Dental Cleanings & Exams
Our dentist and team offer dental cleanings and exams in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas, to help keep your mouth and smile healthy. This preventive treatment is one of the most important services provided at our offices, and it helps minimize your risk of developing cavities, gum disease, or other problems. Give us a call today to learn more about the benefits of dental cleanings and exams and schedule your appointment with Dr. Timothy Gardner.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic, yet important, preventive treatments that we provide at our office. Each time you visit our dental practice for a checkup, we will provide professional teeth cleaning and dental exams to help keep your mouth healthy. During your cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean your teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish your teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases
Additionally, we may utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your smile and make certain that you receive the dental care you need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
Our dentist and team provide dental sealants to help protect your teeth and smile. Sealants work by “sealing out” decay-causing bacteria and plaque to keep your teeth healthy and prevent cavities. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Timothy Gardner and find out if dental sealants in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas, are a good option for you!
Dental sealants are recommended mainly for children. They are frequently used for permanent molars as soon as they come in (usually between the ages of 6 and 12 years).

We will apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable visit to our practice.
Sealants are successful tool in preventing tooth decay. To learn more about dental sealants and how our team can keep your smile in good health, we welcome you to call or visit our office today.

Dr. Timothy Gardner may recommend fluoride treatments if your teeth are prone to developing cavities. This preventive treatment works to strengthen your tooth enamel and reduce your risk of tooth decay and related problems. To set up a consultation with our dentist and learn more about fluoride treatment in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas, call our office today!
Fluoride will strengthen your teeth and safeguard them from impending tooth decay. As you eat and drink throughout the day, bacteria, sugars, acids, and more constantly attack and deteriorate the enamel of your teeth. Fluoride works to remineralize tooth enamel, preventing tooth decay and cavities. In addition, fluoride can strengthen teeth as they develop to make sure they are strong and healthy. This makes fluoride very important for children as their teeth grow in.
Fluoride treatment is just one of the ways our team helps you keep your smile healthy for a lifetime. For more information about preventive dentistry and the benefits of fluoride, we welcome you to contact us today. We are eager to care for your smile!

Sleep Apnea Treatment
Our experienced dentist and team provide sleep apnea treatment to help you get the rest you need. Sleep apnea hinders your ability to breathe normally and naturally while asleep, and it can have a significant negative impact on your health and quality of life. We invite you to call our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Timothy Gardner and learn more about sleep apnea treatment in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas.
Sleep apnea must be diagnosed by a sleep physician, in which case we recommend that you talk to our dentist, as well as your physician if you suffer from the symptoms of sleep apnea. Common signs of sleep apnea include:
- Extreme drowsiness during the day
- Personality changes and irritability
- Difficulty staying asleep
- Waking up with a very dry or sore throat
- Frequent morning headaches
Sleep apnea treatment may depend on the severity of the condition. If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, then our dentist may recommend a simple oral appliance. The appliance works to treat obstructive sleep apnea by fitting over your teeth and keeping your airway open while you sleep. It can work by preventing the tongue from blocking the air passage or by holding your jaw in place, as to prevent airway blockages during sleep. For more information on sleep apnea treatment, we welcome you to call or visit our dental practice today. We are committed to helping you improve your health!
Our dentist uses digital X-rays to examine your teeth and smile.

Call us today to make an appointment with Dr. Timothy Gardner and learn more about digital X-rays in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas.

TMD treatment may include jaw and facial relaxation exercises, lifestyle changes, restorative dental treatments, a mouth guard or night guard, or jaw surgery. To learn more about TMJ treatment and schedule your consultation with our dentist, we encourage you to contact us today.
Dr. Timothy Gardner may recommend a tooth extraction if your tooth is too severely damaged to be restored. We offer sedation options to help you remain comfortable during this procedure, and we will work with you afterward to find a replacement for your tooth and restore your smile. Call us today to make an appointment with our dentist and learn more about tooth extractions in Conroe and Montgomery, Texas.
Several conditions may necessitate tooth extraction, such as the following:

- Crowding caused by too many teeth to properly fit in the mouth
Our dentist and team use great care and skill when performing a tooth extraction to ensure that your experience is as comfortable and painless as possible. We will also provide you with detailed post-treatment care instructions so that you can properly take care of your smile as it heals.
