Online Dental Business

August 9th, 2013 12:47 am

Online dental marketing can be a way to get the news of your dental clinic out to the people who may use the services there. Opening a new dental clinic in a town can be risky if you do not have an established client list of patients that are willing to come to your new location. The online dental marketing will allow you to increase your patient numbers easily.

With online dental marketing you can demonstrate what procedures your clinic is capable of performing by using still shots of patients you have already worked on. You can get permission from you patients and show before and after shots of their teeth and describe what was wrong with them and what you did to correct them.

Online dental marketing can allow you to give instructional information to parents of children on the proper way they should care for their teeth, their braces, and other oral health concerns. These instructional articles will cause many of the parents to book an appointment with your offices because they will recognize the fact that you cared enough to include free instructions that they found useful.

Marketing in this manner will require you to establish a website and to keep that website up and running. You will need to have articles and informational blogs that use the most frequently chosen keywords for a dental provider.

If you deal mainly with children then you need to link your pages to other pages that deal with the oral health and development of children. By doing this you will improve your search engine positioning because you will appear to be more of an authority when the spiders come by to spy on your content. Having the spiders discover that other popular pages are linked to you will let them report their findings so that when someone needs a dentist in your area the search engine thinks your office is the best one to recommend.

Most dental clinics find the online advertising to be a new means of getting there message out to patients. More and more people do almost everything from their smart phones and computers so it makes sense to have a website dedicated to showing the offices you have and the procedures you specialize in.

You can have patients go to the website and leave honest reviews of your services and your staff. Being able to see what your patients think of the care you give them will help others to decide if you might be the right dentist for them.

You should have a map with driving instructions in case a patient has difficulty finding your office. You should have the ability for the people to contact your administrator in the office for scheduling concerns, and you should have all contact numbers listed plainly on the webpages.

What is Gingivitis?

June 1st, 2013 3:02 am

Gingivitis is the very beginning stage of gum disease. In this stage the gums are slightly inflamed and perhaps even bleed a little bit during brushing and flossing. Healthy gums do not normally bleed. If you see any bleeding at all upon brushing and flossing, there is a strong possibility that you are seeing the beginning stages of this disease. However, it is even possible that you are well beyond this stage.

Daily brushing and flossing can help to reduce the build up of plaque, but even rigorous hygiene and nutrition may not remove all traces of it. If plaque is not completely removed it produces toxins or poisons that will go on to irritate gum tissue and cause gingivitis. If left untreated gingivitis can become a serious periodontal matter and can cause permanent damage to both the teeth and jaw.

How can I tell if I have gingivitis?
The tell-tale symptoms indicating the presence of gingivitis include swollen, tender gums that tend to bleed easily when you brush. Another indication of gum disease is that hums have already receded from your teeth – leaving the teeth with a somewhat elongated appearance. After that the gum disease can go on to create pockets that form between the teeth and gums, and these pockets are where plaque and food residual collect. Many sufferers experience recurring bad breath or an awful taste in their mouths, even if the disease it not too advanced.

What can I do to prevent gingivitis?
It has probably been inculcated into us by our parents from our earliest recollections, but good and regular oral hygiene is absolutely essential in preventing teeth and gum disease. Regular brushing soon after each and every meal together with proper flossing may seem laborious, but it is important. A professional cleaning is also very important. This is because once plaque has built up and hardened (a condition referred to as tartar) only a dentist can effectively remove it.

Ways to help stop gingivitis before it develops:

• Correct brushing and flossing. This is proven to control plaque and the build up of tartar.
• Eating the right foods. A proper diet will ensure effective nutrition for your teeth and jawbone.
• Avoiding “Contraband.” Any form of smoking should be avoided.
• Seeing your Dentist. Your dentist is your greatest friend when it comes to oral well being, so make sure you make a habit of visiting him or her regularly.
