Dr. George Metal Free Dentistry Delray Beach

Dr. George Dental in Delray Beach believes in proactive dentistry. He also believes in metal free dentistry.

As an advocate for metal free dentistry Dr. George has helped hundreds of people like you get healthy with non-metal dental restorations.

No More Silver with Metal Free Dentistry

Being metal free means removing and replacing your restorations. That means old silver amalgam fillings and dental crowns.

With metal free dentistry you aren’t going to feel the metal allergies that you have been prone to your entire life. You won’t be subjected to mercury poisoning either.

If you follow this dental blog, and you should, you will know that silver amalgam fillings contain mercury. You will also recall that mercury is toxic, especially when released into the bloodstream.

When the FDA and the AMA say that silver amalgam fillings are safe they are talking about fillings that are fully intact. They aren’t talking about old fillings that are cracked and broken. Cracked, broken and leaky fillings mean mercury is getting into your bloodstream.

The best way to prevent toxic mercury from entering your bloodstream is to schedule an appointment for old silver amalgam filling removal and replacement.

Old Silver Amalgams and Metal Free Dentistry

When you first visit with Dr. George and his team your mouth will be examined to check for damage to your restorations. Your Delray Beach dentist will check for leaks as well.

When fillings get old, or even before, they have a tendency to expand and contract when there is a change in temperature. This causes them to leak. Leaky fillings are even more reason for replacement.

Replacing and Restoring Silver Amalgam Fillings

If you have old silver amalgam fillings, Dr. George and his team will remove them in a safe environment before refilling with a biocompatible material that is matched to the rest of the tooth.

In some cases you may need to crown the tooth because the filling was large and because it caused additional damage.

If this is the case, your Delray Beach dentist will cap the tooth colored filling with a crown that looks just like the tooth. This will protect it from further damage.

Metal Free Dentistry for Good Health

Professional Teeth Whitening is Safer

If you have been thinking about restoring your smile send a direct message to Dr. George Dental for a Kör professional teeth whitening consultation.

Dr. George Sanchez is a cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach who has the experience and continued education to change your smile. However, not everyone needs a complete smile makeover.

For some all that is needed is professional teeth whitening using Kör Whitening products.

Professional Teeth Whitening and Kör

Kör is the dentist’s choice and gives much better results than over the counter rinses, strips, pastes and gels. It is also much safer than the products you find at your local pharmacy.

Dr. George Sanchez uses Kör professional teeth whitening because it is safe and gives great results. Each tray is custom made to fit your teeth giving you a secure fit.

Sadly those over the counter trays are one size fits all. One size fits all is not good when it comes to teeth bleaching. Firstly, they aren’t made to fit your teeth. Secondly, they will leak causing gum sensitivity or even damage.

Kör is proven to be safe for teeth and gums and can lighten your teeth up to 10 shades. If you have yellow or brown teeth or teeth that are stained from coffee, tea or red wine, you’ll love the results.

Delray Beach Professional Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth has never been easier. All you have to do is schedule an appointment with Dr. George Dental.

Dr. George Dental will examine your teeth and gums. In addition the team will take x-rays and impressions so that your new Kör whitening trays fit perfectly.

When your new Kör trays are ready Dr. George will explain how to use them and prescribe the patented Kör gel to use with your custom made trays.

You will wear your new custom made whitening trays every night or as per your Delray Beach dentist’s instructions.

You can expect a beautiful white and bright smile in about 14 days. In addition don’t be surprised if those nasty intrinsic stains that you have from too much fluoride use disappear as well.

Kör is an amazing product that works on just about everything except dental restorations.

If you have fillings, veneers, crowns or dental implants professional teeth whitening will not work. This is because Kör only works on natural teeth.

Kör in Delray Beach

Professional teeth whitening can dramatically change your smile. Call or send a direct message and schedule an appointment with Dr. George Dental today.

