Gum Health Affects Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes

gum disease increases diabetes risk Dallas

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we are concerned not only with the your dental health, but also with how it influences your overall physical health and well-being.

In this post we look at the connection between diabetes and dental health. Scientists have known for quite some time that people with diabetes have higher rates of gum disease. Maintaining proper blood glucose levels is the key to minimizing the risk of gum disease and related dilemmas for those affected.

Additional research is exploring the reverse relationship: that is, whether poor oral health increases the risk of developing diabetes. Findings from a long-term study suggests that it does.

Additional trials are exploring how tooth and gum health jolts the ability of diabetics to manage the disease.

If you have diabetes, it is important that you have regular dental checkups and are dedicated to daily oral hygiene, proper nutrition, and other important practices. Your success in controlling your blood glucose levels will improve your oral health and vice-versa.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas the well-being of all our patients is important to us.

How Do You Measure Success?

Affordable North Dallas Tooth Bleaching

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, the dental health of our patients is our number one priority each and every day. We hope that goes without saying!

How do you measure dental success? A check-up with no cavities? A perfect smile? A crown that looks as natural as the surrounding teeth?

It could mean all those things and many more.

For a child, dental success could be defined as a childhood free of cavities, learning daily dental hygiene practices, and gaining an understanding of why it’s vital.

For a young adult woman with tetracycline stains but otherwise healthy teeth, dental success may be as simple as in-office teeth whitening.

For a middle-aged man who always neglected his teeth, dental success could be defined as restorative dentistry that stabilizes his condition and improves his oral health.

Consider someone with several missing teeth who can only eat soft foods. Dental success might mean dental implants that make it possible to eat things like steak.

What are your goals for your smile? What is the current state of your oral health?

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, our goal is your complete satisfaction. We’ve improved the dental health of people in Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood, who come to our practice for general and restorative dentistry, and so much more.

3 Reliable Steps To Find The Best Dallas, Texas Dentist

Dallas affordable family dentist

Looking for a new dentist? Maybe you’re new in town, or maybe you’re just looking for a change. Whatever the reason, Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas has some suggestions you may find useful.

It isn’t a decision you want to take lightly. Ideally you should establish a relationship that you can count on for years to come. Asking your family and friends is a tried-and-true method, but since that’s one of the first things you’re likely to think of, we’ll share a few other ideas.

  • If you’re moving, ask your current dentist for a recommendation in your new town.
  • Ask your physician
  • Try the local or state dental society.

Establish a short list of potential new dentists. From there, call or visit each one before making up your mind. Be sure to read online reviews, too, to see what others in your town have to say.

Considerations

Keep in mind the following:

  • Does a practice take your insurance? Even if they are out of your network, a practice may submit claims to all insurance providers. Be sure to ask.
  • Where is the office? You know what real estate agents say: location, location, location! Make sure the office is conveniently located. That may mean they are close to your job. Don’t forget to find out their office hours.
  • Specialties. Not all practices perform every dental procedure. So may not extract wisdom teeth, while others may not offer dental sedation. Learn as much as you can before committing to anything.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we are committed to excellence in dentistry. People from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood come to our practice for dental implants and a full range of general dentistry procedures. Please call us to schedule an appointment today!

What Is Necessary For A Dental Crown?

dental crowns Dallas

Dental crowns are one of the most common restorative procedures there is, and we do a lot of them at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas.

Placing a typical crown consists of several steps:

  • Tooth Preparation. Any decay is removed and the tooth is shaped. Sometimes the tooth is too small; in that case, we build up its core with filling material to construct a tough base for the crown.
  • Creating a Good Impression. A putty-like substance is used to mold an impression of the tooth and surrounding teeth. An impression is also made of the teeth opposite the crown. This ensures a good bite.
  • The Temporary Crown. As the permanent crown is being made, a temporary crown protects the tooth. Patients need to be careful with temporaries. They aren’t as strong as the permanent crown. Avoid things like gum and sticky foods.
  • Your Crown Is Put In Place. When the new crown is ready, it is placed  and fitted in your mouth.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we place a lot of dental crowns. Patients throughout Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood come to us for these and other restorative dentistry procedures. Call to schedule an appointment today!

The Tea And Teeth Question

Dallas teeth bleaching best price

Here’s a riddle from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas: What do you call a dentist who doesn’t like tea? Why, Denis, of course.

Lame jokes aside, a common concern for patients is stained teeth. In this blog post, we’ll talk about a common cause of tooth staining: dark beverages, including tea.

Over time, tea can stain the plaque that may eventually turn into tartar. Plaque can be brushed and flossed away. Daily oral hygiene is vital.

Between cleanings, rinse with water after drinking tea. Be sure to brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth at the end of the day.

If the color of your teeth is still unsatisfactory after a professional cleaning, you may want to consider professional teeth whitening.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we can transform yellow or dull teeth with our teeth whitening. People from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood trust their smiles to our cosmetic dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
