Vista Hills Family Dentistry Services
El Paso's choice for healthy smiles
The best and most effective method for ensuring a healthy and attractive smile that lasts a lifetime is preventative care. This includes regular dental check-ups, dental sealants, space maintainers and fluoride treatments.
At Vista Hills, our approach to preventative care begins with regular check-ups (that include tooth-strengthening fluoride treatments) every six months! This allows us to detect early signs of disease or decay and apply appropriate treatment before these slight issues turn into serious problems.
Dental sealants and space maintainers are another simple yet effective aspect of preventative care that help to avoid cavities and severe orthodontic treatment later in life, respectively. For more information about preventative dental care or to schedule an exam, call 915-592-2097.

Some smiles require more attention than others, and may even need to be rebuilt from a certain point depending on your needs and the best course of action. Because every smile and patient is different, we strongly recommend you consult a professional before moving forward with any restorative treatments.
At Vista Hills, we can help you with a number restorative procedures, including: tooth-colored fillings, crowns, bridges, dental implants, dentures, partial dentures, extractions and occlusal guards.
Our restorative procedures not only recreate a smile you can feel confident in — we also ensure you'll be able to chew, speak and, of course, smile comfortably as well! So call today to schedule your appointment and get started: 915-592-2097
Periodontal Care (Gum Care)
Gum care, known more formally as periodontal care, is key to a healthy smile — especially as we age. For Americans in their 30s and beyond, the threat of gum disease is a very real and potentially dangerous condition. Often, gum disease and infection originates and spreads without pain or other symptoms, going undetected until it creates serious problems (for you AND your checkbook).
Although genetics may play a small role in its development, doctors agree that gum disease is most often directly related to how well people care for their teeth and gums. That's where we come in. In addition to providing you with treatment for an already existing gum disease, our doctors can help you establish a periodontal hygiene routine that will keep your gums healthy, pain-free and disease-free.

Endodontics (Root Canal Treatment)
Experiencing a sharp and throbbing pain in your tooth? Then you're probably in need of endodontic treatment.
Endodontics is a field of dentistry that treats the root canal system. When decay extends to the pulp or the nerve inside of a tooth, there is almost always a spontaneous throbbing pain that occurs. This pain increases at night, is aggravated by cold and sugary foods, and is treated by a root canal, a procedure that treats the the tooth nerve or pulp within a tooth's root canal system.
Treatment begins with profound anesthesia. The nerve is then accessed by drilling into the tooth and then removed. Canals are then cleaned and filled with a bio-inert material.
Following root canal treatment, the tooth is fragile due to insults from decay and mechanical instrumentation and is prone to fracture. Overtime color changes are also observed. To protect the tooth from fracture, your dentist will advise a crown. Sometimes, depending on the amount of lost tooth structure, a post (which is a metal or a glass fiber pin) will need to be placed for added retention of the crown.
