    Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Laser Dentistry

    November 30th, 2010
    There’ve been a lot of great breakthroughs in recent years in the field of dentistry.  Like every other field of medical technology, dental care has seen some great things happen over the past few years.  I’m Dr. Eric Hibbs, and people ask me all the time about laser dentistry services.
    Some people even picture high-tech science fiction laser guns and get a little intimidated.  There’s really no reason to get intimidated about laser dentistry, in fact laser dentistry makes life easier on the patients and the job easier for the dentist. Some of the laser techniques that are commonly available make everyday procedures quicker and less painful for patients.

    Benefits of Laser Dentistry

    Laser dentistry makes many common procedures much easier to perform.  For patients this is a big benefit. I know that no one wants to spend more time undergoing dental procedures than they have to. That’s where laser dentistry can really benefit patients.

    Many dental procedures can be performed significantly faster than with traditional methods.  What’s even better about laser dentistry techniques is the fact that recovery time is sped up for many dental procedures.  Laser dental techniques also make stitches unnecessary in many cases where they would have been previously required.  This is a big benefit for both the patients and dentists.

    To put it simply, laser dental techniques can make your next dental procedure easier to perform, and provide you with a much shorter recovery time. That’s good news, no matter how you look at it. It’s an awesome thing when breakthroughs in technology make life easier for people and take complicated procedures and make them less burdensome.

    If you’re looking for a new dentist or if you’re curious about laser dentistry, please call my Dallas office at 214-DENTIST or click here to schedule an appointment.

    Sedation Dentistry Can Help Alleviate Fears

    November 22nd, 2010
    We all have something that we are very afraid of. These fears vary from person to person, and can cause us a lot of problems. Many people have such a fear of going to see the dentist that it not only causes them inconvenience,
    it can also cause them some serious health problems down the road.
    I’m Dr. Eric Hibbs. With years of dental practice in the Dallas area, I know how difficult it is for some people to get past their fears and get to see a dentist. The good news for people with this fear is the availability of doctors trained in sedation dentistry.

    What is Sedation Dentistry?

    This kind of dental service is perfect for people who just can’t get past the anxiety of seeing a dentist to receive good care for their teeth. Sedation dentistry requires additional training for the dentist to deal with some of the techniques involved.

    A standard experience with sedation dentistry starts with a consultation. If a follow up visit is deemed necessary, the dentist will give medication to the patient. This medication is to be taken before the dental appointment. Patients will become very relaxed and free from their anxieties due to the medication. They will not be completely asleep, but they will be able to get their teeth examined and worked on without the fear and anxiety that they normally have. This is the perfect solution for people who can’t get to the dentist any other way.

    If you have questions about sedation dentistry or any other dental services, please call my office at 214-DENTIST to set up an appointment. My office is located at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216 Dallas, Tx 75209. You can also click here to set up an appointment with me, Dr. Hibbs.

    All About Dentistry

    November 14th, 2010
    What would you do today if you had time to do anything at all? I’m guessing that most of you didn’t answer “go see the dentist.” That’s not unusual; most people avoid going to see the dentist unless they have problems. For those of us in the dentistry field, that is a concern. Not so much that those who practice dentistry want to be first on your list of things to do.
    I’m a dentist, and have my office at Dallas, Tx, and I’ll admit that seeing the dentist is not on the top of my list for things to do in my spare time, but I do make time for it on a regular basis because I know how important skilled dentistry services are to my health and well-being.

    Not only does seeing the dentist regularly keep your smile looking great and your mouth clean and healthy, it can also detect the early signs of other, more serious health issues.

    Dentistry is Key to Your Overall Health

    Taking care of your teeth is so important to your health that it’s a shame more people don’t take the time to do it. You can’t get by on brushing and flossing alone. While these steps are important, there’s more to dentistry than simply brushing twice a day.

    A skilled dentist such as me, Dr. Hibbs, can help you when you have problems such as cavities or chipped teeth.

    Quite simply put, seeking skilled, professional dentistry services such as the ones that I offer at my office located at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216, 75209 is crucial if you want to stay healthy.

    If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, or if you are looking for a new dentist, please click on this link. You can set up an appointment to see me Dr. Hibbs at my Dallas office. I look forward to meeting you.

    Cosmetic Dentistry – An Option To Consider

    November 6th, 2010
    We all want to look and feel our best. If you’ve lost teeth or suffer from any kind of unsightly dental condition, you know just how difficult these things can be. It can be a great blow to your self-esteem when your teeth are not all they can be. I see people with all kinds of tooth problems on a regular basis at my Dallas office located at 5600 W. Lovers Lane Suite 216, 75209.

    My name is Dr. Eric Hibbs,

    I’m a leading dentist serving the Dallas area, and it’s my job to help my patients keep their teeth healthy and strong. Sometimes you can do everything you’re supposed to do and still suffer from tooth loss. The good news for people who have had to deal with these types of issues is that cosmetic dentistry has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years.

    You Don’t Have to Settle for Dentures

    Tooth loss used to mean that you either dealt with not having a tooth or you got dentures. There simply were not a lot of options. Today, however, cosmetic dentistry has a few more things that can be done for people who have lost teeth. There are dental implants available that can replace a lost tooth. These implants look and feel like a real tooth and patients love the feeling they get from having one put in and being able to avoid dentures. This is just one procedure that cosmetic dentistry can help you with. There are also easier ways to fix crooked or uneven teeth, and some great new ways to whiten your teeth for a more attractive smile. If you’ve thought about cosmetic dentistry but have some questions, please click on this link to set up an appointment with me.

    You can also call my Dallas office at 214-DENTIST to talk with me about your concerns. Cosmetic dentistry just might be the right solution to the concerns that you have.
