If you’re healthy, your mouth knows it.

November 18, 2017

Regular checkups don’t just prevent cavities and root canals. Preventative dentistry may also head off heart attack, stroke, diabetes – even catching oral cancer and osteoporosis early, before problems arise.

Every checkup includes a complete periodontal evaluation. That’s our part.

Your part is simple.

You brush, you floss, and every six months you come to Dr. Robert Mitchell, D.D.S.

Outstanding Care for a Lifetime of Optimal Oral Health

September 27, 2017

We strive to provide Outstanding Care for a Lifetime of Optimal Oral Health.

New Patient Exam

Thank you for choosing the office of Dr. Robert Mitchell for your family’s dental care. Our entire team values the opportunity to give you the personalized attention and beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.

We’ll dedicate two hours for your new patient exam. When you arrive, we’ll give you a tour of our dental office and introduce you to our team. Refreshments are available for your enjoyment, as are Bose music headphones, movie goggles, massagers, and comfortable blankets, hot and cold neck pillows, and warm, scented towels.

Assessing Your Teeth, Gums, and Bite

We will talk to you about your dental needs and the reason for your visit. Then Dr. Mitchell will conduct a thorough exam which will include checking your bite alignment, assessing the integrity of existing dental work, and scanning your teeth for decay using our non-invasive DIAGNOdent laser. About 80% of the population unknowingly has some form of periodontal disease, so we will examine your gums for signs of this stealthy offender and suggest therapies for prevention or treatment. A set of digital X-rays will provide a complete picture of your oral health and aid in accurate diagnosis.

Screening for Oral Cancer

We will check your soft tissues for signs of oral cancer. We use a state-of-the-art tool called Velscope to identify suspicious lesions in the earliest stages. Oral cancer claims the lives of 7,500 Americans each year and often goes undetected until it has spread to the neck and lymph nodes. Early detection increases survival chances, so we will screen you for oral cancer at your new patient exam and subsequent checkups.

Dental Crowns in Dallas, Texas

July 19, 2016

*Actual Patient of Dr. Robert Mitchell DDS

*Actual Patient of Dr. Robert Mitchell DDS

If you’re self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment.

Dental Crown Options

We use precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, or all-porcelain crowns. To maintain a fully white smile, we recommend all-ceramic crowns. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting, and these benefits make them popular with dentists as well as patients.

Typically, we can design, fit, and place your crowns in just a couple of short appointments. The procedure for installing a dental crown normally takes two separate dentist visits. At your first appointment, Dr. Mitchell will examine the tooth to make sure that it can support a crown, then begin shaping the tooth to prepare it for the crown. Alternatively, if the tooth is severely damaged or broken, Dr. Mitchell may need to fill it in to make it large enough to properly receive the crown. After the tooth is prepped to the proper shape, Dr. Mitchell will take an impression of the tooth, as well as those surrounding it, and send it away to a dental lab, so the permanent crown can be made accordingly. By the end of this first visit, your tooth will have a new temporary crown that protects it until the final crown is ready to be permanently placed.

When the permanent crown is ready, you will have your second visit. At this appointment, the temporary crown is removed, Dr. Mitchell will position and fasten the new crown to the tooth with a special permanent adhesive.

Once a crown is placed, you can care for it as you do your natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive exam, too. If you have any questions please call 972-233-1311 we would love to set up a consultation for Dr. Mitchell or one of our knowledgeable staff members to go over the process with you in more detail.

What Is Your Smile Saying About You?

May 23, 2016

Dentist-3-2Dentist in Dallas TX, Dr. Robert Mitchell says, let’s face it, your smile says a lot about you. Your smile and the condition of your teeth are a direct reflection of you. The number one thing people notice when they meet you for the first time is your smile. People with attractive smiles are generally more confident, happier, friendlier and seem to enjoy life more. They are also generally more respected an liked by others. Your smile really does matter.

Studies show that 99.7% of Americans believe a smile is an important social asset. Also, a more pleasant smile can help you get ahead in life. People want to date someone who is attractive and who takes care of their appearance. Employers want to hire and promote people who are more attractive and who have a warm friendly smile. Over 74% of Americans believe an unattractive smile can hurt a person’s chances of career success. Your smile is one of your biggest assets. Dull, stained, crooked or missing teeth can negatively affect how others feel about you and it affects how you feel about yourself.

