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.

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.

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.

Women & Gum Disease – How Your Gums Change in Various Stages of Life

There is an important connection between a woman’s oral health and her overall health. women-brushing-01

It’s called the “Mouth-Body Connection,” and it means that certain dental conditions like gum disease, can severely deteriorate her body, especially her lungs and heart, and it can also lead to a host to other conditions including Alzheimer’s disease and even some Cancers.

Hormonal fluctuations throughout a woman’s life, including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause, can affect many tissues, including gum tissue.

Throughout her life cycle, women should be aware of these hormonal and oral/overall health connections. It’s very important for women to maintain their dental care appointments so that their dentists can check them for gum disease and other concerning dental issues.

Oral birth control: Inflamed gums are a common side effect of taking the pill. Dr. Korenman and his staff can give you suggestions to protect your gums and teeth.

Pregnancy: There is a link between uncontrolled gum disease (and the mom may not even know she has gum disease) and pregnancy complications such as premature labor and preeclampsia (rise in blood pressure). pregnancy and dental health

Additionally 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. Women are encouraged to call their dentist for an appointment as soon as they learn they are pregnant.

Menopause: During menopause, changing hormone levels can cause various mucus membranes to dry out including salivary glands, often leaving menopausal and postmenopausal women with a persistent feeling of dryness in the mouth. Other oral changes that may occur during menopause are red or inflamed gums, mouth sores, bad breath, burning sensations, and altered taste, especially salty, peppery or sour.

The health of your mouth can be a sign of your body’s health. Mouth problems are not just cavities, toothaches, and crooked or stained teeth. Many diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, and some cancers are linked with oral health problems. Regular dental exams help you maintain good oral health and avoid related health problems.

At Loveable Smiles, we practice Total Health Dentistry and educate our patients on the “Mouth Body Connection.” Additionally, we check all our patients for gum disease.

If you are diagnosed with gum disease, Dr. Korenman will design a treatment plan to help you get it under control and even more importantly, to keep it maintained in a healthy state.

We urge you to tell your mom to call Loveable Smiles for your Total Health Dental Care appointment at 972-231-0585.

Happy Mother’s Day from Loveable Smiles in Richardson!

Affordable & Successful Laser Frenectomy for Tongue Tie & Lip Tie in Dallas, TX & Richardson, TX

Thanks to laser technology, Dr. Larry Korenman of Loveable Smiles in Richardson, TX has been helping infants who have trouble nursing due to tongue-tie and lip-tie issues.

Baby Neilah, 7 weeks old, was recently in the office to have a frenectomy for both her lip and tongue ties.Neilah- 7 months old

Before her frenectomy, Neilah’s mom, Hillary, shares the following:

  • She had a lot of discomfort with nursing.
  • She could hear “clicking” whenever Neilah nursed and a lot of milk would leak out of the corner of her baby’s mouth.
  • Neilah seemed to be swallowing a lot of air and experienced a lot of gassy, abdominal pain.

During the laser procedure, Hillary was able to swaddle her baby in a blanket and hold her during the entire procedure, which lasted about 1 minute.

Hillary shares that Dr. Korenman and his staff made the procedure very easy. She is grateful that the office hours at Loveable Smiles in Richardson were convenient and Dr. K’s fees were more reasonable that other providers she had researched.

After her laser procedure to fix her lip and tongue ties, Hillary reports that Baby Neilah is doing great! There is no clicking and she’s eating more when she nurses. Baby Neilah hasn’t been as fussy since the procedure and mom thinks this is due to Neilah not swallowing so much air when she nurses.

The Laser Frenectomy at Loveable Smiles in Richardson uses cool water during the procedure. There is virtually no bleeding, no pain, no risk of infection and the healing is almost instantaneous for infants. The procedure takes less than 1 minute.

Dr. Korenman was featured on WFAA Channel 8 about the service.

Missing Teeth & Bone Loss Will Age You

When teeth are lost the damage goes well below the surface of the gums.dental implant before after face structure

The bone that once supported and surrounded the roots of those teeth starts to deteriorate painlessly.

When bone resorption occurs, it causes the face to collapse. These changes can become so severe they make the person look many years older than they actually are.

The more missing teeth, the quicker and more severe the bone loss. For those missing all or most of their natural teeth, bone loss can become so severe within just a few years it can become difficult to wear removable devices such as partials and dentures. There is simply little bone left to support them.

Dental Implants: A Solid & Permanent Foundation

It’s so vital to replace the tooth root with a dental implant which becomes integrated in the bone, and thus, preserves it.

The bone forms a bond to the implants which then function as natural tooth roots – providing a solid and permanent foundation for biting and chewing.

The implants have no sensation in your mouth, you do not notice their presence at all and your mouth feels very natural and comfortable.

Dr. Korenman of Loveable Smiles has invested in the advanced technology of a dental CAT-scan x-ray machine that provides 3-D information including whether 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.

Additionally:11002620_861074030601651_865004048774769856_n

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