Patient Testimonials

"I was petrified before I came in. ..probably more afraid than most. Dr.Jones and his staff completed a thorough exam of my teeth and gums, followed by a well-explained, DETAILED outcome and plan of action. Completed my second visit today - a very deep cavity needed filling. I was seen right on time and was completely satisfied with the entire process and outcome. I especially appreciated Kelly's ability to assuage my fear and apprehension. Great job all around! - Mildred L.

What You Should Know Before Switching from Cigarettes to E-Cigs

dentist lewes de

If you are a cigarette smoker who has been contemplating the switch to electronic cigarettes, also known as “vaping,” you might think you would be doing yourself—and your oral health—a favor. But you might want to think again.

According to a recent study published in the medical journal Oncotarget, researchers have found that the chemicals in e-cigarettes are equally as damaging as those found in regular cigarettes. Although e-cigarette liquids don’t contain tobacco like cigarettes, they contain nicotine and other dangerous chemicals.

Talk to your dentist in Lewes about your smoking habit before you switch from cigarettes to e-cigarettes. Your oral health—and your overall health—will still be at risk.

It has been said that dental pain is some of the worst for patients to endure, and anyone who has ever had an infected or abscessed tooth can confirm this. We're talking about the kind of intense pain that doesn't let you sleep at night. This is the kind of situation that only a root canal can relieve.

Of those surveyed, 28 percent said they felt their poor oral health was holding their career back.

A lot of research supports the fact that your oral health is closely tied to your quality of life, and that includes your ability to reach your goals. ...

The bad reputation that root canals have is a holdover from a time decades ago when dentists were limited in their ability to streamline the procedure. Unfortunately, the myth persists, in spite of the fact that improved techniques and state-of-the-art technology make the process more efficient and comfortable than ever before.

Oral Health Care: Ancient vs. Modern

You wake up every morning and brush your teeth dutifully because you know it’s necessary for good oral health. It’s become a habit that you do without question.

But consider the fact that history tells us ancient people didn’t brush and didn’t get cavities. How is that possible?

The Answer Is in Your Diet!

Until the early 1900s, we didn’t have access to processed foods. Instead, our ancestors consumed natural diets rich in nutrients that made their teeth stronger and more resistant to cavities. Ancient diets also consisted of a lot of fibrous foods that were not only good for digestion but also carried off bacteria and plaque to keep teeth clean.

Today, our ...

Don't Shy Away from Modern Dentures

Say the word “dentures,” and most people envision a set of chunky, unnaturally perfect artificial teeth. Unfortunately, this was often the case in the past; dentists were limited by the materials available at the time, and the focus of dentures was more on function than aesthetics.

However, advances in dental materials and technology have completely changed the way we approach the denture process. Today, we have access to high-quality materials that we can use to customize full and partial dentures to look as much like your natural teeth as possible.

Dentures Customized Just for You

Whether you are getting a full set of dentures or a partial, our planning process includes talking ...
