Dental Truths and Myths: Dental Implants Don’t Usually Work and Often Fail

Quite often Dr. Korenman hears the following and very common dental myth:11002620_861074030601651_865004048774769856_n

“Dental Implants don’t work; they usually fail.”

Here are the realities of dental implants:

  • They the best thing to happen in dentistry! 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 are the most predictable dental procedure with a 95% – 98% success rate.  Because implants are made of completely biologically compatible ‘bone-friendly’ titanium material, they naturally heal and integrate with the surrounding tissues. In the few failures that do occur, replacement implants are 95% – 98% successful.

Occasionally, though, dental implant failure can result from dentists and/or patients seeking a cheaper or easier method or solution.

 

Taking “shortcuts” during the diagnostic phase.

Although a two-dimensional panographic x-ray can be sufficient in many types of oral surgery, it is not preferable for planning proper dental implant placement. When placing dental implants, many things that must be considered require a three-dimensional view.

That is why Dr. Korenman has invested in the NewTom VG3 Dental CAT-scan.dental-implant graphic

Benefits of this dental CAT scan include:

  • 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.

Not choosing an experienced dental implant specialist.

Only 12% of general dentists in the US place implants. 5% of those use the most updated form of technology. Dr. Korenman is one of these top dentists. Dr. Korenman’s more than 30 years of experience combined with his advanced training in implant and cosmetic dentistry are important factors in his ability to produce optimal results.

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

Dental implants look natural, produce a beautiful smile, and allow you to eat, speak and function as you did when your mouth was healthy.

For more information about dental implants, please call Loveable Smiles in Richardson at (972) 231-0585 and schedule a complimentary consultation.

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.

Gum Disease Can Be Transmitted To Your Valentine

A Valentine’s warning from Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles: Gum (Periodontal) Disease can be transmitted through kissing.valetine kiss
Gum Disease is an ongoing bacterial infection deep in the gums and bone around your teeth.
Studies show that this bacteria can travel from the pockets around your teeth into your saliva.
Why is Gum Disease So Serious?
• 80% of patients have it and don’t even know it. There is usually no pain involved for people until extremely late in the degeneration.
• Gum Disease is responsible for 75% of all adult tooth loss.
• The #1 cause of death in the world is inflammation and the entire body reacts to this negatively.
• Gum Disease has been shown to increase the risk of Heart Disease, Heart Attack and Stroke.

How Can I Protect My Valentine?
1. Visit Loveable Smiles For Your Total Health Dentistry Appointment – We are dedicated to educating our patients about the mouth/body connection. Specifically, how inflammation in your mouth (gum disease) can lead to heart disease. Please call 972-231-0585
2. Complete all recommended periodontal treatment. If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman can design a treatment plan to help you keep it under control. Studies show that periodontal treatment gets rid of (or greatly reduces) the level of periodontal bacteria in your saliva.sweet tooth
3. Keep your periodontal cleaning appointments. Without periodontal cleanings, some bacteria in the saliva can return to pre-treatment levels within six months. You can significantly reduce your risk of re-infection of yourself and family members through frequent periodontal cleanings.
4. Get your family screened. Since gum problems will go unnoticed until they are diagnosed by a dentist, we highly recommend that family members get screened for gum disease.

Here at Loveable Smiles, we check our patients for Gum Disease on a regular basis.

Please call our office at 972-231-0585 for your Total Health Dental appointment to have a healthy Valentine’s Day!

Top Five Benefits to CEREC One-Visit Crowns

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles shares this:

“The more of your own body parts you get to keep in life, the better you are.”

That is why Dr. Korenman has invested in CEREC Technology which uses ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function.

cerec one visit dentisty logo
These materials closely match the composition of your natural tooth structure.
Dr. Korenman uses several computer assisted technologies to easily produce ceramic dental restorations in less than 2 hours.

Four Benefits of CEREC Technology

1. One Visit! – The best thing about CEREC, is that your teeth can be restored in one visit to the dentist. Your crown is designed and milled right here in our office! A few years ago, you had to visit the dentist 3 or 4 or even more times in order to perform teeth restoration. The technology saves a lot of time for our patients.

2. A Healthcerec photoier Option – A CEREC tooth restoration isn’t just convenient, it is also healthy. Many years ago, dentists had few options to repair decayed and damaged teeth other than amalgam, gold, and other metals. With CEREC, Dr. Korenman uses strong, tooth colored ceramic materials to restore your teeth to their natural strength, beauty, and function. These materials closely match the composition of natural tooth structure.

3. Partial Crowns – Sometimes we just need to replace a part of the tooth. CEREC technology allows us to conserve and save all the rest of the tooth and just build back the part that was broken. We can preserve more of your tooth structure and make “partial crowns.”

4. Strong Teeth – CEREC bonds to your tooth making it stronger in two ways:cerec-crown-design1

1. The ceramic material is stronger and is bonded into place.
2. You are able to keep more of your original tooth.

5. More Accurate – CEREC technology also allows us to avoid the need for those messy impressions in your mouth as we use a very special digital camera to take “digital impressions” that are more accurate, faster and much more pleasant.

Dental Misconception: All Dentists Are Basically the SameDr.K

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.

How is Diabetes related to your mouth?

This blog post is the second 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 Diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.

 

So, how is Diabetes related to your mouth? Diabetes-and-your-oral-health image 2

 

If you have gum disease and your gums bleed, you’re sending bacteria and inflammation by-products through your blood vessels, damaging the vessels and exacerbating your diabetes condition.

 

Additionally, this is how gum disease affects Diabetics:

  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.

 

Your gums are the “foundation of your house” and if the foundation crumbles, the house crumbles with it.*

 

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.   He and his team are also dedicated to educating their patient family about the health of your mouth and the health of your body.

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

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 dentistry saves lives.
