Benefits of Having a Family Dentist

Having a family dentist to cater to your loved ones' dental needs offers you many benefits. These include convenience and specialized care, including offering a range of age-specific services under the same roof. Here are other advantages of having a family dentist:

Early detection of oral health problems - When you bring your children in for routine exams, we can detect oral health problems like dental misalignment or cavities at an early age. The earlier you get professional intervention, the better your chances of successful and lasting treatment.

Encourage good oral health habits - Our family dentists focus on cultivating healthy habits like proper oral hygiene. As such, you can encourage healthy oral health practices at home that minimize dentist visits in the future.

Prevention and treatment advice - With our family dentists, you can get professional advice on how to take care of your teeth and prevent common issues like gum disease and tooth decay. We also keep an eye out for shared medical and dental issues between family members to prevent oral health problems from developing.

At our practice, we walk with you throughout your oral health journey to ensure you get the services you need to solve your dental problems and maintain your smile for a lifetime.

Gentle and Fun Dental Care for Kids

We involve kids directly in our treatments to protect their oral health and cultivate healthy oral care habits. Our dentists tailor their services to kids' dental care needs and provide a safe, comfortable, and fun environment for our young patients.

Our dental services for kids include:

Pulpotomies – A pulpotomy treats infected or decayed teeth by removing the infected area, including the pulp. The procedure prevents the decay from spreading and preserves the natural tooth structure.

Fillings – We use dental fillings to repair slightly fractured, broken, or decayed teeth.

Wisdom Teeth Removal – Our San Francisco family dentists are gentle when extracting wisdom teeth to minimize discomfort. Nitrous oxide sedation for kids is available when requested.

Fluorides and sealants are also available whenever necessary. Regardless of your little one’s dental issues, we use our extensive training and skill to provide solutions and never force a treatment.

Creating a Warm Environment for Young Patients

We understand that dentist visits can be scary for kids. Our team focuses on creating a warm, welcoming environment for our young patients to feel relaxed and confident at all times. While we treat one patient at a time and focus on developing personal relationships, family appointments are also available.

Our practice is kid-friendly, and our team ensures children enjoy a positive experience. The dentists use kid-friendly and age-appropriate language to explain matters to kids for easy comprehension. We also provide office tours to kids who come to our practice and explain the various dental equipment.

Caring for the Smiles of Your Children and Teens

kids dentist san franciscoAs your reliable family dentist in San Francisco, we strive to safeguard your children’s oral health by equipping them with the knowledge they need to take care of their teeth. Our team educates kids about proper oral hygiene to prevent the need for complex dental treatment in the future. We provide valuable oral health guidance that kids can carry over to adulthood, creating a solid foundation for lasting oral health.

Kids experience significant dental development in their teenage years. We work with an orthodontist to monitor your child's dental development for orthodontic issues and identify any problems before they become more complicated. We discuss with you any existing structural issues and work hand-in-hand with the orthodontist to correct them. In case of dental misalignment, we offer removable aligners to responsible kids who comply with the requirements.

Dentistry for Adults and Seniors

In addition to providing pediatric dentistry services, we also cater to adults and seniors. Our San Francisco family dentistry services for adults and the elderly include:

Oral Appliances - We provide oral appliances like night guards to alleviate bruxism, snoring, and sleep apnea. If you struggle with TMJ disorder, our dentists have received special training to address it.

Gum Health - Our team uses laser technology for gum therapy to deeply clean infected gums and promote healing.

Oral Sedation - Oral sedation usually comes in the form of pills that you ingest before your dental procedure to help you relax and reduce discomfort.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Our cosmetic dentistry services are available to help you improve the appearance of your smile. They are ideal for imperfections like dental misalignment, tooth discoloration, misshapen teeth, and chipped or worn-out teeth. You can also improve a gummy smile or correct unwanted tooth gaps with cosmetic dentistry.

Extraction - Although we focus on saving your natural tooth structure, we also perform tooth extractions whenever necessary. This includes extraction of wisdom teeth and impacted teeth.

For senior family members, our friendly and compassionate team can help you get the dental care you need to safeguard your oral health and preserve your natural teeth whenever possible. Regular professional cleanings are especially critical in preventing gum disease and tooth decay that may result in tooth loss. Our team also provides various dental restorations, including dental implants, to repair the fullness of your smile when needed.
