Dr. Wainwright and the team at Austin Dental Care are passionate about providing high-quality 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.
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.
Is dental fear or anxiety keeping you away from the dentist? Sedation dentistry is a simple way to have a pain-free and stress-free visit to the dentist. Minor or complex dental concerns can be addressed with sedation options, and can be used by most any patient.
If you have severely decayed teeth, they may need to be removed. Root canals can be done to try to remove infection and clean out teeth, but if teeth are too damaged for this treatment, extraction is necessary. Tooth extraction is not only an option for decayed teeth but can also treat damaged teeth, crowded teeth, and misaligned teeth.
