Don’t Let Anxiety Keep You From Getting Implants

April 3, 2020

Oral Conscious Sedation

Millions of Americans cope with dental anxiety. They’ll tense up just thinking about an ordinary exam; the idea of a more complicated procedure, like a dental implant, can send their stress level through the roof. Sedation dentistry from Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in  Richardson TX can get them through it.

Dental implants are actually a rather straightforward procedure. A titanium post (the actual implant) is inserted into the jaw, where it gradually fuses with the bone. Once that happens it becomes a solid foundation for an artificial tooth.

Placing the titanium post may be rather straightforward, but for some patients, the thought is almost unbearable. Sedation can get them through it.

We offer two types: nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.

  • Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, has been used in dentistry for more than one hundred years. It works quickly and wears off quickly with few to no side effects.
  • Oral conscious sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative an hour or so before the procedure. The patient remains awake, but in a deep state of relaxation. They’ll someone to escort them to and from our office.

A dental implant from Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX can make a huge difference in your life, and sedation dentistry can help. We do all we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Schedule an appointment with us today!

In all likelihood, you have scheduled your appointment with us months ahead of time. We respect your time, and try to minimize how long you’re in the waiting room.

Crooked Teeth And Cavities

March 20, 2020

fast braces Richardson

We all would like a beautiful smile with straight white teeth. For one thing, they’re more attractive that way. But did you know that straight teeth tend to be healthier? At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, healthy teeth and gums is the goal for every patients.

Even if you brush and floss your teeth twice a day (and we hope you do), it’s a lot harder to clean teeth when they’re crooked. The plaque that builds up on teeth is a lot harder to clean off on crooked teeth. The reason is simple enough: there are a lot of hard-to-reach places for your toothbrush when teeth overlap, rotate, or are otherwise not in an ideal position.

Flossing is more difficult, too. Waxed floss can help, because it slides more easily between the teeth. But even that won’t get everything.

Fortunately we can straighten teeth, and modern orthodontics has never made it simpler. We offer two options: clear braces from Invisalign, and Six Month Smiles. Both of these can straighten your teeth subtly and effectively.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, we want the best possible dental health for all our patients. Call to schedule an appointment with us today!

Don’t Let A Simple Problem Become Serious

March 13, 2020

canker sore treatment North DallasIn this post from Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry we are going to discuss those small irritations in the mouth that have the potential to become big problems.

Injuries, sores, or inflammation in the mouth can be very uncomfortable. These non-specific irritations, called stomatitis, have many different causes.

They may be caused by cold sores, gum disease, teeth grinding, or biting the inside of your mouth. They may also be connected to broken teeth or braces.

In fact, any inflammation of the membranes in the mouth can be classified as stomatitis. Stomatitis can influence a person’s ability to speak, eat, and even to fall asleep at night.

Fortunately, most of these irritations clear up on their own within a couple of weeks. However, there is a possibility that a viral or bacterial infection can occur. It’s important to let your dentist know about these sores if they don’t clear up after several weeks. Even if there are no complications, your dentist can help you treat the symptoms of stomatitis.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, the dental health of all our patients is out top priority, every single day. We offer complete general and restorative dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Let’s Make A Plan

March 6, 2020

personalized dental treatment plan Richardson

If you’re like most of us, you’d like to have the best smile possible. Have you given much thought to improving yours? At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, we have some thoughts on that. Cosmetic dentistry can make a huge difference, but a great smile comes down to making a plan and sticking to it.

One of the best things you can do for your smile is to brush and floss your teeth every single day. Twice a day is even better! In this way you’ll keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy, and that will shine through every time you smile.

How can cosmetic dentistry help? Cosmetic dentistry is all about using sound dental techniques to make positive changes to your teeth and smile. The most popular techniques include:

  • Teeth whitening. Sure, there are plenty of whitening products available at any grocery store. None of them can match the power of professional whitening.
  • Porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of medical-grade ceramic that we attach to the fronts of your teeth. They’ll cover chips, cracks, gaps, and other imperfections. The difference is startling!
  • Dental Implants. Implants are the ultimate improvement and should be on the plan of anyone missing one or more teeth. One or more titanium posts inserted in your jaw can support a single replacement tooth, a dental bridge, and even dentures.

