The philosophy behind comprehensive dentistry is that most serious dental conditions can be prevented by regular checkups and cleanings. Dr. Kunjumon takes a comprehensive approach to oral health because it enables him to diagnose problems in the teeth, gums, and jaws as early as possible, then treat them using the most effective and conservative methods.
For many people, especially those dealing with chronic conditions like gum disease, diabetes, or recurrent decay, preventive care isn’t enough to maintain optimal oral health. If your smile ever does need a little extra TLC, Dr. Kunjumon offers many complex restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments—including natural-looking restorations, orthodontic services and laser dentistry—that will have you eating your favorite foods and smiling with confidence again in no time. There’s something for everyone’s smile at our League City dental office!
During your cleaning & exam, our hygienist will remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from the surface of your teeth before polishing your teeth. She will also floss to test the condition of your gums. If she notices any recession or inflammation, she will also measure your gum pockets.
Dr. Kunjumon will then perform a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and existing dental restorations, along with any digital X-rays that were taken at the beginning of your visit. If he notices areas of concern, he may take photos with an intraoral camera to get a better look. After his exam, Dr. Kunjumon will share all of his findings and work with you to determine a plan of action for any issues that have been diagnosed.
Dental sealants fill in the grooves on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, an area where food particles commonly get caught and cause cavities. League City dentist Dr. Agee Kunjumon can apply sealants with minimal preparation, effectively protecting teeth for years.
Fluoride protects teeth from decay and can even help reverse the early stages of decay. There is a safe and effective amount of fluoride in most toothpastes, but a more concentrated fluoride rinse after each professional cleaning can really help to fight off decay.
We believe in providing emergency dentistry as immediately as possible. We are normally able to provide emergency dentistry quickly due to our robust scheduling system. By keeping our open slots up to date, in many cases, we may even be in a position to bring you in for a same day appointment.
When Dr. Kunjumon fills cavities, he uses biocompatible composite materials that can be matched very closely to the surrounding healthy teeth. Composite fillings are often faster and easier to place than amalgam (silver) fillings, because they require less of your tooth to be shaved down in preparation for the restoration.
Crowns improve more than just the appearance of your smile—they restore damaged and decayed teeth and protect them for years. Crowns are a functional and versatile restorative dental treatment that can be used in conjunction with dental implants, fixed bridges, and root canal therapy.
Dr. Kunjumon offers state of the art laser dentistry. Instead of shots, and high-speed noisy drills, Touchstone Dentistry uses Waterlase technology to prepare your teeth for fillings.
Dental bridges are restorations that combine the best aspects of crowns and partial dentures to literally “bridge” the gap created by missing teeth.
When placing a bridge, Dr. Kunjumon first takes careful molds of your teeth to send to the lab, which will ensure that your bridge will look and fit very naturally when it’s placed. He then prepares the teeth on either side of the gap (known as the “support teeth”) the same way he would for a dental crown, shaving them down to the perfect size and shape for the bridge. Once the bridge is ready, he cements it to the prepared support teeth, then shapes it as necessary until it feels just right to you. With easy home care instructions and a little practice, your bridge will feel like part of your natural smile in no time.
The pulp inside of a tooth can become infected when the tooth is cracked, broken, or severely decayed. If the pulp is not removed with a root canal, it can cause an abscess or even spread the infection to surrounding teeth. Root canal therapy is a highly-successful restorative procedure that we provide right here in our League City dental office, and it can protect a tooth for many years.
It’s not uncommon for teeth to lose their brightness as we age, especially for those of us who enjoy a glass of red wine or daily cup of coffee. If you’re ready to reclaim your vibrant smile, our take-home teeth whitening kits are just what you need.
If your teeth are very discolored and you haven’t been able to achieve the results you want with traditional whitening methods, don’t give up! The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching system has been proven to remove even stubborn stains caused by antibiotics and tobacco products using a combination of in-office treatments and take-home trays. Despite its powerful whitening agents, KöR Deep Bleaching tends to cause very little sensitivity to the teeth and gums.

Your gums hold your teeth in place, support the roots, and even protect the underlying bone - they are the foundation of your teeth. Just as a house is only as strong as its foundation, your teeth are only as healthy as your gums!
According to the National Institutes of Health, 8–10% of American adults currently have some degree of gum disease. The mild stage, known as gingivitis, is characterized by red, swollen gums that bleed every time you floss. If it’s caught early enough, gingivitis is completely reversible with in-office treatments and proper home care. Left undiagnosed, it can progress to more serious periodontal disease, which can result in tooth loss, infections, and an increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
In the past, the tried-and-true treatment for gum disease was surgery. League City dentist Dr. Agee Kunjumon can treat many cases with less-invasive techniques first, including medicated rinses and local antibiotics, so be sure to keep up with your biannual cleanings and exams! The sooner we can diagnose potential problems, the quicker we can get you back on the road to good oral health.
