At Oakmont Advanced Dentistry, you have lots of choices whether you’re missing just one tooth or a whole mouthful of teeth. We offer several dental implant options, including mini dental implants.
Unlike many general dental practices, we both place and restore implants so you can complete the entire dental implant process in our office. If you’d rather not get implants, you can choose traditional dentures or a dental bridge. Our dentists will help you find the solution that best suits your smile.

When your child is about 3-4 months old, you should begin wiping his gums with a clean cloth during bath time. This will help prepare his gums for baby teeth to emerge. You can continue with the method until your baby has two to four teeth. At that point, you should transition to an infant toothbrush and toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that are touching, you will need to begin using floss between those teeth.
There are electric toothbrushes now with features such as timers that tell when you should move from one part of your mouth to another and settings for different types of cleaning. While one of those may help you improve your brushing technique, a manual brush will work fine too. The main thing is to select a brush with soft bristles and a head that fits comfortably in your mouth. Avoid hard bristles and overly vigorous brushing, as they can actually damage your teeth.
We offer two kinds of orthodontic treatment. Both SureSmile clear plastic aligners and Six Month Smiles braces are far more discreet than conventional metal braces, so they are well suited to adult smiles. They both typically work in less time than braces too. Our dentists will help you determine which option will work best for you.
