Your customized oral health regimen will also depend on your age. We'll check our younger patients' dental progress and for the emergence of cavities and similar troubles. For those at later life stages, we'll help handle decay, enamel erosion, and other problems that may arise in this age group.

Our compassionate family care sets younger patients on the road to long-lasting dental health and a spectacularly pearly smile

Cleanings are an essential aspect of your child's dental care, and we strive to create a comfortable environment for all our young patients. We understand how vital this is for your loved ones' future health, as children that are comfortable in such settings are likelier to pursue routine exams and cleanings as they grow older. Additionally, correct cleaning habits formed while young are more likely to remain a part of their lives well into adolescence and beyond, setting them up with a beautiful smile for many years to come.

And that's not all: we also offer additional dental services to boost your youngster's lovely smile. A polishing treatment can add a brilliant sheen while also supplying the nourishing fluoride that strengthens the teeth and helps fight off decay. And, since decay is a pressing concern for children (who may not always practice proper cleaning habits and may consume sugary foods and drinks), we also offer dental sealants. This quick procedure seals the teeth with a thin, clear coat, keeping food particles out and thwarting bacterial growth to halt decay.

We're excited to offer you and your loved ones comprehensive, detail-attentive dentistry services

But no matter your age, or the age of your loved ones, we're eager to provide comprehensive care for all our patients. And our experienced team has learned what to look for in different demographics in State College. PA. For example, as the years roll by, we're all a bit more likely to develop gum disease, aka gingivitis. Even those who take great care of their teeth could be at risk, as bacteria accumulate in the harder-to-clean nooks and crannies, like between the surfaces of neighboring teeth.

Once the bacteria take hold, gum disease advances gradually and invisibly. So, sufferers are unlikely to know it until it develops into a more severe form called periodontitis, or periodontal disease. As the sticky bacterial coating (plaque) on the teeth hardens into tartar, it causes gum recession. Left untreated, it damages the gums, loosens the teeth, causes mass decay, and even affects the jawbone.

Our well-practiced, time-tested techniques, paired with state-of-the-art technology, allow us to give you the proper treatment and care. Utilizing digital x-rays and advanced 3D imaging systems, we can examine your entire dental anatomy in detail to detect developing problems and create the most effective plan of action for your needs.

We also offer prompt emergency care should some urgent dental complication arise. Our various periodontal treatments can beautify your smile and fix spacing or alignment issues. We also shine at cosmetic dentistry, should you experience any unaesthetic problem that drains your confidence and keeps you from flashing your smile wide and often.
