Preventing Cavities in Children
Tooth decay remains a leading childhood disease. Children who experience higher rates of childhood tooth decay are more prone to a lifetime of oral health and systemic health issues. Tooth decay can be preventable with routine dental care and good at-home oral hygiene. Regular visits to the dentist enable our dentists to spot the early signs of decay and disease before more complex problems develop. Visiting the dentist regularly also lays the foundation for a lifetime of healthy oral hygiene habits.
Our dental care team will always offer age-appropriate oral hygiene advice and instruction on the best brushing and flossing techniques. We encourage parents and caregivers to get involved in their child’s oral health care at home and at the dentist. Young patients are influenced by their role models- and setting a good example can help your child and you enjoy better oral health.
Dental Treatments for Seniors
As we age, we can encounter dental problems like missing teeth, darkened tooth enamel, and damaged teeth. Learn more about the solutions we offer for these dental issues below:
Dental Implants, Bridges, and Dentures: Whether you are missing just one tooth or whole arches of teeth, we have options for you. A single dental implant consists of a sturdy titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone for a permanent result. A dental bridge replaces multiple missing teeth, especially consecutive missing teeth. Dentures are good for patients with full arches of missing teeth and can use implants for a stronger end-result.
Porcelain Veneers and Tooth Bonding: Dental veneers and dental bonding are similar methods of treating damaged or stained teeth. Dental veneers are made of high-quality translucent porcelain that is bonded to the front and sides of teeth. Dental bonding uses resin composite material on teeth. Both of these options blend in with natural teeth because they are color-matched.
Tooth Whitening Treatment: We offer take-home tooth whitening treatment to brighten tooth enamel for a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing look. This professional cosmetic solution whitens teeth by several shades over time.
