Plano, Texas Dentist Mark Sowell, DDS Attends Continuing Education Programs for Cosmetic Dentistry

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Plano, TX (PRWEB) May 21, 2015

In April, Dr. Sowell attended a two-day hands-on course in implant dentistry at the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona. The intensive course covered the essentials of treatment planning, placement and restoration of dental implants in both simple and complex implant reconstructions.

“Dental implants are an important component of my dental practice,” said Dr. Sowell. “It is important to stay on the leading edge of implant dentistry by practicing the latest techniques and gaining exposure to the newest materials available.”

Following the dental implant training, Dr. Sowell attended the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry’s (AACD) 31st Annual Scientific Session, in San Francisco. Dr. Sowell has been an Accredited Member of the AACD since 2002 and is the only accredited cosmetic dentist in Plano, Texas.

“Many patients are surprised to learn that the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty and that there is no formal training requirement to call oneself a cosmetic dentist. Becoming an accredited member of the AACD was important to me to distinguish myself as an experienced and skillful cosmetic dentist,” said Dr. Sowell.

The AACD is the world’s largest international dental organization dedicated to advancing excellence in the art and science of cosmetic dentistry through responsible esthetics.

The conference featured more than 48 hands-on workshops, 85 lectures, and 100 speakers. Roughly 2,000 dental professionals attended the event, which is geared toward dentists, lab technicians, hygienists, and dental team members to help them refine their skills, learn the latest techniques, and share ideas.

“The courses I’ve completed are extremely intense,” said Dr. Sowell. “Beyond the high level of clinical education offered, these are unique opportunities to spend time with colleagues and gain exposure to the latest materials and techniques in cosmetic and implant dentistry.”

Learn how to systematically analyze cases and identify risk factors
Learn smile design strategies to deliver exceptional results for patients

Agoura Hills Dentist, Dr. Aaron Choroomi, Is Now Offering a Promotion on Fastbraces

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2015

Agoura Hills dentist, Dr. Aaron Choroomi, is now offering patients a promotional price on Fastbraces. The Agoura Hills dentist provides this realignment option at the discounted price of $ 3495.

“Patients that want to achieve straight teeth should not have to wait years to see results,” Dr. Choroomi explained. “Ideally, the treatment with Fastbraces can be completed within a single year.”

Fastbraces have many advantages over traditional braces, including the following:

Completion in 3-12 months
The crown and root move together
Easy to clean brackets
Greater comfort
Less sensitivity

“Offering such a valuable promotion on Fastbraces encourages patients to visit our practice,” the Agoura Hills dentist said. “We proudly offer many different restorative and cosmetic options to help people achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

The preparation necessary to qualify for Fastbraces or other cosmetic options must begin with addressing oral health problems. Deep cleaning, a thorough visual examination, and x-rays reveal any restorative needs that an individual interested in improving his or her smile may have. Decay removal and restoration with filling material strengthens a weak tooth if it is possible to save. Other teeth may require extraction if there is not enough health left after broken or decayed material is removed. The dentist is able to perform a smile restoration by offering dentures, dental implants, or bridges to fill spaces once occupied by natural teeth.

A patient that has their teeth brought back to optimal health and cleanliness is open to a world of cosmetic options. Fastbraces or other alignment corrections may be the beginning of a full smile makeover. Dental bonding and dental veneers mask areas of wear on the enamel surface, in addition to obvious cracks and chips that cause a structural imbalance. These two options are alternatives to bleaching solutions to achieve a whiter shade for patients that are concerned with significant discoloration.

People in need of professional oral care are less likely to visit if they feel intimidated about treatment prices. Dr. Choroomi, Agoura Hills holistic dentist, always offers different promotions to encourage current and brand new patients to visit the office to receive the individual attention that each person needs.

Vitamin Deficiency Places Anchorage Youth At Risk For Oral and Systemic Illness: Says Anchorage Dentist

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Anchorage, AK (PRWEB) February 19, 2015

Kids can fight monster mouth and support good oral health when they follow the rule “2 minutes 2 times”, which means brushing their teeth for two minutes twice each day.

Other good dental health suggestions for kids include limiting sugary foods and snacks and choosing to drink more water and less soda pop. Did you know that even “healthful” fruit juices and milk are high in sugar and can cause tooth decay? A good rule of thumb is to not consume foods with more than 30% of carbohydrates being composed of sugar. “Orange juice is one of the major offenders” says Kiley. “The average glass of orange juice has 90% of its carbohydrate calories from sugar. Oranges are great but, for good health, steer clear of orange juice, unless you dilute it with water.”

