Prevention is a key part of maintaining proper oral health. We recommend that you visit McKinney dentist Dr. Chawala approximately every six months for a routine exam and cleaning. We also provide other preventive services to help ensure your pearly whites stay healthy all year round.
Our preventive services include:
- Bi-annual Exams & Cleanings
- Oral Cancer Screenings
- Fluoride Treatments
- Protective Sealants
- Nightguards & Athletic Mouthguards
- Periodontal (Gum) Care
Sometimes our teeth need a little extra care to function properly and look great. When that happens, visit Apollo Dental for the personalized care you need and deserve.
If we detect decay during your exam, we may recommend that we remove the decay and place a filling. We use composite (tooth-colored) materials to create a natural-looking filling. Composite fillings are also smaller and leave behind more of your healthy tooth structure.
Crowns & Bridges
Also known as “caps,” dental crowns are used to cover cracks in teeth, or in conjunction with dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns protect teeth from damage and add strength to weakened teeth. Bridges are used along with crowns to close gaps created by one or more missing teeth. A false tooth on the dental bridge essentially “bridges” the gap and gives you a complete smile again.
Sometimes our natural teeth fail us, no matter what kind of care we provide. If this has happened to you and you are missing most or all of your natural teeth, dentures could give you back your smile. Today’s dentures are more comfortable than ever before, and we offer dental financing to help you get new teeth at a cost that works for you.
Patients missing one or more teeth can get back a smile they love showing off thanks to dental implants. When used in conjunction with other restorations (such as crowns, bridges, or dentures), implants can restore full function and beauty to your smile. Implant dentist Dr. Chawala is trained in both the placement and restoration of dental implants, so call today to schedule a consultation.
Root Canal Therapy
Severe pain in a tooth, or in the gums directly above a tooth, could indicate an infection that requires prompt attention. One of the best ways to remove the infection and save your natural tooth is with a root canal. The term typically stirs up fears of pain, but rest assured that your comfort is a top priority for us. We’ll walk you through the procedure and provide sedation to help you relax while we work.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
When wisdom teeth, your third set of molars, come in, there often isn’t enough room for them to erupt properly. This can cause crowding, shifting of other permanent teeth, and even infections due to the teeth not fully erupting. If Dr. Chawala notices that your wisdom teeth are coming in and there isn’t proper space, he may recommend wisdom tooth removal. He’ll walk you through the procedure, answer any questions, and provide you with sedation to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
