Children's Dental Care
The first dental visit should occur during the first year, and certainly as new teeth begin to appear. This is to help assure proper oral hygiene is happening and to assure the proper bacteria are present in the mouth. It is also to help parents and caregivers set the proper stage for a good start in oral health and to demonstrate proper home care practices to prevent early childhood caries – the most common childhood disease 2nd to the common cold.
Adolescent / Teen Dental Care
Adolescent and teen care focuses on the important issues of growth and development, airway development, and of course having strong healthy teeth and avoiding tooth decay.
Adult Dental Care
Care for adults has its special concerns of general oral / dental health and well-being, adequate airway management (sleep apnea), cosmetic dental care, management of the dental bite and headaches, and optimum gum health. These issues are compounded with the presence of any general health complications.
Senior Dental Care
Care for the oral health of our seniors and elderly – is an increasingly important aspect of oral healthcare. As people age and live longer, special needs related to dry mouth (medication side-effects), gum disease and tooth decay, missing teeth, chewing and nutrition, and cancer – must be carefully managed. General medical conditions can seriously impact oral and dental health, and vice-versa.
