Gentle Family Dentistry: Tooth Extractions

Our top priority is to preserve our patients’ natural teeth. Unfortunately, sometimes a tooth extraction is necessary to prevent an infection or to control discomfort. As a family dental group, we provide comfortable, convenient tooth extractions. With oral sedation available, we can remove a tooth without causing anxiety that can typically be associated with tooth extraction. We also offer several options for replacing missing teeth.

Gentle Family Dentistry: Root Canal Therapy

Root canals have a bad name, but Dr. Kathryn Alderman is determined to change this negative perception about them. She has done hundreds of root canals and believes this procedure should never cause anxiety or discomfort for any of her patients.

Gentle Family Dentistry: Children’s Dentistry

It is important to teach children about the importance of great dental habits at an early age. By establishing those good habits, children grow up without the worry of dental problems and learn to enjoy going to the dentist instead of being afraid. Our family dentists enjoy seeing children and providing children’s dentistry.

Gentle Family Dentistry: Dentures

If you are missing all or most of your teeth, you may be a great candidate for implant dentures or a partial. We offer different options for implant retained dentures at our office, customized to meet unique the cosmetic and functional needs of each patient. We also repair dentures!
