Dr. Vaysman offers additional teeth polishing service. She uses Prophy-jet polishing system that produce mixture of water and specially formulated baking soda. This procedure allows removing stain and plaque that is not otherwise removed during tooth brushing and scaling. This mixture is mach less abrasive than prophy pastes. This is an excellent alternative for patients who desire whiter teeth but cannot have whitening procedures due to sensitive teeth.
Periodontal means "around the tooth". Periodontal disease is an ongoing, slowly progressing, difficult-to-stop disease. Unless it is treated, it will continue to destroy your teeth. Plaque - the sticky colorless film that constantly builds on your teeth - is recognized as the primary cause of gum disease. If plaque isn't removed each day by brushing and flossing, it hardens into a rough, porous substance called calculus or tartar. Toxins produced and released by bacteria in plaque irritate the gums. These toxins cause the breakdown of the fibers that hold the gums tightly to the teeth, creating periodontal pockets that will fill with even more toxins and bacteria. As the disease progresses, pockets become deeper, and the bacteria move down until the bone that holds the teeth in place is destroyed. Eventually, severe infection may develop with pain and swelling. The teeth may loosen. There are other factors, too. Smokers and tobacco users are at a higher risk of developing gum disease. Research also shows that periodontal disease is related to causing heart disease, stroke,pancreatic cancer and diabetes.
COVID 19 SAFETY MODIFICATIONS
Patient health and safety is always the main priority of Dr. Vaysman. To provide maximum protection from Covid-19, Dr. Vaysman completely rebuilt her dental office ventilation system, so air does not circulate between the rooms. Air in the treatment room is replaced with fresh air every minute.
In addition to usual infection control measures, we are fogging with hypochlorous acid every area visited by the patient, including the restroom, we doing this after each patient. Treatment room and restroom are also disinfected with UVC germicidal lights for 20 minutes after each patient.
COVID 19 VISITOR PROTOCOL

Hand sanitizers are available throughout the office.
