Full Service Dental Care:
Prenatal Dental Care / Maternal Dental Care
Pregnant women know they need to eat right, take prenatal vitamins and go for regular appointments to their obstetrician or midwife. What many expectant moms don’t realize is that visiting their dentist is just as important. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that every expectant mother receive a comprehensive oral health evaluation during pregnancy.
Pregnancy Gingivitis is a common dental issue that many women experience. Numerous studies show that Pregnancy Gingivitis is linked to low birth weight babies, preterm labor and gestational diabetes.
Digital x-rays and most common dental treatments are safe to conduct during pregnancy. We take every precaution to insure that our patients are protected.
Our Prenatal Dental Care Package includes:
- Exam & Cleaning
- Instructions on caring for teeth during pregnancy & caring for baby’s teeth
- Dental gift pack for baby
- FREE first dental visit for baby
For more information on prenatal dentistry please visit our Maternity Dentistry page.
Pediatric Dental Care
We are committed to providing our youngest patients with a positive dental experience with no psychological trauma. Our pediatric care primarily focuses on the prevention of childhood tooth decay and teaching proper dental care. We offer pediatric patients the use of iPods loaded with kids’ movies, a video game console, and we end their visits with a selection from our fully-stocked “prize box”.
Root Canal Therapy / Endodontics
Root Canal Therapy is a procedure done to prevent pain and eliminate infection from inside a tooth. It often allows us to keep a natural tooth instead of removing and replacing it. We routinely perform painless root canals using the latest in materials and techniques.
We like to preserve teeth whenever feasible but sometimes teeth do need to be removed. As with our other services, we are committed to making these procedures as comfortable as possible.
