West Chester Dental Group On Jaw Bone Deterioration

West Chester Jaw Bone Deterioration Hello friends of West Chester Dental Group! Today’s post focuses on jaw bone health.

To remain dense, your jaw bone needs to be consistently stimulated by the pressure of chewing, biting, and talking. Each tooth has a root structure attached to the surrounding bone material. As each tooth absorbs the forces of everyday mouth function, it stimulates the bone surrounding the root.

In some cases, tooth extraction is the only possible treatment for our West Chester patients with tooth damage beyond repair. However, we make every effort to preserve the root structure. When a tooth is extracted, the jaw bone that surrounded the former root structure begins to recede.

Fortunately, tooth implants provide a new, artificial root which keeps the surrounding bone healthy and strong. A dental implant consists of a strong titanium post which is placed in the jaw bone. It replaces the original root and eventually integrates into the surrounding bone.

After the implant has been placed and the surrounding bone has healed and meshed with the implant, a post is inserted into the implant. The new artificial tooth, or crown, is then attached to the post. Implant restoration is a safe and effective treatment for tooth loss with a very high success rate.

For more information about dental implants, call dentist Sanjeev Goel at 513-942-8181. The friendly team at West Chester Dental Group provide world-class dental treatment for patients in West Chester and the surrounding areas.

We will give you a reason to smile.

Ready To Smile Again?

Are You Ready to Smile Again, West Chester? Most Cincinnati residents have plenty of things to smile about.

However, there are some West Chester and Tri-State folks who avoid smiling at all costs. Are you one of those people who cover their mouth when they laugh? Do you keep your mouth closed when someone takes a picture of you? Have you been hiding unsightly teeth for years?

It’s time to take care of those tooth problems and get a new lease on life.

Sanjeev Goel DDS at West Chester Dental Group in West Chester can make it happen!

If you are missing one or more teeth, talk to us about dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that includes both root and crown. Because it is anchored into the jawbone, it looks and feels like a natural tooth.

Are your teeth yellow or gray? Have your teeth whitened at our West Chester dental practice and experience an instant transformation.

If your teeth are crooked, talk to us about the different types of braces now available. You may be able to straighten your teeth in less than a year.

Many of your Butler County and Mason friends and neighbors have benefited from porcelain veneers. They correct several types of imperfections and may cost less than dental crowns.

We look forward to developing a custom treatment plan to transform your smile. Call today!

West Chester Dental Group In West Chester Wants You To Be Healthy And Happy

West Chester Dental Group Dentists in West Chester are dedicated to your oral health and care about the condition of your teeth. At West Chester Dental Group we recognize that your teeth help you both eat and speak. You use your teeth to tear, scrape, and chew food, as well as to form words with your tongue.

Healthy teeth and gums are a critical component of complete physical and mental health. An unhealthy smile can erode confidence, cause embarrassment, and make eating and speaking difficult. The team of dental professionals at West Chester Dental Group in West Chester, Ohio, wants to help keep your mouth and teeth healthy so that they don’t adversely affect your fitness in any way.

We humans have two sets of teeth in our lifetime. The first set are your ‘primary teeth’, which many people around West Chester often call ‘baby teeth’. Baby teeth typically start to come in at about 6 months old. An average healthy mouth for a West Chester resident has a total of 20 primary teeth by about age 5.

Your primary teeth will eventually fall out and new teeth known as ‘permanent teeth’ will grow in. Permanent teeth typically begin to come in around age 6 for most West Chester residents, but every person is unique and it could be a little earlier or later. By about age 13 an average healthy mouth should have 28 of the total 32 permanent teeth. The last four permanent teeth may or may not come, but typically come in between the ages of 17 and 21 if they do. Because of the late age that these last teeth come in they are commonly called ‘wisdom teeth’.

Many adults in the city of West Chester have their wisdom teeth pulled out because these teeth can be problematic to your oral health, such as crowding a mouth. Other adults in the West Chester keep these teeth because they are not causing problems. If you are concerned about the state of your wisdom teeth you can visit our local West Chester office and we can help you make this critical decision.

Caring for all of your teeth – whether you are young and have 20 primary teeth or are an adult and have 28 to 32 permanent teeth – is necessary for total stamina. Let your West Chester dentist help keep you healthy and happy.

So what foods can you eat, and which ones are off limits? Below are six post-surgery meal ideas that will help you get through your recovery period with flying colors.  (more…)

What Can Veneers Do For Cincinnati Smiles?

porcelain veneers cost Cincinnati

Hello, and welcome to our West Chester Dental Group cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from durable, translucent porcelain or composite resin. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Unlike a dental crown which covers the entire visible portion of a tooth, a veneer covers just the front part of the tooth. They are generally used to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are slightly crooked.

If you visit your dentist for veneers, he or she will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a small portion of the enamel on the tooth has to be removed so the veneer can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

I hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. West Chester Dental Group offers all the services you need to create your very best smile. Ask us about gum contouring, smile makeovers, teeth whitening, dental implants, and invisible braces.

If you are looking for a dentist with a high level of skill at creating beautiful porcelain veneers, give West Chester Dental Group a call. My name is dentist Sanjeev Goel and I have been practicing dentistry since 1994.

Please call 513-942-8181 and a member of our friendly staff can schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you have about cosmetic dentistry.

