At Holladay Dental Studio, we take care of the whole family. We offer all general dentistry services as well as specialized services including implant placement and restoration, sedation options, cosmetic procedures, and TMJ treatment. We pride ourselves on being able to do everything under one roof – no need to travel around seeing multiple surgeons and specialists!
We see patients of all ages. Our main patient base is middle-age adults, but we love to see and enjoy treating older adults as well as young adults and children. Our office is the perfect place to bring your entire family. We like to start seeing children around the age of 7 or 8 – however, you can bring your child in for regular cleanings as early as 3 years old.
Seeing children this young allows for early observation and lets us watch for any potential dental health problems. It also allows us to make sure your children are learning proper hygiene habits. When you bring your child with you to your appointment, your child also gets the chance to get used to our comfortable office, friendly staff, and hi-tech equipment before they need any work done of their own. This often helps to reduce dental anxiety and can help your child to live a happier, healthier life with fewer dental health problems.
According to the World Health Organization, certain dental health problems can afflict some age groups more than others. Below are some oral health problems to watch out for, depending on your age and gender. These statistics were provided by the WHO and take into account a global population.
- 16-40% of children experience dental trauma due to accidents or violence.
- 60-90% of school-aged children have cavities.
- Almost 100% of adults have cavities.
- 15-20% of middle-aged adults have severe gum disease. Gum disease can result in tooth loss.
- 30% of older adults have no natural teeth.
- Oral cancer is more prevalent in men and older adults.
You can help to prevent some of these problems by practicing a healthy lifestyle. This can include eating a healthy diet, practicing good oral hygiene, and avoiding harmful tobacco and alcohol use. Remember that many dental health problems can affect you at any age, so taking good care of your oral and overall health is important.
We also provide many preventative treatment options here at Holladay Dental Studio, including sealants, fluoride treatment, mouthguards, and more. Check out our page on preventative dentistry for more information on services and on how to properly take care of your teeth and gums.
