Child/Adult Dental Care
At Dental Impressions, we offer dentistry for the entire family- regardless of the age of the patient. Our team is experienced and excels in caring for patients as young as toddlers as well as adult patients. That’s why the majority of our patients are entire families who need care for a variety of ages and dental needs.
At Dental Impressions, we believe that the dental care and treatment that an adult needs is vastly different from that of a child. We treat children differently and according to their needs at our office- from the chairside manner we give, to the dental services we provide.
Our staff is trained to provide fun, relaxing and comforting dental services for our younger patients. We know that children can be anxious and may have a fear of the dental office. That’s why our staff members work hard to make them feel at ease when they visit us. We also do not push for services that may not be needed, including X-rays. Unnecessary dental treatment for children can increase the time they must be in the chair, the cost of the visit and the child’s anxiety. It can also be unsafe for them to undergo X-rays or treatment that is not needed. Trust our team to provide only the necessary work that will keep your child’s mouth in optimal health.
We are also committed to providing oral health education to parents. The following are several tips for patients in order to keep your child’s smile healthy between visits.
- Brush at least twice a day and floss at least once (always brush before bed)
- Decrease the amount of sugary drinks and snacks your child eats
- Encourage your child to drink water throughout the day
- Monitor your child’s brushing habits to make sure that they brush for at least 2 minutes and that they are not brushing too hard or too light.
- Make regular visits to the dentist- every 6 months is the recommended time for all children patients
Dentistry for Adults
Our team is qualified and skilled at providing dentistry for adults as well as children. Whether you are a young adult or a senior citizen, we provide customized dental treatment that focuses on prevention of oral diseases. If you come to us in need of treatment for oral disease or damage done to your mouth, we provide restorative and cosmetic dentistry to repair your smile and even improve the look of your teeth and mouth.
Family / General Dentistry Services
General Checkups/Cleanings– We recommend scheduling your dental appointment with us every 6 months. This ensures that your smile stays in tip-top shape. During each dental check-up, our hygienists will provide a thorough cleaning that will remove any plaque/tarter buildup and will examine your oral structures for any signs of disease or other dental problems.
Sealants– Sealants are more common for our younger patients but can be very effective for adults as well. This procedure entails placing a thin piece of plastic over the chewing surface of back molars. This plastic, protective covering prevents against cavities and keeps your smile healthy and decay-free.
Fluoride– Our fluoride treatment is important for patients of all ages. Fluoride strengthens the enamel of your teeth and this helps to prevent against cavities.
