We recommend that children be taken to the dentist at any age that you suspect a problem. It is important to get your child off to a good start, so we recommend that you bring them along for an adult hygiene appointment one or more times to get them familiar with our office. Then, when they are more receptive we will try to do an exam and possibly begin cleaning their teeth. This can be as early as 1 ½-2 years but more often by 3 or 4.
Invisalign consists of removable clear trays. Clear braces are clear cemented plastic or porcelain brackets on your teeth. The only visible part is the wire or any metal placed on the back teeth. For more information visit www.invisalign.com.
Yes our practice does do dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent metal device designed to replace missing teeth. The device is usually made out of titanium and is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. A dental implant is designed to act as the tooth root and can anchor an artificial tooth such as a crown, bridge or denture.
