Your Sudbury, MA Dentist Decodes Dental Ingredients

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Wed, Mar 5, 2014 @ 11:12 AM

From the time you awaken to the time you retire for the night, you subject your body to a barrage of chemicals, toxins, and potentially hazardous compounds.

You may do so deliberately by smoking, drinking excessive alcohol, or choosing fast food over healthier fare. Sometimes, however, you subject yourself to unhealthy substances, having only the best intentions.

For example, consider the information found on the ingredient list of your toiletries and hygiene products, such as shampoo, mouthwash, facial creams, and toothpaste.

Dentist Demystifies Dental Implants

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Fri, Feb 28, 2014 @ 05:21 PM

From the desk of Dr. Janice Spada, Sudbury MA dentist:

For most of my patients, the idea of losing one’s tooth to extraction or injury is a rather frightening prospect. However, they’re often greatly relieved to discover that they have a number of excellent options for tooth replacement.

Despite the unpleasant effects of missing teeth on one’s quality of life, I hear of many patients who delay treatment for months, sometimes years, falsely believing that dentures are the only available means of replacing lost teeth.

A note from Dr. Janice Spada, your Sudbury, MA dentist—

The Olympic Games never fail to captivate men, women, and children from across the world, and the Sochi Winter Games were no exception. Even those who’ve never set foot in a gym feel that they, too, can one day achieve glory.

I’m not just being sentimental here; in previous years, the Olympic Games have been linked to increased interest in sports, physical activity, and fitness. A study published in the Journal of the American Dentistry Association reveals that 10-40% of all dental injuries are sports-related, and I can tell you that nearly five million teeth are lost to these injuries every year.

Invisible Braces for Visibly Improved Teeth says Sudbury MA Dentist

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Fri, Feb 21, 2014 @ 11:35 AM

From the desk of Dr. Janice Spada

When I began practicing dentistry in 1982, . Orthodontics was very different. Back then, patients who wanted straighter teeth had no choice but to rely on traditional metal braces with elastic bands, brackets, and frequent trips to an orthodontist.

Today, I’m pleased to offer my patients Invisalign in Sudbury, MA. Invisalign, which uses clear plastic aligners to subtly shift errant teeth into place.

It’s a remarkable opportunity for anyone who has ever kept their smile under wraps out of embarrassment about the spacing and straightness of their teeth.

Building Patient Trust 

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Tue, Sep 17, 2013 @ 11:35 AM

We believe trust is developed when we handle our patients with care.

Waiting excessively, no attention to the patient or the family members while waiting; allowing hours to go by without water.

Professionals fixated on the machines read outs and not the patients emotions. Is this healthcare or a science fair project?

Posted by Janice Spada, D.M.D. on Tue, Aug 27, 2013 @ 04:37 PM

If you do not like a floss brand or product; toothbrush brand or product, what real value is my opinion?
