Family Dentistry for Excellent Dental CareYou already have a lot on your plate. Driving kids to school and practice, grocery shopping, meeting at work, visits to the in-laws... it's never-ending. The last thing you need is to visit several different dental offices. At Crossroads Family Dentistry, we are a family dental office. We can help your whole family with comprehensive family dentistry solutions.
My Child's First VisitWhen you bring your child to Crossroads Family Dentistry in Colorado Springs, CO for their first family dentistry appointment with Dr. Tyng, we will clean teeth and conduct a thorough exam.
That's only part of a first appointment, however. It's very important to help your child feel welcome and safe. That's why we call the first time a "fun visit". By making it fun and interesting, we can help your child think positively about dental visits. That means you'll have an easier time getting them to go in the future.
The Best Way to Prevent CavitiesThere is no single "best" way to prevent tooth decay. It takes several things. Brushing and flossing regularly is vital. So is avoiding sugary snacks like soda and candy. That's because the bacteria behind cavities thrive off of sugar and carbs. But one overlooked key to preventing cavities is to visit our Colorado Springs, CO dental office every six months. Only dentists have the training and tools necessary to get your teeth truly clean.
Not Every Teenager Needs Metal BracesWhen adult teeth come in, they almost always have problems. A tooth can come in crooked. Another could be slightly turned. You can even be missing adult teeth due to some quirk of genetics. You cannot get orthodontic treatments to fix these problems until your teeth have mostly stopped moving. (They actually never completely stop.) That's why braces are often used with teens—the teeth and bone have developed enough to accept treatment. However, Dr. Tyng offer a better alternative. Invisalign® moves the teeth like braces, but they are made of clear plastic. They fit comfortably over the teeth and are almost impossible to notice when worn.
My Family Hates Going to the DentistDental anxiety is a real problem. Some people have had bad experiences in the past. Others just heard about bad experiences, and that's enough to make things hard to deal with. It can impact anyone in your family. There are a few ways we can help. We offer a comfort menu so you can feel relaxed in our office. All of our padded chairs even have massagers built in. To help get past stronger anxiety, you can get nitrous oxide (laughing gas). This induces such a relaxed feeling that most people can get through their treatments with ease.
