April is a busy month in Mansfield, TX. There are a number of fun community events happening, and with warmer weather and sunny days, now is the perfect time to head out and explore your community. In today’s blog, we’re going to cover a few upcoming events. Remember, we also have preventive, cosmetic, and restorative treatments to ensure you attend these events with a healthier and more attractive smile.
We work hard to help our Mansfield, TX, patients enjoy optimal oral health. In addition to taking steps to preserve natural teeth, we sometimes actually need to remove a tooth to improve overall oral health. In today’s blog, we’re looking at when an extraction is beneficial for a person’s smile, and what they should expect from the procedure.
Missing teeth may mean a greater risk of serious complications, from misalignment and difficulties eating to problems speaking clearly and further tooth loss. In order to return smiles to full function, beauty, and health, we need to replace your missing tooth. If you have one or more missing teeth, then talk to your Mansfield, TX, dentist about dental implants.
As we grow older, many of us will develop periodontal disease. According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, by age 74 over 26% of us have lost all of our teeth, often as a result of gum disease and other factors. In order to address advanced tooth loss, including that caused by periodontal troubles, we offer residents of Mansfield, TX, lifelike and dependable dentures. In fact, we may even secure them with dental implants.
In today’s blog, we would like to take a little break from our usual dental topics, and focus on the community of Mansfield, TX. This weekend and next week there will be a number of fun and exciting events for the whole family to take part in. We also want to remind you that we have treatment to ensure you attend community events with a brighter smile!
Treating cavities has long been one of the most common restorative dentistry goals. That’s because cavities (and the tooth decay that causes them) are the most common chronic issue to affect children’s and adult’s teeth. In many cases, that treatment involves the cleaning and filling of the cavity, which stops it from growing worse and restores the tooth’s structural integrity. At our Mansfield, TX, dental office, we often recommend treating cavities with tooth-colored fillings, which offer a number of benefits for your tooth as well as your long-term oral health. (more…)
Multiple factors could cause tooth loss, from severe infections to gum disease or even injury. When gaps appear in your smile due to missing teeth, then the health of your smile could suffer. Fortunately, we can help people in Mansfield, TX, by placing a lifelike dental bridge. How do we design and create these natural looking prosthetics?
Every dental issue is unique, which is why every dental treatment should be tailored to your specific needs. For example, teeth stains are common, but not all types of tooth discoloration are the same. A cracked tooth could be a minor cosmetic issue, a serious restorative concern, or both, depending on its size and location. Because everyone’s needs are unique, we offer a wide variety of personalized treatment options at our Mansfield, TX, dental office, including customizable dental crowns that can address discoloration, strengthen and protect a tooth, and more.

Do you regularly snore? If so, you may be experiencing poor sleep, in addition to driving your significant other crazy. In order to stop this and enjoy a better night’s rest, you may need to undergo sleep apnea treatment. We’re talking about the link between snoring and sleep apnea, and when people in Mansfield, TX, should schedule an appointment.
Snoring is a problem for millions of people, but for some of them, it’s more important than it is for others. That’s because it can often indicate the presence of a sleep disorder known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). People who suffer from sleep apnea will snore increasingly more loudly each night, and ignoring it can lead to several different symptoms. At our Mansfield, TX, dental office, we offer customized treatment to help alleviate the symptoms and potential health risks associated with sleep apnea. (more…)
