Services from the Dentist Houston Trusts
Because a Great Smile Never Goes out of Style!
At Houston Uptown Dentists, we know patients want attractive smiles that last a lifetime. Therefore, Dr. Juarez, Dr. Lent, and Dr. Lindskog are dedicated to collaborating with patients to create functional and beautiful smiles that you’ll enjoy for years to come. We love building long-term relationships with patients in order to provide comprehensive aesthetic dentistry that addresses diverse dental needs. Our preventive services work to give you continued dental health, and our cosmetic dental care keeps you smiling brightly. We also offer a number of other service categories that help to ensure both your oral and overall well-being.
In addition, your unique perspective and personal treatment goals are key to the treatment planning process because no two smiles or patients are exactly alike, so no two treatment plans should be either.
Did you know that dentistry is designed to prevent dental problems from happening? That’s why the American Dental Association recommends dental checkups every six months. At these regularly scheduled visits, we’ll clean and examine your teeth, take annual x-rays and screen for oral cancer as well as TMJ dysfunction. Other preventive measures that your Houston dentist may suggest include a nightguard to mitigate the effects of teeth grinding and clenching as well as BPA-free dental sealants to protect your teeth from the bacteria and acid that lead to cavities.
With restorative care, our dentists can rebuild or replace damaged teeth. An infected tooth can be treated and preserved with root canal therapy; crowns and bridges, dentures and partials are excellent options for replacing missing teeth; and full-mouth reconstruction restores both the form and function of teeth with a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures.
To straighten your teeth and perfect your smile, Houston dentists offer two discreet systems of orthodontics. Invisalign uses clear plastic mouth trays to systematically move teeth into proper alignment. Six Month Smiles uses tooth colored brackets and clear wires to move teeth with the same mechanics as traditional metal braces. Treatment with either system can be hastened with Propel.
Your smile is comprised of both teeth and gums. If your gums aren’t healthy, then chances are your smile might be in jeopardy. The dentists in Uptown Houston offer periodontal therapy to ward off gingivitis and periodontitis, the early and later stages of gum disease. Not only will your mouth be healthier, but your body, too, because gum disease can worsen several illnesses and diseases.
If you feel tired everyday and your sleep partner complains about your loud snoring, then the problem may be sleep apnea, a medical condition that temporarily halts breathing while you sleep. Snoring is merely a sign of sleep apnea, but both snoring and sleep apnea can be dramatically alleviated with a customized oral appliance to keep your airway open.
Are you nervous about seeing your Uptown Houston dentist? No worries—we offer three methods of sedation dentistry: nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and intravenous sedation. Your Houston dentist will be able to recommend the level that is right for you.
To replace missing teeth, no tooth replacement option compares to dental implants. With a new tooth root embedded in your jawbone, you’ll never have to worry about a denture or partial that shifts when you eat or speak.
