Teeth Cleaning and Check-Up – It is important to have a good regiment of teeth cleaning to prevent larger problems from occurring. Cavities and other complications are often avoided by good oral hygiene and regular checkups and cleanings. Routine check-ups are important to make sure you don’t have any unseen oral health issues. Our Houston dental office has panoramic (360 degree) X-ray capability. To maintain the health of your teeth over time, regular checkups are important.
Regular teeth cleaning helps prevent buildup and gives our doctors the opportunity to inspect your teeth on a regular basis. Our methods are less-invasive and focus on the thorough removal of plaque and tartar, and finish with tooth polishing. For those with greater tartar and plaque buildup, our Houston dental office offer deep cleaning. Our doctors offer advice on techniques that can be used at home to keep your teeth clean and healthy. Taking good care of your teeth, along with regular cleanings and checkups, will help prevent gum disease. Our Houston dental practice is equipped to handle adults, seniors and children.
Toothache – Tooth pain can be difficult to withstand. We understand it may prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep or performing at work or school. We take toothaches seriously and try to get you an appointment at our Galleria area dental office as soon as possible. Proper diagnosis of the cause of the tooth pain is important to determine the best method of treatment. A thorough dental checkup will help discover the cause of your toothache and other potential problems. Proper treatment follows a thorough exam. Our office will tell you the cause of the tooth pain and offer you the treatment plan required to eliminate the pain.
Root Canals – When the nerve of the tooth is injured or diseased, the pulp tissue (tooth’s soft core or dental pulp) dies. As a result, the tooth can become infected. If left untreated this can result in loss of that tooth, pain and swelling, infection that can injure bones and can even become life threatening. Our Houston dental office can save the tooth by using root canal therapy which removes the diseased pulp and cleans and seals the canal. The treated tooth should then be capped with a crown. We offer porcelain color matching crowns to match your smile. Our Houston dentists regularly perform the root canal procedure with little or no discomfort.
Dental Crowns – Your teeth may become misshapen or cracked because of age, injury or previous dental work. To preserve a tooth or improve it’s appearance we can provide a crown. Dental crowns slide over teeth and are cemented in place to make the tooth look whole, clean and attractive. Another term commonly used is for this device is “caps.” Our Houston dental practice offers porcelain crowns that have the look of natural teeth. We take the time to match the color of the porcelain to your other teeth so that your smile will look natural.
Bridges – A bridge becomes necessary when you have a missing tooth. The gap created by a missing tooth can cause the teeth next to the gap to move. Teeth can move naturally and create other issues when there is an open space in the mouth. Our Houston dentists can create a filler tooth that is then connected to the adjacent teeth to overcome the problem of space from lost teeth. Our Bridges are designed to look as natural as possible much a like a crown and can improve your smile and your oral health. Our Houston dental practice is equipped to handle adults, seniors and children. Whether you need replacement for one or more abraded crowns, our crowns and bridges can handle it.
Periodontal – Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the tissues supporting the teeth. It is one of the most common causes of tooth loss in adults. Periodontal (gum) disease is usually painless, so you may not know you have it. In the early stage of periodontal (gum) disease, called gingivitis, the gums can become red, swollen and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is still reversible and can usually be eliminated by daily brushing and flossing and regular office visits featuring cleanings and checkups. In the more advanced stages of periodontal (gum) disease, called periodontitis, the gums and bone that support the teeth can become seriously damaged. The teeth can become loose, fall out or have to be removed. Common warning signs of periodontal (gum) disease are gums bleed when you brush your teeth, swollen or tender gums, bad breath that doesn’t go away, and loose teeth. Our Galleria area dental office can help prevent worsening and can often stop the periodontal (gum) disease’s progression with techniques such as root planing and scaling (deep cleaning). Our Galleria area dentists regularly perform this procedure with little or no discomfort to the patient.
