Auburn family dentists treat patients of all ages
Your family dentists are skilled at treating and detecting dental issues in people of all ages.

Regular visits to the family dentist help reduce your costs and safeguard your oral health
Dental problems are always easier and less expensive to treat when they're small. Filling cavities tends to weaken teeth because a portion of the healthy tooth structure must be removed along with the decayed area. Treating small cavities preserves healthy tooth structure and helps you avoid the more complicated and expensive procedures that are needed when tooth decay isn't spotted until it's very advanced.
Regular dental visits include professional dental cleanings, which can help lower your risk of developing cavities or gum disease. During the cleanings, plaque and tartar are removed from your teeth before they can cause any damage. Your dentists also look for other signs of disease, such as tumors that may be signs of oral cancer. They can even spot symptoms of general health problems during those visits. For example, if you have diabetes, you may be more likely to develop gum disease and bleeding gums.
