We specialize in family dentistry, and are familiar with patients of all ages. Do not hesitate to contact us, whether you are looking for a dentist who understands how to handle children's dental concerns, or someone who is more well versed with the special oral health needs that aging can bring.
Dental Care for Children and TeensAs we know, the "tooth fairy" eventually visits all children. In general, they will begin to lose "baby" teeth around age six or seven. At this point, permanent teeth will begin to break through their gums. Keep in mind that this is an incredibly important time for your child! You want to make sure that their forming teeth are as healthy and strong as possible. In addition to coming in and seeing us regularly, you can also encourage good bone growth by encouraging your children to eat a diet rich in fruits, veggies, and calcium.
Teens should have a good handle on their oral health, but it's always a good idea to ensure that they see a dentist regularly. We can help make sure that their teeth (and their smiles) look great and are in good condition.
Dental Care for AdultsYour job is not over once you hit a certain age! As an adult, you will begin to be at a higher risk for periodontal disease than you were as a child or teen. That means that good oral health is more important than ever! Continue brushing twice a day, flossing at least once a day, avoiding sweet snacks and smoking, and ensure that you see us regularly.
Dental Care for SeniorsOur dentists are experienced with the dental pain that becomes common in the lives of many older adults. Visit us regularly to ensure that you are keeping an eye on any potential symptoms of oral cancer, periodontal disease, or dry mouth.