The West Chester Dental Group Guide To Wisdom Teeth Extraction

What To Expect After Wisdom Teeth Extraction For the 65 percent of West Chester adults who detect wisdom teeth in their late teens or early twenties, West Chester Dental Group generally recommends removal. Wisdom teeth can damage adjacent teeth, nerves and, due to their awkward positioning, can increase risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Moreover, they often come in crooked, crowding the other teeth and affecting the bite.

Wisdom teeth are also difficult to clean, especially if they do not fully erupt, which is a common problem for many teens and young adults who discover them. This can cause a harmful infection, as bacteria can be trapped under the skin where brushing and flossing is difficult.

After removal, West Chester Dental Group recommends wisdom teeth extraction patients carefully follow the instructions given.

Bleeding is inevitable and should be expected to last up to three days. Rinsing is counter-productive, but firm pressure should be applied by biting down on the gauze pads to help stop the bleeding.

Swelling following wisdom teeth extraction is a sign that the healing process is progressing normally. Swelling that recedes and then re-appears after a few weeks, however, is a sign of infection. If this happens to you, it is important that you talk to us ASAP.

Dentist Sanjeev Goel recommends an examination seven to ten days after the extraction to make sure the wounds are clean and there are no complications. An antibiotic wash can be applied if infection is present.

Keep in mind that many problems can be avoided if the West Chester patient has his or her wisdom teeth removed when dentist Goel advises. This is a case where a “let’s wait and see” approach can cause problems.

To schedule a dental exam or a wisdom teeth consultation, contact our West Chester dental practice today.

The Dream Of No Drill

The Dream Of No Drill In Cincinnati

If you ask dental patients in the Tri-State, Butler County, and Mason area what they hate the most about dental visits, chances are that they’ll mention the drill. Just the sound of it is enough to make people cringe.

Many residents of West Chester, Ohio may wonder if there will ever be an alternative to the dreaded dental drill. Guess what? Now there is!

Drill-less dentistry is also known as air abrasion or microabrasion. Air abrasion can be used for common dental procedures such as removing tooth decay or preparing tooth surfaces for sealants or bonding. These instruments work like a little sandblaster that aim a fine stream of particles at the area that would normally be drilled. After the stream of particles strikes and removes the decay, the materials are suctioned out of the mouth.

Hi. I’m dentist Sanjeev Goel of West Chester. I want my patients to be aware of the latest dental technology available, especially as it pertains to cosmetic dentistry.

Don’t Let Poor Oral Health Take You Out Of The Game

Tri-State cosmetic dental

It’s hard to win a gold medal if you have a toothache. A recent study cited in the British Journal of Sports Medicine explored how poor oral health affects athletic performance at the elite level.

“More than 40% of athletes were bothered by their oral health with 28% reporting an impact on quality of life and 18% on training and performance.”1

The dental troubles experienced by Olympians and professional athletes are not any different than those found in the general population: tooth decay, dental erosion, periodontal disease, and inflammation around partially erupted wisdom teeth. It’s critical to note that these issues are largely preventable.

Athletes are also at risk for mouth injuries suffered while competing or training.  Tooth trauma can prevent injured athletes from competing in the short term and cause ongoing complications down the road.

Whether you are an Olympic runner or a busy West Chester working mom who seems to be running all the time, dental health affects your overall health and quality of life. Don’t let your performance suffer because of poor oral health.

If it has been a while since you have had a dental exam, we invite you to schedule a check-up and cleaning by calling West Chester Dental Group at 513-942-8181.

West Chester Dental Group is located at 5900 W Chester Rd Ste A in West Chester, Ohio. We provide general and cosmetic dental procedures including cosmetic dentistry and root canals. You can read more about our services at https://www.westchesterdentalgroup.com.

3 Treatment Options for Whiter Teeth

It’s hard to beat the feeling of confidence you can get from having a brilliant white smile. It radiates an air of happiness and health, and in A woman smiling after completing a teeth whitening procedure at West Chester Dental Group.many ways it can brighten up your entire appearance. With benefits such as these, it’s no wonder why so many people seek teeth whitening treatments to enhance their smile. If you’ve been wondering what treatment options are available for you to whiten your teeth, below are three of the most popular options in use today.  (more…)

What Is Crown Lengthening?

gummy smile surgery Perfect smiles created at West Chester Dental Group often require crown lengthening.

Crown lengthening surgery is a safe and effective procedure that exposes more of the visible part of the tooth. Some patients undergo crown lengthening surgery at West Chester Dental Group to alter their gummy smile.

A gummy smile refers to upper teeth that appear too short because excess bone and soft tissue covers part of the teeth. When a gummy smile is eliminated, our West Chester patients can’t believe how it changes their whole face. They love their new smile which reveals pleasing, symmetrical portions of their upper teeth.

Sometimes, a patient needs crown lengthening because of tooth fracture. When a tooth breaks at the gumline or a crown is fractured, crown lengthening makes tooth structure accessible for the necessary restoration.

Digital imaging is one of the technological tools that helps Cincinnati dental professionals perform crown lengthening and other cosmetic dentistry procedures. When a Tri-State cosmetic dentist has a highly-detailed, 3-D image of tooth and bone structure, he/she is able to achieve the precision necessary to design smiles to the patient’s exact specifications.

If you are seeking a dental smile makeover and live in the Cincinnati area, schedule a smile consultation by calling 513-942-8181. We are conveniently located at 5900 W Chester Rd Ste A in West Chester. When you come in, we can show you photos of Ohio cosmetic dentistry patients who are enjoying their dazzling smiles that were created with the help of the skilled smile artists at West Chester Dental Group.
