Dental Implants

dental implants in wylie txMissing one or multiple teeth can impact you in ways that go deeper than just how appearances. Your oral health and general well-being can be negatively affected, as well. Wylie, TX patients might be interested in learning if they are good candidates to fill in any gaps in their smile. 

Benefits of Dental Implants in Wylie

While every dental procedure we offer at InSmile Dental is designed to improve your quality of life, dental implants are one of the few processes that can truly change your life permanently. 

Missing teeth can make it harder to bite, chew, or speak clearly. In addition, they can drastically change how your smile looks. While dental implants are not for everyone, Dr. Behram Shah can determine if this is your best option to restore your smile and dental health.

What Makes a Good Candidate

  • Dr. Shah starts by examining your teeth and gums to look for any underlying issues that need to be addressed first. 
  • Without a tooth root anchoring place, it can lose bone density. Not to worry! We have procedures that help.
  • Candidates should quit smoking. Tobacco products can delay healing.
  • Candidates should be able to maintain excellent oral health.
  • Healing takes time and patience. Good candidates appreciate the investment of dental implants.

Importance of Scheduling a Consultation With Dentist

Most of our patients are good candidates for dental implants. Still, if there are little improvements that need to be completed first, your Wylie, TX restorative dentist will recommend them after your consultation. 

We recommend making an appointment to see us determine if there are any oral health problems or if another tooth replacement option is a better alternative for you. Call our dental office today!

Pediatric Dentistry

We love welcoming children of all ages to our Wylie, TX dental office! Dr. Shah has had extensive training and experience treating pediatric patients throughout his entire career. He spent several years working at multiple pediatric specialty offices where he treated children from age six months until they’re young adults.

Unique Dental Care For Each Child

Some kids are excited and receptive to the new adventure, while others are more reserved or don’t want anything to do with us at all. Through this experience, Dr. Shah learned that each child is unique, and he needs to approach them according to their needs.

Comfortable Dentistry for Kids

Dr. Shah helps anxious children by using behavior management techniques and offering safe, gentle sedation with nitrous oxide. At InStyle Dental, we can manage all your child’s oral health needs from pediatric services from preventative services to full mouth treatments.

There are many ways that we can help your child avoid cavities, and dental sealants are one of them. We typically place dental sealants on teeth like molars that have uneven surfaces, making them vulnerable to cavities. 

Pediatric dentistry in Wylie, TX is all about monitoring your son or daughter’s oral health to keep it healthy and providing the treatments needed if a problem develops. It’s better for your child, however, to take steps to prevent problems from occurring, and dental sealants help us do that.

Dental Sealants for Kids

A dental sealant is a thin coating of liquid plastic that Dr. Shah applies to the chewing surfaces of molars and pre-molars. He then uses a curing light to set and harden the material, and when he's finished, the surfaces of your child’s teeth will be protected for as long as five years. Dental sealants naturally wear away on their own and will need to be replaced periodically.

At InSmile Dental, we commonly recommend dental sealants for older children in the cavity-prone ages of 10 to 16, but we may also recommend them to protect vulnerable baby teeth from decay.

Call InSmile Dental to Learn More About Dental Sealants for Kids!

If you have questions about dental sealants, please call our Wylie, TX pediatric dentist to schedule a convenient appointment.

Custom Mouth Guards for Kids in Wylie, TX

Our pediatric dentist recommends customized protective mouthguards at our Wylie, TX dental office for patients of all ages who participate in any contact sports.

kids playing tackle football wearing mouth guardsThe Journal for the American Medical Association (JAMA) reports that up to 39 percent of all dental injuries are sports-related, and more than five million teeth are knocked out each year during sports activity.

While most schools mandate protective mouthguards for sports like basketball, soccer, and lacrosse, kids aren’t compliant, and only a small percentage follow through and wears them as needed.

One reason for non-compliance is that generic mouthguards of the boil-and-bite-variety don’t fit very well because they’re uncomfortable and can interfere with your speech. A custom mouthguard, however, is comfortable because it’s designed specifically for your child’s mouth.

Custom Mouthguard Process

At InSmile Dental, we take impressions of your child’s mouth to create a custom mouthguard that conforms precisely to the contours of their mouth. This results in a comfortable, natural-feeling fit, and the increased likelihood that your child will willingly pop it in at game time. And since our custom mouthguards are made of a much more durable material than you can buy at your sporting goods store, they offer significantly more protection for your child’s precious smile.

Contact Our Wylie TX Dental Clinic

Custom sports mouthguards at our Wylie, TX dental office offer a high level of protection to help minimize the risk of dental injuries that can result in long-term oral health problems. Please call InSmile Dental at (972) 908-9830.

One reason Dr. Shah likes to see children by their first birthday is that the sooner we help them get used to the idea of dental visits, the sooner they will come to see these appointments as an interesting and fun adventure.

Very young children need to know that they are safe and secure, and these low-key dental visits help them adjust to the new environment slowly and at their pace. By letting them lead the way, we can show your child that pediatric dentistry at our Wylie, TX dental office is nothing to fear.

Early childhood visits also serve the purpose of helping your little one get used to the general idea of oral care. You can jumpstart the process at home when your child's an infant by wiping down their gums every day with gauze or a soft washcloth. This helps keep their mouth clean and also establishes the idea early on that oral care is just another part of their lives.

Child's First Visit to Our Wylie Office

If you have questions about your child’s oral hygiene or the role a healthy diet plays, these first visits are the perfect time to let your Wylie, TX pediatric dentist know what’s on your mind. We’re here to support you in every way possible, so we encourage you to take advantage of this time to get helpful tips and information that will enable you to make healthier choices for them.

Preventive Dentistry

dental xrayDigital X-Rays at InSmile Dental 

Dental x-rays are an invaluable tool that we use in dentistry to provide you with the highest standard of care. Visual exams will always be an essential part of your dental experience. But we can’t treat what we can’t see, and digital x-rays pick up where a visual dental exam ends.

Safe Dental X-Rays

We understand that many of our patients worry about the amount of radiation to which they’re exposed. Our digital x-ray units significantly minimize any radiation exposure to ensure the safety of our patients, which is always our primary focus. This allows us to safely take x-rays and to be able to diagnose with the best and most accurate images. For perspective, our digital x-rays are less than 1/10 of the radiation exposure from taking a domestic flight.

If Dr. Shah needs to take an x-ray of a tooth, he’ll explain why he recommends it and how seeing the problem in detail will benefit you. Within minutes of taking the x-ray, Dr. Shah will share the image with you on your chairside monitor and point out the area of concern. So digital x-rays help us provide safer, more effective treatment, and enables you to understand why treatment is necessary.
