At TLC Dental Center in Cherry Hill, NJ, Dr. Julie Kardon and our team offer restorative and cosmetic treatments for every stage of life. For our patients, this means that we rarely if ever need to refer patients to an outside dental clinic. Not every dental office accepts children. Our gentle team understands how to work with newborns, toddlers, and young children. No matter what stage of life your family member is at, you can trust our staff to work with them with compassion and care.
Dental Care For Newborns and Young Children
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommends that children have their first dental exam by age 1 or within six months of the emergence of their first tooth. During your child’s first exam, Dr. Kardon will physically examine your child’s gums. X-rays or other forms of imaging may be taken. The goal of these early exams is to catch potential dental problems or congenital defects early on. Healthy primary teeth are critical to ensuring that adult teeth emerge properly later in adolescence.
Children are more prone to cavities. This is partly due to diet and oral hygiene habits. As your toddler grows, our staff will begin training him or her on how to properly brush. Our emphasis will be on prevention and early treatments. We recommend that your child undergo twice a year cleanings and exams. If we do find a cavity, early detection will allow Dr. Kardon to remove and seal the cavity with minimal discomfort to your child. Sealants are another preventative treatment that is proven to reduce the risk of tooth decay.
Dental Care for Teenagers
Once your teenager has reached a certain age, he or she will become eligible to undergo orthodontic treatment. Our office offers Invisalign clear aligner trays. Invisalign makes a special type of tray for teenagers that monitors the number of hours they are wearing the aligners each day. The trays must be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. Teenagers are ideal candidates for orthodontic treatments. They are old enough to manage changing and cleaning the trays, and they are young enough to enjoy the benefits of a straighter smile for a lifetime. If you have a teenager, one of our staff will be glad to explain the benefits of Invisalign treatments.
Dental Care for Adults
As we age, our teeth require unique treatments to maintain their strength and luster. Our office offers a wide range of general dentistry procedures and cosmetic treatments that can help you age while maintaining a beautiful smile.
Adults can benefit from:
- Periodic teeth whitening treatments
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental bonding for minor cosmetic blemishes
Dental Care for Senior Citizens
Even adults who maintain good oral hygiene habits can suffer tooth loss or an unexpected infection. Genetic factors and wear and tear can add up over the decades. Although restorative treatments like dental implants and tooth extractions sound painful, Dr. Kardon is an expert sedation dentist who can ensure that you remain comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment.
Common restorative treatments we offer include:
- Porcelain crowns
- Dental implants
- Implant-supported bridges
- Implant-supported crowns
