Dental Misconception: All Dentists Are Basically the Same

Dental Misconception: All Dentists Are Basically the SameDr.K

Not true! Every dentist has different training, different knowledge and different skills.

If you have had a bad experience in the past, it does not mean that another dentist cannot help you achieve your goal of a healthy and comfortable mouth and a smile that you can be proud of.

Here are 8 Ways Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles Is Not Your “Average Dentist”

1. Fear/Pain – Dr. Korenman’s #1 goal at Loveable Smiles is that you won’t experience any pain. In fact he is dedicated to reversing the trend of miserable dental events.

2. Total Health Dentistry – Dr. Korenman was very fortunate early in his career to have a mentor dentist to educate him about the mouth/body connection. Dr. Korenman will help you achieve Total Health through dentistry which includes examining your for gum disease. An increasing number of researchers are finding that there’s a link between common health conditions—like diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease—and oral health. It’s becoming clear that the body can affect the health of your mouth and vice versa.

3. Laser Technology – One of the most promising aspects of laser dentistry is improved patient comfort, less damage to surrounding tissues, and better healing. Dr. Korenman is a part of the very small percentage of dentists (only 1%) who have invested in laser technology and provides the finest dental lasers in the industry in his Richardson office.

4. Listening Dentist – He has been referred to as the “Listening Dentist” and takes the time getting to know his patients and their dental goals.

5. Evening Calls – Dr. K calls his patients the evening of their procedure to make sure they are OK.

6. Call Him! – He’ll even give you his cell number in case you have any questions about your procedure.

7. Appointment Time – We respect our patients’ time and see our patients as scheduled. We try very hard to s to make sure we time our procedures accurately. We don’t overbook or double-book our schedule.

8. You Are Never Alone – When you are called for your appointment, we walk you to your treatment room and you are never left alone.

Call our office today to schedule an appointment so we can develop a plan to help YOU achieve Total Health through dentistry. Our patients tell us they cannot believe the difference in their comfort, confidence and enjoyment of life!

We look forward to meeting you! 972-231-0585

Loveable Smiles Purchases BIOLASE NewTom VG3 3D Imaging System: A major advancement in digital dentistry

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson is dedicated to providing his patients with the finest, most cutting-edge and modern dental equipment available. The NewTom VG3 Dental CAT-scan allows Dr. Korenman to view an anatomically accurate 3D image of the patient for the diagnosis and planning of many conditions and procedures such as:vg3-side

  • Dental implants.
  • Wisdom teeth removal.
  • TMJ conditions.
  • Airway assessments.
  • Sinus conditions.
  • Health of the teeth under the gums.
  • Health and location of nerve canals.
  • The contours of your jaw bone and jaw joints.
  • Root canal assessments

This new Dental scan provides Dr. Korenman 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 we 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.

What are the benefits to you, the patient?

  1. Very fast. The scan only takes 18 seconds to gather all the information needed to form a 3D image of your chewing system.
  2. Safety/Low Radiation
    The NewTom VG3 has the least amount of radiation of any Cone-Beam Computed Tomography. CT- produced dental images are obtained with 1/3 less radiation exposure than a full mouth x-ray series.

The dose from a single-jaw dental CT scan is about the same as the dose a patient might receive walking to their car on a sunny Texas day.newtom32

  1. Great Information about you. “You don’t know what you can’t see.”
    The NewTom allows us to see things that normally go undetected. We are 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.

The patients are able to clearly see for themselves, visible, existing physical conditions.

  1. Better planning and communication “Begin with the end in mind”
    Using this technology has improved the way we treat our patients. Seeing what lies under the tissue gives us a better perspective on what treatment will work the best. Being able to see the big picture gives us the opportunity to communicate the various options in a more predictable way.

When you ask for the KAAM special, you will receive this 3D scan, as well as cavity detecting x-rays, a complete exam along with a consultation, completely FREE.

We encourage you to call Loveable Smiles at 972-231-0585 for your appointment.

Painless Parker: Part Show Man, Part Dentist

One of our patients sent us a copy of this ad from 1917 featuring “Painless Parker: Surgical and Mechanical Dentistry.” Painless Parker Dental Ad Image

Painless Parker was, at one point, was more famous than the president!

