Dentistry for Children, Teens, and Adults

Achieving a healthy smile is important in each stage of life, extending from a patient's early years to the late adult years. Preston Hollow Dental Care offers many general family dentistry treatments to enable you and your children see the merits of excellent dental wellness at all ages. Whether you or your family need child-centered dental care, restorative treatments, cosmetic oral procedures, or later-life care, our facility offers efficient treatments that you can count on. At your family's oral health visits, Gabrielle Dizon will assess their teeth, gumline, and jawbone to detect any oral concerns that may be affecting their smiles. From there, our team will then determine the best procedures to treat their diverse dental health concerns. Call our Dallas, TX office when you can to set up yearly checkups or twice-yearly professional cleanings for each member of your family.

Candidates for Family Dentistry

People in every period of life should attend thorough oral cleanings and checkups at least two times each year, or any time they have any mild or severe discomfort or recent or lingering irregularities. Our team encourages parents to be sure their babies go to their first dental exam prior to their first birthday, as recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA). In cases where dental conditions, such as gum disease and cavities, are found early, corrective therapies will usually be more effectual. At Preston Hollow Dental Care, we are proud to offer extensive family dentistry services for people of many ages and parts of life, such as infants, kids, adolescents, men, women, soon-to-be mothers, and people who are 55 or older.

What to Expect During Your Visit

Standard dental check-ins should often comprise an evaluation and a thorough cleaning. Throughout your regular exams, our team will check for tooth decay, periodontal disease, temporomandibular joint discomfort, and any symptoms of other concerns. We will then go over your treatment solutions. Our effective family dentistry therapies are intended to meet a vast variety of needs, from protective dental solutions, like dental sealants, to fillings and restorations. Dental-treatment needs shift during a person's younger, adolescent, adult, and elderly stages of life. Our team has a detailed awareness of the dental wellness issues that form during these stages and will work with your family to help every one of you enjoy the upsides of a clean smile.

Maintain Your Oral Health

Approaching the conclusion of every annual assessment, our staff will help you develop a customized treatment program to boost and preserve your family's dental health. An easy way to maintain your oral wellness is to follow an effective dental hygiene regimen between exams, which includes precise brushing and flossing at home each day. A member of our team will instruct you on effective brushing and flossing approaches and provide you with advice about caring for spots that might demand more attention. Regular checkups at Preston Hollow Dental Care help our team monitor your relatives' oral health and pick up on small dental disorders before they become more damaging issues.

Insurance Coverage for Family Dentistry

A large number of family oral services are paid for by insurance. To learn about your coverage, our financial staff will evaluate your individual plan and give you an estimate of your out-of-pocket costs. Preston Hollow Dental Care hopes to make oral care accessible for every patient and takes a large number of payment options, such as low-interest medical payment plans.

FAQ ABOUT CAVITIES

What is a cavity?

Cavities begin as decay caused by bacteria in the mouth left by sugar-filled drinks and food, poor oral hygiene, or not visiting your dentist on a regular basis. These factors create a small hole, or cavity, in the enamel of the tooth. If left untreated, this small hole can turn into a big problem.

What causes cavities?

Harmful bacteria in the mouth, usually left by sugary drinks and foods, turn into a substance called plaque when not removed in a timely manner. The acid in the plaque erodes the tooth, weakening it, and causing a hole, or cavity in the enamel.

Factors that raise the chance of developing a cavity include:

  • Not brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day

  • Not visiting your dentist for an exam and cleaning twice a year

  • Tooth shape

  • A high gumline

  • Dry mouth

  • Consuming excessive sugar (soda, candy, juices)

What are the symptoms of a cavity?

The symptoms of cavities vary depending on how large the cavity is and where it is located. The symptoms of a cavity include:

  • A toothache or pain in the tooth

  • Sensitivity in the tooth to hot or cold temperatures

  • Mild to sharp pain when eating or drinking

  • Visible holes in the tooth

  • Stains that are brown, black, or white in color on the tooth’s surface

  • Pain when you bite down

How are cavities treated?

A cavity is usually removed from the tooth and the resulting hole is protected with a filling. If the cavity is too large for a filling, you may need an alternative treatment such as a dental crown, custom onlay, inlay, or root canal. If you do get cavities frequently, ask your dentist about preventive options such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
