At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we we have a prevention-oriented philosophy of dental care. With preventive dentistry you can avoid tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental health problems.

The most effective preventive dentistry is a joint effort. You do your part with daily brushing and flossing, and we do our part with thorough cleanings and checkups at your regularly scheduled dentist appointments.

Daily brushing and flossing is the most important part of the equation. You should:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day, using a fluoridated toothpaste. Brush at least two minutes!
  • Remember to brush your tongue.
  • Floss with string-style dental floss or tape at least once a day.
  • Replace your toothbrush after about three months.

In addition, you should limit sugary snacks, including soft drinks. That includes simple carbohydrates like white bread. We also recommend drinking plenty of water each day. You’ll stay well-hydrated, and the water will help cleanse your mouth of food debris.

By following these simple rules you can avoid or reduce the following:

  • Gingivitis (early stage gum disease)
  • Cavities
  • Enamel loss

Preventive dentistry is one of the best things you can do for your dental health. A clean mouth is a happy mouth! At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, our services include general dentistry. People throughout Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood also come to us for restorative dentistry, and much more. Call to schedule your next checkup with us today.

It’s A Great Time To Have Ugly Teeth!

Prestonwood cosmetic smile makeoverYou read that title right: it’s a great time to have ugly teeth. It really is true! Cosmetic dentistry from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas offers a range of procedures that can transform unattractive teeth into something memorable.

One of the most-requested procedures here is teeth whitening. Many of our patients have tried various over-the-counter whitening products and been less than happy with the results. The truth is that nothing you can buy at the store can match the power of professional teeth whitening.

Many patients have also been thrilled with porcelain veneers. These are thin ceramic shells that are custom-made for one or more teeth. They’re great for covering chips and cracks, gaps between teeth, and even stains and other discolorations.

Dental implants have restored countless smiles, and are one of the true marvels of modern dentistry. An artificial tooth is supported by a post implanted into your jaw, where it fuses with the bone. They look and function like natural teeth!

These are just a few of the cosmetic dentistry procedures at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas that can turn unsightly teeth into something to behold. Find out why people from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood come to us to improve their smiles! We also offer TMJ treatment. Call our office today, and find out what we can do for your smile!

Want To Keep Your Enamel Healthy? Avoid Doing These 11 Things

cosmetic dentistry DallasTooth enamel is the hardest part of the human body, but that doesn’t mean teeth are indestructable. Far from it! To keep them healthy and problem-free, the team at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas recommends (strongly!) you avoid the following.

1. Chewing on hard foods

We’re looking at you, unpopped popcorn kernels and hard candy.

2. Chewing on hard things

This includes fingernails, pencils, pen caps, and ice.

3. Grinding your teeth

If you grind your teeth, ask us about an oral appliance.

4. Eating too much sticky food

Gummy candy, dried fruit, and even protein bars can break teeth.

5. Drinking lots of anything besides water

If your teeth are constantly bathed in soda (sugared or diet), juice, coffee, or sports drinks, you are asking for dental issues.

6. Playing sports without a mouthguard

Sports pose a major risk of tooth damage. Most children are required to wear a protective mouthguard on the playing field, but adults tend to be less vigilant. (Custom-fitted mouthguards are more comfortable than the cheap boil-and-bite type.)

7. Using a hard-bristled toothbrush

A hard-bristled tooth brush can weaken teeth and cause gums to pull away. We recommend a soft (or extra-soft) toothbrush!

8. Ignoring dry mouth

Saliva is important. It helps to rinse food particles from your mouth as well as neutralize the acids that cause plaque. Constant dry mouth (xerostomia) can lead to tooth decay. Talk to us if you have persistent dry mouth.

9. Using teeth as tools

Take a minute to find a pair of scissors before you tear open a package of lunch meat or pry the lid of a medicine bottle. Use a nutcracker if you are eating unshelled nuts. A quality dental crown can cost over eight hundred dollars!

