At Dental Excellence of Blue Bell, we practice life-changing dentistry that puts you first. If you’ve spent a lifetime going to (or avoiding going to) dental practices that just go through the motions, you might not understand what that means. 

It means that Blue Bell dentist Dr. Ken Siegel invests enough time, effort, and expertise into dentistry that it can be a life-changing experience. Let us explain how Dr. Siegel can transform your life with dentistry.

Find New Confidence with Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, it can sap your confidence. It can make you reluctant to do so many things in public. Yes, you’ll cover your smile when you’re around others. You might also be reluctant to eat or even talk in public. Some people avoid dating and other situations where they feel people might evaluate their smile. 

However, when Blue Bell cosmetic dentist Dr. Siegel eliminates your concerns with cosmetic dentistry, you can feel happier showing your teeth. 

Multiple studies show that cosmetic dentistry can yield significant benefits in your personal and professional life, many of them traceable directly to the increased confidence you feel thanks to your improved smile. 

Improve Health and Beauty with Teeth Straightening (Orthodontics)

We want to take a moment to highlight one type of cosmetic dentistry: orthodontics. Crooked teeth are one of the most common concerns people have about their smile, and people often mistakenly think they can’t get their teeth straightened as adults. They think that it’s something you can only get as a child. 

Not only can you still get teeth straightening as an adult, Blue Bell cosmetic dentist Dr. Siegel offers multiple options for discreet, effective teeth straightening. You can choose clear braces, which straighten your teeth with clear plastic aligners, or use more traditional wires and brackets to get your teeth straightened quickly with Six Month Smiles

Get a Second Chance at a Smile with Dental Implants

We’re only allotted two sets of natural teeth. One we start losing by the time we’re eight, and the other one has to last us the rest of our lives, whether we live to be 80 or 108. 

Losing your teeth doesn’t just destroy your smile, it can make it so you don’t want to smile. As with any other loss, you might feel grief at losing a tooth. You must give up foods you love, dentures can be uncomfortable, and not having teeth can make it hard to remain active. 

Traditional dentures aren’t like natural teeth, but dental implants are. They look like natural teeth and let you bite and chew like natural teeth. With implants, Blue Bell implant dentist Dr. Siegel gives you the chance to have a whole smile again, which can go a long way toward eliminating the grief associated with tooth loss. 

Escape Dental Anxiety with Drug-Free Relaxation Dentistry

Almost everyone has some level of dental anxiety. However, some people have dental anxiety that is so serious that they skip going to the dentist. They only go to the dentist when they have an emergency that needs immediate, often drastic treatment. This creates an unpleasant experience that reinforces dental anxiety. Even solutions like traditional sedation dentistry might not help since side effects like amnesia can come with anxieties of their own. 

As a result, people with serious dental anxiety can get trapped in a destructive cycle that threatens not just their teeth, but their health as well (more on this in a minute). However, Dr. Siegel offers natural, drug-free relaxation dentistry with NuCalm. He can help you feel calm and relaxed using your brain’s natural sleep mechanisms. There are no drugs and no drug side effects, just a feeling of relaxation and calm that dissipates immediately when your appointment is over. 

Protect Your Health with Cleaning and Checkups

We know: cleaning and checkups seem like they’re the exact opposite of life-changing. First of all, you likely wouldn’t feel this way if you’d been seeing Blue Bell dentist Dr. Siegel. Second of all, let’s take a moment to appreciate the life-changing benefits of getting regular dental cleanings and checkups. 

Yes, dental checkups protect your smile. They help prevent cavities and gum disease. In addition, regular tooth polishing helps your teeth stay beautiful and healthy. However, there are other benefits of dental checkups you might not appreciate. First, there’s oral cancer screening. Oral cancer can be deadly, and early detection improves your likely outcomes. Next, there’s protecting you from the complications of oral health problems like cavities and gum disease. Depending on the study you look at, regular dental checkups can reduce your risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke by 14% to 24%

Eliminate Pain with TMJ Treatment

Chronic pain like jaw pain, headaches, and facial pain can make it hard to live your life, let alone enjoy it. People with chronic pain will likely experience depression, anxiety, and a lower quality of life. They’re more prone to substance abuse, and they may develop secondary chronic pain conditions. 

Temporomandibular joint disorders (often called TMJ or TMD) are a chronic pain condition that many doctors overlook. People with this condition might spend years looking for effective treatment, especially when their primary symptom is a headache. Blue Bell TMJ dentist Dr. Siegel can help you get relief from these and other symptoms related to your TMJ. Eliminating chronic pain is one of the things that our patients almost always cite as being life-changing. 

Get Healthy, Restorative Sleep with Oral Appliance Therapy

As with TMJ, many of the people with sleep apnea don’t know they have it. Current estimates say that perhaps 80% of sleep apnea cases are undiagnosed. People with the condition experience daytime sleepiness, depression, loss of interest in the things they used to enjoy, and numerous health problems. 

Once diagnosed, people realize the cause of their problems but face something that might seem just as bad or worse. The common treatment for sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). CPAP works by forcing air down your throat via a mask. Needless to say, this can be uncomfortable, and many people don’t adapt. 

However, Blue Bell sleep dentist Dr. Siegel offers an alternative: oral appliance therapy. This simple mouthpiece you wear like a teeth whitening tray or a sports mouthguard helps you get restorative sleep and feel better physically and emotionally.
