Throughout life, people’s mouths go through many changes- from the eruption of the first tooth to the possible need for tooth replacement many years later. Dr. Jablonski has studied every stage of oral development and has guidance and recommendations ready for all family members.
Lifelong oral health begins with caring for the very first tooth! Dr. Jablonski knows that having good dental visits when we are young will build positive associations and help reduce the fear of the dentist later in life. Our team takes extra care when introducing children to the dental environment, and makes sure each child is comfortable and happy throughout their visit. Often, monitoring development and giving parents guidance are the main goals early on. If treatment is needed, we slowly build the trust and confidence of our kiddos so that the experience is great.
The teenage years are a time when many children transition from relying on their parents to taking on more personal responsibility. Dr. Jablonski and the hygiene team take the time to educate our teenage patients on topics such as good oral hygiene habits, tooth healthy foods and beverages, the risks of oral cancer, and substances that should be avoided, so they can make healthy decisions throughout their lives. This is also the time period when important screenings are performed for proper growth of the jaw, the need for braces, and the development of wisdom teeth. If intervention is recommended, we work closely with our local dental partners to coordinate the best care for your young adult.
Dentistry for adults encompasses everything from routine cleanings and exams to complex treatments for decayed, missing, or unsightly teeth. We appreciate the uniqueness of each person, and craft plans in collaboration with our patients that best address both their health and their priorities. Often, we see adults who have avoided the dentist for years due to fear or a previous bad experience, and now have many needs. Dr. Jablonski has worked to make sure her techniques are as gentle as possible, and also offers Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) and oral sedation options, if needed. Our team believes in treating the whole person, not just your smile, and can tailor a plan to fit you at each stage of adulthood.
