Dental care is important during every stage of life. At Summit Dental Group, we offer a preventative and comprehensive approach to family dentistry in Boise, Idaho. This means we are prepared to help you and your family with your first dental check-up and on. With over 35 years of dental experience, we’ve got all your bases covered.
From baby teeth to aging smiles, below are some of the preventative services we offer:
The First Dental Visit
As recommended by the American Dental Association, a child should have their first Boise dental visit by their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth appearing. Doing so will provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to care for their primary teeth. By introducing your child to their Boise dentist at a young age, you will also ensure future positive experiences as they get older.
Boise Dental Sealants
Boise dental sealants are a wonderful way to protect your child’s teeth. Applied as a thin coating to the grooves of your child’s back teeth, Boise dental sealants work to prevent cavities by blocking the penetration of bacteria, sugar, germs, and other cavity-causing substances. All in all, sealants are an excellent way to save you time, money, and the stress of having to make unwanted Boise dental appointments for costly treatments.
For many people, having your wisdom teeth removed is a rite of passage into adulthood. As the last teeth to develop and breakthrough in the mouth, wisdom teeth (your third molars), usually come in between the ages of 16 and 18. While not all people experience problems with their wisdom teeth, the decision on whether or not to have them removed is a decision best left to your Boise dentist. If you are experiencing any problems or symptoms due to the eruption of wisdom teeth, it is important to schedule an exam and talk with your Boise dentist about your dental treatment options.
Whether you’ve lost teeth due to decay, age, or accident, the dentists at Summit Dental know that missing teeth can be embarrassing, inconvenient, and uncomfortable. As the desired choice for people wanting a permanent solution to replacing missing teeth, Boise dental implants are a great option when it comes to a natural-looking, functional and reliable smile. Not only do they help to maintain bone structure and tooth health, but they also require no special care and are a permanent solution that can last a lifetime.