Anchorage Dentist Kiley also finds younger patients are drinking less milk than in previous years. Consequently, the State of Alaska found the incidence of rickets, a bone deformity, to increasing in the state. Rickets is a deficiency of Vitamin D that is usually added to milk. Although a human body can produce this “vitamin” when receiving several minutes of strong daily sun exposure on the skin, the low levels of sunshine during long Alaska winters means a lower likelihood of not getting a sufficient amount of Vitamin D. The only viable, and safe, alternative is to get Vitamin D from a daily diet. Great sources of Vitamin D include fish such as salmon, sardines, and tuna, all of which are plentiful here.

Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and teeth, but also in regulating enzymes that are involved in the body’s response to gum disease, heart disease and cancer. Because it can reduce the activity of certain enzymes called MMPs, it is essential to supplement the Alaskan winter diet with Vitamin D.

Another way to boost Vitamin D levels is by taking a quality daily supplement. Adults continue to need Vitamin D, but lifestyle, clothing choices, cosmetics and sunblock may limit sun exposure, thereby reducing access to this naturally occurring source.

For women, especially those who may be thin, post menopausal, and with a family history of osteoporosis, vitamin D is essential for the health of bones including the jaw, where bone loss and related infection can result in periodontal disease and tooth loss.

According to Dr. Kiley, Vitamin D may be even more important than many, even some scientists and health professionals, realize .

National Wear Red Day (also celebrated in February) is a heart disease awareness campaign specifically targeting women. The British Medical Journal reported a 2014 study that showed low levels of Vitamin D were linked to an increased risk of premature death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. Current studies at Johns Hopkins are trying to determine if heart attack risk is then reduced when Vitamin D levels are returned to “normal.”

Several organizations have suggested that those in northern climates should get Vitamin D levels checked. A 2006 Study by the Mayo Clinic reported that they were finding 36% of young adults, and 57% of the general adult population had inadequate Vitamin D levels.

Several medical laboratories in Alaska can measure Vitamin D levels and help guide a person in making appropriate choices.

Agoura Hills Dentist, Dr. Amir Choroomi, Is Now Offering Several Special Offers for the New Year

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2015

Agoura Hills cosmetic dentist, Dr. Amir Choroomi, is now offering several valuable specials. Patients can take advantage of $ 185 Zoom Laser Whitening, $ 595 porcelain crown restorations, or a $ 45 professional cleaning and polishing. These smile improvements are just in time for those who are looking to improve their smiles for the New Year.

Dr. Amir Choroomi enjoys giving patients the opportunity to beautify a flawed smile. “It can be embarrassing to get together with family and friends and feel the need to hide the condition of teeth. Cleaning and teeth whitening treatments remove years of stains in as little as an hour,” Dr. Choroomi said.

In addition to visible improvements, a professional cleaning can also improve the following:

Bad breath caused by bacteria buildup
The rate of re-staining by applying a polish
Texture smoothing by tartar removal

“Patients often hesitate to attend their recommended cleaning and examinations the longer they go without one to avoid potential cost. Unfortunately, allowing certain conditions to go undiagnosed or without repair increases the complexity of required procedures,” warned Dr. Choroomi. “A New Year discount influences the decision to make an appointment to start the new year in the right direction.”

The Agoura Hills dentist is happy to offer a dental exam, X-rays, and polishing along with the discounted cleaning for a great deal. There may be underlying issues that can only be identified through the X-rays, making them a necessary part of comprehensive care. Great health opens up a doorway of beautifying opportunity with the greatest result possible from any treatments.

Restorations make it possible for any patient with damaged or missing teeth have a complete smile again. Porcelain crowns resemble the color, shape, and size of natural surrounding teeth, but they can get expensive. A patient should never have to worry about cost when it comes to such an important part of the appearance. Dr. Choroomi is an experienced Agoura Hills dentist that is ready to perform the procedures necessary for every patient to have the greatest health, function, and appearance possible for their teeth. He offers such procedures as dental veneers, Zoom whitening, white fillings, Fastbraces and dental implants.

Local Dentist Advancing Excellence in Jacksonville, FL

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) November 10, 2014

When Dr. Donald Alexander founded his Jacksonville dental office, he made a commitment to offer excellence in dental care. Continuing education and advanced dental services are foundations for the local practice.

