Are you looking for a dental office that can serve your entire family? Then look no further. Dr. Amin Taba serves patients of all ages, including children as young as three. Getting the important dental care your family needs shouldn't mean visiting one dental office for yourself and another for your son or daughter. We're happy to schedule back-to-back appointments for parents and their children because we know how busy life is for families.
We recommend that our patients come to see us twice a year for regular cleanings, exams and x-rays. These visits are important because they let Dr. Taba watch for changes in oral health. What kinds of changes? Specifically, we're looking for issues like gum disease and tooth decay. Because of our emphasis on preventive care, we want to treat these and other issues as soon as possible.
Preventive dentistry isn't just about offering early care, though. To give teeth extra protection, we offer dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Dental sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth, and especially around any deep grooves, and then are hardened into a thin plastic coating that physically protects teeth from bacteria and decay. Fluoride, meanwhile, is a mineral that supports and strengthens tooth enamel. It's already in many toothpaste brands and drinking waters, but some patients will benefit from the extra dose in our office.
Another aspect of family and preventive dentistry is patient education. If you have questions about how to care for your smile at home, Dr. Taba will be happy to answer them. We recommend that patients brush at least twice a day, or after every meal, if possible. We also tell patients to floss at least once a day to remove leftover pieces of food caught between teeth, and to rinse with an antibacterial or fluoride mouthwash.
If we find anything during your exam, or if you have a cosmetic or restorative service you want to ask us about, we can talk to you about your treatment options. We offer a rich variety of today's best cosmetic and restorative services, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and dental implants.
