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.

7 year old receives Frenectomy for Upper Lip Tie in Richardson, TX Dallas/Ft. Worth

Today my 7 year old daughter Lauren had an upper lip frenectomy at Loveble Smiles in Richardson.  She has a gap in her two front teeth and it is our hope that by removing the flap of skin under her upper lip, and as her adult teeth come in, that will help to close the gap. She may still have to have some orthodontic work, but by performing the frenectomy now, that will allow for more “shifting” of her teeth as her permanent teeth grow in. IMG_20170410_101639240

Dr. Korenman is known as the “Listening Dentist” and I would also say he is the “Gently Explains” dentist.

He took the time to talk about and demonstrate each step of the procedure to put my daughter at ease. He showed her the cool water that comes out of the Biolase laser and the red “laser light.”

I think all of this explanation and Dr. Korenman’s gentle nature helped my daughter to remain calm during the entire procedure.

It was fascinating to watch and I’m thankful Dr. Korenman has invested in the latest dental technology to be able to conduct these types of services painlessly.IMG_20170410_103625575

Thank you Dr. Korenman for taking great care of my daughter!IMG_20170410_103055831_HDRIMG_20170410_101738969

Laser Away Bad Breath In The Battle of Bacteria In Dallas/Ft. Worth (Richardson)

Do you have bad breath, really bad breath? bad breath photo

It might not be the garlic or onions, coffee or alcohol.

While bad breath can be an indicator of gum disease, sometimes bad breath can be linked to the types of bacteria that dominate the back portion of your tongue.

People plagued by bad breath despite regular brushing, flossing and gargling with mouth wash could benefit from laser therapy.

At Loveable Smiles in Richardson we use our Waterlase i-Plus to painlessly and easily “rejuvenate” the surface of the tongue and eliminate your bad breath.

Bacteria & The Tongue

Some bacteria protect against halitosis, the formal name for really bad breath, while others cause the pungent odor.

One of the reasons people have found great difficulty fighting bad breath is because they don’t know how to reach the areas of the tongue where bacteria live, feed, and reproduce, undisturbed.

The back of the tongue is an ideal breeding ground for anaerobic (oxygen resistant) bacteria.

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles uses a gentle water laser to target bacteria and to eliminate them from the tongue. chronic-bad-breath

After treatment, many people don’t even have morning breath.

Relief from persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth can be can be found by making an appointment to see Dr. Korenman at Loveable Smiles in Richardson, TX at 972-231-0585.

Are Your Dentures Making You Miserable? Learn more about implant supported dentures

Your dentures are uncomfortable.denture-pain

They just float around on your gum tissue.

Unfortunately, denture adhesives quite often don’t work as well as their commercials claim.

Your mouth is literally crippled because you can’t eat!

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson explains that the mouth really isn’t built to support dentures.

However, there is hope.

Dr. Korenman can support those dentures with implants to give them something solid to hold onto and they simply snap into place.

Dental implants supporting your dentures won’t pinch your gums or slip around.

How many implants does it take to support dentures?supported-dentures1

Bone is what holds the implant in place.

If someone has enough jaw structure to support multiple implants, we can utilize 4 – 6 implants.

Some patients have lost more of their jaw bone structure due to gum disease.

The good news is that quite often even if we can use only two implants, that is enough to anchor the denture to give patients a huge improvement in life.

Benefits of Implants Supported Dentures

With enough implant support we can frequently make dentures that do not require a palate so you get your taste back!

Additionally, you’ll be able to feel hot and cold drinks again.

Dental Implants are the best thing to happen in dentistry!

Simply stated, dental implants reconnect people with what they’ve lost. Youth. Self-esteem. Confidence. Function. Happiness. The joy of kissing!

Please call our office for a complimentary consultation to see if you are a candidate for dental implants. 972-231-0585

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles has invested in the advanced technology of the NewTom VG3 Dental CAT-scan which allows him to view an anatomically accurate 3D image of the patient.  This helps him to determine if there is enough bone for long-term function and stability, the location of nerves, and sinuses and helps determine if implants can be placed safely and predictably.

With the advances in implant dentistry now available from Loveable Smiles, you can soon be eating what you want, when you want, and where you want. Your facial muscle tone will be restored. You’ll put 20 years of life back in your smile. You’ll regain the self-confidence and quality of life you lost when you lost your teeth.

The Dangerous Domino Effect of Missing Teeth

A missing tooth has a dangerous domino effect in your mouth.man missing tooth
When natural teeth are lost the damage goes well below the surface of the gums.
• The bone that once supported and surrounded those roots starts to deteriorate painlessly.
• Your other teeth start to shift.
• If you are missing a bottom tooth, the top tooth that chews on it is going to drift down.
• The teeth on either side of a missing tooth will slowly start to lean into that gap.
• When teeth don’t line up right, they don’t have the proper stress distributions, so they are getting overworked and over-stressed.

The bad news is that you don’t feel this domino effect. Unfortunately, over time this misalignment can make it difficult to keep your teeth clean which can contribute to cavities and gum disease as well as breakdown due to the stress imbalances.
Imagine a brick archway.photo brick archway
If you take a brick out of an archway and come back in a year, you won’t be able to put that brick back in its place because everything has settled a bit.
Perhaps the archway hasn’t fallen down, but it’s certainly not going to last as long as the arch with all the bricks in place.
When you have multiple missing teeth, bone resorption occurs even faster, which causes the face to collapse. These changes can become so severe they make the person look many years older than they actually are.
An estimated 30 million American adults live with one or more missing teeth. (That’s one out of every four drivers on the road.)

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles can help with dental implants.

The best way to replace missing teeth permanently is with dental implants.

The advancements in dental implants over the years are life changing. Simply stated, dental implants reconnect people with what they’ve lost. Youth. Self-esteem. Confidence. Function. Happiness. The joy of kissing!
Dental implants look natural, produce a beautiful smile, and allow you to eat, speak and function as you did when your mouth was healthy.
Only 12% of general dentists in the US place implants. 5% of those use the most updated form of technology.

Dr. Korenman has that technology.newtom32
He has invested in NewTom VG3 Dental CAT-scan which allows Dr. Korenman to view an anatomically accurate 3D image of your mouth. It provides the most comprehensive and accurate information required to determine your bone quantity and quality for possible dental implants. If teeth have been missing for some time he can see how much bone loss has occurred and determine what type of bone grafting may be needed.
With Dental CT scanning, implant procedures can be planned in detail before any surgery takes place. This means virtually no surprises when Dr. Korenman performs surgery.
With the advances in implant dentistry now available from Loveable Smiles, you can soon be eating what you want, when you want, and where you want. Your facial muscle tone will be restored.

You’ll put 20 years of life back in your smile. You’ll regain the self-confidence and quality of life you lost when you lost your teeth.
For those who may not have adequate bone strength for implants there are other options to replace missing teeth. The first step in learning your options is to have a complete examination.
