The Perks of Finding the Right Dentist in Austin

Ah, Austin. Known for its captivating live music, mouth-watering barbecue, and the iconic South by Southwest festival. But have you ever paused amidst your two-stepping and brisket-devouring to consider the importance of your pearly whites? More specifically, the perks of finding the right dentist in Austin to ensure those chompers stay in tip-top shape? 

Today, let’s embark on an enlightening journey about the benefits that come from choosing the ideal dental professional in this vibrant city. Are you ready?

Personalized Care and Trust

Every smile tells a story. Your smile is a culmination of countless coffees, shared laughs, and maybe those secret late-night candy indulgences. The right dentist in Austin will look beyond your teeth, seeking to understand the story and individual behind the smile. By doing so, they're not just attending to teeth; they're catering to a persona, unique quirks and all.

Remember the last time someone remembered your coffee order or your favorite book? It felt special, right? Similarly, when your dentist recalls your sensitivities, past dental issues, or even that vacation you mentioned during your last visit, it creates a bond. 

It's this relationship that transforms dental appointments from clinical interactions to engaging, personal catch-ups. So, instead of dreading that biannual check-up, you might just find yourself looking forward to a chat and some dental TLC.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Picture this: You walk into a dentist's office in Austin, expecting the usual clunky machines and that peculiar antiseptic smell. Instead, you're greeted with sleek, modern equipment and a serene ambiance. There’s soft music playing, the chairs look inviting, and the machinery resembles something out of a sci-fi movie. Welcome to the future of dentistry.

The right dental clinic recognizes that technology isn't just about fancy gadgets; it's about enhancing patient experience. Modern equipment can detect potential issues before they become major problems, ensuring timely intervention. Advanced tools mean quicker procedures, minimal discomfort, and faster recovery times. 

Plus, let's be honest, there's something incredibly reassuring about a dentist who stays abreast of the latest in dental tech. It's a testament to their commitment to delivering the best care possible.

And on the note of ambiance, ever considered aromatherapy during a dental procedure? Or perhaps some calming meditation tracks playing in the background? Modern dentistry is about holistic wellness: ensuring your teeth, mind, and soul are all in sync and feeling fantastic.

Comprehensive Range of Services

You wouldn't visit three different stores to complete an outfit, so why shuffle between multiple dental clinics for your oral care? Finding a dentist in Austin offering a comprehensive suite of services is like discovering a one-stop shop for all your dental desires. 

Whether you're seeking preventive care, restorative treatments, or just a cosmetic touch-up, having it all under one roof is a luxury you'll soon wonder how you lived without. Imagine the convenience. Instead of juggling appointments, records, and recommendations from various clinics, you have a single point of contact. 

This continuity ensures better understanding and tailored treatment plans since one dentist oversees your entire dental journey. With a multi-faceted approach, they can often anticipate needs and provide interventions that a specialist, seeing you in isolation, might miss.

Moreover, a comprehensive dentist in Austin keeps expanding their skills and knowledge, continuously adding to their arsenal of treatments. So, whether it's the latest in teeth whitening techniques or innovations in gum health, you'll be among the first to benefit.

Relaxed Environment and Ambiance

It's a sunlit morning in Austin. Birds are chirping, and as you open the door to your dentist's office, you're not met with the clinical white walls and jarring noises you've come to associate with dental visits.

Instead, soft hues greet your eyes, artwork adorns the walls, and there's a gentle hum of ambient music in the background. A friendly receptionist offers you a refreshment from a comfort menu. Yes, you heard that right. A menu. In a dentist's office.

The beauty of a well-chosen dentist in Austin lies in their ability to redefine the dental experience. They recognize that the environment plays a massive role in patient comfort. A calming ambiance can dramatically reduce anxiety, making procedures feel less daunting. 

Whether you're a nervous newbie or a seasoned dental visitor, the right setting can transform your visit from a nerve-wracking ordeal to a serene spa-like experience. So next time, instead of gripping the armrests with apprehension, imagine leaning back, picking a Netflix show to binge-watch, and almost forgetting you're at the dentist's at all.

