Is It Time To Schedule A Root Canal?

Is there something to worry about once you begin to feel tooth pain? There are times when dental discomfort can be attributed other issues, such as a sinus infection, but sustained or significant discomfort can point to an issue that will require in-office care. When your tooth faces the threat of severe decay, you can find yourself in need of root canal therapy. A root canal removes bacteria and infected tissues from within the tooth structure. Through this service, we can restore a tooth’s health after an infection has formed. Our Bellaire, TX dentist’s office can make sure the tooth remains healthy by capping it with a dental crown after this procedure. (more…)

What Happens If Gingivitis Goes Untreated?

It may seem obvious to recommend that you avoid problems with your health. Unfortunately, people sometimes let problems with their smile remain untreated because they overlook worrying symptoms, and because they are not consistent about dental exams.

The more you put off a trip to the dentist’s office, the more likely it is that your condition will become more serious, which means it becomes harder to manage and more likely to cause serious issues, including tooth loss! Our Bellaire, TX dental practice is prepared to help. In addition to helping with gingivitis, you can meet with a periodontal specialist on-site to discuss care for a more serious infection. (more…)