Dental Checkups for Overall and Oral Health

Dental Checkups are an essential part of life

Your mouth is the road to health and if you aren’t seeing your dentist on a regular basis you could be setting you and the rest of your body up for all kinds of issues, including stroke and heart attack.

Dr. George Dental explains that there really is a connection between overall and oral health. Just ask the researchers and they will agree that unhealthy teeth and gums, especially gums, could lead to other health issues.

Inflammation and Gum Disease

Most dental researchers believe the connection has to do with inflammation. If you have gingivitis or periodontal disease your gums are swollen and will usually bleed.

Periodontal patients often have gaps between the roots of the teeth and gums. Those gaps or pockets are filled with bacteria, tartar and plaque.

According to your family dentist in Delray Beach, chronic periodontitis, which has no cure, is the number one reason adults lose teeth.

In addition, chronic periodontal disease patients have a higher risk of disease.

These diseases include:

  • Heart Disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Obesity
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Cancer

Dental Checkups Prevent Serious Disease

According to researchers these diseases are at the tip of the iceberg. Firstly, bacteria cause serious problems with other organs in your body. Secondly, bacteria attach itself to the walls of your blood vessels and heart.

Preventing serious disease starts with good oral hygiene and dental checkups. From brushing twice and flossing once a day to paying close attention to your diet, you are in charge of your teeth and gums.

If you are unsure when you last visited your Delray Beach dentist it is definitely time to call or text Dr. George Dental.

Whether you suffer from dental anxiety, aren’t having any problems or aren’t sure you can afford it, things will only get worse for both overall and oral health. Another reason dental checkups are vital for oral and overall health.

Feeling No Pain

If you aren’t feeling any pain, your gums are pink and healthy and you don’t have any chipped or cracked teeth it is still a good idea to schedule regular dental checkups.

When you visit with your Dr. George Sanchez regularly your dental restorations are checked as is your oral cavity for oral cancer.

Regular dental checkups are for healthy and unhealthy mouths because even so-called healthy mouths can be hiding something. Furthermore, regular appointments help you keep teeth for the rest of your life.

Dental Checkups for the Whole Family

If you would like to schedule dental checkups for you and your family dentist in Delray Beach, call or send a text to Dr. George Dental today.

Holiday Foods to Watch Out For

It’s that time of the year again. Lots of parties and lots of holiday foods that you shouldn’t be eating. But, hey, it’s the holidays so why not enjoy right?

While the holidays are meant to enjoy the good things in life, those good things aren’t always the best for your teeth. In fact, some can be downright dangerous.

Not So Great Holiday Foods for Teeth

Dr. George Dental understands the temptations are hard to resist, but when you do, you’ll be rewarded with fewer dental visits in the New Year.

Holiday Foods and Chewy Yummies

Gummy bears and other chewy candy will have a tendency to rip the restorations straight out of the tooth. In addition, they are loaded with sugar much like most holiday foods.

If not damaging your fillings or crowns, they are remaining between teeth eating away at the enamel.

Dr. George Sanchez recommends that you avoid gummies, salt water taffy and other soft chewy candies that don’t look safe. This includes those oh so trendy sour chewy rainbow strips in your favorite flavors.

Dried Fruit and Holiday Foods

That dried fruit that your favorite client sends you every year isn’t the best option for your teeth. Dried mangos, apricots, figs and dates are delicious, but best these holiday foods are best enjoyed in moderation.

Dried fruit will stick to the backs of your teeth eroding away the enamel. Unless you are able to rinse with water right away your teeth will pay the price.

Your dentist in Delray Beach recommends eating your favorite dried fruit as part of a meal to avoid tooth and restoration damage.

Spritz Acidic Holiday Drinks

Your favorite spritzy mixer is not the best option for teeth. Red Bull, Champagne and cranberry juice may be your favorite beverage during the holidays, but it isn’t the safest option for teeth.

