If you are a parent, you know life can be hectic. Between work and all your kids’ activities, you can have trouble finding time for yourself much less going to the dentist.
You know that going to the dentist is important. You want a caring family dentist who sees patients of all ages.
If you live in Southern New Hampshire, you can find that at Nashua Family Dentistry. We provide a range of services from general dental needs to emergency care. Let us show you what family dentistry is about.
If you are new to the area or just looking for a new family dentist, we hope you will pay us a visit.
When you and your family come for your first exams, you will need to fill out some forms. You can save time by downloading the forms from our website and filling them in before your arrival.
One of our hygienists will give you and your family a cleaning and periodontal examination. This includes looking for signs of gum disease and planning future treatment, if needed.
We’ll also take X-rays and photos of your teeth. This will help us assess the health of your teeth. It also helps us identify any changes to your teeth during later visits.
We’ll also conduct an oral cancer screening. We hope we never find anything, but if we do, we know early detection leads to better treatment.
We recommend that patients have professional cleanings and exams every six months. Routine, professional cleanings are essential to maintaining a healthy mouth, just like brushing and flossing every day.
Sealants and fluoride treatments
Sealants are great way to protect your kids’ teeth. Sealants keep bacteria and other harmful substances from causing infections that can lead to tooth decay.
These can save you and your kids from bigger dental problems down the road.
Fluoride is added to the water in many American cities. This has improved tooth health by strengthening the enamel on your teeth.
Fluoride treatments can further strengthen that enamel. This, too, makes it harder for cavities to form.
And fluoride treatments are safe for the whole family.
Gum disease treatment
Gum disease affects an estimated 80 percent of Americans during their lifetime.
Brushing, flossing, and professional cleanings can keep this from getting out of hand in most cases. Nevertheless, the dentists and staff at Nashua Family Dentistry are prepared to provide safe, effective treatment if needed.
Our nonsurgical treatments include scaling and root planing. We also offer laser therapy. This isn’t something out of science fiction. It is a modern dental technique for fighting periodontal disease.
Lasers are less invasive than surgery, which means your gums heal faster after your treatment. Our laser also sanitizes your gums during your treatment.
If your son or daughter plays an impact sport, a mouthguard should be an essential piece of protective equipment. A mouthguard can save their teeth in the event of a blow to the mouth, or it can minimize the damage of a serious collision or fall.
We also create mouthguards to treat bruxism (clenching and grinding your teeth). Custom-fitted mouthguards are helpful in treating some snoring problems and sleep apnea as well.
Quite frankly, this is one of our services we hope you will never need.
If you are feel oral pain of any kind, please call use as soon as you can.
If you have a broken or chipped tooth or a tooth that has been knocked out, we can help. If you suffered tissue damage to your tongue, cheek, or gums, we want to see you.
And if you have suffered an injury to your jaw, let us help you.
If the emergency occurs outside our normal hours, call anyway and we can put you in touch with our on-call doctor.
The sooner you act in an emergency, the sooner we can help.
We use the latest dental technology to serve your better. We offer pillows, blankets, and music to help you feel comfortable. We also offer oral conscious sedation for patients who may be anxious about coming to the dentist.
Your family deserves the best care available in modern dentistry. We want to provide that for you and your loved ones.
