If you are like most families these days, you are busy. Really busy. The kids have school, you have work and other commitments, and after school, the kids have activities. And usually, unfortunately, each kid has different activities.
That’s a lot of driving around town, and that’s not taking into account medical appointments. At Edgewood Dental Care, we can’t simplify your entire schedule. But we can simplify one small part of it by being a one-stop shop for your entire family’s dental needs. Our practice is designed to be convenient and welcoming for families — little kids, big kids, parents, and even grandparents.
If you live the Edgewood, KY area, call Edgewood Dental Care for an appointment at 859-474-7830.
We Make Managing Your Family’s Dental Care Easy
A family dentist not only welcomes patients of all ages, but understands that busy families have lots of things to do and a limited amount of time.
At Edgewood Dental Care, we have fourteen — yes, fourteen — examination rooms and a large staff of dental hygienists. This means, whether your clan is small or large, you can schedule all of your appointments for the same time. Because why make four (or five, or six, or more) visits when we can take care of all of you in one?
We are also able to offer longer hours than most dentists, which makes it easier for you to schedule visits around whatever other commitments you have. Our Edgewood, KY office is open from 7 a.m. through 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and we are even open Saturdays from 8 a.m. through 2 p.m.
We Are There for Your Family’s Dental Emergencies
A soccer ball to the mouth. A fall off a bike. Sudden and unexplained tooth pain. If you or a family member experiences a dental emergency, call Edgewood Dental Care as soon as possible. We offer same-day appointments for emergency situations, and thanks to our longer hours, we are often open when other dental offices are closed. We are even available Saturdays from 8 a.m. through 2 p.m.
Dental emergencies that require immediate care include:
- Broken or cracked teeth
- A knocked-out tooth (teeth that are knocked out can be reattached under the right conditions)
- Unexplained tooth pain
- An injury to the soft tissue of the mouth
- A filling or crown that’s fallen out.
A Wide Range of Services
We are a full-service dental practice that offers everything from cleanings and exams to cosmetic procedures to restorations to sleep apnea and TMJ treatments. We also try to educate our patients about the importance of good preventive dentistry, which is the best way to keep teeth healthy and strong for life.
While sealants may be applied at any age, they are known to be an especially effective way of protecting children’s teeth. They reduce decay by 80% and, according to the American Dental Association, kids without sealants have almost three time more cavities than kids without them.
While they are not a substitution for brushing and flossing, sealants provide an additional layer of protection for teeth. A sealant is a plastic coating that is typically applied to the chewing surfaces of the back molars. It creates a barrier that disease-causing bacteria have difficulty penetrating. The process is simple, fast, and painless.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that’s vital for good dental health. It keeps the tooth enamel strong and better able to resist acid attacks from bacteria. The fluoride in your tooth enamel is continuously eroding in a process called demineralization. So it’s essential that we replace what’s been lost. Fluoride may be obtained through drinking water, toothpaste, and mouthwashes. At Edgewood Dental Care, we offer professional fluoride treatments and varnishes to give you and your kids’ teeth an extra boost.
For any family member who participates in activities that could potentially harm the mouth, a protective mouthguard is a must. At our office, we will craft a custom guard perfectly fitted to the patient. Our mouthguards are more comfortable than one-size-fits-all drugstore varieties.
Especially when you have packed schedules and little time to cook, it’s tough to feed your family right. But a healthy diet is essential to good dental (and overall) health. We are happy to discuss, in a totally non-judgemental way, things you can do to improve your family’s eating habits.
