Protect Your Teeth with a Custom Mouth Guard

Screen Shot 2018 05 16 at 8.48.16 AM

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

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.

Regular Dental Visits are a Key Part of Fighting Cancer

A twice-a-year dental cleaning could save your life. During routine visits, we do more than clean your teeth and check for cavities. We also conduct a thorough oral cancer screening at every cleaning. We do this because the American Dental Association estimates that nearly 50,000 people in 2017 will be diagnosed with oral cancer and cancers of the throat, tonsils, and back of the tongue.

As with most cancers, treatment is most effective in the early stages of the disease. Visiting the dentist twice a year is one key to early detection.

Some risk factors linked to oral cancer are outside your control. Men are more likely than women to develop oral cancer. Most people develop oral cancer after age 55.

Other factors are within your control. Heavy drinking and tobacco use are strongly linked to oral cancer. This includes cigarettes, cigars, pipes, chewing tobacco and e-cigarettes. The sexually-transmitted disease, Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), also is linked to head and neck cancer. Using sunscreen and eating a healthy diet reduce your overall risk of cancer.
Screen Shot 2017 04 20 at 1.21.50 PMSome symptoms of oral cancer you may notice between visits. If you notice any of these, call immediately for a dental appointment: 
  • A sore or irritation that doesn't go away
  • Red or white patches
  • Pain, tenderness or numbness in your mouth or lips
  • A lump, thickening, rough spot, crust, or small eroded area.
  • Difficulty chewing, swallowing, speaking, or moving your jaw and tongue
  • A change in the way your teeth fit together when closing your mouth
