Services For Your Comprehensive Care

Preventive Care & Hygiene

The health of your mouth and teeth is likely more significant in your overall health than you think. In fact, more and more studies are surfacing showing the relationship between your gums/oral health – and your heart! Because this link presents an incredible opportunity to take steps today that can prevent trouble in the future, this is were we start. The foundation of our overall oral health begins with the health of our gums – fighting off periodontal disease – and keeping teeth clean and cared for to prevent unnecessary decay and damage. Regular screenings for oral cancer are another vital part of a solid plan for keeping your health in shape. Our team maintains a high-level of focus and practice in periodontal treatment while incorporating progressive technology – which ultimately creates great outcomes and peace of mind for our patients.

Restorative Dentistry

All of us at some point in time or another will experience conditions with our teeth that require restorative treatment to rebuild and restore them to a healthy state. As with most problems, it is always better to address these issues quickly, before they become bigger problems that may require more extensive treatment to fix. Your team of professionals at Star Ranch Dental are trained and experienced in helping you identify areas of concern quickly, and guiding you in making treatment choices that are both functional and pleasing to the eye.

Bite Force Imbalance – Head, Neck and Jaw Pain

When you chomp and chew – and work the muscles in your jaw, head and neck – enormous forces are constantly in action. Over time or through injury from accidents, stress or natural movement in your teeth, these forces can become imbalanced and cause big problems! Symptoms experienced can be anything from ringing in the ears (tinitus), to “popping” and soreness in the jaw, to life-debilitating migraine headaches. Depending on your unique situation, we can provide the right path to healing and recovery for you – whether it’s handling immediate needs from an acute injury, therapeutic rehabilitation from TMJ disorder over time, or addressing the muscular and nervous system with computer guided treatment (DTR – Disclusion Time Reduction). Dr. Barnett has been successfully treating patients struggling with these issues for many years – and with the increasing number of inquiries and opportunities to help, the Texas Headache Relief program continues to be a lifesaver for many.

Airway Management for Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is a condition more than 200,000 experience every year in the US. Potentially dangerous, and even life-threatening, it is important to discuss the signs and symptoms of mild to moderate sleep apnea with your healthcare providers. Because you likely visit the dentist more frequently than any other doctor – our team is here to help you identify if you are suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, and can drastically improve and correct your condition. If you snore, wake up often throughout the night, or feel fatigued even after a full night’s rest – we’ve got answers to help you get back to feeling great again.