One last thing to make part of your dental plan: regular checkups at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX. That is a sure-fire way to maintain excellent dental health. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

How Bright Can You Shine?

February 21, 2020

Affordable Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry

Most people notice their teeth getting dull as the years go by. Maybe duller teeth is the least of our worries as we age. On the other hand, who doesn’t want a beautiful smile? At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry, we use cosmetic dentistry to improve smiles every day!

There are lots of teeth whitening choices out there, and over the counter products like whitening strips and toothpastes can be moderately effective. But they cannot match the results you’ll get from professional teeth whitening.

Stained Teeth?

There are two types of tooth stains: extrinsic and intrinsic.

  • Extrensic stains. Extrinsic stains are surface stains. We’re all vulnerable to them, because they’re the type of teeth stains that come from things like coffee, cola, and other beverages. Tobacco is also a major staining agent, whether it’s smoked or chewed.
  • Intrinsic stains. These are stains that are within the enamel of the tooth itself. They are often caused by antibiotics such as tetracycline.

Professional teeth whitening is just one of the cosmetic dentistry services we offer at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

Dental Questions? We Have Answers.

February 14, 2020

Garland cosmetic dental and tooth implants

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, we strive for excellence in dentistry every day. Providing the best possible dental care goes beyond cleanings and exams. We like patients who ask a lot of questions, because that tells us they are taking a strong interest in their dental health.

Frequently Asked Questions

One of the questions we’re often asked is whether it’s really necessary to have a cleaning and checkup every six months. Our short answer is, yes! But a better answer would include the time-honored truth that prevention is the best medicine.

Every appointment includes a thorough cleaning by a hygienist. Then the dentist examines your teeth and gums, looking for any new cavities and signs of gum disease. Every checkup also includes a screening for oral cancer.

Sometimes we need to see patients more frequently. Someone with gum disease, or who is undergoing orthodontic treatment, should have appointments more often than twice a year. We determine that on a case-by-case basis.

More Questions

Patients often wonder how long a filling will last. Some people think they’ll last a lifetime, but unfortunately that is not usually the case. Fillings can break down or become loose over time. If that happens, decay can get into the area around it and cause problems. You can extend the life of any restoration with good oral hygiene at home. If you have any questions about what that means, don’t hesitate to ask.

What kind of toothbrush is best? This is among the most-asked questions for any dentist. Manual and electric toothbrushes, used properly, both do an excellent job. We recommend soft bristles, with mixed bristle heights and angles. They do a better job getting between the teeth.

To really get between the teeth, we also recommend daily flossing. String floss is best, but whether it’s waxed or unwaxed, flavored or not, or wide dental tape is up to you.

And More!

When it comes to toothpaste, we recommend one that has the American Dental Association Seal of Acceptance. That means it contains fluoride, which strengthens and protects your teeth.

These are just some of the common questions we get from our patients at Richardson Dentist in Richardson TX. Have we missed anything you’ve wondered about? Never hesitate to bring your questions to your checkup. We offer general and restorative dentistry. Schedule your next appointment today.

Fluoride Treatments: Not Just For Kids

February 7, 2020

fluoride treatment Richardson

You seldom hear the word “toothpaste” without it being preceded by “fluoride.” Fluoride toothpaste is ubiquitous for good reason. Along with regular checkups at Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, fluoride helps you keep your teeth healthy and strong.

Fluoride is an important mineral that helps your teeth stay strong. It is found in some foods and water and makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities. Fluoride helps teeth by making them stronger and more resistant to the harmful acid that is formed by bacteria.

The fluoride used in in-office treatments comes in either a gel or foam, and may be available in several flavors. The fluoride is applied directly to teeth through the use of a plastic dental tray that fits over your teeth. The tray is kept in your mouth for just a few minutes. Fluoride treatments are a fairly simple and painless way to strengthen your teeth and preserve an attractive smile.

At Richardson Cosmetic Dentistry in Richardson TX, fluoride treatments help you maintain good dental health. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
