Children can be seen by a dentist as early as their first birthday. We recommend all kids be examined by their third birthday. During these early visits, the child will be monitored for proper eruption of their baby teeth. As the child gets more familiar and comfortable with the dental setting, cleanings, topical fluoride treatment and x-rays will be introduced. Education for both the parent and child will be emphasized during all visits.
Visit our children’s page for more information.
Dentistry for Teens and Adults
For everyone the importance of regular dental check-ups cannot be overemphasized. In addition to checking your teeth for decay and cracks, your dentist looks also for signs of diseases such as oral cancer. Alert your dentist to any sensitive teeth or gums, sores, swelling or discoloration that you find on your tongue, lips, cheek, throat, jawbone, or palate. Brushing and flossing daily, eating a balanced diet, and regular visits to your dentist will help you maintain a healthy smile.Â Today, many adults are enhancing their smiles with braces, veneers and whitening products to keep their smiles young and healthy looking. Talk to Dr. Austin about these options.
Dentistry for Seniors
Certain conditions can occur in seniors that would not normally be found in younger individuals and that can affect the health of their teeth, as well as their overall physical well being.
Usually, there is more than one restorative solution for repairing broken-down and missing teeth. A consultation with Dr. Austin will help you choose the best restorative solution for your situation. You can help keep your permanent teeth longer by replacing missing teeth, brushing and flossing daily, and having regular dental check-ups and professional tooth cleanings. Stopping smoking or chewing tobacco and maintaining good nutrition will also help you achieve the optimum in oral health.
