How can we help YOU? What dental issues do you have that need solutions? Do you have any questions?
---

By taking the time to listen to our patients and providing a thorough exam, we have strived to answers these questions for our patients here in East Lyme since 1997. We take whatever time is necessary for us to gather the facts needed so that we can provide each patient with options to their own unique issues. These options will be clearly laid out so that each patient will be able to choose the best option for them. This is our goal.

We employ some of the newest techniques and technology. We couple the new with the best of the time-tested techniques and materials in order to give our patients the best, longest lasting results.

And if there is a procedure we do not do, or answers to questions we are not best suited to provide, we will get you to the best dental specialists for those answers and solutions.

If our practice sounds suited to what you are looking for in a dentist….we would gladly welcome you to our practice. Give us a call at (860) 739-6915. Or email us at office@zelmanowdental.com

Tooth enamel is very hard, but that doesn’t mean you can’t break it. Try to avoid eating “hard foods” such as popcorn. Don’t crack nut shells with your teeth or chew on ice. Opening packages with your teeth can also damage the enamel.

Yes, they can look cool, but they can also fracture your teeth as well as make it much easier to get a nasty infection of the tongue and lips. Dentists have estimated that up to 40% of people who have metal rings or other oral piercings have had big problems from tooth fractures and infection.

Fluoride is fine…in small amounts. Excessive fluoride can cause tooth enamel irregularities. Young children, especially, often swallow too much toothpaste while brushing. So parents, supervise your young kids while they brush. Kids (and even adults) often use way too much toothpaste (a pea-size drop is plenty). A little goes a long way.
