implant dentures Fort Worth

Your child should be naturally proud of his or her smile. It expresses joy, laughter, and fun! To make sure your child has a healthy and desirable smile, start early. Really early.

Dr. Mitch Conditt recommends that you bring your child in for their first dental visit soon after their first birthday. An early check is the first step in preventing troubles and setting the stage for lifelong dental health. Dr. Conditt will keep the visit short, but perform a thorough visual examination to make sure there are no concerns.

Dr. Conditt will advise you on good dental procedures at home, such as correct brushing and flossing. You will also be guided regarding healthy eating choices and the effects of poor choices. It is especially vital to keep your toddler from eating sticky or hard candies that lodge in molars and spaces between teeth. It is also important to monitor the amount of juice they drink and keep it in a cup instead of a bottle.

Any time sugary foods or drinks are in contact with teeth, the enamel is weakened from the acid those substances contain. Prolonged exposure begins to wear the enamel away, setting the stage for cavities. Unlike broken bones that regenerate, once enamel is gone, it’s essentially gone, though fluoride can remineralize weakened enamel to a small degree.

Promoting a healthy, low sugar diet is always prime for your toddler’s teeth. If your baby or toddler needs a bottle to calm down and go to sleep, make sure that the bottle contains only water.

Other vital habits are to brush and floss your teeth in front of your child. (If you have never been regular flossing – it’s time to start!) Let them see that it is a priority and a comfortable habit in your life. Brush their teeth with a soft bristled brush and a small amount of toothpaste. Let them try it, but always go over their teeth afterward, making sure each tooth is brushed. When finished, give them a cup of water to help rinse the toothpaste out.

Before coming to Mitch Conditt DDS in Fort Worth, meet with your child about the upcoming appointment and let them know that their teeth are going to be checked. Dr. Conditt will help your child feel proud of their effort and help them have a positive visit, the first of many to come.

Call Dr. Conditt at 682-200-1539 to schedule an appointment. Remember also to call any time between scheduled visits with any questions or concerns that might arise. We are enthusiastic about your child’s lifelong dental health.

Change Your Life In 4 Steps

December 8, 2017

Filed under: Dental Implants — admin @ 9:00 am

cosmetic dental and implants

Healthy teeth that work as nature intended are essential for a high quality of life and overall health. Folks who cope with dentures know what I’m talking about.

There is no question that dentures are preferable to a completely toothless mouth, but they are not issue free. Your mouth provides numerous basic functions, each of which can be impaired by the inconveniences of dentures.

Dentures can make it problematic to chew and taste food. It’s embarrassing to talk when they are slipping around in your mouth and laughing can dislodge them entirely. They can even make it hard to breathe – and it doesn’t get more basic than that.

Even if you have had dentures for many years, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are an unusually versatile individually-constructed substitute for dentures.

Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth and/or anchor over dentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow your dentist to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are implanted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, assembling a durable base for an over denture.

Here is the process:

1. Examination and Assessment
During your first visit, your dentist will take x-rays and analyze your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Your dentist will assess options with you and together you will develop a treatment plan.

2. Implant Placement
A complete tooth implant and restoration consists of the actual implant or root replacement, an abutment, and final restoration. The first step is to insert the titanium alloy implant into your jawbone. This is not as difficult or painful as it sounds. Most patients are surprised at how speedy and easy the procedure is.

3. Integration
Implant surgery would not be successful if your jawbone did not welcome an artificial and non-biological tooth root. Amazingly, in the vast majority of cases, the jawbone tightly fuses with the implant to construct an extremely heavy-duty foundation for the last restoration. It takes from three to six months for your jawbone to work its amazing magic.

4. Final Restoration
Whether your last step is a crown, bridge, or denture, your dentist will work with the lab to engineer a beautiful and functional restoration. A connecting piece called an abutment attaches the restoration to the artificial root(s). The crown, bridge, or denture is all that is visible at the end of the process. http://www.drmitchconditt.com/treatments.html restorations are practically indistinguishable from initial teeth.

Dental implant patients of all ages are excited about the better quality of life implants provide.

Are breathing, speaking, eating, tasting, and laughing important to you? Call us to schedule a consultation.

3 Smart Smile Solutions

December 1, 2017

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry — admin @ 9:00 am

smile makeovers Fort Worth

In today’s post we will focus on three innovative procedures used in cosmetic dental smile makeovers.

1. Tooth Implants
Tooth implants are altering the face of dentistry. For most patients, a dental implant is the optimal solution for a missing tooth. A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root of a tooth that has been extracted. The crown and supporting structure are securely attached to the post.

When the final crown is affixed, the dental implant is indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Dental implants have many vital advantages over dental bridges. If you are missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Conditt to learn more.

2. Invisible Braces
Invisible braces allow you to straighten your teeth discreetly because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn. There are a couple of different brands of invisible braces including Damon Braces and Invisalign clear aligners.

3. White Fillings
If you had cavities in the past, you may have old amalgam fillings. White fillings match your surrounding teeth, significantly improving your smile without crowns.

