Are you looking for a quality dentistry center to make sure your teeth stay healthy? The dentists of Lovett Dental Katy are here to help. Below is more information about the general dentistry services that we provide.
What Is General Dentistry?
We offer a variety of services under general dentistry. These services include cleaning and dental exams, fluoride treatments, sealants, tooth-colored composite fillings, root canals, extractions, crowns and bridges, dentures, nightguards, sedation and dental anxiety, and emergency dental care.
Cleaning and Dental Exams
Cleanings and dental exams are important to have done on a regular basis. Cleanings and dental exams can help keep your teeth healthy and gives us a chance to check your teeth and see if you have any issues that may become serious if not treated right away.
Fluoride treatments are the best way to prevent tooth decay. This mineral is found in most food and water, although not enough is found in both to keep your teeth from decaying.
Sealants are another way to prevent tooth decay. Plastic resins are placed on teeth to bond and harden in grooves that are hard to reach for toothbrushes.
Tooth-Colored Composite Fillings
Composites are placed on teeth to replace damage done from cracks, decay, and fractures. Taking care of these fillings will help them last a long time.
Root canals are an option to having a tooth removed. A serious toothache, pain when chewing, dark discoloration on a tooth, and long term sensitivity or pain to cold or hot temperatures.
Extractions are performed when a baby tooth won’t fall out on its own or a decayed tooth needs to be removed to prevent further damage in the surrounding area.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges can replace or repair damaged teeth. Crowns are recommended for fractured or broken teeth, large or fractured fillings, a tooth with a root canal, cosmetic improvements, and decayed teeth. Porcelain bridges are done to replace teeth that are missing, to fix a bridge, keep teeth in place, improve speaking, help improve your smile, and help you chew again.
We offer several types of dentures, including implant-supported dentures, removable partial, immediate, and conventional dentures. Dentures can help restore confidence from losing a good amount or all of your teeth.
Many people grind or clench their teeth at night without knowing. A dentist can point out tooth loss from this. Nightguards help keep you from doing this, preventing further damage to your teeth.
Sedation and Dental Anxiety
Getting anxious about going to the dentist is a common fear that can be overcome. Sedation can help you overcome your anxiety and allow you to have a pleasant experience at the dentist. IV sedation, nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, and oral sedation are all options we have available as part of our general dentistry services.
Emergency Dental Care
Sometimes emergencies come up, which are unpleasant, but something we can help with. Call us or walk-in and we will see you right away.
