We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines.

While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office.

Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows the infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued

We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment.

We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask for some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.          
  • We have a hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.                            
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys, and so forth since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.                                                                             
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re

offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

To make an appointment, please call our office at 313-800-8940 or visit our website at MyDetroitDentist.com.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.

Depending on the situation, there are a  Variety of choices that all result in excellent esthetic outcomes. For whiter natural teeth in-office at-home bleaching [whitening] techniques are available.  Repairing teeth or closing spaces may  be accomplished with tooth-colored  composite resin bonding,

porcelain veneers or porcelain crowns. These procedures vary in time and cost and have been differences in longevity and appearance. if you’re not satisfied with smile or want to learn if you’re a good candidate of any of these remarkable techniques,call our office for a cosmetic consultation.

Bridging The Gaps

How we perceive our smile and appearance affects our self-esteem, our mods and how we function in social and business
relationships. Common conditions that impact negatively on your smile include broken cracked or worn teeth, discolored teeth, missing teeth , crooked teeth, decayed teeth, gaps between your teeth and/or “gummy smiles”

Each patient and each specific circumstance must be evaluated on its own merits. Factors such a [bite], oral habits, available space, health of the gum tissue, severity of the problem and patient expectation must be taken in to consideration while planning your cosmetic makeover.

This person was missing his upper lateral incisors and had unsightly gaps as a result. Many people are left with spaces created by extraction of teeth due to severe catavities or periodontal [gum] disease.

In those circumstances, the treatment of choice may be a fixed bridge [an attached
group of crowns (caps)] to replace the missing teeth.

Several teeth are prepared [cut in to a  conical shape] to serve us abutments [teeth to which the fixed bridge is attached] so that the Pontics [crowns

that replace the missing teeth] are held in position.

This procedure usually takes 2-4 visits depending on how extensive the situation is, and its completed when the bridge is permanently cemented on the abutment teeth. The most common fixed bridges are made with porcelain fused to metal for both strength and aesthetics. Call our  office if you think you’re a candidate for this type of procedure.

“In this cover story I go over the principles of T3 and how its  can easily be integrated into anyone’s busy lifestyle to change  mind and body forever.”

A recent study at Rutgers University.  And published in Phytochemistry,  confirmed a long-held theory that Ingestion of cranberries is helpful in  protecting harmful bacteria in the urinary tract.

This is due to one of its natural
compounds called proanthocyanidin  [PAC’s], and its anti-adhesion effect.

The anti-adhesion property of
cranberries prevents bacteria from sticking to the urinary tract , which is one of the most common regions for a woman to develop a bacterial infection.

Half off all women will experience at least one urinary tract infection in their lifetime.

E coli, bacteria that cause urinary tract  infections, are becoming

increasingly resistant to common antibiotics.

The study concluded that 80% of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria where prevented from sticking by the anti-adhesion property  of cranberries. There is some conjecture that PAC’s found in the cranberry may minimize  stomach ulcers and gum disease by the  same mechanism.

This study compared the action of PAC’s in cranberries to those in other foods such as grape and apple juice, dark chocolate and green tea. Apparently, not all PAC-rich foods have the same success or offer the same protection.

By means of comparison, one eight-ounce glass of cranberry juice has the equivalent PAC’s as a cup of frozen or fresh cranberries, 1/3 cup of sweetened dried cranberries or 1/3 cup of cranberry sauce.

Both this study and earlier research show that the benefits of one glass of cranberry juice kicks in about two hours
after consumption and last for about 10 hours.

So it is recommended that you drink one glass of cranberry juice in the morning and one evening for the maximum protection. Remember, cranberry is a food and not a treatment.

Keep in mind that anyone who suspects an infection should consult the appropriate health care practitioner.

FP1 is a fixed (permanent) restoration and replaces the missing crown of a tooth. With FP1 restorations, the final crown can look very similar to the original tooth that is now missing. To fabricate this type of restoration, there must be minimal bone and soft tissue lost.

The implant must be placed in a position similar to where the root of the tooth once was. This type of restoration is best when the implant is placed immediately after the removal of the tooth or the removal of the remaining root of the tooth.

Generally speaking, 6 months after tooth removal you may start experiencing bone loss if an implant is not placed in the area of the extraction site.

Remember, the FP1 gives the best esthetic results and therefore should be considered immediately after tooth loss. 

No matter what kind of sports you like, your speed plays a crucial role in your success. Whether you like swimming, football, or cycling, your speed determines if you are going to win the competition or lose it. Speed is important for most athletic activities. A person must be able to move swiftly and frequently from one place to the other to lock the opponent or gain points. 

The implant must be placed in a position similar to where the root of the tooth once was. This type of restoration is best when the implant is placed immediately after the removal of the tooth or the removal of the remaining root of the tooth.

One of the best ways to increase your pace is by exercising. Exercising strengthens your muscles, increases concentration, and decreases your reaction time. There are different kinds of exercises you can do to increases your agility.

The implant must be placed in a position similar to where the root of the tooth once was. This type of restoration is best when the implant is placed immediately after the removal of the tooth or the removal of the remaining root of the tooth.

Burpee.  This is an excellent whole-body workout that helps to strengthen every muscle of your body, develop explosive strength and speed.


Jumping Jacks.  Jumping jack is also a whole-body workout, just like burpees. The movement involves all the leg muscles and swinging the arms enhances the cardiovascular training effect.

Sprinting in One Spot.  Sprinting is good for increasing speed, but you cannot do that at home due to less space. So, try sprinting in one spot.


Speed Ladder.  The speed ladder is the most effective tool for training your footwork. It challenges your body to adapt to new muscle patterns, improves balance and speed.

Box Jump.  This exercise is good to train your leg and core muscles, which helps you to run faster.

When treating patients, we see things that the average person does not see. For example, a young mother who takes care of everyone else but puts her own dental care on hold or, the college student living on a shoestring budget, hoping his agonizing toothache vanishes. Then there is the business executive who does not have time for a cleaning.

We understand. These are real people with real issues. However, as long as you eat, you need regular dental care. That means everyone!!!

We have tried and true way to cut your dental cost, and save you a ton of time. People who walk through our doors every 6 months know what we are talking about. We can help you too.

Give us a call today and schedule your appointment!
