San Antonio & New Braunfels
Here at Excellent Dental Specialists in San Antonio, TX we want all of our patients to benefit from a dental office that has everything they need under one roof. For this reason, we offer most specialty services and experts here in our office, that way when we don’t have to refer you to some other office.
PeriodonticsThe health of your gums is just as important as the health of your teeth. Many people don’t realize how instrumental your gums are to your overall oral health. While gum disease is where it starts, tooth loss is where it can end.
The first sign that your gums need some extra attention is gum disease. Swollen, red gums that bleed when brushed or flossed can mean gum disease. We can help you to reverse gum disease and restore health to your mouth.
Scaling and root planing is a treatment option for those who have periodontitis. The idea is to remove the plaque that builds up below the gumline to reduce infection and inflammation.
When periodontitis has been allowed to run it’s course for many years the side effect is often the loss of healthy gum tissue. We can restore healthy gum tissue to your mouth with the help of a soft tissue graft.
We can help to encourage healthy gum growth through the pinhole surgical technique.
EndodonticsIf a tooth experiences serious decay, sometimes we can still save it with an endodontic procedure like a root canal.
Sometimes root canals don’t work out, so if you have a root canal that is bothering you, come to us and let us put it right!
Nothing can be more difficult than trying to get through a day when you are dead tired. Good sleep is important for a productive day, and now we can help you get the great sleep that you deserve with sleep dentistry.
TMJ disorder can result in serious aches and pains in your jaw.
ProsthodonticsWhen you need a high-quality dental restoration, we can help. From crowns to dentures, we have you covered!
Dental crowns are made to protect teeth that have experienced a high degree of damage and can no longer function correctly in your mouth. Our dental crowns are made to last and look just like your natural teeth!
Bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth.
With porcelain veneers, we can alter your smile in any way imaginable.
Inlays and onlays are a form of dental restoration known as indirect restorations. We take an impression of your tooth and have a restoration made to fit within it.
When tooth loss becomes, serious issue dentures can give you back the ability to eat and speak as you did when you had all your natural teeth.
Understanding diseases of the mouth are our business, and our oral pathology services give us a good insight into what’s going on in your mouth.
When placing dental implants in the upper molar areas of your mouth, we sometimes have to perform a sinus lift to give the patient enough bone to support the implant. This procedure moves the sinus cavity up, and away from the roof of the mouth.
When you’ve dealt with tooth loss for many years, bone loss is often an issue. If you are looking to have your missing teeth replaced with dental implants, a ridge augmentation may be needed to build the bone in your jaw up enough to support implants.
When you have severe periodontitis and scaling, and root planing fails to help, sometimes osseous surgery can help.
