Can I Really Count On A Dental Bridge To Stay In Place?

It is important to feel confident that you can rely on a fixed dental prosthetic for biting and chewing tasks. After all, part of the value of prosthodontic work is in the way it allows you to once again practice a natural bite function. This can make it easier for you to enjoy a greater variety of foods, and also prevent you from overusing certain teeth. At our Allen, TX dental office, we can provide a lifelike and durable prosthetic for you. Many of our patients have had their smiles restored with custom dental bridges. A custom dental bridge is supported by a pair of dental crowns, which can keep the restoration in place over the years, even as you use it to bite and chew. (more…)

Why An Expert Teeth Cleaning Is Needed To Address Tartar

You can – and should – keep tartar from forming on your teeth with daily care. By brushing and flossing thoroughly, you can remove plaque buildup before tartar ever has an opportunity to form, and become stuck to your teeth. Unfortunately, when this substance does form, brushing and flossing will not help you remove it. At our Allen, TX dental office, we can remove any tartar deposits that have accumulated on your smile during your routine dental cleaning. This is part of care provided to people at every preventive dental exam. If tartar deposits are not removed, they can continue attacking your teeth and gums, and create problems that require restorative dental treatment. (more…)

Tooth Pain That Won’t Go Away? You May Need A Root Canal

If it seems like that aching tooth just will not improve, you should take the matter as a sign that your problem should be addressed by a professional.

Our Allen, TX dental practice can carefully evaluate the condition of your tooth and provide you with the appropriate restorative dental care. A root canal procedure can remove infected and damaged tissues, stopping your discomfort, and a custom dental crown can make sure your tooth has lasting support after treatment. (more…)

Fix A Distracting Smile Problem Through Cosmetic Bonding

A relatively small problem with your smile can command more attention than you might like.

Our goal is to help patients feel fully confident in the appearance of their smile after a cosmetic procedure. Because of this, we provide personalized care, and access to a range of procedures that can help you see the results you want. (more…)
