The Difference between Dental Bonding and Fillings

Chipping a tooth can be a very unpleasant experience. It can be painful and leave the tooth misshapen or with a very sharp edge. Some people may feel self conscious about having a misshapen tooth and want to have it restored to its original shape. Dental bonding can help with this. What is Dental Bonding? Dental bonding is a process of restoring the natural shape of a tooth using a color matched composite resin that mimics the appearance of the tooth being fixed. Bonding is a very inexpensive way to restore the look of healthy teeth. This is especially true in cases of accidental damage and light decay. It is used to fix the appearance of chipped teeth as well as discolored teeth, but its benefits are not solely cosmetic. There are practical uses for dental bonding as well, including protecting the roots of teeth. Receding gums expose these roots, increasing their…

How Dentistry for Kids Protects Your Child

Protecting your child’s teeth means being vigilant for decay, making good choices for nutrition, and instilling a habit of good personal hygiene. Expert dentistry for kids detects problems early and treats them immediately. Early Introductions To get started on this quest, it’s best to introduce your child to a pediatric dentist early. As soon as their first tooth comes in, but no later than 12 months old, schedule the first visit. An early introduction and non invasive exams help prevent anxiety about visiting the dentist later in life. When you bring your child to a Memorial dentist, they are introduced to the staff. They get to know the environment for themselves. This is better than being whisked away to a back room and delving right into a procedure. This lets your child move at their own pace to understand what’s going on around them and eliminate fears of the unknown. Dentistry for…

How Dental Crown Treatments Work

Is one of your teeth looking like it could use some restoration? Are you feeling any pain in a tooth? It may be time to see your Houston dentist for a dental crown treatment. Dental crowns are restorative implants that preserve much of a core tooth while reshaping and revitalizing the outer layer of it, known as the crown. Dental crown treatments usually take two visits to complete; the first visit prepares your teeth and provides a guide for the custom designed crown, and the second visit is when it’s installed. Uses for Dental Crowns Dental crowns can serve several purposes, both cosmetic and practical. Some people want a dental crown because a tooth has become discolored or otherwise unsavory in its appearance. Others need a dental crown because a tooth hurts when pressure is applied to or released from it. Sometimes a dental crown is required because a tooth…

Custom Dental Bridges at your Tanglewood Dentist

Dental bridges can treat a person who has lost a tooth or teeth due to decay or an accident. They are a more permanent solution than dentures, and you can care for them like your regular teeth. What’s more is they can match your existing teeth. Dental bridges can mimic the shape and color of your original teeth to appear as if you never lost a tooth. Dental Bridges Designed Just for You There is a lot of thought and talent that goes into designing a dental bridge. They must fit perfectly and match the shape of your teeth to ensure comfort and functionality. To accomplish this, the dental lab at your Tanglewood dentist must have a cast of your mouth. The cast completely and accurately maps the inside of your mouth and matched the shape of the teeth and how they fit together. With this physical 3D model of your…

How Soon should I Start Periodontal Disease Treatment?

What does it mean if your gums start swelling and feeling tender? Do you notice any discoloration in them? You could be suffering from periodontal disease, and a professional treatment from your Houston dentist is the best way to cure it. Periodontal disease affects about half of all Americans, though most only ever experience mild symptoms of it. Because the early symptoms of the disease are mild, many people may not even notice them. When this happens, and the patient does not seek treatment at all, it can develop into full blown gum disease. Worse yet, it can eventually reach an advanced stage that can even affect your jawbone. Periodontal Disease Treatment in Houston There is hope for those who have periodontal disease. Houston dentists and periodontists are able to treat the disease by targeting the root cause of it: bacteria. Bacteria collects around and under the gum line and…

Removing Wisdom Teeth at your Tanglewood Dentist

Have you been noticing a pain in your back teeth? It may be time to visit your Tanglewood dentist and have your wisdom teeth removed. Wisdom teeth are a third set of molars that usually come in between the ages of 17 and 23. If you visit your Tanglewood dentist regularly, they will be checking your teeth and looking for signs that the wisdom teeth may be a problem. A preemptive wisdom teeth removal procedure is often better than a reactionary one. Why Are Wisdom Teeth a Problem? The tricky thing with wisdom teeth is that they aren’t always a problem. That’s why it’s important to see your Houston dentist regularly. They know what signs to look for, especially as it concerns the size of your mouth and the amount of space available for wisdom teeth to come in. If there isn’t enough room, they may come in at an…

A Parent’s Guide to Pediatric Dental Sedation

Is your child afraid of visiting the dentist? It’s common for children to be afraid of or worried about seeing a dentist. There is hope, though, for parents who want their child to feel at ease. With pediatric dental sedation in Houston, your child will feel relaxed and worry free during any procedure. Do All Procedures Need Sedation? Most of the time, pediatric dentists want to prevent cavities and diseases. For this reason, most pediatric visits are non invasive and only include a dental checkup, x-rays, cleaning, and dental sealants. Should a cavity, disease, or damage occur, a pediatric dentist can still take care of that. The latter category of visits tend to be more worrisome for the child, making pediatric dental sedation a viable option. The sedation helps calm their fears and also reduces the sensation of pain and discomfort. Many patients also report that sedation makes the visit seem to…
