Welcome to Smile Dental Center, Your General Dentist in Shreveport
If you're looking for a family dentist in Shreveport, LA, then you found the right place. Dr. Mario Pary, a general dentist in Shreveport, is committed to providing some of the best dentistry in Shreveport. Why? The health of your mouth can provide significant clues to your overall health. It is important for you to understand possible health risks to your teeth and what you need to do to avoid them. When the body's natural defenses are good, you are able to maintain the healthy balance of bacteria with brushing and flossing. However, without that basic dental care, bacteria multiply, calcify, and damage the teeth inside and out. Another factor affecting your dental health is saliva. Having healthy saliva flow neutralizes acids produced by bacteria and helps protect your mouth from being vulnerable to diseases. However, some medications like antihistamines and painkillers can reduce saliva flow and lead to the spread of gum disease. Unchecked gum disease can lead tooth decay, bone loss, cardiovascular disease, and more serious health issues, according to the National Institute of Health. Despite the fact that you may floss and brush every day, the fact is that a professional set of eyes can see things that your toothbrush and floss will miss. Pockets of proliferating bacteria, softness in your enamel, and small cracks may be the source of that acute tickling pain when you drink something cold: all of those can be seen, assessed, and addressed by a dental health professional. Unfortunately, there is a lot of anxiety associated with sitting in the dentist's chair. According to 1800dentist.com, between 10 and 20 percent of Americans suffer from dental phobia or dental anxiety. Some even have a paralyzing fear of dentists and exhibit symptoms like sweaty palms at the mention of the dentist. Some of these fears stem from previous negative experiences involving pain and that dreaded drill. Others don't like feeling helpless or out of control, while others are embarrassed about the long time between visits and fear being ridiculed and judged. Whatever the reasons, the question you need to answer is whether your fear is worth your health. Advancements in dental care and technology have led to creating more customized patient-centric solutions. At one point, getting dental implants meant not only dealing with the pain of healing from the implant, but also the fear that somehow particles could get stuck in the implant, leading to unimaginable pain. Those with missing teeth may opt not to replace them, and that move can lead to other dental problems. The truth is that today dental implants are customized using a 3-D image of your mouth. This reduces the need to cut through the gum to find the bone. Healing time and pain are reduced, and, in some cases, dental implants can be done in a single office visit. Smile Dental Center employs the most modern techniques and technology to help put customers at ease. We use lasers to precisely deal with a variety of procedures, including root canals and fillings, with minimal pain. We create customized cosmetic, general, and family treatment plans through individual diagnosis and design because we believe that your smile should be unique to you. Dr. Mario Pary and the team offer quality care for patients in Bossier City, Minden, and Haughton, Louisiana, as well as East Texas communities including Tyler and Longview. He's one of the best dentists in Shreveport. Call us at (318) 797-3505 to schedule your next consultation or checkup.Request an Appointment
- Dr. Pary is amazing! In one appointment, he figured out exactly what I needed and completed 3 fillings. I'm very satisfied with the quality of work Dr. Pary did. Not to mention he's just a cool guy in general.
- Dr. Mario Pary is definitely the best dentist I've ever been to. I needed a pretty hard root canal, and he did an excellent job and explained everything to me well. I've very thankful for Dr. Pary, and I will be referring my friends to him whenever I can.
- I never cared much for going to the dentist until Dr. Pary became my dentist. The staff was super friendly, and Dr. Pary is a great dentist. I've very satisfied with the work he did, and he's officially my dentist for as long as I live in Shreveport.
- I couldn't have asked for better orthodontist than Dr. Pary. I heard about him from a friend who got a crown done a few weeks ago, and he mentioned that Dr. Pary does braces. I went in for a consultation, and got all my needs met right away. Now my teeth are becoming more straight every month!