Painless Parker, a dentist from the turn of the century who was a pro at advertising for performing “painless extractions. ”

He established the first and, hopefully, last sidewalk dental show. He employed a brass band, bespangled women and contortionists who would perform a sideshow to drum up patients. Dr. Parker would be on-hand to speak out on the horrors of tooth decay and then he would ask for volunteers to come forth to sit in his portable dental chair. One of his assistants would volunteer, and the doctor would pretend to extract a tooth without causing pain. He would afterwards display a palmed tooth to the astonished audience.

But back in his office when Dr. Parker pulled a real tooth, he would tap his foot to signal to the band to play and thereby drown out the screams of the unlucky patient.

A couple of other controversial things he did include:Painless Parker Image 2

  • He armed himself with an aqueous solution of cocaine he called “hydrocaine,” Parker shared his message on street corners where he offered painless extractions for 50 cents. He promised that, if the extraction hurt, he would pay patients $5! The first night he extracted 12 teeth and didn’t have to give anyone the money. He found this surprising because, after the seventh patient, he ran out of hydrocaine!
  • The outside of the Flatbush Avenue building that housed his dental office blazed with the following claims:
  • “Proclaimed by Public, Press and Pulpit”;
  • “Painless Parker Is Positively Perfect”;
  • “Pains and Pangs Positively Prevented.”

The dental association was not amused by his false claims. Born Edgar Rudolph Randolph Parker, he legally changed his name to “Painless” in 1915 because of complaints of false advertising.

Luckily, Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson employs truth-in-advertising has been referred to as the “Listening Dentist” who provides “No Pain, No Fear” dental services.

Dr. Korenman has invested in the most advanced dental technology to provide you, the patient with the greatest comfort as well as a pain free dental experience.

6 Ways Loveable Smiles Uses Technology for a Painless Dental Experience

One of the most promising aspects of laser dentistry is improved patient comfort, less damage to surrounding tissues, and better healing.

Dr. Korenman is a part of the very small percentage of dentists (only 1%) who have invested in laser technology and provides the finest dental lasers in the industry in his Richardson office: the WaterLase iPlus™ all tissue laser system and the EPIC Diode Laser by Biolase.

For many people, “pain and discomfort” are no longer associated with the dentist, thanks to the WaterLase iPlus™ laser.

In fact, going to the dentist is fun again!

Here are 6 ways Dr. Korenman uses technology for a painless and effective dental experience:

1. Waterlase is a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Using laser and water spray, Waterlase can perform many procedures without a shot or a drill. The technology helps treat infections, regenerate gum tissue and catch cavities before they appear. Dr. Korenman even uses this amazing laser to help newborns who have tongue tie issues.

2. Additionally, our hygienists use the EPIC Diode Laser by Biolase which promotes healing for gum tissue, can desensitize teeth, doesn’t cause bleeding, kills bacteria and does all of this painlessly. It is also used for teeth whitening, and pain therapy (typically TMJ).

Other high tech procedures we include in our daily routines and have for the last 7 years are:

3. Implant Dentistry – Only 12% of general dentists in the US place implants. 5% of those use the most updated form of technology. And Dr. Korenman is one of these top dentists!

4. Cerec Dentistry- The best thing about CEREC technology, is that your teeth can be restored in one visit. In just a short time, Dr. Korenman can create the perfect crown right down to the color and shade of a natural tooth! Patients are invited to watch how the crown is milled on site and they are fascinated!

5. Zoom Whitening – Beautiful white teeth are one of the easiest and most immediate ways to help you look younger and more attractive. Philips Zoom is the #1 patient-requested professional whitening treatment and has been featured on The Today Show, Entertainment Tonight, EXTRA and Extreme Makeover. Only dental professionals have access to the professional-strength whitening of Philips Zoom.

6. We are a paperless office and use Digital and 2D Imaging. These produce less radiation than traditional x-ray systems.

Come have an enjoyable and painless dental visit! Call Loveable Smiles in Richardson at 972-231-0585.
