woman learning about specialty dentistryHaving a diligent brushing, flossing, and dental care routine can help you maintain a beautiful, pain-free smile.

Lovett Dental West U offers specialty dental services that go beyond general dentistry. If you are experiencing oral health problems due to tooth decay, damaged teeth, alignment, or gum disease, we help. Our specialty services cover a wide range of procedures, from root canals to dental implants. No matter what your issue is, Lovett Dental West U’s convenient hours and professional team can help you get the care you need.

What to Expect from a Specialty Dentist

Regular general dentistry is the best way to maintain a healthy smile. However, even with regular teeth cleanings and examinations, issues can still arise. When this happens, it may be necessary to discuss with your dentist at Lovett Dental West U what dental specialist services are available and would work best for your situation. There are numerous options, and specially trained dentists and hygienists handle each.

Our specialty dentists have graduate-level dental education. They have extensive experience in their specialties, such as orthodontics (alignment), periodontics (gum disease), or endodontics (treating issues with the tooth root). These issues often require surgical interventions or complex treatments. If you are experiencing severe tooth pain or numbness, contact Lovett Dental West U immediately. A dental implant may be the solution to your problem.

Our dental implants involve administering anesthetic before inserting a titanium post securely into the jawbone. Once the post is placed, a crown or replacement tooth is subsequently attached. A dental implant is a more permanent and sturdy solution designed to fill in gaps between teeth or repair/replace a decayed or cracked tooth. Implants can cover a range of issues, both cosmetic and restorative. While the procedure takes more time than a regular cavity filling, dental implants can last decades and are virtually undetectable from your other teeth.

Periodontics and Orthodontics at Lovett Dental West U

Two of the most common specialty dental areas are periodontics and orthodontics. Good oral health involves more than brushing and flossing. Houstonians need to make sure their gums are healthy as well. Plaque and tartar build-up can lead to inflammations and infections that damage the tissue in your mouth around your teeth. This can lead to tooth loss. The periodontal treatment uses the latest techniques we use at Lovett West U can help you prevent, diagnose, and treat gum disease.

Lovett Dental West U also offers orthodontics services. This specialty deals with alignment issues like gaps and crowding. Fixing gaps usually involves braces. While many people associate braces with children and adolescents, it’s become more common for adults to use them to address issues they aren’t satisfied with. Braces can realign teeth that may have become crooked over the years.
