New Patient Special: Exams, X-Rays, & Consultation $79
Gentle, caring dentistry for the whole family
A true family man, Dr. Bernard Ang enjoys nothing more than treating you and your family. As a father himself, he knows how to use the lightest touch for our more fearful patients. Dr. Ang understands how stressful dental visits can be for children and parents – that’s why he’ll make sure to spend quality time with his young patients before starting any treatment in order to develop that all-important bond of trust.
For all his minor patients, Dr. Ang does double duty, explaining everything along the way as he does it and then explaining everything again for Mom & Dad.
Good hygiene habits are instilled when we are children and those habits last a lifetime, so it’s very important to start your kids on the right track in dentistry and keep them there.
Helping your Child Develop Good Oral Health
Dr. Ang sees children as young as three. You can bring your child in for a “meet and greet” or to sit on mom’s lap while she’s getting treatment to get the child used to the dental office.
Dr. Ang offers full services for children, including sealants to help protect against cavities. Dr. Ang and our friendly hygienists will help teach your children good oral hygiene.
Straight Teeth for a Lifetime
Starting children off early with proper tooth care habits is essential to their lifelong oral health. The early years of development can be the most important for a straight smile that is also completely functional. Dr. Ang likes to see children at around 8-9 years of age to check for any possible bite issues, as this ensures everything is growing correctly.
Dr. Ang uses panoramic x-rays to get a picture of the entire head. He’ll evaluate your child’s mouth and jaw to detect issues such as an upper jaw that is too narrow or very crowded teeth. These can become big problems as your child ages; problems such as crowded or crooked teeth, TMJ, or bite issues leading to difficulty chewing, TMJ pain, and headaches.
Dr. Ang can treat your child early and avoid significant problems down the line. A palatal expander, for example, can be worn for just 3-6 months at a young age and can help correct a slew of problems that can face a teenager or young adult.
Professional, thorough, gentle, and kind is how our patients describe our licensed dental hygienists. Using the latest in dental technology to attain a clean, bacteria-free mouth, our hygienists utilize ultrasonic cleaning to, literally, blast the plaque right off your teeth and the Odyssey soft tissue laser to effectively sterilize all the soft tissue in your mouth.
Temporomandibular joint (jaw) problem is often associated with popping or clicking of your jaw, pain that radiates on one or both sides of your face, and, in extreme cases, jaws that “lock.” Dr. Ang will discover and treat the source of the problem in order to relieve TMJ pain. Another specialty of Dr. Ang’s, headache treatment at our facility takes your whole chewing system into account when diagnosing the cause of chronic headaches. He will begin by taking a 3D CAT scan of your head and neck to determine where the pain is coming from and then begin treatment.
Dr. Ang does extensive gum disease treatment. He also makes sure that your gums are fully healthy before starting any treatment. No amount of cosmetic dentistry will be effective if the cushion that holds your teeth is unhealthy.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that fits over your own natural tooth to restore its shape and size and improve appearance. Dr. Ang considers the making of crowns to be an art form and engages the highest in technology to create perfect crowns for his patients.
A dental bridge literally “bridges” the gap between teeth that are missing. Using your natural teeth as the anchors, a bridge usually replaces one or more teeth. Bridges are useful when you have missing teeth and don’t want the rest of your smile to suffer, as a bridge can keep remaining teeth from shifting.
