Forget the facelift! Get your teeth done instead! This Mother’s Day, Pamper Mom with a Little Help from Loveable Smiles in Richardson

“Forget the facelift! Get your teeth done instead!”

This is the advice from one of our patients who is thrilled with her new smile.

A “Smile Lift” or cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Korenman from Loveable Smiles in Richardson is easy, virtually painless and can have a significant impact on your entire appearance.

For many people, a healthier, more beautiful smile plays a major role in a quality-filled life. It can literally change the way you feel from the inside out.

There are a few options when it comes to a Smile Lift and whitening your teeth is one of the easiest and most immediate ways to help you look younger and more attractive.

When it comes to whitening, Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles is your best resource.laser-teeth-whitening

He provides laser whitening with the EPIC Diode Laser by Biolase, which not only activates the whitening agents that brighten tooth color, but does this so efficiently that treatment time only last 20 – 30 minutes (compared to most other traditional in-office whitening procedures which take an hour or more).

Additionally, a cosmetic smile makeover can usually be completed in as little as one hour to about 10 days from start to finish.

Dr. Korenman assesses several factors to determine your cosmetic dentistry treatment, which in some occasions can also correct certain health and function issues.

Dr. Korenman specializes in treating all of the following dental concerns:

  1. Occlusion, or “bite position” – the nature of your “occlusion” – how your teeth come together when you bite down.Sasha Thankattan 013Sasha Thankattan 002
  2. Tooth Alignment – teeth out of alignment often produce a poor appearance and may cause immediate and long-term problems with your dental health. Misaligned teeth can be corrected or altered in several ways to create a healthier, more attractive smile. Potential solutions include porcelain veneers, and Invisalign clear aligners.
  3. Broken or chipped teeth are unattractive and uncomfortable. They can easily be restored and strengthened to ideal shape and size.
  4. Worn Teeth – teeth that are extremely worn down can be lengthened and reshaped making them stronger and younger looking.
  5. Discolored or Stained Teeth – teeth that have not responded to over-the-counter whitening products or formulas may respond better to and last much longer with specialized treatments provided by Dr. Korenman. Possible treatments include whitening and porcelain veneers.
  6. Diastemas, or “spaces between your teeth”, can also be easily corrected.

How are migraines related to your mouth?

This blog post is the 10th in a series of articles to inform our readers about the connection between your oral health and your overall health.

 

It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body, especially your lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host to other conditions including migraines, Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.

 

What is a migraine headache? migraine

Migraine is a chronic disorder characterized by recurrent moderate to severe headaches, usually affecting one side of the head and accompanied by nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and sound.

 

True migraine headaches are vascular in nature. Inflammation in the mouth and especially in the presence of gum disease and infections affects all the blood vessels.

The link tmj pain 2between migraines and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorder)

  • When the jaws and teeth do not align or work harmoniously together, the patient can have neck and shoulder pain which can lead to headaches, and migraines.
  • The bite/function of the teeth could be negatively impacting the jaw joint.

Teeth that are out of alignment are more difficult to keep clean which can also contribute to gum disease.

 

Gum disease not only leads to severe oral health disorders, but can exacerbate overall health conditions, such as diabetes or respiratory disorders.

 

TMJ and your dentist

If you experience chronic, daily headaches (or even one a month) and no one has been able to resolve your issue, consider seeing Dr. Korenman.

To determine treatment, Dr. Korenman uses diagnostic technology to relax the jaw muscles. Once he knows where the muscles and jaw are most comfortable, he can apply an orthotic (or “mouth guard”) to maintain the comfortable position. For some, establishing an optimal position for long-term comfort may require wearing the orthotic for several weeks to several months.

More about gum disease

80% of people have Gum Disease and DO NOT KNOW IT! There is usually no pain involved for people until extremely late in the degeneration. Many gum problems will go unnoticed until they are diagnosed by a dentist.

 

The good news is that Dr. Korenman and his team are dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of gum disease and they check all their patients for it.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control.

Crowded Teeth and Your Overall Health

This blog post is part of a series of Total Health Dental Care articles to inform our readers about the connection between your oral health and your overall health.

 
It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that poor dental health can severely deteriorate your body.  Today we are discussing the connection between malocclusion (poor “bite” or fitting together of the teeth) and your overall health.

 
Straightening teeth is no longer only for appearance. Straightened teeth contribute directly to your overall health. bite-problems-malocclusions_large

 

What is a Malocclusion?

Malocclusion is often referred to overcrowding or misalignment of your teeth. Specifically, it refers to the relationship between your upper and lower teeth, which should fit together evenly with low force exuded on the jaws and tooth surfaces. If there is a misalignment between the upper and lower teeth, then a number of symptoms can occur:

  • Premature wearing and breaking of teeth which can lead to tooth loss.
  • Chronic headaches
  • Neck and jaw pain
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Pain of facial muscles
  • Joint noises in the jaw
  • Difficulties with biting or chewing

Teeth that are crowded or out of alignment are more difficult to keep clean which can contribute to gum disease.

 
Gum disease not only leads to severe oral health disorders, but can exacerbate overall health conditions, such as diabetes or respiratory disorders.  If left untreated, malocclusion can progress to affect bone, jaw, neck, and even head health.

 
Additionally, the improvements to bite functionality that result from malocclusion treatment can also make regular nutritional intake easier.
