Add in his highly educated and gentle staff, many of whom have been with him for more than a decade, and you have a rare dental office—one that offers comprehensive dental services, and patient-focused care.
Dr. Stan’s ability to keep almost all dental procedures in house allows for added convenience and cost savings. It also ensures you’ll receive the highest quality treatment with a Rockwall dentist you trust.
Lowrance Dental offers the following General Dentistry services:
DENTAL COMPOSITES – (White Fillings) A mix of dental glass with plastic resin offers both health and aesthetic advantages over silver amalgams. These advanced materials provide a superior match to natural tooth shades, making a White Filling appear nearly identical to your actual tooth. White Fillings also offer superior bonding and help protect teeth from radical temperature changes.
CROWNS – A dental crown may be recommended for a variety of reasons, as a way to protect a weak tooth, to cover a root canal or dental implant, or as a restoration of a worn down or broken tooth. Recent technological advances offer patients many choices in materials. Dr. Stan can assist you in selecting exactly the right crown for your situation. Listed below you’ll find two exciting state-of-the-art options:
- All Porcelain Crowns – These attractive crowns simulate the translucency of your own teeth resulting in a beautiful, natural appearance. They are suitable for use in cosmetic dentistry and will brighten and transform your smile.
- BruxZir® Crowns – Ideal for patients who grind their teeth. Made from the highest quality zirconia, this crown is virtually chip-proof, making it the perfect choice for bruxers. Its smooth surface also helps resist the accumulation of plaque.
All crowns supplied by Dr. Stan’s office are made in the USA and approved by the ADA. Unlike many dental offices, Lowrance Dental never uses crowns made in Mexico or China. To ensure your safety, all crowns are custom-made by a locally owned dental lab with a 30 year history of quality and reliability.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY – Today’s root canal procedures deliver outstanding results and are great way to save a threatened tooth. Using modern endodontic techniques, Dr. Stan’s gentle touch will ensure you’re comfortable and at ease throughout the process. Following the procedure, Dr. Stan will fit your tooth with a protective crown.
BRIDGES & DENTURES – Besides affecting a person’s self-confidence, missing teeth can create health problems. People who are missing teeth are more prone to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, chewing difficulties, and bone loss. It extreme cases, missing teeth can make the jaw shrink and facial structure collapse, leaving a person with an aged, hollow-checked appearance. To prevent such consequences, Dr. Stan may recommend a bridge or dentures.
A bridge (sometimes known as a fixed partial denture), can be used to replace a missing tooth, or if necessary, several teeth. A bridge can help you chew properly and keep your remaining teeth from shifting out of their proper positions. Dental bridges can be supported by precision attachments or by dental implants.
Dentures or partial dentures may be the proper choice if there is significant tooth loss. By eliminating denture slippage, both precision attachments and implants deliver the most resilient, comfortable fit and natural appearance. Dr. Stan can help you decide which method will be the best for you.
DENTAL EXTRACTIONS – Occasionally a tooth cannot be saved. If this is the case, a dental extraction may be recommended. To ensure your comfort throughout the procedure, Dr. Stan offers nitrous oxide, and both oral and IV sedation.
SNORE GUARD – Not only is snoring annoying to others around you, it can disrupt your sleep and lead to sleep apnea. A snore guard can help eliminate these conditions by keeping your jaw aligned in a comfortable forward position. This allows your airway to remain open and clear, giving you a peaceful night’s rest. Ask the dental professionals at Lowrance Dental if a Snore Guard can help you.
OCCLUSAL SPLINT FOR GRINDING – If you find yourself clenching and grinding your teeth at night, you may benefit from an occlusal splint. Also known as a night guard, a splint can protect your teeth from the excessive wear that accompanies grinding (bruxism). Dr. Stan and his staff offer custom-molded night guards fabricated from the finest materials to ensure a comfortable fit. After just a few weeks of using an occlusal splint, most of our patients say they have trouble falling asleep without it!
ATHLETIC MOUTH GUARD – Custom fabricated mouth guards are extremely effective in preventing sports related tooth loss and facial injuries. Besides preventing pain and suffering, a mouthguard can save high school and college athletes and their families thousands of dollars and countless hours spent in a dentist’s chair.
As an experienced Rockwall dentist, Dr. Stan’s goal is to provide his patients with happy, carefree smile, and the best oral health possible. Whatever your dental requirements, our family focused office can help you. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
