Time To Upgrade Your Smile?

September 15, 2017

Cosmetic Dentistry Options Have you thought about upgrading your smile? Cosmetic dentistry offers many remarkable possibilities for Richardson residents.

The quickest and least invasive procedure is light teeth whitening. The results are dramatic and teeth whitening side effects are minimal.

If your teeth are slightly crooked, but require no orthodontic work, porcelain veneers could be the answer. Porcelain teeth veneers are translucent, wafer-thin covers that are permanently attached to the front of teeth, correcting chips and stains. Prepless veneers do not require the removal of tooth structure.

If your teeth are more than slightly crooked, it’s not too late for braces. Richardson dental patients of all ages are undergoing orthodontic treatment and achieving fantastic results. The newest braces are less noticeable, more comfortable and bring teeth into alignment much faster than old-school metal braces.

Has gum recession caused the metal base of an old crown to be visible? Soft tissue grafts and/or crown replacement can correct this problem.

Are you missing one or more teeth? One of the best tooth replacement options is a dental implant. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

Can you envision yourself with a dental makeover?

Let Your Smile Show Who You Really Are

September 8, 2017

 smile makeover

Let’s talk about the power of a smile.

A smile communicates your emotions more precisely than words can ever do. The absence of a smile also sends a clear message. But what if you want to smile but the troubles with your teeth prevent you? This is a frustrating condition for many Richardson people both young and old.

You may have a warm and engaging personality, but no one can see that personality without a smile. If you are usually too embarrassed about your teeth to smile, this post is for you.

Do you ever consider how your close-lipped facial expressions impact other people’s perceptions of you? Do you think it’s possible that your demeanor causes people to get the wrong impression? Perhaps they think you are shy, distant, timid, or unhappy. These adjectives are probably completely off-base – but without a smile, it’s hard to tell. Especially when people meet you for the first time.

Do you think your unattractive smile has affected your career? How about your personal relationships? If you are not happy with the way your teeth look, you have probably considered cosmetic dentistry.

This begs the question: “What has prevented you from seeking a smile makeover?” Is it the cost? Fear that it’s going to be painful? Doubts about whether it will really work? Worry that you will have to take work off for several appointments? Maybe you are just too embarrassed to let anyone look in your mouth.

If you are still reading this post, I suspect you are on the fence regarding this life-changing metamorphosis. You can’t make a wise choice unless you have the important facts, and I want to provide them to you.

Knowledge is power. I invite you to come in for a free, informational smile makeover consultation. I want to meet with you about all the concerns I mentioned previously and any others you may have. When I carry out a smile makeover for someone who has been embarrased to smile for years, it changes that person’s life. Because of advanced procedures, instruments, lab processes, and materials, it’s a great time to be a cosmetic dentist and an even better time to get a smile makeover at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry-Kerry M. Goad, DDS in Richardson.

The key to a smile transformation that transcends what is technically adequate to the type of remarkable smile that is greater than the sum of its parts is the skill of the dentist. To reach the level of perfection that you deserve, a celebrated smile makeover dentist must have the power to use all these things in combination with rare artistic skill.

Whew! That’s a lot of words. And, as mentioned at the beginning of this post, we know that words cannot convey what a compelling smile can. Let me show you pictures of Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry-Kerry M. Goad, DDS smile makeover patients. Then you will understand. (After all, a picture is worth – how many words?)

I invite you to call me, Dr. Kerry M. Goad, today at 972-535-4608.

Save Your Breath

September 1, 2017

bad breath treatments Richardson

Today’s Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry blog post focuses on a problem experienced by many people – bad breath.

Bad breath, or halitosis, has several causes. The most common cause is improper oral hygiene. Often, halitosis ensues midday arising from the inability to brush teeth between meals. Small food fragments on the teeth, gums, and tongue grow bacteria. The wastes of the bacteria and decay of the food create a sulfur compound, which emits the unpleasant odor. Food particles, bacteria, and sulfuric gas all need to be removed to eliminate bad breath caused by poor oral hygiene.

While poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of halitosis, many factors can contribute to or worsen the problem. The best remedy is consistent, thorough brushing and flossing, but other actions might also be required depending on the cause(s).

For example, a salivary gland trouble or certain medications can cause dry mouth. Saliva moistens the teeth and gums, clearing away odiferous dead cells. Saliva also neutralizes the ever-present acids on the tongue, gums, and cheeks. Limiting caffeine, chewing sugar-free gum, using OTC saliva substitutes, and using a humidifier can add moisture to your mouth.

Most Common Causes of Bad Breath:

Poor oral hygiene
Inability to brush between meals
Gum disease or tooth decay
Smoking
Braces
An infected root canal
Diabetes
Kidney failure
Liver problems
Infection
Dry mouth (Xerostomia)
Dieting
Age
Crooked teeth
Ear, nose, throat issues
Tonsil issues
Constant breathing through the mouth
Specific foods: garlic, onions, horseradish, etc.
Some prescription medications
Ill-fitting dentures

To Minimize or Prevent Bad Breath:

Go to the dentist twice a year for professional dental cleanings
Brush teeth, tongue, gums, and roof of the mouth
Use a tongue spray or scraper
Use antimicrobial mouth rinse
Chew sugarless gum
Brush and floss after each meal
Drink plenty of water (A dry mouth is conducive to bacteria growth)
Replace your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months
Have a toothbrush and floss available when you are out
Talk to your doctor or dentist if bad breath continues despite proper oral hygiene

Remember, the best defense to bad breath is a good dental care routine – brushing, flossing, and regular visits with your dentist.
If you struggle with bad breath regardless of vigilant oral hygiene, ask your dentist for help in identifying the source. It may be an issue outside of the oral cavity. If this is the case, your dentist may refer you to your family physician or a specialist.

