At Gentle Dental Care, we take great pride in providing dental services for your family. Our team in Durand, WI, will work with your schedule to provide compassionate dental care for family members of all ages.
Dental care begins as soon as your first tooth erupts. By introducing your child to the dentist early, you can reduce dental anxiety, establish good habits, and learn the best techniques for caring for their teeth. Preventing cavities and gum disease will also ensure their adult teeth grow in with fewer issues. Once the adult teeth are established, Dr. Andre and Dr. Thatcher will check for bite alignment and dental spacing issues and may recommend orthodontics to treat the problem while the jaw is still soft and malleable.
Many teens may become self-conscious about the look of their smile, and we offer a variety of cosmetic treatments that can improve their teeth as well as ensure optimum oral health. Additionally, preventative treatments such as dental sealants can offer years of protection for areas that are most likely to develop cavities, and we often recommend them for kids and adults alike to protect teeth from decay.
As you age, your risk for cavities increases. Your body may produce less saliva to stave off bacteria, or certain conditions and medications can lower your body’s natural defenses. Additionally, your tooth enamel can become worn down over time. Dr. Andre and Dr. Thatcher will monitor changes in your teeth carefully. We can offer restorations to protect fragile teeth from infections and decay and treat issues like gum disease that can kill soft tissues and cause your teeth to shift in your mouth, so you can keep a happy, healthy smile as long as possible.
Damage to your teeth and gums can be permanent, and issues like gum disease can lead to tooth loss and infections in your bone if they aren’t treated promptly. By maintaining your routine dental visits, you can save time and money on your care, and you’ll always have the confidence to show off your smile.