At your cosmetic dentistry consultation, Dr. Mitchell will talk to you about your smile goals. He may suggest porcelain veneers to transform flawed front teeth, professional teeth whitening to brighten discolored enamel, or Invisalign clear braces to straighten crooked smiles. If your appearance is marred by jagged or misshapen teeth, Dr. Mitchell will use his skill as a cosmetic dentist to artfully re-sculpt teeth with bonding and contouring. Smiles that require a variety of therapies to regain their glory can benefit from customized smile makeovers. Whatever your needs are, you can rely on Dr. Mitchell’s extensive training in the field of cosmetic dentistry to give you the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Drink Up: Which Beverages to Avoid to Keep YOUR Healthy Smile

May 13, 2016

Whether it’s sipping soda, juice or tea, some drinks are better for your teeth than others, right?

Dr. Robert Mitchell and his staff have many recommendations for the types of beverages you should avoid (some are probably obvious) and drinks to choose that are better for – or easier on – on your teeth.

We all know that sugar can cause problems with your smile, like tooth decay but do you know which sugary drinks are the worst offenders? You might be surprised. Check out our list and see if you are consuming more sugar than is recommended for a beautiful, healthy smile.

Sugar Filled Drinks to avoid:sugar-drinks

  1. Sodas like Coca Cola, Pepsi, Mountain Dew
  2. Energy drinks like Red Bull, Rockstar, Amp
  3. Bottled iced teas with sweetener like Snapple, Sobe, Arizona
  4. Bottled juices like Minute Maid, Capri Sun
  5. Enhanced Water Drinks like Vitamin Water

Alternative drinks to satisfy your craving:

  1. Water
  2. Milk (FYI: Make sure to check the label. Sometimes companies sneak sugar in.)
  3. Fresh brewed teas
  4. Fresh squeezed juices (mix with fizzy water for a sparkling treat!)
  5. Coffee (FYI: Watch what you put in your cup of Joe, though! Flavored syrups, sugar or creamers can add sugar.)

Finding a way to quench your thirst without harming your teeth can be a challenge, but Dr. Mitchell is here to help you keep those pearly whites safe! When you make an appointment with us, make sure to ask any questions!

Learn more about Cosmetic Bonding from Dallas Dentist Dr. Robert Mitchell

March 22, 2016

If you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. Dr. Mitchell can apply liquid composite resin that’s been shaded to blend with your tooth’s color in order to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.

  • To repair decayed teeth (composite resins are used to fill cavities)
  • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
  • To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
  • To close spaces between teeth
  • To make teeth look longer
  • To change the shape of teeth
  • As a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings

A Beautiful smile is a valuable asset! Let us explain how our advanced procedures in both cosmetic and general dentistry can give you the attractive smile you’ve always wanted.

❤️FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH ❤️

February 1, 2016

February 2016–American Heart Month
Sponsor: The American Heart Association (http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/)
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.
The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices.Make a difference in your community: Spread the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encourage people to live heart healthy lives.

The heart and mouth connection: How heart disease and oral health link

Did you know that heart disease and oral health are linked? There are two different connections between heart disease and your oral health:

  1. Studies have shown that people with moderate or advanced gum (periodontal) disease are more likely to have heart disease than those with healthy gums.
  2. Oral health holds clues to overall health. Studies have shown that oral health can provide warning signs for other diseases or conditions, including heart disease.

Are you at risk?

Many of the risk factors for gum disease are the same as those for heart disease, such as tobacco use, poor nutrition and diabetes. Overall, people who have chronic gum disease are at higher risk for a heart attack, according to the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD). Gum disease (called gingivitis in its early stages and periodontal disease in the late stages) is caused by plaque buildup along and below the gum line. Some researchers have suggested that gum disease may contribute to heart disease because bacteria from infected gums can dislodge, enter the bloodstream, attach to blood vessels and increase clot formation. It has also been suggested that inflammation caused by gum disease may also trigger clot formation. Clots decrease blood flow to the heart, thereby causing an elevation in blood pressure and increasing the risk of a heart attack.

Research shows that many systemic diseases – including heart disease – have oral symptoms. Dentists can help patients who have a history of heart disease by examining them for any signs of oral pain, infection or inflammation. According to the AGD, proper diagnosis and treatment of tooth and gum infections in some of these patients have led to a decrease in blood pressure medications and improved overall health. If you currently have heart disease, make sure to tell your dentist about your condition as well as any medications you are currently taking. Remember to carefully follow your physician’s and dentist’s instructions about health care, and use any prescription medications, such as antibiotics, as directed.

Warning signs

Gum disease affects 80% of American adults and often the condition goes undiagnosed. Warning signs that you may have gum disease include:

Proactive prevention

While regular dental exams and cleanings are necessary to remove bacteria, plaque and tartar and detect early signs of gum disease, you can play a major role in preventing gum disease every day. The best way to be proactive in maintaining your oral and overall health is scheduling regular dental checkups, getting professional cleanings and regular brushing and flossing. Taking steps to stop gum disease at the source is the best way to keep your smile beautiful at any age.
