Family dentistry is a practice of dentistry that encompasses a number of dental services for people of all ages. A family dentist provides specialized dental care to infants, children, teenagers, adults, and aged individuals too. Also, we provide dental treatment to almost all types of dental concerns.
If you or your child need dental treatment, our dentists will help ensure good oral health. With regular exams and cleanings, our dentist will be able to monitor your oral health and detect potential problems before they turn into serious health issues.
Cosmetic dentistry is about making positive improvements to your teeth and smile. This often includes procedures such as teeth whitening, composite fillings, dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and more. Cosmetic dentistry can improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, misshapen, too small, or too large.
As endodontists, our dentists perform root canal treatment. Endodontics is the area of dentistry focused on treating the pulp, the innermost layer of a tooth. When a tooth becomes injured or infected, endodontic treatment is necessary to save the tooth.
At our dental practice, we use various orthodontic modalities to help patients achieve straighter, healthier smiles. We offer traditional braces, as well as Invisalign, which straightens teeth using clear, removable aligners. Invisalign can be a good alternative to braces for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment.
Some dental conditions require oral surgery to help fix tooth decay, gum disease, or injuries to the bones or soft tissues of the mouth. When your dentist recommends oral surgery, it may be for one of the following reasons:
- Gum disease (periodontal disease)
- Severe tooth decay (caries)
- Trauma or injury to the mouth
- Impacted wisdom teeth
- Facial trauma
- Impacted canines or teeth
- Cleft palate
- Facial birth defects
Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease (periodontal disease). This includes diseases of the gum and the bone surrounding the teeth. Some of the procedures performed are deep cleaning, laser therapy, gum graft, etc.
Prosthodontics is the dental specialty that deals with prosthodontic procedures, which are artificial restorations to replace missing or deficient teeth. These procedures range from dental crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, and dentures, which replace missing teeth.
Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on caring for children’s teeth. This includes providing comprehensive preventive care, performing restorative treatments, and offering educational services. This service is essential to maintain a healthy mouth from a very young age.
Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option for patients. They are titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth and are surgically implanted into the jawbone. When they are surgically implanted, they stimulate the jaw, which triggers bone production. After the implant has integrated with your jawbone, an impression is taken, and a prosthetic crown is placed.
