The team at Paradox Dental believes in the value and benefit of building relationships with patients, taking the time to get to know them and understand their unique risk factors for dental concerns and disease. Our goal is to help patients learn about their dental health and to educate them on how to care for their natural smile between routine visits in an effort to avoid common dental problems and the need for invasive treatments. A smile that looks good, is healthy and feels great will also support your overall health and well being in many ways.

Cavity Prevention: the key to a lasting smile

Tooth decay and associated effects on oral health can compromise the structure of your teeth and your smile. Avoiding tooth decay and treating any signs of decay as early as possible will minimize the impact on the integrity of your smile. Routine dental care and good daily oral hygiene are the building blocks of a lasting healthy smile. During routine visits, we screen for the signs of developing concerns, perform a thorough professional dental cleaning and work with you to address any concerns or goals you may have.

Our personalized approach to the care of your smile will help you to maintain your dental health and keep you informed about risk factors affecting your smile based on your lifestyle habits or overall health history. For younger patients, we provide age-appropriate patient education and take the time to teach them how to brush and floss effectively as they become more independent. Fluoride treatments as needed, dental sealants and clear braces are offered in our family-friendly office for the changing needs of a growing smile.

Why Visit the Dentist?

Routine dental visits play an important role in the maintenance of both oral and overall health. Poor oral health has been scientifically linked to an increased risk of health problems associated with increased internal inflammation including cardiovascular and systemic disease. For patients with existing health concerns, poor oral health can exacerbate symptoms. It is also important to note that certain medical conditions and medications can have side effects that may compromise your oral health.

Keeping your teeth and gums healthy with regular screenings and cleanings supports your overall health and well being. A comfortable and functional bite allows for a normal diet, a confident smile and stable gum health minimizes the risk of harmful bacteria impacting the body.

Dental sealants are placed on the permanent molars in patients of all ages to minimize the risk for decay. These larger teeth have more than one cusp, creating a varied surface where food particles can become lodged and lead to a cavity. We recommend the placement of dental sealants when a child develops their permanent molars and can also place them for adults who are prone to decay. The process for placing dental sealants is quick and painless. The liquid material is gently painted onto the surface of the tooth and then cured into place using a special handheld laser light. Sealants can last for a few years and can be replaced as needed.

A dental filling is placed to restore lost tooth structure after removal of decay. Paradox Dental is a mercury-free practice in Indianapolis and places white composite fillings for patients of all ages. Why Choose White Fillings? White fillings are metal-free and made from a composite resin material that when hardened, creates a strong bond with the natural tooth structure to prevent future infection. The unique material also contains fluoride to support healthy tooth enamel and reduce the risk of further decay. Custom color matched to your smile, a white filling will provide the most natural looking result. Drs. Carole and Robin Thoman can replace old, dark fillings with white fillings for an instant smile makeover.
