A child’s first tooth start coming in at around 6 months of age, and the adult set often begins to erupt by age 6 or 7. In order to keep up with these changes and prevent oral disease, regular dental check-ups should begin as soon as possible. We welcome children in our office and make an effort to ensure that each visit is as happy and calm as possible. Once your child has reached approximately the age of 3, it is a good time to bring them to Yost Dental Group. Dr. Yost is experienced in pediatric dentistry and has children of his own. He knows how to teach your children good brushing, flossing, and other dental habits. Dr. Yost can also provide early orthodontic or preventive care to protect their future oral health.
Our team is highly trained and able to provide treatment for all stages of your family’s health. Dr. Yost and our staff are familiar with the wide range of dental issues that can affect you and your loved ones at every age. We offer preventive care such as routine cleanings and oral cancers screenings to prevent any issues from developing. With regular checkups, you can avoid extensive damage and decay by catching any concerns in their earliest stages.
However, if dental damage does occur, we can provide effective restorative care to repair your oral form and function. From dental fillings to dental implants, we can address your unique oral health concerns. If you suffer from nighttime breathing issues or teeth clenching, our office can create a customized oral appliance or bite guard to improve your sleep and oral comfort. We also provide a wide range of cosmetic options to improve the appearance of your smile once you have a healthy foundation.
Sometimes regardless of all your efforts, you may get a cavity or possibly even break a tooth. Our goal at Yost Dental Group is to create beautiful, natural-looking restorations that blend in with your teeth, so that it looks like nothing ever happened! One of our favorite responses that our patients say after getting treatment is “Which tooth did you work on?”
All our restorations are metal-free and hypoallergenic. Each filling or crown is carefully placed so that they not only appear nearly unnoticeable but also restore your ability to chew and function like you always have for years to come. That is the goal of Dr. Yost and the entire team at Yost Dental Group for you!
