Unique Treatments for Every Smile

When it comes to achieving your ideal smile, everybody has unique needs. At the San Antonio dental office of Bernard Rust, DDS, we cater our treatments to each patient’s needs, ensuring that you can be confident in the treatments you receive. In an effort to help patients receive the best possible treatment, we have made a guide to help you understand the various types of treatment you might need.

Preventive Treatment

For younger patients and those with healthy smiles, it is ideal to look into preventive dental treatment. Preventive dentistry encompasses dental treatments and hygiene habits done in the name of proactively treating decay and dental deteriorations.

This can be achieved through routine cleanings by our San Antonio professionals, as well as through positive changes in diet and at-home hygiene habits. Consider adding vegetables and sugar-free foods to your diet, as well as brushing and flossing with fluoride enriched toothpastes and floss. Sugar-free gum containing xylitol is also a great way for people of every age to avoid bacteria growth after meals, provided you are unable to brush in that moment.

Corrective Treatment

Corrective services such as Invisalign®-based orthodontic treatment can be essential in maintaining your oral health. Invisalign® allows you to straighten your teeth, which eliminates hard to reach spaces in crowded smiles and limits your susceptibility for decay. Straighter teeth allows you to not only keep your teeth cleaner, but provide you with better smile aesthetics.

If you suffer from gingivitis—swollen and reddened gums—then regular cleaning can support the return of your gums to full health. If you suffer from reversible conditions like gingivitis, crowded teeth, or greyed teeth, then these corrective treatments can easily get you on track to an ideally healthy and aesthetic smile.

Restorative Treatment

If you have already suffered damage to your smile due to physical trauma or decay, then restorative dental treatments can get you back on track to restoring function to your smile. For later stages of gum disease, as well as patients who have lost teeth, Dr. Rust offers several restorative services. 
If you have later stages of gum disease that cannot be cleared up by practicing regular oral hygiene, we offer deep cleanings, allowing us to remove the tartar from your gums, and giving you the chance to retain your remaining healthy tissue. Crowns, bridges, and dental implants are great ways of restoring function and aesthetic to your smile. If you have broken, decayed, or missing teeth, restorative dental treatments are available to help you achieve a functional bite, all while providing you with a beautiful smile.
