Teeth Whitening Can Upgrade Your Smile

When you smile at yourself in the mirror, are you happy with what reflects back? Do you love your teeth, or do you find them yellow and dull?

Why Many Adults Are Choosing Invisalign to Straighten Their Teeth

Invisalign | Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile plays an integral role in how you feel about yourself and the impression you make on other people. If you don’t feel confident about smiling because your teeth are crooked or overlap, you could tend to hide your teeth when you interact with other people. You might have also considered the toll that wearing braces would take on your self-esteem. It’s hard to make that presentation to business clients wearing metal braces!

However, Invisalign may be just the solution you’re looking for. This innovative orthodontic treatment straightens teeth without using metal brackets and wires, and it is an efficient and reliable treatment. Here’s what you should know about Invisalign ...

The Exciting Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dental Exam | Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’ve had a dental filling in the past, you may remember having or still have metal amalgam fillings. While these fillings were durable, they did not really enhance your smile since the dark grey metal was visible when you would talk or laugh.

Today, composite resin is a tooth-colored material that has replaced the amalgam fillings used in the past. Besides matching your tooth color to create a seamless smile, composite dental fillings in Rockville offer other benefits for your teeth that you may not be aware of.

Composite Fillings Protect More Of Your Natural Tooth

Composite resin is designed to bond directly onto your tooth. Your dentist can remove only the ...

What Type of Toothbrush is Best For Me?

Best tooth brush for me | Rockville, MD | Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

Recently, a patient emailed us and asked what type of toothbrush is best. Of course, every patient is different, and certain patients may need different types of toothbrushes. That being said, my response to this patient would probably be useful for 95% of our patients, so I thought I would share it with you. 


Good Afternoon [NAME REDACTED], I've sent over a couple of links to toothbrushes that I like.

Any of the Oral B products are great (it's what I use), and the variability in pricing is more due to different auxiliary features as opposed to how well the toothbrush actually works. 

Oral-B Pro Electric Toothbrushes

Personally, I don't care ...

Fashion in the Dental Office- Bowties

During dental school, Dr. Liz and I were instructed to wear scrubs every day. Most people that didn’t have abnormally long legs found them quite comfortable. I never had pants the right length, and I always had to choose between exposing my ankles or exposing my midriff. When I was lucky enough to find a pair of scrub pants long enough to accommodate my giraffe legs, the width of the pant legs was such that I looked like a ‘90s era skateboarder in JNCO jeans. I was afraid that a strong gust of wind might blow me halfway down Broad Street in Philadephia!

And during my time in the Air Force, ...

What is causing my bad breath?

Bad breath solutions | Rockville, MD | Gladnick Family & Cosmetic Dentistry

Discovering the cause of bad breath starts with the basics

Every now and then I’ll have friends, family members, or patients that are concerned about bad breath, and they want to know why this is happening. Now, the vast majority of our patients (and family members and friends!) are pretty darn good about brushing twice per day, so it’s not necessarily as simple as saying “you’re not brushing well enough”. But hygiene is always the first place I start when trying to discover the source of the halitosis (bad breath). 

Like I said, brushing twice a day for at least two minutes at a time is the first step. That removes about ...
