General Dentistry in Winter Springs, FL
Winter Springs dentist Dr. Christopher Young and the team at Advanced Dental Care have been proudly serving patients in our community for over 20 years.
As a general family practice, we are pleased to offer comprehensive dentistry for patients of all ages. Our goal is to help you maintain optimal oral health, and we all take pride in helping our patients enjoy truly exceptional smiles.
Getting an Early Start
Helping children develop good oral health habits at an early age will help set the stage for a lifetime of problem-free smiles.
We start seeing children as early as age three when many of their baby teeth have emerged and their dental development is ready to take off. Helping your child develop a positive attitude about their oral health care now will benefit them into adolescence and adulthood.
Preventive Care to Protect Your Smile
Professional Exams and Cleanings
Maintaining a healthy smile starts with home health care, but it’s impossible to clean plaque and tartar from every surface of your teeth.
This is where Advanced Dental Care comes in, providing thorough, professional dental cleanings and exams that ensure your mouth is clean and healthy. At each visit, Dr. Young will examine your smile and look for signs of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and oral cancer. The American Dental Association recommends these preventive visits every six months to stay a step ahead of problems.
X-Rays and Diagnostics
New patients may require updated x-rays, which are invaluable in helping us find and treat problems at their earliest stages. Our state-of-the-art digital x-rays allow us to identify oral issues, but we also use them as an educational tool. We can display the images on your chairside monitor so Dr. Young can point out potential problem areas.
When you can see for yourself what the problem is, you can easily understand why treatment is necessary.
Sealants and Fluoride
Many patients who are at a higher risk for decay and disease may benefit from special dental sealants and fluoride treatments, which can help maintain dental health. A sealant is a thin coating of plastic that is applied to uneven chewing surfaces of teeth like molars to seal out decay-causing bacteria.
Restoring a Damaged Smile
When gum disease develops, we must address the problem quickly to reverse the condition and restore your smile to full health. Periodontal therapy by one of our skilled hygienists will thoroughly remove plaque and tartar from your teeth.
Even if you take excellent care of your teeth, you may get a cavity. We are pleased to offer our patients beautiful, seamless repairs created with tooth-colored composite fillings.
The material looks similar to natural dental enamel, so in addition to fillings, we can use it to repair chipped, cracked, or broken teeth or even completely alter the shape of a tooth.
Like most people, you probably don’t have a positive reaction to the thought of having a root canal. But this is a very important procedure that is required when a tooth is so decayed or damaged that the only other option would be extraction.
>Dr. Young has performed hundreds of comfortable root canals for our patients, and our caring team will be by your side to support and encourage you.
Full & Partial Dentures
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, we will be happy to talk to you about restoring your smile with full or partial dentures. Modern dentures are designed to look as much like your natural teeth as possible. We take time to work with you to customize the details so you know what to expect and are thrilled with the results.
Many patients are concerned about their dentures shifting and moving, and we will be happy to talk to you about stabilizing them with dental implants.
