Routine Dental Checkups and Oral Health Screenings

Just as you visit the doctor for wellness checkups, at Wilson Dentistry, we recommend doing the same for your dental health.

Routine dental checkups are essential for maintaining oral health. Our dentist will examine your teeth to ensure there are no issues requiring intervention. During these visits, our dentist might offer guidance on enhancing your oral hygiene practices to help avoid common issues like gum disease and tooth decay.

Oral health screenings are part of routine dental checkups. Our dentist will visually and manually inspect your mouth to identify any conditions needing immediate attention. This is a risk assessment of your dental health, not involving diagnosis or treatment planning.

Professional Exams

At Wilson Dentistry, we offer two types of professional dental exams: a standard dental exam and a comprehensive dental exam.

The standard dental exam is a basic-level checkup examining your teeth and the condition of your mouth using a sickle probe and mirror. Sometimes, our dentist will use a motorized rotary brush for cleaning and removing noticeable plaque and tartar from the teeth surfaces.

Our comprehensive dental exam, while similar to the standard exam, includes more detailed assessments. This exam involves a tooth-by-tooth examination to detect plaque, discoloration, chips, and subtle damage to fillings and other tooth repairs. A periodontal exam assesses the color and firmness of the flesh around the teeth and gums, checking for recession or bleeding.

Bite evaluation is performed to identify the source of pain in the teeth and gums, with discomfort indicating potential toothache or gum disease. Our dentist will also conduct oral cancer screenings to detect cancer early for timely intervention.

An aesthetics exam evaluates the whiteness and straightness of your teeth, along with checking for plaque and tartar spots that could harbor dangerous bacteria. Additionally, X-rays are used to examine the bone structure of your jaw and the status of each tooth root, revealing potential damages not visible to the naked eye.

Dentistry for Kids in Katy, TX

At Wilson Dentistry, we specialize in dentistry for kids. Young children typically get their first teeth during the first six months of life, and most will lose their baby teeth between the ages of six and seven. Our pediatric dentists are specially trained to examine and manage the oral health of your child from infancy through their teenage years. They are skilled in caring for the gums, mouth, and teeth throughout the different stages of childhood.

Fluoride Treatments for Children

It is common for parents to encourage their children to brush their teeth and floss at least twice a day. These practices are essential in maintaining a healthy, cavity-free smile for your kids. However, additional preventative measures can enhance their oral health.

At Wilson Dentistry, we endorse and provide fluoride treatments for kids. These treatments use fluoride as a preventive measure against tooth decay. Fluoride treatments are effective in lowering the likelihood of decay in children. They also help in reversing early decay and aiding in the remineralization of teeth. The application of fluoride reinforces the tooth enamel, enhancing its resilience to the acidic impacts of foods.

Protective Dental Sealants for Kids

Dental sealants are a proactive measure to guard against tooth decay. These sealants protect the teeth for about three to five years, and with proper maintenance, they can last up to 10 years. Dental sealants are essentially plastic coatings that dentists apply to seal the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, making them less vulnerable to decay. This procedure is a safe and recommended protective measure for children, especially for those aged between six and 14 years.

Periodontal Care for Gum Health

A vital aspect of your oral health is the care of your gums, and one of the key services we provide is periodontal care. The term "periodontal" refers to everything around the tooth, indicating the focus of this type of care. Periodontal care is primarily aimed at preventing and treating periodontal disease, which affects the gums and the bone supporting the teeth. When you visit our clinic for periodontal maintenance, our dentist will focus on removing plaque. Plaque is a sticky film that accumulates on your teeth and is composed of food particles, saliva, and bacteria. Addressing it is crucial for preserving gum health and the overall well-being of your oral hygiene.

Custom Mouth Guards for Dental Protection

Alongside medical interventions for dental care, we offer a variety of custom mouth guards as oral appliances for different types of dental protection. Our dentists will recommend a custom-made mouth guard for various situations. These situations range from experiencing bruxism, characterized by teeth clenching or grinding, to participating in contact sports such as hockey, football, or boxing. They also include engaging in high-fall-risk activities like gymnastics, ice skating, or biking, as well as managing conditions like snoring during sleep, obstructive sleep apnea, or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. There are two main types of mouth guards. Sports Mouth Guards are designed to protect your teeth from injuries during sports activities, and night mouth guards are specifically for individuals who suffer from chronic snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.

Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder, manifests as intermittent breathing difficulties during sleep. This happens when the soft tissue in the throat collapses, obstructing airflow to the lungs. In cases of moderate obstructive sleep apnea, as diagnosed by a doctor, the solution often involves oral appliances. These devices are designed to prevent the tongue from obstructing the throat, thus facilitating smoother breathing.

Additionally, some appliances work by moving the lower jaw forward, ensuring the airway remains open while sleeping. Collaborating with a sleep specialist, our dentists can assess whether oral appliances are the appropriate treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
