Gentle & Caring Dentistry in Amherst, NH
Our entire Amherst Village Dental team is passionate about the success of your smile. Not simply for one member of your family, but the whole clan. Dr. Bernard Ang enjoys nothing more than being a part of your overall health. In fact, as a father himself, he understands how dentistry can elicit fear, thus he’s made it his mission to spend quality time with each patient before starting any treatment.
The effort he puts toward relationship building helps to develop an essential bond of trust for all. Since good hygiene habits are instilled at an early age, we want to make certain your oral health will have a positive impact for a lifetime.
Good Oral Health Begins at Youth
Dr. Ang sees children as young as three. He begins teaching them about the importance of good oral hygiene, and he does so in a way as to get the parents involved too. He wants your child to feel comfortable going to the dentist. Because Dr. Ang offers sealants and fluoride to help protect against cavities, he provides an easy-to-learn education for your child on the value of teeth brushing, and how visiting the dentist can be a worthwhile experience.
Your Smile Is Why We’re Here
The early years of child development can be the most important for a straight smile that is also completely functional. Dr. Ang focuses primarily on bite correction and wants to ensure the jaw, teeth, and all components that make up your smile are growing correctly and in alignment.
Our Amherst Village Dental office uses the CBCT technology to retrieve an image of a patient’s entire skull. From there, Dr. Ang evaluates your mouth and jaw to detect any imbalances that are causing teeth problems. He checks for an upper jaw that is too narrow, or very crowded teeth that can lead to overbite and under-bite. He believes that correcting the bite can remedy issues that usually lead to difficulty chewing and persistent headaches caused by TMJ.
Dr. Ang encourages straight teeth for a lifetime and shows you and your child how to avoid significant problems down the road. His methods and caring nature can help the youth, as well as adults, have the smile of their dreams.
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.
