Family DentistryDo you need a family dentist? The professionals at Millbrook Smiles in Sudbury, MA, are here to help!

What can your family dentist do for you?

  • Bridges: Bridges are custom-made oral appliances that can conceal dental gaps while also restoring proper biting and chewing functions. 
     
  • Crowns: A dental crown is a porcelain cap that reinforces weak teeth and covers unaesthetic ones, such as those marred by cracks, dents, and chips. When your tooth is severely decayed and large portions of it are removed, your Sudbury family dentists use a dental crown to preserve whatever remains of your natural tooth.
     
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants are made up of a titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jaws to replace missing tooth roots. Implants help stabilize, strengthen, and prevent the weakening and shrinking of your jawbone.
     
  • Fillings and Dental Bonding: Made from composite resin, these procedures aim to treat decayed, chipped, fractured, and discolored teeth. In order to prepare your teeth for the composite, your family dentist will apply an etching solution on the tooth surface before applying the resin. The composite is then molded to the right shape and hardened with a curing light.

General Dental Care

Here are a few tips to stay healthy:

  • Visit your dentist for bi-annual dental appointments to maintain your oral health
  • Avoid eating hard candies and sugary food
  • Floss your teeth before bed to preserve your crowns and natural teeth
  • Drink plenty of water to remove food debris
  • Use fluoride-containing products like toothpastes and mouthwash
  • Eat fruits and vegetables that'll help avoid cavities
  • Brush your teeth twice a day by spending two full minutes brushing your teeth and tilting your brush at a 45-degree angle to ensure that you remove as much food debris as possible

Preventive services

You brush and floss at home. You watch your diet and encourage your family in tooth-friendly eating. So why go to the family dentist?

Frankly, no matter what your age or walk of life, you need routine hygienic cleanings and dental exams every six months. Plaque and tartar target your teeth and gums with decay and gum disease, the number one cause of tooth loss in the US, according to the American Academy of Periodontology. Your family dentist in Sudbury provides the extra vigilance and diagnostic skill needed to spot dental and gingival problems early on while they are treatable.

Additionally, Dr. Garcia:

  • Checks condition of existing fillings, crowns and other restorations
  • Recommends plastic sealants and fluoride treatments for teeth at risk for decay (these services are for adults, too)
  • Performs oral cancer screening
  • Takes digital X-rays to visualize bone structure and roots
  • Checks dental bite and alignment

Yes, your family dentist takes your findings and formulates a treatment plan for each patient. The goal is healthy teeth and gums and a great smile.
