From our Family to Yours, we hope and pray that everyone in your life is healthy and feeling well.
We are pleased to announce the Full Re-Opening of our practice!
As we begin to return to our normal lives, our practice is now open for all dental procedures, not just emergent ones. Throughout this crisis, we have remained open to care for all emergency patients and we look forward to resuming all aspects of dental care.
Lack of oral health has been directly linked to more serious health issues and cannot be overlooked. It is important to resume dental cleanings and to address any dental issues that have been put off during this crisis.
Our staff is fully prepared to continue to protect our Patients from not only Covid-19 but from all viral exposure as the Infection Control and Anti-viral protocols that we have practiced for 30 years far exceed industry standards.
To all our patients that had appointments cancelled due to this health crisis, we will be contacting you to reschedule those appointments. As always you can reach us at 718-876-9100 to schedule an appointment on your own or with any questions you may have.
As always, our office and lab continue to welcome all new patients and emergencies if your current dental office is not available
We look forward to seeing each of you again soon!
All the best,
Dr. Mormino, Lauren, Lisa, Anne Marie, Mary, Gladys, Annie & MaryEllen
Health News Article- Habits that Damage Your TeethBy SEO Admin on August 21, 2013
Article Title: Everyday Habits That Damage Your Teeth
Through this health news article, everyday habits that damage your teeth are discussed. Over 25 percent of U.S. adults over the age of 65 have lost all of their teeth. To ensure that your teeth are protected, consider taking inventory of your food and beverage consumption, along with certain activities, including:
Sugar Intake- sugar yields an acid- producing bacteria that eats away at tooth enamel. Candies and dried fruits that stick to your teeth should be avoided. If you have a sweet tooth, gravitate towards fresh fruit instead of candy.
Soda- both sugar-free and regular varieties of soda bathe teeth in an acid environment. Wine and fruit juices also can yield more acidic environments, and less saliva production. Rinse your mouth with water between drinks to avoid acid buildup.
Smoking- oral health, gums, and soft tissue all become compromised when an individual smokes or chew tobacco. Learn ways to quit by speaking with Dr. Mormino today.
Using teeth to rip objects- using teeth to remove clothing tags, open a bottle, or rip open plastic bags can put your teeth at risk for dental damage.
At Staten Island Smiles, your oral health is of the utmost importance to Dr. Joseph Mormino and our team. We are always researching new ways that patients can keep their smiles both beautiful and healthy.