Affordable and Transparent Pricing

We've all been there. The moment when you hesitantly open an envelope or click on an email, bracing for the impact of a whopping dental bill. The fear of hidden costs, last-minute additions, and financial jargon can sometimes be scarier than the dental drill. But, what if we flipped the script?

The perfect dentist in Austin offers not just excellent dental care but also transparent pricing. Their commitment extends beyond your oral health to ensuring that you are comfortable with every aspect of the service, including the bill. When you walk in, the treatments, costs, and payment options are laid out clearly. No surprises. Just honest, straightforward billing.

Moreover, in the spirit of inclusivity, they provide varied payment options. Whether it's Medicaid, Care Credit, or Compassionate Finance, they aim to make dental care accessible for everyone. After all, a beautiful smile shouldn’t come with financial stress.

Post - OP Instructions: Crowns & Bridges

February 20, 2024

Post – Op Instructions: Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges usually take 2-3 appointments to complete. On the first appointment, the tooth/teeth are prepared, scans are taken, and a temporary crown/bridge is placed on the tooth/teeth. A custom fit temporary restoration will be fabricated to protect your teeth and gum tissue while your permanent crown or bridge is being created at the dental laboratory. The temporary prevents the tooth from shifting or moving, so it is essential that it stay in place for the duration of the time in between appointments.

A temporary, however, is not as durable as a permanent restoration, nor is it sealed completely, so it is important to be very careful chewing on that side, as well as keeping the area clean. Having sensitivity on the tooth/teeth while the temporary is in place is normal and will subside when the permanent restoration is placed, however, If the sensitivity gets increasingly worse or does not begin to subside after several weeks after the permanent restoration is placed, please contact our office.

Home Care

While your temporary is in place it is important to keep your gum tissue as clean and healthy as possible. You may need to alter your oral hygiene habits in the interim as temporary restorations are cemented with a special cement that is designed to come off easily. Continue to thoroughly brush and floss every day.

However, when flossing, take special care to pull the floss out from the side rather than out from the top. Pulling out from the top can cause the temporary to come loose. If your temporary does come off, call us immediately so we can arrange to cement it back into place.

Do not attempt to “glue” the temporary crown back in yourself or “go without it” as the teeth may become sensitive or shift slightly, preventing placement of the permanent crown. You can use a denture adhesive like Fixodent or toothpaste to hold the crown or bridge temporarily until you can get to our office.

Once your permanent crown or bridge is cemented, it is important to remember that these ceramic or zirconia restorations do not decay, but the teeth underneath them do. The most susceptible area for decay is at, or below, the area where the tooth and restoration meet. If this area is not routinely cleaned bacterial plaque will form around the restoration, which oftentimes lead to decay. This is the most common reason for needing to replace permanent crowns and/or bridges. Therefore, it is important that you maintain a diligent daily home care program to clean your teeth and gums.

Fixed dental bridges require additional cleaning under the pontic (missing tooth). Since this “false tooth” is connected to the adjacent teeth a bridge threader is used to thread floss under it to remove plaque. These are available at most pharmacies.

Chewing

Although your temporary restoration should be very comfortable, you will need to alter your chewing habits to ensure the temporary stays in place in the interim in between appointments. 

Avoid chewing hard and sticky foods on the temporary crown such as gum, caramels, taffy, or hard candy. Also, if possible, chew on the opposite side of your mouth. If your bite feels uneven or your teeth do not come together as they did before, please contact us immediately.

After the permanent restoration is placed it is normal to feel slight pressure and sensitivity to hot or cold for a few days up to a few weeks. If, however, after 2-3 days your bite still feels uneven, contact our office. Delaying the necessary adjustments may damage the tooth permanently. If the sensitivity gets increasingly worse or does not begin to subside after several weeks, please contact your local office.

Please contact your office if you have any questions or concerns

Post – Operative Instructions: Fillings

Your anesthesia will wear off in approximately 1 to 3 hours after the procedure. It is very important not to chew on the numb side (to prevent biting tongue, lip, etc.) until the anesthesia wears off.

Children should be observed until the anesthesia has worn off. Due to the strange feeling of the anesthetic, many children chew on the inside of their cheeks, lips and tongue which can cause serious damage.

