General Dentistry at Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza

Getting high-quality general dentistry shouldn’t be hard work.

When you go for general dentistry at Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza, our services can include:

  • Dental x-rays that demonstrate the positioning of your teeth and roots
  • Examination of your existing fillings and dental work to look for damage
  • Teeth cleaning to remove built-up plaque and tartar
  • Restorative care, such as tooth fillings and sealants, extractions, and root canals, as needed

Take care of your oral health by seeing your dentist regularly. If you have problems with your teeth or you are dealing with pain, contact Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza and make an appointment.

Our Preventative Dentistry Services

Preventative dentistry refers to taking care of your teeth in order to prevent future dental decay and gum disease. In terms of preventative, general dentistry, you have some choices to consider. For instance, your dentist may recommend a nightguard if you are grinding your teeth at night, use fluoride treatments to help strengthen your teeth, or use sealants to make cleaning your teeth easier. Routine teeth cleanings and dental exams in Texas provide you with a custom preventative dentistry plan.

Do Sealants Help Protect Your Teeth?

Sealants are a plastic resin that is molded to your teeth, filling in deep grooves and protecting your teeth from damaging plaque. We use sealants to protect your teeth in a variety of situations. If you are an adult who has deep depressions or grooves in your teeth, but you don’t have decay, sealants can help protect the surface of your teeth. For children who are prone to cavities, sealants can dramatically reduce the number of cavities that form and even to prevent new cavities from forming altogether. Sealants can also be used on the teeth of children younger than six if their baby teeth are cavity prone. 

Treatment Options For People With Dental Anxiety

Sedation dentistry makes it possible for people with anxiety to get the dental treatment they need. If you are nervous about getting dental care, it’s especially important to get the care you need to keep your teeth healthy. Anxiety is common for many dental patients, and sedation can allow your dentist to give you the treatment you need while you stay calm during your visit. At Lovett Dental Meyerland Plaza, we strive to provide a stress-free environment for all of our patients. So if the thought of dental work gives you anxiety, let us know.

We have several treatment options when it comes to sedation dentistry to make you more comfortable. Nitrous oxide is an inhaled gas that can help you feel relaxed and ready for dental work. Medication in pill form can also decrease the symptoms of anxiety. If you need to have extensive dental work done, we can even use intravenous sedation to help you stay comfortable over the course of the procedure.
