Meet Dr. Jason White
Dr. Jason White believes in going the extra mile to make his patients top priority and make them feel welcome the minute they walk through the door.
Maintain Outstanding Dental Health
There is a lot you can do on your own to achieve and maintain healthy teeth and gums. A daily routine of brushing and flossing is extremely valuable, but it is important to visit a dentist twice a year for a thorough professional cleaning. Dr. Jason White and his staff provide general dentistry at his Lubbock, West Texas office, including standard cleanings, tooth and root cleaning below the gum line, root canal therapy, and extractions. Your first exam with us will include a visual examination, X-rays of front and back teeth, periodontal probing, any necessary diagnosis, and treatment recommendations. If you are new to the greater Lubbock area, or need to establish a relationship with a friendly, experienced dental professional, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Scaling & Planing
If it has been longer than a year since your last professional teeth cleaning, it is possible that you will require periodontal scaling, or cleaning of the tooth below the gum line. Stubborn tartar deposits can develop in these hard-to-reach areas, resulting in tooth decay or gum disease. If these conditions are already present, Dr. White can use advanced tools, including ultrasonic technology, to remove these deposits and treat any damage that has occurred in the tooth or surrounding gum tissue.
In some cases, a tooth root may require planing. This means that the texture of the tooth was made rough during the cleaning, and it needs to be made smooth again to allow gum tissue to better attach itself and foster proper healing. To ensure your comfort through these treatments, we can administer a local anesthetic. If you have waited a year or more between teeth cleanings,contact our Lubbock office today to schedule thorough general dentistry care.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a classic and often essential method of salvaging a tooth that has experienced advanced decay. If decay has spread to the tooth pulp (the inner chamber containing nerves, blood vessels, and other tissue) and extended to the tiny inner portion of the tooth roots, a root canal procedure performed by Dr. White can remove the tooth pulp and clean deep within the roots, leaving a healthy outer tooth structure. Next, the tooth’s inner chamber is filled with a rubber-like material, and the access point is sealed. Finally, you are left with a healthy-looking tooth that can help you chew comfortably and enjoy a balanced bite.
Learn More About General Dentistry
If you are in need of a routine cleaning, or if you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your teeth, gums, or jaw, contact our Lubbock office today to learn how general dentistry treatments can benefit you.
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are often marked by a clicking or popping sound in the jaw when the mouth opens and closes. It can result in headaches, backaches, and tooth sensitivity. Dr. White can help treat this condition with custom-made mouth guards to wear while sleeping. This will prevent you from grinding your teeth while you sleep, which can reduce the effects of TMJ.
Sports Mouth Guard
Whether you are a serious athlete or just enjoy playing sports from time to time, a mouth guard is essential in protecting your teeth from injury. Dr. White can provide custom mouth guards to help you protect the integrity of your teeth while playing contact sports.
