Dental Checkups & Cleanings
Every six months, it’s important to visit our office for a checkup and cleaning. We use the latest technology and techniques to thoroughly examine your mouth and make sure that no issues linger under the surface that will cause you any pain or discomfort in the future. Our goal is to stop oral health problems in their tracks so you and your loved ones can enjoy having a beautiful and natural smile for the rest of your life. Our dental cleanings will remove plaque, tartar, food debris, and bacteria from your mouth, leaving your smile refreshed and clean.
When you move your jaw, do you experience popping, clicking, or intense discomfort? The hinges that allow you to open and close your mouth are called the temporomandibular joints, or TMJ. When these aren’t properly functioning due to bite problems, arthritis, or damage, it can make it difficult to complete daily tasks such as eating and speaking. If you’re experiencing common symptoms of temporomandibular joint disorder, including soreness, chronic headaches, and jaw stiffness, we’re able to help provide you with relief. Dr. Earnest offers therapy options to rebalance your bite and stop your discomfort.
Sleep Apnea Therapy
Every night, do you snore so loud that you wake your partner up? This is a common sign of sleep apnea, a condition that limits the flow of oxygen to your body as you sleep, and prevents you from reaching a state of deep rest. Sleeping plays a vital role in your body’s ability to fight off illnesses and repair itself, so you feel energized and ready to take on the next day. Patients who suffer from sleep apnea suffer from declining health and an increased risk of several conditions such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, and strokes. If you’ve received a diagnosis for your condition, be sure to visit us for a sleep apnea therapy consultation. Using a retainer-like device, we can adjust your mouth to open up your airways so you can get the rest you deserve.
Children’s mouths change at every stage of their development, which is why it’s important that they see a dentist who is familiar with what types of unique issues they face. Fortunately, our team at Comal Dental has years of experience treating growing smiles and providing children with the knowledge, tools, and treatments they need to maintain healthy and beautiful grins as adults. For children who are afraid of the dentist, we also offer sedation services to help them feel calm and relaxed during their appointment.
Dental emergencies can happen at any moment, which is why it’s important to be prepared by having your emergency family dentist’s contact information readily available. When you contact our office and let us know what situation you face, we’ll schedule your appointment for as soon as possible. Our team will work quickly and efficiently to ease your pain and restore your oral health so you can enjoy a stress-free rest of the day.
