General Dentistry

There is nothing more important to us than your healthy smile and general well-being. Dr. Lori Logan has advanced training in several areas, but achieving and maintaining excellent oral health always comes back to the services we offer in general dentistry.

As your general dentist in Cypress, Dr. Logan offers solutions to restore, maintain, and protect your oral health.

Healthy Smiles Start with Prevention

We talk a lot about prevention because services like dental exams and cleanings are the foundation for a healthy smile. Dental issues like cavities and periodontal disease are highly preventable, but it requires a team effort. 

We provide preventive dental exams and cleanings every six months, and you do your part by practicing diligent oral hygiene and following a healthy diet.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

Routine dental exams at our Cypress dental office are your best insurance against the discomfort and cost associated with dental problems like cavities. During your checkup, Dr. Logan does a thorough head and neck examination and performs an oral cancer screening. She checks the condition of each tooth and notes it in your patient record.

It is much easier to understand why you need treatment when you can see the problem for yourself. Dr. Logan includes you in the process by using technology like intraoral cameras that let you see what she sees. There’s no longer a mystery about what’s happening with your oral health, and Dr. Logan will discuss various treatment approaches with you so that you can make informed decisions about your oral health.

Before we decide on how to proceed, you will understand what the problem is, what we hope to achieve with treatment, and the results you can expect to see. 

Thorough Teeth Cleanings

Teeth cleanings every six months—or as recommended—are essential for maintaining a healthy smile. One of our skilled hygienists looks for signs of gum disease by checking your gums and measuring the depth of any pockets that have opened between your teeth and gums.

We will perform a thorough teeth cleaning to remove plaque and hardened tartar from your teeth. You can brush away a lot of plaque with at-home oral hygiene, and your hygienist finishes the job by cleaning hard to reach areas and removing the tartar that can only be removed with specialized instruments.

If we find gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, this cleaning, along with stepped-up oral hygiene on your part, is usually enough to eliminate it. Without treatment, gingivitis advances to periodontitis. If this is the case for you, we will recommend a deep cleaning procedure and then monitor your progress several times a year.

Treatments for Decayed, Broken, or Missing Teeth

Preventing dental problems is optimal, but if you have a problem, we offer supportive, non-judgmental care and general restorative dentistry that includes:

  • Tooth fillings
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Dental onlays
  • Full dentures and partials
  • Root canals
  • Tooth extractions

Dr. Logan is also a skilled cosmetic dentist, and she also combines aesthetic and restorative dentistry to perform full mouth rehabilitation. With her advanced training in dental implant placement, Dr. Logan also offers dental implant placement and restoration, including implant dentures.

Straight teeth are healthy teeth, and if you need to address misalignments, we also offer Invisalign clear braces that straighten your smile comfortably and conveniently.
