Family Dentistry

Family Dentistry

Family dentistry involves providing dental treatment to all the members of the family. It includes procedures such as dental cleaning, applying fillings, teeth whitening, bonding, root canal therapy, treating gum diseases, and carrying out restorations such as crowns, bridges, inlays, onlays, implants, etc.

At Gila Ridge Dental, we have highly experienced dentists like Drs. Thor G. Thorson, Stephen S. Garner, and Jason R. Boeskin who treat patients belonging to all age groups. This is what makes our practice one of the most sought-after ones in the Yuma, AZ region.

Why should you choose us as your family dentist?

  • We can treat all the members of your family irrespective of their age.
  • Our dentists maintain a well-updated dental and medical record of patients. This helps them to provide better dental care to all their regular patients.
  • You wouldn't need to visit different dentists to get different dental issues treated. Our practice would serve as a one-stop destination to all oral problems of all the members of your family.
  • We would have a benefit of familiarity with your family, which allows us to interact better during the treatment.

Pediatric dentistry

Providing the right dental care to your children is essential as the growth of their teeth and their oral health vastly depends on it. We, as family dentists, would monitor your child's teeth right from infancy and make sure their oral health doesn't take a hit. The benefit of familiarity plays a major role here, as children wouldn't make a lot of fuss when they're being treated by their regular dentist. We also provide tips to parents regarding the oral health of their child and how best to prevent issues such as cavities or malocclusion during childhood.

Adult dentistry

We suggest our patients visit us for a regular consultation once every six months. This way, we can make sure you’re not developing any oral infections, cavities, malocclusion, gum diseases, etc. In addition to routine consultations, we lay out the best restorative, cosmetic and preventive dental treatment to our patients. Some of the treatment options we provide are as follows:

Fillings: We treat, disinfect and fill cavities with a tooth-colored filling material.

Crowns and bridges: Crowns cover an entire tooth and help to treat cracks, chipping, wear and discoloration. Bridges can be used to replace lost teeth.

Dental cleaning and whitening: The accumulated plaque and tartar will be removed from the tooth and root surfaces by scaling and root planing. In case the teeth are discolored, teeth whitening can bring them back to their original shade.

Implants and dentures: Implants are metal studs fixed to the jawbone. A porcelain crown can be mounted over it to replace extracted teeth. Dentures are removable prosthetics that can replace a large number of missing teeth.

Along with these, we offer treatment for damaged and misaligned teeth, periodontal disease, oral cancer, root canal infection, etc. and help you get the smile that you’ve always dreamt of.
