Dental Services for the Entire Family
Our team of family dentists is here to serve you and your loved ones. Our dental practice offers a wide range of dental services, from preventive care to cosmetic dentistry.
Our cosmetic treatments include simple teeth whitening treatments to more complex dental procedures like veneers and dental implants. Our family dentists will work with you to determine which cosmetic dentistry options are suitable for you based on your specific needs and goals. With their help, you can enjoy the benefits of a healthy, attractive smile that you can be proud of.
Dental fillings are used to fix damage caused by tooth decay or injury. The filling material is put on the affected area and hardened, restoring the tooth to its original shape. We often use composite fillings made from glass and plastic particles. Composite fillings are strong and durable and can match the patient’s natural tooth color.
We know that dental emergencies can happen at any time, so we offer emergency treatment. Our family dentistry professionals will see you as soon as possible to help relieve your pain and get you on the road to healing. Whether you need a filling, a root canal, or extractions, we will care for you.
Oral Exams and Dental Cleanings
Oral exams are essential for detecting oral health problems, such as tooth decay, gingivitis, and oral cancer. Professional cleanings are done to remove plaque and tartar from teeth, preventing tooth decay and gum disease. We can also provide information on proper dental care, such as brushing and flossing techniques. In addition, we can offer guidance on choosing the right toothbrush, toothpaste, and other dental products.
Our dentists are specifically trained to care for the dental needs of children. We are trained to offer our pediatric patients everything from regular check-ups to dental treatment for more complex dental issues, such as cavities, gum disease, and braces.
This program is designed to help our patients avoid dental problems before they start. We offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to help protect their teeth from decay. We also teach children the importance of good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. Our goal is to provide our patients with tools to maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime.
Oral Health Tips to Practice at Home
Making sure your family has healthy teeth and gums requires dental care at home and regular visits to the dentist. Here are four oral health tips for practicing at home:
- Brush your teeth two times a day for at least two minutes with fluoride toothpaste. Be sure to brush your tongue too.
- Floss daily. Begin by wrapping the dental floss around your middle finger and using your thumb and index finger to guide it between your teeth. Use a gentle back-and-forth motion to remove plaque and food debris between your teeth and below the gum line.
- Eat an overall healthy diet and limit your sugar intake. Eating crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots, and celery can help clean your teeth naturally. And drink plenty of water all day to keep your mouth hydrated.
- Visit the dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings. Your dentist can detect early signs of severe dental health issues and provide professional teeth cleanings that remove plaque build-up that you may have missed while brushing at home.
By following these oral health tips, you can help keep your family’s smile healthy for years to come!
