Children's Dental Care
Our expert dental team believes that learning good oral health habits should begin at an early age. Our dentists treat patients as young as three years old, and we pride ourselves on making sure that our young patients feel at ease in our office. In order to help protect your children's oral health, our doctors offer preventive care such as sealants and fluoride treatments. Sealants are a clear plastic coating applied to the teeth to protect them from decay, and fluoride treatments help strengthen tooth enamel. While these treatments are beneficial for patients of all ages, they are particularly effective for preventing dental problems in children. Additionally, our family-friendly staff will demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques to teach children how to care for their teeth at home.
Dental Care for Older Adults
We understand the strong connection between oral health and overall health, which is an important consideration when treating older patients. As we age, gum health becomes even more important, and we offer a full range of periodontal treatments to address these issues. We also offer comprehensive restorative treatments, so that you can continue to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
We perform dental implant surgery to address missing teeth. Dental implants provide the ultimate support for dentures and other restorations, keeping them firmly in place as you chew and speak. Implants also preserve the integrity of the jaw bone, which is vital as you age. Patients may require bone grafting prior to undergoing dental implant surgery to provide adequate support for dental implants. We will carefully assess your teeth and gums to determine if dental implants are right for you.
Sedation Options for Patients of All Ages
Our practice offers both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to help ease the anxiety of our patients. Nitrous oxide sedation involves wearing a mask that delivers a mixture of oxygen and nitrogen. This type of sedation is very safe, and is often used for treating children undergoing dental procedures. The amount of nitrous oxide can be carefully monitored, and the effects wear off shortly after treatment, making it a safe option for children.
Oral conscious sedation involves administering an anti-anxiety sedative, which produces a feeling of relaxation. This form of sedation is stronger than nitrous oxide, and is an effective option for many adults. It is especially useful when treating senior patients who have painful medical conditions, such as arthritis or back issues, that make sitting in a dentist chair an uncomfortable experience. We want all of our patients feel as comfortable as possible, and we will discuss your sedation options when you visit.
