Dental Care for the Whole Family
Maintaining consistent dental care is the best way to ensure a lifetime of smiles. You’ll find a full range of dental services to give your whole family the best care at every stage.
General dentistry includes all dental services that help prevent dental diseases, treat oral conditions, restore damaged teeth, and maintain overall wellness.
Dr. Bob Dalsania offers a wide range of general dentistry services in Covington, including:
- High-quality crowns and bridges.
- Custom-made athletic mouthguards for adults and children and sports guards if you're active in sports or other physical activities.
- Regular checkups. Your next checkup will include a complete examination, a professional cleaning, digital X-rays, intraoral sensors, and an oral cancer screening.
- Protective sealants to help prevent tooth decay.
When a tooth becomes compromised by decay or trauma, it becomes susceptible to infection. If this infection reaches the soft, tender pulp in the center of the tooth that houses the roots, it may cause extreme discomfort and develop an abscess that requires a root canal.
Dr. Bob Dalsania has the training and gentle touch to give you the best root canal therapy with minimal pain or discomfort and superior results.
Periodontal Disease Care
Three out of four adults are affected by periodontal disease during their lifetime, so taking good care of your teeth is essential as you age. Adults over 35 lose more teeth to gum diseases (periodontal disease) than cavities.
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums, which gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. There are numerous disease entities requiring different treatment approaches.
Unfortunately, even with the most diligent home dental care, you can still develop periodontal diseases. Once an infection starts, professional intervention is necessary to prevent its progress.
It's our goal to help you and your family establish ongoing dental care and practice healthy oral hygiene habits at home. Dr. Dalsania has years of experience working with patients of all ages and knows how to help children to feel comfortable while visiting the dentist.
Families throughout Tipton County and beyond bring their children to our office for dental cleanings, exams, and check-ups. We recommend starting teeth cleanings and exams from a very young age to instill good dental health habits as early as possible.
Dr. Dalsania places dental sealants on the back teeth to provide an extra layer of strength and protection against cavities.
The durable sealant material we use guards against bacteria and prevents harmful particles from lingering in small spaces. Sealants are a common treatment for patients of all ages to help fight cavities for the long haul.
Your child's first dental visit should be when their first tooth erupts or at 12 months of age. The first dental visit is usually short and fun. You should be present in the room with your child, and we may ask you to sit in the dental chair with your child on your lap if necessary.
At your child's dental visit, we will:
- Examine their mouth, teeth, and gums.
- Evaluate adverse habits like thumb sucking.
- Check to see if they need fluoride.
- Teach you about cleaning your child's teeth and gums—and how to teach them.
- Suggest a schedule for regular dental visits.
