Round Rock Family Dentistry ServicesOpting for a good dental care is very important in life regardless of your age. It is widely known that dental hygiene is not only important for a nice smile but also for the whole body.

The importance of good oral health is much more than what most people realize. Unless you’ve ever suffered from serious dental problems,  it’s easy to downplay their effect. Even a simple dental problem like tooth ache can make your whole body unwell. It’s common for excruciating mouth pain to keep you awake throughout the night, obviously leading to fatigue and weakness.

By practicing good oral hygiene at home and scheduling regular checkups with your dentist, you can help keep your smile bright and healthy for many years to come. Here are a few simple steps to take:

  1. Cleanings –  This involves removing dental plaque from teeth in order to prevent cavities.
  2. X-rays – Dental x-rays can be used to detect damage and disease which may not be visible during a regular dental exam.
  3. Gum disease evaluation and treatment – Gum disease is usually caused by chronic bacterial infection that affects the gums and the bone.
  4. Fillings – This is commonly used to fill cavities caused by tooth decay; we also routinely apply sealants for children to prevent future cavities.
  5. Bridges – Used to bridge the gap due to one or more missing teeth.
  6. Dentures & Dental Implants – This are removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues
