Children’s Dental Care
Dr. Creager helps children maintain a healthy smile. The development of the teeth is a delicate process that relies on the baby teeth more than you may expect. If these teeth become unhealthy, they cause problems for the adult teeth beneath them.
To help keep his pediatric patients healthy, Ward Creager Family and Cosmetic Dentistry uses preventive dental care during a child’s dental appointment. When used at the right time in the development stage, fluoride and sealants help the tooth avoid decay and premature loss.
Applying fluoride makes the enamel strong and more resistant to the bacterial acids that cause cavities. Our kids’ dentist also uses sealants to prevent food from getting stuck on the tops of molars. The decay-causing acids are a byproduct of oral bacteria feeding off these particles. As a result, food that sticks to the teeth is a cavity magnet. As a form of preventive care, sealants do not let the food stick and prevent decay from taking place.
Early Orthodontic Observance
There is another benefit to taking your children to Ward Creager Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. When he is able to perform their twice-yearly dental exam and cleaning, Dr. Creager sees how your child’s jaw develops.
The structure of the mouth determines the alignment of the teeth. If teeth are crowded, crooked, or have some other alignment issue, the smile suffers in various ways. It becomes much harder to keep healthy, as flossing is difficult to do when the teeth are crowded together. Teeth misalignment can also cause temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), wherein the jaw joint’s cushion moves out of place and causes significant discomfort. In addition to these, the smile can also lose its cosmetic appeal. This can cause a drop in self-confidence.
Braces are the classic treatment, but they can be uncomfortable and expensive. Alternatively, Dr. Creager’s routine examinations of your child’s smile let him see the orthodontic problems as they are developing. That way, he can refer you to a specialist for early orthodontic planning.
Elderly Dental Care
When we say we treat all ages, we also mean the other side of the coin. Elderly patients come with their own unique dental needs, such as relining dentures and receiving dental implants. Dr. Creager provides several restorative dental options to gently treat older patients.
