At Cypress Springs Family Dentistry, our primary goal is to keep your smile happy and healthy for life. In this mission, we’re proud to offer quality general dentistry. We provide the preventive care services your smile needs to be healthy today and prevent painful and costly oral health problems down the road.
There’s no question that preventive care is the foundation for a healthy smile. While there are other factors involved, poor oral hygiene is the primary cause of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. For the best chance at a healthy smile for life, you should:
While we love seeing our patients regularly to catch up, that’s not the only reason we want to see you twice every year. Your mouth is a micro-environment that plays an important role in your overall health. Your Cypress dentist, Dr. Kyle Todd, is in a unique position (inside your mouth) to detect disease and decay before it becomes problematic. We use advanced technology, including digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to screen for any changes or abnormalities that could be a sign of:
While we hope you’ve taken our advice and implemented a thorough oral homecare routine for you and your family, we realize that we’re all human, and we’re not perfect. (Even Dr. Todd forgets to floss sometimes.) That’s why your regular cleanings and exams are so important. We have the tools and the training here at Cypress Springs Family Dentistry to take care of any plaque or tartar you may have left behind. Our hygiene team is:
If we do happen to find a cavity, don’t panic. Most kids and adults will get at least one cavity filled in their life, and most of us will have more than one. It happens. The good news is, with modern techniques and materials, we can now fill cavities without the use of toxic mercury or unsightly metal. We use a tooth-colored resin that is:
If you or your little one is prone to tooth decay and cavities, we can provide dental sealants for an added layer of protection to keep tooth decay at bay.
Did you know that gum disease affects nearly half of the American adult population, and according to the American Academy of Periodontology, is the leading cause of tooth loss? While you may think it’s normal for your gums to bleed sometimes during regular brushing or flossing, the truth is, bleeding gums are a sign of early-stage gum disease or gingivitis. Left untreated, gingivitis will progress into advanced gum disease (periodontitis), which can cause:
The best thing you can do if you think you may have gum disease is to improve your daily oral hygiene routine and come see us at Cypress Springs Family Dentistry. We can provide:
Do you suffer from chronic headaches or migraines? Do you clench and grind your teeth? Does your jaw feel sore or tired, or pop, lock or click when opening or closing? You may be one of the millions of Americans suffering from TMJ or TMD, and you may not even know it.
At Cypress Springs Family Dentistry, we have a safe, non-invasive, affordable, and highly effective treatment option for you with oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy involves a custom mouth guard worn during sleep to prevent the teeth grinding and clenching, and the TMJ tension that is causing your pain.
The benefits of oral appliance therapy include:

If you or your little one is involved in any contact sports, we highly recommend using a mouthguard to protect your teeth. Not only do mouthguards prevent tooth loss from sports injuries, but they can also reduce the risk of concussions. While you can buy stock mouthguards at the store, a custom mouthguard from your Cypress dentist offers the most comfortable fit and the highest level of protection.
Compared with a stock mouthguard, a custom mouthguard from your Cypress dentist provides:
