It’s common for people to fear going to the dentist, even when there’s nothing to be worried about. If you avoid going to the dentist because of dental anxiety, sedation dentistry may be the option for you. Dr. Logan Wood and Dr. Radley Robins at Conroe Family Dentistry in Conroe, TX, offer sedation dentistry to ease all of your dental anxiety and get you feeling more confident about going to the dentist again.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry can help you by blocking your pain receptors with local anesthetics or medications that can help you relax and feel totally comfortable at the dentist. When you’re afraid of going to the dentist, every sensation may feel intensified and more concerning than it actually is and sedation dentistry can help you stop stressing about the dentist. First, your dentist in Conroe, TX, will discuss your medical history and determine if you’re eligible for sedation dentistry.

Some forms of sedation dentistry include:

  • Oral Sedation- Oral sedation is applied by mouth and can be taken through pill form. This method is usually preferred because it’s easy, yet effective and doesn’t require the use of needles, and begins to work in a matter of minutes.
  • Inhalation Conscious Sedation- This method has been used in dental offices for years and is a fairly well-known form of sedation dentistry. Nitrous oxide is a sedative that you inhale and is administered through a nasal hood, which is a cup-like device that is placed over the nose.
  • IV Conscious Sedation- This form of sedation has an almost immediate effect and sedation is administered through an IV in the veins.

A dentist can do so much more than simply perform routine checkups.

We know that seeing the dentist isn’t as pleasant as a day spent cozy on the couch or enjoying a delicious slice of cake; however, it’s something that everyone must do if they want to keep healthy, beautiful smiles. Of course, along with those six-month checkups, there are other reasons why you may need to consult Conroe, TX, dentists Dr. Logan Wood and Dr. Radley Robins. Some of these reasons include,

You have a toothache

A toothache is your tooth’s way of telling you that someone is wrong. Unfortunately, unlike a pulled muscle or broken bone, a tooth can’t heal itself. This is why a toothache is considered a dental emergency. The sooner our Conroe, TX, general dentists treat the problem, the better. A toothache can be a warning sign of a cavity, abscess, cracked tooth, or infected dental pulp.

Your jaw is popping and painful

Do your jaws pop or clip when you open and close them? Are they stiff, achy, or painful? If you grind your teeth at night (or perhaps during the day, too) then your teeth grinding could have led to a TMJ disorder, a dysfunction of the jaw joint.

Not only does this lead to facial pain and headaches, but it also can wear down teeth, weakening them and leaving them prone to damage. Luckily, your dentist can create a custom bite guard for you to wear at night to protect your teeth and alleviate jaw pain.

You’re embarrassed by your smile

Many people aren’t happy with their smiles. From crooked teeth to a large gap between the front teeth, there are many reasons why someone may feel embarrassed by their smile. If this sounds like you, know that our dental team offers a variety of cosmetic treatments to reshape, brighten and straighten your smile the way you want.

Your gums are inflamed or bleeding

Puffy, tender, and bleeding gums are all signs of gum disease. You must catch these problems early when gingivitis can actually be reversed through professional dental cleanings and by amping up your at-home oral care routine. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and severe gum damage, so it’s important to see your dentist if puffiness or bleeding doesn’t go away after a couple of days.

You notice a sore or lesion

There are many reasons why sores or spots may appear in the mouth. It could be that you burned your gums while drinking something hot or scratch the gums while eating something crunchy; however, it’s a good idea to see your dentist if you notice any red or white patches or sores that last for more than a week, as this could be a sign of oral cancer.

Is it time to call our Conroe, TX, family dentist? From dental cleanings to restorative dentistry, we offer a wide range of services to meet your needs. Call Conroe Family Dentistry at (936) 539-2211.

Family dental care is essentially an area of dentistry that offers services to individuals of all age groups. Here at Conroe Family Dentistry, Dr. Logan Wood and Dr. Radley Robins offer family dentistry services that focus on preventing and treating dental issues that can impact an individual at any age.

To better understand why and what family dentistry services will be suitable for you, check out their benefits below.

Appropriate and Convenient Dental Care for The Entire Family

During their training and education, family dentists gain valuable experience in giving suitable dental care to kids and adults alike. Ultimately, they know what treatments will work best for which dental problem and which family member. Additionally, keeping up with dental appointments for the whole family will be much more convenient and manageable.

Timely Preventive Oral Health Care

As much as possible, oral health care issues must be detected even before they cause significant problems to prevent them from progressing. Family dentists provide a broad range of preventive oral health care treatments like extensive oral health examinations, professional cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, dental fillings, and crowns, among others, for identifying and nipping all sorts of dental issues regardless of your age.

