D.E. Kelley, DDS | Is 2016 The Year You Quit Smoking?

shutterstock_967206671Did you or a loved one make a New Year’s Resolution to quit smoking in 2016? If so, that’s a great idea for many reasons.

Kicking the tobacco habit is not just good for your body, but good for your oral health as well. Smoking is responsible for bad breath and stains the enamel on your teeth. Besides the smell and less than pearly white smile, smoking can cause other serious health conditions as well. The carcinogens found in cigarettes are associated with an increased risk of oral cancer, which can be deadly. Smoking and tobacco products can also lead to gum disease by affecting the attachment of bone and soft tissue to your teeth.

As with any addiction, breaking a tobacco habit may take some time. If you are able to kick the habit, it will quickly lead to better overall oral health. Your teeth will become whiter and less likely to decay. Most everyone desires whiter teeth, fresher breath, a healthier mouth with firmer gums. With help from your dental office, you can achieve all of these. No matter how many times you’ve tried in the past, it’s never too late to quit using tobacco. Ask us how to help kick the habit and reasons why it needs to be done soon.

Dr. Kelley is proud to employ a talented, friendly staff to make your dental experience exceptional. Our front office staff will find the answers to all your questions and make you feel at home. Give us a call today at 317-897-3500.

Dental Phobia Keeping You From Dental Health?

blog-dental-fear21Are you afraid to see the dentist? Many people are afraid of the unknown. Dental phobia can be one of those unknowns and is incredibly common with estimates that it affects between 13% to 24% of people around the world. Fear of visiting the dentist means different things to different people. Maybe it’s the thought that the treatment will be painful. It might be simply that you haven’t seen a dentist in years and are embarrassed by your teeth. Whatever the reason, dental health is crucial to your overall health. Many Americans are at risk of gum disease and early tooth loss – conditions that can affect your physical, social, and mental health.

If it has been a while since you have seen a dentist, make it a point to schedule an appointment soon. Dr. Kelley understands your fears. On your first visit, the goal is to calm your fears, perform an exam, and make you feel as comfortable as possible. We will then discuss with you the results of the exam and the recommended dental services. When considering treatment, patients are clearly presented with pros, cons, and all available options.

Our staff at Dennis E. Kelley, DDS is happy to offer dental services to you and your entire family. Only necessary procedures are recommended. In other words, no one is pressured with “up selling” like many chain dental practices.

We are accepting new patients! Give us a call today at 317-897-3500.
