General & Preventive Dentist in The Woodlands

The old saw that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure has probably never been more applicable that in dentistry. Woodlands dentist Dr. Johnny Taylor is dedicated to helping patients prevent dental problems, so the time and trouble of a cure hopefully won’t be necessary.

With this in mind, we emphasize the important of good oral hygiene, which necessitates a partnership between you, Dr. Taylor and his skillful dental hygienists and assistants. A clean mouth does more than boost your confidence. Did you know it can help keep your body and mind healthy, too? It's true! Research concludes that keeping your teeth free of decay and keeping gum disease at bay can lower your risk for heart disease as well as memory loss.

From routine dental hygiene visits to sealants for those hard to reach back teeth, our practice offers comprehensive preventive and general dentistry for the whole family. Dr. Taylor knows that the source of a beautiful, healthy you, is a strong, clean smile. Our full menu of preventive treatments reflects our commitment to your oral health.

Periodontal Therapy from the Woodlands Dentist

When you come to the dental practice of Dr. Taylor, the dentist Woodlands residents count on for comprehensive general dentistry, you can be sure you’ll be set up with a treatment plan that services your specific needs. For example, if we discover any of the signs of gum disease during one of your biannual checkups (swelling, redness, bleeding, enlarged gum pockets, or loose teeth) then we have the gum disease treatment you need to reverse the effects of these symptoms and stop the disease’s advance. We offer in-office non-surgical periodontal therapy, as well as topical antibiotic treatment. If the gum disease treatment we offer is not appropriate for your case, then the Woodlands dentist will refer you to a trusted periodontist for advanced treatment.

Nightguards and Mouthguards

For patients who grind and clench their teeth, a condition known in dentistry as bruxism, the consequences can be worn teeth as well as jaw pain from the additional motion and pressure. To protect teeth, Dr. Taylor can prescribe a nightguard. Worn at night while you sleep, a nightguard is a comfortable oral device that prevents grinding and clenching.

For the athletes in your family, Dr. Taylor can have a custom mouthguard fabricated. A mouthguard fits in the mouth and is designed to protect teeth, gums, tongue, lips and cheeks from possible harm during sports play. Recent research shows that a mouthguard can also lessen the effects and severity of a concussion.

Services from your Woodland Dentist

When you have a family to take care of, time can be in short supply. That’s why we provide a wide variety of dental services that can help smiles of all ages, eliminating tedious visits to other offices. From routine hygiene to revitalizing restorative care to Invisalign treatment and much more, Dr. Taylor, the dentist Woodlands residents trust, and his team have the skills and dedication needed to not only meet, but exceed your expectations.

At the foundation of our services is your twice-yearly dental checkup. These appointments serve as the baseline from which we develop a treatment plan to help you maintain your best oral health. Beyond cleaning and polishing your teeth, one of our skilled hygienists will also examine your teeth and gums, looking for signs of decay or gum disease. Periodically, we will also take digital x-rays to find any concerns that are not visible to the naked eye, such as a cavity between two teeth or infection developing deep inside a tooth. Another very important component of a checkup is an oral cancer screening. This disease is highly treatable and curable when found early.

Similarly, other oral and dental health concerns are relatively easy to treat when found sooner rather than later. Some of the restorative treatments Dr. Taylor offers to repair your smile include:

  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • Dentures and Partials
  • All Porcelain Crown, Inlays and Onlays
  • Root Canals
  • CEREC one-visit crowns and other restorations
  • Bridges
  • Dental Implants

For those times when you want to enhance your smile, we have a number of cosmetic treatments. One of the most cost-effective is teeth whitening with Zoom! Whitening. In just one appointment, you can have a smile that is several shades brighter and whiter.

Have a chipped or slightly cracked tooth? Cosmetic bonding uses tooth-colored composite resin material to rebuild and reshape your tooth. If you have several teeth that are chipped, cracked, misshaped or slightly misaligned, then consider porcelain veneers. These coverings are adhesively bonded to your teeth, so you can present an aesthetically pleasing smile to family, friends and colleagues.

We proudly serve patients in Conroe, The Woodlands, Spring, Houston and surrounding communities. Call our office in The Woodlands, TX today to schedule an appointment for yourself or another member of your family.
