    Have You Thanked Your Dental Assistant Lately?

    North Richland Hills Extreme Smile Makeover

    Your Hurst dental practice would be a very different place if it weren’t for the proficient dental assistants who work there.

    Today in our Hurst, Texas dental blog we would like to highlight the importance of these hard workers who are often taken for granted.

    Dental assistants make your dental appointment much more effective, efficient, and safe.

    You, the patient, are prepared for treatment by dental assistants and, during services (such as filling cavities, placing crowns, root canals, or teeth whitening) the assistants speed things along by passing instruments, holding devices, and recording critical information.

    Most North Richland Hills cosmetic dental patients would agree that anyone who helps to shorten their time in the dental chair is a person who deserves thanks!

    Keeping the dental office clean and sterilizing instruments are other vital responsibilities taken on by dental assistants. What would we do without them?

    My name is Clinton Hyatt. I have been serving the Hurst area since 2011. The skilled dental assistants at my practice, Hyatt Family Dental in Hurst, are world-class, along with the rest of our friendly staff.

    If you are looking for exceptional dental care in Hurst, East Euless, North Richland Hills, or Bedford, please give us a call at 817-500-4228 . We can explore your dental care needs as well as any cosmetic dentistry procedures you might be interested in, such as veneers, dental implants, gum contouring, or an extreme smile makeover.

    Beware Of An Acidic Diet

    Hurst tooth strengthening Most Hurst residents don’t often think of a tooth as a body part that fluctuates in strength. Our teeth seem to have a steady hardness and dependably grind food whenever we need them. However, teeth are dynamic organisms with chemical processes that occur continually.

    The protective enamel that covers the softer interior is made of minerals. Enamel demineralizes (loses some of its density) when coming in contact with acids. Saliva can dilute and neutralize acid so the tooth can remineralize (re-harden). This process isn’t instantaneous, however. While the enamel is soft, the tooth is vulnerable to losing a microscopic outer layer of enamel. If the erosion continues, the much softer dentin is exposed. Eventually, the tooth may need to be extracted.

    At Hyatt Family Dental, we are noticing an increase in cases of serious acid erosion. It is apparent that the typical Hurst diet is becoming more acidic.

    The list of acidic foods may surprise you. They include eggs, gravy, asparagus, chicken, cottage cheese, honey, fish, ham, butter, sour cream, aged cheese, and yogurt with active cultures. Generally, food with a high sugar or artificial sweetener content are highly acidic.

    Now let’s talk about drinks. You probably already know that soda pop and wine are not good for your teeth. Hurst teens that sip soda all day can have acid erosion while their young teeth should be at their strongest. In addition to soda, energy drinks are very popular in Texas and Hurst cosmetic dentists are noticing the effects on their dental patients’ tooth enamel.

    If you drink soda or energy drinks often, you may want to drink water or chew sugarless gum after downing a can. Stimulating saliva production can speed up the remineralization process.

    If your teeth have become more sensitive in general, or in response to hot or cold foods or beverages, you may have acid erosion. To schedule an examination with Clinton Hyatt at Hyatt Family Dental, call 817-500-4228 today.

    We are a full-service dental office with hundreds of satisfied patients in Hurst, Euless and North Richland Hills. We are located at 8711 Bedford Euless Rd in Hurst. We are working to raise awareness of the oral health dangers of acid erosion. We hope you have benefited from this Hyatt Family Dental blog article and look forward to your visit.

    If you are not happy with your smile, we invite you to consider a complete smile makeover.

    1. Look and feel younger.
    2. Improve your oral health.
    3. Increase your confidence.
    4. Smile all the time!

    Hello, I am Dr. Hyatt. Welcome to my dental blog. I serve my patients at Hyatt Family Dental which is located at 8711 Bedford Euless Rd in Hurst, Texas. I have been practicing general and cosmetic dentistry since 2011.

    There has never been a better time to practice dentistry because dental procedures unavailable just a few years ago are now commonplace. During my career, I have become proficient in a wide variety of advanced dental treatments aided by breakthroughs in techniques and tooth restoration materials. My passion is providing the highest standard of dental care for my Hurst area patients and creating the healthiest and most beautiful smiles possible.

