The services we offer to you and your family fall into three main categories: General, Cosmetic, and Family Dentistry.
From examinations and regular cleanings, to fillings, crowns, and extractions, you will find the care at Family and Cosmetic Dentistry an easy, upbeat experience worth recommending to others. Some common general dentistry procedures include: • Fillings • Root Canal Therapy • Dental Crowns (Including single visit crowns) • Extractions • Routine Cleanings
Dentistry is not just about avoiding pain. It is also about making your smile look its best. And the days of settling for missing, chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth have passed. We have durable, affordable choices available to you to make your smile look perfect.
Cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer include: • Teeth whitening: Are you sick of looking at your photos only to have yellow teeth staring back at you? Our teeth whitening procedures let you whiten your teeth to your own degree of perfection. • Dental Crowns or Veneers: If you have a cracked, discolored, or misshapen tooth that always looks out of place, then a natural-looking dental crown to replace the tooth or a porcelain veneer to cover it up might be just what the doctor orders. • Implants or Dentures: If you have missing teeth, it may be embarrassing to show off your grin. Between implants and dentures, there are several options available, and Dr. Childs can help you make the best, longest-lasting choice.
The first experiences a child has at a dental office can make or break their attitude about going to the dentist, as well as their commitment to dental hygiene, for the whole rest of their lives. The relaxed, child-friendly atmosphere at our office encourages kids to feel at ease while they visit us. Our hygienists are well versed at training kids to develop good habits, helping your children become the strongest brushers and flossers they can be. And our affordable fees make it possible for the whole family to receive the regular care they need.
Tips to help your kids love flossing and brushing: • Start early: You can start brushing your kids teeth as soon as they come out. Kids should begin flossing as soon as they have two teeth that touch. This can be as early as age 2 1/2. • Set the example: If your child sees that dental hygiene is a priority to you, they will be much more likely to make it important in their lives also. • Have them do it themselves, with supervision: By about age seven or eight, you can step back and let them brush and floss themselves. By checking in with them each night, you can ensure they are making it a part of their nightly regime. • Ready, set, brush! Have an eggtimer in the bathroom and give your kids a certain amount of time to brush. That way you know they are not just swiping a brush across their teeth and calling it quits.
