Gentle Dentistry for Children

A lifetime of proper oral hygiene begins during childhood. It's crucial that your child understands the importance of visiting the dentist and caring for their smile at home. Our friendly staff, which includes a skilled pediatric dentist, enjoys working with children and their unique personalities. As such, we'll take the time to introduce them to our team and walk them through our facilities. We're more than happy to answer their questions using kid-friendly language that's easy for them to retain.

We'll show them how to brush and floss their teeth during your child's initial visit using step-by-step instructions. Our team will explain the instructions in a fun and interactive way. We'll also take the time to ask them about their oral care habits during each visit and help them understand that brushing and flossing are everyday activities. Additionally, we'll monitor their smile for potential orthodontic problems and provide phase 1 and 2 orthodontic treatments if necessary.

Respectful Dental Care for Teens

West Caldwell family dentistryTeenagers are at an age where they're gaining independence and responsibility. As such, it can be easy for them to deprioritize oral care. Our West Caldwell family dentist and their team will help remind your teen of the importance of caring for their smile while respecting their independence and transition into adulthood.

A crucial component of our dental care for teenagers is orthodontics. Our practice can handle mild to complex dental misalignments like gapped teeth and overbites. We're proud to offer traditional metal braces as well as more discreet options like Invisalign® clear aligners.

Comprehensive Dentistry for Adults

Adults have extensive dental needs that encompass preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. During your initial visit, we'll conduct a thorough oral exam to determine the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbones. Afterward, we'll create a personalized treatment plan reflective of your needs. We encourage you to ask questions about your plan as we can make any necessary adjustments for it to fit your comfort level.

Some of the dental services we offer adults include:

Family Dentistry FAQs

If you have any questions about our West Caldwell family dentistry offerings, our staff is more than happy to answer them. Some frequently asked questions about family dentistry include:

How soon can you begin treating my child?

Our practice regularly treats children of all ages. However, we can begin seeing children as soon as their first tooth.

We recommend visiting our office for regular checkups twice a year. If you're suffering from dental complications like gum disease, you may have to visit our office more frequently.

Proper oral care and regular dental checkups are the best way to help prevent cavities. We highly recommend reducing your intake of sugary and acidic foods as they can erode your teeth's enamel. If your tooth's enamel erodes enough, the opening provides a channel for bacteria to enter its pulp and infect the entire tooth.
