When you decide to buy a house, you take into consideration more than just the cost. You also think about the size, the amenities, how well it was built, and how safe, nice, and convenient the location is. You’ll be considering how each member of your family will make their home there.
If you’re a parent looking to buy a car for your family, you don’t just look at the cost, either. A BMW Z4, a Jeep Wrangler, or a Mini Cooper might be the car you really want, but it’s not the most practical car to buy if you have kids. Chances are you’ll pay attention to the size, the mileage, the safety features, and other options it can offer your entire family.
A One-Stop Shop for Every Age
When it comes to choosing a dentist for your family, why would you consider just one factor in making your decision when there are a host of things that each member of your family needs?
Look no further than Grand Dental. We are your one-stop shop for your family’s dental needs. We do our best to make your family comfortable and provide them with the dental services they need, whether they are 2, 42, or 82 years old.
You don’t have to worry about going to another dentist as you get older—we’ll get to know you and your family personally so that we can offer the best care for you based on your history as well as your current needs.
Exams and Procedures for Your Whole Family
Aside from providing you with a relaxing environment, friendly and well-trained staff, cutting-edge technology, sedation dentistry to help your anxiety, and flexible office hours for your busy schedule, what services do we offer you based on your age?
Each stage of life has different needs and concerns—babies don’t have teeth yet, while senior citizens may be concerned about keeping theirs—and this is something we understand and know how to look for.
Just like you regularly take your baby to a pediatrician, you should also take him or her to a dentist. Babies may not have as many teeth as we do, but did you know that even they can get cavities?
As soon as their teeth come in, babies are susceptible to getting cavities, or what’s known as Baby Bottle Tooth Decay. If your baby drinks formula, fruit juice, or even breast milk, the buildup of sugar from these liquids can start to have bad effects on their teeth, like when they continue to suck on a bottle after you put them to bed at night.
Bring your baby in to see us when his or her teeth start coming in, and we’ll make sure your little one’s teeth are clean and cavity free! We can also provide you with important tips for things like what toothpastes and toothbrushes to use, and how to gently but effectively brush their soft gums and little teeth!
Just because a kid’s teeth aren’t permanent doesn’t mean taking care of them isn’t important. This is a vital time to establish healthy oral habits that they will keep for life, but it’s also a common time for problems to pop up, especially cavities.
To help prevent cavities, we can take a look at your child’s mouth and determine whether sealants can help them. Sealants are a clear protective plastic coating that we essentially paint onto the back teeth, which are notorious for getting cavities since they’re harder to brush and floss. If your child has cavities, we can fix them with fillings.
Other common problems we can help your child fix include losing teeth prematurely, which can lead to spacing issues, and dental emergencies like chipped teeth from sports. We even have a dentist on call for emergencies.
We care about your child’s safety. If your children need X-rays, Grand Dental uses digital X-ray technology so that we don’t have to expose them to as much radiation. We even offer mercury-free fillings if you have any concerns about mercury exposure (read more about this in our recent blog).
Because a child’s mouth changes so much, it’s important to take your kids in for their regular checkups. Ask us for tips on making sure your adolescents keep their teeth healthy.
Most teenagers have their full set of adult teeth by age 13 or so. These are the last set they are going to get, so it’s vital that they take care of them so that they can last a lifetime.
Because teenagers have their permanent teeth, it’s a good time to consider whether they need to get them straightened. If your teen doesn’t want the embarrassment or hassle of braces, Invisalign may be an excellent solution—no need to go to an orthodontist for that because we offer it right here in our office!
As your teenager gets older, bring them in for regular exams so that we can monitor their wisdom teeth and help determine whether we should remove them.
Adults have a wide range of dental concerns, from preventative care to cosmetic dentistry.
At each regular cleaning, we will check you for any issues like cavities, gum disease, and other problems that, if they continue, may lead to tooth loss or damage. If you are pregnant, it’s very important that you visit us because you will be more susceptible to things like gingivitis.
We also encourage you to talk to us about any cosmetic concerns you have, like stained teeth, uneven teeth, or anything else that prevents you from having the smile you want. We offer many solutions for your cosmetic dentistry concerns, from whitening to veneers, Lumineers, and Invisalign.
We understand that you’re a busy person, with work, running errands, picking up your kids from school, going to their extracurricular activities, making dinner, etc. Who has time for the dentist with all of this going on?
Thankfully, we offer many procedures that provide you with quality solutions but in an accelerated time frame, like Teeth in a Day and CEREC One-Day Dental Crowns. Tell us about your scheduling concerns if you need any dental work done.
If you’re anxious about coming to the dentist like many adults are, we can offer sedation via inhalation or pills to help calm your nerves and ease your worries. Depending on the procedure, we also have ceiling-mounted TVs with headphones for you to enjoy while we’re working in your mouth.
And did we mention our massaging dental chairs?
With the wear and tear of age on an older adult’s teeth, plus the increased risk of bone loss, this age group often has unique dental concerns. We see geriatric patients regularly and perform many procedures that can restore their teeth, like crowns, or replace their teeth, like natural-looking dentures, partial dentures, and mini implants.
We also see older patients who, thanks in part to good hygiene and regular checkups, have no major dental concerns at all.