Your tooth (or teeth) may be sensitive to hot, cold or pressure following the placement of fillings. This is completely normal. The possible symptoms of hot, cold or pressure sensitivity will cease within a few days to a couple of weeks. In very few instances, this sensitivity could last longer than a couple of weeks. As long as your teeth or gums are continuing to feel better (not getting worse), everything is fine, and there is no need for concern. However if you have any concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to your local dentist.

Once the anesthesia has worn off, if you feel as though any of the teeth we have worked on are hitting first when you bite down, please give our office a call immediately. This imbalance with your bite may cause further discomfort and should be adjusted.

The gum tissue can sometimes be irritated during the procedure and may be sore for a few days. The anesthetic injection site may also feel sore or bruised. If your gums are tender, rinse with warm salt water, dissolving 1/2 teaspoon of salt in an 8 oz. glass of warm water. An analgesic such as Tylenol or Advil will help to decrease discomfort.

Composite (tooth colored) fillings set up right away and can be chewed on as soon as the anesthetic wears off.

Home Care

Although the treatment that was performed is quite durable, the underlying tooth is still vulnerable to decay, especially at the interface between the tooth and filling. It is important to resume regular brushing and flossing immediately. Daily home care and regulating your intake of sugar-containing foods will increase the longevity of your new restoration. If you have any other questions or concerns, please call your local office.

Post – Operative Instructions: Deep Cleaning

Scaling and root planing is a non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease. The purpose of the treatment is to remove bacterial plaque and tartar from around teeth and under the gum line and smooth out rough target areas thereby eliminating the inflammation and infection that is the causative factor in gum disease. The progression of gum disease can be halted by removing inflammation and disrupting bacterial bio-film development with regular maintenance visits and meticulous home care.

After treatment you can expect to notice less redness, less bleeding, and less swelling of your gum tissues. Your teeth may feel smoother, and your mouth will taste and feel better. The following tips will make you more comfortable, help to prevent any possible compilations and ensure the success of the procedure.

Discomfort

You may take an over-the-counter pain reliever for any tenderness or discomfort. Take ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) unless you have medical conditions or allergies.

It is not unusual for the teeth to be more sensitive to hot or cold temperatures, and/or sweets. This is normal. This occurs as the gum tissue heals and shrinks in size and should gradually resolve in a few weeks with proper home care. Consistently brushing two to three times daily with sensitivity toothpaste or using fluoride rinses may alleviate this over time. Avoid toothpastes with “whitening” or baking soda, as this will contribute to the problem. If sensitivity continues or is severe, professional application of a desensitizing agent may be required.

Home Care

To help soothe the area, rinse your mouth 2-3 times a day with warm salt water rinses. If CloSYS is prescribed, use as directed.

Resume your home care regimen of brushing twice a day with a soft bristled toothbrush and daily flossing immediately, but be gentle with the area recently treated. Your gum health must be maintained with proper home care, as instructed, and regular dental visits. You may use a WaterPik if recommended as well.

Refrain from smoking for 24 to 48 hours after scaling and root planing as tobacco will delay healing of the tissues. Smoking cessation is highly recommended.

Diet

After scaling and root planing, avoid chewing in the area until the anesthetic has worn off completely. It is easy to bite or burn your cheek, tongue or lip while numb.

For several days following treatment, a soft diet is recommended. Avoid any hard foods such as tortilla chips, potato chips, popcorn, or seeds.

Bleeding

Minor bleeding that results in a pinkish tinge to your saliva is normal and may occur during the first 48 hours following treatment. You may rinse your mouth with warm salt water. If excessive bleeding should occur, apply light pressure to the area with a moistened gauze or moistened tea bag and call the office immediately for more assistance.

Follow – Up Care

We ask patients to return in 3-4 months following scaling and root planing for an additional periodontal evaluation. At this appointment the healing response of your periodontal tissues will be evaluated as well as the effectiveness of your oral self-care in order to determine if further periodontal treatments are necessary as well as the frequency of your recall interval. This appointment will include re-probing the periodontal tissues as well as a maintenance cleaning.

Please contact your office if you have any questions or concerns
