Although most of us are particular about brushing our teeth twice a day and flossing them once a day, there are, understandably, times when we have a lapse in our oral hygiene. When this happens, our teeth become vulnerable to bacterial infection and cause gum disease, dental caries, and other oral conditions. The American Dental Association has recommended a routine dental checkup visit twice a year. At Advanced Dental Associates, our aim is to ensure that you have strong and beautiful teeth all year long. We offer a range of comprehensive dental services in San Antonio, TX. These services include family dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, and dental implants to improve your smile and the overall quality of your life.

Family and General Dentistry
At Advanced Dental Associates, we provide general dentistry to people of all ages, from toddlers to grandparents. Family dentistry is one of the most rewarding aspects of working as dentists since it allows us to watch our patients grow up in practice. With family dentistry, you can benefit from dental services that prevent and treat common teeth and mouth issues.
We specialize in different areas of dentistry, including restorative and cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, and dental prosthetics, and offer these dental services in a comfortable and stress-free environment. We can schedule a visit for all your family members on the same day so that you do not have to wait hours or come in another day to check on another family member.
Restorative dentistry involves diagnosing, repairing, and restoring decayed, damaged, or lost teeth. At Advanced Dental Associates, we will evaluate the health of your teeth and gums and diagnose any problems with them. We will then make an appropriate treatment plan to fix problematic teeth. Restorative dentistry involves non-invasive and painless treatment options, many of which can be completed in a single day with a very short or no recovery period required. Some of the most common dental restoration options include direct fillings, inlays and onlays, dental crowns, dental bridges, veneers, and dentures.
If your teeth are discolored, misshapen, worn down, gaps between them, or chipped enamel, cosmetic dentistry at Advanced Dental Associates can fix or hide these defects and restore your pearly white smile. Unlike what most people believe, cosmetic dentistry does not just improve the aesthetics of your teeth, but it is also essential to maintaining your oral health.
For example, cosmetic dentistry procedures like bonding and veneers can protect a vulnerable tooth from further damage and prevent sensitivity. Clear retainers can bring your teeth into alignment, making them easier to chew with and clean.
Many people are afraid to go to the dentist because they fear dental treatments are painful. At Advanced Dental Associates, we offer sedation dentistry, which can prevent pain and alleviate your anxiety during dental procedures. Sedation dentistry is also known as sleep dentistry, although not all options will put you to sleep. Instead, most of them will numb the surgical site and calm your anxiety.
Sedation dentistry is a good option for young children afraid of being in a dental chair, people who fidget a lot, have a bad gag reflex or a very low pain threshold, and those who need to undergo more invasive dental surgeries.
Implants are the most effective and comfortable tooth restoration devices. They mimic the appearance and function of your natural teeth almost exactly. Dental implants are typically made of titanium or ceramic zirconia. They can be placed into your jawbone to create a solid base for a dental crown.
The procedure is minimally-invasive and pain-free and serves to replace a missing tooth and maintain the bone health of your jaw. A dental implant may be your ideal option if you have lost one or more teeth.
