First visits are generally introductory icebreakers that introduce children to our practice. During the first visit, our dentist in Spring, TX will perform a thorough examination of your child’s teeth, gums, and mouth to look for any sign of dental diseases or problems. Next, we will perform a thorough cleaning, using special instruments that remove built-up plaque and tartar that can cause common dental diseases. Finally, we recommend the appropriate treatment options that can maintain your child’s good dental health.
First off, you should visit us first to determine whether you are, indeed, suffering from gum disease. Once our dentist in Spring, TX has determined that you have gum disease, we can then recommend a conservative treatment approach, called scaling and root planing. Scaling involves scraping the tartar from above and below your gum line. Root planing, on the other hand, involves getting rid of the rough spots on your tooth root where the germs generally gather.
Going to the dentist in Spring, TX for regular checkups can help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Your teeth are strong and can generally last for over fifty years. If decay or disease has started, however, it can rapidly cause greater problems. It’s important to “nip it in the bud”, which we can do if you visit us every six months.
There are two treatments Dr. Reagan, our dentist in Spring, TX can recommend to replace your missing teeth. You can choose to have dental implants, which are replacements for teeth, roots and all, that have been lost due to tooth decay or accidents. Made from lightweight, strong, and biocompatible materials, these dental implants serve as the base for dental crowns or caps. On the other hand, if you don’t want an implant or you are not a good candidate for the procedure, you can be fitted with a bridge, which is a sturdy structure, composed of two crowns and a prosthetic tooth. They can “bridge” gaps where teeth are missing, replacing them in the process. They function as teeth replacements by being attached to your adjacent teeth or to dental implants permanently.
Nightguards are bite pads you can wear to prevent you from grinding your teeth at night. They offer an instant solution to teeth clenching problems by keeping your upper teeth from grinding with your lower teeth. Nightguards can also lessen the stress on your jaw and allow your muscles to function properly. They can also reduce tension headaches, ringing in the ears and give you a better night’s sleep.
Dental sealants are a type of dental treatment that involves the application of a thin plastic coating material to one or more of your teeth. This procedure prevents cavities or other forms of tooth decay from affecting your teeth. The sealant acts as a barrier to protect your teeth from tooth decay. They do this by keeping germs and food particles from entering and lodging themselves in tooth grooves.