Mitch Conditt DDS has been providing unmatched dental care since 1985. We look forward to meeting you. Call us today at 682-200-1539.

7 Ways Bonding Can Beautify

November 17, 2017

Filed under: Restorative Dentistry — admin @ 9:00 am

Fort Worth Cosmetic Dentist

Dental bonding is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the Fort Worth area, but there are many patients who don’t know exactly what it is. Today in the Mitch Conditt DDS dental blog, we explain 7 ways dental bonding is used in cosmetic dentistry.

The dental bonding procedure uses a resin material that is sturdy and tooth-colored. It is applied to the teeth while soft, like putty, and then hardened or set with a special light. The material bonds with the tooth and can then be shaped and polished.

Dentists will usually consider the option of bonding when 1) decayed, 2) chipped, or 3) cracked teeth need to be repaired.

4) Large spaces between teeth can be filled with bonding material, and 5) roots can be protected by bonding after gums recede.

6) Discolored teeth can also be improved using the bonding process, and, since the material is easily shaped, teeth can be made to 7) look longer or just have the general shape changed. Bonding is often used, along with teeth whitening as part of a total smile makeover.

Hi. I’m Dr. Mitch Conditt.  My practice, Mitch Conditt DDS, offers the following services:

clear braces
porcelain veneers
dental crowns
teeth whitening

And more! So, if you are in the Weatherford, Aledo, or Parker County area and are in need of dental care or have cosmetic dentistry questions, please give us a call at 682-200-1539.

We hope to hear from you soon!

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Mitch Conditt DDS

November 10, 2017

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry — admin @ 9:00 am

Same Day Smile Makeovers At Mitch Conditt DDS In Fort Worth Have you ever wished your cosmetic dentist could glue new pearly white covers on your existing teeth as easy as you paint a wall in your house? Guess what? With porcelain veneers, it’s possible. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-shaped fronts that are permanently affixed to your natural teeth.

Unlike a crown procedure, your dentist does not need to remove tooth structure to place the restoration. If the teeth in question have decay, call 682-200-1539 to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.

At Mitch Conditt DDS, veneers are used alone and in combination with other cosmetic dental procedures in complete smile makeovers. Because they can repair cosmetic tooth misalignment in one visit, veneers are sometimes described as ‘instant orthodontics’.

Do veneers look like natural teeth?
Skilled dental lab artists create porcelain veneers with the color, reflective properties, and translucency of natural teeth: perfect natural teeth, that is. In addition, porcelain veneers can be constructed in any size or shape.

Are veneers
strong?
Porcelain veneers are fabricated out of extremely durable material. If you have questions about whether a veneer or dental crown is the best choice for you, talk to Mitch Conditt. Dr. Conditt will consider the size and condition of the tooth and its position in the mouth.

How long do veneers last?
Some smile makeover patients have veneers they received over 15 years ago. (And they still look great!) If properly cared for, veneers can last as long as dental crowns.

Are porcelain veneers affordable
?
The cost of cosmetic dental veneers at Mitch Conditt DDS is competitive with other premium cosmetic dental practices in the Fort Worth area. We use the top dental lab to create our veneers and a significant portion of the cost goes to the lab. Porcelain veneers are often less expensive than crowns and orthodontia. For questions about the cost of porcelain veneers, call our office at 682-200-1539.

Is Mouthwash A Must?

November 3, 2017

Filed under: Dental Health — admin @ 9:00 am

Aledo after hours dental

If you’ve ever walked the aisles of any Fort Worth, Texas drugstore, you know that there are many different types of mouthwash. Some tout their germ-killing abilities, others emphasize their fluoride content, and some claim to whiten teeth while freshening the breath. These are all great benefits, but will they make or break your dental health?

Many folks wonder if daily mouthwash should be part of their dental routine. Brushing and flossing are the two important habits that have the greatest impact on dental health, so if you’re doing these two things, is mouthwash needed?

At Mitch Conditt, DDS, when our dental patients ask about mouthwash, I tell them that as long as they follow the directions on the bottle, mouthwash may slightly benefit dental health, even if it doesn’t live up to every promise as advertised. Rinsing with a mouthwash that contains fluoride can’t hurt your teeth, but allowing a bit of diluted toothpaste to stay on tooth surfaces after brushing probably has the same benefit.

People who suffer from bad breath often believe that mouthwash can solve the trouble. Actually, mouthwashes that contain alcohol can worsen the issue because they can cause dry mouth – a condition that can contribute to bad breath. Mouthwashes without alcohol are generally more effective for freshening breath. These products are usually called flouride rinses.

If you have chronic bad breath, however, you should have your teeth checked for plaque build-up. No amount of mouthwash can remedy a mouth full of plaque. If your teeth and gums are healthy and you still suffer from bad breath, it’s important to know the cause. Bad breath can be an indication of a physical condition, so see your doctor soon.

Bottom line? Never substitute mouthwash for proper brushing and flossing. And if you use mouthwash, opt for a brand that contains fluoride and no alcohol.

