Making Family Care Easier

At Premier Dental Care, we provide general dentistry services for all ages. As patients encounter dental problems over time, we offer cosmetic and restorative dental care for adults.

Family dentistry services that our dental health professionals offer include:

  • Dental check-ups and exams
  • Custom sports mouthguards
  • Root canal treatments
  • Periodontal therapy
  • Dental crowns
  • Tooth bonding
  • Dental fillings
  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental Cleanings
  • Diagnostic X-rays
  • Orthodontic screening
  • Dental sealants
  • Age-appropriate oral hygiene education

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

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

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

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

Wisdom Teeth Removal

In most cases, we must remove wisdom teeth to avoid oral health problems. An impacted wisdom tooth can destroy the second molar.

Wisdom teeth create problems because the shape of the modern human mouth is too small to accommodate these teeth. Impacted wisdom teeth cannot come in straight, or move into their proper place. We can remove your wisdom teeth through oral surgery or an in-office tooth extraction.

Geriatric Dentistry

Our dentists provide personalized treatment for our patients at every stage of their lives. We tailor our restorative and cosmetic dental services for comfort. Our dentists take each patient’s overall health into account before treatment.

As you age, you may experience age-related dental issues. You must receive the appropriate treatment before more problems arise. We will assess your smile and provide an examination to determine the best solution for your dental needs.

For example, Dr. Naguib helps patients who are dealing with tooth loss using dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures. He helps patients with worn or yellow teeth using teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental crowns, or tooth bonding. Our professionals can provide treatment for every one of your dental needs.

Family Dentistry FAQs

Learn more about family dentistry in our Palmdale and Lancaster dental offices with answers to these common questions: 

When should my child start seeing the dentist?

Your child should begin seeing the dentist before turning a year old or within six months after their first tooth erupts, whichever comes first. Pediatric oral healthcare is essential 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 to catch problems early on. We’re also able to provide a deeper level of cleaning than you can 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 early on.

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. We will make sure you are 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. You can manage it with over-the-counter pain relievers. Any discomfort should subside within three days. Follow our dentist’s post-treatment care instructions for a smooth recovery.

Who needs dental sealants?

Dental sealants are primarily for children and teenagers, usually between the ages of 6 and 14. They are most effective when the dentist applies them to newly erupted permanent molars.

However, adults without existing tooth decay or fillings on their molars can also benefit from sealants. Consult our dentist to determine if sealants are appropriate for you or your child.

At what age should oral health assessment begin?

Oral health exams should begin early in a child’s life. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend that a child’s first dental visit occur within six months of the appearance of their first tooth. Your child can also have their first visit by their first birthday, whichever comes first.

This early assessment helps our dentist monitor your child’s health and development as they grow. The evaluation also provides parents with guidance on proper oral care practices to prevent dental issues in the future. Establish your child’s dental home in our family dental practice for the best care possible.
