What is a General Dentist, Featuring Dr. Ted Byers of Flagstaff Dental in Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona

A general dentist is where someone will go if they have a toothache or need to get their teeth cleaned.  Dr. Ted Byers of Flagstaff Dental in Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona says that a general dentist is like a "quarterback of all the seven specialties of dentistry and is the first point of contact."

Usually, a dentist will have a dental hygienist to clean a patient's teeth but will do fillings, oral surgery, root canals and crown and bridge work.  Dr. Byers says that general dentists typically like a variety of work and that is why he chose general dentistry.  He enjoys oral surgery and implants the most, being somewhat of a "computer geek," and gets to use the cad cam technology in his office when making implants for his patients.

To find a general dentist that's right for you, Dr. Byers says it is best to ask for a referral from someone else who has had positive experience, such as if the office was clean and if the staff was friendly.  As patients really don't have an idea of what good dentistry is, Dr. Byers says they judge dentistry not necessarily on things that are dental-related.

Maintaining a Healthy Smile, with Dr. Ted Byers, Dentist in Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona

To maintain your smile for a lifetime, Dr. Ted Byers, who sees patients in Flagstaff and Sedona, Arizona, says you need to visit your dentist on a regular basis.  In his own practice, at Flagstaff Dental, he often sees big time lapses in between visits for patients.  These patients can end up with a whole new series of problems that could have been prevented had they seen their dentist on a more regular basis.

Dr. Byers suggests asking your own dentist for their recommendation on frequency of visits.  He says that the best maintained smiles are the ones monitored by a dental team as well as the patient at home.  If something pops us at home, don't feel guilty or ashamed if you haven't been seen in a while.  "A good dentist will be happy to see you and get you back on track," he says.

Implant Treatments After Root Canal Featuring Dr. Glen Doyon, Endodontist in Scottsdale, Arizona

Root Canal/Implant Treatments Scottsdale Arizona Endodontist Dr. Glen Doyon from Sequence Media on Vimeo.

Dr. Glen Doyon, of the Center for Microsurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona talks about how far dentistry has come by the advent of teeth implants. When a patient undergoes root canal, sometimes saving a tooth is not an option, as either the tooth has been knocked out or is too badly damaged from trauma or decay. There is now a fallback position of a dental implant when a tooth needs to be removed. While each patient differs, a crown can be placed the same day and time of the root canal or because of the bone quality, time must be spent letting the bone heal and then a crown is placed some time thereafter. Dentistry has come a long way in that dental implants can restore a smile and replace a tooth, almost as good as new.

What is the Purpose of Root Canal Treatment - Featuring Dr. Glen Doyon, Endodontist in Scottsdale Arizona

Dr. Glen Doyon, of the Center for Microsurgical Endodontics in Scottsdale, Arizona describes the root canal procedure as the first treatment option for a damaged tooth. As blood vessels and nerves have no function after a tooth is made, there are times when this does cause a problem and when it does, the inside of the tooth needs to be cleaned out of damaged tissue. Root canal is the preferred treatment, as saving the tooth is always best. Sometimes, however, a tooth implant is a better option when the tooth cannot be saved. Dr. Doyon performs both procedures and in doing so, confidently makes the appropriate determination as to course of treatment for the patient.

Chandler, Arizona Orthodontist Dr. Paul Serrano on Pediatric Sleep Disorders

Sleep disturbances in youth represent highly common phenomena that, in severe forms, can interfere with daily patient and family functioning. Interest in pediatric sleep problems continues to increase, yet further investigation is needed to develop empirically based detection and treatment of pediatric sleep disorders.
Phoenix, Arizona orthodontist Dr. Paul Serrano says  "in children there is no normal snoring. If your child snores it's pathological."
