General Dentistry in Laredo, TXDr. Matthew Davenport on general dentistry Read Transcript
Being a general dentist is something I find very rewarding. I'm able to treat a wide variety of patients that have a wide variety of needs. Whether it's a missing tooth to a broken tooth, a dental infection, gum disease, any sort of dental emergency, all those type of things that we're able to see here at our office and treat and help people that are in need of help.
At the same time it's also nice, because I'm able to work with the different types of specialists here in town and have that discretion to know when I need to send a patient that needs some specialized care. And so I enjoy that aspect of being able to work with all the dentists in town and also a wide variety of patients here in town, and I find that very rewarding.
Davenport Dental Group offers a variety of general dentistry services that can be used to help your entire family maintain healthy, happy smiles. Learn more about these options below.
How can the team at Davenport Dental Group help me prevent cavities?
If you are concerned about developing cavities, you are not alone. To help avoid tooth decay and enamel erosion, we offer a variety of preventive services that are great for patients of all ages. We will be happy to provide you with a dental sealant – a clear substance that is painted onto the surface of your teeth to act as a barrier against decay-causing bacteria. We also offer fluoride treatments and varnishes, designed to strengthen tooth enamel.
What are dental cleanings and exams like? Why are they important?
Cleanings and exams at Davenport Dental Group are easy and stress-free. We use digital X-rays, cavity detectors, and other technology to make sure your mouth is healthy and clean. You can learn more about how these visits work by checking out our Dental Cleanings and Exams page.
How can you help me or my child protect our teeth from sports injuries?
To prevent sports injuries, we offer athletic mouthguards. These mouthguards fit into your mouth and guard the teeth from being knocked out or broken during play. We can also create mouthguards to ease bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) and protect the teeth from the wear and tear associated with this condition.
What should I be feeding my family for healthy smiles?
To maintain a happy, healthy smile, we recommend eating a healthy, balanced diet. This diet will avoid sugary, processed foods and drinks and encourage the consumption of whole fruits and vegetables. If you would like more specific nutritional advice, please talk to our team. We would love to help you.
I have a dry mouth. What can I do?
If you are living with dry mouth, we can help you! Please schedule an examination so that we can get a good idea of what we are working with and what might be causing the problem. Often, we recommend a Biotene product for treatment. These products should ease your symptoms and allow you to go about your normal life.
