While you want to make sure everyone in your family has a healthy smile, you may be aware of how you might have somewhat different needs as individuals. The difference in oral health needs between parents and children can be particularly important to acknowledge, particularly if you want to make sure your kids are truly safe against tooth decay. At our Rochester, MN dentist’s office, we are prepared to help everyone in your family stay safe against problems that might affect your smile and dental health. For kids, we can provide a combination of guidance and general preventive care, which can help them start developing good habits that they carry with them into adulthood. For our adult patients, we offer important services during routine dental exams, as well as assistance with any problems that might arise over time.
A Healthy Smile Has Value At Any Age
At every age, the health of your teeth are important. Problems with poor oral hygiene at an early age can actually interfere with smile development, and may lead to issues with premature tooth loss, pain, and infections that affect adult teeth. As you age, the health and quality of your smile can affect your confidence. Problems that go untreated can lead to complications that hurt your ability to maintain your general health. Tooth decay can lead to pain and the spread of bacteria, while poor periodontal health can change your risk for tooth loss, and make you more vulnerable to heart disease!
Finding A Practice Where Your Kids Feel Comfortable
Creating the right atmosphere for kids means creating a space where they feel safe, as well as a space where you trust that their oral health needs are being met. We can work with younger children to create an environment where they are happy to be, which can make them more receptive to the care they receive. In addition to providing cleanings and evaluations, we can give kids instructions that help them protect themselves at home. As they continue to see their dentist, kids can enjoy instructions and preventive services that make them less likely to need restorative dental work.
Stay On Top Of Your Oral Health Needs
Are you doing enough to keep your smile healthy? At every routine dental exam, your dentist can evaluate the condition of your teeth. If it is necessary to do so, we can place a dental filling to address dental decay, or talk to you about the placement of a crown for a cavity. Because we use CEREC technology to produce dental crowns, we can make this placement more convenient by having a custom restoration ready for you in one day!
