Free Dental Care – Annual Dentistry From The Heart

Dr VanderMolen stopped by the Newschannel 20 studios the other day to talk about some of the specifics regarding our upcoming Dentistry From The Heart. It will be held on June 2nd and this will be our 8th year hosting this event. We’re extremely excited and honored to be able to provide this service to the Springfield community.

While the doors will open at 8am, the line will most likely start to form the night before as we can only guarantee service for the first 100 patients. We will see as many patients as possible until 4pm and it is first-come-first-serve so you cannot call to schedule an appointment this day.

The only requirements to receive service are that you must be over 18 years of age and you cannot be pregnant at the time of service.

The three types of services we’ll be offering include:

  • A teeth cleaning
  • A filling, or
  • A tooth extraction

Again, we’re very excited and honored to provide this type of event for the Springfield community and we look forward to helping as many people as possible.

Springfield, IL Cosmetic Dentist Can Give You Good Reasons to Smile

Improving your well-being doesn’t have to involve going to expensive spas or resorts. In many cases, simply smiling can turn a gloomy day into a brighter one. Psychologists have been talking about the positive and long-ranging effects of an ordinary smile, some of which are discussed by behavioral change expert Mark Stibich, PhD, in an article for About Health.

Dental Implants Give Reasons To Smile in Springfield, IL

The Positive Effects of Smiling
Smiling can do wonders in improving a person’s appearance by lifting years off the face. Likewise, the act of smiling at someone is often enough to make one attractive to others, as it projects happiness and even success. Smiling is also known to be highly contagious.

Psychologically, studies have shown that smiling can actually change a person’s mood, as it stimulates the brain to release neuropeptides that help relieve stress, as well neurotransmitters like endorphin and serotonin which promote good mood.

Smile Restoration
Unfortunately, there are many people who are hesitant to smile because they are embarrassed about the condition of their teeth. A less than perfect smile can come from discolored or misaligned teeth, tooth gaps, or even from having prominent gums. Some of these may be caused by genetic factors, while others may be the result of improper hygiene and/or eating the wrong foods.

Springfield, IL residents who are holding back their smiles for these reasons will do well to consult a Springfield, IL cosmetic dentist like Dr. Matt VanderMolen of Advanced Dental Care of Springfield. Cosmetic dentists offer a wide array of services to restore a smile that may be suffering the effects of neglect; or improve a genetically-imposed less-than-perfect smile. Solutions, such as dental veneers, teeth whitening, and Invisalign clear braces, can correct teeth imperfections, and in the process, improve one’s appearance.

The loss of a tooth or several teeth can also be a cause of embarrassment for many. Cosmetic dentists can provide solutions for this as well, through teeth replacements like dentures and bridges. The most commonly recommended solution, however, is a dental implant.

As dental implants are firmly planted into a person’s jawbone, they are more secure and unlikely to fall off or loosen, as is the case with dentures and bridges. Also, because of the way they are attached to the mouth, dental implants look very much like real teeth, making them great smile restoration devices. Springfield, IL locals who are missing some teeth can learn more about the benefits of a dental implant from Springfield, IL dental professionals.
