Dentist in Worcester offers tips to keep your mouth healthy

When choosing a dentist in the Worcester area, it is important to find a professional who believes as much in prevention as he does in restoration or cosmetic treatment. Patients with good dental health have a dentist who can treat their existing oral health issues and help prevent others from occurring.

Dr. Stanley Levenson knows that dental problems such as tooth decay or gum disease can often be prevented. At Levenson Smile, the dentist and his team take special care to educate their patients about the best at home care to keep their smiles healthy and sparkling.

For example, while we know that brushing and flossing are the most critical practices to maintain dental health, many patients either rush through the acts or skip them all together. Think about how long you spend brushing away food particles and bacteria in your mouth. Then consider that the American Dental Association recommends that you spend a full two minutes brushing. Be sure to pay special attention to the front, back, top, and sides of each tooth. Because most of your teeth are touching another tooth, the only way to remove food particles from the sides of the teeth are to use floss. While this step is often skipped, it's just as critical as brushing. Many cavities actually begin between the teeth because this area is often missed.

It's also important to pay attention to the foods you eat and beverages you drink. Items that have a high sugar content feed harmful bacteria, creating a perfect environment for decay and disease to begin. While Dr. Levenson and his team know that you can't give up all sweet items, you should consider the impact that these foods and beverages have on your teeth as well as your overall health. In addition to sugary items, foods and beverages that are dark in color can stain the teeth and those with acidic content can damage the teeth's enamel.

Finally, one of the most important steps to dental health is keeping a regular schedule of visits to your dentist. These appointments provide you with a professional cleaning and give Dr. Levenson the opportunity to examine your mouth for potential weak spots or issues. With most dental issues, the sooner you receive treatment the easier the fix will be.

Your dental health is important to your overall health and wellness. It is important to think of oral health care the same way you think about eating healthy, getting exercise, and finding a doctor you trust. To schedule an appointment call the Levenson Smile office today.

"Well, I've got to tell you. I can't recommend highly enough Dr. Stanley Levenson. There's this mouth piece... it's great! I snore. . I used to snore, like a bear! It would leave me on the couch many, many nights. If I wasn't on the couch, I was getting an elbow in the ribs. I have sleep apnea and, using this device, I am well rested now!" ~ Michael Holley,

Stanley is no doubt the best dentist I have ever had, He and his staff have been wonderful to me since the day we met, when I came in for an emergency with my wisdom teeth. He came in on a Sunday to look at my teeth and helped me find help when I needed it most. I have been coming here ever since! I love having my teeth cleaned, the girls are so gentle and caring and I even got my Invisalign through Stan. I always have a great experience and would never go anywhere else! Thanks to everyone at Levensonsmile for treating me like family. Your all wonderful!! ~ Heather Kavanagh

After years of severe bruxism I took the plunge and had no prep veneers done! I can't say enough about the quality of his work! I did my homework and some other consults and am so happy with my choice in Dr Levenson and his team! Friends and family are amazed at how natural they look which was my #1 Chiclet gum smile for me thank you. He listened to my desires for my smile (while correcting some alignment and grinding issues) and was never pressured into doing more than I wanted. It was pain free, fast (a few couple hour appts) and done! They haven't hesitated to get me back in as I panicked over the new feeling and adjustment to the new teeth....that speaks volumes! Thanks Dr. Levenson See you in Chicago! ~ Laura M Hespell

I just started going to Dr Levenson, and it has been many many years since I was at the dentist. Well, let me tell you, it has been nothing but a pleasant experience all the way around. Right from the moment you walk into the reception area, you are greeted by professional and friendly staff they genuinely care that you are seen quickly and are comfortable and don't need anything. Throughout any procedure I was constantly asked if I was comfortable or in any pain (I wasn't). And, Dr Levenson had to refer me out at first for a root canal, and he went out of his way to make sure I was matched up with a dentist that would suit me! The best! ~ Danielle

Dr. Levenson and his staff are great and very friendly - I went in for a consultation for 6-month smiles because I was getting married and wanted to straighten my front teeth due to the crowding. I went for my first appointment in December, he explained everything to me and gave me my options. I decided to go with the 6-month smiles and got the braces put on before Christmas. They came off in June and I got married 4th of July weekend. Dr. Levenson did an amazing job. The results were incredible, especially since I was afraid the bottom teeth weren't going to be done in time. The crowding was pretty bad - definitely gave him a challenge but he worked his magic and made it happen. Kara was one of the assistants who worked with me and she was truly wonderful, an absolute sweetheart. Love her! Most recently, my husband did a pretty good job chipping one of his front teeth and Dr. Levenson was able to get him in and fix it quickly. Highly recommended dentist! ~ A Google User
