Your Topeka Painless Dentist

July 6, 2015

Many people assume that dentistry has to be painful. Dental care is often portrayed negatively focusing on drills, and old fashioned tooth extraction. Patients who look terrified laying on uncomfortable chairs, so it’s no surprise how many millions of Americans report experiencing some level of dental anxiety. At Michel Dental, we don’t think visiting the dentist should hurt. Dr. Michael E. Michel and his skilled team will alleviate your dental pain without causing you more discomfort. Numerous dental health care issues have severely painful effects when left untreated. Preventive care and TMJ, endodontic therapy, and periodontic treatment from Dr. Michel, ensure you’ll have a lifetime of painless smiles. Call Michel Dental in Topeka, KS to schedule an appointment with painless dentist.

TMJ Dentist, Topeka

One of the most painful oral health care concerns a patient can experience is temporomandibular joint dysfunction often called TMJ or TMD. TMD may start as clicking or grinding in the temporomandibular joint (the joint that connect your jawbone – mandible to the rest of your skull), but TMD can lead to extreme pain when opening or closing your mouth, inability to open the mouth wide enough to eat or drink, headaches, neck pain, earaches, and even deafness in extreme cases. Dr. Michel has advanced studies in TMJ dysfunction and treatment through Bio Research prepared him to offer patients non-surgical answers to relieving their TMJ pain.

Endodontics Root Canal Therapy to Relieve Pain

Endodontics is the study and care of the inner tooth (pulp and nerves). Dr. Michel’s years of experience in endodontics make him an ideal choice to relieve pain related to infection of the inner tooth structures. You likely think root canal therapy has to hurt. Root canals have always been the stuff of dentistry nightmares, but innovative care from Dr. Michel will help relieve your pain not cause you more. Most of the pain associated with root canals is caused when the nerve housed inside the root canal is exposed to infection making the tooth extremely sensitive and causing pain. Root Canal Therapy removes the infection, but preserves as much of your natural tooth structure as possible.

Periodontics Gum Disease Therapy

More than 50% of Americans suffer from some level of periodontal (gum) disease. Gum disease can make eating, drinking, brushing your teeth, and other daily activities painful. More importantly, infection in the gums can spread through the body leading to fever and nausea, gum tissue or bone loss as well as increasing risk of heart disease, blood clot, and stroke. Periodontal therapy from Michel Dental will help you return to a healthy, pain free smile. By eliminating the infection and discovering the cause of the infection, Dr. Michel doesn’t just treat your gums. He helps you maintain periodontal health going forward.

Nutrition Tips for Dental Health from Dr. Michael Michel

February 25, 2015

Did you know that eating right isn’t only important to your general health and wellbeing, it’s also important to your oral health, too? The foods and beverages you choose to consume directly—and we mean directly—affect the health of your teeth and gums. Obviously, your mouth is the point of entry for everything you eat and drink, so it should come as no surprise that your diet affects your oral health. With this in mind, Dr. Michael Michel and his staff in Topeka, KS, would like to offer some advice on how you can eat well and maintain your oral health, too.

What Foods Should You Eat?

Let’s begin by focusing on the foods that are helpful to your teeth and gums. First, dairy products such as cheese, milk and plain yogurt, along with calcium-fortified tofu, leafy greens and almonds, are foods that benefit dental health. These foods are high in calcium, which strengthens teeth just as it does bones. Protein-rich foods such as meat, poultry, fish, milk and eggs are good sources of phosphorus. Both calcium and phosphorus fortify and rebuild tooth enamel.

Even though fresh fruits and vegetables contain some sugars, they balance that out with fiber and water to clean your teeth, making them a healthy diet choice. Fruits and vegetables also stimulate saliva production to rinse decay-causing acids and food particles away from teeth and gums. Plus, many contain vitamin C, which promotes healthy gums, and vitamin A, another nutrient that builds tooth enamel.

What Foods and Drinks Should You Avoid?

The foods and drinks you try to avoid in order to maintain a healthy diet and healthy weight are essentially the same foods you should avoid for the sake of your dental health. Sweet treats—candy (especially hard or sticky candy), cookies, cakes, muffins—all contain sugars that stick to your teeth. The bacteria in your mouth thrive on these sugars and release acids that cause tooth decay. Likewise starchy foods, such as potato chips and crackers, have the same effect.

Sodas, juices, sweetened teas and coffee, some sports drinks, lemonade and limeade literally bathe your teeth in sugar, which causes tooth decay. Choose water instead, and occasionally choose tap water, which is fluoridated.

In conjunction with a healthy diet, regular dental checkups are a must for maintaining oral health. So, schedule an appointment with Dr. Michel in Topeka, KS. We also conveniently serve patients in Emporia, Lawrence and Manhattan and surrounding areas.

Start Out the New School Year Right with a Dental Checkup

September 4, 2013

Fall is on the way and your children are heading back to school for another year of learning. Make sure they’re starting the school year out right by making sure they’ve had their regular dental checkup.  At Michel Dental, we recommend that once your child has reached the age of four or five that they should have two dental checkup appointments a year.

Your child’s dental checkup appointment is where we clean their teeth and gums as well as inspecting for any potential problems. This also allows us to make sure their teeth are growing and developing correctly. Brushing and flossing are important parts of home tooth care, and we’ll make sure your children are learning the correct techniques.

While back to school can often be a hectic time of year, it’s still important to make time to care for you and your child’s smile. With proper dental care, your teeth can last you for a lifetime. If it’s been a while since your child’s last dental checkup appointment, please give us a call today to schedule one. Helping your child start off the school year with a beautiful smile is as simple as picking up the phone.

At Michel Dental, we offer quality dental care for a distinctive smile. Our Topeka dental office serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

Preventative Dentistry from Dr. Michel

July 12, 2013

While we can treat your smile once problems arise, at Michel Dental we like to focus on preventative dentistry. Taking the time to care for your smile now can save you lots of hassle and problems in the future. This is as simple as making sure you visit us every six months for your checkup appointment.

The dental checkup is an integral part of preventative dentistry. We’ll thoroughly examine your entire smile, and use an intraoral camera to get a complete picture of the inside of your mouth. This technology allows us to fully examine your smile and be able to clearly see if there’s any potential issues with your teeth. This also allows us to clearly show you what’s going on with your smile so you fully understand any treatments you’re agreeing to.

We can also help you to review proper brushing and flossing techniques, and to address any questions or concerns that you might have. While visiting us twice a year might seem like a hassle, not going would leave your teeth susceptible to disease and decay.

Preventative dentistry plays an important role in your overall dental health. By visiting us regularly to make sure your teeth are clean and healthy, you’re helping to ensure the health of your teeth and giving us the opportunity to catch and correct small issues before they become a smile problem.

At Michel Dental, we offer quality dental care for a distinctive smile. Our Topeka dental office serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
