General dentistry solutions for Longview, TX area patients
Most dental practices provide general dentistry procedures. Dr. Clint Bruyere and his team in the Longview, TX area offer a wide variety of procedures and treatments to keep the smile healthy and beautiful!Some of the services provided include:
- Dental education – when it comes to maintaining a healthy smile, educating patients on how to care for their teeth and gums is the first step. With proper knowledge, patients can fully understand how to avoid the development of issues such as dental caries (otherwise known as cavities) and periodontal disease. Both can have long-lasting negative effects on the health, beauty, and function of the smile. With proper preventative care, patients can avoid many of these concerns to maintain their oral health and wellness.
- Periodontal disease – when conditions such as gum disease develop, it is essential patients get a proper diagnosis as soon as possible. Diagnosing the condition helps the dentist evaluate the point at which the disease has reached and provide patients the treatments necessary to bring the smile back to health. Treatments may include scaling and root planing.
- Cavities – when cavities develop, they can permanently affect the health of the smile. They eat away at the natural tooth enamel, and if left untreated, can become painful. Patients with large cavities often experience problems such as sensitivities to sweets such as discomfort when eating or drinking sugary foods or beverages. Some patients eventually develop an extremely painful toothache if the cavity reaches deep enough to affect the dental pulp inside of the tooth’s structure. This can be avoided with proper oral health care and early detection.