    If you are not familiar with the latest unprecedented dental procedures, you might not realize what cosmetic and restorative dentistry can achieve. A total smile redesign involves a combination of cosmetic dental procedures which may include dental crowns, porcelain veneers, dental bonding, tooth implants, inlays and onlays, gum contouring, teeth whitening and, in some cases, orthodontia.

    If you have dental anxiety, we can help. Sleep dentistry, sometimes called conscious sedation, will calm your nerves and help you relax while you undergo your smile redesign.

    If you are in the Hurst East Euless, North Richland Hills, or Bedford area and have cosmetic dentistry questions, schedule a consultation by calling us at 817-500-4228 .

    3 Tips To Make Brushing In Hurst Count

    Bedford affordable family dentist

    Many of doctor Clinton Hyatt’s patients walk in for cosmetic dentistry, porcelain veneers, or orthodontics. Many for routine checkups and cleanings. Most really want to know if they are brushing properly. Having patients come for treatment and leave with questions answered – from which toothpaste to buy to proper tools and techniques – is our business. At Hyatt Family Dental we are all about educating our patients. Sometimes life is as easy as 1-2-3.

    1 Soft Bristle Toothbrush
    Gentle brushing will accomplish the same results as hard bristle brushing without the abrasive damage to gums and gum line. There is never a good reason to use hard or medium bristle toothbrushes. Better yet, wet the soft bristle toothbrush to be sure the bristles are pliable before brushing.

    2 Minutes of Brushing and Flossing
    Split the mouth into fourths and spend a good 30 seconds in each quarter. Hit the chewing surfaces, the inside surfaces, the outside surfaces and gently massage the gums. Be sure to address the far side of the back tooth that is never visible but can collect food and allow decay to begin. Take two minutes to floss after brushing in the evening to remove any remnants the toothbrush couldn’t coax out and to clean any beginning buildup. You have approximately 32 teeth and 32 gaps to floss clean. Two minutes should do the trick, but adding an extra minute for good measure can’t hurt.

    3 Times a Day
    Brushing after every meal should remain the goal. This is difficult for many who are not home for the midday meal. To achieve extraordinary dental hygiene, brushing is priority one. There are as many toothpaste choices out there as you have teeth; without consistent brushing and flossing, those teeth are facing sure destruction. Don’t misunderstand, toothpaste is critical. Toothpaste acts as the vehicle that collects the debris, keeps the bristles pliable, fluoridates the mouth, freshens the breath and a myriad of other side jobs. But after every meal, gently removing food debris prevents breakdown on precious tooth surfaces. Even if you don’t use toothpaste after lunch, a quick brush can keep your teeth free of buildup.

    Relieving Your Dental Anxiety At Hyatt Family Dental

    Relieving Your Dental Anxiety At Hyatt Family DentalHello Hurst dental blog visitors, welcome to the Hyatt Family Dental blog. I am doctor Clinton Hyatt of Hyatt Family Dental in Hurst.

    A close friend of mine recently expressed fears about her upcoming root canal. She was anxious about the pain she might experience and worried about getting work off for the multiple office visits to complete the procedure. I assured her that painful root canal procedures are a thing of the past with modern dentistry.

    With the latest technology and anesthetics, a root canal (endodontic treatment) is no more painful than receiving a filling. Most root canals can be completed in one or two office visits.

    If you have been neglecting your teeth because of fears or concerns about a particular procedure and have not been to your Hurst dentist recently, I encourage you to schedule an exam, cleaning, and consultation today.

    We are accepting new patients at Hyatt Family Dental and would love to serve you. At Hyatt Family Dental, we offer porcelain veneers, dental bridges, and teeth whitening.

    Should Hurst Teens Whiten Their Teeth?

    Hurst teeth bleaching

    Getting a smile just like their favorite singer or movie star might be high on your teen’s priority list. However, you may want to talk with your Euless, North Richland Hills, or Hurst dentist before buying an at-home tooth whitening product.

    As with any cosmetic dentistry procedure, teeth whitening should be overseen by a professional. There are a number of factors that can affect results such as an existing crown or teeth that have not yet erupted. Some medical conditions can cause teeth to darken. Your Hurst dentist can determine if a teen’s tooth stains are a symptom of an underlying condition.

    It’s always a good idea to stress prevention over treatments, especially with kids. Make sure your Hurst teen is practicing proper oral health habits and help them understand that coffee, tea, cola, and energy drinks can stain their teeth. And if they need another reason not to smoke, remind them that tobacco products will destroy their beautiful smile along with their lungs. Lastly, warn them of the dangers of oral piercings which include tooth damage and infection.

