It’s difficult to find that one dental office that can treat all of your dental problems, but our Midlothian VA dental office is that place. Our family dentistry services are available for all ages, from those 2 to 102. We have the training to give you a better, healthier smile.
Biggers Family Dentistry started more than 30 years ago, and since day one, we’ve been treating patients of all ages. We now treat multiple generations of families. We love treating children and showing them the importance of great oral care, while also helping adults overcome their dental issues. We’d love to treat you and your family.
You can become part of our office today by calling us at 804-977-0092 or using the online form to book your first visit. Today we want to share a few ways that we can help a person’s smile regardless of their dental needs or complications.
Start Your Child’s Dental Care Early
It’s important to bring your child to the office early in their lives. The American Dental Association recommends that parents bring children to the dentists whenever their first tooth appears or by the time the child is 1. The early visits are simply for us to monitor the tooth and jawbone development. We even show parents how to brush their children’s teeth. As your child gets a little older, we can provide treatments like dental sealants and fluoride treatments to prevent dental decay and keep your child’s teeth healthy.
Dr. Biggers also provides custom mouthguards for athletes. Having worked for the professional hockey team the Richmond Renegades for 15 years, he knows exactly how to craft the perfect mouthguard. He asks parents to consider custom mouthguards for children who are participating in contact sports. The mouthguards help protect your child’s teeth from trauma or clenching.
Restore Function to Your Smile
As we get older, our dental needs change. A dental office needs to have several tools to help you achieve a healthier smile, whether that means offering dental crowns and bridges or even replacing teeth with dental implants. We can place dental crowns in a single day. Most dental offices need two or three visits to place a dental crown, but we have implemented the latest digital technology to place your dental crowns in about 90 minutes. You won’t need a temporary crown ever again whenever you visit our office.
If you have missing teeth, we can use bridges (which use three crowns to fill the gap created by the missing tooth) or even dental implants . Dental implants are the latest and strongest tooth replacement option in dentistry. Our dental implants are made from titanium, a material that naturally merges with the jawbone. That’s why they are so durable and strong. Our dental implants can be restored with crowns, bridges, or even full dentures.
A Dentist Can Restore Your Health
A dentist does more than look at the health of your teeth. We can provide services that can improve your overall health. A great, healthy smile means having healthy gums and even improving your sleep issues. Gum infections are nothing to avoid. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. The gum infection can start with bleeding or swollen gums, but this problem can quickly spread through the mouth. The disease, if left untreated, will destroy the gums and bones, causing the teeth to fail. People with gum disease should visit the dentist every three to four months so we can monitor the gums.
Snoring or sleep issues can affect your overall health. Sleep apnea is a condition that affects millions of people. It’s a problem that can be dangerous if left untreated. In fact, sleep apnea complications can be deadly and increase your risk of problems like diabetes, heart disease, or stroke. Most people think that the CPAP is the only way to treat sleep apnea, but that’s not true. Most people actually find the CPAP machine intolerable and don’t wear the machine while they sleep. So that won’t help their problems.
At Biggers Family Dentistry, we’re using a comfortable oral appliance to help people with sleep apnea overcome their problems. The oral appliance moves the lower jaw forward to keep the airway open during sleep.
