Hearing that you have periodontal disease or “gum disease” can be upsetting. Here at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS in San Antonio, Texas, we are committed to educating and assisting patients in preventing gum disease. If you discover that you already have gum disease, don’t despair. We can help.
Most dental patients in the San Antonio and Leon Springs area know that they can go to their local dentist for toothaches, cleanings, and bleeding gums (not to mention cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers), but there are some lesser-known oral concerns that your Beorne dentist can also help you with.
Providing quality dental care is much easier for San Antonio area dentists when they have extensive, comprehensive information about their patients’ oral health – and pictures are far more accurate than written notes. To go a step further: pictures that show what’s going on below the visible surface of your teeth and gums are worth even more than a thousand words. So, along with a thorough oral exam, most dentists want complete and up-to-date x-rays.
If you are considering a multi-procedure smile makeover or extensive restorative dental work, here are five considerations:
All At Once Or Over Time?
At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS, our San Antonio smile makeover patients can often receive several (or all) procedures in one visit. It all depends on the specific procedures necessary to achieve your perfect smile. Dr. William Stewart develops a unique treatment plan for each patient after an extensive consultation and examination.
Sealants are covered by most Texas dental insurance plans. For San Antonio parents who pay out-of-pocket, sealants are still cost-effective, considering the cavities and future visits they can help you avoid. Some Texas dental insurance plans have age limitations for sealants. Check your policy if you are unsure. William J. Stewart Jr. DDS recommends having sealants applied as early as possible.
One of the most important habits San Antonio residents can form is to always allow their toothbrush to completely air dry between uses. The best way to let the toothbrush air dry is by placing it in a toothbrush holder on the counter with the bristles pointing up. This method of storage is much better than sticking it away in a drawer since it will take longer to dry in there.
