We are a general dentist office, and we do cosmetic and family dentistry. So we offer a variety of things from just basic screenings, and exam and cleaning, all the way through fillings and crowns, implants, the full gamut. We offer, in our practice, cosmetic solutions, but we use nice white fillings, porcelain crowns to make your teeth look like they were or in the original state or better.
Dental Cleanings And Exams
With regular dental cleanings and exams from Houston Uptown Dentists, we will not only keep your smile looking great, we’ll also catch problems while they’re still small and easily manageable.
Before we begin, our Houston, TX dentist will discuss your priorities to better guide your exam and our dental treatment recommendations.
Along with a thorough cleaning, we will provide a “camera tour” of the inside of your mouth so you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.
We will also thoroughly assess the health of your mouth using state-of-the-art dental technology, including:
- Digital X-rays displayed on a screen for a clear picture of your oral health and for patient education
- VELscope assessment tools for oral cancer screenings
- DIAGNOdent cavity detection system to catch signs of tooth decay that might otherwise be missed
To improve and protect your overall health, we will also perform a sleep apnea screening, evaluate your jaw joint to determine if you could benefit from a TMJ or teeth grinding solution, and check for any signs of gum disease.
Gum Disease Detection And Treatments
A beautiful smile is important, but to ensure your overall oral health, we will also thoroughly examine your gums to find out if you require a gum disease treatment.
If you show signs of gum disease, we will relieve your discomfort and clean away the problem using cutting-edge dental laser therapy. Depending on your situation, we can also use special processes called scaling and root planing to eradicate gum disease.
Once your gum disease has been addressed, we will also help you to prevent it from coming back with a take-home treatment system called Perio Protect®.
Preventive Dental Care And Other Treatments
To keep tooth decay at bay, we can provide several treatments to protect your teeth, including:
- BPA-free dental sealants
- Fluoride treatments
- Fluoride varnish
We’ll even help you improve your oral and overall health with nutritional counseling!
We can also help treat dry mouth, bad breath, and provide custom nightguards to relieve teeth grinding.
Custom Athletic Mouthguards
If you or your child like to stay active, we can also help prevent a potential dental emergency with a custom-made athletic mouthguard!
