For a Family Dentist, Pasadena, TX, Chooses Dr. Holmes and Dr. Revel

May 27, 2015

179150393No question about it—the school year is busy. But during the summer, the pace slows and there’s more time for fun and relaxation. There’s also more time to schedule those all-important dental checkups for you and your family. Dr. Erica Revel and Dr. Kimber Holmes at Pasadena Family Dentistry in Pasadena, TX, are dedicated to providing each member of your family with the oral health care they need. If you’re looking for the family dentist Pasadena trusts, then look no further than Pasadena’s own. We’d love to add your family to our family!

We may be professional dentists, but the truth is you are your family’s first dentist. The cliché “monkey see, monkey do,” has probably never been more applicable than when teaching your children to brush and floss their teeth. If your kids see you taking care of your teeth and gums every day, then they are more likely to do the same. In fact, daily brushing and flossing could be a new family activity to begin over the summer.

Pasadena Family Dentistry and You

In addition to your home hygiene routine, regular dental checkups are critical to your family’s oral health.  At a checkup, we’ll clean your teeth, appraise the health of your gums, examine for tooth decay and take x-rays when necessary to reveal any signs of decay or infection that might be hiding in spots not visible to the eye. In keeping with the recommendation of the American Dental Association, Dr. Holmes and Dr. Revel would like to see you and every member of your family twice each year for these checkups. With this regularity, we can more easily monitor for changes in your dental condition that may warrant treatment.

Beyond these regular dental checkups, family dentistry at Pasadena Family Dentistry includes other services that are important to your oral and general health. Gum disease therapy, for example, helps to arrest this infection of the gums and bone that support your teeth. Not only can the bacteria that cause gum disease spread in your mouth, they can also migrate to other bodily organs and systems, thereby causing overall health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, low birth weight and even dementia.

Children’s Dentistry in Pasadena, TX

February 15, 2015

488501205Everyone is familiar with Valentine’s Day and Presidents’ Day. But did you know that February is notable for another reason, too? The American Dental Association has designated all of February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. So, there couldn’t be a better time to make sure your children’s teeth are their healthiest. At Pasadena Family Dentistry, Dr. Kimber Holmes and Dr. Erica Revel practice children’s dentistry with an emphasis on education and prevention for the youngest citizens in Pasadena, TX, and beyond.

When your children are young, the best thing you can do to encourage proper oral health care is show them how you take care of your teeth and gums. Let them watch you brush and floss your teeth, and as they grow and their smiles develop, make brushing and flossing a family activity. There is truth in jest—monkey see, monkey do!

When you bring your children to the children’s dentist Pasadena trusts, we’ll reinforce the good habits you’ve established at home. At a dental checkup—and we’d like to see them every six months just as we do you—we’ll clean their teeth and remove plaque should there be any; we’ll examine their gums for early signs of periodontal disease; and we’ll visually check for signs of tooth decay and take digital x-rays when necessary to find hidden decay.

Fluoride Treatments and Dental Sealants

After we’ve cleaned your child’s teeth, we might apply a fluoride treatment. Fluoride is a mineral that attracts other minerals to strengthen teeth’s enamel, the first line of defense against cavities. We use a fluoride varnish, which is more effective than other fluoride treatments. Plus, it tastes good, and you no longer have to wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking.

Dental sealants are the next line of defense. Sealants are applied as a liquid on your child’s permanent molars and are then hardened with a curing light, thereby creating a barrier against decay-causing bacteria.

Schedule an Appointment Today

For the best in children’s dentistry, call Pasadena Family Dentistry. We proudly serve children and adults in Pasadena, TX, as well as from the surrounding communities of South Houston, La Porte, Deer Park, Channelview, Clear Lake, and beyond.

Dental Checkups: The Key to Good General Dentistry

Remedy the Effects of Bruxism with a Custom Nightguard

October 15, 2014

463781417Without even realizing, many people grind and clench their teeth. In fact, this tends to be an unconscious habit either during the day if we are stressed and anxious, or at night when we are asleep. Whenever it happens, teeth grinding and clenching, or bruxism, can be detrimental to your teeth, as well as to your bite and jaw. At Pasadena Family Dentistry in Pasadena, TX, Dr. Kimber Holmes and Dr. Erica Revel can prescribe an oral appliance, called a nightguard or splint, to prevent grinding and clenching.

The Symptoms and Consequences of Bruxism

Common symptoms of bruxism may include tooth pain, jaw soreness, headaches or an earache in the absence of infection. Some of the consequences of bruxism are visible, although others are not visibly apparent. So, if you are experiencing any of the symptoms of bruxism, it’s important to have a dentist evaluate your unique situation. The consequences of teeth grinding and clenching include:

  • Fine cracks or broken fillings in your molars
  • Worn and uneven front teeth
  • Teeth that are ground down and, therefore, consistently sensitive to hot and cold
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Headaches and jaw pain
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction

Your Custom-fitted Nightguard

Although there isn’t a cure for bruxism, Drs. Holmes and Revel can assess the degree of wear on your teeth, gums and jaw. Then, if appropriate, they will create a custom nightguard to protect your teeth from the damage caused by nighttime grinding and clenching. A nightguard will frequently alleviate many of the symptoms bruxism causes. Of course, if your teeth are damaged because of bruxism, or if TMJ has become an issue, then we will treat those conditions, too.

Contact Our Office Today

If you suspect or know that you are grinding and clenching your teeth, don’t hesitate in calling Pasadena Family Dentistry in Pasadena, TX. Drs. Holmes and Revel and their staff are waiting to help. Our office conveniently serves patients in South Houston, La Porte, Deer Park, Clear Lake and Channelview.
