Our team at Tyler Dental Care is committed to helping our community achieve and maintain great oral health. Your oral health is precious and should be trusted with a compassionate, knowledgeable, and dedicated dentist. Our general dentistry services include checkups and cleanings, consultations, and dental emergencies.

 

A Full-Service Dental Practice for All Your Needs

Our practice is dedicated to providing quality oral healthcare with a focus on increasing oral health for those in our community and detecting potential issues as soon as possible. Early detection saves patients precious oral tissue and time in the dental chair. Moreover, conservative treatments are typically lower in cost than more invasive treatments used to address advanced oral disease.

 

Checkups and Cleanings

Checkups and cleanings are a necessity for maintaining optimal oral health. Without cleanings and checkups, people are at risk for developing advanced forms of conditions like dental caries or periodontal disease. Checkups are very thorough. Our dentist will look for signs of tooth decay, worn dentition, periodontal (gum) disease, jawbone density, and oral cancer.

 

Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies are unfortunate (and uncomfortable) realities that many folks have to face at least once in their lives. While breaking a tooth, losing a crown, or developing a toothache is inconvenient and uncomfortable, our practice can help restore your oral function and comfort. If you have a dental emergency, call our office as soon as possible so that we can arrange for your treatment.

COMMON GENERAL DENTISTRY QUESTIONS

Why should I go to the dentist regularly?

There are many reasons why you should visit the dentist regularly – and all of these reasons can benefit your oral health and wellbeing. Regular visits to your dentist increase the odds that potential issues can be identified before they advance into problematic and destructive problems. Early detection means that our practice can treat issues as conservatively as possible. A conservative approach to treatment allows patients to retain as much biologic tooth structure as possible while eliminating the likelihood of an issue progressing into a dangerous oral health condition.

How often should I brush and floss?

Brushing and flossing is the foundation for protecting your oral health. When you brush and floss, you are removing debris from leftover food, bacteria, and substances like plaque (which are by-products of bacterial colonization). The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that patients brush their teeth two to three times a day. During brushing, each tooth and all its surfaces should be gently brushed along with the tongue, gums, and roof of the mouth. Each brushing session should last for about two minutes.

While brushing certainly cleans a lot of surface area, it is not enough. There are numerous places a toothbrush can’t reach – such as in between teeth and just beneath the gum line. Flossing is a necessity because it removes debris and substances that contribute to gum disease and tooth decay. The ADA strongly encourages people to floss every day.

How often should I have a cleaning?

Many people enjoy dental cleanings because the results are noticeable: a person’s mouth will feel incredibly clean. While the sensation of a clean mouth is appealing, there are plenty of reasons why dental cleanings are a good idea.

You should have two dental cleanings each year. Visiting our office every six months for cleanings is a great way for our team to monitor your oral health and make sure that your oral hygiene practices at home are paying off.

Even though dental cleanings are non-invasive, they do have a preventive treatment benefit. Regular cleanings greatly reduce a person’s risk for developing gum disease. Without regular professional cleanings, a person will develop tartar accumulation. Tartar cannot be removed by brushing or flossing. It must be scraped away very gently with handheld dental instruments.

Will a tooth extraction hurt?

A tooth extraction can produce some post-operative discomfort while a person is recovering from treatment. More than likely, however, a person requiring an extraction experiences discomfort long before his or her oral surgery. This is because teeth are typically extracted when they are badly injured or diseased.

Fortunately, tooth extractions can provide relief from issues like impacted wisdom teeth or abscessed teeth. When performing any type of treatment, our team takes measures necessary to ensure that our guests are comfortable and at ease. We strive to provide comfortable oral healthcare with advanced technology and dedication.
