Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Dr. Brownlee the best dentist in Dallas?
When you’re pursuing a healthier, happier smile, quality is key, and that’s just what you’ll find at Inwood Village Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry. Dr. Todd Brownlee is committed to exceeding expectations with the help of his advanced post-doctoral education and comprehensive menu of available services that benefits virtually any dental need. Alongside the rest of our team, he treats every patient with the respect and high-end, individualized customer service they deserve, and he won’t rest until you’re fully satisfied with the results.
Why are dental implants the superior tooth replacement option?
Unlike traditional reconstructive solutions, dental implants are designed to replicate the entire natural structure of the original tooth, including both the crown (the white, visible portion) and the root beneath the jawbone. Because the root is so vital in keeping this bone tissue full and healthy, patients with dental implants are able to enjoy rejuvenated oral health in addition to superior aesthetic and functional benefits that truly stand the test of time.
If I want dental implants, will I need to go to a separate specialist?
Not at all. Dr. Brownlee has specialty training in surgical dental implant placement and restoration, which means he can perform every step of this transformative process right here in-office for maximum patient convenience and comfort. He also offers alternative implant options like mini implants and All-on-4 treatment plans so that you and he can formulate the ideal plan of action that fits your personal needs and goals.
Dental care makes me nervous. Can you help me relax?
We certainly can. Sedation dentistry is available here in Inwood Village as a valuable aid that creates genuine feelings of relaxation and comfort for patients who struggle with excessive anxiety/fear. We want you to be fully satisfied with your treatment experience!
I’m feeling a lot of pain in my face and jaw. What’s the problem?
This kind of localized pain is a common symptom of TMJ disorder, a potentially debilitating condition that involves dysfunction of the temporomandibular joints. TMJ disorder has several possible causes behind it (the presence of bruxism (teeth grinding), an uneven or misaligned bite, etc) but our team’s primary focus will be on relieving your pain in a lasting fashion. Dr. Brownlee offers multiple therapy options to accomplish this goal, including occlusal (bite) adjustment and customized occlusal splints.
How can you help me improve the appearance of my smile?
With the help of a personalized smile makeover plan, even significant dental flaws like gaps between teeth and noticeable staining can give way to a beautifully stunning appearance. Dr. Brownlee offers several cosmetic services to choose from, including porcelain veneers, metal-free restorations, and teeth whitening. He can even show you a preview of your transformed teeth with virtual smile design technology!
Are there any other options besides traditional metal braces for straightening my smile?
Yes. Invisalign treatment does away with the noticeable wires and brackets, replacing them with clear, custom aligners that have a nicely subtle appearance. As a certified Invisalign provider, Dr. Brownlee is happy to help patients improve crooked/gapped teeth while still being able to smile confidently in their day-to-day life.
