Finding a dentist for the family is beneficial. Anthem Smile Arizona, a family dentist in Anthem, has experience with patients of all ages. We provide our patients with exceptional cleanings to promote oral health and X rays for diagnoses. So, we guarantee you will have a positive experience with us.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their first dental visit by age one or six months after their first tooth appears. In general, patients should visit their dentist every six months to keep their mouth, gums and teeth healthy and strong.
The dentist and staff at Anthem Smile Arizona emphasize oral health and hygiene to limit the chances of oral disease. During the regular check ups, our dental hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and gums for plaque, food, and tartar buildup. We will highlight the importance of brushing and flossing your teeth and rinsing your mouth with an antiseptic mouthwash daily. Our dentists will look at your X rays in depth for any issues. If we notice anything for concern, we will recommend a treatment plan, such as the removal of decay and dental fillings.
We also perform dental sealants on children—we recommend ages 6-12. A thin, protective coating is placed on your teeth that adheres to your molars, nooks and crannies you miss while brushing and flossing. According to the American Dental Association, sealants reduce the risk of decay by approximately 80% in molars! The sealant prevents bacteria and acid from settling onto your teeth, preventing cavities.
If your child plays a contact sport, such as football, or grinds their teeth unconsciously (like at night), we will fabricate a mouth guard that will perfectly fit them. This will protect their teeth from chipping or breaking.
If we notice an escalating oral disease, we offer various restorative treatments, such as dental crowns, bridges and dentures for tooth extractions. If advanced restorative treatment is necessary, we will surgically place implants and perform root canal surgery and other orthopedic procedures.
