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- Poor Oral Hygiene Tied to Cancer-Linked Virus

Article Title: Poor Oral Hygiene Tied to Cancer-Linked Virus, Study Finds

Article Review:

This health news article follows a study, which suggests that individuals who have teeth and gums in poor condition may be at higher risk for an oral virus, Human Papillomavirus (HPV), that leads to throat and mouth cancers. While the results of the study do not indicate that diseased teeth and gums cause HPV infections, a correlation has been found.

 

One of the researchers in the study, Christine Markham, stated that her team accounted for other additional factors such as smoking in the study to find other possible links to HPV. While there may be more than one factor that can lead to the connection with oral HPV and poor oral health, Markham indicated that taking care of oral health is important for health in general, and should be of the utmost importance.

 

Oral health has been connected to cancers of the throat and mouth, and it has been noted that mouth is the window to an individuals overall health. Dr. Joseph Mormino understands the importance of maintaining oral health, and is committed to delivering his patients with unparallel, proactive, dental care.

 

During a consultation with Dr. Mormino, your entire oral history will be evaluated so that Dr. Mormino has a clear understanding of the status of your teeth and gums. From this information, we will be able to move forward to find the best oral care solutions for your dental needs. Contact Staten Island Smiles today to find out more.
