Midvale Park Dentist

Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Midvale Park

First Dental Center serves families just like yours in Midvale Park. We offer a full array of both medical and cosmetic dentistry services for people of all ages. If you need a crown and your child needs their first dental cleaning, we’re prepared to help every member of your household. Here’s what First Dental Center can do to keep your family happy and healthy.

Checkups and Cleanings for the Whole Family

Your little ones should start getting regular dental checkups as soon as their teeth start coming in. As they lose their baby teeth and their adult teeth begin to emerge, these checkups are even more important. These checkups can set the foundation for proper dental hygiene habits your children will need for their entire lives.

Regular cleanings let us check the health of your teeth and help you keep them healthy. Regular cleanings can help Dr. Yang spot dental health concerns before they become serious. Make sure to book dental cleanings for your family.

Emergency Dentistry Services

If a dental emergency is causing you pain, the emergency room may not be prepared to treat you. We’re prepared to handle many common dental emergencies, like chipped teeth or dental abscesses. We can provide same day or next day services to many patients, including antibiotics to treat dental infections.


Dental Fillings

Silver fillings really stick out. Thankfully, dentists have more options to give their patients natural looking smiles. If you need a cavity filled, Dr. Yang can use a special dental composite that blends naturally into the color of your own tooth. Your cavity will be fixed and no one will ever know it was there in the first place.

 

Root Canals and Extractions

Root canals used to be considered a scary procedure, but modern dentistry has made these procedures safe and tolerable for almost every patient. Dr. Yang will always assess a damaged tooth to see if it can be saved by a root canal. Solutions like dental implants and bridges can be a great solution, but nothing is better than saving your natural tooth.

Dr. Yang will also perform extractions, but she prefers to use them as a last resort. It’s always best to attempt to save a healthy tooth, as long as it isn’t a wisdom tooth. Wisdom teeth aren’t necessary for a healthy mouth, and many people encounter issues when their wisdom teeth begin to emerge. If you need your wisdom teeth extracted, Dr. Yang can help.


Treating Gum Disease

As many as half of all Americans will experience gum disease at some point in their lives. Gum disease, also called periodontal disease, is common and easily treatable when detected early. Gingivitis, or early-stage gum disease, is usually simple to treat with improved dental hygiene practices. Flossing and special mouthwash can work to combat the symptoms of gingivitis.

Advanced gum disease requires thorough intervention. If you notice blood while you’re flossing, receding gums, or tenderness when you brush, book an appointment. Dr. Yang can intervene to restore and preserve the health of your mouth.

Crowns and Bridges

Crowns can be used to repair damaged teeth. They can be used for both cosmetic and functional reasons. Your teeth are shaped according to their function. If your tooth is broken or damaged, you won’t be able to chew properly. In some cases, you may find it difficult to speak clearly. A crown can fit the issue, restoring the appearance and function of your tooth.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can be used to fill the gap. A dental bridge consists of at least one false tooth that’s attached to two dental crowns that are placed over healthy teeth. Special dental cement helps to hold your bridge in place. The gap between your teeth will be filled and your bite will be restored.

Dentures, Partials, and Dental Implants

 If your teeth are missing or too damaged to repair, solutions like dentures, partials, and dental implants are your options. Dental implants are a great choice for people who have a few missing teeth and a healthy jawbone to support the implant. Dentures and partials will work for almost everyone, including people with a history of gum disease.

 Modern dentures look just as wonderful as healthy natural teeth. Modern materials are lightweight, durable, and very realistic.
