Help the team at 19th Street Dental shed a few pounds!

Like millions of Americans this time of year, Dr. Trushar Patel and the staff at 19th Street Dental is on a mission to lose weight. Did you know a pound of weight is about 3,500 calories? That's according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

To help us get started, we thought we'd ask you, our loyal patients: what strategy you use to lose weight? Do you cut back on the fries and soda (and the calories)? Do you jog? Do you swim?

Please share your tips and strategies with us, and who knows, maybe we'll post your answers on our social networks! As always, please feel free to give us a call!

Get those wisdom teeth out, says Dr. Patel!

Dr. Patel recently read an article in People Magazine about Brooke Mueller (actor Charlie Sheen's wife) and her struggle with pneumonia. Her mother said part of the reason for her illness was that Brooke "waited too long to get her impacted wisdom tooth removed and the infection has spread all over. It is in her bloodstream."

This is where Dr. Patel and our team would remind you about the dangers of not removing wisdom teeth, which first start appearing between the ages of 16 and 25. The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, or AAOMS, has a very helpful page on wisdom teeth.

Also, did you know Dr. Patel specializes in dental implants? Dental implants, which are an excellent solution to missing individual teeth, are intended only for candidates with sufficient bone and healthy gums. For more information on dental implants, please visit 19th Street Dental's web site.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
