Your Topeka Painless Dentist

ThinkstockPhotos-166637318Many 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.

Outstanding smiles start with the best Silver Lake cosmetic dentist at Michel Dental.

78294804Teeth whitening, white crowns, and porcelain veneers are just part of cosmetic dental services at Michel Dental, the quality cosmetic dentist in Silver Lake, KS. Dr. Michael E. Michel creates outstanding, healthy and lasting smiles for patients of all ages.

You’ve taken great care of your teeth and gums. Exams, cleanings, preventing big problems by addressing small ones–you are on top of your dental health. Still, though, you aren’t satisfied with how your smile looks, and frankly, your self-image is suffering.

It’s time to consult Silver Lake cosmetic dentist, Michael E. Michel DDS. Wonderfully well-versed and skilled in general and restorative dentistry, Dr. Michel and his staff also offer state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry to individuals in the Silver Lake and Topeka area. They understand that a lasting smile needs to be an attractive smile. It’s an important part of your whole-mouth health and well-being.

Cosmetic dentistry in Silver Lakes gives you several aesthetic options.

When your mouth is healthy, free of cavities, gum disease and extensive restorations, your Silver Lake cosmetic dentist can present you with many ways to create the smile of your dreams. Dr. Michel will do a complete exam and some imaging before presenting you with the smile makeover plan that’s right for your whole-mouth health, well-being and budget.

For instance, if your teeth have a stained, yellowed appearance, professional Silver Lake teeth whitening can brighten your smile by several shades. Whether with custom-fitted, gel-filled trays at home or with in-office concentrated hydrogen peroxide, teeth whitening transforms smiles changed by:

  • aging
  • smoking
  • acidic foods
  • densely colored beverages such as black tea, cola and coffee
  • some medications
  • root canal therapy

Inoffice whitening protects gums and other soft tissues from sensitivity and takes only about an hour. Patients go home with a touch-up kit for results that last 1 to 2 years.

Porcelain veneers are a frequent stand-alone cosmetic treatment or may be added to teeth whitening. Veneers or dental laminates are thin, but durable, shells of translucent porcelain. Individually crafted according to dental impressions, veneers cover the front side of teeth that have:

  • chips or fractures
  • stains
  • gaps, crowding or misalignment problems
  • odd shapes or sizes

Dr. Michel prepares the tooth surface by removing a half-millimeter of enamel. When the veneers are ready, he glues them to the teeth, adjusting bite and shape. He may use cosmetic bonding with composite resin to achieve a final, smooth and complete look that lasts with good hygiene.

Other cosmetic-restorative services are available.

Combining aesthetic and restoration are Michel Dental services such as Invisalign® clear braces for a variety of orthodontic issues in older teens and adults who want a straight smile without obvious brackets and wires. Tooth-colored fillings and white crowns restore teeth compromised by injury or decay for a just-like-new appearance. Fixed bridgework fills in gaps left by missing teeth, improving facial structure, speaking and eating.
