Preventive and Family Dentistry
Many people don’t realize that oral health contributes to overall wellness. At Citracado Dental, we consider your whole oral system, including your mouth, gums, and bite. We use preventive dentistry and general dental care to resolve issues like tooth decay, teeth grinding, and TMJ dysfunction. Let us restore total-mouth harmony so that you can enjoy your beautiful smile long-term.
Protecting Your Oral Health
Our general dentists will construct a hygiene plan specifically for your situation, which we can determine after a comprehensive initial exam. At each appointment, we look for signs of trouble, such as gum disease, oral cancer, and tooth decay. Periodontal disease has been linked to an increased risk of stroke, osteoporosis, and heart attack, so our team works vigilantly to maintain healthy gum tissue. If we find signs of gum disease, our periodontist and Registered Dental Hygientist will work with you to stop the progression and re-establish good oral health.
Bring the Kids
As veteran general dentists, we have experience treating children, and we look forward to caring for the youngest members of your family. We understand that children need extra gentle care and lots of reassurance so that they see visiting the dentist in a positive light. Beginning with the first visit, around age three, we will take time to explain what we do and ensure that your children feel relaxed in our care. Your child’s dentist may suggest fluoride or sealants as an added measure of protection.
