Worried About Your Periodontal Health?

If you keep up with a good oral hygiene routine, you can have fewer concerns about your teeth and gums. With that said, you should look to our dentist for help in managing your dental health even if you brush and floss regularly, as problems may form and escape your notice until there are complications that you have to manage. One of those potential complications has to do with your periodontal health. Gingivitis is the first stage of an infection that affects your gums. It can be identified and addressed through a deep cleaning, which removes bacteria from your roots. If the problem worsens, you can experience a more severe form of gum disease that requires further support. Our Bellaire, TX dentist’s office has an on-site periodontal specialist who can help you manage a serious problem with your periodontal health. We can also provide support through regular preventive care, which can stop gingivitis. (more…)

How Implant Dentistry Improves Daily Life

A person with their full smile can take their dental function and appearance for granted, but someone who loses just one tooth can lose their comfort with both. Unfortunately, tooth loss is a problem for many, one that can lead to worsening trouble over time.

You can also have problems as neighboring teeth become loose due to a lack of support, and the loss of jawbone density. Our Bellaire, TX dentist’s office is prepared to help you deal with this problem and stop it from worsening. Patients at our practice can meet with an on-site prosthodontist prepared to help them make plans to restore their full smile through implant dentistry! (more…)

A CEREC Crown Can Be Ready In One Visit

When you regularly see your dentist for preventive care and maintain a good oral hygiene routine, you are less likely to need restorative dental work. Unfortunately, oral health problems still affect people who feel they are doing enough to protect themselves. Cavities are a series concern, but there are other threats to your smile. For example, you could wind up needing service from your dentist because of a physical injury. In this situation, or in a situation where you have a larger cavity, it can take a dental crown to fully protect you. While other practices ask that patients arrange two separate appointments to deal with this kind of problem, our Bellaire, TX dental office can provide lasting support for a vulnerable tooth with a same-day crown!
