Fast Forward to Straight Teeth with Propel

image001 1

If you're looking for a discrete and fast way to straighten teeth, then ask Dr. Mason if Invisalign® and Propel are right for you. Dr. Mason has years of experience in using this innovative technology to gradually straighten teeth. Typically, treatment takes about a year. With Propel, the timeline accelerates.

Invisalign® employs a series of comfortable, removable, transparent aligners to gradually straighten your teeth.

If you want to fix misaligned teeth, but are put off by the thought of wearing traditional metal braces, call our office today to schedule your complimentary Invisalign consultation.

New Technology Aids in Detecting Early Signs of Oral Cancer

Identafi Oral Cancer Screening web

Technology has improved the quality of dental care, allowing us to detect problems early when treatment is most effective. Dr. Mason recently updated her technology to include the Identafi® system. This technology is on the front line of detection, helping us see the signs and symptoms of oral cancer before they're visible to the naked eye. The device helps us identify the biochemical and morphological changes in the cells of your mouth, throat, tongue, and tonsils.

Each day, about 132 Americans are diagnosed with mouth cancer, according to the Oral Cancer Foundation. One person dies from oral cancer every hour of every day. Worldwide the problem is far greater, with more than 640,000 new diagnoses every year. The American Cancer Society estimates that oral cancer strikes tens of thousands of people each year, and only 56% of those diagnosed survive for more than five years. Early detection is vital to surviving oral cancer.

Protect Your Teeth with a Custom Mouth Guard

Did you know that 5 million teeth are knocked out each year during sports activities? Studies show that if you're involved in a contact sport and you aren't wearing a mouth guard, you're 60 times more likely to sustain a dental injury. It's painful, it's expensive and it can ruin a fun game season!

Protect Your Teeth with a Custom Mouth Guard!

Dr. Chelsea Mason Dental specializes in creating professional-grade mouth guards that protect your teeth and improve your performance in the game. Our custom mouthpieces offer many advantages over stock or “boil and bite” guards sold by sporting goods stores:
  • Superior protection
  • Increased durability
  • Improved comfort and less interference with breathing and speaking. This ensures you actually wear your mouth guard at all times.
We truly believe that you and your loved ones deserve the same protection enjoyed by professional athletes. Call us today at (989) 686-6110 to schedule your consultation!

A custom mouth guard may be fully or partially covered by your dental plan.

Act Now to Use Your 2017 FSA/HSA Funds

It’s amazing to think that the end of 2017 is only a few weeks away! Thanks to all of our patients, it's been a wonderful year. As the year closes, Dr. Mason reminds everyone to check their Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) balances. If you have unused funds, now is a great time to move ahead with treatment. These accounts will cover orthodontic treatment, such as Invisalign® .

Pick the Right Snacks to Protect Your Teeth

PRO 8000 black 1200x1200

Stock up on healthy treats to step up your game when it comes to lunches and after-school snacks. While you're getting the kids ready for school, don't forget to click here to visit the Dr. Chelsea Mason Dental Facebook page and enter to win an Oral-B Genius Toothbrush

Healthy treats don't have to be boring.

Fresh citrus – oranges, grapefruit, tangerines – brighten up your taste buds. Melons, pineapples, and pears all satisfy a sweet tooth. In the winter, canned fruits in natural juices are a terrific alternative to fresh fruits. Broccoli, celery, carrots, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and nuts each pack a hearty crunch in every season.

If you're thirsty, skip the sugary sports drinks and sodas. Instead, enjoy the refreshing flavor of unsweetened fruit and vegetable juices.

If your family doesn't think fruits and vegetables are snacks, you still have plenty of low-sugar options. Stock up on plain bagels, unsweetened cereals, unbuttered popcorn, baked tortilla chips, low-salt pretzels, and plain crackers. Low or non-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese all offer nutrition and flavor without compromising your oral health.

No matter how healthy you eat, nothing replaces brushing and flossing for protecting your oral health. The Oral-B Genius toothbrush helps you brush better by offering a pressure sensor that alerts when you brush too hard; a rounded brush head similar to dental tools; and position detection technology to let you know you missed a spot.
