Dentist Houston 5 Things To Know!
1.  Don't Wait 'Til It Hurts   Patients procrastinate a check-up or treatment simply because of the false notion that "nothing hurts". Gum disease is a silent, painless, progressive killer of teeth that is also a source of chronic low-grade inflammation to the whole body. Tooth decay is also painless until it becomes deep, which puts you at the risk of needing more extensive and costly treatment.

2,  Good Dentistry may be Expensive, but not as much as Bad Dentistry  Many patients try to "shop" for the cheapest dentist they can find. While this is understandable in this economy, often, unknowingly, these patients can find themselves in unexperienced hands or with a practice who uses inferior materials or laboratory services, resulting in ill-fillting appliances or dentistry that fails or breaks down quickly. In dentistry, you really do get what you pay for, Our practice uses the most up-to date materials, and works with some of the best Dental Labs in Texas.

3.  Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan  Always get a prioritized treatment plan for the problems that may exist in your mouth. Even if you cannot get all the work done, you can get your treatment done in order of importance or necessity to minimize pain and costs.

4.  Change the Oil  The same way you need to maintain that new car that you drive off the lot, many patients finish treatment plans and do not understand the need for follow-up care or maintenance. Besides the obvious benefits of prevention, the periodic maintenance (teeth cleanings and check-ups) is the key factor in making this treatment last- including fillings, veneers, crowns, implants, dentures, and periodontal treatment.

5.  The Head Bone's Connected to the Neck Bone  Your mouth is a reflection of what can be going on in the rest of the body, and the oral/systemic link is a major topic of interest in medical research.  Gum disease puts you at greater risk of diseases of your heart, brain, liver, and pancreas just to name a few. Good oral health is linked to living a longer and healthier life. Keep your regular check-ups and cleanings every 6 months. If you maintain a check-up and cleanings every 6 months, then we can find small problems that are less costly before they become big problems that are very costly.
