Do You Need Dentures? Signature Smiles Can Help

If you are in the market for dentures, the first step is to schedule an appointment with one of our three Signature Smiles locations. Our high quality dentures are an easy solution for individuals who will need a full set of replacement teeth. Whether the teeth have been worn down due to age, or simply weak due to unfortunate dental genetics, dentures are a safe and easy option for a full set of tooth replacements.

WHY SHOULD I GET DENTURES?

Dentures have received a reputation as something only our elderly patients can benefit from. Although many dentures patients are elderly, due to tooth breakdown over the course of the aging process, they are not the only ones who benefit from dentures. Dentures are a solution for people of any age whose teeth are not able to continue to perform their necessary daily tasks. Choosing to replace your teeth with dentures can have significant benefits for all aspects of life. If your teeth are weak due to tooth breakdown, or have suffered extreme chipping, breakage, or other damage, schedule your dentures consultation appointment today.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHOOSING DENTURES?

Dentures have all sorts of benefits that improve everyday life. Most importantly, they replace the broken down, worn, or damaged teeth that needed removing. This allows our patients to more efficiently break down food, improve the quality of their smile, and even improve their speaking ability. Our teeth play a vital role in many aspects of life, and dentures allow our patients to continue to perform these functions the way they should. Confidence, however, is one of the universal benefits of dentures. All our denture patients have said they feel more confident in their smile after getting dentures at Signature Smiles.

Natural Looking Dental Fillings at Signature Smiles

Even if you come in for your semi-annual cleanings and are good at maintaining your oral hygiene routine at home, you can still be at risk of developing cavities. If you are a habitual snacker or sugar-lover, your teeth may be at extra risk for decay. If you have been told by one of our dentists that you have one or more cavities, you know what comes next. It is time for a dental filling. Many patients dread dental fillings, as the imagine them being unsightly marks on their teeth. However, this is no longer the case. At any of our three SIgnature Smiles locations in The Woodlands, The Heights, or even Humble, you can get your cavities filled with an unnoticeable, natural-looking filling.

RESTORE YOUR TEETH WITH NATURAL-LOOKING FILLINGS

At all our Signature Smiles locations, we utilize a tooth-colored high grade composite resin. This composite resin allows the filling to blend in beautifully with the rest of your tooth, creating an unnoticeable filling that protects the tooth. After removing the decayed area of the tooth, the filling is used to fill the area that was removed, and helps protect the tooth from further damage. Our Houston dental team does not utilize silver or mercury fillings, which were more common in the past, except in rare occasions where it is absolutely necessary.

WHY SHOULD I GET A FILLING?

If your teeth are broken, misshapen, or decayed, a filling may be your best option for restoring your tooth. Fillings are often used when the issue is not as severe enough to justify a crown or an extraction. If left untreated, tooth decay can spread deeper into the tooth, compromising it completely and requiring more extensive treatment. If caught soon enough (just another reason to come in for your semi-annual cleanings) a filling can be a quick and easy fix.

SCHEDULE YOUR NEXT APPOINTMENT WITH SIGNATURE SMILES

Whether you may be in need of a filling, or are looking to prevent cavities with a professional cleaning, we can help. Schedule an appointment with any of our three signature smiles locations in The Woodlands, Humble, or The Heights today.

root canal process at Signature Smiles Houston

What To Do If You May Need A Root Canal

Root canals are infamous for being an unpleasant procedure. In movies and TV, root canals are the cause of dreaded visits to the dentists, and dramatic tooth pain. This unfortunately causes a lot of misconceptions about the root canal process. If you are suffering from tooth pain or even swelling, a root canal can be a source of relief. This is why our team at Signature Smiles does our best to educate all our patients on the procedures we recommend. This helps all our patients feel more at ease, and better understand their own dental care.

WHY WOULD I NEED A ROOT CANAL?

Root canals are performed on patients who have an infected tooth, but the tooth is not beyond saving. If you are experiencing severe tooth decay, or complications with broken or chipped teeth, the first step is to call one of our three Signature Smiles locations in The Heights, The Woodlands, or Humble. Our team of expert dentists and hygienists will assess the state of the tooth, and determine whether or not a root canal should be performed. If it is determined that the tooth is able to be saved with a root canal, an appointment for the root canal will be scheduled.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING MY ROOT CANAL?

