Daily brushing and flossing are two of the most effective ways to keep oral health problems at bay. However, to maximize the results of your hygiene routine, we recommend scheduling an appointment at Robson Family Dental every six months. During these visits, Dr. Robson will examine your teeth, gums, and jaw, looking for even the most hidden signs of disease.
Getting regular dental examinations allows our dentist to treat underlying oral health issues before you develop permanent symptoms. Contact us to schedule your regular oral hygiene & general dentistry visit at our Grand Rapids office.
Our team uses advanced dental technology to help treat you more effectively and accurately. Digital imaging creates clearer images of your bones and muscles, allowing us to better understand the root cause of your problems. Our imaging technology includes digital X-rays and cone-beam scanners, providing us with a comprehensive view of your bone and muscular structures.
Discover how digital dental imaging can improve your treatment by scheduling your consultation at our Grand Rapids office.
Cavities are common and completely treatable. However, by treating them sooner, you’ll experience less discomfort and decay. Root canals and fillings at Robson Family Dental stop cavities in their tracks and keep them from recurring by removing infected tissue and preventing harmful bacteria from hiding in your teeth. Don’t wait — if you believe you have a cavity, contact us right away.
You can prevent tooth loss, decay, and pain by treating your cavities with root canals and fillings. We’ll recommend any necessary cavity treatments when you attend your oral hygiene visit every six months.
At Robson Family Dental, we do everything we can to keep your natural teeth healthy in your mouth. But sometimes, for the sake of your overall health, the best treatment option is for us to remove the tooth. This happens when a tooth becomes too decayed or the gums too infected for the tooth to remain healthily in your mouth.
Dr. Robson only recommends this procedure when it’s absolutely necessary. Thankfully, we have several restorative methods available to fill any gaps in your smile with a customized replacement, made to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
Your children start building their oral hygiene habits as soon as their first tooth erupts from the gum line. Dr. Robson recommends bringing your child to Robson Family Dental as that tooth begins to grow into your child’s mouth. We can help them understand the importance of regular brushing and flossing, and we’ll give you pointers on how to help them maintain their oral health.
Make sure your child feels comfortable at the dentist and starts building strong oral hygiene habits early by scheduling your pediatric appointment at our Grand Rapids dental office.
