Family Services

We take pride in our ability to serve all ages.  Treatment plans are tailored accordingly.  Our team enjoys caring for even your youngest family member.

Dr Pal's preventative services focus on prevention while preserving your smile at a time that is most convenient for your whole family.

PREVENTION

First and foremost is to avoid disease and to catch it in the early stages for more effective treatment.   Often disease is genetic and knowing your whole family history, not unlike your family physician, is very important.

PRESERVATION

The second aspect of treating your family is to help preserve your original teeth.  The more we can educate your entire family on the importance of home care and the more regular can be with yearly dental visits the more likely we are able to help you to prevent tooth loss.  Not to mention more invasive and costly procedures that can arise from neglect.

CONVENIENCE

And finally, there is the simple fact of convenience.  Dr Pal and her team welcome your entire family and will work hard to ensure each of you get the care you need when it is most convenient for you and your busy schedule.

Prevention for Children

Tooth decay can begin at any age and children are particularly susceptible. Almost half of children aged 2 - 11 years have had decayed baby teeth, while 32% of kids between ages 9 – 11 years have had decay in their permanent teeth. Baby formula with added sugar and heavily-sugared fruit juices that young children are given are major contributing factors these numbers. Even a mother’s milk can cause cavities in baby teeth because it contains sugar.

Prevention for Teens

Cavities are not just for little kids, and gum disease isn’t just for grandma or grandpa. Teens are just as prone as the rest of the family to get decay and disease. Anyone who has a teenager knows it’s a lot of work, and convincing them to keep their teeth clean and healthy is part of that heavy workload. With a teen’s busy life and not-always-healthy eating choices, it’s tricky to monitor his or her oral care. That’s why it’s important to get them in for regular six-month dental check-ups and cleanings. Dr. Tobias can help you in keeping your teen’s smile healthy and bright.

Prevention for Adults

Have you ever wondered how cavities are created? It begins with the bad bacteria in your mouth. Everyone has bacteria in their mouth – some good, some bad. But if your mouth is not regularly cleaned, those bad bacteria make plaque.

Then the plaque works with sugars and starches that you eat, and together they create acid. If this acid isn’t cleaned away, it begins to erode your tooth enamel. The enamel is your teeth’s body guard against tooth decay. If that protection is destroyed, your teeth are defenseless against the acid that causes decay.
