gum damage

  • The Great American Smokeout

    Great American Smokeout badgeI just read a notice in my email list from the American Dental Association about the dangers of tobacco products for dental health (and overall health as well). I thought I’d pass along some of their information and a few great resources for basic information and to help those who need to quit.

  • When Acid Attacks - Part I

    Acidic FruitDentistry has had a lot of success stories in the past few decades. But, also a few failures.

    One of the biggest areas of concern is the steady increase in the effects of acids. Acids can lead to the wearing away of tooth enamel and loss of gum attachment.

    A truly complete discussion of acids and oral health is way beyond the scope of this blog article. I’ll include some references at the end of Part II if you wish to do more reading on the subject (but no, you won’t get extra credit nor have your grade adjusted).

    There are several types of damage to teeth and gums that we often see:

  • When Acid Attacks - Part II

    Girl drinking juice with a strawLast month in my When Acid Attacks - Part I article, I discussed some of the dental problems that excess acid can cause. One additional problem I neglected to bring up last month is the impact of a lower pH on mouth bacteria. As acid increases and pH falls, the growth of acid-producing plaque bacteria is promoted. These bacteria then cause an increase in tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease.

happy patients

I started coming to Dr. Miller in the late 1980s after not going to a dental office for 4 years. It was difficult going back after such a long time. The staff all were so professional and trusting that they put me at ease.

Over the years I have had a number of elective procedures done. All have worked out so well. I am thankful for Dr. Miller's honest evaluation of what needs to be done now and what we can wait to do.

A job change took me away from the Syracuse area, but I thought so highly of the practice that I am still a patient to this day.

Quality dental work you can trust is worth it!