“Dentistry is constantly evolving. There have been more advances in the field of restorative and cosmetic dentistry in the last 15 years than in the past century,” said Dr. Alexander. “It’s important to me that my team is always striving for excellence and never stops learning.”

There have been two important additions to the Jacksonville family dental practice in 2014.

Dr. Alexander welcomed a new registered dental hygienist, Rim Al Masari. Ms. Masri practiced general dentistry in Damascus, Syria for more than 25 years. She moved to the United States and received her dental hygiene license in the state of Florida in March 2014. In October, she received certification in nitrous oxide psychosedation.

“Our practice will benefit greatly from Ms. Masri’s experience. She has already become a tremendous asset and I look forward to utilizing her talents and expertise,” said Dr. Alexander.

This year, Alexander Dentistry also began offering a new product to patients. The PerioScience Antioxidant Oral Care System has a unique suite of antioxidant-based products. These products are available for sale in Dr. Alexander’s Jacksonville dental office as well as on the practice website,

“I am thrilled to offer this incredible dental health system to our patients,” said Dr. Alexander. “These are world-class products that work in concert with the body’s natural defense system to promote optimal oral health.”

PerioSciences products contain powerful antioxidants that reduce inflammation to prevent gum disease, promote saliva production as a natural antibacterial agent and neutralize bad bacteria for fresher breath. In addition, patients can find products that effectively whiten teeth, minimize tooth sensitivity and hydrate dry mouths.

Dr. Alexander also completed a continuing education course on Lasers in Periodontal Treatment in San Diego, California. Taught by Dr. Samuel B. Low, Professor Emeritus at the University of Florida College of Dentistry, the three-day course focused on the use of lasers in the treatment of gum disease.

“We have a great staff,” said Dr. Alexander. “My dental assistant, April Adams, celebrated 30 years of practice in dentistry this year. Passion and education are what keep us on the leading edge of modern dentistry. I’m looking forward to 2015 and continuing to expand our portfolio of services.”

Dr. Alexander is welcoming new patients. He sees both children and adults, offering a complete range of dental services from preventive dentistry to advanced cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

Alexander Dentistry is located just outside Jacksonville, Florida in San Jose Forest, at the corner of St. Augustine Road and Caballero Drive. To schedule an appointment, new patients can call 904.372.8157 or visit

San Francisco Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Ben Amini, is Now Offering a Teeth Whitening Special Just in Time for Holiday Season

Sunday, November 16th, 2014

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 07, 2014

San Francisco cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ben Amini, is now offering a teeth whitening special just in time for patients who want to look their best this holiday season. The special gives patients $ 100 off the regular price of laser teeth whitening, a procedure that quickly reduces or eliminates stains from the surface of teeth without causing discomfort. Valid for November 2014, some restrictions do apply. A recent dental examination and cleaning must be completed. Teeth must have no cavities and the gums must be healthy prior to teeth whitening. Patients who want to receive this offer should visit and print the offer page to present at their appointment.

Laser teeth whitening uses EzLase technology, a diode laser made by Biolase, to turn teeth up to nine shades whiter at a single appointment. The advantages of laser teeth whitening include:

    Use of laser energy to accelerate whitening faster than conventional in-office whitening procedeures
    Results that are visible before leaving the office
    Less tendency to cause tooth sensitivity
    Completion in about half the time required for other whitening treatments

After whitening teeth using EzLase, the team RDA of Dr. Ben Amini, San Francisco smile makeover expert, and Associate dentists at CitiDent remove the whitening gel and wash the teeth thoroughly.

Teeth whitening with EzLase works well for several types of superficial stains, including those related to tobacco use and consumption of heavily pigmented foods and drinks. As a common focal point of social interaction, the smile is a powerful target for improvement of appearance and confidence. This is one fast way for patients to rejuvenate their looks in time for the holidays and the New Year. In some cases, patients may benefit from a smile makeover, which is a personalized selection of cosmetic treatments such as laser teeth whitening, veneers and Invisalign.

Kids With Two Rows of Teeth May Not Be Dressed Up as Sharks for Halloween, New Albany Dentist Says

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

NEW ALBANY, IN (PRWEB) October 30, 2014

Dr. Ronald Receveur, a noted New Albany aesthetic dentistry authority, has written a recent blog post alerting the public that 10 percent of children have what is called “pediatric shark teeth,” meaning that their adult teeth come through before their baby teeth fall out.

