Walk to End Alzheimer’s with Advanced Dental Care

October 4, 2017

Walk to End Alzheimer's Diease - Alzheimer's Dental Care - Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson - Dementia Dental Care - Dentist for Alzheimer's - Dentist for Dementia - Costa Mesa Dentist - Elderly Dentist - Newport Beach Dentist - Huntington Beach Dentist - Irvine Dentist - Gentle Dentist - Santa Ana Dentist Walk to End ALZ

Alzheimer’s not only affects the patients, but their family and friends too.  As some of you may know, Dr. Jorgenson lost his grandmother to Alzheimer’s several years back.  By the end of her life, the only family members she could recognize was her husband and a daughter.  She required daily assisted living to perform even basic life functions, but did remember how to play the piano! Our mission is to help the Alzheimer’s Association find a cure so that no one else has to suffer.

That’s why we’re asking you to join us this Saturday, October 7th for the annual Orange County Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Bolsa State Beach in Huntington Beach, CA.

About Alzheimer’s

Walk to End Alzheimer's Diease - Alzheimer's Dental Care - Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson - Dementia Dental Care - Dentist for Alzheimer's - Dentist for Dementia - Costa Mesa Dentist - Elderly Dentist - Newport Beach Dentist - Huntington Beach Dentist - Irvine Dentist - Gentle Dentist - Santa Ana Dentist

Dr. Jorgenson (2001) with Grandma Betty

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and affects a person’s memory, thinking abilities, and behaviors.  It can start early, but usually affects those 65 years and older and can be severely debilitating to everyday life.  A person suffering from Alzheimer’s often cannot recognize family members, personal objects, familiar surroundings, or memories.  The basis of the disease is thought to be the accumulation of plaques and tangles that interfere with nerve cells in the brain, but much more research is needed to understand the how and why.  There is currently no treatment or cure for Alzheimer’s.  Over time the condition worsens and patients usually need assistance with daily care.

Alzheimer’s Dental Care

Persons suffering from Alzheimer’s may need assistance with dental care.  Here are some tips for providing daily oral care to persons with Alzheimer’s or dementia:

  • Give simple instructions
    • Use short words/phrases in plain language.
  • Demonstrate how to brush/floss
    • If the person still has the motor skills to use a toothbrush, you can instruct them how to brush by having them watch you do it.  Same with flossing.
  • Assist as Necessary
    • Help them hold the toothbrush and make the motions.
    • Use the toothbrush to gently brush teeth, gums, tongue, and roof of mouth.
    • Assist with flossing or using an interdental pick.
    • If the patient has dentures, ensure they are routinely cleaned with warm water and a soft toothbrush, soft sponge pick, or even wet gauze.
  • Watch your fingers
    • Patients might get frightened or frustrated if they are not sure what is happening to them.
    • Be gentle and give breaks.
  • Keep up Routine Dental Visits
    • Going to the dentist to ensure there is no decay or infection of the teeth or gums can significantly reduce the risk of painful or emergency dental conditions later.
    • Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson is experienced with treating Alzheimer’s patients and you can book an appointment by calling 714-424-9099 or visit www.mycostamesadentist.com.

Fall in Love with your Smile – Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry

October 1, 2017

Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry in Costa Mesa

How many times have you found yourself scrutinizing your smile in the mirror? Or analyzing your smile in photos on Facebook and Instagram? You’ve probably thought that achieving your perfect smile is simply out of reach, but what you might not know is that there are so many implant & cosmetic dentistry options for improving your smile.

Possessing a strong sense of pride and well-being leads to more smiling and smiling is known to be contagious.  People who love their smile tend to be happier, more outgoing, and more successful.  Implant & cosmetic dentistry help you achieve these goals by improving the look and health of your smile.  So what are you waiting for?

What Treatments are Right for Me?

Common reasons people don’t love their smile include staining, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, small teeth, large teeth, gum recession, gummy smile, crooked teeth, crowded teeth, overlapping teeth, overbite, under bite, and missing teeth.  The great news is all of these conditions can be treated right in our Costa Mesa dental office by Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson.

Implant Dentistry

Dental implants are a great long-term solution to replacing missing teeth.  We strongly recommend choosing an experienced doctor and an implant made by a reputable company.  Remember, cheaper is definitely not better when it comes to your health.

We place dental implants in a 3-step process.  During step 1, we place the implant screw into the jaw and allow 3-4 months for the jaw bone to grow in around the screw like a natural tooth root.  You will have a temporary tooth during this time.

Next, we place the custom abutment and prep for the permanent crown.  The custom abutment is the anchor for the dental crown and made for the specific screw that was placed.  In the last step, we cement the permanent crown, all-ceramic, strong, natural-looking tooth, that attaches to the abutment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

There are many procedures that fall under Cosmetic Dentistry so we want to tell you about our top 4 ways to quickly and effectively enhance Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson - Costa Mesa Dentist - Emergency Dentist - Saturday Dentist - Dental Crowns - Dental Bridges - Dental Implants - Invisalign - Veneers - Teeth Whitening - implant & cosmetic dentistrythe look of your smile.

Teeth Whitening

We offer 3 types of teeth whitening at our Costa Mesa dental office.  Depending on types of staining, condition of teeth, sensitivity level, and budget, we will recommend the best solution to achieve the best results.  See Jose R. here and Kathy B. here.

