You've heard about the prevalence of strokes and heart attacks. Maybe someone you love has faced such a health crisis.

It's frightening, especially when a person who seems to be the picture of fitness suffers a sudden loss of health. Inevitably, we ask could it happen to me?

The Bale/Doneen Method was developed by Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, DNP, ARNP with the belief that you can avoid such tragedy in your own life. Here's why: our research and treatment outcomes show heart attacks, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes--a closely related condition-can be prevented.

Jill Wade Dentist Summer Invisalign Promotion

Discover the Confidence That Comes From 

Straightening your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well.  As an adult, you may be looking to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion like your wedding day.  Or perhaps you're a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective yet modern-day solution.  

Health Benefits of Straight Teeth

You may be surprised to know that the benefits of having properly aligned teeth extend far beyond a confident smile. According to the American DentalAssociation, straightening your teeth can actually significantly affect your overall dental health. Think about it - a smile can hardly be perfect if it’s not a healthy one.  Fortunately, with Invisalign, having a confident smile and reducing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease go hand in hand.

How We Are Your Biggest Healthcare Advocate  
"Optimizing Total Health Through Dentistry"

This past week I was fortunate enough to attend the Bale/Doneen Preceptorship with several team members.  This course focuses on cardiovascular prevention and dentistry's role in achieving this through proactive therapy. This was the fourth time I have attended this course and I get goose bumps each time I am with these incredible leaders.  I continue to learn new ways for Stonebriar Smile Design to be your biggest advocate as a healthcare professional.  

A few "pearls of wisdom" taken from this course: 
  • Proactive hygiene therapy is "key" in reducing inflammation in your mouth; thus reducing inflammation in your entire body. Cardiovascular prevention CANNOT be comprehensive in nature without addressing the oral-systemic link. 
  • More and more scientific studies are proving the pathogens present in your mouth are the same pathogens found in many heart attack victims plaque.  
  • 50% of cardiac events have undiagnosed dental infections or periodontal disease.
  • Finding "like-minded" physicians and dentists to work as a "team" on your behalf is your best chance at complete cardiovascular disease prevention. 
Our goal in attending these courses are to continually learn and expand our knowledge base to be the best we can be for you, our patients.  I challenge you at your next visit to take a deeper look into our health history forms and answer them as if you were at your physicians office, not "just your dentist."   We are truly your "oral physicians", taking dentistry to a whole new level!

Optimizing Total Health Through Dentistry

 After being a dentist for almost 20 years, I have found that trends come and go in dentistry. One year whitening is a hot topic, the next a new material to use in the office.  I was blown away when I began my role as a founding member of The Academy of Oral Systemic Health. The science and studies emerging from both the medical profession & dental community are relating more and more systemic diseases to oral health. 

As your dentist, I want to ensure that I can optimize your total health through dentistry. This means that you need to understand the connections of oral health to other systemic diseases.  Over the next several weeks I will take 1 systemic condition at a time and elaborate on its relationship to oral health.

You might be surprised at just how much your oral health can affect your total health. 

Stay tuned, our first topic will be heart disease & strokes. Studies show over 70% of stroke victims had an undiagnosed dental infection that could have lead to their stroke.

We also offering Oral DNA testing in our Frisco, TX, office

5 Ways to Brighten A Smile For The Holidays

Of each patient I see during the day at Stonebriar Smile Design, the most common question I receive, especially around they holidays is: “What is the quickest and easiest way to enhance or brighten my smile before the holiday?”

To most peoples surprise some dental cosmetic whitening / enhancing options are very simple and relatively inexpensive. 

1.  Take-home whitening trays - These are custom trays that are fitted to impressions or molds we take of your teeth. You receive our professional grade teeth whitening solution to wear at home for 15 min - 1 hour each session. Many people achieve a great result in 5 - 7 applications in a row. Once you have initially achieved a great result patients typically can maintain by popping in trays after each dental cleaning or prior to a specific event.
2.  Electric Toothbrushes - I know it may sound cheesy, but electric or sonic toothbrushes offer an amazing way to keep your smile healthy and remove build-up and debris from staining your teeth between your professional dental cleanings. They can offer up to over 32,000 brush strokes per minute! Try achieving that with a manual brush!
3.  Professional In-office teeth whitening - For the person who wants instant gratification and the maximum result possible for whitening their teeth, this is the way to go. These procedures have also become very affordable and make great gifts! In as little a 4 - 15 minute whitening sessions at Stonebriar Smile Design, you can achieve an 8 shade change in 1 day!
4.  Cosmetic Dental Crowns / Veneers - This is a more permanent step towards achieving straight / white teeth; however, surprisingly enough in 2 appointments you can have a completely new designed smile.  Call the office today, and ask for your complimentary cosmetic consultation.
5.  Invisalign- Often times people are wanting to correct misaligned or crooked teeth, and this can easily be changed using clear removable custom fitted aligners from Invisalign.  In as few as 10 weeks you can have the straight smile you have always wanted!  Anyone who completes their Invisalign treatment and references this blog post, will also receive custom take-home whitening bleaching trays!  The perfect way to enhance your new straight smile is to brighten it up!

If you or someone you love has been looking for the answer to the ever so popular question: “What is the quickest and easiest way to enhance or brighten my smile before the holiday?”  Simply give the office a call 972.377.7800 and schedule an appointment to discuss any of the above procedures today!

Happy Holidays!
