Family dentistry includes general dentistry treatments to prevent common dental problems, including tooth decay, gum disease, and cavities.
Your Child’s First Dental Visit and At-Home Care
We recommend that parents bring their children to our dental office for their first visit before they turn one. This is because children’s primary or baby teeth emerge before their first birthday. During your child’s first visit, we will examine their smiles for signs of tooth decay or gum inflammation. We are passionate about patient education, which is why we help teach parents and young patients how to care for their smiles at routine visits. Our office staff, dental hygienists, and dentists create a warm and friendly office environment where young patients can feel comfortable. For patients of all ages, regular dental appointments allow us to discover emerging dental problems before they worsen. It also opens up lines of communication so patients can be educated on their own oral health.
At home, we will recommend that parents clean their child’s gums and teeth when they first appear. Wiping the gums with a damp cloth helps remove food particles and harmful bacteria from the mouth. When the primary teeth appear, parents can use an infant toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste to keep the teeth and gums clean.
Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments
As children grow and their teeth come in, they may require additional preventative care at regular dental appointments. Dental sealants and fluoride are great preventative treatments that we offer in-office. Sealants are protective coatings that we brush onto the back molars. The molars are often prone to cavities and decay because they can be difficult to reach. Dental sealants protect the teeth and help “seal out” decay. Fluoride treatments also strengthen the tooth enamel and protect them from harmful bacteria.
Dental Treatments for Aging Smiles
As we all age, we can develop oral health problems over time. Some common problems can include tooth damage, discoloration, and even loss. Dental veneers, tooth bonding, dental crowns, teeth whitening, dental implants can help. Porcelain veneers and dental bonding treatments address chips, cracks, discoloration, and misshapen teeth. Likewise, dental crowns can cover areas of tooth damage and even strengthen weakened teeth.
With our professional teeth whitening treatments, we can remove years of staining from the tooth enamel. Patients can restore one or more missing teeth with dental implants. Implants also secure dental bridges and dentures in place for patients missing full rows or arches of teeth.
