Family Dentistry

Alpha Dental Center welcomes patients of all ages, Dr. Munal S. Salem and his skilled associates provide personalized care for each patient. The dentists and hygienists here want everyone to be comfortable while receiving gentle, effective care.

 

Pediatric Dentistry

Dental experts believe that children should begin to see a dentist before their adult teeth come in.  A first visit is usually scheduled at about age 3, so that we can monitor oral development and teach young patients the good habits that can sustain their smiles for a lifetime.

Our goal is make early visits as easy and comfortable as possible.  Our hygienists are especially kind and calm with our youngest patients so they can gain confidence in our caregivers.

While children’s teeth need regular cleanings, they may also benefit from fluoride treatments and sealants.  Fluoride, the mineral often found in municipal water supplies, is a mineral that helps prevent tooth decay. Our fluoride washes support the typical patient by helping to make teeth stronger during the critical stages of mouth development.

As children’s teeth emerge, the chewing surface of the molars can be coated with a sealant to help prevent decay. This does not affect the appearance of the child’s teeth or smile.

Senior Services

We also cater to the needs of older adults, with a menu of restorative treatments and tooth replacement choices, which include:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dentures
  • Implants

Many older adults have sensitive gum tissue and this is a consideration in the treatment plans. In addition, we try to devise a treatment plan that suits your health needs while accommodating your budget. Our fully accessible offices are available for patients with differing abilities, and our team is happy to help everyone feel comfortable with us.

Here are some basic guidelines on how to handle common dental emergencies:
  • Toothache – see your dentist as soon as you feel pain or discomfort.
  • Broken, chipped or cracked tooth – rinse your mouth with warm water, apply a cold compress to your face and see your dentist right away. If the tooth was broken or chipped – bring the tooth fragment wrapped in wet gauze or a wet towel.
  • Knocked-Out or Loosened Tooth – due to trauma, call your dentist. If the tooth was knocked out – if at all possible, gently insert the lost tooth back in its socket simply by holding the tooth by the crown using a clean washcloth. (In the event that the tooth is dirty, first rinse the root, but do not scrub it or remove any attached tissue). If reinsertion is not possible, hold the tooth under the tongue and see your dentist immediately.
  • Broken Jaw – apply ice or cold compress to the face, go to your dentist or an emergency center immediately.
  • Bitten Tongue or Lip – clean the area with a wet cloth, apply a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. If bleeding persists or is too excessive, go to your dentist or emergency center.
It is important for good home dental care, it involves brushing and flossing your teeth regularly; and eating a mouth healthy diet, which means foods high in whole grains, fruits and vegetables along with dairy products. It is equally and important to schedule visits with your dentist and/or dental hygienist for regular checkups and cleanings to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
Yes, genetics can also play a role in the health of your teeth and gums. Strong teeth, weak teeth, big teeth, small teeth, crooked teeth, susceptibility to cavities and even the potential to develop gum disease can be passed down from generation to generation. That is why it is so important to see your dentist regularly; your diet, dental care routine and frequency of visits to a dentist can turn around a potentially hopeless situation and develop a lifelong treatment plan, inclusive of habits that will address your potential weak spots.
