Shawnee Dentist Implements New At-Home Cleaning System for Patients

SHAWNEE, KS--(Marketwired - September 25, 2015) - Dr. Mark Manroe, a trusted Shawnee general dentist, is educating patients about new methods that can keep their teeth healthier in between dental examinations.

Dr. Manroe, who operates Dental Innovations, is encouraging patients to use an electric Sonicare toothbrush and the Waterpik, a water floss unit that can be used at home. Research has shown that electric toothbrushes like Sonicare are more effective at removing dental plaque and bacteria.

With a more aggressive at-home cleaning routine, Dr. Manroe said patients cut down their risk of cavities or other oral costly health problems.

"It helps patients keep their money in their own pocket where it belongs," Dr. Manroe said. "It also helps my patients avoid getting shots and losing valuable tooth structure."

During patients’ regular visits and cleanings, Dr. Manroe and his staff work to educate patients about their oral health and provide gentle preventive and restorative care.

Dr. Manroe said he has seen the Sonicare electric toothbrush and Waterpik greatly improve patients’ teeth. He added that Dental Innovations patients love using the new cleaning system and rarely return to using a manual toothbrush.

"It takes little or no more time than they are already spending, but it is far more effective for the same amount of work. It’s a mechanical advantage, like using a shovel to dig a hole versus your hands. Both will do the job, but one increases the efficiency while decreasing the effort," he said.

Dental Innovations, 11221 Shawnee Mission Parkway, is a 5,800-square-feet office with 10 operatories and several amenities for patients. The Johnson County dental office is a leading provider in general dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implant dentistry, sedation dentistry and gum disease treatment.

Dr. Manroe graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry in 1991 and is a member of the Great Plains Study Club. He worked as an associate dentist before buying his own practice. Dr. Manroe has completed countless hours in continuing education, focusing on areas of dentistry like teeth whitening, crowns and bridges, composite fillings, gum disease treatment, porcelain veneers, tooth extractions and even sleep apnea treatment.

Dr. Manroe and his associate Dr. Trevor Clemons provide mini dental implants to help patients with thin jawbones to stabilize dentures. Implants not only stabilize oral devices but also help preserve the patient’s jawbone and provide optimal chewing force. Dr. Manroe also offers Lumineers porcelain veneers to fix gaps, chips or heavily stained teeth.

Dr. Clemons earned his undergraduate and dental degree from the University of Missouri in Kansas City. Like Dr. Manroe, Dr. Clemons is trained in crafting dentures, root canals and full-mouth reconstructions.
