Frequently Asked Questions

Your dentist in Humble, TX looks forward to seeing you!

dentist appointment in humble tx | humble dentistrySometimes there are changes to your insurance plan or your dental benefits. Other times, especially if you have not been to the dentist in a while, we may need to update your information electronically. You may also have questions for the dentist. Additionally, if the dentist or hygienist finishes the appointment before yours early, you may be able to start your dental treatment ahead of schedule. This gives you more time for your day. You can also download forms from our website to save yourself even more time.

We do request you arrive 10-15 minutes early to your appointment for these reasons. This is especially important for new patients. At Humble Dentistry, your Humble, TX dentist likes us to take a full history. We want to know about your medical history, as well.

Additionally, we like to take the time to catch up with our patients and learn what’s new with you! At Humble Dentistry, we treat our patients like family.

If you have not scheduled an appointment in a while, or if you have any questions, we encourage you to contact your dentist in Humble, TX today. We look forward to serving all your dental needs.

The foods and drinks you indulge in play an important role in your oral health and physical wellness. Our dentist recommends a healthy diet, brushing, flossing, and preventive dentistry in Humble, TX, for best results.

While some foods are obviously bad for your teeth—sugary sweets and yummy candies—it may surprise you to learn that fruit juices also contribute to cavities, enamel erosion, and tooth stains. To lower your risks for dental decay, we recommend reducing your intake of the following drinks, which are highly acidic and sugary:

  • Fruit juices
  • Sodas
  • Sports drinks
  • Gatorade

It’s equally important to reduce sugary snacks like cookies and candies.

If you do indulge, it’s crucial to brush, floss, and rinse away the debris. If sugar and acids remain on teeth, it breaks down your enamel, which promotes tooth decay.

Alternatives to sugary snacks include nuts, seeds, and carrot sticks.

To reduce stains on your teeth, avoid wines, colorful sauces, and tobacco in all forms.

Remember, healthy foods and drinks are better for your teeth and your body's health.

Good oral hygiene depends on the removal of plaque from the teeth. Plaque is the sticky yellow film that harbors bacteria and contributes to inflammation, gum disease, and tooth decay.

An electric toothbrush can be especially helpful for those with braces or other oral appliances, those who struggle with manual dexterity, or those that have very hard to reach places. We would love it if all of our patients used an electric toothbrush, which is why we have both Sonicare and Oral-B toothbrushes available in the office.

What Research Says

Don’t just take our word for it though, our recommendation is based on the best available research. In 2014, the Cochrane Group conducted a systematic review comparing manual and powered toothbrushes. They found that using an electric toothbrush resulted in a 21% reduction in plaque after 3 months of use. It also resulted in an 11% reduction in gingivitis after three months as well. That may not sound like a lot, but better removal of plaque will contribute to a healthier mouth and lower the risk for developing gum disease and tooth decay.

Pain Free Dentistry

Even complex procedures such as extractions, root canals, and dental implant placement are more comfortable than ever thanks to the latest information regarding anesthetic techniques, improved medications, and information about how different people react when anesthetized. Every patient is different, and we will ensure you get the proper amount of anesthetic.

Special products like topical anesthetic and reversal medications like OraVerse make your experience more comfortable and convenient. Injections are easier than ever because we now have the capability to numb the area before the injection, so you can expect minimal discomfort.

Reversing the effects of anesthetic is an added convenience we offer. Every patient metabolizes anesthetic differently and staying completely numb for hours after your procedure can be annoying and inconvenient – especially if you are hungry! By reversing the effects of your anesthetic, you can feel like yourself again faster.
You are always in control of your own appointment here at Humble Dentistry. If you ever feel uncomfortable during a procedure, let us know and we will take action right away. We want you to relax and enjoy worry-free dentistry while you are with us.
