It is fairly common for people to want to choose an oral care specialist who can accommodate the many changing facets of their busy lifestyles. Whether you have children or work in public relations, before making that first dental appointment it necessary to understand what services are available to ensure we are a good fit for you. It may be disappointing to discover what you thought was an ideal arrangement may not have everything you require for optimal dental care. Because of this, here at Geelan Dental Care, we pride ourselves on being so devoted to superior dental care that would like for you to know from the very beginning how we may be able to help get the results you want for a wide variety of needs.
Services We Offer
Many parents may feel more comfortable with us because of a specialized focus on Family Dentistry. This means that beyond the regular dental school, we have taken extra steps to go above and beyond when it comes to caring for your toddlers and teenagers. First teeth on average start emerging as early as one month and begin to be replaced by the more permanent ones around the age of seven. By thirteen, many kids may have an odd assortment of both baby and adult teeth, which makes it even more important to their physical development that we watch for proper placement and intercept potential problems before they can happen. A serious underbite could hinder chewing during a time when they are growing the most and require vital nutrition.
For those who may be missing teeth or may require basic oral care, we also offer Restorative Dentistry. If it has been a while since your last visit, we can make it easier for you to feel comfortable in our chair. Not only do we offer cleanings and exams to stay on top of your dental health, but can repair many of the problems we find. Whether you wear dentures and are looking for a better fit or have a small cavity and need a filling, there is a good chance we have what you need right here.
If you feel your dental hygiene is already on par and are just looking for a way to enhance it, there is also the option of Cosmetic Dentistry. For the staining or discoloration of otherwise healthy teeth, we can offer bonding or veneers, which takes a sheet of resin and adheres it to your enamel. It often can be shaped to look exactly like your surrounding teeth and is virtually unnoticeable while giving you the whiter smile you have always wanted.
Sometimes, regardless of how much we need oral care, there can still be underlying anxiety about discomfort, which is why we are also dedicated to the field of Sedation Dentistry. It can be difficult to convince someone to come in for a simple cleaning when they are afraid of the unknown. It is vital for us to be able to offer a way of working with your fear and provide a way to give you the dental care you deserve in the most painless way possible. If your teeth are sensitive, we can even inspect them without having to touch them through the use of intraoral cameras.
A large part of our practice involves family dentistry. We take great pride in treating every member of the family, from infants to grandparents! These treatments are often simple and straightforward, designed to prevent potential problems. A routine appointment typically consists of professional cleaning and check-up exam. We may also recommend an oral cancer screening for adults, and fluoride treatment for children. If we notice any instances of tooth decay or gum disease, you may need restorative treatment.

Restorative dentistry is designed to fix any problems you may have with your teeth, gum tissues, jaw, and bone structure. We may recommend a dental filling to correct instances of minor or moderate decay. If the damage is substantial, you may need a dental crown. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that improves the function and aesthetics of the tooth. If the tooth is beyond saving, Aron Geelan, DMD will perform a tooth extraction. Tooth loss is much more common then you may think. For this reason, we offer several replacement solutions, some of which include bridges, dental implants, and dentures.

Cosmetic dentistry has grown significantly over the past few decades thanks to advancements in technology and technique. Cutting-edge equipment allows us to improve the size, shape, color, and overall appearance of an unsightly tooth. The cosmetic services we provide include teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, dental sealants, and dental veneers & bonding. Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most common procedures we perform due to its effectiveness. We may recommend a porcelain crown for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. The same is true for dental veneers. Both restorations are fabricated using porcelain because of its unmatched aesthetic value.

Unfortunately, we understand that some people experience fear or anxiety when they think about a trip to the dentist. In some cases, these phobias can even prevent a person from receiving the dental care they need to maintain proper oral health. At Geelan Dental Care, we offer sedation dentistry to create a more comfortable and enjoyable experience for our patients. You, too, may qualify for sedation dentistry, especially if your anxiety dictates the frequency of your visits. During your next appointment, ask us about your sedation options. Aron Geelan, DMD and the rest of our team have received extensive training for the safe and effective use of several types of sedation.
