Our Family Dentist in San Pedro
Children and adults have widely different dental needs, and they need to see a dentist who can provide the unique solutions they need. Our dentist understands these differences and is experienced in treating all members of a family, young and old alike. Garrick Denny, DDS, Inc. is proud to provide family dentistry to the people of San Pedro, Rancho Palos Verdes, and the surrounding communities.
Treatments for Children
The oral health of children is a complicated matter. Since kids are still learning the proper way to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, they are more prone to cavities and decay than the standard adult.
We provide meticulous care to ensure the lasting health of their smiles. Our San Pedro family dentist is able to offer both fluoride treatments and sealants to pediatric dental patients. As a mineral that naturally strengthens and restores the enamel of teeth, fluoride is very effective in preventing decay. At the end of a dental appointment, Dr. Denny can use a concentrated solution of fluoride to give your child a much healthier smile. Sealants, on the other hand, are plastic coverings that prevent food from getting stuck in your child’s back molars. The molars have numerous folds in which food can easily get stuck, which in turn feed the bacteria that cause decay. Until children are adept enough at brushing to better clean these folds, sealants may be one of the best solutions to prevent tooth decay.
Treatments for Adults
Adults face their own oral health challenges as well with gum disease. Gingivitis and periodontitis are common dental health problems, and Dr. Denny has a solution for them both.
Routine dental cleanings are an important step in preventing and treating gum disease, which affects half of all adults in the United States. The next step up is a periodontal deep cleaning that can remove the plaque and tartar which cause gum disease. Once the periodontal pocket is clean, the gums can heal to support the teeth once more. These treatments and others enable Dr. Denny to help adults keep their smiles healthy.
