Wisdom Teeth Removal

In most cases, it is necessary to remove wisdom teeth to avoid increased oral health problems such as an impacted tooth destroying the second molar. Wisdom teeth generate problems because the shape of the modern human mouth is too small to accommodate these teeth, and they become impacted or unable to come in or move into their proper place. We can remove your wisdom teeth by surgery in-office.

Geriatric Dentistry

Our dentists provide personalized treatment for patients of every age. Restorative and cosmetic dental solutions are custom-fit for comfort, and each patient’s health is taken into account before treatment. As you age, you may experience age-related dental issues, and it is important to receive the appropriate treatment before more problems arise.

We can assess your smile and provide an examination to determine the best solution for your dental needs. Patients who are dealing with tooth loss can replace missing teeth with dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures. Worn or yellowed teeth can be treated with teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or tooth bonding. Our professionals can provide treatment for every dental need.

Making Family Care Easier

It can be hard to coordinate dental appointments for every member of your family. We try our best to make it easier. We can help you choose a block of time that works for every member of your family.

You can all come in at the same time to get your dental care so you can make fewer trips to the dentist office. We want to make sure we’re working your dental care into your schedule in an ideal way.

Particularly for children, it helps that they have a trusted family member at their appointment. Having a comforting presence in the room can keep children calm throughout their appointment.

They can also accompany one of their family members to their appointment as well. Seeing their parent or sibling get dental care can help children realize that the dentist isn’t something they have to be scared of.

Family Dentistry FAQs

When should my child start seeing the dentist?

Your child should begin seeing the dentist before they turn a year old or within six months after their first tooth erupts, whichever comes first. Pediatric oral healthcare is extremely important for the future of your child’s oral health.

How often should my family see the dentist?

Regardless of age, after the first childhood dental visit, everyone should visit the dentist once every six months. This allows us to observe changes in the mouth so we can catch problems early on. We’re also able to provide a deeper level of cleaning than you’re able to at home.

Does dental care change with age?

Somewhat. People of different ages are more susceptible to different types of dental problems. Children are prone to tooth decay, while senior adults are more likely to have problems with missing teeth. Regular family dentistry visits allow us to see the signs of developing problems in the early stages.

Does a root canal treatment hurt? 

A root canal treatment should not hurt. The dentist will use local anesthesia to numb the area around the affected tooth, ensuring you’re comfortable during the procedure. You may feel some pressure or mild discomfort, but the treatment should be painless. After the anesthesia wears off, you might experience some tenderness or sensitivity in the area, but you can manage it with over-the-counter pain relievers. Any discomfort should subside within three days. Follow your dentist’s post-treatment care instructions for a smooth recovery.

Who needs dental sealants?

Dental sealants are primarily for children and teenagers. They are most effective when the dentist applies them to newly erupted permanent molars, usually between the ages of 6 and 14. However, adults without existing tooth decay or fillings on their molars can also benefit from dental sealants. Consult your dentist to determine if dental sealants are appropriate for you or your child.

At what age should oral health assessment begin?

Oral health assessments should begin early in a child’s life. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommends that a child’s first dental visit occurs within six months of the appearance of their first tooth or by their first birthday, whichever comes first. This early assessment helps establish a dental home and allows the dentist to monitor the child’s oral health and development. The evaluation also provides parents with guidance on proper oral care practices to prevent dental issues in the future.
