Why Choose A Family Dentist?
Today’s patients and families have many choices when it comes to oral health care. Westborough Dental Associates offers dental services that cater to different ages, specific treatments, and specialized needs. We are a family dental practice, welcoming patients in all stages of oral development. Our team provides comprehensive oral care for all of your dental health needs. This includes preventative dental care, personalized smile makeovers, and restorative dental treatments. We are a judgement-free, all-inclusive dental practice. We are your top partner in your journey to excellent dental health.
Family dentistry can make dental care convenient for today’s busy families. We offer a one-stop location for a wide range of dental health needs. Young patients can benefit in several ways when visiting the dentist as a family. Receiving dental care alongside their parent or caregiver can reduce dental anxiety, and their example can lay the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. We aim to prevent issues like dental anxiety and fear of the dentist from developing by educating every patient on good oral habits.
Children’s Dental Services in Westborough
Children’s oral health needs change as they grow. Our dental staff enjoy working with young patients and educating them on how to maintain a healthy smile. We recommend that children begin visiting with us as soon as the first primary teeth have erupted. Early visits can familiarize them with our office atmosphere and enable us to watch for any development-related concerns that can be addressed with early intervention.
Our team will provide age appropriate oral hygiene advice, so that your child can learn how to brush and floss effectively as they grow. Children’s dental care often includes placing dental sealants and creating custom sports mouthguards for your young athletes.
Dental Sealants: Teeth sealants are made of resin material that is placed on the back teeth, or molars, as they develop. This material is safe and effective to use. Dental sealants have been used for over 40 years to seal out tooth decay in children. They do not typically fall off and can last for 10 years with proper oral care. They do not replace tooth fillings, because they are a preventative measure.
Custom-fit sports mouthguard: If you have a young (or old) athlete in the family and they participate in contact sports, they likely wear a mouthguard. Did you know that not all mouthguards are created equal? Store-bought ones lack the superior support and comfort that a custom mouthguard offers. Your dentist is your best resource when it comes to protecting your teeth from trauma.
We also offer fillings, tooth bonding, dental crowns and clear braces to address dental problems along the way. As a family dentist, we enjoy the opportunity to nurture your child’s oral health and continue to meet their needs as they become independent. The consistency and continuity of dental care that a family dentist offers is unmatched. Your child should grow with the same dentist for the most personal dental care, and build a lasting patient-dentist relationship.
