"Make our pediatric patients feel comfortable is the beginning of a healthy and happy smile for many years."
Pediatric dentistry requires age-specific knowledge and experience as well as a gentle and patient bedside manner. Our team works together to create a warm and friendly environment where children of all ages feel comfortable. We understand that taking the time to make a child feel welcome can be the difference between looking forward to going to the dentist or dreading it. We approach our pediatric patients with long-term goals in mind. Making our smallest patients excited to come to our office will give them the foundation for a lifetime of healthy dental care. Teaching children proper preventative care can mean the difference between a happy healthy smile for many years to come or struggling with poor oral hygiene and potentially expensive corrections down the road.
When we work with pediatric patients we work with the patient’s entire dental lifespan in mind. The teeth can often indicate potential issues that have already occurred such as discoloration due to a sudden impact or cavities that indicate lack of proper care. The present state of the teeth gives us a starting place and an opportunity to educate the child on any needed techniques such as flossing that can help improve his or her oral health. The condition and placement of the teeth also provide valuable insights as to potential issues in the future. Pediatric dentistry comes with its own set of issues that a dental team needs to watch out for. Thumb sucking and pacifier use can cause front teeth to bow out and forward. Tooth decay can be caused by bottle use for long periods of time. A common practice of giving a baby a bottle of juice at bedtime can create an acidic environment leading to decay and cavities. For our older pediatric patients, quality care and screening can give advanced warning of things such as impacted wisdom teeth or the possibility of braces in the future. Our team will work with you and your child to achieve the optimum oral health possible and install the knowledge that your child can use to proudly care for his or her teeth and gums for years to come.
Adult dentistry is common, but critical part of maintaining lifelong oral health and can’t be ignored. We find our adult patients have a wide range of feelings from relaxed to terrified when it comes to going to the dentist. We work hard to put every patient at ease and make sure you feel comfortable and cared for. Our team understands that your comfort level is important so that you never dread coming to see us. This will make it much more likely that you’ll visit us every six months for your regular checkup and cleaning. Regular dentist visits are the best way to maintain your optimum oral health and keep costs down. A simple cavity can progress into a potentially expensive root canal or worse if it is not caught early. We treat all of our adult patients with kindness and respect. We hope to impart our knowledge and oral health care techniques so that your teeth are healthy and sparkling for years to come.
Geriatric dentistry requires a wide range of knowledge and dental expertise. Our older population is keeping their teeth for much longer due to advances in care and prevention. Proper geriatric dentistry needs to include adult specific knowledge as well “as a wide range of skill involving alternate options such as prosthetic teeth, dentures, bridges, and crowns. Each of these options has pros and cons and are situationally specific depending on the patient’s needs. Our team can guide you through the many choices available if you are in need of support for, or replacement of, your existing teeth.
As we age, our overall health and individual conditions must be taken into consideration when examining dental health. As people get older they are more likely to take prescription medications. These medications need to be discussed and taken into account whenever a treatment plan is being made. Some medications can cause patients to suffer from dryness of the mouth or other conditions that could make dental treatment uncomfortable. Our team will take the time to analyze these conditions and make your experience as pleasant as possible. Our family focused team can skillfully guide a geriatric patient through his or her options and execute a well-designed treatment plan to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Our team puts their best feet forward when it comes to dental techniques, advances in our field and up to date training. But we also put our all into welcoming every person that walks through our door as though they are family. We understand that no matter your age, going to the dentist can be a challenge. Your comfort and dental health are our top priorities. Whether you are a child, parent or grandparent, we want you to look forward to seeing us, as much as we look forward to seeing you.
