Preventative Dentistry

The professional dental staff at Old Milton Dental believes one of the best ways we can serve you and your family is by teaching preventative dentistry skills and habits. Preventative dentistry is essential to protect your teeth and health from decay, infection, and dental emergencies. Learn what preventative habits you can establish today!

Daily habits are essential to maintain dental health. Your teeth should be brushed a minimum of twice a day. Brushing your teeth removes built up plaque and bacteria, the main cause of tooth decay. Your gums are also stimulated when you brush your teeth, keeping them healthy and clean. It is a good idea to brush your teeth after eating sugary foods or drinks, like candy and soda.

Although it is often forgotten, flossing is equally as crucial as brushing. Although brushing successfully removes damaging plaque, it does not clean as thoroughly and completely as flossing. Flossing removes accumulated plaque in between teeth and other crevices in your mouth. Flossing is an easy way to remove as much plaque as possible.

In addition to establishing healthy personal habits, regular dental visits are crucial to ensure your dental health. Dental hygienists and other professional staff examine your teeth and look for any potential weak areas. If Dr. Mazer or a member of our staff detects a weak spot, we will take preventative measures to keep the tooth healthy and from further decay. Allow us to take care of these problem areas before they become more serious. Semi-annual dental cleanings and check ups are a great way to prevent any serious dental issues.

If it has been six months since your last dental visit, please contact Old Milton Dental. We look forward to helping you and your family on your way towards better dental health!

The Wand!

Have you ever heard a horror story about a patient’s mouth that was not “numbed” before a procedure? One of the most common horror stories coming out of dentist’s offices are about the anesthetic, or “numbing”, shot before a dental procedure is performed. Old Milton Dental uses a new tool that provides anesthetic quickly and is painless! Get ready to read about “The Wand”!

The Wand is a new dental tool that uses great technology to deliver local anesthetic. The delivery of the anesthetic is controlled by an advanced computer technology. The Wand looks like a ballpoint pen, with a tiny needle ejecting out the bottom. The anesthetic is delivered to the patient before the needle touches the gum. The computer controls the amount and speed of the anesthetic to maintain comfort for the patient.

How does this affect you? Most dental patients fear the prick and the sting of anesthetic, even if they have never had a bad experience before. The Wand eliminates these fearful perceptions of a dentist visit. The Wand makes the numbing process entirely painless. The anesthetic is delivered before the needle even touches your gums! All fear and horror stories can be put in the past!

Old Milton places your comfort and satisfaction as our top priority. The Wand guarantees your comfort while being numbed before a dental procedure. You can be confident in our promise of ensuring your comfort while you are in the dentist chair. Explain the process of The Wand to your children who may be scared of coming to the dentist. Visit Old Milton Dental to learn more about The Wand and the comfort and satisfaction we promise!

Digital X-Rays

At Old Milton Dental, we care about your experience in addition to the work we perform. Our office continually seeks for new technology that allows our skilled professional dental staff to provide optimum service without sacrificing your comfort. One of the technologies we use regularly are digital x-rays. This blog entry will give you more insight into our decision to use digital x-rays regularly.

Digital x-rays are simply internal pictures of the mouth. There are two types of digital x-rays, intraoral and extraoral. The purpose for your visit determines which x-rays will be used.

Intraoral x-rays capture very detailed images of a tooth’s structure. The detailed image shows any problematic areas in the tooth. These include cavities, the health of the tooth’s root, as well as monitoring developing teeth. These details enable our professional staff to diagnose and treat specific needs. Intraoral x-rays are the more common of the two types of x-rays.

In contrast, extraoral x-rays take pictures of a larger area of the mouth. These types of x-rays are more common with TMJ or jaw issues. These can be extremely beneficial as they reveal the growth and development between the teeth and the jaw.

The storage of these digitized images are also advantageous. The images are stored on a computer, which is a major benefit that is often overlooked. Once the images are on the computer, the Old Milton Dental staff can view the x-rays in more detail. We can zoom to see all areas of the tooth or oral region. This enhanced image ensures the tooth is diagnosed appropriately. Our patients are also able to see their tooth as the digital x-ray can be seen on the computer or a television screen. Knowing our patients understand the diagnosis and problem with their teeth is critical to Old Milton Dental.

CEREC

The professional dental staff at Old Milton Dental uses the best dental technology available to serve you. Dr. Corey Mazer uses the innovative CEREC 3D technology to create personalized porcelain restorations. This device is one of the most beneficial dental tools and technology you will find in Alpharetta and the greater Atlanta area. Old Milton Dental uses innovative technology to provide you with the finest product and material, all while being time efficient.

CEREC 3D technology enables Dr. Corey Mazer to create dental restorations in Old Milton Dental’s Alpharetta office. CEREC restorations are extremely strong while maintaining an extremely natural appearance. CEREC restorations have demonstrated three times the strength of restorations made in off-site labs. This exceptional durability and strength do not interfere with the natural look and feel of the restorations. Using CEREC technology, Dr. Corey Mazer produces the most aesthetically pleasing all-porcelain crowns. Often porcelain crowns are created with a metal base, which often leaves a dark line where your crown meets your gums. Inlays, onlays, porcelain crowns, and other restorations are created with to be lasting and beautiful.

In addition to producing a great restoration, Dr. Corey Mazer uses CEREC technology to cut your costs and wait time. Your dental restoration can be created and placed in minimal time. Without CEREC technology, your dental impression would need to be sent to an off-site lab, adding unnecessary time and costs for you. Old Milton Dental works to eliminate avoidable costs and wait time by using CEREC technology.

There are relatively few dentists who perform restorations with Cerec 3D technology. Dr. Corey Mazer and his professional staff uses Cerec 3D Technology to provide you with the best dental service available in Alpharetta and the greater Phoenix area. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
