What Does Your San Antonio Dentist Need To Know?

For optimal dental health, all Shavano Park, Leon Springs, and Beorne residents should be visiting their dentist twice a year for routine cleanings and exams. This is a good time to make sure that you are brushing and flossing properly. It is also essential that you discuss issues related to dental health.

Make sure to tell your San Antonio dentist about any medications that you are taking. If you are using any tobacco products, you should inform your dentist. Your dentist might be able to offer you a program that can help you stop. Let your dentist know if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. If you have any type of eating disorder, you should also discuss this with your dentist. Ditto if you have a special health issue such as a heart condition. Oral health is an integral part of your overall physical health and cannot be isolated.

Your regular check up is also the perfect opportunity to inquire about San Antonio cosmetic dental procedures. Many dentists in the San Antonio area combine multiple procedures to give you a total smile makeover. If you have ever wondered what a new smile could do for you, now is the time to find out!

Hello. I’m Dr. William Stewart of William J. Stewart Jr. DDS. At my San Antonio dental practice, we offer:

Don’t Let Poor Oral Health Take You Out Of The Game

On January 15, 2016, in Oral Health, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Shavano Park cosmetic dental and tooth implants

It’s hard to win a gold medal if you have a toothache. A recent study cited in the British Journal of Sports Medicine explored how poor oral health affects athletic performance at the elite level.

“More than 40% of athletes were bothered by their oral health with 28% reporting an impact on quality of life and 18% on training and performance.”1

The dental problems experienced by Olympians and professional athletes are not any different than those found in the general population: tooth decay, dental erosion, periodontal disease, and inflammation around partially erupted wisdom teeth. It’s critical to note that these troubles are largely preventable.

Athletes are also at risk for mouth injuries suffered while competing or training.  Tooth trauma can prevent injured athletes from competing in the short term and cause ongoing complications down the road.

Whether you are an Olympic runner or a busy San Antonio working mom who seems to be running all the time, dental health affects your overall health and quality of life. Don’t let your performance suffer because of poor oral health.

If it has been a while since you have had a dental exam, we invite you to schedule a check-up and cleaning by calling William J. Stewart Jr. DDS at 210-428-6535.

William J. Stewart Jr. DDS is located at 13220 Huebner Rd in San Antonio, Texas. We provide general and cosmetic dental procedures including porcelain veneers and cosmetic dentistry. You can read more about our services at

“Don’t Take Stress Out On Your Teeth, San Antonio”

On January 8, 2016, in Oral Health, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Don't Take Stress Out On Your Teeth San Antonio Hello, I’m Dr. William Stewart. At my San Antonio practice I have noticed more and more of my patients with stress-related dental issues. San Antonio men and women may not think about it, but stress can do a number on your oral health.

Mouth sores, clenching and grinding, periodontal disease, and poor oral hygiene can all be exacerbated by stress.

San Antonio people who have difficulty managing stress need to realize that it can increase the risk of getting mouth sores such as cankers and cold sores. Most canker sores only last 7 to 10 days, but for relief from the irritation, we recommend our patients pick up an over-the-counter topical anesthetic at any Shavano Park, Leon Springs, or Beorne drug store.

Clenching and grinding the teeth is common for stressed-out San Antonio residents, and often it’s done unconsciously. Here at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS our patient-centered and detail oriented staff can determine if a night guard or other dental appliance is appropriate to reduce grinding.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is exacerbated by stress because stress can result in an increase in dental plaque.

And San Antonio dental patients may find that when they are under stress it is more common to neglect their oral hygiene habits. Many people in the Shavano Park, Leon Springs, and Beorne areas find that they eat more sugary snacks when they’re under stress.

If you’re concerned about the effect stress can have on your teeth, schedule an appointment at William J. Stewart Jr. DDS today. We treat patients from age 20 to 70 and we offer sedation dentistry, dental crowns, root canals, and teeth whitening. We hope to hear from you soon!

The overall success rate of many dental procedures, including dental implants, has increased.

What Is Lurking Under Your Gumline?

On December 4, 2015, in Gum Disease, by Stewart Costmetic Dentistry

Gum Disease Treatment San Antonio

Hello San Antonio residents! Your overall oral health depends not only on healthy teeth but also healthy gums. Proper oral hygiene helps keep both your teeth and gums in good shape.

When brushing, hold your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle with the bristle tips aimed at the line where the tooth and gum meet. The bristles of a soft toothbrush can clean the food particles in the pockets in front and in back of the tooth, but you need floss to clean between the teeth. Make sure you get the floss into the pocket between the teeth and scrape food particles up and out of the pocket.

Back to toothbrushing: if the toothbrush is not held at the correct angle, the bristles can’t get in the pockets to clean out the bacteria before it turns into enamel-damaging plaque. If plaque multiplies in the pockets around the teeth, the gum will start pulling away. Eventually, the pockets will become too deep for your toothbrush bristles to reach. Unfortunately, the tooth structure below the gumline is more susceptible to decay than the enamel above the gumline.

There is more than one way to damage your teeth – even if the visible parts of your teeth are cavity-free, gum disease can cause problems with the parts you can’t see.

I am Dr. William Stewart of William J. Stewart Jr. DDS. My staff and I promote preventative dentistry by working with our patients of all ages to establish essential oral hygiene habits.

If you haven’t had a check-up in a while, or are experiencing gum soreness or recession, call William J. Stewart Jr. DDS today at 210-428-6535 to schedule a thorough tooth and gum examination in San Antonio.
During your exam, Dr. Stewart will measure the depth of the pockets around each tooth. If you already have gum disease, we will help you restore gum health.

At William J. Stewart Jr. DDS in San Antonio, we provide full general and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry and dental crowns. If you have healthy teeth and gums but want to brighten your smile, ask us about teeth bleaching in San Antonio.
