It's not easy to find a dentist when life is steadily on the move. Establishing a relationship with a dentist could be a daunting task if you are unfamiliar with routine dental cleanings, or if you've recently moved into a new neighborhood. Regardless of why you may need a family dentist, at Gerber Dentistry, LLC, in North Huntingdon, PA, we offer a wide variety of family dentistry services that can benefit the oral health of your entire family.
Preventive dental services are necessary for adults and children of all ages to keep their teeth and gums in a healthy condition. At Gerber Dentistry, LLC, in North Huntingdon, PA, we take care of your smile and the smile of your relatives. We can teach you the correct technique for brushing and flossing, or perhaps show your child just how fun oral care can be. We can also discuss the significance of routine professional cleanings, dental exams, and necessary x-rays. Our goal is to work together with you to meet your family dentistry needs.
Benefits for Children and Teens
As a preventive measure, we always check for signs of gum disease and cavities. Baby teeth are critical to a child's health and development, and should always be in a healthy state. We will keep your child's teeth extra clean by removing dental plaque and tartar buildup, but most importantly, we will teach them about the value of self-care in-between visits.
Advantages for Adults and Elders
As we grow older, oral health may take a backseat to other health concerns. When a periodontal infection, such as periodontitis is present in adults and seniors, this can contribute to tooth loss as well as oral-systemic disease. Without regular dental treatment, teeth may become sensitive, or decay at a quicker rate. Routine cleanings are also valuable for oral cancer detection.
We are here to help you and your family members keep their permanent teeth for a lifetime. For all of your family dentistry needs, look no further than Gerber Dental Care, LLC in Irwin and North Huntingdon, PA. For questions or concerns, please call (724) 864-7900.
