Family Dental Care in Woodstock, MD
Routine dental appointments are important for every patient, regardless of age. If you or your child require a dental cleaning and exam, we can help you schedule a time for both of you to receive care at the same appointment.
During pediatric dental visits, we provide gentle dental cleanings. We also look for signs of cavities, a common dental problem in younger patients. The enamel is not as hard on the baby teeth as the adult teeth. Because of this, children can be more prone to decay. Regular dental cleanings can remove plaque and tartar buildup and prevent early signs of decay from damaging the teeth and gums.
Additionally, we can consult parents and children on habits like thumb-sucking and nail-biting. Our team will also help young patients learn the best way to care for their smiles at home.
What are Sealants and Fluoride Treatments?
Children and adolescents benefit from dental sealants and fluoride. Sealants are coatings that protect the back molars. Children benefit from dental sealants because their back molars are more prone to cavities. This treatment seals out harmful bacteria and prevents decay.
Fluoride is a mineral that strengthens the tooth enamel and helps combat tooth decay and cavities. It is important to use fluoride toothpaste and drink fluoridated water to keep teeth strong. At regular dental visits, we can provide a fluoride treatment, which uses high concentrations of fluoride applied to the tooth enamel.
Caring for Aging Smiles
Over time, as we age, we can develop further oral health problems. Tooth injuries can damage teeth, while problems like teeth clenching and grinding can wear down the tooth enamel. Our office provides tooth bonding, veneers, and crowns to cover and protect teeth. Tooth bonding and veneers cover tooth chips, cracks, and even discoloration. Dental crowns cover tooth damage and strengthen weakened teeth, especially following a root canal.
Missing teeth are another problem that we can treat with restorative dental care. Even one missing tooth can make it harder for patients to eat and speak normally. Replacing teeth at the root with dental implants improves the function and aesthetic of the smile. Dr. Mazzella provides tooth implants for single dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.
We’re proud to care for patients’ smiles throughout their life. We can address various problems, from helping patients address their routine oral health needs to providing full mouth reconstructions.