Soda, energy drinks and sports drinks are loaded with sugar as is the cranberry juice. Unless you are making your own juice from the berry there will always be additional sugar.

The acid in the drinks eats away at the enamel on your teeth as well making soda, energy and sports drinks double trouble for teeth and gums.

Great Treats for Teeth

Instead of chewy candy and dried fruit try munching on carrot sticks and celery. Enjoy sweet and savory dips and you’ll barely miss bad holiday foods for teeth.

Drink water or diluted fruit juices instead of soda, energy and sports drinks for healthy teeth.

If you drink water resist the urge to overdo it with the citrus slices as citrus damages teeth.

If you would like to learn more about the holidays and healthy teeth, schedule an appointment with Dr. George Dental today.

Invisalign® Not Ordinary Clear Braces

If you have always wanted straighter teeth but didn’t want the hassle of conventional braces schedule an appointment for Invisalign® with Dr. George Dental. Chances are you are an excellent candidate for invisible braces, but not just any clear braces.

Having a dentist who can take you through the process is the most important part of the procedure.

Invisalign® for a New Smile

Your cosmetic dentist in Delray Beach is a licensed and experienced Invisalign® provider who will determine if you and clear aligners to straighten teeth are a good fit.

This is extremely important. If you have ever done a search online for clear braces you’ll know that many companies offer tooth straightening braces without a doctor’s consent. In other words, your treatment is never monitored by a licensed cosmetic dentist.

Taking a picture and sending it in to a company that you don’t know much about is a recipe for disaster.

You may have sent two pages of wants for your online clear braces, but they will never be addressed as there is no doctor there to help you along the way.

The Professional Way

Dr. George is a cosmetic dentist who will be honest with you when it comes to clear braces. In other words, if you aren’t a good fit, he will not provide them but rather recommend another treatment.

If you have a severe under bite or an extremely large gap between your front teeth you might not see great results with Invisalign®.

If this is your case, your Delray Beach Invisalign® dentist will probably suggest conventional wires and brackets.

Invisalign® is great for people with mild to moderate problems. For example, if you have slightly tipped lower teeth or eye teeth that don’t sit right, this type of tooth straightening system is usually your best bet.

Not Your Mothers Braces

One of the best things about clear plastic aligners is comfort. You won’t have to have twice monthly adjustments as you would with conventional wires and brackets.

With Invisalign® you’ll wear between 10 and 40 sets for between 9 and 18 weeks with 12 being the average.

The only time you will remove your aligners is when you eat, and brush and floss. You need to be diligent as your aligners must be worn 22 hours every day for best results.

Delray Beach Invisalign® Dentist

If you would like more information regarding Invisalign® in Delray Beach, call or send a direct message and talk to a team member from Dr. George Dental.

You will love what the best cosmetic dentist in Florida can do for your smile. Call for more information today.

Family Dental Care in Delray Beach

Dental care is easy when you become a patient of Dr. George in Delray Beach. Dr. George and his team are ready to care for you and your family with both restorative and cosmetic dental treatments that take care of chipped, cracked and stained teeth. You can even replace missing teeth in Delray Beach with dental implants.

Everything You Need in Delray Beach

Dr. George Sanchez prides himself on offering patients the finest in dental care. From mercury free dentistry to complete mouth makeovers you are in the best hands when you become a patient of this family dentist in Delray Beach.

The Importance of Dental Care

If you follow this dental blog you will recall the connection between oral and overall health. The connection is gum disease.

Because gum disease is caused by bacteria, plaque and even tartar flow into the bloodstream. That plaque attaches itself to the walls of your blood vessels and the arteries in your heart just like it does to your teeth and gums.

Gingivitis Requires Dental Care

Gingivitis is the less serious form of gum disease and is curable with regular dental care and good oral hygiene. However, if it is left untreated, it can easily progress to periodontitis.

Dental Care and Periodontal Disease

Periodontitis or periodontal disease eats away at your gum line. When this happens it causes bleeding gums and pockets to form between gums and teeth. Those pockets are often filled with infection that could lead to serious complications.

