Dr. Morris can treat age-specific oral health issues and ensure patient health throughout their life.
Routine Children’s Dental Care
We know that dental visits can seem intimidating and scary to young children, but preparing your child for this visit can get them excited about the dentist. Before visiting the dentist, you can explain what the hygienist or dentist does and even demo what will happen during a cleaning. Playing with your child can assuage any anxiety about the dentist. We will provide simple dental cleaning and examination at your child’s first visit. We can also answer any questions you have about their care.
Fluoride and Sealants
As children grow older, they may require fluoride treatments or dental sealants that help prevent cavities and tooth decay. Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens the tooth enamel. A fluoride treatment consists of a gel or varnish that we place on the teeth. Applying fluoride after a cleaning lessens the chance of a dental infection.
Dental sealants are protective coatings that we apply to the molars. Molars are more prone to infection and cavities because they are difficult to clean. Applying a sealant can prevent bacteria from entering the enamel and stop the early stages of tooth decay. Patients between the ages of 6 and 12 are candidates for sealants because the first molars erupt around age 6, and the second molars erupt at age 12.
Dental Care for Aging Smiles
Did you know that your smile can age over time? Problems like tooth stains, dental injuries, and even tooth loss can prematurely age your smile. We help patients with aging smiles restore their teeth and gums’ appearance, function, and health. Treatments like whitening, veneers, bonding, crowns, and implants restore patients’ oral health.
Professional whitening treatment can lift stains from the outer enamel, while dental veneers or bonding treatments can address discoloration and injuries. Dental crowns can also address tooth wear or damage, adding structure and strength to cap off teeth. If you lose a tooth from an accident or decay, we can provide one or more dental implants to permanently replace teeth at the root.
Implants are posts that fuse to the jaw bone to create support for crowns, bridges, and dentures. If you notice signs of aging in your smile, contact our office. We will find the right treatments to repair dental injuries, brighten stained teeth, and replace lost teeth.
