Don’t Let Stress Hurt Your Smile

Don't Take Stress Out On Your Teeth West Chester Hello, I’m Dr. Sanjeev Goel. At my West Chester practice I have noticed more and more of my patients with stress-related dental issues. West Chester men and women may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health.

Mouth sores, clenching and grinding, periodontal disease, and poor oral hygiene can all be exacerbated by stress.

West Chester people who have difficulty managing stress need to realize that it can increase the risk of getting mouth sores such as cankers and cold sores. Most canker sores only last 7-10 days, but for relief from the irritation, we recommend our patients pick up an over-the-counter topical anesthetic at any Tri-State, Butler County, or Mason drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out Cincinnati residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at West Chester Dental Group our friendly staff can determine if a night guard or other dental appliance is appropriate to reduce grinding.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is exacerbated by stress because stress can result in an increase in dental plaque.

And West Chester dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in the Tri-State, Butler County, and Mason areas find that they eat more sugary snacks when they’re under stress.

If you’re concerned about the effect stress can have on your teeth, schedule an appointment at West Chester Dental Group today. We treat patients from age 20 to 80 and we offer porcelain veneers, prepless veneers, teeth whitening, and sedation dentistry. We hope to hear from you soon!

4 Oral Ailments To Discuss With Your West Chester Dentist

Bad Breath Treatment Cincinnati

We all go to our West Chester dentist for check-ups and toothaches, but there are other less-obvious issues that your dentist can help you with. Today, we would like to explore some of the most common oral conditions that should be discussed with your dentist.

1. Bad Breath. Sure, nobody wants to admit that they have bad breath, but bad breath is usually caused by bacteria build-up in the mouth. This means that it might be a symptom of accelerating tooth decay. Discuss it with your dentist who can help you overcome this problem. (All of your friends will thank you.)

2. Dry Mouth. Also known as xerostomia, this lack of saliva is very uncomfortable and can predispose dental patients to a host of issues such as cavities and gum disease. Some West Chester residents experience it because of prescription medications or chronic diseases, so make sure to bring a list of current prescriptions with you to your appointment

3. Jaw Issues. If you have a clicking jaw or jaw discomfort, be sure to schedule an appointment with your dentist ASAP! These symptoms can be signs of a dangerous oral issue.

4. Teeth Grinding. If you’ve been stressed out and find that you’ve been grinding your teeth (or if your partner tells you that you’re doing it in your sleep!), discuss it with your dentist. A simple mouthguard can guard your teeth. If you have sufferred damage from grinding such as fractured or chipped teeth, we will give you details about restorative dentistry.

I’m dentist Sanjeev Goel of West Chester,
and I want my patients to come to me with all of their oral concerns. Call 513-942-8181 today to schedule an appointment.

We will give you a reason to smile. -Dr. Sanjeev Goel

3. Your dentist will keep you comfortable. Many people worry that the procedures are painful, but dentists in the Cincinnati area can help you stay relaxed and free from discomfort whether you’re getting tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, veneers, or a complete smile makeover. Ask your dentist about oral sedation.

2. You will look and feel younger!

Want A Reason To Smile All The Time?

Tri-State cosmetic dental and tooth implants

If you are not happy with your smile, we invite you to consider a complete smile makeover.

1. Look and feel younger.
2. Improve your oral health.
3. Increase your confidence.
4. Smile all the time!

Hello, I am dentist Goel Sanjeev. Welcome to my dental blog. I serve my patients at West Chester Dental Group which is located at 5900 W Chester Rd Ste A in West Chester, Ohio. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 1994.

There has never been a better time to practice dentistry because dental procedures unavailable just a few years ago are now commonplace. During my career, I have become proficient in a wide variety of advanced dental treatments aided by breakthroughs in techniques and tooth restoration materials. My passion is providing the highest standard of dental care for my Cincinnati area patients and creating the healthiest and most beautiful smiles possible.

If you are not familiar with the latest dental procedures, you might not realize what cosmetic and restorative dentistry can achieve. A total smile redesign involves a combination of cosmetic dental procedures which may include dental crowns, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, tooth implants, inlays and onlays, gum contouring, teeth whitening and, in some cases, orthodontia.

If you have dental anxiety, we can help. Sleep dentistry, sometimes called conscious sedation, will calm your nerves and help you relax while you undergo your smile transformation.

If you are in the West Chester Tri-State, Butler County, or Mason area and have cosmetic dentistry questions, schedule a consultation by calling us at 513-942-8181.

Afraid Of The Dentist? Sedation Dentistry Can Help

Afraid of the Dentist? Your West Chester Sedation Dentist Can Help If you live near West Chester and experience severe anxiety when undergoing (or even thinking about!) dental treatment, oral sedation is for you.

Conscious sedation dentistry is available in West Chester. Whether it is called relaxation dentistry, oral conscious sedation, sleep dentistry, or anxiety-free dentistry, it is completely safe and very popular for nervous cosmetic and restorative dental patients in the Cincinnati area.

Though it may sound impossible, with oral conscious sedation, Cincinnati dentistry patients can actually relax during dental visits. In addition, healing times for oral surgery and extensive cosmetic dentistry procedures are often shorter if the patient is sedated during treatment.

Sedation dentistry is great for alleviating anxiety for West Chester patients, and oral conscious sedation can be effective for treating or working with the following:

  • Teeth sensitivity;
  • Fear of needles;
  • A powerful gag reflex;
  • Difficulty controlling body movement;
  • Lengthy multi-procedure visits;
  • Difficulty becoming numb with traditional injections.

If you need dental work more extensive than a filling – such as a root canal, tooth implant, crown replacement or wisdom tooth extraction –  call West Chester Dental Group at 513-942-8181 for information about sedation dentistry.

