Stay Out Of The Dental Danger Zone

Dental Danger Zone

You would never consider running a red light on a busy Hurst street or crossing over a lane of orange construction cones on the freeway, but you might be doing some everyday things that are perilous for your oral health.

I want to share with you some common habits that could be detrimental to the health of your teeth.

Crunching ice between your teeth might be refreshing, but it can be dangerous to the soft tissue inside your mouth. Once this tissue gets irritated, you’re more likely to get toothaches and have increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods.

Participating in your favorite sport without required mouth protection is a risk that no one should take. If there is a chance that a mouth injury could take place (and there is with most sports) then get to the nearest sporting goods store and pick up a mouth guard or, better yet, ask me about a custom mouthguard.

Using your teeth to open anything is a bad idea. Every time your teeth come in contact with foreign objects there is potential for chipping and cracking.

Now that you know how to avoid these risks, what can you do if you’ve already damaged your teeth from these activities or similar ones? Make an appointment with our friendly staff and we’ll see how we can help.

If you’ve had chipping or cracking issues, there are a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures that might help you. If you have overly-sensitive teeth, I may be able to prescribe a prescription toothpaste to lessen the pain.

We can also answer any questions you have about veneers, gum contouring, or teeth whitening in Hurst. We hope to hear from you soon, but in the meantime, keep those pearly whites safe and sound.

Let’s Talk About Your Smile

Let’s Talk About Your Smile I’m Clinton Hyatt of Hyatt Family Dental. My office is located at 8711 Bedford Euless Rd in Hurst. One of the best things about being a dentist is interacting with my patients. During initial dental consultations, I listen carefully to my patient’s short and long term dental goals.

I enjoy discussing options and developing effective treatment plans tailored specifically to each person. Some of my patients desire a total smile makeover. I explain in detail the treatments available including teeth whitening, dental veneers, orthodontia, crown restoration, and dental implants.

If a patient is nervous about undergoing treatment, we discuss oral conscious sedation. Oral conscious sedation, sometimes called oral sedation dentistry, is a great option for anxious patients. Dental visits do not have to be painful!

After the treatment has been completed, it is very gratifying for me to see my patient’s reaction to their new smile.

I never get tired of creating dramatic smile transformations for the best patients in Texas!

If you have been considering a smile makeover, let’s talk about your smile. Call Hyatt Family Dental at 817-500-4228 to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation. Ask us about:

Have You Thanked Your Dental Assistant Lately?

North Richland Hills Extreme Smile Makeover

Your Hurst dental practice would be a very different place if it weren’t for the proficient dental assistants who work there.

Today in our Hurst, Texas dental blog we would like to highlight the importance of these hard workers who are often taken for granted.

Dental assistants make your dental appointment much more effective, efficient, and safe.

You, the patient, are prepared for treatment by dental assistants and, during services (such as filling cavities, placing crowns, root canals, or teeth whitening) the assistants speed things along by passing instruments, holding devices, and recording critical information.

Most North Richland Hills cosmetic dental patients would agree that anyone who helps to shorten their time in the dental chair is a person who deserves thanks!

Keeping the dental office clean and sterilizing instruments are other vital responsibilities taken on by dental assistants. What would we do without them?

My name is Clinton Hyatt. I have been serving the Hurst area since 2011. The skilled dental assistants at my practice, Hyatt Family Dental in Hurst, are world-class, along with the rest of our friendly staff.

If you are looking for exceptional dental care in Hurst, East Euless, North Richland Hills, or Bedford, please give us a call at 817-500-4228 . We can explore your dental care needs as well as any cosmetic dentistry procedures you might be interested in, such as veneers, dental implants, gum contouring, or an extreme smile makeover.

You Can’t Afford Cheap Dental Work

Hurst teeth whitening

Have you ever gotten a bargain on a used car that turned out to be a lemon? After a couple years of never-ending repairs, you realized that it ended up costing as much as a new car would have. And after spending all that money, you still have a a clunker.

The same is true of deficient dental work. You have probably received glossy postcard ads that publicize amazing deals on cosmetic dentistry: porcelain veneers, crowns, white fillings, and dental implants. The prices may be tempting, but be sure you do plenty of research before committing. We aren’t trying to imply that all dental practices that publicize low procedure prices in their ads furnish poor quality work – we are just cautioning patients not to decide on a cosmetic dentist based on price alone. Unlike an automobile, you can’t sell your smile and buy a new one.

We will use porcelain veneers as an example. What can go wrong if you end up with substandard porcelain veneers?

  • The dentist may be inexperienced and make mistakes: improper placement, inadequate color matching, bite complications.

  • The materials may be deficient: unnatural color, prone to breaking, veneers pop off.

  • The lab techs that create the restorations may turn out low quality work: unnatural color, poor fit.


If you are considering a smile transformation, talk to doctor Clinton Hyatt at Hyatt Family Dental first. During your consultation, you will learn about doctor Hyatt’s years of experience, techniques, specialty training, number of procedures performed, the most appropriate materials for the restorations, and information about the dental lab we use. We can also provide references if requested. And, of course, we will consider how much each process will cost. We are certain that you will find that our prices our competitive for the excellent dentistry doctor Hyatt delivers.

Don’t compromise your smile in an attempt to save some money. You really do get what you pay for.
