Our Preventive Services Include Support For Your Gum Health

You receive more than just protection for your teeth when you stay consistent with preventive dental exams. At our Bellaire, TX dental office, we recognize the importance of keeping your periodontal tissues healthy. Without proper care, gum disease can become a big problem, and difficult to treat if an infection progresses to a more advanced stage. The routine services we provide can help you keep your gum line free of harmful plaque and tartar, which will reduce your risk for developing gingivitis. If you already show signs of periodontal trouble, we can perform a scaling and root planing to direct attention to the area below your gum line, where bacteria can create issues for you. (more…)

Addressing All Of Your Needs When You Have A Cavity

Having access to restorative dental care you can count on will be important if you have an issue with tooth decay.

At our Bellaire, TX dental practice, we can make sure that the restorative dental treatment you receive completely addresses your needs. That means making sure the threat of decay is neutralized, and damaged material is removed from your tooth. It also means making sure your smile is taken care of with the right restoration. We provide lifelike dental fillings and dental crowns for our patients during treatment. With our in-house technology, we can even provide a dental crown in as little as one appointment. (more…)

At our Bellaire, TX dental practice, we can help you make sure this matter is properly addressed. During pediatric dental exams, we examine a young patient’s developing oral structures, and we can alert you if there are signs that they might require treatment. In some cases, we can even recommend early orthodontics, which can limit the problems with their dental alignment over time. (more…)