    If you or any member of your family decides to use an over-the-counter teeth whitener, be sure to follow the instructions exactly as the bleaching agents used can damage your mouth and gums.

    Bad Breath Is No Fun

    Bad Breath Is No Fun For Hurst Residents Imagine you are starting a new job in Hurst and are going to communicate with your new boss for the first time. Confidence is key to your success. As you reach out to shake the extended hand your broad confident smile exposes rows of pearly white teeth, yet when you open your mouth to exchange greetings you worry about bad breath.

    Perhaps your breath is not as a pleasant as you had hoped. Bad breath is a worry and possible embarrassment for many residents of Hurst, Texas. Regular dental checkups at Hyatt Family Dental can help alleviate your concern over bad breath. We have been addressing bad breath since 2011.

    The technical term for bad breath is halitosis. Many factors can cause or contribute to halitosis. One of these factors is the food you eat. Onions and garlic are both known for having a potent affect on your breath. Simply observing the foods you eat here in Hurst can result in a change in your breath.

    Bad breath frequently originates in your mouth. Transient bad breath can be resolved through eating or brushing, and is a temporary condition usually associated with a dry mouth. Persistent bad breath can be a serious problem affecting as much as 25 percent of our Hurst residents. Persistent bad breath can be caused by dry mouth, and is made worse when food is not cleared away properly.

    Brushing and flossing daily is a key step in curing bad breath. Food particles can build up in your mouth and foster bacteria which can cause bad breath. This not only includes the food particles that may get stuck between your teeth, but also the food that collects around your gums or on your tongue. Brushing and flossing daily can help reduce the amount of food particles that stay in your mouth and cause bad breath. Regular visits to Hyatt Family Dental in Hurst can also reduce or eliminate the progression of bad breath.

    Other factors to consider include dry mouth, tobacco use, and dangerous health concerns such as infections. Come visit Hyatt Family Dental located in Hurst, Texas; we’ll provide you with information about bad breath in a professional environment. Give us a call at 817-500-4228 to set up an appointment.

    Been A While Since You’ve Visited A Dentist?

    Hurst, Texas Residents Visit the Dentist Whether you have lived in Texas for a long time, or just moving in to the Hurst area; taking care of your teeth eventually involves a visit to the dentist. We are Hyatt Family Dental located at 8711 Bedford Euless Rd in Hurst, Texas. If you are looking for an experienced family dentist, we invite you to come in for a consultation  You can reach Hyatt Family Dental to schedule an exam by calling 817-500-4228 .

    The very idea of visiting a dentist holds a negative connotation for many people. If you are an adult with dental anxiety, or your child is preparing to visit the dentist for the first time, here are a few tips that may help ease you into regular dental checkups and put you on the path toward increased oral health and wellness.

    Choose a dentist in the Mid-Cities who is appropriate for your needs. When you meet your new Hurst dentist for the first time, make an effort to ask questions about the care you will receive. Be sure to communicate with your dentist about his/her experience, age range of patients, and recommended procedures for any issues you may have. Get to know your dentist so you feel comfortable and relaxed.

    Be prepared to provide your dentist with information. Whether you are experiencing specific pain at that moment, or anticipating a problem, be sure to discuss everything with your dentist. Many patients become intimidated in the office environment and avoid expressing pain or discussing issues. As your dentist, I need to know your history and everything you are experiencing. I will be better prepared to help if I have accurate and complete information.

    There is no need to feel self-conscious if it has been a long time since you have received dental treatment. I have treated many first-time patients in your situation and have developed a trusting relationship with them.

    The best way to have a good experience with a new dentist is to communicate. Let me know what you are experiencing so that I can make adjustments and help you feel more comfortable and secure. If we determine that you are going to need a key dental procedure more extensive than filling a cavity, let’s discuss sedation dentistry.

    At Hyatt Family Dental our friendly staff will work to make your dental experience a pleasant one. We know it can be uncomfortable to visit the dentist for the first time or after a long while. We’ll do what we can to make you feel relaxed, secure, and among caring friends.

    If you are in Hurst, Texas and are ready to visit the dentist again, give us a call at 817-500-4228 to schedule an appointment. We look forward to meeting you and your family.

    Transform your self-image with your best smile!
