Congratulations!

You’ve found Groves Dental Care in Loxahatchee, the office of Dr. Anis Elkhechen. Our mission is to make it simple for members of our community to get outstanding, modern dental care from a compassionate, gentle, and friendly dentist and team.

We are proud to serve Loxahatchee Groves, Wellington, Loxahatchee, Royal Palm Beach, and the surrounding Palm Beach County area.

We’ll Start with Comprehensive Preventive Care

Preventive dentistry is the foundation of our practice – and your healthy smile!

Routine re-care appointments with our talented dental hygienist and thorough examinations by Dr. Elkhechen will help you stay healthy. We’ll help you avoid dental issues as much as possible and identify any concerns that do develop early so you can be treated with simple, conservative treatments.

Trusted Options to Restore Missing Teeth in Loxahatchee, FL

Despite our best efforts, it’s likely that you will need a restorative dental treatment at some point in your life. While improved knowledge and dental treatments have significantly reduced the number of cavities you are likely experience, most American adults will have at least one cavity at some point in their lives.

All of our restorative treatments are done with both aesthetics and function in mind. We exclusively provide tooth-colored fillings, and we craft crowns, bridges, and even dentures that look incredibly lifelike. We want people to admire your friendly smile – not your dental work!

Cosmetic Dental Services for the Finishing Touch

If your smile is healthy but it needs some extra help to look its best, you’ve come to the right place. Dr. Elkhechen can combine dental science with an artistic eye to create a smile that you’ll be thrilled to show off!

Teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are just two of the ways we can transform your smile, so don’t hesitate to call our Loxahatchee dental office to request a cosmetic dentistry consultation!

Simplifying Your Life and Your Dental Care

We know that life can get busy, and it’s easy to let details like cleanings and dental appointments slide. One of our goals is to not only make it easy for you to get the care you need but for it to be so comfortable you never have to worry about it or dread it!

We accept a long list of dental benefit (insurance) plans and discount plans, and we offer staggered hours so you can always find a time that works with your schedule. We’re even open one Saturday a month for your convenience!

Patient comfort is one of our top values, and you’ll be sure to appreciate the ways in which Dr. Elkhechen has incorporated state-of-the-art technology into his practice. From chairside digital x-rays that are faster, more comfortable, and safer than traditional x-rays to use of the DentalVibe, which allows for painless anesthetic injection, we’ve kept your needs in mind every step of the way.

Post Procedure Instructions

Gum Therapy

If you have some soreness following the procedure, you can take some Advil (ibuprofen). Tylenol (acetaminophen) is also an option. Please CLICK HERE for additional tips and instructions.

Please note: Do not take these medications if you are allergic to them or have been told by a medical professional not to take them. Take as recommended according to the medication package. 

Tooth Extractions

Root Canal

Following this procedure, you may experience several days of discomfort – similar to a bruise on your arm. Avoid putting pressure in the area for several days to allow for healing. Medication is only necessary if Dr. Elkhechen prescribes something for you. Otherwise, if you have any discomfort, you can take some Advil (ibuprofen). 

Please note: Do not take these medications if you are allergic to them or have been told by a medical professional not to take them. Take as recommended according to the medication package. 

If Dr. Elkhechen has placed a temporary restoration on your tooth, please be careful not to chew hard or very sticky foods as this may dislodge the restoration. If the temporary restoration gets loose or comes out, do not worry. Just give us a call and we will schedule you to come in so we can take care of that for you. Patient in dental chair for root canal treatment in Loxahatchee, FL

Dental Implant

Following the placement of an implant, you might experience mild discomfort from the gums healing, but not from the implant itself. If a tooth was removed at the same appointment when the implant was placed, then any discomfort felt will be due to the healing process that occurs at the site where the tooth was removed.

After placement of an implant, you will likely not see anything in that area. The only element that you may notice is a small titanium healing cover that sits at or just below the gumline. This piece protects the implant that is underneath, but you will not see anything else. This piece will not be visible in your smile especially in the back. If you have an implant placed in the front of your mouth, then you will likely have a temporary tooth placed in the area so you can smile without seeing any part of the implant.  If you feel something come loose, don't worry – it is just the small healing cover over the implant. If this occurs, call us immediately and we'll get you in to tighten the healing cover.

Bone Graft

Following the placement of bone grafting material, you may experience some discomfort because this procedure is usually done when a tooth is removed. Any discomfort experienced will likely be from the area healing following tooth removal. A small mesh or plug is used to protect the material. You will have several sutures at the site to cover and protect the grafting material. 

Try to avoid pressure in the area as much as possible for the first week. Avoid smoking or forceful swishing for 48 hours. Make sure to continue brushing your teeth in the rest of your mouth after two days of healing, but avoid brushing the teeth directly next to where the grafting material was placed in order to not disturb the sutures holding the grafting material in place.

If you notice the sutures coming loose, don't worry – this tends to happen over the next week following the procedure. If this occurs, just give us a call and we can schedule a time for you to come in so we can take a look at it. Also, don't be alarmed if you notice some little particles around the grafting site following the procedure. There will always be some residual grafting particles and food particles that can linger in the area after eating. But, of course, do not hesitate to call us if you are unsure about something and want us to take a look at it!

Temporary Crowns

Brush and floss like normal. You can also chew food normally; however, you should avoid very hard foods and sticky foods (like gummy bears) that can dislodge the temporary crown. If you notice your temporary crown has come loose, do not worry. Just give us a call and we will be more than happy to see you to temporarily cement the crown back on.
