Demanding work hours, a full schedule of school and sports activities, endless household chores . . . your days are packed! Why spend more time than necessary away from the things you want and need to do? Family care at Bright Smiles Dental Studio in Glendale provides all the services you are likely to need, for every stage of life.
BABY’S FIRST TASTE OF ORAL HEALTH
Dr. Carlos Garcia is a parent, too. He understands that you want to give your little one the best possible start on lifelong oral health. We recommend scheduling baby’s initial visit when the first tooth begins to emerge, or by the first birthday. You’ll receive home care instruction and options for preventative treatments to help your child avoid tooth decay and other childhood oral problems.
BITING DOWN ON TEEN DENTAL ISSUES
As your child approaches adolescence, peer pressure toward tobacco and alcohol gains momentum. At this age, some teens develop eating disorders. Dr. Garcia carefully monitors oral health for signs of trouble. Most teens start to care more about appearance, too. As adult teeth come in, this may be a good time to consider bonding, teeth whitening, or clear “braces” that comfortably straighten crooked teeth with special, removable aligner trays.
SINKING YOUR TEETH INTO ADULT ORAL CARE
It is easy to neglect your own needs while caring for children or elderly parents, but please don’t. Maintaining oral health now has a tremendous impact on your overall wellness. Adults get cavities, and this is prime time to develop gum disease – a serious condition linked to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and other systemic health problems.
MASTICATING INTO MATURITY
Continued dental care helps mature patients keep their natural teeth, ideally for life! If that isn’t possible, Dr. Garcia will design dentures that look natural and fit securely.
