Family Dentistry

Kessler Dental Associates is a full-service dental practice that treats patients of all ages. Our team is comprised of talented general dentists and specialists like periodontists to help our patients establish and maintain great oral health. Since our practice is home to experienced oral health professionals, we can offer a number of services that might not be available elsewhere from one, convenient location.

Our guests at Kessler Dental Associates enjoy a one-stop destination for everything from general checkups and cleanings to placing dental implants and administering cosmetic dental treatments.

General Dentistry Services for All Ages

Establishing good oral health begins with visiting the dentist for routine checkups and cleanings. Checkups and cleanings involve a thorough evaluation of the health of all oral structures. Our team looks for abnormalities that could reveal issues with the occlusion, gums, and teeth. Checkups also include screenings for oral cancer and periodontal disease – two very destructive and pervasive oral health conditions.

People of all ages should visit the dentist every six months for professional cleanings and checkups. Maintaining regular contact with your oral health care provider helps improve the odds of early detection and intervention to save precious oral tissue from disease.

Protecting Oral Health & Preventive Care

When it comes to preventing common oral health conditions, patients have treatment options that can reduce their negative effects and prevent the development of future complications. Professional cleanings, in addition to maintaining good oral health, help prevent health concerns caused by periodontal disease and tooth decay. Cleanings remove substances that cannot be brushed or flossed away – especially tartar. Tartar accumulation is a major contributor to gum disease and tooth loss. Our dental hygienists provide gentle and thorough cleanings to keep teeth healthy.

Other preventive treatment options include the use of fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Administering fluoride treatments are scientifically proven to strengthen tooth enamel – the mineralized coating that protects teeth from cavity-causing bacteria and acids. Moreover, fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in food and water. Fluoride administered in clinical settings under the care of professionals is safe and effective at protecting the health of teeth.

Dental sealants are another preventive treatment option. This treatment is non-invasive and ideal for children and adults whose molars are at risk for developing decay. Molars are very susceptible to decay because of their location and structure. Placing sealants on teeth will fill in their pits and fissures with a disease-resistant, undetectable plastic compound.

Kessler Dental Associates is accepting new patients. If you’re looking for a new oral healthcare provider, give us a call to set up a checkup with our caring team.

Common Family Dentistry Questions
Why should I go to the dentist regularly?

People should visit the dentist regularly to protect their oral health. By attending regular appointments for checkups and cleanings, you give Kessler Dental Associates the opportunity to prevent problems before they contribute to permanent damage. Additionally, early detection of oral disease saves patients time and money spent on extensive dental work and corrective oral surgery.

Checkups and cleanings might also reveal things about your wellbeing that you didn’t consider. Sometimes checkups reveal early signs of diabetes or bone atrophy. Our dentists also screen for oral cancer during checkups, which can save lives through early detection and treatment.

How often should I brush and floss?

Thorough brushing and flossing is the foundation of maintaining good oral health and a clean mouth. Oral hygiene practices control plaque and tartar accumulation, substances that contribute to dental health concerns like periodontal disease and cavities.

People should brush their teeth at least twice a day. Each brushing should last for about two minutes so that all surfaces of teeth, the gums, the tongue, and the roof of the mouth are brushed. It’s best to brush before one goes to bed and when one wakes up.

Patients of all ages should floss. The American Dental Association encourages people to floss once per day, every day. Since brushing only cleans about 70% of oral surfaces, flossing is necessary for keeping the gum line and spaces between teeth free of plaque and tartar.

How often should I have a cleaning?

Even if a person brushes and flosses as thoroughly as possible, he or she still needs dental cleanings. In fact, the ADA advises people to receive two professional cleanings a year, spaced about six months apart. Dental cleanings are professional treatments that remove surface debris from teeth and gums. Having frequent cleanings lowers a person’s risks for developing tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Our team at Kessler Dental Associates administers gentle, effective dental cleanings. We strive to lower our patients’ risks of disease with preventive treatments like dental cleanings. These visits to our practice are also great for checking up on the state of your oral health. We will look for signs of common bad habits like brushing too vigorously or flossing too infrequently. When we see areas in need of improvement, we will gladly offer helpful tips and advice so that you can enjoy vibrant oral health.

What is sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is a comfort amenity that helps people develop positive experiences during dental treatment and oral surgery. There are different forms of sedation dentistry, all each presenting unique benefits for various treatment protocols.

Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is a mild sedative that has pain-relieving benefits and relaxing properties. This form of sedation dentistry is drug-free and its effects wear off quickly so that patients can resume normal activities after treatment.

Stronger sedation is available to keep patients comfortable during more invasive or complex procedures. For instance, oral sedation (prescription tablets) is commonly used to improve emotional and physical comfort during treatments like periodontal therapy and preparing teeth for restorations.

The objective with sedation dentistry is to help our guests maintain comfort throughout their care. This service is beneficial for those who fear dental settings and treatment. If you have questions about your comfort or whether sedation dentistry is right for you, call Kessler Dental Associates to speak with a member of our team.
