5 Compelling Reasons To Consider Dental Sealants For Your Child

September 6, 2019

Filed under: Family dentistry — Ritchie Dental Group @ 8:47 am

kids dental sealants Marble Falls

The team at Richie Dental Group wants to keep their patients healthy. A key factor to good dental health is having sealants placed on back molars.

Why to Consider Dental Sealants

  1. Children without sealants have almost three times more tooth decay than children with sealants. (Centers For Disease Control)
  2. Your dental insurance plan may cover sealants For parents without dental insurance, sealants are worth the price. You will likely skip fillings and additional dental visits. Ritchie Dental Group recommends having sealants applied as early as possible.
  3. With proper care, sealants can last for many years. They protect your child during the years they are most likely to get cavities. By practicing proper oral hygiene and refraining from biting into hard objects, your child can maximize their lifespan.
  4. The application process is painless. Our team will clean, dry and then place the liquid sealant material to your child’s teeth. It hardens quickly. Your youngster won’t need to skip meals after the procedure.
  5. In some situations, we can place sealants over existing tooth decay to prevent further damage. Dr. Ritchie will determine if your child is a good candidate for this application.

Sealants, oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and dental cleanings are essential for pediatric dental health.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

At Ritchie Dental Group You

At Ritchie Dental Group,our patients are treated like family.

You know what puts a smile on my face? When I use advanced cosmetic dentistry to create a dazzling smile transformation for one of my patients.

Our team can guarantee you quality preventative, restorative, general, and cosmetic dental care.

Laser Dentistry

Let’s discuss laser dentistry. It may sound scary, but laser dentistry provides a fantastic alternative to drills. Many services performed with lasers don’t require patients to be medicated, allowing for quicker healing times.

Less Stress

Many patients become distressed while waiting for a shot of painkiller before a dental procedure. Laser dentistry allows for a more relaxed, less stressful dental visit. My patients also appreciate going home without a numb mouth or drool dripping down their chin.

People in need of oral surgery will experience less bleeding thanks to laser dentistry. Some of the procedures that are performed with lasers are:

  • infected root canal treatment,
  • gum and bone reshaping,
  • wisdom teeth extraction, and
  • teeth whitening.

Ritchie Dental Group serves the Marble Falls and Brady areas. We take pride in caring for our patients and we want them to have healthy, beautiful smiles. Our practice specializes in:

Get Your Teeth In Shape, Horseshoe Bay!

These days Horseshoe Bay residents are more conscious of their health than ever. Many of us are trying to stay active, eat a balanced diet, and better manage stress. When you feel healthy, attractive, and happy, you smile more often. You want your smile to compliment and enhance your physical and mental condition. Here at Ritchie Dental Group, we want to make sure that our patients have healthy, attractive teeth.

Eating right is a great step towards great oral health. A balanced diet that is low in sugar and high in nutrients will support dental health at every age. And, of course, water is always the beverage of choice for those who want healthy teeth.

Daily brushing and flossing are essential healthy habits for your mouth. Also, regular check-ups and cleanings with your Horseshoe Bay dentist are a must.

Another way to get those teeth looking beautiful is by undergoing some routine cosmetic dentistry procedures. If you want to close spaces between the teeth, improve your gumline, or repair chips or cracks in the teeth, then dental bonding, gum recontouring, crowns, or porcelain veneers might be what you need.

Ritchie Dental Group serves the Marble Falls and Brady areas. We offer a broad scope of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry, general dentistry, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening. Call us today.

Gum Disease And Tooth Loss

August 9, 2019

Filed under: Dental health — Ritchie Dental Group @ 8:02 am

Ritchie Dental Group serving Brady and Marble Falls can help you maintain your beautiful smile. As both general and cosmetic dentists, they can improve your oral health as well as brighten your smile.

Do you know that the most common cause of tooth loss among adults is gum disease? The good news is that gum disease is easy to treat if it is detected in the early stages.

Regular check-ups with your dentist are critical, but there are warning signs for gum disease that everyone should be looking for.

  1. Gums that bleed often
  2. Gums that are tender, swollen, or very red, or gums that have visible pus in between them when they are pushed
  3. A bite that changes suddenly so that your teeth don’t seem to fit together correctly
  4. Loose gums
  5. A bad taste in the mouth or chronic bad breath
  6. Loose or separating teeth

If you are experiencing these symptoms, talk to your dentist today. Since plaque causes gum disease, removing plaque through regular flossing is the key to healthy gums.

Avoid Sports Injuries: Protect Those Teeth!

August 2, 2019

Filed under: Emergency — Ritchie Dental Group @ 8:29 am

sports dentistry Marble Falls

At Ritchie Dental Group, we provide comprehensive full service dentistry for patients in Brady and Marble Falls. We want to raise awareness of the importance of athletic mouth protection. Patients should think of custom mouthguards as a critical part of their protective gear.

Did you know- over 5 million teeth are knocked out per year? Many of these dental traumas happen on the playing field or court. Each dislodged tooth involves several trips to the dentist and hundreds of dollars in restoration amounts. Not to mention pain!

Most parents require their children and teens to wear helmets when biking and shinguards while playing soccer. Parents should also emphasize the importance of mouth protection from your child’s very first 5-year-old T-ball game. And we all need to practice what we preach.

There are three main types of mouthguards:

  • ready-to-wear.  The stock mouth protectors are pre-formed and ready to wear. Unfortunately, they rarely fit well.
  • boil and bite. They are to be softened in water and then formed to the mouth (follow the manufacturer’s instructions).
  • custom-fitted.

We offer custom sports mouthguards,  that provide the highest level of protection and comfort. Mouth protectors that are comfortable are more likely to be worn by kids who complain about wearing a mouthguard.

Mouth protection is extremely essential for patients with braces or fixed bridge work. 

We offer a broad scope of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry, general dentistry, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening.

Dental Miracles – Seen and Unseen

July 19, 2019

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry — PM Blogger @ 8:23 am

white fillings La Jolla At Ritchie Dental Group, we provide comprehensive full service dentistry for patients in Brady and Marble Falls. Quality dental care and cosmetic dental procedures can be extremely visible -think porcelain veneers, dental crowns, and teeth whitening.

Today, however, let’s talk about some unseen procedures that can contribute to a healthy, dazzling smile. We will discuss 3 incredible cosmetic dental treatments: white fillings, invisible braces, and dental implants

White Fillings

We tailor tooth-colored fillings to blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color. These are made out of strong composite resins and porcelains. If you would like to get rid of the silver amalgam fillings in your teeth, white fillings are the solution. You can’t go back and get rid of those cavities, but you can make the silver disappear.

Invisible Braces

Straightening your teeth with orthodontia has become less of a metal mouth experience with the availability of invisible braces. You wear custom invisible braces either over teeth or behind the teeth. Invisible braces are effective and convenient. They have helped many people straighten their teeth for an improvement in their smile.

Dental Implants

Sure, the crown of a tooth implant is clearly visible. But the important part, which is the component that makes them so much stronger than a dental bridge, is anchored into your jawbone. A titanium post secures your restoration to offer the look, feel, and strength of a natural tooth. If you are missing one or more teeth, consider dental implants.

We offer a broad scope of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental services including sedation dentistry, general dentistry, porcelain veneers, and teeth whitening.
