Preventative Family Dentistry

In addition to providing you and your family with the oral health care you need, we are also devoted to providing you with ongoing education on steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of issues developing.

This is especially true for our pediatric dental care. Our staff is trained to helping you as new parent learn and implement the best oral care for your newborn, especially with the maintenance of baby teeth. By doing so can have an important impact on developing proper chewing habits, speech, and certainly establishing good general oral health.

In addition to monitoring their growth and ensuring your child is reaching important milestones, we are also committed to educating your child in proper oral health care habits.

Adult Dental Services

Along with providing the support to ensure your child receives the care they need to develop and maintain their oral health, we are equally committed to providing you, the parent, the care you need as your dental needs change. As we age, we will inevitably have to address oral health issues that are new to us. At Cherrydale Family Dental, we can offer a comprehensive range of dental services that are often associated with age. These include oral implants, periodontal therapy, and cosmetic dental procedures that are designed to restore your healthy smile. Most importantly, we can provide the continuity in the care you receive and will base our treatments on our established relationship that is based on an understanding of your unique dental history.

Regular Family Examinations

One of the best ways to maintain the oral health of you and your family is to schedule regular family exams. Most of our regular exams will include evaluation of the following:

  • Signs of any tooth decay: Special instruments will probe to look for evidence of any tooth decay on the surfaces of your teeth.
  • X-rays: Regular X-rays identify conditions under the surface of your gums for early detection of cysts, tumors, decay, or bone loss.
  • Signs of gum disease: The gums and bone around your teeth will be examined for signs of periodontal disease, something that sneaks up on many patients.
  • Status of existing restorations: We will review the status of any existing crowns, fillings, or other dental restorations.
  • Oral cancer screening: Examination of the gums, lips, neck, throat, and face for early warning signs of oral cancer.

By scheduling these regular exams, you can significantly reduce the likelihood of you or anyone in your family developing unexpected dental health issues.

Some common additional preventative services we provide include:

  • Applying Dental Sealants
  • Applying Fluoride Treatment
  • Exercising Periodontal Therapy
  • Developing Mouth Guards and Night Guards

Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Patients may explore cosmetic dental procedures for a variety of reasons, but the most common involve trying to correct or address the following issues:

  • The Discoloration or Staining of your teeth
  • Having Crooked or overcrowded teeth
  • A Cracked or Broken tooth
  • Disproportionately Sized or misshapen teeth
  • A Missing tooth
  • Uneven Spacing and Gaps in teeth

Additional cosmetic services we will provide include:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Bonding
  • Veneers
  • Bridges
  • Crowns

Emergency Dental Services

When an emergency dental situation occurs, it is advantageous to have a plan in place. It can be difficult to know the difference between having a dental issue that does not need immediate attention to one that does.

Although many emergency dental situations are the result of unexpected accidents that result in a tooth that is knocked out, cracked, or broken, emergency care can also be required due to an untreated oral health issue that has progressed to the point of being uncomfortable. To avoid this situation, it is important to practice good oral hygiene habits and schedule a regular dental exams every six months, as doing so will allow us to address problems before they develop. Also, if you notice any aches or pains that continue to get worse, do not wait until it is too late to have us exam it.

Do You Know How to Brush Your Teeth?

At Cherrydale Family Dental, one preventative measure we focus on is making sure all our patients know the proper way to brush their teeth.

Here are the simple basic steps:

  • Position your brush at a 45-degree angle toward the gums.
  • Gently move the brush back and forth across your teeth in short circular motions.
  • Brush the front surfaces, the back surfaces, and the tops of the teeth, making sure to reach the back molars where food can build up in the crevices while chewing.
