Family Dentist In Grand Junction, CO
As a family dentist, Dr. Jacobson looks after people at all stages of life. From the first baby tooth to the golden years, families love that they can go to one location and see the same doctor every time. We are a small office where your family becomes a part of ours.
Since many people think that family dentistry and general dentistry are the same thing you may be surprised to hear that they are actually a bit different. While a general dentist doesn’t specialize in any particular field of dentistry, a family dentist is trained to provide full dental services and treatments to patients of all ages.
Why is it a good idea to choose a family dentist? Instead of needing to make a dental appointment for you and your child separately, now everyone in the family can get the proper dental treatment they need in the convenience of one location.
Here at our Grand Junction, CO dental office we pride ourselves on being able to care for anyone’s smiles, no matter if it’s a toddler or a senior. Plus, we cover all forms of dentistry from general and preventive to cosmetic to meet the needs of every member of your family.
Plus, it’s important that your child begins to feel comfortable and at ease when going for routine dental visits and the easiest way to do this is to have them come in by their first birthday. By coming to the same convenient, familiar office with a dental team that is compassionate and ready to make you and your child’s next trip easier we’ll come to establish rapport with your whole family so each and every visit is simple and stress-free. Plus, the more we know about you the more tailored treatments we can provide to keep all mouths healthy and happy.
We know that a lot goes into the decision-making process when it comes to choosing a family dentist your whole family can trust. When you come in for your first visit make sure to ask us any questions that you may have about your oral health. After all, our goal is to make sure that you feel comfortable and feel like you are being listened and attended to at all times. We believe going to the dentist should be an easy and pleasant experience for the home family and when you visit our office we hope you agree.
Dental Cleanings & Exams
Most of our patients visit us every 6 months for a thorough oral health exam and cleaning. Every exam will include a periodontal screening to assess the health of your gums. Once a year we take digital x-rays to keep an eye out for any problem areas.
Routine cleanings and exams lower your risk of gum disease. Dr. Jacobson can catch decay as soon as it starts, which is good for your teeth and your pocketbook.
Using toothpaste with fluoride is one of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy. Our office also offers fluoride treatments to keep your teeth strong and cavity free. Most insurance plans will pay for fluoride in children, and some will cover it for adults too. With or without insurance, it is an economical way to strengthen your teeth.
Fluoride treatments are also a great way to relieve the pain of sensitive teeth.
One of the best ways to protect your children’s teeth is with a dental sealant. The most likely location for a cavity in your child’s mouth is on the biting surface of the molar. The natural pits in the teeth are a good place for bacteria and food particles to hide and a toothbrush can’t always clean them out. Sealants are a coating that the dentist can put on the tooth to fill in these pits.
