Preventative Care is Essential
Preventative care provides the basis for both your oral health and our dental practice. Regular dental care should start as a child, teaching kids the importance of caring for their teeth. We schedule appointments to be flexible with your busy schedule and accommodate families so they can come to get their dental care together.
We recommend bringing your child to the dentist within six months of their first tooth erupting or before they reach a year of age. Early dental care helps children get comfortable at the dentist office. They realize there’s nothing to be scared of, lessening the chance of dental fear developing in the future. They also learn how to brush their teeth properly and how important it is to take care of them.
Preventative care allows us to detect potential problems early. Many dental problems are unnoticeable to patients until they’re more complex or they feel pain. With diagnostic imaging and other tools, we can see the warning signs of things like tooth decay. Earlier detection means less invasive and costly treatment.
Age-Specific Dental Care
Different ages deal with different dental problems. For children, tooth decay is the most rampant struggle. Children’s diets are usually higher in sugar, and they cannot thoroughly clean their teeth. We teach them the best brushing techniques and the importance of a balanced diet. Dental sealants can provide an extra layer to protect the tooth from decay.
For teens and young adults, crooked teeth and wisdom teeth are more prominent. Wisdom teeth erupt in the late teens or early twenties. Because of evolution, our mouths usually don’t have enough space for this extra set of molars. We monitor the growth of your wisdom teeth to determine if removal is necessary. Left to erupt, the teeth can cause pain and cramped, crooked teeth.
Crooked teeth are much more than an aesthetic issue. They can actually bring harm to your oral health. We want you to have a smile that you’re proud to show off and that functions properly. Dr. Romay is a provider of both Invisalign and SureSmile clear aligner systems to move your teeth into the ideal alignment discreetly.
As we age, we’re more likely to lose teeth. Years of wear and tear and lifestyle habits take a toll on our mouths. Like bones and muscles, they face struggles with aging. We offer full dental implant services at our office, as well as other methods of tooth replacement. We’ll work with you to determine the best choice to replace your missing teeth.
