Give Me Some Air: Advanced Dentistry in League City

Advanced Dentistry in League City How long have dentists been drilling teeth? Would you believe 9,000 years? In an ancient graveyard in Pakistan, archaeologists uncovered skulls containing teeth that had undergone drilling. The stone-age dentists removed decay using drills constructed of sharpened flint.

Though advanced dentistry in League City would not be possible without drilling, the high-pitched drone of a dental drill can make many patients’ hearts pound. However, there is another way cosmetic dentists can remove tooth decay.

Advanced Dentistry in League City

This treatment is known as air abrasion or drill-less dentistry. An air abrasion instrument removes material by spraying tiny aluminum oxide particles onto the tooth. The particles work like a sandblaster spraying away the decayed tooth structure.

The many merits of air abrasion make it a popular procedure for dentists and patients alike. Because air abrasion is typically painless, the necessity for anesthesia is reduced. The air abrasion instrument does not create vibrations or pressure.

Patients appreciate the fact that air abrasion instruments don’t create that whiny sound that rings in your ears and makes your palms sweat. Because of this, air abrasion can be a less daunting technique for young patients or those with dental anxiety. Air abrasion is frequently quicker and more exact than traditional drilling, leaving more of the healthy tooth intact.

Not Happy With Your Gums? Contouring in Friendswood Can Help

Not Happy With Your Gums? Ask About Contouring In Friendswood

Houston and Friendswood dental patients interested in a full smile makeover might want to consider gum contouring. This cosmetic dentistry procedure is helpful for those patients whose gums rest too low or too high on their teeth.

In such cases, it may seem that your teeth are too small or too large, and out of proportion with the mouth. Gum contouring may help with your appearance.

At David C. Montz DDS, PA & Associates, we perform gum contouring with laser dentistry. Laser dentistry is precise and painless – so much so, that many patients do not even need anesthesia. For most patients, it reduces the amount of bleeding and risk of infection, as well as anxiety.

Talk to us about gum contouring with laser dentistry. Dr. David C. Montz  has  been practicing in Friendswood since 1997. He says one of the most rewarding things about his work is seeing his Pearland, Alvin, and Manviel patients gain renewed confidence in themselves after undergoing simple cosmetic dentistry procedures.
