    Six Tips from the Staff at Jon Frankel Dentistry
    for the
    Perfect Smile on your Wedding Day

    Schedule a Comprehensive Exam and X-rays.
    A healthy smile is a beautiful smile. Swollen gums and decay are not only unsightly they challenge overall health. The first step toward a perfect wedding smile is a thorough check-up.

    Follow up with necessary Dental Treatment.
    Teeth cleaning on a regular schedule at least every six months and restoration of decayed and broken teeth are important toward dental, oral and overall health. It is a proactive way to ward off wedding day dental emergencies

    Remove Wisdom Teeth.
    Third molars or wisdom teeth are often misaligned or stuck behind functioning molars. Difficult to clean they are a source of decay and gum infection. There is generally just not enough room to accommodate wisdom teeth. It is common for wisdom teeth to flair up during times of stress and intense activity. Keep your special day stress and discomfort free. Have your wisdom teeth extracted months or years before your wedding.

    Get it Straight.

    There are a variety of ways to straighten teeth including Invisalign, Traditional Orthodontics, Bonding or Cosmetic Veneers. Scheduling a Cosmetic Consultation with an experienced Dentist or Dental Specialist well in advance of your wedding will allow time to consider the options and create your personal plan to design the perfect smile for your wedding.

    Hate the Shape.
    Chipped, Stained and misshaped teeth can be beautifully transformed in just two weeks with Porcelain Veneers. Schedule a cosmetic consultation with an experienced dentist. Ask for a cosmetic imaging to view your new smile before treatment begins. Although the process takes just two weeks schedule in advance to allow for basic dental preventative care especially if it has been a while since your last visit.

    Make it White.

    Whiter teeth are lovely and perfect for your wedding day. There are a variety of teeth whitening systems. At home whitening, in-office whitening such as BriteSmile or Zoom and for deeply stained teeth KOR Whitening a system that encompasses both at home and in office procedures. Schedule a cosmetic consultation and ask for a before and after imaging of your “Wedding White” smile.

  2. Start Young

    We have found that each child is different. Parents know best when their child will enjoy a first dental visit. The age ranges from 2 to 4 years old. Early quick health checks may begin as young as 9 months to 1 year but the best first visit experience is when the child feels part of the process.

    Brush and Floss your Children’s Teeth Daily

    As soon as a tooth peaks through the gum tissue it should be kept clean. Some parents find using gauze or a baby wash cloth the easiest way to keep an infant’s teeth clean. Brushing and flossing your child’s teeth at least twice daily is a lifelong gift. It establishes a healthy habit. A healthy mouth promotes a healthy body.

    Watch DVDs and Read Books about Visiting the Dentist

    The local library offers books and DVDs on visiting the dentist. Familiarizing your child with what to expect helps create trust. Often our “well-read” children walk in as if they have visited the dentist for years!

    Watch What You Say

    Don’t let your past mar your child’s future. Stories about dental visits heard by someone with no context can give the wrong impression about dental care. Stop friends and family mid-story if necessary. Counter with a pleasant experience or refer to the books you and your child have read or videos you watched together about visiting the dentist.

    Watch Your Words

    Children do not need to be brave. Dental visits are fun no courage is required. If you mention the doctor won’t hurt you. They will only hear and feel the word, hurt. Words like pull, shot and drill send the wrong message. Dental staff use remove for pull, make numb or put to sleep for shot, dental hand-piece instead of drill.

    Today’s dental visits are fun and rewarding. Our young patients watch television
    throughout their visit. We have been told that our after visit toy chest can’t be beat!
