Preventive dentistry is the area of oral care that involves education and treatment that aims to maintain your teeth and gums. Good oral health is an important factor contributing to overall health.
Restorative dentistry is all dentistry which serves to restore a tooth to a strong and healthy state. It is important to start treatment early when teeth are decayed or cracked so that extensive destruction or loss of teeth can be avoided.
We offer dentistry for children of all ages. Our warm and friendly team strives to make appointments as fun and easy as possible. We are happy to offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation to ensure a comfortable appointment for children who may be nervous. We recommend families bring in their child for their first appointment either within six months of the first tooth erupting or when they reach the age of one. It is important to find and diagnose any problems early so they can be fixed right away. It is also valuable to discuss what to do at home to ensure parents are optimally caring for their child’s teeth and mouth.
When a tooth cannot be saved due to extensive destruction, infection, or decay it must be removed to avoid worsening infection. Our goal is to make this process as comfortable as possible. We use gentle techniques to both avoid patient discomfort and to minimize trauma to surrounding bone and tissue. This is important in case the patient elects to have an implant-supported tooth replacement. We also offer Oral Surgery services at our office, where we routinely perform extractions of wisdom teeth under IV sedation for additional patients’ comfort and reduced anxiety.
