General Dentistry in Sugar Land
Though many people may not give it too much thought, having your biannual dental checkup is very important to your oral and overall health. The American Dental Association suggest that you see your dentist biannually, that way they can be sure to make sure your smile, and everything involving your oral health, is healthy and working well. Although brushing and flossing every day are excellent ways in making sure your smile stays at its best, Sugar Land dentist Dr. Paul Davey is able to inspect all of the areas you cannot. He will be able to look at every tooth in your smile, replace old dental work with tooth-colored alternatives, and address any underlying issues that may be present.
Another thing Dr. Davey offers as a part of his general dentistry at his Sugar Land, TX dental office is sleep apnea therapy. If you or your partner experience tiredness and drowsiness during the day and snore loudly at night, there is chance sleep apnea is the cause. Dr. Davey will be able to perform an evaluation, and if sleep apnea is the cause, he will be able to recommend an oral appliance, such as a mouthpiece. This works by being able to open your airway while you sleep by slightly pushing your lower jaw forward.
Periodontal disease therapy is another aspect of general dentistry, and this comes in handy when your gums are not as healthy as they should be. 70% of tooth loss is attributed to periodontal disease, and if left untreated, it can lead to many other negative effects such as heart disease, dementia, bone loss, and etcetera. If you have gums that are sensitive, swollen and red, gums that bleed when you brush or floss, you may have periodontal disease.Dr. Davey will be able to handle and reverse your periodontal disease in the comfort of his Sugar Land, TX dental office. Healthy gums are a foundation to a beautiful smile, and when that is compromised, there is nothing good that can come out of it.
