A Family Dentistry Excursion
The secret to a beautiful smile is finally revealed!
Here in Costa Rica, the land of beautiful, happy smiling faces... we
have found that the secret to a beautiful smile begins at an early age. A small child
learns the value of brushing one's teeth, by following good examples set by older family
members. A little known fact about Costa Ricans is that we always carry a toothbrush with
us; and, at the workplace brushing after meals is considered by everyone an important
aspect of the daily healthcare regimen. Costa Ricans are aware of all aspects of health,
including a healthy lifestyle which includes attention to diet and to exercise.
Dr. Simón Mermelstein, who has studied at the
University of Costa Rica and the famed Eastman Dental Center at Rochester, New York,
manages our Pediatric dentistry referrals and is marvelous with children of all ages...
and specifically treats the complex or difficult child, the mentally and physically
challenged, and those with extreme cases of oral disease or decay.
Together, we offer you and your family a great number of dental
procedures, both simple and complex, in order to restore teeth to the best form possible.
We focus on four areas of dental care
Infection Control Preventative
Restorative Dentistry Cosmetic
Now there are three most important ways to prevent tooth decay. You
already know that a regular routine of daily Brushing and Flossing are the first two steps
to a cleaner, brighter, and healthier smile. The third way is the use of Dental Sealants,
which we apply as a thin plastic coating on the biting surfaces of your teeth to create a
barrier to seal out the decay-causing bacteria that live in plaque!
The formation of plaque is considered the primary cause of cavities. As
you and your children eat during the day, food particles combine with bacteria to form a
sticky substance called plaque that attaches on and in between tooth surfaces. If it is
not removed regularly, it can produce acids which attack the tooth enamel and produce
cavities in the teeth leading to further tooth decay.
We recommend sealants for both you and your children This slippery
plastic material makes it harder for plaque to stick to the tiny grooves on the biting
surfaces of the teeth...thereby reducing the risk of forming cavities and tooth decay.
With a special instrument, a rather simple process applies a thin layer of the material to
the biting surfaces of your teeth. This preventative treatment to keep your teeth healthy,
lasts for a long time and is effective both on the young and old, alike.
You, too, can be one of the happy
families that comes to Costa Rica this year for A Complete Dental Excursion. A trip that
will be remembered forever... and we can provide you and your family with beautiful smiles
for years to come.
