Happy New Year!
The new year is here! We are excited to start 2015 together with our patients and team.
What’s new at East Madison Dental
As you know, we are always staying on top of the latest in dental health and technology. Before the new year, Dr. Jain attended a talk on tongue-tied babies and nursing mothers. Unfortunately many mother’s find it difficult to nurse their newborn. Most of the time this is due to a condition called tongue-tie. A tongue-tied infant has limited movement of their lip or tongue which prevents them to latch onto their mother. Babies with lip tie often do not have a good seal when latching which causes the baby to take in excess air making them gassy and fussy. If this condition is left untreated, it can impair the child’s speech and proper tooth alignment.
Dr. Jain is currently correcting this condition by performing a laser frenectomy to detach the excess tissue. The healing and recovery time after the procedure is fairly quick and bleeding is usually minimal.
East Madison Dental also happy to announce our new iTero iOC scanner! With the iTero scanner, the goop and gagging of the old way to take dental impressions is no longer the only option. Instead of the putty clay like material in your mouth, we can now take a digital scan of your teeth thanks to this new technology. The iTero machine is accurate, faster, safe and comfortable!
We are very happy to start off this new year and look forward to seeing you throughout the year.
All of us at East Madison Dental wish you a promising and fulfilling New Year.
