Read on to see the wide variety of dental services we offer for the entire family.

Preventive Dentistry

As the name suggests, preventive dentistry is aimed at preventing potential problems such as cavities and periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease. While cleaning your teeth, we use irrigation with antimicrobial agents to ensure that harmful bacteria is removed from your teeth and gums so that you stay protected. Other preventive measures include:

  • Oral Cancer Screening
  • Hygiene Services
  • X-Rays
  • Halitosis Treatment

Pediatric Dentistry

Helping your child establish healthy dental habits can ensure their natural smile lasts a lifetime. That’s why the experts at Smile Maker of Texas take extra care to provide quality pediatric dental services in a comfortable and educational environment. We’re here to support you in helping your child achieve a healthy smile and get excited about dental health. 

In addition to providing thorough cleanings and education for your child, a common treatment for children is dental sealants. Sealants work for both children and adults to prevent the buildup of bacteria and food particles. This preventive treatment is made of similar material as a dental filling, and is designed to add an extra layer of protection to particularly vulnerable teeth. 

Tooth Repair

Poor dental hygiene can result in a buildup of bacteria in the form of plaque and tartar. If not removed, the bacteria can infiltrate your healthy teeth causing little holes in the teeth known as cavities. Cavities have to be treated by a professional dentist like Dr. Beougher because they don’t go away on their own.  Your personalized cavity treatment will depend on how much damage your teeth have sustained. Cavity treatments can include:

  • Composite Fillings
  • Porcelain Crowns
  • Root Canal Therapy

Tooth Extraction

While we aim to preserve natural teeth whenever possible, sometimes a tooth has sustained too much damage due to injury or tooth decay. If an afflicted tooth threatens to impact your overall dental wellness, Dr. Beougher may recommend a tooth extraction. Tooth extraction is very common for wisdom teeth in particular, and we offer sedation options to ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible. 

Periodontal Care

Keeping a healthy smile goes beyond the state of your teeth. Your gums not only protect the roots of your teeth and hold them in place but also act as a defense against bacteria. When oral hygiene habits fall by the wayside, your gums become susceptible to infections like gum disease. Gum disease, otherwise known as periodontal disease, occurs in stages and it is essential you seek care sooner rather than later. 

The earliest stage of periodontal disease is known as gingivitis and is the only stage that is reversible with early intervention. If left untreated, you run the risk of tooth loss, severe pain, bone loss, and even health conditions such as heart disease, stroke, and more. That’s why the experts at Smile Maker of Texas provide quality periodontal charting and periodontal therapy to keep your gums healthy and strong.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our comprehensive dental exams are the best way for us to make sure your mouth is free from plaque and tartar (calculus) as well as screen for serious issues like oral cancer. 

During your exam, we’ll thoroughly clean your teeth and take X-rays to detect any underlying oral health issues.  we detect any problems, we can intervene sooner rather than later. If we do find signs of cavities or periodontal disease, we’ll provide a treatment plan designed to bring your oral health back in good standing. 

Your exam is also the perfect time to ask any questions and we’ll ensure to communicate along the way so that you are informed about your care throughout the process.

Our mouths have their own microbiome that’s home to natural, healthy bacteria that help break down our food so that our bodies can better absorb nutrients. When food particles or excess sugar are left behind, it can throw things out of balance. 

Unhealthy bacteria can produce toxins that inflame the gums and eat away at the teeth. If not removed with efforts such as daily brushing, rinsing after meals, and flossing before bed, the bacteria can form into a sticky film-like substance called plaque. While plaque can generally be removed by increasing oral hygiene habits, if left alone plaque can harden into a substance called tartar (calculus), which can only be removed with specialized dental tools. 

Once the toxins from the plaque and tartar eat through the protective layer of your teeth (enamel), they cause holes  in the tooth called cavities.
