You may have read or heard about a recent report stating that there is insufficient evidence to support what dentists have been preaching for decades: floss your teeth. The report claims that the effectiveness of flossing has never been adequately researched and, therefore, the evidence is “weak and very unreliable.” At Painesville Dental Group, we beg to differ. As your dentist in Painesville, we have seen the consequences of not flossing and stand by our recommendation to continue with daily flossing despite reports to the contrary.

For some, smiling is a daily struggle. It can even be a cause of stress. But it doesn’t have to be. With a cosmetic dentistry service from Painesville Dental Group, you can experience a renewed sense of confidence.
You may experience other benefits as well. When you feel more confident about how you look, you may also find that you feel happier overall. That can help you lower your blood pressure and enjoy a less stressful life. What’s more, smiling releases endorphins—your body’s “feel good” chemical—and boosts your immune system.
Others may see you differently, too. If you were perceived as withdrawn, you may now be seen as more outgoing, friendly, successful, and kind. That can lead to changes in your romantic, social, and business spheres.
At Painesville Dental Group, you’ll find several popular cosmetic dentistry services to help you achieve the dazzling smile you want. Our cosmetic dentistry services include:
But which one of these is right for you? Call our Painesville, Jefferson, or Chardon dental office today to reserve your consultation appointment. During your consultation, we can assess your oral health and talk to you about your needs and your wants. Then we can create a personalized treatment plan that will help you.
Our Painesville, Jefferson, and Chardon offices are ready to help you smile!

What goals have you set for yourself this year? For many, New Year’s resolutions are limited to things like finances and dieting.
These are important things to consider, of course, but what about setting some goals for your smile? Your overall wellbeing and your smile are connected. When you take better care of your smile, you feel better overall.
The goals you set for your smile don’t have to be big, though. Maybe you just want to increase the number of times you brush each day. That’s an easy one. Try bringing a toothbrush with you to work so you can brush on your lunch hour.
If you have more ambitious goals for your smile, that’s where you may need help from Painesville Dental Group. Our Painesville, Jefferson, and Chardon offices have a skilled team of experienced dentists who can help you craft a truly personalized plan.

If you have a toothache, it’s important that you call us at Painesville Dental Group. Oftentimes it is a sign of an infection within the tooth and may require a root canal.
A root canal involves treatment of an infection inside your tooth. The term comes from the fact that the infection is inside the inner canal of the tooth.
For your root canal treatment, we will numb the tooth completely so we can clear out the infected nerve and pulp inside your tooth. Then, we’ll clean and file the tooth until it’s smooth, and fill it with
. gutta percha, a special dental material that will protect against further infection.
Often, we will recommend that a crown be placed on the tooth as well to cap it off and help strengthen the tooth. Our crowns are ceramic and will be matched to the color of your natural teeth so no one will be able to tell.
There is no need to be scared of getting a root canal! Our trained staff can use oral sedation techniques to help numb you and relax during the procedure. At the end of it, you’ll have a healthy, pain-free tooth.
Does your tooth hurt? Call us at Painesville Dental Group today to learn more about root canals and schedule your appointment! We have convenient locations in Painesville, Jefferson, and Chardon that are ready to help you with all your dental needs.

The end of the year is fast approaching. Right now, your attention is on holiday parties, decorating your house and buying all those perfect gifts, but there’s something else that should be on your mind: using your dental benefits from your health care plan.
The team at Painesville Dental Group wants to remind you to not let your dental health care benefits expire without using them. Dental insurance plans usually pay for a certain amount of treatment each year. If you haven’t yet reached this amount, you should consider coming in before January. This money doesn’t roll over, so if you don’t use it, you will lose it.
If you have money left in your plan and you’ve been putting off a filling, cleaning or any other procedure, now is the perfect time to come see us. We care about our patients and want to make sure they are aware of this way to save money and still get the quality dental work they need and deserve.
Interested in using your dental benefits to get that procedure you’ve been putting off? Call us at Painesville Dental Group today before the year runs out! We have convenient locations in Painesville, Jefferson, and Chardon that are ready to help you with all your dental needs.

In our last post, we talked about the different restorative dentistry services you’ll find at the offices of Painesville Dental Group. But one service that wasn’t included in that list is also one of the most common, and we’d like to spend some time talking about it today—dentures.
For patients who are missing multiple teeth, a partial or full denture can significantly improve oral health and wellbeing. That’s because dentures restore what you’ve lost, enhancing self-confidence and allowing you to enjoy foods that would be difficult to eat without teeth. What’s more, for patients with a few remaining teeth, a partial denture can help prevent those teeth from shifting, creating other oral health problems.
Have you considered getting dentures for a long time but have haven’t been sure how to start?
Right now, at our Painesville, Chardon, and Jefferson offices, we’re offering FREE denture consultations. During a consultation, you can talk to one of our doctors about your options and how you can get the important restorative care you need. We can even provide you with a coupon for $200 off coupon for your dentures, making it easier for you to restore your smile.
Call one of our offices today to reserve your FREE denture consultation. During your visit, we can also assess your oral health and discuss other ways you can improve your oral health.
