Family Dentistry
Fort Worth, TX


Little boy learning to brush teeth at HomeTown Dental at Belknap in Fort Worth, TXAt HomeTown Dental at Belknap, we pride ourselves on treating every member of the family. Family dentistry is focused on preventing potential complications, rather than treating them. If you and your family are in need of professional dental services, we can help!

Exams


The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends a routine check-up up roughly twice a year. A routine appointment with Dr. Guram or Dr. Mancera will typically include a professional cleaning and a detailed examination of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues.
Learn more about routine check-ups.

Dentistry for Kids


Professional dental care is a crucial part of your child's oral health. Be sure to schedule your child's first appointment by the time their first teeth erupt, or before their first birthday. Scheduling regular appointments allows us to monitor the development of their oral health. Developmental problems are easier to treat in the beginning stages.

As your child grows older, we can establish a strong foundation for their oral health, one that will ensure a lifetime of healthy, beautiful teeth.
Read more about the importance of dental care for your children.

Fluoride Treatment


Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral found in many of our foods and beverages. It is also a useful tool in fighting tooth decay. Every day, our teeth lose and gain minerals through the processes of demineralization and remineralization. If the process of demineralization exceeds that of remineralization tooth decay will occur.

Professional fluoride treatment allows us to supplement the process of remineralization and prevent potential decay. It can even reverse minor instances of decay. Fluoride treatment is particularly beneficial for patients at a greater risk of tooth decay, such as children, teens, and seniors.
Discover how fluoride treatment can help prevent decay for you and your family.

Dental Sealants


A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that prevents cavities and tooth decay. Sealants are usually applied to the occlusal (bite) surface of the molars and premolars. These teeth possess deep grooves and fissures that are much harder to clean, especially for children and teenagers. Sometimes the grooves are so thin that the bristles of a toothbrush are rendered essentially ineffective. A sealant will provide a more even brushing surface and seal off the enamel from harmful bacteria. Preventing tooth decay will ensure your child’s smile remains beautiful for years to come!
Learn more about dental sealants and how they help prevent decay.

Oral Cancer Screening


An oral cancer screening is simple and quick, but can help you avoid a cancer that 8,000 Americans die from every year. At HomeTown Dental at Belknap, we include oral cancer screenings as part of our comprehensive oral health care so you can be reassured that you have nothing to worry about.

Dental Cleanings


Brushing your teeth twice a day every day, just like the American Dental Association recommends, is great! As dentists, we cannot be happy enough that you are brushing! But a professional cleaning can do things that even the best brushing routine cannot handle. It also gives us the opportunity to spot tooth decay or gum disease before it gets worse.
Learn more about routine check-ups.

Periodontal Care


Your periodontal (gum) tissues are just as important as your teeth. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in the United States. Periodontal disease is the result of an infection in the gum tissues, connective ligaments, and eventually the alveolar bone.

The disease is characterized by gums that are swollen, red, and tend to bleed during brushing and flossing. Luckily, periodontal disease is easy to prevent and treat if it is caught early enough. If we notice signs of advanced periodontal disease, we may recommend a scaling and root planing procedure. The goal is to return your gums to a pink, healthy state.
Learn more about caring for your gums.

Periodontal Maintenance


While you often hear about getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist, you do not often hear about how not all dental cleanings are the same. Periodontal maintenance is a specialized type of cleaning that focuses on the gums. HomeTown Dental at Belknap offers periodontal maintenance as part of our holistic approach to oral health.
Learn more about caring for your gums.

Sports Guards


If you participate in physical activities that put you at risk for dental trauma or injury, we strongly recommend a mouthguard. A mouthguard will protect your teeth and prevent dental emergencies.
Read more about the importance of mouthguards.

Night Guards


If you suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), we may also recommend a night guard. Many patients with bruxism tend to grind their teeth during sleep. A night guard acts as a barrier that prevents enamel wear.
Read more about the importance of night guards.

Oral Appliance Therapy


If you have obstructive sleep apnea, you may benefit from an oral appliance. An oral appliance will keep your jaw in the proper position during sleep. This opens your airway and improves your breathing during sleep. With an oral appliance, you may find yourself feeling more well-rested, alert and happy, thanks to a full night's sleep.
Learn more about how an oral appliance could improve your sleep.

Sleep Apnea


Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that millions of Americans suffer from. It is characterized by difficult and abnormal breathing while asleep, often marked by loud snoring. If you are one of the many people suffering from this common condition, you should know that HomeTown Dental at Belknap is here to help provide relief.
