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.

Loveable Smiles Patient Experiences Relief from Dry Mouth Thanks to New Laser Therapy

Linda Terveen used to wake up in the middle of the night with her tongue glued to the top of her mouth and her cheeks stuck to her teeth.medication side effect
She would wake up in desperate prayer hoping she’d be able to drink some water and relieve her seriously dry mouth.

During the day, Linda would constantly experience unquenchable thirst.

Linda is like so many others who suffer from a common medication side effect: Dry Mouth.

Dry Mouth is not a disease, but a symptom of a medical disorder and/or most commonly, a side effect of popular medications including:
• Blood pressure medications
• Anti-depression/Anti-Anxiety
• Cholesterol Fighters
• Pain killers
• Antihistamines/Decongestants
• Even neurological medications for treatment of ADHD.

Thanks to a new laser treatment at Loveable Smiles in Richardson, TX, Linda now feels more rested because her sleep is no longer interrupted due to extreme dry mouth.
Her saliva glands have been re-stimulated and now function better to create the moisture that is needed for the mouth, teeth and gums.

Dr. Korenman is the first in Dallas/Ft. Worth to offer this breakthrough laser treatment for Dry Mouth.

This is the first treatment that actually deals with the problem of Dry Mouth itself and not just the symptoms.

The treatment is painless, simple and quick.

If you would like to find out more about this phenomenal treatment, please call us and schedule an appointment to see how we may be able to help you. 972-231-0585

Laser Technology Could Be The Answer To Your Baby’s Feeding Issues

Tongue and lip ties are common causes of slow weight gain in babies and low milk supply in mothers. Additionally, tongue and lip ties can affect jaw and dental development, breathing, chewing, and digestive issues. But what exactly is it?

Tongue tie occurs when the thin piece of skin under the baby’s tongue restricts the tongue’s movement. Lip tie is similar, but as the name suggests, occurs between the upper lip and upper gum line. Both conditions cause the baby to have limited mobility of the tongue and lips. Tongue and lip ties are common, but often go undiagnosed.

Thanks to laser technology, Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles has been helping infants who have trouble nursing due to tongue-tie and lip-tie issues. Known as Laser Frenectomy, the procedure uses cool water to virtually eliminate bleeding, pain, and the risk of infection. In fact, healing in infants is almost instantaneous, and the procedure itself takes less than a minute.

In February, 2015, Dr. Korenman was featured on WFAA Channel 8 to talk about this unique service. We have helped numerous families correct tongue and lip ties in their babies, and Dr. Korenman has even treated his own grandchildren!

Tongue and lip ties interfere with a baby’s ability to receive adequate nourishment and can affect the overall health of your child’s developing mouth. If you suspect your child may have one or both of these issues, we invite you to schedule a consultation at Loveable Smiles in Richardson, TX, where we have the tools and experience to help. Please call us at 972-231-0585, or use our online form to contact us today!

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.

Forget the facelift! Get your teeth done instead! This Mother’s Day, Pamper Mom with a Little Help from Loveable Smiles in Richardson

“Forget the facelift! Get your teeth done instead!”

This is the advice from one of our patients who is thrilled with her new smile.

A “Smile Lift” or cosmetic dentistry with Dr. Korenman from Loveable Smiles in Richardson is easy, virtually painless and can have a significant impact on your entire appearance.

For many people, a healthier, more beautiful smile plays a major role in a quality-filled life. It can literally change the way you feel from the inside out.

There are a few options when it comes to a Smile Lift and whitening your teeth is one of the easiest and most immediate ways to help you look younger and more attractive.

When it comes to whitening, Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles is your best resource.laser-teeth-whitening

He provides laser whitening with the EPIC Diode Laser by Biolase, which not only activates the whitening agents that brighten tooth color, but does this so efficiently that treatment time only last 20 – 30 minutes (compared to most other traditional in-office whitening procedures which take an hour or more).

Additionally, a cosmetic smile makeover can usually be completed in as little as one hour to about 10 days from start to finish.

Dr. Korenman assesses several factors to determine your cosmetic dentistry treatment, which in some occasions can also correct certain health and function issues.

Dr. Korenman specializes in treating all of the following dental concerns:

  1. Occlusion, or “bite position” – the nature of your “occlusion” – how your teeth come together when you bite down.Sasha Thankattan 013Sasha Thankattan 002
  2. Tooth Alignment – teeth out of alignment often produce a poor appearance and may cause immediate and long-term problems with your dental health. Misaligned teeth can be corrected or altered in several ways to create a healthier, more attractive smile. Potential solutions include porcelain veneers, and Invisalign clear aligners.
  3. Broken or chipped teeth are unattractive and uncomfortable. They can easily be restored and strengthened to ideal shape and size.
  4. Worn Teeth – teeth that are extremely worn down can be lengthened and reshaped making them stronger and younger looking.
  5. Discolored or Stained Teeth – teeth that have not responded to over-the-counter whitening products or formulas may respond better to and last much longer with specialized treatments provided by Dr. Korenman. Possible treatments include whitening and porcelain veneers.
  6. Diastemas, or “spaces between your teeth”, can also be easily corrected.

This Mother’s Day, give mom the gift of a bright smile with a Laser Teeth Whitening or Smile Lift gift certificate.  

Call us Today to Order Your Gift Certificate and to Schedule Your Mom a Complimentary Consult Just in Time for Mother’s Day!

American Heart Month: Heart Disease & Dry Mouth

February is American Heart Month and Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson has some important information for you.

If you take medication for heart disease you are probably experiencing a very dangerous side effect: Dry Mouth.heart month cropped

Dry Mouth is a side effect of popular heart medications including:

  • Blood pressure medications
  • Anti-depression/Anti-Anxiety
  • Diuretics
  • Cholesterol medication

The combination of two or more of these medications dramatically increases dry-mouth effects.

If you take any type of heart medication, it’s very important for you to take care of your dental health because Dry Mouth can lead to the following:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease, including bacterial infections.
  • Fungal infections
  • Mouth sores
  • Bad breath

Additionally several theories exist to explain the link between periodontal (gum) disease and heart disease.heart-gum-diseases image

  1. Oral bacteria can affect the heart via the blood stream and then attaching to fatty plaques in the coronary arteries (heart blood vessels) and contributing to clot formation.
  2. Another possibility is that the inflammation caused by periodontal (gum) disease increases plaque buildup, which may contribute to swelling of the arteries.

Researchers have found that people with gum disease are almost twice as likely to suffer from coronary artery disease.

Treating Dry Mouth

While there isn’t any cure for dry mouth, the sooner it gets diagnosed the less damage it does to your teeth.  Here are some tips for treating your dry mouth.

  • Korenman highly recommends Effervess Oral Care products, which can help relieve the symptoms of dry mouth caused by medications. (Available at Loveable Smiles and Amazon.) The line includes toothpaste and a whitening gel.
  • Swish with water in addition to drinking it.
  • Chew sugarless gum.
  • Patients with dry mouth should have regular dental checkups with Dr. Korenman and his staff for evaluation and treatment. Please bring up-to-date medication list with you to your appointment at Loveable Smiles.

If you are experiencing a dry mouth as a side effect of your medication, please call Loveable Smiles at 972-231-0585
