infected. Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha can treat root canal and prevent the buildup of bacteria and decayed debris inside an infected tooth. If you do not get immediate dental treatment for an infected tooth, an abscess can form. An abscess is a painful, pus-filled swelling that develops at the end of the infected root canal. Without dental treatment from a top dentist like Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha, an infection in the tooth can lead to:

Painful swelling that can spread to the rest of the mouth, face, neck, or head

Bone loss in the jaw around the tip of the root

Pus can start to drain from the tooth into the mouth, jaw, or cheek.

Deep tooth decay can lead to irritation of a tooth’s nerve, pulp, or surrounding gum. Midtown Manhattan dentist Dr. Yelena Simkha can treat tooth decay and prevent or treat root canal infections.

Botox Solution for TMJ at Midtown Manhattan Dentist Office NYC

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

TMJ Dentist Midtown ManhattanAn innovative and effective treatment for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is here!  Botox® can ease painful muscle cramping, as well as clenching & grinding of the patient’s teeth.  These common symptoms associated with TMJ  may benefit from the injection of Botox®.  Dental patients suffering from TMJ who have received this treatment have reported amazing results with some patients even getting instantaneous relief.

In cases in which the TMJ is brought on by the presence of muscle spasms the Botox® procedure has been extremely effective in bringing relief to dental patients.  The Botox® treatment also provides an atmosphere in which other non-invasive dental treatments can work more effectively.

Botox® has the ability to relax muscles.  This is a great help to patients experiencing TMJ because their muscles are so tight.  TMJ can be better approached once the muscles are relaxed, allowing for other dental treatments to be performed.

Botox® dental treatments are non-surgical.  The Botox® is injected into the jaw muscle.  The procedure is quick and easy and the recovery time is very short.  Botox® treatment has no harmful side effects to the dental patient.

If you are someone you know is suffering from TMJ, make a dental appointment with Dr. Simkha.  Call Prestige Dental today at (212) 683-4330.  To get more dental tips and to find out how to keep your teeth looking great, be sure to check the Dental 5 Star blog regularly.  If you would like to have that great smile that you’ve always dreamed of, call Dr. Simkha at Prestige Dental or visit us online at http://dental5star.com to find out more information about Invisalign, dental veneers and many other dental procedures that can help give you that winning smile!

Midtown Manhattan Dentist: Dental Visits May Reduce Heart Disease in Women Says Oral Hygiene Study at UC Berkeley

Regular visits to dentist can pay off for women in several ways.  In addition to having beautiful looking teeth and a great smile, women who visit the dentist regularly also may have less heart problems.  A new dental study by UC Berkeley’s School of Public Health claims that women who make regular visits to a dentist and practice good oral hygiene reduce the risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems by 33%.

The dental study examined men and women who visited a dentist during the previous two years compared with men and women who had not visited the dentist.

Researchers found a correlation between women who visited the dentist and women who did not have a visit to the dentist.  There was no such benefit found for men who visited the dentist and those who did not visit the dentist.   The dental study suggested that estrogen in women helped to prevent heart disease.

There have been several studies linking dental care and cardiovascular disease, but this study boasts that it is the first study to show that general dental care can lead to a reduction in heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular problems.

This dental longitudinal study followed the same people over time.  Subjects were studied over time and were categorized based on whether they had visited the dentist and whether or not they experienced heart problems.

Men and women who would like to make a dental appointment with Dr. Simkha can do so by calling Prestige Dental today at (212) 683-4330.  To get more dental tips and to find out how to keep your teeth looking great, be sure to check the Dental 5 Star blog regularly.  If you would like to have that great smile that you’ve always dreamed of, call Dr. Simkha at Prestige Dental or visit us online at http://dental5star.com to find out more information about Invisalign, dental veneers and many other dental procedures that can help give you that winning smile!
