Gum Disease Spring, TX

Gum disease is caused by a buildup of plaque (a sticky form of bacteria that forms on the teeth). If the plaque is not removed (by flossing, brushing, and regular dental checkups), it will continue to build up and create toxins that can damage the gums. Periodontal disease forms just below the gum line and creates small pockets that separate the gums from the teeth. Periodontal disease has two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis.

Gingivitis — This is the early stage of gum disease, when the gums become red and swollen, and bleed easily. At this stage, the disease is treatable and can usually be eliminated by daily brushing and flossing.
Periodontitis — If left untreated, gingivitis will advance into periodontitis, and the gums and bone that support the teeth will become seriously and irreversibly damaged. Gums infected with periodontitis can cause teeth to become loose, fall out, or be removed by a dentist.

Dentures & Bridges Spring, TX

Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. There are two types of dentures: full and partial.

Full Dentures are given to patients when all of the natural teeth have been removed. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Immediate full dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed and may require frequent adjustments during the first couple of months of use.
Partial Dentures consist of fake teeth attached to either an acylic (gum color) base or a metal frame that fits in between your natural teeth and are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Partial dentures are considered a removable alternative to bridges.

If you have missing teeth, a bridge may be used to replace them. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite.

Using artificial teeth, a bridge will fill in the spaces of missing teeth, and they look great. Your bridge can be made out of gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials, and is bonded onto the surrounding teeth for support.

Root Canals & Endodontics Spring, TX

A tooth’s nerve is not crucial to it’s health or function after the tooth has emerged through the gums. The only function it has is sensory, it provides the sensation of hot or cold. The presence or absence of a nerve will not affect the day-to-day functioning of your tooth.

However, when a tooth is cracked or has a deep cavity, bacteria is able to enter the pulp tissue and germs can cause an infection inside the tooth. If this is left untreated, an abscess can form. If the diseased tissue is not removed, pain and swelling will occur. This will in turn affect your jawbone, and can be detrimental to your overall health. Without the proper care, your tooth will most likely have to be pulled.
