* How to Choose the Best Naperville Dentist*

#NapervilleDentistLenz
The Naperville area is fortunate to have many qualified dentists to serve the city and it’s many neighborhoods, as well as the cities and towns in the suburbs. But, with so many dentists and options to choose from, how do you choose the best Naperville dentist that’s right for you?

Tips for Choosing the “Best Naperville Dentist” for You
There is no simple or magic solution to this question, but these tips can help you narrow the list and give you the tools to make an informed decision.

1. Set Priorities
Before seeking out a new dentist, think about what you want out of the experience and what matters most to you. What are your must-haves and what might you be willing to compromise on?

Things to consider include:

Proximity: How far do you want to travel to see your dentist? How convenient is the route to you? Will you need to sit in traffic to get to and from?

Office Size: Large and small practices each have their benefits and drawbacks. Sole providers or small offices mean that you are more likely to form a personal relationship with your dentist, but it could take longer to schedule an appointment. Larger offices can involve having to get to know more dentists and staff, but offer more services and have more flexible scheduling.

Dental History: If you have a specific dental issue or suspect that you might, look for a provider who specializes in that area. If you have a relatively clean dental history, your choices will be much more open.

Scheduling: Are you limited in the times that you can visit the dentist? If so, look for providers who can meet your schedule. Larger offices tend to be more flexible about offering evening and weekend appointments.

EASE UP ON YOUR GUMS — DON’T BRUSH YOUR TEETH TOO HARD!
What can brushing too hard cause?

1. Receding gums
2. Bone loss around teeth
3. Loss of teeth
4. Tooth sensitivity, especially to hot and cold
5. Worn down enamel
How to brush your teeth properly???

You know you're supposed to brush your teeth twice a day, so why not do it right? First and foremost, you should only ever brush with a soft bristled brush—not medium or hard—unless directed otherwise by Dr. Lenz. Unless you have braces or specific oral health issues, brushing twice a day for two minutes is usually plenty.

The main purpose of brushing is to remove plaque from your teeth and gums. Plaque is actually soft and is a buildup of bacteria, saliva, and food debris. You really don't need to brush hard to remove it, just make sure you aim your toothbrush at the gum line (where plaque grows) and brush in small circular motions, never a back-and-forth motion.

It's also wise to hold your toothbrush gently. People tend to brush harder the tighter they hold their toothbrush.

Still have questions about proper tooth brushing technique or gum health? Ask any staff member or Dr. Lenz during your next visit to our office; we'd be happy to help!

How Have Dental Veneers Changed Over Time?
Veneers have been around for almost a century, and in that time have changed drastically. From fake tooth caps that came off after a few hours to teeth that look natural, veneers have improved in manifold ways. If you’re worried about the longevity or appearance of veneers, read on to learn how impressive this cosmetic technology has truly become.
The History of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers have been around since the late 1920s, and it should be no surprise that they began in Hollywood. A California dentist came up with a way to enhance the smiles of his Hollywood star patients. His name was Dr. Charles Pincus, and he came up with an acrylic tooth cap that fit over the person’s existing teeth. The stars would wear the caps during movie scenes, then remove them. Though this is a long way from the porcelain permanent veneers we think of today, it’s the beginning of using veneers to perfect someone’s smile.

Between the 1920s and the 1950s, regular people began getting veneers to help shape their smiles, especially in the face of disease or tooth loss. By the 1950s, dentists were bonding veneers to the teeth but were having difficulty getting them to adhere properly. Veneers were now made of either porcelain or composite, and Dr. Michael Bunocore figured out a procedure for lightly etching the tooth’s surface with mild acid. That created a surface that a bonding agent could better stick to, making the veneers much more permanent and attractive.

The veneers we think of today really began in the early 80s. Veneers became more affordable and easier to place, which made them popular solutions for people with cosmetic issues.

What is an Orthodontist?

Many people use the terms dentist and orthodontist interchangeably. That’s not quite right. The two professions certainly have similarities, but orthodontia is a specific type of dental care. These specialists treat certain types of dental problems. You may never need to see an orthodontist. If you do, however, you need to understand exactly what’s in store for you. Here’s a guide on orthodontists.

What Does an Orthodontist Do?
An orthodontist receives special training to fix misaligned teeth. If a dentist refers you to an orthodontist, the inference is that your teeth aren’t quite right. It’s not a big deal at all. You’ll likely receive a recommendation for braces or some other method of straightening your teeth. The orthodontist is the person who does this job.

The most important job for an orthodontist is identifying issues with your teeth and mouth. A gap in your teeth, called a diastema, will grow larger over time. Your teeth will suffer, as the structure of the mouth and gums needs a tight alignment. The orthodontist will try to pull your teeth closer together to correct the issue. Conversely, having too many teeth is equally bad, especially for children. An orthodontist is likely to extract the excess teeth to create better spacing.
