YOUR NORCROSS DENTIST
– Meet Dr. Shyn

My goal as a healthcare professional has been to provide exceptional care, while also delivering an experience that inspires continued dental health. We take great pride in being educators and have treated a wide array of patients, ranging from celebrities in need of a camera-ready smile to patients who have had their very first dental visit with us! You will experience the highest standards of professionalism, dental technology and techniques. We will also strive to offer care that’s conservative and accommodating to each and every patient. Whether it’s through modern dentistry or simply the way we interact with people, I hope you will gain the confidence to put your health in the hands of our well-qualified team.

WHAT WE OFFER

SERVICES

Our hygienists are experienced, compassionate, and knowledgeable. They are here to help you establish a healthy dental routine that can protect your smile for a lifetime. Healthy teeth and gums are important to your oral health and overall wellness.

We offer treatment methods that range from your routine dental cleaning to more sophisticated procedures such as scaling-and-root planing or crown-lengthening. Your gums are what help hold your teeth in the mouth, so it’s a good idea to take care of them!

Even with improvements in dental care, many Americans suffer tooth loss — mostly due to decay, periodontal disease, or injury. For many years, the primary options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But, today, dental implants are available!

Implants are an effective, long term solution to replace missing teeth. Designed to feel as strong as your natural teeth, implants are a small apparatus constructed primarily of titanium that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, and they serve as the sturdy base for replacement teeth.

Dental implants can be used to support single crowns, bridges, or even dentures!

Crowns and bridges are among the most common restorative procedures in the dental industry. We can help restore the look and function of your teeth that have been lost or damaged through custom restorations. Innovations in technology have allowed us to offer uncompromised aesthetics with all-ceramic restorations and near indestructibility with the implementation of zirconia.

Why Do I Need a Dental Crown?

Often problems like decay, cracks, and discoloration affect your health and smile. As we age, so do our smiles. Dental Crowns can not only help you regain a youthful smile, but can be an integral part of restoring your oral health. The condition of the tooth may dictate extra protection, because sometimes a filling or tooth bonding isn’t enough.
Crowns are created from a number of materials. They can be constructed of zirconia, porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or a full gold crown. We can design the crown to match the shade of your natural teeth – restoring your natural smile.

How is a Crown Applied to My Tooth?

Crowning a tooth takes 2-3 office visits.
Your health and comfort are our top priorities, you will be given a local anesthetic to eliminate discomfort.

  • Your tooth will be reshaped to insure the permanent crown will fit perfectly.
  • A mold of the tooth is taken and sent to our dental lab. Your custom, permanent crown will be created to our specifications.
  • Temporary crown is applied to your tooth.
  • Once we receive and quality check your permanent crown, you’ll be asked to return to the office and you will again have a local anesthetic applied to numb the area.
  • We will then place the tooth with cement.
  • Follow the aftercare instructions provided to you.
  • Enjoy your beautiful smile!

With proper care, your new, permanent Dental Crown can last 10-15 years.

What is a Dental Bridge

Dental bridge is a procedure to replace missing teeth. By using your existing teeth, a bridge is created to span area of the missing teeth.

 

How is a Dental Bridge applied to my teeth?

  • The base for the bridge is created by altering your existing teeth into abutments – like Dental Crowns to which the bridge will be attached.
  • A mold is taken of the area and sent to a dental lab. This mold is used to create an appliance that will not only fit properly but it will also and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible. A bridge normally consists of two crowns and the pontic, the replacements for the missing teeth.
  • We will fit you with a temporary bridge to protect the abutments and the gum area.
  • Once we receive and quality check your Dental Bridge, you’ll be asked to return to the office. The bridge will permanently placed with a bonding adhesive.
  • Follow the aftercare instructions provided to you.
  • Enjoy your beautiful smile!

Looking for an alternative to metal-braces?
ClearCorrect is the clear and simple choice. No wires. No brackets. Just clear, convenient comfort—every reason to smile. With ClearCorrect, we can straighten your teeth using a series of clear, custom, removable aligners. Each aligner moves your teeth just a little bit at a time until you eventually get straight teeth.

How it Works

After you and your dentist decide it is the right option to fit your goals and needs, you’ll send your records, X-rays, and impressions to ClearCorrect. Next, working with your doctor every step of the way, they map out a unique treatment plan of gradual adjustments that take your teeth from where they are presently to where you want them. You’ll wear each set of aligners for a specific amount of time as your teeth gently move and align to your ideal smile. You’ll visit your doctor occasionally for checkups to monitor your progress until you have the straight smile you’ve always wanted.

