Can Laser Dentistry Enhance Your Best Smile?

Do you live in Boynton Beach or nearby Lake Worth, Florida? Have you ever wondered about Laser Dentistry?
At Aberdeen Dentistry, Dr. Hillary Krawatsky uses our advance dental laser to create beautiful and healthy smiles!

A dental laser functions by generating heat energy in the form of light.
This allows Dr. Krawatsky to perform most laser treatments without injections or using the dental drill.
Lasers offer numerous benefits, especially when compared to the traditional dental drill.
Some advantages of Laser Dentistry include:
– less pain during dental treatment
– lessens and even eliminates the need for anesthesia
– reduces anxiety for those patients with a fear of the dental drill or “needle”
– minimizes bleeding and swelling during treatment

If you have gum disease or an area of concern in your mouth, please visit http://www.MyBoyntonDentist.com to schedule a complete exam and check-up and Dr. Krawatsky can determine if laser treatment is suitable for you.

Is Your Child Ready for their first visit to the Dentist?

Childrens dentistry Boynton Beach

It is a wise decision to schedule your children as early as age one for a first visit to have their teeth assessed and catch any early concerns.  Don’t worry,  these visits are usually short – and involve little treatment.  However, as dentists, we do as much work as possible that can save you time and money of having to be referred to a pediatric specialist. In most cases, Dr. Krawatsky can patiently treat and explain what we are doing while working with each child in a fun, interactive way.

Ideal Age for Meeting the Dentist

By 2 1/2 most children have cut all of their baby teeth, so toddlerhood is a great time to teach good dental habits. Baby teeth hold space for permanent teeth, and it is imperative to take great care of them. Decay in baby teeth increases the risk of decay in permanent teeth.

Preparing for the First Visit

At Aberdeen Dentistry, we follow the guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry for children to see us by their first birthday and twice-yearly after that. These visits combined with the right home care will keep those teeth pearly white all through childhood.

Remember for toddlers; their first visit can be an adventure. Weird instruments, lots of strange noises, and new people can fluster even the most laid-back 2-year-old. However, with careful preparation mixed in with fun prizes, a first trip to the dentist can be fun.

During the first exam, Dr. Krawatsky will check all of your child’s existing teeth for decay, examine their bite, and look for any other potential issues with the gums, jaw and oral tissues.  Our dental hygienist will also clean all teeth and assess the need for fluoride. Some topics we might discuss with you include:

  • Proper teeth brushing practices for your child’s teeth and gums
  • Cavity prevention
  • Fluoride needs
  • Oral habits such as thumb sucking, Tongue thrusting and lip sucking
  • Developmental milestones
  • Teething
  • Proper Nutrition
  • Visiting Our Office

We will also discuss with you the scheduling and importance of dental check-ups. It is most beneficial if we see children every six months to build up their comfort and confidence level in visiting with us.

Whether your child is sporting a gummy grin studded with just a couple of freshly-sprouted teeth or already has a mouthful of pearly whites, getting regular dental care with a dentist, they are comfortable with can help ensure that she maintains a healthy smile as he or she grows. 

As with your child’s pediatrician, you will want to choose a competent, patient pro who is adept at working with the kids to care for your little one. We at Aberdeen Dentistry pride ourselves on treating our little ones with the utmost care.

Healthy Practices at Home

  • Try these tips to keep your child on the path to a bright, healthy smile.
  • Stop sucking habits early. They lead to misaligned teeth and possible overbite.
  • Choose a soft, kid-size brush. Use a new brush every three months.
  • Only use a pea-size amount of toothpaste on your child’s brush. This amount is adequate fluoride and protection from fluorosis, a damaging oral condition caused by over-ingestion of fluoride.
  • Be sure to help your toddler brush after breakfast and before bed. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children younger than eight brush with guidance from parents.
  • Stay away from starchy and sugary snacks. They notoriously stick to teeth and increase the risk of decay.
  • If your child is unable to brush, rinse her mouth with water to wash away food particles and sugar.
  • Call your community’s water department to find out whether your water is fluoridated, and talk to your dentist about the best fluoride treatment.

Healthy Drinks for Healthy Teeth

Healthy Drinks for Teeth Boynton Beach FL

When you reach for a beverage, do you ever think about your oral health?  Most don’t.

The multitude of beverage choices seem to grow every day. From water, sodas, sports drinks, coffees, juices, craft beverages and so many more, it’s hard to keep up.

When it comes to health and calories, many will consider the impact a beverage may have on them.  However, when it comes to complete wellness including teeth and gums, many don’t factor the impact it could have on their oral health.

For overall wellness and health, it’s always wise to try and avoid drinks high in sugars and/or acidity.  This also stands true for your teeth and gums.

Beverages that are high in sugar and acid can lead to tooth damage and decay.  Even diet drinks or low-sugar energy drinks that have non-sugar sweeteners contain acids that can erode tooth enamel and case damage to the gums.