Unfortunately, periodontal disease is not curable, but can be controlled. If you have periodontitis, your Delray Beach family dentist will come up with a plan that will get your teeth and gums back to health.

Regular Dental Checkups

The best way to prevent gum disease is with regular dental checkups in Delray Beach. Regular dental checkups prevent tooth decay and gum disease, but they can also detect more serious issues such as oral cancer.

Comprehensive Dental Examinations

Comprehensive dental exams in Delray Beach help detect oral cancer in its earliest stages.

With a comprehensive dental exam you have a much better chance of surviving oral cancer as Dr. Sanchez looks for any lumps, bumps, patches or sores.

He will also check your neck and throat for anything that doesn’t look right. If he discovers anything suspicious, he will send it off to a lab for further examination.

Family Dentist Appointments

It is always the time to schedule dental appointments for your entire family. Call or text and make them today.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Beautiful Healthy Smiles

Cosmetic dentistry can truly change your life. Don’t forget that one of the biggest impressions you can make is your toothy grin. In general, when people see you flash your pearly whites all they want to do is run over, shake your hand and say, “Hello.”

A smile makes you look friendly and approachable. A smile also puts you in the lead if you are on the hunt for a new job or in line for a promotion. However, not everyone has a smile that is worthy of flashing.

Beautiful Smiles in Delray Beach

Dr. George Dental believes in healthy and beautiful smiles using mercury free dentistry and tooth colored restorations. Metal restorations are not as safe as natural colored ones. In fact, they can be downright dangerous.

If you follow the Dr. George Dental Blog you’ll know that he and his team practice mercury free dentistry. This is something that some dentists in Delray Beach don’t bother with.

Mercury Free and Cosmetic Dentistry

Firstly, mercury free dentistry in Delray Beach is available for everyone. Secondly, Dr. George believes in safe and biocompatible dentistry. In lay man’s terms, that means you are in excellent hands.

If you have old restorations that need to be removed you’ll be glad you put your mouth in the capable hands of Dr. George and his team.

Your New Smile in Delray Beach

From all white dental crowns to metal free dental implant posts your Delray Beach dentist is ready to make you smile again.

You are in the best place you can be when you put your teeth and gums in the hands of Dr. George Dental.

Even smile makeovers are an easy fix because your Florida cosmetic dentist is a licensed cosmetic dentist who believes in giving you the best smile possible, Dr. George also uses human grade nonmetal products.

Smile Makeovers Not Always a Big Deal

Furthermore, what most people don’t realize is that a smile makeover doesn’t always include a complete overhaul of your teeth and gums. In some cases your stained teeth can be brought back to life with a professional teeth whitening session.

Ask Dr. George about custom made whitening trays and same day whitening as well. The dental practice in Delray Beach is equipped to give you a beautiful smile in a day or in a couple of weeks. As a result you’ll have a dazzling smile.

Of course, this treatment only works on natural teeth. If you have restored teeth Dr. George Dental will recommend restoration or replacement.

A Smile Makeover is Life Changing

A smile makeover may be just what you need to boost your self-esteem. It’s hard to turn up the corners on your mouth if your smile is less than appealing.

Broken, chipped, stained and missing teeth underride confidence and make it difficult to be personable and outgoing, especially if the tooth you are missing is in the front or the majority of your teeth are brown because of years of tobacco use.

Dr. George Dental Practice makes it easy to feel good about your smile and outlook on life with restorative and cosmetic dental treatments that will literally change your life.

Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry in Delray Beach

Other 21st century dental technologies you will find at your Delray Beach dental office include Invisalign®, the clear way to straight teeth, dental implants, same day dentistry and of course tooth colored fillings.

The Personal Touch for your Smile Makeover

Everyone is different and that’s why your smile makeover is customized to you, your face shape and your personality.

