  2. Children’s Dental Health Month

     

    Children First
    Celebrate Children’s Dental Health Month with a New Change

    Regularly Scheduled Dental Visits

     

    February is Children’s Dental Health month. In honor of this topic, we encourage parent’s and caregivers to choose one healthy habit for their children to focus on changing. Parent’s and caregivers are the best examples for their children.
    Here are some examples of healthy habits to focus on this month:

    Parents Make the Difference

    1) Think before you drink….make sure you are serving water or milk as a beverage.
    2) Swap a sugary, processed snack for fruit, vegetables or cheese.
    3) Brush your teeth together – make this a family event and teach your children how to correctly care for their teeth
    4) Floss your teeth together – flossing is such a dreaded part of the oral hygiene routine. Enforce that brushing and flossing go hand-in-hand! Create a sticker chart to keep track and to set a reminder!
    5) Educate them on what the dentist and his team do. Teach them the proper language used at the dentist. Here is a handy chart to get started! 

    Healthy Habits Start Young

    Give kids a reason to smile and show off their bright smile!

  4. Warm Smiles Inside

    Cleanings – Make this First on your 2018 List 

     

    It’s the new year! Happy 2018! Is getting a dental hygiene cleaning on your list of resolutions? Why do people procrastinate on scheduling cleanings? Cleanings are one of the best things you can do to stay healthy! If you have dental insurance benefits, most policies cover your hygiene cleanings  — so it’s time for you to get your teeth cleaned! Prevention is less expensive than extensive dental work.

    Frankel Dentistry sees patients every 3, 4, or 6 months. Patients may start at four visits per year and graduate to twice a year. Folks with health complications such as diabetes find more frequent visits very helpful. Some patients keep their smile in-check by maintaining their 3 month re-care, others do well visiting twice a year.

     

    Here are a few of the Benefits of Getting Routine Hygiene Cleanings:

    1) Professional cleanings remove plaque and calicified build-up.

    2) Less plaque =  less cavities

    3) Less plaque = lower risk of gum disease

    4) Regular cleanings help lower your risk of some diseases such as heart disease – early signs of these diseases can be detected in your mouth.

    5) Less plaque = lower risk for needing extensive dental treatment such as a root canal, filling or crown, which saves you money

    6) Frequent visits include instructions to keep your at-home cleanings fine tuned.

    It’s still important to take care of your mouth at home and maintain strong oral health habits. Schedule a professional cleaning and oral exam.  If you would like Frankel Dentistry’s Insurance Benefit Coordinator will check with your insurance to see what is covered.

    Put your health first this year and make the appointment!

     

  5. Dentistry Discovers Immediate Gratification

    Whiter Teeth

    Four Shades in Four Minutes

    It almost sounded too good to be true. The marriage of the tooth cleaning jiggle of an ultrasonic toothbrush and a unique whitening solution. Micro-exploding, speed defying hydrogen peroxide quickly invading teeth and and leaving them sparkling white. Amazing!

    Jon Frankel, DDS

    Four shades in four minutes? Toledo dentist, Jon Frankel had to check it out. Ever since his father began practicing dentistry in 1946, the latest in technology and dental advances has been a hallmark of Frankel Dentistry. The dentists, hygienists, assistants and staff enjoyed a live uPhoria webinar. Immediately inundated with volunteers, Frankel held a drawing for the uPhoria Ultrasonic Teeth Whitening test procedure.

    uPhoria Winner Dr. Gemma Hill

    The winner was Dr. Gemma Hill. Her appointment was scheduled within minutes. Chair time start to finish, a brief 20 minutes.

    uPhoria Teeth Whitening Procedure

     

    “My gums were tingly, but I had no tooth sensitivity”, shared Dr. Hill. A week later, her smile is a solid 4 shades lighter and her gums feel great. Dr. Hill plans to offer the procedure to busy patients before a crown procedure. Crowns are designed to match teeth but once placed cannot be whitened.

    uPhoria not only Whitens Teeth.                They Stay White.

    uPhoria Ultrasonic Teeth Whitening is ideal for the patient with light to moderate discoloration. “The procedure is an easy addition to a 6 month recare visit, if the office is given adequate notice”, adds Zach, senior scheduling coordinator.

    Call Today!

    uPhoria Ultrasonic Teeth Whitening has found a permanent home in this midwestern town. One thing for sure, everyone at Frankel Dentistry is smiling!

  6. Best of Toledo Seven Years

    What do you do?

    Stiff Jaw? Headaches? Pain in jaw muscles? Jaw pain can affect millions of people and if left untreated it can be a real pain. People may grind their teeth during the day and at night and not even know it. The clenching can cause your jaw to stiffen and trigger headaches that become chronic.

    Who do you call?

    Call the Dentist!