To start the procedure, a localized anesthetic will be applied, as well as sedation. This makes the process easy and comfortable for all our Signature Smiles patients. We are lucky to have an in-house anesthesiologist who will be able to expertly perform the sedation and anesthetic for maximum comfort. Once our patient is comfortable and sedated, we will begin the root canal process. This involved creating an access hole to remove the buildup of bacteria, and cleaning the area to ensure no bacteria is left behind. Then, this area will be sealed which prevents further bacteria from entering to tooth. In some cases a dental crown will be added to increase protection, depending on the individual patient. This process takes between 45-90 minutes on average. We recommend all our patients receive a ride home after the procedure, as it is dangerous to drive after sedation. At your next appointment, the process of rebuilding the tooth will begin.

SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT AT SIGNATURE SMILES TODAY

If you are suffering from tooth or mouth pain, come in to one of our three Signature Smiles locations. Whether you’re in Humble, The Woodlands, or The Heights, we have a conveniently located Signature Smiles location near you.

Why Are Teeth Cleanings Important For Adults?

As a kid, it was easy to get to the dentist twice a year for semi-annual teeth cleanings. Usually, your parents would take you, and sometimes you even got to leave school early. As an adult, however, getting a professional cleaning can feel like a chore. If you have let your professional cleaning schedule fall by the wayside, you may be putting yourself at risk for periodontal disease, also known as tooth and gum disease. This unpleasant disease is linked to all sorts of other diseases like diabetes and heart disease. Periodontal disease is being continually studied, but one thing is known for sure. Excellent oral hygiene, including your semi-annual deep cleaning, is the best way to avoid periodontal disease.

WHY PROFESSIONAL DEEP CLEANINGS MATTER

Even if you practice perfect oral hygiene at home, everyone can benefit from a semi-annual deep cleaning at one of our three Signature Smiles locations. Our deep cleanings go in-depth in making sure all plaque, tartar, and buildup are removed. Many times, it is difficult to remove every little thing that can get into and on your teeth at home. This is why semi-annual cleaning are so important. These cleanings are also a great way for our dentists to monitor how healthy your teeth are. If you are having issues with your at home routine, our dentists can also recommend specific products and techniques that will make your routine more effective. Since oral health is a very individual process, we will work with you to find a routine that works for you.

Caring For Your Child's Braces

It finally happened, your child got braces. They may have been excited to pick out their colors, or hesitant to start the process, but now they are on their way to straight and beautiful teeth. Whether your child will be in braces for a few months, or a few years, it is important to take proper care of their braces. With proper care and regular visits to one of our four Greater Houston area Signature Smiles locations, your child will be on the fast track to perfect teeth.

BRUSH YOUR BRACES CAREFULLY

Brushing your teeth is essential for everyone, but especially important for kids with braces. The metal brackets and wires add all sorts of places for bacteria to congregate. They also can make it more difficult for your child to brush and floss properly. If possible, getting an electric toothbrush designed for braces can be a lifesaver. These brushes are able to polish teeth much more efficiently than regular toothbrushes, and make getting around metal wires and brackets a breeze. If getting an electric toothbrush isn’t an option, that is okay. There are many other ways to make sure your child still has healthy teeth with braces. Make sure they are brushing after every meal, as food tends to stick in between the wires. Take extra care to brush around and on each bracket. When flossing, it can be hard to reach all the space between the tooth. It can sometimes be helpful the thread loose floss under the wires in order to reach any missed spots.

AVOID FOODS THAT COULD HARM YOUR BRACES

There are some foods that should be avoided while wearing braces. Anything that could damage brackets or wires, or is prone to sticking in them, is on the no-go list. This includes foods like whole apples, popcorn, and sticky candies like toffee and caramel. We also recommend avoiding chewing gum, as it can get stuck in wires and make a mess.

SPEAK WITH OUR TEAM AT SIGNATURE SMILES FOR YOUR BRACES QUESTIONS

These are just a few ways that you can help your child keep their smile healthy with braces. Our expert teams around Houston are here to help with any concerns about our patients braces. Give us a call today to set up your next appointment.
