Your path to total wellness begins with your oral health. Our team at Ridge Family Dental believes in creating more than just beautiful smiles. We are dedicated to nurturing the overall well-being of our patients. With our experience and passion, we strive to provide a dynamic yet easy-to-understand approach to dentistry. Our commitment goes well beyond routine check-ups. We also want to get to know you during your initial exam. Treating you as a “total patient” helps you to function in complete harmony.
Comprehensive Initial Exams
When you start your oral health journey with us, we will begin with a comprehensive initial exam. Our friendly and welcoming team will take the time to understand you and your unique needs, concerns, and goals. We believe in treating the whole person, not just isolated dental issues. As a result, we ensure that our care aligns with your overall well-being.
Our comprehensive exams delve into every aspect of your oral health. From evaluating the condition of your teeth and gums to assessing the alignment of your jaw, we leave no stone unturned. This holistic approach enables us to detect issues early on. We can then develop proactive strategies for prevention and intervention. Our goal is to promote long-term oral health and overall wellness.
Dental Cleaning and Exams
Routine dental cleanings are a cornerstone of our preventative care. Our skilled hygienists use advanced techniques to remove plaque and tartar, leaving your teeth sparkling clean. We view dental cleanings as an opportunity not just to maintain your oral health but to also educate you on proper at-home care. We hope to empower you to take control of your smile between visits. During these exams, our team can recommend dental services just as dental fillings, teeth whitening, or dental crowns.
Bite Analysis for New Patients
A proper bite is the foundation for a healthy smile. Our bite analysis for new patients goes beyond the surface. This allows us to identify any misalignments or irregularities. When we understand your bite, we can tailor treatment plans to ensure that your teeth, jaw, and muscles work together in harmony. Suffering from bite problems can cause dental erosion, broken teeth, and chronic headaches. Therefore, we address not only cosmetic concerns but also functional aspects as well.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) issues can impact your daily life more than you might realize. Your jaw joint is involved in many crucial day-to-day functions, such as eating, speaking, and sleeping. Those with TMJ problems can develop chronic pain and discomfort. Our thorough TMJ screenings help us identify any signs of dysfunction. This can range from jaw pain to clicking or popping. As a result, we can address your jaw issues early on. When you promote harmony in your jaw joint, you can achieve better overall comfort and well-being.
Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea
We understand the vital connection between oral health and overall wellness. That’s why we offer oral appliances for sleep apnea. For those with mild to moderate sleep apnea, we want to provide effective solutions for your sleep-related breathing issues. We want you to understand the importance of a good night’s sleep and the role your oral health plays in achieving it.
