Cosmetics dentistry houston tx | Royal DentalThe holiday season can leave you on an emotional high. It can also leave you feeling a bit depleted, only to find yourself facing those New Year’s resolutions. We’re here to help you make the most of your health and wellness by giving your smile the Royal treatment. Patients of our offices throughout Houston, and in Sugarland and other Texas cities know that we prioritize personal service. We also value options that will help you make the most of your dental care. Here are a few ways that your New Year can start off right.

Restorative Care

A toothache isn’t always a minor nuisance. It may begin that way, but that slight sensitivity when you eat a hot or cold food can grow into pain that doesn’t go away. We perform all levels of restorative care for patients of all ages. When you visit us for prompt care, your treatment plan may include a filling and nothing more. The longer ¬†you wait to see the dentist, though, the greater your chances of needing more extensive care, such as a crown or possibly a root canal. One thing that we want our patients to know is that, no matter how much repair they need, we will make sure they are comfortable. In addition to working with gentleness and clear communication, we offer sedation dentistry services to alleviate the anxiety associated with dental procedures.

Prevention

One of the greatest gifts one can get is a healthy smile. Royal Dental offers the full range of preventive dentistry to children, teens, and adults in the hopes that we can make a dent in the prevalence of common (and preventable!) dental problems like gum disease and cavities. The sooner a child can start seeing the dentist, the better he or she may feel about these visits. One reason is familiarity. The other reason is because, when routine care starts early in life, there is a greater chance of preventing cavities. That means no shots, which means no fear associated with dental care.

Cosmetics

Who doesn’t love to observe a gorgeous smile! We feel especially satisfied when that gorgeous smile is our own. Are you worried that the appearance of your teeth is aging you or having a negative impact on your facial aesthetic? Let’s talk! Royal Dental dentists perform treatments ranging from teeth whitening to porcelain veneers and more.

Royal treatment is waiting for you. Contact us for your New Year’s exam, cleaning, or cosmetic consultation.

Holiday Hoopla and your Smile

dental care houston tx | Royal DentalThe holidays are here, whether we are ready or not! Truth be told, most people are ready for nightly showings of Elf and the scents of the season that waft through the mall. The holidays mean gathering with friends and family. This time of year means gift giving and carol-singing (even if only in the shower). It may also mean that we have even more to do, and that can mean more than a little stress. Because the holiday hoopla can be stressful, even in a good way, there is a chance that your body may respond to the added pressure by putting extra pressure on your teeth.

A look at Bruxism

Bruxism is how we describe jaw clenching and teeth grinding. Sometimes, the cause of these habits is related to the oral structure itself. In many cases, though, it is a natural byproduct of stress. If we do not find ways to relieve stress consciously, the body will do so unconsciously, and we don’t want that. Bruxism may cause the joints of the jaw to become incredibly overworked, to the point of dysfunction. The force of clenching has also been known to crack teeth. No one wants their holiday grin to reveal the signs of stress!

Relieving Stress Consciously

The holiday season gives us the opportunity to become more mindful about how we care for our own needs. Rest and relaxation are not things that can wait. The more we have to do each day, the more rest we need. To relieve stress, consider what works for you, not what any expert says is the “right way” to unwind. If yoga is not appealing to you, trying to hop into a hot yoga practice could be counterproductive. Moving the body naturally works out stressors, but that movement is up to you. It could be on the treadmill or on the dance floor, but it needs to be something you truly enjoy.

Because bruxism is a nighttime activity, one recommendation that we support is avoiding caffeine after a certain hour. Even avid coffee drinkers may find that their sleep is disrupted when they do not limit consumption to the early part of the day.

We wish our family of patients all the joys of the holiday season!
