Cleanings, fillings, and exams

Having cleanings and exams every six months is foundational to whole body health. Within about one hour, Dr. Szierer will carefully assess your teeth and gums. Our hygienists will remove the stubborn plaque buildup that you may have trouble removing on your own at home.

If your exam reveals your teeth need treatment for decay and disease, we will write up a treatment plan customized to your needs and preferences. One of the easiest ways to reverse chips and cavities is with tooth-colored fillings. These subtle treatments are matched to your smile and can be completed within minutes in our office.

Brightening your smile’s future with sealants

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are painted over the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. Dental sealants can be used to prevent decay in patients of all ages, but are especially beneficial for children.

Our back molars have rough and uneven surfaces that tend to attract and hide bacteria. It is difficult to clean these back teeth, leaving them at risk for painful tooth decay. Sealants fill in the grooves and crevices, keeping bacteria out!

What should I look for in a family dentist?

The best way to choose a family dentist overall is to feel comfortable with the dentist and staff. They should be fun, educational, compassionate, and professional, all at the same time. Below are some other things you should consider when choosing your family dentist:

  • Quality of experience
  • Quality of services
  • Location
  • In-house technology
  • Services offered
  • Cost
  • How emergency cases are handled

What will a family dentist do on your first visit?

Your family dentist will complete a dental exam. In addition to the exam, an assessment of the jaws, bite, gums, and oral tissues to check the growth and development. A gentle cleaning might occur if needed, followed by polishing teeth and removing plaque, tartar, and stains. If required, Drs. Jackson and Wascher may provide fluoride and a mini-lesson on the most effective way to floss and brush.

What is the difference between family dentistry and pediatric dentistry?

General dentists may treat younger children to basic dental cleanings. For more stringent procedures, children often visit a pediatric dentist. Pediatric dental services specialize in dental care for children under 18 years of age. Our Flemington dental clinic can easily perform other procedures such as a root canal, implant-retained dentures, and basic cosmetic dentistry.

Some parents find it easier to visit the same dentist with their children. In this case, family dentistry is an ideal choice. Family dentists do not specialize in treating just one age group. They are also well-versed in oral disease treatment for every phase of life.

Do I need A Family Dentist?

Having a family dentist may be the best decision you could make for your whole family. Oral health is critical. Besides having a great smile, oral hygiene reduces infections, heart disease, and even cancer. It’s a crucial part of your and your family’s overall health and wellness.

A family dentist treats young children, teens, adults, and the elderly and provides proper oral care during every life stage. By choosing a family dentist, you’ll build a long-term relationship with your dental care provider. That relationship results in a higher level of dental health.