Other side effects from beverages such as coffees, teas, wines, sodas and even energy drinks include staining of the teeth.  If you don’t avoid these drinks, it’s advised to try drinking them through a straw to avoid contact with your teeth.  Or try rinsing or brushing after drinking them to help avoid unsightly tooth stains.

Good oral care is a vital part of overall wellness.  Regular teeth brushing, flossing and visits to your local dentist can also keep your teeth bright and oral health in check. The American Dental Association, ADA, recommends individuals to brush at least twice per day and a fluoride toothpaste and floss daily.  The ADA also recommends eating and drinking nutritious, balanced meals and to visit a dentist for regular check-ups and professional cleanings.

A Common Question Demystified: How Can Braces or Invisalign Help My Smile?

Dr. Hillary Krawatsky Recommends Orthodontics When…

We recommend orthodontics when it is the best way to create a healthy and beautiful smile.  Moving teeth into proper alignment through orthodontics not only sets up a foundation for a beautiful smile but also aligns your teeth for longterm health.

Proper orthodontics can correct tooth alignment and treat tooth grinding and jaw clenching.  Your teeth and jaw joints can work more effectively when your teeth come together in harmony to bite, grind, and chew. As a result, there will be minimal wear and tear on your teeth, jawbones and joints. This also means minimal impact on your dental fillings and crowns.  Tooth alignment also reduces stress on jaw muscles, tendons, tooth ligaments, and more. If you suffer from TMJ problems, tooth alignment is a healthy step to treat your pain and create a harmoniously working mouth for the rest of your life.

Sometimes, orthodontics is important when tooth crowding is contributing to tooth decay and gingivitis. Straight teeth will improve your ability to brush and floss all surfaces more easily and thoroughly, reducing harmful bacteria that cause decay and gum disease.

If you will benefit from alignment of your teeth, Dr. Krawatsky will refer you to a top orthodontist in Boynton Beach.  Dr. Krawatsky and the orthodontist will review your smile options, and they will discuss with you the orthodontic treatment that is appropriate for you.

Many times the creation of a lasting beautiful smile cannot be achieved without orthodontics. Today, there are many options, including Invisalign clear aligner technology, clear brackets and wires, and accelerated (faster) orthodontics.  Many adult patients and teens are starting braces and enjoying the lasting benefits of improved health, comfort, and confidence in their appearance.

 

Making Dental Health a Priority

Healthy Smile | Boynton Beach Dentist

More often than not, Americans ignore their dental health. It’s surprising how often patients avoid dental issues as long as possible, even if they suspect something is wrong.

Waiting to have a dental issue checked until you have unbearable pain can lead to greater damage to your tooth and possibly to the surrounding teeth. Additionally, it can result in the need for a more serious or invasive procedure to correct the problem.

If you notice that something is not right in your mouth, whether that be tooth sensitivity, discoloration, swollen or irritated gums, chipping or cracking of a tooth, or other concerns, it’s important to set up an appointment to see a dentist as soon as possible.

Determining Frequency of Dental Exams

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends regular dental exams at a frequency determined by a dentist. For many, this means you should be paying your dentist a visit every six months to help ensure that your teeth stay in good shape and most problems or risk factors can be identified before they become major issues.

However, depending on your dental history and current risk factors, your dentist may advise a different check-up schedule for your individual situation.

Referencing a study published in the Journal of Dental Research in 2013, the ADA advises consumers that the key to good dental health is a personalized approach to oral care. This underscores the need to find a dentist who understands that everyone’s mouth is unique and each person must be treated as an individual when evaluating a plan for both treatment and preventative care.

To get a plan that fits you, building a relationship with a reputable dentist is even more important. Aberdeen Dentistry provides local, personalized dental services in Palm Beach County, Florida. Their professional and caring staff take the time to understand your needs and provide the best service for your smile.

Connection to Your Overall Health

Your dental health says a lot about your general well-being. You may be surprised to learn that your dental health could be an indicator of your likelihood to develop other conditions. Recent research has shown a relationship between periodontal (gum) diseases and cardio-vascular issues.

In the wake of such reports, it becomes imperative that you make your dental health exams a priority. A knowledgeable dentist will always make it easy for you and your family to deal with all dentistry-related issues.

Your dental demands can range from anything as simple as a teeth cleaning and x-rays to more complex processes like Dental Implants.  With the experienced team of professionals at Aberdeen Dentistry, you can rest assured that your needs will be treated with care.

Why Prioritize Dental Care

If you haven’t kept up with regular dental exams or don’t know what treatment you may need, it’s time that you prioritize your dental health and pay serious attention to it. The habit can actually help you avoid a majority of dental issues or allow your dentist to detect problems early, ensuring the best possible treatment plan and possibly saving your tooth or teeth in the long run.

