Father’s Day Dental Care Tips for Dads

If you’re the man of the house, you probably think that dental health is the last thing on your priority list. Today’s dads are busy with their careers, kid’s (or grandkid’s) activities and “Honey Do” lists.

However, if you want to be healthy for your family, you must take care of your teeth.Attentive Man

Dr. Mayo of Mayo Clinic has explained, “Having a healthy mouth can add 10 years to your life.”

Medication
Does dad take any kind of heart medication including blood pressure or cholesterol meds?

These medications are notorious for causing dry mouth and inhibiting salivary flow. The flow of saliva is crucial for washing away the germs that cause cavities, so dry mouth is bacteria’s playground!

Dad should have regular checkups to manage his Dry Mouth symptoms, chew sugarless gum and swish with water on a regular basis.

Diabetes
Is dad Diabetic?

The statistics about Diabetes and dental care are startling:diabatic man

  1. Uncontrolled Type II Diabetics are at a higher risk for gum disease.
  2. Severe gum disease can affect blood sugar.
  3. Diabetics have a decreased ability to fight bacteria that invade the gums.
  4. Medication can cause dry mouth which can cause soreness, ulcers, infections and cavities.
  5. A dry mouth can exacerbate the side effects of diabetes, which will then lead to an increase in glucose levels, wreaking havoc on the body.
  6. Having a dry mouth, especially as a diabetic, can lead to rampant tooth decay, which means blood sugar increases as the body tries, and fails, to fight infection.
  7. Sometimes if the blood glucose levels are higher than they should be, the result is dry mouth.

Once again, it’s important to maintain regular dental care appointments to avoid the inflammation, gum disease and decay that can be caused by Diabetes and medication.

Dental Coward
We know dads have a reputation for being the “tough guy” but even “tough guys” can dread visiting the dentist. Many men have had bad experiences at the dentist and understandably avoid dental exams.

Dr. Korenman and his staff understand dental fear and they are dedicated to reversing the trend of miserable dental experiences. He will never cause his patients pain and he listens to all of their concerns.

If it’s been some time or even a long time since dad’s last appointment, we want him to know that we never will scold him or make him feel guilty because we are just glad to see him.

We are here to serve our patients for a healthy future.

Please schedule Dad’s Total Health Dental Appointment by calling 972-231-0585.

How Dr. Larry Korenman & His Staff at Loveable Smiles Provide A Personal Touch in a High-Tech World

Technology is the key to making company operations faster and more accurate. Dentistry is no exception. Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles has invested in the latest dental technology that allows him and his team to see things that normally go undetected. Using the NewTom VG3 Dental CAT-scan Dr. Korenman is able to obtain limitless, 3D views including between the teeth, under the gums, in the bones and even nerve canals and sinuses can be seen. This allows Dr. K to completely diagnose and provide full treatment options.

Patients are now able to clearly see for themselves what is present as Dr. Korenman shows them in understandable terms.Dr. k 3full-size

Here’s how the staff at Loveable Smiles provides a personal & comforting touch along with all their dental technology.

  1. We will NEVER cause you pain. Korenman is dedicated to reversing the trend of miserable dental events. Dr. Korenman and his team encourage their patients to raise their “dental finger” if they are experiencing any discomfort. This is the left index finger and if you raise it, Dr. K will immediately stop work and will do any adjustments necessary to make you more comfortable.
  2. We will always answer our phone. Our dentist, Dr. Larry Korenman even calls all of his patients the evening of their procedure and he provides his cell phone number to them in case they have any issues.
  3. We have a dentist who will listen. Korenman is referred to as the “Listening Dentist.” And patients really appreciate his willingness to listen to their concerns and fears.
  4. Your time is valuable to us. We don’t over-book our schedule and we promise to see you on time.
  5. No surprises. We explain all treatments and fees for prescribed treatments so there are no surprises in the bill.
  6. Healthy Mouth, Healthy Body. At Loveable Smiles, we practice Total Health Dentistry and educate our patients on the “Mouth Body Connection.”

4 Ways Dr. Korenman Makes Your Dental Visit Comfortable

Here at Loveable Smiles in Richardson, TX, we treat people, not teeth. We love and care deeply for our patients, our team, and our profession. It is our sincere objective to provide you with the best dental experience you have ever had!
We are the only dental office to have received the North Texas Business Ethics award from the Dallas Business Journal.smiling-woman-in-dental-chair
Here are 4 ways Dr. Korenman helps his patients have a comfortable dental experience:
1. Sedation – Some patients need sedation. At Loveable Smiles we can arrange for you to use Nitrous oxide, which is a safe and effective mild sedative to help you relax. Ultimately, you will feel calm and comfortable. Other patients may require a stronger sedative as they are extremely anxious and fearful. Whatever your needs are we can accommodate you.
2. Faster Healing with Laser Technology – Dr. Korenman is a part of the very small percentage of dentists (only 1%) who have invested in laser technology. This technology helps you heal faster after your dental procedures by treating dental infections, killing bacteria, regenerating gum tissue and catching cavities before they appear.
3. Massage – We massage your jaws after a dental procedure so that your muscles aren’t sore.
4. Reversing the Anesthesia – We use a “reversal agent” to eliminate the numbing effects of the anesthetic so that you can go about your day, eating and speaking without having a numb mouth.

We invite you to have an enjoyable and painless dental visit at Loveable Smiles in Richardson. Please call 972-231-0585.