    Another source of jaw pain is TMJ disorder. TMJ (temporomandibular joint) is when two joints slide out of alignment. Signs of TMY diorder may include: jaw locking or popping, jaw stiffness, achey/sore jaw, neck and face.

    How can a dentist help?

    Jon Frankel, DDS

    Your dentist can help provide relief! Certain exercises may help relax your jaw. You may benefit from a special diet including soft foods. Ice packs may help. Another treatment option includes an oral appliance such as a splint or bit guard.

  7. One Day. Eight Dentists. Free Dental Care in Toledo, Ohio.


    Frankel Dentistry

     

    Thanksgiving is a day of gratitude. Family and friends gather together, often to share a traditional meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. What about those who simply can’t smile? They have dental pain.

    Dr. Jonathan Frankel

     

    Eight years ago, Dr. Jonathan Frankel, a native of Toledo, Ohio decided to bring smiles back to those less fortunate. The day before Thanksgiving he opens his Toledo location dental office and offers free dental care.

    “We are so grateful to do what we love at Frankel Dentistry.  Dr. Puhl and I, our associates and staff enjoy serving others”, states Frankel. “What better way is there to show our gratitude and thankfulness than by encouraging others by giving free dental care”,  he asks. 

     

    Free Dental Care

    Each year the Frankel Team starts Thanksgiving a day early by donating their time and talent toward others.  Frankel Dentistry offers dental care free of charge on a first come, first see basis. Come early, the event is scheduled from 7:30 am until 12 noon on Wednesday, November 22nd at 5012 Talmadge Road.

    Olivia Slates, dental hygienist, commented, “Free Dental Day is the highlight of the year for many of us. Our free dental day patients are always so appreciative. The smiles mean the world to us. It just wouldn’t seem like Thanksgiving if we didn’t help those in need”.

     

    Frankel Dentistry has been serving Toledo since 1946. For more information, all the Toledo office at 419-474-9611.

  8. King of Smiles

    What to Know about Crowns

    A dental crown is a restoration that is cemented to your tooth that is used to strengthen damage caused by wear, decay or injury. Crowns help improve the appearance of a tooth and recover function.

    Your dentist may recommend a crown for you if you:

    • Have a fractured tooth
    • Need to protect a tooth from breaking
    • Need to replace a large filling
    • Cap a tooth that has a root canal

    Crowns have been around for a long time in the dental world. With technology, the procedure keeps improving and we are pleased to be using the latest technology that allows us to do same-day crowns.

    Frankel Dentistry uses the CEREC machine which is a device that can create a permanent crown perfectly formulated to fit your tooth in about an hour.  Patients love this new technology as it eliminates the need for temporary crowns, which saves patients time and discomfort.

    The staff at Frankel Dentistry design a computer generated crown that fits your tooth precisely. Then CEREC blocks are milled into a beautiful crown. The color of your tooth is matched. Once the machine competes the crown, it is polished and immediately placed onto your tooth. You are then free to leave our office with your problems solved and your smile looking as good as new.

  9. Now you see it. Now you don’t. Dental Insurance Benefits

    Got Insurance? Be Sure to Use it!

    The year is almost over and that means you only have a few months left this year to use your dental benefits. Have you been putting off a dental procedure? Have you been seen for your regular exam yet? Now is the time to make the time to put your dental health first.

     

    Dr. Frankel and Dr. Puhl urge you to take advantage of your dental benefits — you are paying for them! If you have a Flexible Spending Account (FSA), the dollars are just sitting there waiting for you to use them — and this money will expire, so use it or lose it!

    If you have any questions about your benefit policy, our staff is more than willing to go over any questions you may have. Act quickly! The holidays are a busy time, so if you need to schedule treatment, get an appointment on the calendar.

     

  10. Trick-or-Treat!

    Dr. Frankel’s Tips for a Fun Halloween

    Costume? Check. Candy? Check. Toothbrush? Check!

    It’s that time of year – millions of children will be enjoying Halloween in their costumes and going door-to-door collecting a few tricks and lots of treats!

    Although some may think Halloween is a dentist’s nightmare, there are still ways to enjoy the holiday and respect your teeth.

    Dr. Frankel’s Tips for fa Fun Halloween.

    1. Enjoy candy in moderation – your child may come home with pounds of candy in their bag. Play a game and tell them to pick out a number of pieces to eat, save and donate.
    2. Try to avoid the sticky, gummy candy which can be dangerous for your teeth and especially any fillings – opt for chocolates and especially dark chocolate!
    3. Drink water after candy is consumed to help wash away the particles.
    4. If you are passing out treats, consider passing out non-sugar treats like pretzels, popcorn or even small toys like stickers and play-doh.
    5. Brush and floss your teeth after consuming candy to help prevent tooth decay.

    Halloween is a time to create memories – help teach your children how to have fun in other ways instead of focusing on all the candy they will be receiving, such as decorating pumpkins, playing tricks and even making their own costume.