You Won’t Be Out Cold (Unless You Want To Be!)

Sedation Dentistry Mason

Does your heart start pounding at the mere thought of having a cavity filled? Do you get sweaty palms when you drive by any Mason cosmetic dental practice?

Many West Chester residents who have improved their smile with cosmetic dentistry chose to use sedation. Though the terms “sleep dentistry” and “oral conscious sedation” are often used interchangeably, they are not identical. There are three main types of sedation used in dentistry.

Nitrous Oxide
The first level uses nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas” as it is sometimes called. Nitrous oxide has been used in West Chester cosmetic dental offices for generations because it is safe and effective. It goes to work at the first inhalation, relaxes the patient during the procedure, but wears off quickly after the mask is pulled off. If you need a little help to get through dental treatment, but don’t want to be knocked out cold, nitrous may be your best option.

Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedatives don’t start working as quickly as nitrous oxide, but they help most patients achieve a deeper level of tranquility. These medications, however, do not usually produce complete unconsciousness. Thus, oral sedatives and nitrous oxide are used in “conscious” sedation. Two common sedatives used by Mason dentists are diazepam and triazolam.

IV Sedation
IV sedation uses medications similar to those used in surgery and results in true “sleep dentistry.” Most patients are completely oblivious to what is going on in their mouth. IV sedation is often used for procedures such as root canals, wisdom teeth extractions and multi-procedure smile makeovers.

To learn more about sedation dentistry, adult braces, tooth implants, or porcelain veneers, call West Chester Dental Group at 513-942-8181.

What To Do In Case Of A Dental Emergency

West Chester Dental Emergencies Many West Chester residents will experience at least one tooth emergency in their life. You could break a tooth playing a sport, accidentally dislodge a crown, experience sudden pain caused by an abscess or break a wire on your braces. In the case of a dental emergency, it is vital to see your West Chester dentist as soon as possible!

Following are some immediate treatments:
Broken Tooth: Save any tooth fragments. Rinse mouth with warm water. If the area is bleeding, apply a piece of gauze. A cold compress held on the cheek can reduce swelling and lessen pain. Visit your West Chester dentist as soon as you can.

Lost Filling: Save the filling if you can. It can help your dentist determine why it came out. Do not let food get stuck in the hole left by the filling. Do not chew on the tooth. Brush it gently. Call your West Chester dentist’s office to schedule an emergency appointment right away.

Displaced Crowns: If there is pain, you may apply a dab of clove oil with a Q-tip to the affected tooth (a common home remedy that may reduce pain). Save the crown. If you can’t see your West Chester dentist immediately, you can apply dental cement (available at drugstores) or denture adhesive to temporarily re-attach the crown until you can get to your West Chester dentist. Do not use other types of glue or adhesive.

By visiting your West Chester dentist as soon as possible, you avoid pain, infection and possible further tooth damage. If you delay treatment, even for a few days, you risk needing more extensive treatment later.

For dental emergencies in and around West Chester, call Sanjeev Goel at West Chester Dental Group. Our phone number is 513-942-8181

We will give you a reason to smile.

Has Your Child Visited A Dentist?

West Chester Kid

Hello Ohio! Today’s West Chester Dental Group blog is for new West Chester, Tri-State, Butler County, and Mason parents. We know that your child’s health and safety is your top priority. That’s why you baby-proof your home, serve healthy foods, and buckle them tightly in their car seat before you pull out of your driveway.

I’m dentist Sanjeev Goel. I want to remind West Chester parents that oral health is an intrinsic component of overall health. Teeth and gum condition can affect speech development, nutrition, and self-confidence. From birth, there are important things parents can do to promote healthy teeth – even before your son’s or daughter’s first tooth erupts.

At West Chester Dental Group, we maintain a kid-friendly environment so our youngest patients look forward to dental check-ups and never develop the fear of dentists that was more common in generations past. I love working with you and your child to ensure a healthy smile for life and I can assure you that my friendly staff will help your child have a positive experience.

We recommend bringing your child in for a first exam before age one, or when their first tooth erupts. During the visit, we can discuss pediatric dental issues such as fluoride treatments, brushing and flossing techniques, orthodontia, and dental sealants. Dental sealants are composed of a plastic material that is applied to children’s teeth. The sealants bond to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, mainly in the pits and fissures and protects the enamel against acids and plaque.

West Chester children’s dentists also advise Ohio parents about pacifier use, thumb-sucking and other habits that can affect your child’s tooth development and oral health. Remember to call us immediately at 513-942-8181 if your child (or any member of your family) experiences a tooth injury.

West Chester Cosmetic Dental Artistry

West Chester Cosmetic Dental Artistry West Chester cosmetic dentistry is part science and part art.

I’m Sanjeev Goel of West Chester Dental Group and enjoy using my extensive dental training and artistic skills to design treatment plans unique to each of my West Chester cosmetic dental patients.

In order to achieve an attractive, yet natural looking result, I do much more than recommend specific procedures. I consider the shape, alignment, color and condition of the teeth. In order to create a balanced look, the facial shape and coloring is taken into account. The Cincinnati dentistry patient’s age, health condition and lifestyle all influence the plan.

At West Chester Dental Group, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan.

My artistic abilities have been perfected over several years of creating smile transformations for my Tri-State and Butler County cosmetic dentistry patients. Even fairly recent cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers have advanced considerably. Dental implants are a truly remarkable solution for our Ohio dental patients who have lost one or more teeth.

I would love to perform a personalized smile makeover for you. When the work has been completed and you are enjoying your new look, it will only be obvious to those who see you all the time. Others will assume you have always been blessed with a naturally beautiful and healthy smile.
