A general dentist should provide services that are crucial for the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. In order to maintain good oral hygiene, you should schedule an appointment with our team at Aspire Dental Health right away.
At our location in South Weymouth, MA, Dr. Katie Murphy, Dr. Taylor Darmetko and associates have gained a wealth of knowledge about general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry through years of training at their respective dental schools and through other technical programs.
When visiting Aspire Dental Health, our team will ensure your comfort in every aspect, regardless of the procedure you will be receiving. Our dentists are experienced in basic preventative care and other more advanced procedures such as root canals, the removal of wisdom teeth, implants, and crowns.
A general dentist is a patient’s primary dental care provider and is the person who will look after your teeth and the teeth of your spouse and children for many years. It’s our commitment at Aspire Dental Health to be available to care for all the dental issues and milestones that your family will experience in the coming years.
Our preventative care program starts with your first appointment. It doesn’t matter if you’re 30 or 3, our team will make you aware of the importance of keeping your teeth healthy. It starts with regular check-ups and cleanings but will also continue at home. Every patient will be instructed about the need to brush their teeth at least twice a day, use a mouthwash after each brushing, and floss as frequently as possible.
Even our young patients will be taught the proper techniques for good brushing and proper oral hygiene. Newborns should make their first trip to the dentist shortly after their first birthday or after their first tooth breaks through the gums.
Keeping tabs on the growth and position of a newborn’s teeth can prevent overcrowding and other dental issues as they age. Teeth that come in straight at an early age have a much better chance of being healthy and won’t become compacted because they are being monitored by our dentists.
As long as your children are under our care, we’ll provide top-quality treatment for every possible situation. If your child loses a tooth in a bicycle accident, or has a tooth damaged in a sporting event, we’ll be there to put the tooth back in place or work with the parents to determine the best course of treatment.
Very few children make it to adulthood without experiencing a cavity so we’ll help to remove any tooth decay and be sure the soft tissue around a tooth doesn’t become exposed to other periodontal issues. Dental services such as teeth cleanings, cavity fillings, and crowns are just some of the procedures that are available to our patients.
When your children turn into adolescents, there will be other dental hurdles to overcome. Many young adults will need to have their wisdom teeth removed to make way for emerging teeth or to relieve pain caused by overcrowding beneath the gums. Wisdom teeth may also need to be removed so our young patients can have braces or other teeth-aligning appliances placed on their teeth.
It’s imperative that patients meet with their general dentist annually to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. Here at Aspire Dental Health, our dentists provide your mouth with top quality care.
The Aspire Dental team and your general dentist will assist you with any other treatments from dental implants to periodontal procedures that will protect the teeth from decay, gingivitis, plaque and other periodontal issues. Our team is advanced in straightening your smile.
