Don’t Underestimate The Importance Of Preventative Care
Our goal is to provide you, our patient, with quality dental care so you can enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. We provide restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve the function and aesthetics of your smile. One of the most important aspects of dentistry that we provide is preventative dental care. We want to improve the basics of dental care and the way our patients view their dental visits. Read on to learn more about the importance of preventative dental care and how it can affect your oral health.
What is Preventative Dental Care?
While we are happy to provide our patients with restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, it is our ultimate goal for our patients to only visit our office for preventative care. Preventative dental care is the act of caring for your teeth properly to avoid dental issues and problems in the future. We want to help our patients create a solid foundation for their oral health. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to be sure that you and your family members visit our office for routine hygiene examinations every four to six months, depending on our recommendation. When patients visit us regularly, we are able to treat minor problems in a timely fashion before they become major ones.
Preventative Hardwear We Offer
Aside from routine oral hygiene examinations, we want to help prevent damage to your teeth and gums. From time to time, we see patients who experience a condition known as bruxism. This is when patients clench and grind their teeth. Many patients do this during their sleep, so they are unaware. The effects of bruxism can be lasting and cause serious complications with your oral health. It is not uncommon for patients to experience uneven wear of the teeth as well as cracked molars. One way we can help prevent this from occurring is with the use of a nightguard. We can provide patients with more than just a nightguard. We can also provide a sports guard for our young and adult athletes.
We want to help you and your family have excellent oral health for many years to come. If you or a loved one are in need of a routine hygiene examination, be sure to contact our office located in Houston, TX to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
