Broken Tooth Magic

If you have a broken tooth, this can occur due to fracture from chewing ice, or almonds. You could break your tooth from playing impact sports, e.g. football, soccer, basketball, skateboarding, and many others. One of your teeth could fracture due to undermining caries that cause a large cavitated decay under the surface of the tooth. Before restoration with crown, fractured anterior tooth. After restoration with crown, tooth restored This patient had a history of a crown on the adjacent tooth. We were able to restore it and deliver the crown the same day. These 2 photos were taken 2 hours apart. The gums are slightly red in the second shot, but, that will resolve given 1 day. If you need to schedule an appointment, Book Today Online.

Covid-19 Update

last changed: 6/21/2020 Effective Monday, June 22, with the approval of Governor Abbott, many local governments in Texas have issued ordinances that require businesses to adopt Health and Safety plans that require customers to wear masks. McFarlane Dental will require the use of masks or facial coverings by all of our staff, patients, and vendors. The CDC, state of Texas, and local health officials strongly recommend the use of masks or facial coverings in all public spaces as a proven way to slow the spread of coronavirus. Many COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic, so, wearing masks, washing hands, sanitizing, and physical distancing can all help keep Texans healthy.

Deep Bite Correction

Before and After Invisalign Class II div 2

Here is a wonderful case that illustrates how effective Invisalign can be. One of the challenges we face when completing orthodontic treatment, (formerly braces,) is the resistant idea from some patients saying to themselves or out loud, 'A clear plastic tray couldn't move my case.' (or) 'My case is too tough for clear plastic trays.' So, here is a before and after that shows how significant changes to the bite, archform and tooth position can be completed with clear plastic trays, using a clear aligner strategy. AfterAfterAfterAfterAfterAfterAfterAfterBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBeforeBefore [instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BxymVmGFVfT/] I hope you enjoy this case. Thank you to the patient who graciously encouraged us to share her before and after photos so that other patients could be educated about what is possible. If you need to book an appointment, please call 512-454-2744 (or) Book Online… Read More »

What about small fractures? Or is there more to the story?

Enjoy the before and after! Patient could tell something didn't feel right, it hurt initially, and a small piece broke off, but, then, the pain temporarily subsided. There was meaningful decay into the dentin in the area where the chipping occured. We removed the old amalgam, the caries (decay), and restored with a composite. Recurrent decay with associated fracture: #19 - DOB He wore through the cusp tips from grinding. I did not extend the outline of the filling into the areas of erosion on those cusp tips, as the patient's grinding was largely historic from having very large tonsils in his youth. He did not have his tonsils out until 18 or 19-years-old. The airway disturbance, akin to Obstructive Sleep Apnea, caused associated bruxism. If we did extend the outline of the filling into those… Read More »

Payment Plans, Crowns, Invisalign, Fee For Service, Insurance

Background When I acquired the practice of Sir Hal Moore, the practice did not have a program in place for payment plans. There are myriad reasons why payment plans can become problems for dental offices, which I will detail below. But, technology has come a long way since the days of having to mail in a check for a monthly payment plan. "Finally a system that is secure and allows patients to say yes to the care they need." Payment plans When we recently changed our credit card processing company, the new company was able to introduce us to the most modern platform, which uses technically savvy methods of safely storing and accessing financial information. I thought to myself, "Finally a system that is secure and allows patients to say yes to the care they need."… Read More »
