Medicine is a field of specialization—just think of all the different physicians you may need in order to keep your family healthy. Perhaps you have a pediatrician, an allergist, a cardiologist, a dermatologist, a ophthalmologist and more. For your oral health, however, you only need one dental practice: Bear Branch Family Dentistry in The Woodlands, TX. Drs. Gutierrez and LeBlanc take pride in offering a comprehensive list of dental services, so you can take care of your family’s oral health in one convenient location. We want to be your family dentist!
Regular Dental Cleanings and Exams
Whether young or old, each one of your family members should have at least two dental cleanings and exams per year. At these appointments, one of our dental hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, so your mouth will feel refreshed and your smile will look bright. We’ll also carefully examine each tooth for early signs of decay, we’ll assess the health of your gums and conduct an oral cancer screening.
Fluoride Treatments and Dental Sealants
For everyone in your house, our family dentistry is geared toward preventing problems before they can even begin to develop. This is especially important for young children who just have a harder time keeping their teeth clean. That’s why your family dentist in The Woodlands, TX, might recommend fluoride treatments or dental sealants. Both of these strengthen and protect teeth, so your kids have a fighting chance against the daily attack of decay-causing bacteria.
For a fluoride treatment, we apply a gel or foam to the teeth and simply rinse away in a minute or two. Dental sealants, on the other hand, are painted on the biting surfaces of molars and dry to a hard surface that shields teeth for years.
For teenagers and adults, your family dentist in The Woodlands offers Invisalign. These clear braces straighten teeth much more discretely than traditional metal brackets and wires. The dentists plan your treatment based on your unique orthodontic need. Then, Invisalign fabricates aligners designed to move your teeth according to this plan.
Although we mostly think of older people losing teeth, the truth is that tooth loss can happen at any age. One of the best options for tooth replacement is a dental implant. With a biocompatible post for a root and a porcelain crown or implant retained dentures for the visible portion of your tooth, you’ll once again have a complete and healthy smile.
