What Are My Options for Replacing Missing Teeth?
We offer several options for replacing missing teeth at Smile Advanced Dental Care. Among them:
- Dental bridges
- Dental implants
Thanks to his years of hands-on experience and extensive training in restorative dentistry procedures, Dr. David Crowe can help you decide which options are best for your situation. We can replace anywhere from a single missing tooth to an entire mouthful of missing teeth.
Can Wearing a Mouthguard Help Me Stop Grinding My Teeth?
Yes! We can create a custom mouthguard for you using precise impressions of your teeth and other measurements. When worn at night, it can stop harmful teeth grinding that damages your teeth and may also contribute to other health issues, such as TMJ disorders.
Should I Be Worried About Gum Disease?
You can’t have healthy teeth without healthy gums, and gum disease (periodontal disease) is common among American adults. So we check for signs of gum disease during every dental exam in our New Braunfels, TX dentist office. We can treat gum disease with a thorough dental cleaning or, if needed, a special deep cleaning treatment called scaling and root planing. And we’ll educate you on how to prevent it in the future.
Can I Get Dental Sedation?
We can provide dental sedation in the form of a prescription pill you take before your appointment. You’ll arrive at our office already relaxed and remain that way throughout your treatment. Because dental sedation’s effects can last a little while, you’ll need to arrange a ride to and from our office.