Thank you for visiting the Fort Worth dental blog. We like to tackle important issues such as dental products, cosmetic dentistry procedures, over-the-counter teeth whitening, sedation dentistry, invisible braces, pediatric dentistry, oral care habits, and more!

My practice, Mitch Conditt DDS, provides quality dental care to our valued patients. If you are interested in making an appointment, please call us at 682-200-1539. A member of my caring staff can answer any questions you have about our services.

Why Look For The Seal?

October 27, 2017

Filed under: Dental Health — admin @ 9:00 am

Look For The Seal In Fort Worth

When you go to a drugstore or supermarket looking for toothpaste, mouthwash, teeth whitener, or other oral care product, make sure that it carries the seal of the American Dental Association (ADA). This is a quick way to make quick choices for the products you need to keep your mouth clean, healthy and free of dental caries.

You can count on the ADA, which only places their seal on a product after it has been evaluated to be safe as well as effective. This usually means that companies have to meet standards even higher than those required by law.

Making sure to purchase products with the seal is practically like shopping with your dentist or dental hygienist right by your side!

Hi, I’m Dr. Mitch Conditt of Mitch Conditt DDS in Fort Worth. We also serve the Weatherford, Aledo, and Parker County areas. We take pride in caring for our patients and, like the ADA, want you to have a healthy, beautiful smile.

Many of our patients want specifics about smile transformations. If you’d like to know what innovative cosmetic dentistry can do for your smile, schedule an appointment and we’ll advise you on possible courses of treatment.

We offer:

clear braces
porcelain veneers
dental crowns
teeth whitening

Contact us at 682-200-1539 to schedule a consultation, examination, or deep teeth cleaning treatment. We hope to hear from you soon!

Overcoming Anxiety With Gentle Dental At Mitch Conditt DDS

October 6, 2017

Filed under: Sedation Dentistry — admin @ 9:00 am

Fort Worth sleep dentistry

Dental anxiety and the more severe dental phobia impact many people, including some Mitch Conditt DDS patients. Today’s post answers some questions asked about this critical topic.

What are the long-term consequences of dental anxiety and dental phobia?
The most harmful consequence is when a dental phobic patient delays dental care until a pain becomes excruciating. At this point, the trouble is usually extremely advanced and requires extensive treatment.

Usually, many other dental issues in varying stages of progression occur alongside dental anxiety. Oral conditions eventually cause malfunction in other vital systems, risking general health and well-being.

In addition to the emotional distress about dental treatment, the patient who avoids dental care starts panicking about the condition of their teeth.

If I have dental phobia or anxiety, what should I do to protect my oral health?

Schedule an appointment with me, Dr. Mitch Conditt. Several distinct fears associated with dental anxiety and dental phobia include the following: fear of pain, fear of the unknown, fear of loss of control, and extreme embarrassment because of poor dental health are the most frequent concerns.

During your consultation, we will address each of your specific fears and discuss them.

I have helped many patients manage their anxiety during dental exams and treatment. First off, we take things slowly. I explain exactly what is going to happen before each procedure. If the patient is embarrassed about their lack of daily oral hygiene or dental cleanings in the past, I assure the patient that I have treated many people who have neglected their teeth and nothing going on in their mouth will shock me. I never, ever give stern lectures on proper oral care – though I do give friendly instruction if requested.

If local anesthetic is required, I employ my finely-honed practices which cause zero to minimal discomfort. We agree upon a nonverbal signal, such as raising a hand, to cue me to remove my instrument from the patient’s mouth. Then he/she can take a break, breathe deeply, regain composure, ask questions, and learn the status of the procedure.

These practices go a long way to calm anxious dental patients. At the very least, they help the patient get through the treatment that is needed promptly. With each subsequent visit, the patient is comforted by increased familiarity, greater confidence, and a strengthened relationship with me and my caring team.

What if I need more help to get through treatment?
In the Fort Worth dental community, the terms “sleep dentistry” and “oral conscious sedation” are both used, however, they are not exactly the same thing. There are three main types of sedation used in dentistry.

Level 1: Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide, or, informally, “laughing gas” is safe and effective. Nitrous oxide has been used in Fort Worth cosmetic dental offices for decades because in many ways it is the ideal mild sedative. It goes to work at the first inhalation, relaxes the patient during the treatment without rendering them completely unconscious, and wears off quickly after the mask is removed. And no needles are necessary – an essential feature for the needle-phobic.

Level 2: Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral sedatives don’t start working as promptly as nitrous oxide, but they help most patients achieve a deeper level of relaxation. These medications, however, do not usually cause complete unconsciousness. Thus, oral sedatives and nitrous oxide are used in “conscious” sedation. Two common sedatives used by Fort Worth dentists to calm patient’s fears are diazepam and triazolam.

Level 3: IV Sedation
IV sedation produces actual “sleep dentistry.” Most patients are completely oblivious to the dental procedures they are receiving. IV sedation is beneficial for root canals, wisdom teeth extractions, multi-procedure smile makeovers, and oral surgery.

To learn more about overcoming dental anxiety, sedation dentistry, or any other dental topic, call Mitch Conditt DDS at 682-200-1539.
