Dentist FAQ for Houston

How often should I see a dentist?

For people with healthy gums and teeth: 1 visit every 6 months is a great routine to professionally remove tartar, calculus, and staining, and to have the doctor check the health of everything in your mouth. For those with gum recession, bleeding, or deeper pocketing, maintenance is key! Seeing your hygienist every 3-4 months will ensure the healthy status of your mouth for years to come.

What can I do about sensitive teeth?

Sensitive teeth may be rooted in a number of reasons: grinding, clenching, root exposure, enamel deterioration, moving teeth via orthodontics, etc. Our top tips for keeping sensitivity at bay are to: wear a night guard while sleeping to protect the teeth, brush with Sensodyne rapid relief, use a tooth brush with soft bristles, and rinse with Sensodyne Mouthwash – alcohol free.

What should I expect on my first appointment as a new patient?

As a new patient to our office we encourage you to bring your prefilled out new patient paperwork, have your dental insurance card and ID with you. Once we get you back we’ll work on data entry that includes cavity detecting x-rays, intra-oral photos, and checking the status of your gums. Our hygienist and Dr. Paul will determine the best dental cleaning needed for you and any pertinent dental treatment should you need further care.

Where is your office located?

We are in a two-story white building called Woodlake Park on the corner of Ella Lee and Tanglewilde; in the Westchase district off Houston. Our office is on the second floor of the South tower. Physical address is 2500 Tanglewilde suite #498 Houston, TX 77063.

How much does it Cost?

High prices are the major factor preventing many people from getting regular dental checkups. A recent survey found that 44 percent of people were not visiting the dentist because they don’t have dental insurance. “The truth is that if you take good care of your teeth and mouth, yearly dental visits won’t cost a ton of money,” says John Dodes, DDS, a dentist in Forest Hills, N.Y., and author of Healthy Teeth: A User’s Guide. “Easy additions to your routine, like flossing and rinsing with a therapeutic mouthwash like Listerine, can help get and keep your mouth healthy.”

We strive for transparency and clarity and whether you are utilizing dental insurance or paying out-of-pocket we will always present the cost up-front before any procedures are done.

What type of toothbrush and toothpaste should I use?

Soft bristles, and electric toothbrushes are ideal. For toothpaste we like the Arm & Hammer a line of toothpaste do to the baking soda component or Sensodyne toothpaste for those with sensitive teeth.

What should I do about bleeding gums?

Bleeding and inflamed gums (gingivitis or periodontitis) left untreated can lead to serious consequences. Both gingivitis and periodontitis have been shown to raise your risk of things like diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, pneumonia, and cancer. If diagnosis happens early, and if treatment is prompt and proper, gingivitis can be successfully reversed. Proper home care and professional dental cleanings can help eliminate much of the bacteria in your mouth.

Is my insurance accepted?

Dr. Paul will file claims and accept payment for patients who have a dental PPO insurance plan. To find out more about your specific plan, call our office at 713-977-1010.