10. Ignoring bad breath

Bad breath might be a symptom of accelerating tooth decay. Discuss it with us.

11. Ignoring jaw pain

If you suffer from jaw pain or notice a clicking sound, be sure to let us know! These can be signs of a condition called temporomandibular disorder (TMD).

If you’ve already damaged a tooth, come see us at Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas. We offer complete restorative dentistry, and have helped patients throughout Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood. We also improve smiles with cosmetic dentistry.

It Doesn’t Take A Lot Of Time To Beautify Your Smile, Dallas

Prestonwood cosmetic smile makeover

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we can improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry. Possibilities include restoring cracked or discolored teeth, straightening them, or even by replacing those that are missing.

We all want to have the best possible smiles, but cosmetic dentistry is more than just appearance. Straight teeth are easier to care for, and make for a healthier smile. That may explain why clear braces are so popular. They can straighten your teeth, and are almost undetectable as you wear them.

Also in demand are porcelain veneers. They can transform your appearance and are minimally invasive. A thin layer of tooth enamel is removed before veneers are permanently attached to your teeth. After that, you’ve got a mega-watt smile.

Dental implants are, in many ways, one of the most significant advances in the history of dentistry. Titanium posts inserted in the jaw can support one or more replacement teeth that look and function like the real thing.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, cosmetic dentistry can revitalize your smile. People from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood also come to us for complete general dentistry. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Health Habits To Keep You Smiling

habits to keep teeth healthy Dallas

In this post from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we focus on behaviors that influence dental health. Of course, regular brushing and flossing are two important habits for healthy teeth, but there are many more things we can do to keep a healthy smile.

Diet Do’s

  • Do eat a nutritious diet with a variety of foods. This is needed for overall physical health and a strong immune system.
  • Do consume calcium-rich dairy products like milk, cheese, and yogurt to neutralize acids that are detrimental to enamel.

Diet Don’ts

  • Don’t eat sugary foods. Sugar triggers the production of detrimental cavity-causing acids that weaken enamel and lead to cavities.
  • Don’t snack throughout the day. This accelerates plaque production and subjects the teeth to continual contact with acids.
  • Don’t chew on ice (it really can crack teeth.)
  • Don’t drink energy drinks. They have many substances that are bad for teeth.

Other Important Tips

  • Don’t use your teeth as tools. It is better to cut that knotted shoelace than to gnaw at it to try to untangle it.
  • Don’t get piercings in or around your mouth.
  • Don’t ignore tooth pain or sensitivity.
  • Don’t use a medium or hard bristle toothbrush. It can damage gums.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we encourage all of our patients to maintain a lifestyle that promotes dental health as well as overall physical health. Patients from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood come to our practice for general and cosemtic dentistry. Schedule your next checkup with us today!

Modern Dentistry In Dallas With No Oxen Hooves

Modern Dentistry With No Oxen Hooves In North Dallas

One of the essential habits of good dental health is daily brushing with an effective toothpaste. There is a wide variety of toothpastes available. At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas we recommend you use one with the ADA seal.

That seal ensures that the toothpaste has been tested, claims are being met, and the ingredients are correct. It also means the toothpaste has fluoride, an important ingredient for strengthening teeth.

Toothpaste as we know it has only been in existence since the late 1800s. Fluoride was added in 1914. The earliest evidence of toothpaste or dental cream dates back to 3000-5000 BC. The Ancient Egyptians pulverized oxen hooves, egg shells, pumice, myrrh, and water creating one of the earliest forms of toothpaste.

The Greeks and Romans began adding crushed bones and bark to the mix. The taste most likely was hard to take. During this same time people in China and India were using a similar paste but adding flavorings, like ginseng and herbal mints making it a bit more palatable.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we are always happy to recommend a toothpaste for you. Patients come to us from Richardson, Plano, and Prestonwood for dental implants, complete general dentistry, and much more. Schedule your next checkup today!

There are several possible causes for bad breath, some that you may overlook:
