Continuing Care for Seniors

Contrary to popular misconception, old age does not have to be synonymous with tooth loss. At Terravita Smiles, we help seniors keep their natural teeth for as long as possible through exceptional preventive oral health services.

We understand that many seniors are impacted by periodontal (gum) disease, the leading cause of tooth loss. That's why we offer prompt diagnosis and treatments for gum disease. By conducting regular exams, our Scottsdale family dentist can catch these issues early and reverse the damage caused through root planning, scaling, charting, and maintenance. Our friendly staff will monitor the health of your gums and answer any questions you might have about gum disease or treatments.

We always stay alert for gum disease symptoms such as:

  • Constant bleeding when flossing or brushing
  • Pain while eating
  • Swollen gums
  • A persistent toothache
  • Loose teeth

If you notice any of these symptoms in yourself or a senior member of your family, our experienced dentist can evaluate gum health and help you explore possible treatment options. Though our primary goal is to help you maintain your natural teeth, we do offer exceptional restorations, such as dental implants, crowns, and bridges.

Welcoming Dental Treatments for Children

At Terravita Smiles, we aim to make your child's experience relaxing at all times. Our dentist will engage your child with a gentle chairside manner and explain treatments using easy-to-follow language to help ease their minds and make the experience enjoyable.

We provide dental exams and checkups to ensure your little ones develop healthy smiles from the onset. Some of our common treatments for children include pulpotomies, frenectomies, stainless steel crowns, fluorides, and sealants. Our primary focus is to ensure that your child's teeth, jaws, and gums are healthy and developing correctly. We begin seeing young patients at six months old or the moment they develop their first tooth.

Building a Foundation of Oral Health for Teens

Our dental exams for teens include screenings and visual inspections of teeth and gums. Besides removing built-up plaque from the teeth, our dentist offers suggestions on dental equipment and techniques your teens can use at home to maintain proper oral health.

If your teen plays a high-contact sport, our dentist can craft them comfortable, custom-fitted sports guards to protect their teeth during physical activities. Also, we evaluate your teen's bite to ensure proper alignment at every visit.

Shaping Adult Smiles

Our family dental services include multiple restorative and cosmetic treatments to help you realize your oral health goals. Our dentist will discuss your treatment options and help you make informed decisions regarding your dental well-being.

Some of our common dental treatments for adults include:

Dental Restorations: We offer a wide range of restorations to repair decayed, cracked, or fractured teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants.

Root Canal Therapy: Our dentist may recommend root canal therapy to save a substantially infected or decayed tooth. Our dentist begins by removing the infected material (under local anesthesia) and then seals the tooth with a dental filling or crown to minimize the risk of recurring decay.

Sleep Apnea: When you're not getting a restful night's sleep, you aren't able to function at your best. If you've been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we offer solutions that help you breathe clearly, relieve stress, and let you get the rest you need.

Invisalign® Treatments: We offer Invisalign treatment as a non-invasive orthodontic alternative to regular metal braces. You'll receive a series of precisely fitted plastic trays that will gradually fix minor-to-moderate alignment and bite issues. We offer Invisalign to adults and responsible teens who are sixteen and over.

Overall, the dental needs of adults are quite diverse. Our Scottsdale family dentistry team has the experience and expertise to cater to every adult's unique dental health circumstances. We emphasize preserving your natural teeth and restoring your smile to boost your confidence and overall well-being.
