What Was Dentistry Like in the Wild West?

» 25 April 2013 » In Dallas Texas Dentist, Dentistry and Health » Comments Off on What Was Dentistry Like in the Wild West?

Arlington TX Dentist | Dentist Office in Arlington Texas | Arlington Dentist William MillerWe’ve found ourselves wondering lately: Before our modern Dallas, TX dentist offices, what was dentistry in Texas like during the days of the Wild West?

Dentistry in the Wild West was much less the exact science it is today and more about creative solutions and educated guessing. It’s not only that people did not know as much about teeth as they do today, there were also many difficult challenges that came with dental work on the frontier, due to poor dental hygiene, lack of tools and facilities, and a scarcity of properly educated dentists.

Arlington, TX Dentist | Use Mouthguard for Healthy TeethMouthguards Aren’t Just For Rocky Anymore!

Dental Cleaning in Dallas Texas

» 18 April 2012 » In Dental Teeth Cleaning, Dentistry and Health » Comments Off on Dental Cleaning in Dallas Texas

A dental cleaning is a very important part of a healthy mouth and great smile.  Clean teeth are healthier teeth.  A person’s teeth and smile are very important for chewing and appearance.  Usually, an examination including x-rays may be completed at the same appointment.  It is important to have a complete dental examination by a dentist to check for any problems along with a dental cleaning.  X-rays may also be taken so that the dentist may be able to check-out and diagnose any underlying problems accurately.

A smile is one of a person’s greatest asset.  Tooth enamel is one of nature’s most beautiful substances.  Plaque, stain and calculus can form on the surface of the teeth within a very short amount of time. Although, regular brushing and flossing are both important on a daily basis, that is not a substitute for a professional dental cleaning / teeth cleaning by a dental office.  Cleaning frequency recommendations will vary from patient to patient.  In general, the range could be from one time annually to every three months. Many different factors come in to consideration when selecting the correct frequency of cleaning for a person.

Tooth Extractions

» 17 April 2012 » In Dentistry and Health, Tooth Extraction » Comments Off on Tooth Extractions


Tooth extractions are a
dental service widely used in dentistry.  A tooth extraction is a definitive solution for a problem related to a broken or infected tooth.  When a tooth is extracted and removed from the mouth, typically the tooth related problem has been solved.  Extractions many times can be avoided all together.  A dental exam by a dentist must be completed first to establish a diagnosis.  There may be other options available such as a root canal, crown or filling. After a dental extraction, a dental implant may be placed or possibly a bridge or a denture.

Extractions can be performed by a general dentist or by an oral surgeon.  Local anesthetic can be used or at times a patient may sedated for an extraction.  Cost can vary and will depend on the type of an extraction category a tooth may be in. Front teeth are usually less complicated than back molars due to the fact that molars have more root structure.  Molars as well as premolars or bicuspid teeth typically have at least two roots.  Some molars may have three or even four or more roots.

Reasons for a tooth extraction are many and varied.  Many times an extraction is the only treatment choice due to the fact that the tooth is too badly infected or of limited remaining tooth structure.  After an extraction, the healing period is usually uneventful and within several weeks the area is healed. At that time the patient may want to discuss replacement of the missing teeth.  Several options are available to replace missing teeth. Implants, bridges, partial dentures are several options.

The dental office of William H. Miller, D.M.D. is more than happy to help with your tooth problem.

Dental Implants as an Option for Tooth Replacement

» 11 April 2012 » In Dental Implants, Dentistry and Health » Comments Off on Dental Implants as an Option for Tooth Replacement

“Dental Implant” and “Implant” are terms in dentistry but what do they mean?  Dentists use these words daily in their offices, but what is a dental implant?  Cosmetic Dentist Arlington Tx

Basically, in layman’s terms, the typical dental implant is a  piece of titanium that is placed in the jawbone to serve as a “root” or foundation for a tooth or multiple teeth.  Therefore, when we hear the word implant, one can think of that of a “root” for a tooth replacement.  Implants may be placed in the upper or lower jawbone.  Implants may be used to replace a single tooth or several implants may be used to replace multiple missing teeth.

The process of placing an implant is precise.  Measurements are made and instruments / tools are used to prepare the socket for the implant placement.   Implants can be placed by general dentists but most often are placed by specialists.  The specialists may include oral surgeons and periodontists.  Local anesthetic may be used or patients can be sedated for implant placement.  Typically, there is little pain or discomfort following the surgery.  An implant must stay immobile within the bone for a period of time.  Usually, three months is an acceptable time although some implants may need to stay a few weeks longer to integrate or “fuse” with the boneShown above is the implant, abutment and crown.

After the implant has integrated with the bone, it is now ready for placement of the abutment and crown.  The abutment is also an attachment made of titanium that is attached to the implant and serves as the “tooth”.  After the abutment is placed, a crown can be fabricated to be placed on top of the abutment.  Therefore, an “implant tooth” is actually three parts:  implant (root), abutment (tooth) and crown.  Please click on this link for more information.

Flossing and Heart Disease

» 02 April 2012 » In Dental News, Dentistry and Health » Comments Off on Flossing and Heart Disease

This must be a mistake ?  How can flossing and heart disease be related?  One has to do with teeth and the other with my life…  Well, it’s true and there is an association between flossing, or lack thereof, and heart disease.  Research can now support claims that bacteria within the oral cavity can be associated with heart disease, and flossing, or a professional teeth cleaning is the solution!

We have to remember that the “mouth and teeth” are connected to the rest of the body.  Blood flows throughout the body and bacteria in one area of the body can be transported to another area as well.  Research has shown that people with heart issues also may also have an unhealthy mouth, including teeth and gums.  By getting the teeth and gums in better shape the severity and extent of the heart disease can be reduced.

So just remember when you floss you are not only keeping those teeth and gums healthy but also reducing your chance of having bad bacteria near your heart.

Here are some other great resources on the topic:
