Family Dental Services
Dentist in Durham
At Park Place Dental, our top priority is to provide you with the highest level of service and quality dental work. We will work individually with you to educate you on the importance of caring for you and your family’s teeth.
Dental Care for Children
We provide dentistry for all ages, including children. Early detection of dental problems is essential to maintain good oral health. It is recommended for all patients to schedule a routine six-month check-up exam starting at age one.
Dental Exams and Cleanings
Dr. Mary Gaddis, our Durham dentist, will examine your child’s mouth for tooth decay and gum disease. Regular professional dental cleanings are essential for a healthy and beautiful smile. During your child’s dental cleaning, we will gently remove any buildup of plaque and tartar.
Sealants protect against tooth decay and cavities on your child’s molars and premolars. They are applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and are highly effective in preventing tooth decay, since it may be difficult to brush at these areas.
We educate our patients on the importance of caring for your teeth. According to the American Academy of Dentistry, it is recommended to visit our dentist at least twice a year. Routine visits will start you and your child on a lifetime of good dental health.
In order for you to maintain great oral health, this level of quality needs to extend to your personal oral hygiene routine. Taking care of your teeth at home can help you maintain good oral health and prevent periodontal disease, tooth decay and cavities from developing. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily will help to combat the buildup of plaque in and around your teeth and gums.
We can help you establish a dental hygiene routine that will keep your teeth healthy and beautiful.
Emergency Dental Treatment
If you or your child needs urgent dental treatment, it is important to contact our Durham dental office as soon as the injury occurs. We will be able to provide you instructions on how to care for your mouth at home or if it is necessary for you to come to our office.
