At Bladenboro Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. French and Dr. Bald help patients of all ages receive high-quality treatment. Our team emphasizes the importance of cavity prevention, especially in younger patients. Children who experience high rates of tooth decay or get cavities are more prone to oral health issues later in life. However, infection is preventable with routine dental care and good oral hygiene. At regular general dental visits, our team can spot the early signs of decay and disease using modern dental technology. Visiting the dentist on a regular basis as a child also helps establish the foundation for healthy oral hygiene habits. If you are looking for a family dentist in Bladenboro, NC, call Dr. French today.
Your Child’s First Dentist Visit
At your child’s first dental visit, we will provide:
- Dental x-rays
- Comprehensive oral health exam
- Dental cleaning
- Routine cavity screening
- Flouride treatment
- Dental sealants
Our office recommends that parents schedule their child’s first dental visit after their first tooth emerges. Regular pediatric visits allow our team to monitor any changes in the bite, jaw, teeth, and gums. We also recommend that parents clean their child’s gums even before their teeth erupt. Using a wet cloth, parents can wipe off food particles from the gums. A buildup of these particles as well as harmful bacteria can lead to gum disease and tooth decay later on. Our team also helps younger patients learn how to care for their oral health once their baby teeth have come in. We find that reinforcing good oral health habits from a young age leads to better overall oral health later on.
Dental Treatments for Adults
As we age, we can encounter oral health problems like darkened tooth enamel, damaged teeth, and even tooth loss. At Bladenboro Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, our dentists provide implant restorations, veneers, bonding, and teeth whitening treatment to address these problems.
Dental implants are sturdy titanium posts that replace single missing teeth or can be used to secure dental restorations. Bridges help to replaces multiple consecutive missing teeth and dentures can replace full arches of lost teeth. Chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth may be treated with dental veneers and tooth bonding. Although both of these treatments are similar, veneers are made of shells of porcelain ceramic while dental bonding uses resin composite material on teeth. Tooth whitening treatment can erase years of tooth stains for a brighter smile. Our office uses professional-grade bleaching agents to whiten teeth by multiple shades.
