Why should you see a dentist in Laredo, TX? Then answer often boils down to three things:

  • Pain
  • Embarrassment
  • Prevention

Every single day, we help people resolve these problems so they can smile freely again.

Today, we’ll spend a few minutes sharing common reasons you should see a dentist. If any of these describe you, give Davenport Dental Group a call at 956-242-6745 for our Junction Drive office or 956-517-2695 for Winfield.

I’m in pain.

There are many types of oral pain and discomfort.

  • Toothaches from decay or infection
  • Broken teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Abscesses
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold
  • Sores on the inside of your mouth or on your tongue
  • Gum sensitivity, swelling, and bleeding
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Jaw pain
  • Dry mouth

Dr. Davenport, Dr. Matt, and Dr. Vallone have solved every one of these types of pain, and more. When you tell us you’re in pain, we take it seriously. We understand that dental pain usually means something is wrong and must be fixed. That’s also why we offer same-day and next-day dental emergency appointments when needed.

When you arrive at our office, we won’t start lecturing you. We’ll confirm what your problem is and get to work helping you out. For example, we may take digital X-rays that give us a very clear picture of what’s going on, and we’ll perform a thorough exam to give you an answer. Many people find our expertly administered anesthesia and sedation helpful if they need a treatment in our office, like a root canal or extraction.

I’m embarrassed about my smile.

Your embarrassment may be due to structural or functional issues, like decayed teeth or missing teeth. They could also be from flaws in your smile that make you less than happy to grin. That could include stained teeth or crooked teeth.

Regardless of the reason, our dentists are here to listen to your concerns. We have cosmetic and restorative dental solutions that will work for you. No case is too overwhelming. And we won’t judge you, lecture you, or talk you into something you don’t want done. Our caring attitude is just one of the reasons we’ve gotten the Laredo Morning Times’ Reader’s Choice Award for several years.

No one should have to live with a smile they are not proud of. No one should have to wonder whether they should smile with their teeth showing or hide their mouth during a conversation. No one should have to wonder what the person they’re talking to is thinking about their mouth. Stop the worries and get on in to Davenport Dental Group! You may be surprised at how easy, affordable, comfortable, and quickly we can give you a confident smile.

I need preventive dental care.

Preventive dental care can prevent both dental pain and embarrassment. Generally, it includes six-month cleanings and exams. This is enough time for us to keep ahead of any problems and identify existing ones before they cause pain or become very costly or time-consuming to fix.

These routine trips to the dentist are also when we look for signs of oral cancer and gum disease. Early treatment for both conditions means a better chance of eliminating the problem quickly. It also means peace of mind for you.

So, why should you see a dentist in Laredo? We hope the answer is simple. If it’s been more than six months since your last dental exam, if you’re experiencing discomfort, or if your smile’s causing embarrassment, the time is now!
