General Dentistry
Austin TX

For general dentistry in Austin TX, there’s only one place to go: Enamel Dentistry! We offer everything you need for a strong, healthy smile, including exams, x-rays, cleanings, and preventive care. Visiting the dentist’s office isn’t most people’s idea of a good time, so it may be tempting to skip out on your preventive dental care. You won’t feel that way when you visit Enamel! We make every visit positive, fun, and completely focused on you. 

The Importance of Exams, X-Rays, Cleanings, & Preventive Care

Why should you make a point to schedule regular general dentistry appointments at our Austin TX dental practice? Just as we visit the doctor for annual exams or bring our cars to the mechanic for routine maintenance, exams, x-rays, cleanings, & preventive care are the best way to prevent oral health concerns (like tooth decay and gum disease) from developing. 

By monitoring your oral health, we have the opportunity to nip any minor issues in the bud–before they can cause disease or tooth loss. It’s much easier to fix a cavity in the earlier stages before it becomes a root canal–and it’s less expensive, too! We’ll also discuss your oral hygiene and give you tips on how to make the most of it with proper brushing and flossing techniques. 

We offer a variety of general dentistry services and preventive care in Austin TX:

Six-month checkups

These routine exams keep your oral health on the right track. We’ll take x-rays and inspect every nook and cranny of your mouth, keeping an eye out for cavities, soft areas of enamel, gum inflammation, or any other abnormalities.

Pediatric dentistry

Early dental care is one of the best ways to give your child a head start on a healthy smile! These early appointments are mostly about getting them into the routine of dental care, but we also offer cleanings and x-rays on older children, pulpectomies, stainless steel crowns, and space maintainers. 

Teeth cleaning

Your toothbrush and floss can only reach so much! Professional dental cleanings get into all the places you can’t. We’ll remove plaque and tartar and give your pearly whites a polishing for a bright, beautiful smile. 

Fluoride treatments

Fluoride treatment prevents minor tooth decay from progressing into a cavity by remineralizing and strengthening damaged enamel.

Periodontal care

(for patients with gingivitis and gum disease)

Using specialized dental tools, we’ll do a deep cleaning to help remove plaque and bacteria from your teeth and gums. Then, we’ll smooth the roots of your to prevent the formation of bacteria pockets that can lead to tooth loss.

TMJ/TMD treatment

We offer a variety of TMJ/TMD treatment options based on your individual needs, including nightguards and other oral appliances, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories, and cortisol injections.  

Sleep apnea treatment

CPAP machines are the most common treatment for sleep apnea; if you have a mild case of obstructive sleep apnea, an oral appliance may be recommended. 

Dental Sealant

Dental sealants are a great way to protect molars from cavities, especially for patients who are at a higher risk of tooth decay. The sealants are made from a special type of dental resin that hardens to make a “shield” for your teeth. Plus, they offer protection against bacteria, acid, and food particles for up to 10 years!

Oral Cancer Screenings

We screen for oral cancer at every six-month exam. Oral cancer is often hard to detect until it’s reached the later stages, which is why early detection is so important for positive outcomes.