Having access to a good dentist is a must. A professional in the field with a good reputation is always a good start. At Aberdeen Dentistry, Dr. Hillary Krawatsky and her team of experts are constantly at work, treating an array of dental issues for the whole family.

If you are a resident of Boynton Beach or Lake Worth, FL, then Aberdeen Dentistry is your one-stop solution to your family’s dental needs.

Porcelain Veneers in Boynton Beach, FL

Porcelain Venners Cosmetic dentistry Boynton Beach & Lake Worth Florida

Porcelain veneers (also known as dental veneers) are designed for providing a natural appearance and improved health to your teeth. This is usually the best option if you are willing to get rid of tetracycline or dark yellow stained teeth. This treatment is also referred as “instant braces” due to the fact that porcelain veneers instantly improve the shape of your teeth.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers can be best defined as thin shells of heat-fired porcelain designed for fitting perfectly on your teeth. Before you ask, let me clarify that porcelain veneers don’t cause any problems in brushing and flossing. You can normally carry out these activities as you would. The best part of porcelain veneers is that the filling usually last at least a couple of years depending on the quality of material used in this process.

Advantages of Porcelain Veneers:

  • Natural appearance: There are a number of different treatments to improve the color, size, and shape of your teeth. However, porcelain veneers are known for providing the most natural looking results.
  • Tolerance: Unlike majority of other materials, porcelain is easily tolerated by gum tissues, which makes this treatment an ideal choice for a number of patients.
  • Stain-resistant: As mentioned above, porcelain veneers deliver long lasting teeth whitening due to its stain resistance capability.
  • Provide better support: Porcelain veneers are best for providing a better shape and size to your natural teeth. No matter how well we take care of our teeth, some of us are born with bad shapes.
  • Affordability: This is probably to be the most affordable option for patients needing to fix multiple problems, however, your decision of choosing the dental clinic shouldn’t solely depend on the cost of porcelain veneers. Dentist’s experience and the material used in the veneers should be your first priority.
  • Painless: In the dental world, pain is the factor that usually discourages a lot of people. It just so happens that porcelain veneers are counted among the safest and painless treatments in dental procedures.
  • Highly successful: Porcelain veneers treatments are known for being the most successful, in-terms of both implementation and satisfaction that dentistry has ever offered.
  • Restoration: If you’ve recently undergone any dental filling treatment, porcelain veneers can add extra benefit to it by allowing longer restoration of color and preventing the filling from breaking down.

Best Dental Clinic for Porcelain Veneers in Boynton Beach, FL

Although there are hundreds of different dental clinics that are offering this service, your most important step is to select the one with experienced doctors, a high patient satisfaction rate, affordability, and the use of high quality materials.

Types of Dentures

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Dentures | Dentist | Boynton Beach FL | Lake Worth FL

Dentures are often associated with but not limited to old age, when lost teeth and tissues make it too difficult for the individuals to chew their food. They are designed to look similar to their natural teeth and considered to be the best method of improving one’s smile when they’ve lost teeth or have other cosmetic imperfections.  Dentures are further simplified into two main categories, complete dentures, and partial dentures.

Easing Pain and Discomfort

There are times when our teeth are partially missing and that’s when partial dentures are utilized. It is best for preventing teeth from shifting and filling in any missing spaces within your teeth. On the other hand, complete dentures are utilized when there is more gum than teeth remaining.  Both situations relieve pressure and discomfort from food and teeth grinding against the gums.

A benefit of dentures is that they are compatible for the majority of people no matter the current issues with their teeth and should last for years.  They are very strong and made of a solid material that doesn’t erode easily.  Dentures continue to increase in popularity around the world. However, call it lack of knowledge or something, there are still people out there who are very hesitant to get this treatment done. Both types of denture treatments are risk-free and affordable at the same time.

Here are the top 4 reasons that define why dentures are important:

  1. Complete Dentures: Protects you from gum disease and further health problems from rotting teeth while offering you a beautiful, natural looking smile again.
  2. Partial Dentures: Great for healthy gums and reducing trapped food in tooth gaps while adding in keeping the remaining teeth in proper position.
  3. Tissues and smile: Both type of dentures results in improving your face tissues and smile.
  4. Quality of Life Improvements: These treatments help you with jaw movements such as speaking and chewing (resulting in better digestion) and improved cosmetic features, such as a beautiful smile.

Best place for Dentures in Boynton Beach Florida

Not all clinics are able to deliver the same quality or service for dentures. Some have different expertise in dental care while others may use lower grade of materials, which may not last as long or look as natural.  When it comes to dentures and your smile, it’s important to work with an expert who cares about your oral health.  Rest assured, Aberdeen Dentistry offers professional, affordable denture services.  Dr. Krawatsky and her staff are well-qualified to deal with all dental issues and are well known for the quality of their denture artistry all across Boynton Beach, Florida and surrounding communities such as Lake Worth, Florida.
