We understand you want to ensure that your family is getting the best dental services available to them. We treat each patient as an individual at our dental practice. There is no one-size-fits-all approach in our office. Instead, Dr. Bowersox takes the time with every patient to thoroughly evaluate the state of their smile.

Then, he will determine what treatment plan best meets their needs. Additionally, we use some of the best dental tools available to provide efficient and cost-effective care. Learn about our family dentistry services below.

Do you offer dental services for children?

Yes! Dr. Bowersox and his staff can provide children’s dental services in Westminster. You should bring your child to the office after the eruption of their first tooth, or around their first birthday. Our team offers friendly care to all of our patients. We make sure to go over your child’s specific needs at every stage of their dental development to help them practice good oral hygiene at home. Our pediatric services may include:

  • The diagnosis and treatment of dental caries (tooth decay).
  • Sealants for teeth to prevent tooth decay.
  • Fluoride treatments for teeth to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent tooth decay.
  • Extraction of baby teeth.
  • Placement of dental implants in children who have lost their natural teeth due to disease or injury.
  • Orthodontics for children with crooked teeth or other problems with their bite.

Dr. Bowersox is qualified in both general dentistry and pediatric dentistry. He will be able to diagnose any issues a child may have with their oral health.

I have a teenager who needs orthodontic care. Can you help with that?

Yes. We offer clear braces as the perfect choice to patients seeking orthodontic care. Our clear braces provide discreet treatment for patients of all ages that want to avoid traditional metal braces.

Teenagers are especially happy to hear that they can avoid the brackets and wires with our ClearCorrect alternative. Instead, ClearCorrect works via an aligner system that slowly encourages teeth to shift into a straighter position.

What are our options to replace a full set of teeth?

If you or someone you know needs to replace a full set of teeth, bring them to our office for an exam. We can provide modern dentures and partials to meet their specific needs. Our team also provides dental implants to patients looking for more secure and permanent dentures.

With the help of a few dental implants, the dentures have something to keep them anchored into the mouth. We also offer a variety of other restorative dentistry options for patients in need of replacing a single tooth or restoring the health of their gums or jawbone.

What Should I Do to Improve My Gum Health?

Your gums are the glue that keeps your mouth together. Gums hold your teeth in place, and battle against harmful bacteria that grow in your mouth. You should floss frequently to care for your gums.

When you floss, you get rid of the plaque and food particles that might contain bacteria and loosen your teeth. It is also important to schedule regular dental checkups to make sure your gums are healthy and not bleeding or developing deep pockets. 

How Can I Improve My Brushing Techniques?

You should spend two minutes brushing your teeth twice a day. Not everyone brushes their teeth properly. Your toothbrush should be moved back and forth across your teeth in a circular motion. Each tooth should be brushed on the outside, inside, and chewing surface. Those who adhere to this method are less likely to experience dental issues.
