Find Care at Every Stage Of Life
Develop a Relationship With Your Dentist
It is common for dental fears and anxiety to arise when a patient has not established a relationship that is based on trust with their dentist and staff. Our practice allows you to continue to see the same dentist throughout your life making it ideal to help you to feel safe, and comfortable during your exam and treatment. When your dentist sees each member of your family on a routine basis, they are able to identify special needs and take early precautions. Many teenagers feel more comfortable discussing their oral hygiene practice with honesty when they have developed a relationship with their dentist that they have seen since toddler age.
What Treatments are Right for Me and My Family?
Each patient is a unique individual and may require a specific treatment based on their dental needs and goals. Our goal is to make it convenient for you and provide a wide selection of treatments for patients of all ages. This ensures that everyone in the family gets the care they need. Grandmother might need a pair of dentures, Dad might need a dental crown replacement to protect that broken tooth, one of the teenager’s might need Invisalign to straighten that pearly smile, and little brother might need regular check-ups, cleanings, and examinations to ensure they have the proper foundation for good oral health and wellness. By focusing on the patient as an individual, we will customize treatment plans that work for each person in your family, based on their oral health.
Family Dentistry for Excellent Dental Care
You 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 Best Way to Prevent Cavities
There 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 Braces
When 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 Dentist
Dental 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. 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.