The big and bold white smile that your best friend was born with may not be suitable for you and is best left for her larger than life personality.

The consultation is the key and before anything is done you and Dr. George Sanchez will chat with each other so that your perfect smile makeover is suited to you and only you.

A Smile Makeover More than Restorations

A smile makeover is more than restorations and cosmetic alterations. If you have gum disease Dr. George will seek out the best treatments before proceeding with any cosmetic changes.

Other types of changes that your Delray Beach dentist might recommend for a smile makeover include a gum lift or bone graft.

If you are having dental implants a bone graft might be necessary before implant placement.

Although the Food and Drug Administration and the American Dental Association both believe that silver amalgam fillings are safe, they don’t say the same thing about mercury. Don’t forget that mercury is part of your filling.

If your filling breaks or leaks you are exposed to mercury. This means that toxin is going directly into your bloodstream through your broken filling.

Replacing Your Silver Amalgam Fillings

Your Delray Beach family dentist only uses human grade dental materials to fill your teeth. To be specific, these materials are matched to your natural tooth and are bio compatible to the rest of your body. You won’t have to worry about toxic materials entering your bloodstream because you cracked your tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Solutions with Dr. George

Before you take out your old fillings consider other options. Of course you can use tooth colored fillings or go for something more dramatic it really is up to you and Dr. George.

Cosmetic dentistry is life changing and not always as invasive as you might think. For example, if your natural teeth are stained all you might need is a professional teeth whitening session.

If chips and cracks are an issue, talk to your Delray Beach dentist about cosmetic dental bonding. Dental bonding is the perfect solution if you would rather not say yes to permanent solutions such as porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns.

Of course if you are considering a more permanent cosmetic dental solution Dr. George Sanchez is ready to offer his recommendations.

Sparkling Solutions for Your New Smile

Invisalign® for a Professional Touch

A straighter smile starts with Invisalign® in Delray Beach. Clear plastic aligners are the perfect solution for people with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Removable clear braces are also great if you aren’t too keen on the idea of wires and brackets.

Even though conventional braces have gotten more invisible over the years, they still show. Invisalign® is the clear way to a new smile. In fact, the only people that will know you are having your teeth straightened are you and Dr. George Dental.

What is Invisalign®?

If you have seen those internet adds regarding clear plastic aligners, the Invisalign® system is similar, but not that.

Monitored by a dentist in Delray Beach you can be assured you are in good hands. Your Invisalign® dentist would never recommend removable braces if you have a severed under or overbite.

Because some people are not suitable for clear plastic aligners they can do damage if they decide to order aligners online.

Invisalign® has been around for decades and gradually moves teeth into the desired position.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

This tooth straightening system uses a series of 11 to 31 aligners that the patient swaps out every fourteen days. Your Invisalign® prescription, which varies from person, is customized to give you a beautiful and healthy smile.

You will wear your aligners for 22 hours every day. The only time you will take them out is when you brush, floss, eat and drink. You must be diligent and wear your aligners for this amount of time. If you don’t, you’ll be wearing them for much longer than you would have had you followed instructions.

Why Straight Teeth are Healthy Teeth

Straight teeth benefit your entire smile. Both teens and adults enjoy fewer cavities and are usually free from gum disease as long as good oral hygiene habits are practiced. Aligners are also safer than conventional braces. Wires and brackets hinder good oral hygiene and could break causing mouth injuries.

How Long Does Invisalign® Take to Work?

According to your Invisalign® provider in Delray Beach most patients see results in about 12 months. With that being said, some have straighter teeth in 6 months while others have something to smile about in 18. It really is up to the individual.

Schedule a Consultation in Delray Beach

A straight smile does wonders for your oral and overall health, but it can also boost your self-esteem. Having a healthy and beautiful grin makes you and everyone else around just a little bit happier.

If you would like to learn more about straighter teeth with Invisalign®, call or send a direct message to Dr. George Dental today.
