Life is busy with a family. Between school, sports, work, and home, things can get pretty hectic. The last thing you need to worry about is how to make time to get your family to the dentist. We understand this and offer many conveniences to make it easy and enjoyable for you to get dental care.
Free Wi-Fi, comfortable waiting room, kids room with video games and toys, convenient location, ample parking, and family block appointments.
For those who have dental anxiety, Hermon Family Dental offers many options. The office has been designed to be less anxiety producing. Our treatment rooms have been designed to create a non-threatening environment free of the anxiety producing elements. Most of the instruments and dental equipment are kept behind the patient, out of sight and out of mind. All you need to do is to sit in one of our comfortable chairs and relax. You can listen to music, lie quietly, or watch a movie or TV show during your appointment. If you are a candidate, nitrous oxide or sedation may also be available, allowing for most of your dental work to be completed in fewer appointments.
At Hermon Family Dental we love to see kids. We also recognize that children are not just small adults. They behave and perceive the world in a vastly different manner than an adult and have different dental needs as well. Our #1 goal in treating children is to make every experience as positive as possible so that they will return for every appointment without fear and anxiety that so many adults have from their own dental experiences. We want to make it fun to come to the dentist. Our office is very kid friendly with a kid’s play area complete with toys and video games. Our treatment rooms have TVs and a non-threatening environment. After your child’s visit they will be rewarded with a sticker or toy of their choosing.
In the late teenage years, most young adults’ wisdom teeth or third molars erupt. The wisdom teeth are more easily removed with less complications and better healing in a younger patient. Not all wisdom teeth need to be removed, however many will due to the propensity to develop a condition called pericoronitis. Pericoronitis occurs when the flap of gum overlying the wisdom tooth gets bacteria and debris underneath and becomes infected. The most common solution to this problem is to remove the wisdom tooth after the infection has been treated with an antibiotic. Some wisdom teeth can become impacted or stuck, where they will not erupt on their own and may cause damage to the adjacent permanent teeth.
Cavities are caused by the sugar eating bacteria in our mouths producing acid that break down the tooth structure. After the dentist has removed the cavity, a filling is placed to restore what is missing. We use mostly tooth colored fillings (composite) and occasionally silver fillings (amalgam) in specific situations where a tooth colored filling would not be suited. At Hermon Family Dental we take great pride and care in restoring your tooth back to ideal form and appearance.
