Maintaining good health has a wide range of implications dependent on a person’s motivation, curiosity, dependability and responsibility. Yes, I know this is a broad statement. But I must confess in my experience people with these personality traits seem to be more respectful of their health care experts efforts. It is noticeable that they follow instructions regarding recommended care, and it seems obvious that this character trait is evident in most other areas of their lives. In other words, they have an awareness that allows them to be trustworthy, loyal, helpful friendly, courteous, kind, obedient (when it was in their interest), cheerful, brave, clean and reverent! Experience has led me to believe healthy people are equipped to do better for themselves and others in all aspects of life. Good health reflects “wellness.” Promoting good health is worthwhile!
In other words, we are responsible for our health. It’s a job we cannot delegate with any surety. However, let me suggest, it is wise to have in place a team of healthcare providers that are trustworthy because the truth is: we are subject to illness. A primary physician should function as a “health advisor/mentor”. Knowing many patients use technology, like the internet as their principle source of information worries me. Not that there isn’t good information available, it’s just that not depending on the many years of education and experience of their own carefully chosen medical advocates in conjunction with seeking outside sources could lead to serious consequences. The very worst cases are those who do not understand all the nuances and implications “out there”, which often leads to neglect or worse.
Sadly, some patients selectively ignore parts of their lives and decide to improve their over-all health by running, yoga (to name examples) but continue to smoke and drink. On the other hand, they are those who are knowledgeable about nutrition but never follow through with any sort of medical checkup.
The word is: good health starts with genetics but is reliant upon prevention, which requires constant vigilance. Considering the absorbent cost of getting back to health is much greater than the cost of maintenance, not losing sight of the overall requirements in the first place seems to me goods advice. I have quite a few patients in their 90s with a full complement of teeth and not one case was restoration free. It is safe to say the common denominator of these smiling senior citizens is the fine level of quality restorations and their own personal commitment to keeping their teeth clean with home-care and a concerned and conscientious hygienist. Obviously, seeing a healthcare provider on a regular and continual basis can get you thru life smiling prettily.
I’d like to recommend the book “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley…check it out.
Please take care of yourself. With care and attention, we all will be seeking a healthier way to live the next time we meet.

Miami Beach Dentist, Dr. Arnold Rothman, Introduces iTero Digital Impression Technology and CAD/CAM System to Deliver Beautiful Smiles
Residents of Miami Beach, FL are now enjoying the benefits of future dental technology thanks to the efforts of a local Miami Beach cosmetic dentist, Dr. Arnold Rothman. iTero digital impression technology in conjunction with CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design) systems are being used at the 4everteeth Dental Center to help patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. Amazingly, all this is achieved with fewer visits. “New technology such as digital impressions and precision implant planning has helped us take restorative dentistry to a new level. At the same time making it easier and more comfortable for our patients,” says Dr. Rothman.
Statistics show that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permemant tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. These numbers go up significantly if you take into account broken, damaged, or discolored teeth. Luckily, patients can count on Dr. Rothman and his highly trained staff to use the best technologies available in dentistry today to restore their natural smile.
The first step in restoring teeth with dental implants, veneers, or dental crowns and bridges, is gaining accurate assessment of the patient's teeth and gums. Usually, this is followed by taking dental impressions and sending the models of the patient's teeth to a dental lab. This can extend the treatment by several weeks and multiple appointments. Dr. Rothman and his team have streamlined this process with the use of iTero, CAD/CAM technologies, and their state-of-the-art dental lab. Now, patients can have digital impressions done quickly and comfortably, and enjoy the benefits of precision made teeth-without the long wait.
“We know our patient’s time is valuable, and being able to minimize their treatment time is wonderful,” says Fatima Miranda, front desk coordinator at Dr. Rothman's office. This technology is a perfect complement to Dr. Rothman's advanced education in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. His extensive experience with dental implants, dental crowns, veneers, Invisalign (invisible braces), teeth whitening combined with top dental technology help him achieve striking results.
Dr. Rothman is proud to be one of the top restorative and cosmetic dentists in Miami Beach. His patients appreciate his compassionate personality and his drive to achieve dental excellence. All his staff members have been working with him for over fifteen years. They are knowledgeable, caring, and treat all their patients like family.

Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

For six decades, the American Dental Association has continuously endorsed the fluoridation of community water supplies and the use of fluoride-containing products as safe and effective measures for preventing tooth decay.The majority of bottled waters on the market do not contain optimal levels (0.7-1.2 ppm) of fluoride. And, some types of home water treatment systems can reduce the fluoride levels in water supplies potentially decreasing the decay-preventive effects of optimally fluoridated water. For more detailed explanations, visit www.ada.org.