A root canal is a dental procedure in which the nerves of the tooth are removed primarily due to infection or tooth pain. A filling material called Gutta-percha is then used to fill the inside of the root. We implement rotary endodontics to perform these procedures. Rotary endodontics allows for faster and more accurate root canals, resulting in greater patient satisfaction

People often fear root canals because they assume they are painful. Most say that the procedure is no more painful than having a filling placed. Discomfort experienced in the period of time leading up to finding dental care is truly painful, not the procedure itself.

Many patients have experienced partial or complete tooth loss from gum disease, tooth decay, or injury. Having missing teeth restored can greatly improve your overall health and appearance. There are several types of dentures that are now metal-free, flexible and/or retained by implants. These innovations have allowed us to fabricate appliances that offer improved function, esthetics, and comfort. When you visit our office, we will walk you through the choices available to you.

Technology

Panoramic Imaging technology offers greater detail on issues and structures than a conventional x-ray. While the patient is stationed with the chin slightly extended, the machine takes a full 360-degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones. Allowing a full view of the head allows us to recognize potential problems, specific types of structural problems, infections, and asymmetry.

Another advanced technological tool is our state-of-the-art intraoral camera. Providing views from different angles in the mouth allows us to view the entire dentition on a monitor. Intraoral camera images are instrumental in demonstrating treatment plans and provide an excellent record for insurance company claims

Crowns and bridges are among the most common restorative procedures in the dental industry. We can help restore the look and function of your teeth that have been lost or damaged through custom restorations. Innovations in technology have allowed us to offer uncompromised aesthetics with all-ceramic restorations and near indestructibility with the implementation of zirconia.

Digital radiography is more commonplace in the standard dental office nowadays. It can result in up to 80% less radiation exposure than traditional X-rays and allows for more accurate evaluations.

Today’s Smile

Our patient presented with ill-fitting dentures, combined with a bite that clearly didn’t belong to her. After utilizing the proper “checkpoints” and due diligence throughout the rehabilitation process, the final result speaks for itself. This was definitely one of the more dramatic before and afters.

Amazing my teeth were a disaster. 3 visits start to finish and I can smile! thank you! Please attach my before and after pictures please

I had an unexpected dental issue this week and was able to get an appointment within a day which I appreciate. I had a very complete exam with high resolution digital picture of my tooth. Dr. Shyn gave me an excellent explanation of the situation with my tooth’s health. He honestly told me that I should not get any work done at this time and that we should watch it over time. I appreciate an honest and thorough evaluation. I think some less ethical dentists would have sold me on doing alot of unneeded dental work. This visit solidifies my decision to retain Dr. Shyn as my dentist for the long term.

I wouldn’t smile openly due to the embarrassment of my teeth. My crown was broken, dentures were old and not well-fitted, and my remaining teeth were otherwise oddly-shaped. I was a long overdue candidate for a smile makeover! I called my dentist office to find out he was no longer in practice and a new dentist had taken over the office, Dr. Aristo Shyn! I came in within days for a consultation. I found him extremely knowledgeable, most professional and sensitive to my concerns. I felt immediately at ease as Dr. Shyn discussed my treatment options at length and laid out a plan. Dr. Shyn’s warm personality and his skilled personnel helped add trust to the doctor-patient relationship. Words cannot describe how happy I am with the results of Dr. Shyn’s wonderful work. He meticulously prepared my teeth, advising me of each step and worked tirelessly for the best creative solution. The quality, naturalness and perfect fit, size and shape of the teeth are truly remarkable. I now have the gorgeous, radiant smile I always wanted. I look younger, more vibrant and I’m so self-assured. Dr. Shyn has given me much more than a beautiful smile. I feel like I am leading a new life. Having the dental makeover done was the best investment I ever made. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. I urge those people that are considering cosmetic dentistry to make an appointment with Dr. Shyn. He will always be the only dentist in the world for me. I recommend him highly.

I called Dr. Shyn’s office today as I was experiencing a lot of pain w/ one of my molars and also was having swelling on the roof of my mouth. I was impressed that I was able to get in to have Dr. Shyn evaluate my problem on the same morning as my call and he quickly diagnosed my problem……….a tooth which has absessed. As a result, my pain was quickly diminished as was my anxiety.

Dentistry in the news

 

 

A recent study performed in conjunction with the American Heart Association found that poor oral health can interfere with blood pressure control in people diagnosed with hypertension. Periodontal disease — a condition marked by gum infection, inflammation and tooth damage — appears to worsen blood pressure and interferes with prescribed treatments. This study reiterates the importance of good oral health in blood pressure control. A healthy mouth can help prevent the adverse effects known to occur from untreated high blood pressure.
