When should your child first visit a Houston Dentist

Your child’s first visit to a Houston dentist should be right after their first tooth comes in. Don’t wait longer than a year after birth to bring them in, even if a tooth hasn’t come in yet. A child’s first visit to the dentist should be a pleasant experience, as it will shape their feelings of return visits. If the first visit is negative, they will be much less likely to want to return, even as an adult. What To Do on a First Houston Dentist Visit When bringing your child in for their first visit, it’s best not to do any invasive procedures. Instead, introduce your child to the staff and familiarize them with the environment. Resort to nothing more than a cleaning for their first procedure. If your child is a little bit older and is just changing dentists, they can benefit from exploring the dental office with…

Pediatric dental sedation may be an option for your child

Is your child anxious about seeing a pediatric dentist Houston? Are they typically very fidgety or do they have trouble keeping still for a long period of time? Pediatric dental sedation may be the best option for your family. Pediatric Dentist Houston Sedation Dental sedation is a very safe, highly monitored and controlled activity at your pediatric dentist Houston office.  In order to even administer dental sedation, your Houston dentist or an anesthetist must be certified to use the sedation. This certification is even more strict when it comes to treating children. What this means for you and your kids is that it is very safe. When administering dental sedation via gas or IV, the dentist continually monitors the dosage throughout the procedure. Some dosages may be higher than others depending on the procedure. More involved or painful procedures require heavier sedation to keep the patient calm, relaxed, and free of…

Ancient Wisdom Protecting Modern Teeth

Did you know that dental crowns have been around for almost 2000 years? They have been a mainstay of dental restoration since the era of the Etruscans between AD 166-201. The Etruscans used gold to create the dental crowns, and the material is still in use today. Gold is easily malleable so it can be formed into a tooth shape, but it’s also durable enough to withstand years of use. Today, dental crowns use several different materials, and the practices for installing them have greatly advanced. Updating Dental Crowns with Sedation When receiving dental crowns in Houston, you first visit your Houston dentist so they can prepare the tooth receiving the crown. After applying a local anesthetic and other sedation as needed, the dentist will use a drill to file down the tooth. The tooth needs to be filed down so that the dental crown will fit over it like…

Building a Bridge to Better Teeth

Restorative dentistry covers a lot more than just whitening your teeth. Dentists replace a missing tooth with dental bridges as one of the primary methods of restoration. Dental bridges accomplish this goal by suspending a false tooth known as a pontic between two dental crowns. The dental crowns serve as an anchor point for the bridge and the false tooth restores the look and feel of the tooth that was missing. So how do bridges work? Preparing the Teeth The first step in receiving a dental bridge is to visit your Houston dentist. The dentist will examine your teeth and determine how best to proceed with installing a dental bridge. After the examination, the next step is to prepare the teeth adjacent to the gap. These teeth are very important as they will be hosting the dental crowns that will support the bridge. To prepare the teeth, your Houston dentist files…