A Trust-Based and Long-Lasting Relationship For More Positive Oral Health Outcomes

Dental anxiety, phobia, or fear typically arises when an individual doesn’t have a close relationship with a dentist that they can really trust. The family dentistry services we offer in our Conroe, TX, office enables your family to continue visiting the same family dentist throughout your life.

This is crucial for helping each family member, especially the younger ones, build a bond with the family dentist, in turn, alleviating any fears or apprehension during routine dental treatments and checkups.

Ensure That Your Oral Hygiene is Effective At Any Stage of Life

Family dentists are well-equipped to give everyone in your family the most appropriate advice on oral hygiene based on your age and any challenges to the effective implementation of proper oral care practices. Whether you have little ones that are just starting to navigate their way around proper oral hygiene habits or need a dentist to replace a senior parent’s missing teeth, a family dentist can do all that and more.

For a smile you'll love and others will notice, see Dr. Logan Wood and Dr. Radley Robins at Conroe Family Dentistry. In their Conroe, TX, practice these cosmetic dentists help patients improve a single dental feature or transform an entire smile for unbeatable self-confidence.

Think ahead

Consider how you want your smile to change. Then, come to our office for a consultation with Dr. Robins or Dr. Wood. Your cosmetic dentist will inspect your teeth and gums and suggest practical and aesthetic ways to enhance their appearance.

For instance, maybe too much gum tissue shows when you smile. Or, do you have dark stains from coffee and cigarettes? Do you need two crowns on those chipped front teeth, or would porcelain veneers be the better choice?

Whatever you dream, you likely can achieve it. However, good dentist and patient communication is key to a successful smile makeover, says the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). After your consultation, you'll have a customized care plan.

Our featured services

Here's what available to you:

  • Professional teeth whitening to remove years of organic stains and brighten tooth enamel to a Hollywood shine
  • White fillings for a natural-looking and durable solution to dental decay
  • Porcelain veneers, thin laminates of high-grade ceramic bonded over chips, cracks, gaps and poor size and shape
  • Porcelain crowns to support and protect decayed, chipped or abscessed teeth, sparing them from further damage or even extraction
  • Inlays and Onlays, partial crowns which are fitted into or on top of tooth cusps on damaged chewing surfaces
  • Six Month Smiles, the clear, fast way to straight teeth directly in the smile zone
  • Composite resin bonding to repair cracks and chips and restore decay seamlessly
  • Cosmetic contouring, a light enamel buffing and sanding which corrects small defects such as pits, chips and craze lines

We use high-quality materials, advanced imaging and impression techniques for exceptional results.

Tooth fractures, breaks and cracks may put your smile at risk. Fortunately, your dentists, Drs. Logan Wood and Radley Robins of Conroe Family Dentistry in Conroe, TX, can help protect your damaged teeth with dental crowns.

What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is created from an impression of your mouth and looks just like a tooth minus its roots. The hollow design allows the crown to slip over your tooth, covering it completely. Before you receive a crown, your tooth will be reduced in size slightly to accommodate the restoration.

Crowns are made of materials that look just like tooth enamel, including porcelain, ceramic, resin, and porcelain-fused-to-metal. These materials are not only attractive but durable enough to withstand years of wear-and-tear.

We are able to do crowns in a day, so you'll only need to schedule a single visit with our Conroe dental office if you are going to receive a dental crown. How does this restoration work? It's simple and technological all at the same time. We take impressions of the tooth and surrounding hard and soft oral tissues.

Your crown is designed and manufactured right in the office. The crown is fashioned from a single piece of tooth-colored ceramic.

After shaping your tooth to receive the crown, the dentist uses a light-activated cement to bond the crown in place. The crown replicates your old tooth but is strong, naturally-colored and perfectly shaped to bite and blend in with its neighbors.

When are crowns needed?

Crowns protect teeth that are cracked, brittle, or fragile, preventing them from breaking. They're also used to strengthen teeth weakened by large fillings or root canal therapy. Your crown absorbs biting forces generated when you chew, protecting your damaged tooth.

You may also need a crown if a tooth breaks or fractures. Broken teeth are certainly very noticeable, but the change in your appearance isn't the only issue. The exposed edges of your teeth can be very painful unless they're covered by a crown. Those edges may also cut your mouth, gums, tongue, and lips when you chew.

Crowns restore the normal shape, height, and width of your tooth, enhancing your appearance and improving your chewing and biting ability. They're available in many common tooth shades to ensure that your new restoration looks completely natural in your mouth.

Concerned?

Safeguard your smile with dental crowns! Call your dentists in Conroe, TX, Drs. Wood and Robins of Conroe Family Dentistry, at (936) 539-2211 to schedule your appointment.
