At Comeaux Dental Group we practice restorative dentistry. Understanding how essential your teeth are to the overall health of your mouth, jawbone, and body, we seek to restore and preserve your teeth whenever possible. If you live in The Woodlands or Spring Area and damage any of your teeth, we encourage you to call one of our local neighborhood offices and schedule an immediate appointment.
We will examine you and determine the best way to save your natural tooth and prevent it from needing to be pulled. Using the latest in dental technology, we can quickly and painlessly diagnose and treat your condition. This is possible if you visit our office quickly and don’t delay. The more extensive the damage is, or the more infected your tooth becomes, the more challenging it can be to save it, making it imperative that you seek us out quickly. Our staff is friendly and accommodating, and we will do whatever we can to get your appointment scheduled for a time that is convenient for you.
Restorative Dentistry for Kids
While most adults are familiar with restorative dentistry, these solutions are also available for kids. If you have an elementary-age child or teenager, remember that their permanent teeth are the only teeth that they will ever have. If they damage one while playing sports or swinging on the monkey bars – give us a call.
At Comeaux Dental Group we can restore their teeth using a variety of methods and the sooner, the better. As with most things, if we can correct the damage quickly, there is a reduced risk of the site becoming infected or the damage spreading. With younger kids, we typically recommend a bonding procedure because we can complete it quickly, and it is non-invasive.
With bonding, a tooth-colored material is applied to the tooth and shaped. Once it looks perfect, we will use a dental light to harden it. The results look natural, and your child will be able to have a newly restored tooth in one visit. This is a painless procedure, which also makes it beneficial for both children and adults. The one challenge to be aware of is that their teeth may continue to grow and if so, the restored tooth may appear shorter and need to be touched up when they become an adult.
As experts in restorative dentistry, we can help them now and in the future. If someone in your family has a damaged tooth, give us a call to book your appointment at either The Woodlands or Spring Comeaux Dental Group locations so that we can restore it to full functionality.
Restorative Dentistry for Seniors
At Comeaux Dental Group we treat seniors throughout The Woodlands & Spring Area. We have found that many seniors assume that they will experience tooth loss and don’t attempt restorations when their teeth become damaged or infected. This is a mistake.
Whenever possible, we recommend that you save your natural teeth. Whether you live in the locally in the The Woodlands / Spring area or across the country, restorative dentistry plays a critical role in the health of your mouth and jaw. This is true for everyone and especially for seniors.
Most seniors, especially women, tend to experience some type of bone loss; the severity of which is highly dependent on a person's’ health history, diet, and whether or not they exercise. Bone loss can lead to an increased risk of breaking bones, a loss of height and a change in appearance. This is particularly true when it comes to your facial appearance. Your natural teeth provide stimulation and stregthen your jawbone.
Every time that you bite down and chew, your bone is being utilized, and the body supports it as such. If you start to lose teeth, the body may stop supporting the jawbone in that particular area because the stimulation will be lost. In this scenario, resorption starts to occur, and the body begins to take the calcium away from the jaw and feed it to other areas of the body. This can alter how a person appears and create an almost sunken-in facial appearance.
When we save a damaged or infected tooth, we are not only saving the tooth but also preserving the health and integrity of the jawbone and, therefore, your appearance. If you are a senior living in The Woodlands / Spring Area, don’t take your teeth for granted. Call us at the first sign of damage or infection so that we can save your teeth and restore them to good health.
If you have damaged a tooth and need it to be restored quickly, you need immediate dental restorations. Perhaps the fastest procedure we offer is dental bonding because it can be completed in one visit. This, however, is not the best solution for everyone. We also offer dental veneers and dental crowns. A veneer is a thin shell that is placed on the surface of your tooth and works to correct a chipped or cracked tooth. A crown surrounds your tooth like a cap and is more effective if there is extensive damage or a loss of enamel.
While both require two visits to one of our The Woodlands or Spring dental office, we can provide you with a temporary veneer or crown on your first visit so that your smile is restored, and you can begin to eat soft foods again.
After the second visit, where your permanent veneer or crown is placed, you will be able to eat all types of food again without fear of discomfort. By using a two-step process, we can ensure that you have a temporary and permanent solution for restoring your damaged tooth.
