Prioritizing Our Patients' Health & Safety 

Dear patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
 
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
 
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.
 
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
 
• If you are sick or concerned you might be sick, please cancel your appointment. You will not be penalized in any way for the cancellation, even at the last minute.
 
• Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. When you get to the office, you are asked to remain in your car and call our office number 972-412-5064. A staff member will come out to you and you will be asked those same screening questions again and have your temperature taken before entering the office.
 
• If you are a new patient, we would really appreciate you using the online patient portal to fill out paperwork prior to your appointment.
 
• We will ask you to immediately wash your hands with soap and water when you enter the office.
 
• You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect. There will also be very few chairs present to avoid crowds in the waiting room. Computers will have disposable covers and counter tops, door handles, waiting room chairs and surfaces will be disinfected with increased frequency.
 
• Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. We will also ask that only the patient, and in necessary cases a legal guardian, enter the office. Older children and adults are requested to experience their appointments alone while family members remain in the car and/or waiting room.
 
• We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
 
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 972-412-5064 or visit our website at www.mymouthdental.com.  
 
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Ramsey, Dr. Montoya and Team

Restorative Dentistry

A restorative dentist primarily treats issues affecting the health, function, and comfort of your smile, such as damaged or lost teeth

Restorative dentists also have the knowledge and tools to provide lifelike tooth replacement solutions that fit seamlessly.

Improving the Health and Aesthetics of Your Smile

Restore Function and Comfort

Unhealthy teeth, gums, or bone tissue can be extremely uncomfortable. If left untreated, these conditions can also make it difficult to chew and enunciate. A restorative dentist can treat your smile from top to bottom to help you alleviate discomfort and restore proper function

The Right Fit

Restorative dentists use sophisticated tools to accurately measure the dimensions of your smile and deliver restorations that fit precisely

Boost Your Self-Confidence

Many oral health issues can also affect the look of your smile. By treating your oral health concerns, a restorative dentist can also help your smile look its best.

.

Dental Crowns Correct Multiple Issues at Once

Dental crowns can be used to correct functional and cosmetic issues that are affecting your smile. 

Tools Used by Restorative Dentists

Many restorative dentists use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose your condition, plan the appropriate treatment, and deliver natural-looking results. Some tools include: 

  • Digital X-rays and Cone Beam Scanners: Restorative dentists often use digital X-rays to quickly and safely diagnose issues such as cavities or fractured teeth. Some offices are equipped with cone beam computed tomography scanners that visualize your biostructures in three dimensions and allow your dentist to more accurately perform your treatment. 
     
  • Detailed Impressions: If you need a restoration such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture, your dentist may collect traditional putty impressions or digital impressions to record the exact dimensions of your smile. 
     
  • High-Quality Materials: When fabricating restorations, dentists use tried and true materials such as gold and porcelain as well as incredibly durable and lifelike materials such as zirconia.

Insurance Coverage Often Applies to Restorative Treatment

Because restorative dentistry procedures are intended to improve the health of your smile, most treatments are considered medically necessary and are at least partially covered by insurance providers. Dental implants and some premium restorative materials will usually require paying out-of-pocket.

Talk to your dentist about maximizing your benefits or arranging financing.
