Replace Your Silver Fillings at Loveable Smiles in Richardson, TX

Teeth and fillings expand and contract at different rates.  Over many years of ingesting hot and then cold food and drink, silver fillings experience expansion and contraction. The contraction creates openings between the tooth and the filling material. The expansion can contribute to the tooth cracking or worse, splitting.broken_filling_1

Dr. Korenman has even seen a large part of a tooth break off with the metal filling still completely intact.

Additionally, when you chew and your teeth come together there’s a lot of pressure and force at work, and the metal filling takes the brunt of that pressure…which can also lead to the tooth being fractured much like a log being split.

When the seal between the tooth and the filling breaks down, food particles and decay-causing bacteria work their way between the worn filling and the tooth. These bacteria cannot be removed with a toothbrush or by any other means, and decay may develop along the edge of the filling or underneath it.

The most frustrating part of all this is that it happens painlessly with very few signs of a problem.

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.

He and his team can safely and effectively remove your silver fillings and restore your teeth to their their natural strength, beauty, and function.

How often should you see your hygienist for dental cleanings?

October is National Dental Hygiene Month.

How often should you see your hygienist for dental cleanings?  Some people may say that you should go every six months, some people may say every 3-4 months, and others may only visit the dental office when they are experiencing pain.

So, which one is right for you?

The answer is not as black and white as you may think…National Dental Hygiene Month image

Dental cleaning frequency is completely dependent upon the patient and their individual needs.

It is the same concept as when someone goes to physical therapy or rehab and the therapist creates a custom program for each individual in order to get them back to health (there is no blanket solution).

Patients who have seen the dentist regularly and practice good oral home care may only need to have a dental cleaning every six months because they have minimal build up and little to no bleeding in the gums.  On the other hand, some patients who have not seen the dentist regularly and/or do not practice good oral home care may need to have their teeth cleaned every 3 to 4 months because they have moderate to severe build up and bleeding in the gums or they have been previously diagnosed with periodontal disease (loss of bone around the teeth).

The goal is to get your teeth cleaned frequently enough to keep the bacterial plaque build up at a minimal level so that either healing can occur or so that the tissues can stay in an optimum state of health.

In order to see what frequency is right for you, you should see your hygienist and discuss what treatment cycle will give your teeth and gums the best outcome.

Our Dental Hygienist Shares the Benefits of Waterpik Water Flosser

Do you like to floss your teeth?

If you’re like most Americans, you probably don’t…at least not daily. waterpik-cordless-plus-water-flosser-wp-450-white

According to a 2016 study, only 30% of the population flosses daily!

Why do you think that is?

Could it be that it takes too long (approx. 1 min.) or maybe you feel like you’re just not good at it?

I hear both of these reasons from patients every day and the good news is that I know something that can help you without using floss!

I always recommend that my “non-flossing” patients use a Waterpik water flosser, specifically the cordless model with the pocket tip.

With the cordless model you can charge the device and then just keep it in your shower (using it in the shower makes it less messy).

To properly use it all you need to do is fill it with water, turn it on, and then trace lightly around the gumline…that’s it!!! waterpik pocket tip

It is relatively easy to make the Waterpik part of your shower routine which will help you clean between your teeth on a more regular basis.

Doing this solves both of the problems patients mention to me daily.

It takes up very little time (just long enough for you to let your conditioner set in) and it’s super easy to use.

Most of my patients love their Waterpik!

If you or anyone you know has questions about where to find on or what attachments to get, please call Loveable Smiles at 972-231-0585.

Mouth Restoration Helps Grandson Move Forward In Life Again

It’s been said that a grandchild fills a space in the heart that you never knew was empty. grandchildren message

This is certainly true for one of our patients who has helped her grandson with extensive dental work here at Loveable Smiles. A full mouth restoration for her grandson has been life changing for this young man.

To protect identities, we’ll refer to this precious grandmother as J.P.

It had been such a long time since J.P.’s grandson had been to the dentist, that he was afraid and embarrassed to go.

Additionally, due to his dental situation, he had a hard time eating and was embarrassed by his mouth.

He didn’t smile, he didn’t show his teeth and J.P. says her grandson’s lack of self-confidence was the cause of his struggle to find direction and move forward in life.

J.P. had heard that Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles was the one to see if you had a fear of dentists. He’s known for his is dedication to reversing the trend of miserable dental events.

J.P. made an appointment for her grandson and she admits she was nervous about how he would react to the experience.

Once J.P.’s grandson met Dr. Korenman, she says he felt comfortable and felt a connection with not only the dentist, but the entire staff.Dream Big, Set Goals, Take Action

J.P. shares, “Everyone at Loveable Smiles was very warm and very compassionate. We both felt comfortable immediately. Dr. Korenman has the technology and the skills – the whole package to help his patients.”

Despite the 3-hour drive, J.P.’s grandson never wavered in his commitment to maintaining the various appointments that were needed to complete his dental work.

J.P. proudly reports that this dental work has been life changing for her grandson. He’s moving forward in life again. He’s making plans, meeting goals and living on his own.

Best of all, his beautiful smile has returned. It’s the same smile J.P. remembers from when her grandson was a young boy of 8.

If you are someone you love has a fear of dentists, Dr. Korenman 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 your last appointment, we want you to know that we never will scold you or make you feel guilty about that because we are just glad to see you.

We are here to serve you for a healthy future.

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

Pregnant in Dallas? Call Your Dentist

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.

 

If you are pregnant, no doubt you are constantly bombarded with tips, advice and opinions.

 

Here is a tip to safeguard the health of your baby; please, go see your dentist. Congrats!For the health of your baby, call your dentist!

 

The bacteria that cause gum disease may increase a mom’s risk for delivering prematurely. (Mom, you may not even know you have gum disease. Yes, those hormones can also affect your gums!)

 

Gum Disease & Developing Babies

There is a link between uncontrolled gum disease (once again, mom may not even know she has gum disease) and pregnancy complications such as premature labor and preeclampsia (rise in blood pressure).

 

A study exploring the possible link between gum disease and preeclampsia found that 50% of the placentas from women with preeclampsia were positive for one or more gum disease pathogens.

 

Scientists believe these infections cause a rapid increase in certain fluids in the body that, in turn, induce labor. It’s not necessarily the infection itself, but the body’s response to the infection that causes the premature birth.

 

Mom’s Hormones & Tooth Decay

Pregnancy causes hormonal changes that increase the risk of developing gum disease, which can affect the health of their babies.Pregnant_ Please call your dentist!

 

Studies have shown that bacteria responsible for tooth decay are passed from the mother to the child in utero. The more frequently you give in to the craving for sugary snacks, the greater the chance of developing tooth decay.

 

Additionally, pregnant women with acid reflux are also at a greater risk of tooth erosion and periodontal problems as the acid dissolves away the protective coating of teeth (enamel) leaving them weakened and at a very high risk of needing extensive (and expensive) restorations.

 

Dr. Korenman recommends that women visit his office as soon as they learn or their pregnancy.   Dr. Korenman and his team will test for any health problems that might affect your baby.

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

For the health of your unborn baby, we urge you to call Loveable Smiles for your Total Health Dental Care appointment at 972-231-0585.

This is just one of many examples of how we treat people, not just teeth.
