General Dentistry

We are pleased to be able to treat every member of a family – from little children to senior citizens. – with care appropriate to the individual’s needs, objectives and budget. Dentists and hygienists work together to accomplish the best outcomes.

Pediatrics

Starting when your child turns 3, we welcome him or her to our office and carefully check on the development of the smile that will be your child’s lifelong greeting.  Our kind and gentle hygienists teach careful brushing that becomes a life-long habit, preserving teeth and enhancing smiles.

Children may also benefit from the application of sealants and fluoride treatments when their adult teeth come in, to help strengthen tooth structure and avoid early decay. While the mineral fluoride promotes the growth of strong teeth, sealants provide a physical barrier on the chewing surfaces of teeth and help prevent decay from food particles that land there. Sealants are generally invisible once applied to the teeth. (Occasionally, adults may require the same type of treatment.)

If young athletes play contact sports, they may need mouth guards to prevent broken teeth. These guards are custom-fitted for each child.

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.