In the post, Dr. Receveur tells the story of an 8-year-old boy from England named Zac Brown, whose friends call him “Jaws” because of his double rows of teeth resembling those of sharks.

“It’s not uncommon to see children with one or two adult teeth behind their baby teeth,” Dr. Receveur said. “Removing those teeth and aligning the adult teeth is certainly something we can do at our New Albany cosmetic dental clinic.”

Dr. Receveur also talks about other common causes of youth and adult cosmetic dental procedures in the post.

Dr. Receveur, who practices in New Albany, Ind., across the Ohio River from Louisville, Ky., offers cosmetic dentistry services and general dentistry such as teeth cleanings, X-rays, fillings, extractions, root canals, crowns, teeth whitening and veneers.

Dr. Receveur also has vast experience with All on 4 dental implants, All on Six dental implants, mini dental implants, One Day Smile Solution, dental implants in one hour, bone grafting and sinus lifts, all with IV sedation dentistry. He has been restoring implants with prosthetics and complex dentistry for 25 years and surgically placing implants since 2008 at his dental implant clinic.

Dr. Receveur offers a five-year warranty on all cosmetic and prosthetic work.

Dr. Receveur, a New Albany native, has been the family dentist of choice for Southern Indiana and Louisville since 1981.

Dr. Receveur was born with a partial cleft palate that left him with a missing front tooth. As a child he “wore an awful removable partial.” As a teenager, Dr. Receveur received a permanent bridge, but his dentist destroyed one of his healthy, natural teeth in the process. These dental experiences helped drive him to find better dental solutions for his patients.

Dr. Receveur graduated from Indiana University Southeast with honors in chemistry, after which he earned his doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry.

Dr. Receveur has attended more than 5,000 hours of postgraduate training and even gone to Portugal to study with the best dentists in the world. He has been awarded numerous advanced certifications in Implant, Sedation, Comprehensive, Restorative and Aesthetic dentistry so he may provide the most current dental techniques to his Louisville and New Albany dental patients.

Dr. Receveur’s associate, Dr. Frederick, graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. He has received additional training in cosmetic dentistry, endodontics (root canals), orthodontics and dental implants at the Midwest Implant Institute, and has completed dental sedation training.

Dr. Frederick was a dental lab technician before receiving his DMD. That gives him unique knowledge in cosmetic dentistry elements like crowns, bridges, veneers and smile design.

Dr. Frederick is a graduate of the University of Kentucky, where he was a member of the men’s soccer team and received his Bachelor of Science in Biology. He graduated high school from St. Xavier in Louisville.

Essex, UK Dentist, Dr. Sanjit Sihra Now Offers Botox and Restylane Injections for Anti-Wrinkle Treatment, Migraine and TMJ Pain

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Essex, UK (PRWEB) October 07, 2014

Patients can look to Dr. Sanjit Sihra for effective anti-wrinkle treatment in Essex, UK with the use of Botox and Restylane. Wrinkles are a natural part of aging, but thanks to modern innovation, there are treatments that can help decrease these signs of aging.

As time passes, muscles responsible for creating facial expressions cause the skin to develop creases and folds. In addition to this, collagen production decreases with age which makes the skin less elastic and prevents it from recovering from the creases. The typical places where aging is most visible are on the forehead, between the eyebrows, around the mouth and around the eyes. In some cases, excessive wrinkles and lines can make a face look older than it actually is or droop in a way that makes it look perpetually sad or angry.

Injectable treatment options like Botox and Restylane have been shown to be effective at smoothing wrinkles with the positive side-effect of reducing the pain and discomfort associated with TMJ and headache pain. Through the use of Botox and Restylane injections Dr. Sihra is able to paralyze the muscles responsible for the wrinkles so that they will not contract. These injections work by binding nerve endings which subsequently block the signals from the brain telling them to contract. Preventing muscle contraction results in dramatically softer lines making the face appear more attractive and relaxed.

Botox and Restylane injections can also be used to treat chronic pain that is associated with TMJ, migraines and bruxism. The injections used for these purposes work in the same way resulting in less frequent and less intense muscle contractions that can be the cause of discomfort in the head, jaw and teeth.

Patients looking for anti-wrinkle treatment in Essex, UK should schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Sihra as soon as possible so that they can start looking and feeling their best. For more information on anti-wrinkle treatments and the other services offered by Dr. Sihra, please call 020.3151.9574 or visit
