Your oral health affects more than just the appearance of your smile – it directly affects your overall health and well-being.
By providing complex, customized general dentistry services at our North Dallas practice located near Addison, Carrollton, Richardson, Frisco, and Plano, we can address all of your dental needs and take precautionary measures to preserve the health of your teeth and gums for a lifetime.
During your first dental appointment at Elegant Smiles Dentistry, we will document your medical history, perform a comprehensive examination of your entire smile. This includes taking digital x-ray images of your jawbone and close-up images of your teeth, gums, and jaw via an intraoral camera, and noting any irregularities that may be detected.
By taking the time to communicate with our patients and educate them on how to care for their unique smiles, our dental professionals express their commitment to the preservation of oral health.
By covering healthy, adolescent teeth with clear sealants, we can shield the natural tooth structure from developing decay. Flossing, fluoride treatments, thorough brushing, and routine hygienic cleanings will also help to prevent damage and decay from wearing down your gorgeous grin.
The importance of preventive care cannot be overstated; through regular dental treatment, you can maintain and preserve the health, function, and appearance of your teeth for a lifetime.
Hygienic Cleaning & Polishing
We recommend you schedule a professional hygienic cleaning and dental examination twice a year so our specialists can inspect and address your oral health while thoroughly cleaning your teeth and gums.
By being aware of abnormalities that you may be experiencing, checking for irregularities, and performing a thorough examination of your entire mouth, our team can detect, diagnose, and treat dental problems before they affect the health of the rest of your smile.
Routine cleanings are vital to the longevity of your oral health because even with careful brushing and flossing, tartar and harmful bacteria can develop in hard-to-reach places. Professional cleanings at our general dentistry practice in North Dallas include tooth scaling, tooth polishing, and if too much tartar is present, debridement.
Your periodontal (gum) health is critical to your oral and overall health. Through periodontal therapy at our general dentistry practice in North Dallas, we can address the health of your gums and gently work with you to remove harmful plaque and tartar that harbors above or below the gum line.
Gum disease is treated by using a combination of safe and effective procedures, including scaling and root planing. The procedures are performed by our renowned cosmetic dentist while you rest comfortably under anesthesia.
During the non-surgical procedure, Dr. K will carefully scale the unwanted substance from the teeth and gums and smooth rough spots on the tooth’s root. By smoothing the rough regions, our team can remove bacteria from your smile and provide a clean surface for the gums to gradually reattach to the teeth.
Night Guards – TMJ
At Elegant Smiles Dentistry, we want to equip you with the tools necessary to protect and preserve the integrity and health of your teeth. We offer custom-designed night guards that are comfortable to wear and form snugly to the contour of your smile.
Custom night guards are most commonly crafted for patients who suffer from TMJ disorder, unintentionally clench or grind their teeth, or want to protect their teeth while participating in sports or being physically active.
Your custom night guard will be crafted based on the specific specifications of your smile and your personal dental needs for amplified satisfaction and improved oral health. Mouth guards manipulate the jaw in such a way that stress is alleviated, and tension within your jaw and joints is removed.
