Exams & Cleanings
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), the average person needs to visit the same dental office twice a year to maintain optimal oral health and wellness. Consistent exams and cleanings are the best way you can care for your mouth in addition to brushing and flossing twice a day. During a cleaning, our dentist and hygienists use modern techniques and technology to remove the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth. These substances come from food and beverages and can eat away at the mouth, causing infections, gum disease, cavities, and even permanent tooth loss. Our team will then examine your smile for any warning signs of decay or other dental problems. If you are in need of a dental checkup in Spring, TX, call our team to schedule your visit today!
Total Health & Wellness
Our dental care team knows that the connection between a patient’s oral health can have a direct link to their physical well-being. Research has proven time and again that there is a direct correlation between dental decay and adverse health. That’s why our multi-specialty practice focuses on preventive dentistry as much as the other restorative and cosmetic procedures we offer.
Oral Cancer Screenings
We screen for oral cancer to detect cancer in its early stages. Early detection means a better prognosis. Some people are at a higher risk of getting oral cancer compared to others. These are people who use tobacco, heavily use alcohol, and have already had oral cancer. Screenings are completely painless, so there’s no reason to worry about discomfort.
Dental sealants can offer added protection against decay and can reduce risks of decay by up to 80 percent. Molars and premolars are especially prone to decay when particles of food get stuck between the nooks and crannies. The process involves placing a thin, plastic material (the dental sealant) on the chewing surfaces of your back teeth. We use the latest dental technologies, and our team is trained to use first-class equipment for a stress-free patient experience.
Our team specializes in making custom-made mouthguards for our patients. Mouthguards are used to protect a person’s teeth and tongue from injury or damage caused by repetitive motion, such as grinding. They can be beneficial to patients who may snore at night or suffer from sleep apnea.
The primary reason to maintain good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly is to prevent tooth decay from eating away at your teeth. When the bacteria get entrenched in a tooth, you don’t necessarily have symptoms until the problem is in the advanced stages. Then, you may need a root canal to clean out the infection so that the problem doesn’t continue to get worse. A root canal is a procedure to rid decay and restore a tooth. Root canals are sometimes necessary to improve the tooth and to keep from extracting it.
One of the most important elements of our practice is emergency dentistry. Through emergency dentistry, our skilled team can help patients recover from urgent oral situations that require immediate attention. Using the latest techniques and technology, we can restore lost teeth, correct jaw alignment, and treat the source of intense pain.
If this is a service that you require, don’t hesitate to come to see us as soon as possible. No appointment is necessary.
Who Needs Emergency Dentistry?
A common problem that our office encounters is that people don’t know when to come to see us. People tend to be afraid of wasting resources or money, even when they need assistance. If you or a loved one are experiencing any of the following scenarios, you should see us right away:
- A tooth has been physically knocked out
- A tooth breaks or fractures
- You bite your tongue and cannot stop the bleeding
- You damage or injure your jaw
- You have intense pain in a tooth or the gums
In these situations, immediate care is necessary to preserve overall oral health and wellness. We highly recommend having someone accompany you to our office as it is likely you will need an anesthetic during treatment and a ride home afterward.
In-office teeth whitening is relatively simple. We can perform it within an hour and a half. Sometimes, it takes as little as 30 minutes. Many patients only require one treatment. However, some patients may require multiple treatments to receive their desired results. Your results are immediate. As soon as you put the whitening agent on your teeth, it starts working. These effects will last for at least six months. However, many of our patients have results that last up to three years.
