Available Services for Family-Focused Dentistry

Family dentistry services include diagnosing, monitoring, and treating the unique oral health conditions that change at every age. We provide a comprehensive approach to dental care that combines prevention with compassionate techniques and patient education. We serve smiles as young as three and gladly welcome individuals as well as families.

Our services include, but are not limited to:

Family Dental Care & The Oral-Systemic Connection

Portrait of happy family brushing their teeth together at homeRoutine dental visits can help your oral and overall health in many ways. A healthy smile free of tooth decay, infection, and gum disease can contribute towards better well-being. This is because there is a close connection between your oral and overall body health.

It’s not uncommon for the earliest signs of health conditions to manifest themselves in the mouth first. Dentists are often the first health professionals to detect underlying medical issues through dental exams and cleanings.

At Milner Dental Care, we are dedicated to keeping your loved ones healthy and safe. We can provide preventive care with age-appropriate adjustments based on our background knowledge of your family’s genetic, dental, and medical history. Our team can also recommend treatments we feel will best support the goal of lasting oral and overall health.

Dental Care for Children

We work closely with parents and guardians to help children feel safe and relaxed in the dental chair. Promoting confidence with positive dental visits can make everything from exams to cleanings and oral hygiene education easier.

Helping Children Understand Dental Prevention

We love helping children discover that their dental care is not only essential, it can also be fun! During visits, we like to use exciting imaging technology with intraoral cameras to show what’s going on inside your child’s smile. We also use easy-to-understand language when demonstrating the correct ways to brush and floss. During cleanings, we can administer dental sealants and fluoride treatments to help protect young teeth.

Dentistry for Teens

We can support your teen by showing them which areas of their smile may need a little extra attention and providing beneficial and easy-to-follow dental care tips. We also offer wisdom tooth extractions and can discuss cosmetic dentistry treatments that help bolster confidence.

Traditional & Clear Braces

Since your teen’s jaw is still developing, they may need orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth and keep their smile healthy. At Milner Dental Care, Dr. Lo can provide both traditional metal braces and Invisalign aligners to teens and adults. Your responsible teen could be a good candidate for Invisalign, and traditional braces can be recommended for any member of your family.

Dental Care for Adults

Our general dentist and his team offer a wide variety of services so you can receive care for your changing oral health needs. In addition to providing preventive services, our cosmetic dentistry treatments can help you enhance what you love about your smile and improve on the areas you don’t. Some of these services include:

  • In-office and take-home teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Composite fillings

Restorations for Strong, Healthy Teeth

Helping your smile stay healthy and your teeth stay strong is a top priority for our team. We provide dental restorations such as fillings, crowns, bridges, and implant-supported restorations to help preserve your smile’s function. We can even restore your smile after tooth loss with dental implant placement.

Oral Healthcare for Seniors

We can help treat the effects of gum disease and preserve teeth well into your golden years.

Gum Disease Treatment & Maintenance

At Milner Dental Care, we work to address gum disease through gum tissue assessments, scaling and root planing, and maintenance cleanings. Tooth scaling involves our hygienists carefully removing dental plaque and tartar buildup from the surfaces of teeth and above and below the gum line. Root planing encourages proper gum tissue reattachment and healing. Depending on your level of gum disease, we may schedule maintenance care as often as every three months.

Treating Those with Special Needs

Those with medical, physical, developmental, or cognitive conditions deserve attention that keeps their needs in mind. Dr. Lo and his team understand that individuals with these circumstances can find it more challenging to maintain proper oral hygiene.

We take our time getting to know your loved one’s unique situation, adjusting treatment and education practices accordingly. For additional help during visits, we can administer sedation and sleep dentistry options.
