General dentist office in Houston, TX built on a foundation of proactive dental care
As the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the country, Houston TX, residents get to enjoy all of the cultural, recreational, and other amenities that you’d expect from a community of more than 2 million people (and growing exponentially!). Additionally, we in Greater Houston have many options for health care. We appreciate that there are quite literally thousands of general dental practices in our immediate area to choose from, and we are thrilled that you have found and are considering our “dental family” for your family’s oral health needs.
Every general dentist in Houston, Texas has their own set of skills, educational and clinical background, approach to care, and technologies to apply to your services. At Vivid Dental, we like to emphasize our approach to partnering with patients. This approach is built on proactive, preventive services that keep your teeth and gums healthy, and that minimize the risks of developing the leading causes of tooth loss: gum disease and tooth decay. Dr. Monti Harpalani’s office has, at its heart:
- Recall appointments – typically scheduled every six months, within a comfortable and welcoming environment. These visits involve examining your teeth and gums for potential problems that may require modifications to dental care or professional treatment. Since most dental problems are “silent” or asymptomatic early on, these visits are vital for Dr. Harpalani to detect underlying issues that aren’t visible with the naked eye (or that may not have produced symptoms such as bleeding yet).
- Routine check-ups are combined with professional cleanings. Even the most consistent and thorough home care needs to be combined with in-office cleanings that remove stubborn tartar. This hardened plaque doesn’t budge with brushing and flossing alone. Plus, patients love how minty-fresh their breath feels and how great their teeth look with a nice polish. In fact, these visits often inspire our patients to take even better care of their teeth.
- Risk factors for tooth decay and gum disease are managed. Every patient is different. So, professional dental care is customized to each person; for instance, if you smoke, use e-cigarettes, are diabetic, or have any number of other risk factors that are discussed during your appointments, Dr. Harpalani may recommend scheduling more frequent visits with you. The same approach is taken should you have existing gum disease. We want to act right away with appropriate perio-maintenance.
Additionally, Dr. Harpalani takes great pride in offering services that are hard to come by at other dentists’ offices. He has invested in “painless dentistry,” which involves specialized techniques (such as the injection of a local anesthetic). Even his cosmetic services are set apart favorably from other offices. Vivid Dental may determine you are a good candidate for ultra-thin porcelain veneers (Lumineers) or for cosmetic braces (Six Month Smiles), that allow you to straighten your teeth typically in six months or less.