If you don’t have a regular dentist or are not happy with your current one, we invite you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Goad. Dr. Goad has been serving patients in the North Dallas area since 1978. Our compassionate team of dental professionals provides the full spectrum of general and cosmetic dental services including cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry and dental implants.

Treat Your Smile To A Healthy Diet

August 17, 2017

experienced family dentist Richardson

Proper nutrition can benefit you in a number of ways; increased energy, improved immunity, glowing skin, mental clarity, and a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. How often, however, do you think about how your diet influences your oral health?

Your diet can influence your risk of cavities, enamel health, and gum condition. Healthy foods provide an environment that can prevent inflammation and infection. Vegetables, fruits, legumes, and nuts are the prime choices for oral health. Calcium-fortified beverages, milk and other dairy products provide vitamins, minerals, and calcium that helps with keeping teeth, bones, and gums healthy. Eating crispy fruits and vegetables, such as apples and celery, will help clean your teeth and gums.

A healthy diet contains all the important vitamins and minerals, and the most important mineral for teeth is fluoride – especially for children. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in, therefore adequate fluoride is critical.

Don’t forget, however, that too much fluoride is detrimental. Dr. Goad can advise you on the specific dosage of fluoride for your child, taking into account whether your municipal water is fluoridated.

Even though adult teeth have already formed, fluoride assists in re-mineralizing weakened enamel to a degree. It is applied to teeth during extensive dental cleanings and daily with fluoride toothpaste.

Bacteria that causes enamel-destroying plaque love a steady diet of sugar – from soda, candy, and even fruit juices. When enamel wears away, the teeth become vulnerable to decay, cracks, and discoloration.

Sugary foods that are especially harmful are those that get trapped in the spaces between teeth and the tiny pits and cracks in the molars. Candies that are chewy or hard can lodge in these spaces and allow for the bad sugar to have direct contact with enamel until brushing occurs. Sticky candy can also damage braces and retainers. More than one retainer has fallen prey to sticky caramel or hard taffy.

Be sure to brush after each meal and before bed. In addition, remember to floss or use a water irrigating method to dislodge food particles trapped in spaces. By eating well, brushing properly, flossing regularly, and avoiding foods that stick to your teeth, you can have a beautiful smile for life.

Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry has been serving the North Dallas area, including Plano, Lake Highlands, and Garland, since 1978. We offer innovative cosmetic dentistry services, such as veneers, teeth whitening and cosmetic dental smile makeovers. If you have questions about your dental health, or need to schedule a check-up, please contact us at 972-535-4608 to schedule a consultation.

What’s New In Dentistry?

July 14, 2017

Advanced Dentistry in Richardson The world of dentistry continues to advance at a rapid pace. If you have visited your Richardson dentist lately, you have probably noticed some things that make your visit more comfortable, such as the ability to watch TV or listen to music while receiving treatment. Many Garland dentistry patients welcome oral conscious sedation to reduce or eliminate pain.

What may not be as obvious are the advances in techniques, tools and materials. Top Richardson dentists now use digital computer imaging which is safer than traditional x-rays. Dental technicians can store, retrieve and transmit digital images much easier than was possible with traditional x-ray film.

The use of lasers has also changed the face of dentistry. Laser surgery requires less anesthesia, minimizes swelling, and protects surrounding tissue. Garland family dentists use lasers for detecting and treating cavities and dental technicians use them for the curing of restorative materials.

Another exciting development in cosmetic dentistry is the CAD-CAM technology that allows Lake Highlands cosmetic dentists to perform restorations in a single visit. The types of procedures that can be completed in one visit include crowns, fillings, inlays, onlays and veneers.

If you need a thorough exam, expert dental cleaning, or want to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry, call Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry at 972-535-4608 to schedule a consultation. During your consultation, you can see before and after photos of some of our smile makeover patients. We would love to help you achieve the smile you deserve, and we have the tools, experience and technology to make that happen- Dr. Kerry Goad

6 Reasons To Ditch Your Dentures For Dental Implants

July 7, 2017

Implant dentures Richardson

For thousands of years, dentures have been allowing people to chew foods harder than mashed bananas and flash some teeth when they smile. However, Richardson denture wearers know how unstable, irritating, embarrassing, and inconvenient they can be.

Today, Garland dental patients with missing teeth are fortunate to have a tooth replacement choice that is far better than both traditional dentures and dental bridges. A tooth implant provides the total package, so to speak. An implant replaces the visible part of the tooth and – this is key – also the root.

The dental implant process works like this: A super-strong titanium post is anchored directly into the jawbone. An abutment is then attached to the post. Finally, a crown or denture is attached to the abutment. Tooth implants provide the following benefits:

Stability – Implants don’t move around in your mouth.  This permits normal chewing, swallowing, and speech.
Bone Retention – The post prevents the bone loss that almost always occurs after a tooth is extracted
Dental implants prevent jaw muscle dysfunction that can occur when remaining teeth are forced to compensate for missing teeth
Tooth implants eliminate gum irritation caused by dentures
No need for denture relines
No denture adhesive needed (Remember, they are anchored in your jawbone just like natural teeth!)

Richardson dental implant patients with one or two missing teeth can replace each missing tooth with a permanent implant. Richardson dental patients with significant tooth loss are usually best served with an implant-anchored denture.

If you want more information about tooth implant costs in Richardson or cosmetic dental financing, call Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry at 972-535-4608. Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry is a full-service general and cosmetic dental practice dedicated to preventative dental care. We offer:
