Dr. Wainwright and the team at Austin Dental Care are passionate about providing high-quality family dental care for patients of all ages. Before your child’s first visit, you can review what the visit will be like with them and read books about the dentist. Preparing your child for the dentist can make visits more enjoyable for them and can encourage healthy dental habits. It can also prevent dental anxiety from developing at an early age. To learn more about your preventative dental care options, see Family Dentistry.
If you or your child play contact sports, you need to wear a sports mouthguard. Sports mouth guards protect teeth from injury and can help prevent restorative dental work in the future. Wearing a mouthguard during sports offers many benefits. Mouthguards prevent tooth loss, fit securely, reduce the chance of concussion, protect dental work from damage, and provide a stable result.
“Boil and bite” mouthguards found in stores don’t offer a custom professional fit. Over-the-counter mouthguards may fall out or make it difficult to speak. Professional custom-fit mouth guards should fit securely and not restrict speech. To learn more about how we can help you protect your teeth on the field, see Custom Mouthguards.
Is dental fear or anxiety keeping you away from the dentist? Dental sedation is a simple way to have a pain-free and stress-free visit to the dentist. We can address minor to complex dental concerns using sedation options. Best of all, almost any patient can benefit from using dental sedation for a painless dental visit. To learn about what our sedation options can do for you, see Sedation Dentistry.
If you have severely decayed teeth, your dentist may need to remove them. A dentist can attempt to save a tooth by removing infection and cleaning out the root canals. However, extraction is necessary if your decayed tooth is beyond saving. A tooth extraction is not only an option for decayed teeth but can also treat damaged teeth, crowded teeth, and misaligned teeth. To learn about how Dr. Wainwright can relieve you of tooth pain, see Tooth Extractions.
A dentist can place fillings on teeth that have cavities (holes) or other types of damage. Your dentist may also use fillings to cover up dark spots on teeth due to tooth decay, stains from coffee or medications, or cracks in the tooth surface. Some dentists provide fillings during a general check-up, while others may provide treatment as an emergency procedure. To find out if you need a filling, you can ask Dr. Wainwright at your next dental exam.
