What are the benefits of having a family dentist?

We can devise the most practical and convenient treatment plans possible for you and your loved ones through family dental care, including routine exams, dental sealants, and more. We proudly offer the same detail-attentive, uncompromising care to all patients. Whether it’s evaluating dental development for younger patients or cosmetic services for adults, our team does it all.

This includes preventive care to help remove plaque. Plaque is a coating of bacteria that can’t be seen and produces no symptoms in its earlier stages. Yet, it continues to advance until it causes more serious harm to the tooth and gums.

Proper oral hygiene habits are indispensable in avoiding plaque and decay, and by bringing your younger loved ones in, we can demonstrate how to clean one’s teeth effectively. Plus, getting your family used to routine dental care will improve the chances that your child will feel more comfortable about treatments and adhere to dental appointments as an adult.

A professional in-office cleaning is of particular importance to prevent periodontal disease, or periodontitis. Once gum disease develops into this more severe form, the plaque has solidified and calcified, cementing itself to one’s teeth. Tartar resists at-home hygiene efforts such as brushing, and must be removed in a clinical setting. And that’s where we come in, removing the tartar from the teeth to help avoid gum recession, infection, and tooth damage that could necessitate an extraction.

Restoration and preventive services

We can also pair your cleaning with a strengthening fluoride treatment. It’s been proven that communities with fluoride in their drinking water have better dental outcomes, and we provide this service for all ages. Generally, it’s recommended for children, as they’re likelier to indulge in sweets, sodas, and other potentially sugary treats. However, we may also suggest this simple but beneficial treatment for older individuals, especially those who live in communities that don’t have fluoride in the water. Either way, a fluoride application can significantly improve one’s oral health by boosting the teeth and preventing decay.

For our more active patients, custom-fitted mouth guards can assist in preserving one’s dental health during sporting events or other activities. One of the best ways to deal with a problem is to avoid it, and mouth guards could avert a dental issue by protecting one’s teeth from trauma.

We also offer a full range of restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry services to help our patients regain their stunning smiles. With well over 100 million Americans suffering from a missing tooth, there are various options to fill that gap.

Similarly, for teeth that are cracked, chipped, or face some other type of damage, our restorative services can restore integrity and aesthetics in a natural-looking way.