  • Take-Home Teeth Whitening Trays
  • Epic Laser Teeth Whiteningtooth bonding - composite - cosmetic dentistry - cosmetic dentist - costa mesa - newport beach - irvine - oc- implant & cosmetic dentistry
  • Zoom! Teeth Whitening

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is also a great way to quickly repair chips or add size or dimension to a tooth.  The bonding procedure is similar to dental fillings in that we use the same composite material and match the composite to your tooth shade for a natural looking repair in just one visit.  See Courtney D. here and Alicia M. here.costa mesa dentist - procelain veneers - implant & cosmetic dentistry - beautiful teeth - close up teeth - dental veneers - old dental bonding - dental crowns - new teeth - hollywood smile - dentist open now - dentist near me

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin-sheets of porcelain that we bond to the front of your tooth.  The great thing about dental veneers is that you can change the look, shade, and shape of your smile allowing you to choose the type of smile you want to achieve.  The veneers are custom-made just for when and to the specifications you choose with Dr. Jorgenson.  See Libby J. here.

Invisalign

Invisalign is also an orthodontic procedure and provides not only a more desirable smile, but a healthier one too!  Straight teeth in the correct alignment often resolves many grinding, clenching, TMJ, gum recession, and plaque/tartar issues that result from crooked or misaligned teeth.  The Invisalign process starts with a custom treatment plan with custom made trays just for you!  The teeth slowly move into the correct position until treatment is complete.  With Invisalign you also have the added benefit of being able to take the trays out to eat and to brush your teeth.  See Mike P. here.

Explore your options during a consult with Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson at our Costa Mesa dental office today! Call 714-424-9099 or book online anytime at www.mycostamesadentist.com.

How Your Dentist Can Help Your Sensitive Gums

September 19, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — dr_jorgenson @ 7:43 pm

close-up of gums

You’re brushing your teeth one night, and you’re trying to be as gentle as possible because your gums have been feeling extra sensitive lately. Then, you look down in the sink, and you see a distinctive pink color. Now they’re bleeding! Both of these are signs of the most common dental problem in the world today, gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly half of the U.S. adult population currently has gum disease, and most are completely unaware. It is actually an infection in your gums and the bone surrounding your teeth brought on by bacterial plaque, and in order to eliminate it, you need to see a dentist right away. How will they treat your gum disease? Below, we detail the 3 most common methods so you can know what to expect when you make an appointment.

Back to School Smiles – Child’s Dental Appointments

August 1, 2017

Back-to-School ⋅ Healthy Kids Healthy Smiles

Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson - Pediatric Dentist - Family Dentist - Costa mesa dentist - orange county dentist - best childrens dentist - kids dentist -ppo dentist - emergency dentist - child's dentalHave you scheduled your child’s dental appointment?

Did you know that children who miss their regularly scheduled child’s dental appointments could suffer both health and academic consequences?  According to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, “Children with poorer oral health status were more likely to experience dental pain, miss school, and perform poorly in school.”¹  As a parent, we know your number one priority is to ensure the health and well-being of your child.  You can ensure your child’s dental health is in tip-top shape by seeing your dentist before the school year starts!

Dental Check-up Appointment

At your child’s dental appointment, our team will ensure that your child’s smile is free of decay and provide the necessary preventative care to keep them healthy until their next visit.  Depending on the age of your child and how frequent they visit Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson - Costa Mesa Dentist - Emergency Dentist - Saturday Dentist - Dental Crowns - Dental Bridges - Dental Implants - Invisalign - Veneers - Teeth Whitening - child's dentalental hygienists will then perform a hygiene exam to check the gums and tongue for any signs of trouble.  Then Dr. Jorgenson will perform his comprehensive exam to check for any abnormalities, decay, or possible future issues to monitor.

If the exams and x-rays show no signs of disease, decay, or other dental health issues, we will perform a teeth cleaning, polish the teeth, and apply fluoride to protect the tooth enamel (as needed).  Before the end of the child’s dental appointment, one of our hygienists will review tips for maintaining a happy, healthy smile!  This includes proper brushing and flossing technique and review of foods and drinks that are good or bad for teeth.  Children can practice using a toothbrush on an oversized mouth model for education and for fun!

Possible Dental Conditions in Children

During your child’s dental comprehensive exam, there may be conditions discovered that require treatment.  Depending on the condition, the necessary treatment can be performed immediately in our Costa Mesa dental office or just something Dr. Jorgenson wants to keep an eye on.  Any possible issues will be discussed in full, allowing time for discussion of all treatment options, and any questions you or your child might have.  Some common conditions include:

We know that most children (and most adults) don’t love going to the dentist.  Our professional and knowledgeable dental team understand this and are also parents.  We have tools and techniques to help ensure your child is comfortable and relaxed throughout their child’s dental appointment.  If your child has a more severe dental anxiety, please call to ask about conscious oral sedation.  Remember the more familiar your child is with Dr. Jorgenson, our hygienists, our assistants, and our office staff, the more comfortable he or she will be on subsequent visits.

Our office is in-network with almost all PPO Dental Insurances and offers our own Be Smile Smart dental plan for patients with no dental insurance.  Most dental insurance plans cover exams, x-rays, and cleanings at 100% meaning no out-of-pocket costs to you!

For more information on your child’s dental appointment or proper dental care for children, please contact us at (714) 424-9099 or visit us online at www.mycostamesadentist.com.  We offer early morning, late evening, and Saturday dental appointments to accommodate your family’s busy schedule!

Dentist in Costa Mesa Says Reduce Stress for Back to School

July 31, 2017

Our dentist in Costa Mesa provides children’s dentistry. We love back to school season at Advanced Dental Care — but we also know kids’ dental health can get a little out of whack during August and September. Bruxism, or nighttime teeth grinding, may occur as your child starts to adjust their sleeping schedules to wake up early again. As your child gets back into the figurative grind, make sure their teeth aren’t getting into one, too. Learn more about preventing stress and associated bruxism in this week’s blog post from your dentist in Costa Mesa, Dr. Jeremy B. Jorgenson!
