As a parent, you have a lot to keep track of while you are raising a family. You have all sorts of appointments to keep track of for yourself and your children! One way to simplify making dental appointments is to all go to the same place and see a family dentist. We are just that at the office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS, and we are able to see all ages of patients. Here are some of the things that we offer as a family dentist:
- Dental Checkups: We have a team of dental hygienists that will make your teeth sparkling clean! It is recommended that children start seeing a dentist at around the age of one or within six months of getting their first tooth. They may not let the hygienist or dentist do much, but this will at least allow them to get used to seeing a dentist. The dentist will also be able to do a quick check to make sure all their teeth are coming in okay. All patients should be seen about every six months for a cleaning and checkup.
- Cavity Fillings: In the event that we find you or any of your children have a cavity during your dental checkups, we can schedule another appointment to fill your cavity or cavities.
- Root Canal Therapy: If we determine during a checkup or a cavity filling that bacteria has spread to the root of your tooth, we offer root canal therapy to treat the bacteria.
- Tooth Extraction: In the event that you need a tooth extraction, we are happy to do that for you and discuss options for replacement in the case of a permanent tooth.
