Ascent Dental has been taking care of families for decades. Family dentistry is all about keeping healthy smiles and preventing problems from occurring. If you’re ready for family dentists who are one-of-a-kind, we’re here for you!
To maintain optimal oral health, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends regular dental visits, at intervals determined by a dentist, generally twice a year. Your visit with Ascent Dental typically includes a professional cleaning, any necessary x-ray images, and a detailed examination from our experienced team.
The purpose of a dental exam is to review the current state of your mouth and teeth to allow us to see if there are any problem areas or areas we can help you improve to prevent future problems from arising. With proven and new dental technology, we are often able to pinpoint trouble before it happens!
Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth. Swollen, bleeding, or red gums are the most common symptom. This disease is easy to prevent if it is detected early enough and there are procedures to return your gums to a healthy state.
Dentistry for Kids
Our desire is to achieve optimal oral health through prevention first. That means caring for children’s dental needs beginning with the eruption of the first tooth. We understand the importance of establishing a good oral hygiene regimen early in a child’s life, and we educate our young patients and their parents on the importance of regular dental checkups, preventative treatment and good at-home oral care to maintain a beautiful smile and promote healthy teeth and gums.
