Preventive dentistry is about making sure you avoid dental problems, or at least that the problems don’t develop into serious concerns. We want to help you from spending a significant amount of time or money on something that could’ve been avoided in the first place. A major part of preventive dental care is coming in for a routine check-up every six months so we make sure you don’t need any additional treatments.
Cleanings & Exams
During a standard teeth cleaning, we’ll thoroughly clean, floss, and polish your teeth, removing any plaque or tartar that may have built up. During a dental exam, Dr. Litton will check for signs of any potential issues to ensure everything looks a-okay with your oral health.
Fluoride is essential for keeping teeth healthy and strong. Many people get enough of the mineral through their water supply and toothpaste, but some people require extra treatment.
Sealants & Fillings
Sealants prevent bacteria from settling into those hard-to-reach grooves in the back teeth to help prevent cavities. If you do happen to have a cavity, we can treat it with a filling that’s tooth-colored so it blends in naturally.
Periodontal (Gum) Care
Having a healthy mouth means having healthy gums. We offer different periodontal services like deep cleanings and Arestin® antibiotic treatment to get rid of gum disease.
Mouthguards & Nightguards
If you play contact sports or have a condition called bruxism where you grind your teeth at night, we recommend having a mouthguard or nightguard made. Wearing one will prevent an injury or wear from leaving lasting damage.
Even if you are dealing with damaged or missing teeth, there are a number of options out there for you to have a healthy, fully-functioning smile again. Come to Litton Family Dental and we’ll come up with a personalized treatment plan to restore your oral health back to peak condition.

Bridges & Dentures
Dental bridges and dentures are two options for replacing missing teeth that can give you back a full smile as well as full function of your mouth. We design these restorations to fit securely and look natural. Contact our office to learn more about our services for dentures and dental bridges in New Braunfels.
Dental implants are a popular tooth-replacement alternative to bridges and dentures due to how closely they match the way natural teeth look, feel and function, and how they’re permanently fixed in place. Our dentures in New Braunfels can restore your confidence and smile!

Don’t let it’s bad reputation fool you. Root canal therapy is a routine procedure that isn’t something to be afraid of. In fact, it can mean the difference between saving and losing your tooth. We perform root canal therapy in New Braunfels to remove infection and alleviate tooth pain.
As part of comprehensive service offerings, we provide oral surgery in house, including dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, and bone grafts.

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can cause jaw pain, jaw stiffness, and chronic headaches. We can work with you to create a personalized treatment plan to pinpoint the cause of your condition and help you find relief.
