Caring for your teeth is an important part of caring for yourself. The health of your teeth, gums, and mouth is strongly linked to your body’s overall health. Your Cypress dental team knows this and provides all of our patients with high-quality, comprehensive dental care to help them achieve and maintain the smile of their dreams.
Regular visits to our Cypress dentist office help keep your teeth and gums healthy. Our preventive treatments help you maintain optimal oral health. Preventive care also allows us to be conservative in our treatment recommendations, saving you time and money.
Routine Exams & Cleanings
Maintaining your 6-month exam and cleaning schedule is a vital part of your oral health. During your exam, we take any necessary X-rays to check for potential problems and complete an oral cancer screening.
Fluoride treatments help protect your teeth from decay caused by acid from plaque and sugars. We offer fluoride treatments for adults and children.
Sealants are typically placed on children’s teeth shortly after they erupt, and they help protect molars and premolars from tooth decay.
Mouthguards & Nightguards

Sometimes your teeth need a little extra care to be in tip-top shape. We offer a number of restorative treatments to get your smile back on track and get you talking, eating, and smiling with confidence again.
If you have a tooth that is cracked or chipped, a dental crown can protect the remaining tooth structure and add needed strength to the tooth. Cypress, TX dentists Dr. Pettey and Dr. Nail carefully mold, prepare, fit, and bond your new crown to your tooth, providing you with a restoration that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
Bridges replace multiple missing teeth in a row. We will place a crown on either side of the gap. A false tooth or teeth connect to the crowns to “bridge” the gap. Your new bridge will function just like your remaining natural teeth.
Dental implants involve a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone and acts as an artificial tooth root. Over time, the implant fuses to the jawbone and a custom dental restoration can be placed on top.
Dentures are the preferred way to replace teeth when a patient is missing all or most of their teeth. New and improved materials and techniques have led to dentures that are more comfortable and fit more naturally than ever before. Over a series of appointments, our Cypress dental team will create, mold, and fit your dentures. Once they’re fitted, you’ll be back to eating your favorite foods, and smiling and laughing with confidence.
Composite fillings require less prep and leave behind more healthy tooth structure than traditional silver fillings. Plus, their natural color blends in seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Endodontics, or root canal therapy, helps relieve the pain of an infected tooth. With root canal therapy, Dr. Pettey or Dr. Nail removes the pulp of the infected tooth and cleans the gum tissue. The internal part of the tooth is filled and sealed to protect against future infection. Finally, a crown is placed to keep the tooth safe from bacteria and damage.
While the term “root canal” stirs up painful thoughts, most patients report that the pain caused by the infection is much worse than any discomfort they feel because of the root canal therapy.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, typically erupt in late teen or early adult years. Often, there is not enough room for these teeth to come in properly, leaving them crooked, crowded, or even not fully erupted (impacted). Impaction can cause abscesses or infection. Extraction of wisdom teeth is often necessary to protect against these problems and to keep surrounding teeth from shifting.
Dr. Pettey or Dr. Nail will examine your teeth and X-rays. If he determines that extraction is necessary, they will walk you through the process and address any concerns you might have. They will also discuss your sedation options with you to ensure that you are as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.
