Family Dental Services
Healthy smiles are important for long-term health.
VISIT THE DENTIST REGULARLY WITH YOUR FAMILY.
Our accomplished dentists have many years of clinical experience. They are also mothers, so they know how much you care about your family’s long-term health. Oral health is closely linked to overall physical health. At Dental Care Associates of Buffalo, we can take care of your whole family’s dental needs, from babies to seniors. It’s never too late to start a regular dental care routine. Come visit our friendly team today.

Dental issues unchecked can become big problems.
PREVENTIVE DENTAL SERVICES
As the old saying goes, prevention is better than cure! Regular preventive dental checkups can stop minor issues from escalating into complex, expensive problems. At each routine checkup, your hygienist will professionally clean your teeth to remove all plaque and tartar and polish your teeth to give you that fresh feeling and renewed confidence in your smile. Your dentist will then perform a full dental evaluation, checking for cavities and signs of gum disease. Some areas of the teeth are difficult to clean even with a great at-home routine. We can apply sealants if necessary to protect those hard-to-get-to places from plaque and decay.
Oral cancer screenings are also part of our routine evaluations. These help to identify any early signs of oral cancer, which is important because if we can detect abnormalities early, your prognosis will be much better than if the concern is discovered in a more advanced stage.
Cavities today can cause complex dental issues tomorrow.
WE HAVE A RANGE OF FILLING MATERIALS AVAILABLE.
An important part of preventive dentistry is checking for cavities. At Dental Care Associates of Buffalo, we offer a range of solutions to fix cavities, including tooth-colored (composite), amalgam, gold, and porcelain fillings. Tooth-colored fillings are typically the most popular choice as they are a natural-looking, durable, and affordable option. Porcelain fillings can also provide a natural-looking result that seamlessly blends in with your smile.
Our Family Dentistry Services Help You
Damaged or infected teeth and gums hurt.
ROOT CANALS CAN HELP.
Sometimes when the pulp of a tooth is badly damaged or infected, you may need a root canal. Signs there may be something wrong include severe pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, and swelling. There’s no need to be worried about a root canal, though; our team will ensure you are completely comfortable during treatment. Your dentist will gently remove the infected pulp and, depending on your individual needs, prepare the tooth for a crown in order to protect it from further damage. At Dental Care Associates of Buffalo, we offer gold, zirconia, and lab-created crowns. E.max crowns are also available for anterior teeth.
Your comfort is our top priority.
GENTLE TOOTH EXTRACTIONS
In circumstances where a tooth cannot be saved, you will need an extraction. We only recommend an extraction if your tooth is infected, decayed, or damaged beyond repair. To avoid the need for tooth extractions, our best recommendation is to keep up with your preventive dental appointments. Most of the extractions we see are needed because patients haven’t visited the dentist in a long while and their oral health has suffered as a result. Some extractions are needed due to traumatic injuries, however, so we recommend using a mouth guard if you’re playing contact sports, like hockey, to protect your teeth.
Gum health is important, too.
PERIODONTAL THERAPY FOR HEALTHY GUMS
Healthy gums are just as important as healthy teeth when it comes to maintaining optimal oral health. Untreated gum problems can result in tooth loss, which is why at every dental appointment, your hygienist will check for signs of periodontal disease. For patients who are diagnosed with periodontal disease, we offer scaling and root planing. This is a form of deep cleaning in which we remove all tartar and bacteria around and beneath the gumline and smooth the roots of your teeth. This process makes it harder for plaque to accumulate in those areas in the future.
We’re here when you need us.
