How Our Family Dentist Can Support You

We want to make your trip to the dentist as convenient and as straightforward as possible. We offer flexible hours to fit the unique needs of working professionals, parents, and our community's seniors. Our staff includes two experienced dental hygienists, so we can simultaneously see multiple patients for routine cleanings and exams.

When you visit our practice, you can set up appointments for multiple family members in one day. Doing so allows you to access the treatments you and your loved ones need without scheduling a series of appointments over several days or visiting more than one office. Our practice is conveniently located off I-80 near several local schools. You can easily stop by after school for your child's dental cleaning and have your treatments addressed on the same day.

Effective Dentistry for Young Children

We want to help your child become accustomed to regular dental visits and take care to explain our treatments in simple, kid-friendly language. If your child has any questions, we are happy to answer them. We gently apply fluoride and sealants to your child's teeth during their visit to help prevent cavities and maintain their smile.

It's essential to monitor your child's dental development, and we are attentive to any signs that they may need orthodontic treatments. We refer you to a trusted pediatric specialist if we notice anything that requires a second opinion.

Caring for the Dental Needs of Teens

As your kid grows older, it's important to keep visiting our Tinley Park family dentist for regular cleanings and exams. Our dental exams include an annual set of x-rays, so your teen can see their smile shift into its final alignment over the years. We also perform careful visual screens for cancer for all of our patients and alert you to anything we detect. Education is a critical component of our approach to family dentistry, and we provide advice on the best ways for your teen to keep their teeth clean and prevent future issues.

If your teen has teeth that are crooked or misaligned, they may qualify for an Invisalign® treatment. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place over time, without the hassle of uncomfortable dental hardware. We offer Invisalign to responsible teens and adults to craft a beautiful, straightened smile.

For teens that are involved in high-contact sports or activities, we offer custom-fitted mouthguards. Wearing a properly fitted mouthguard minimizes your chances of suffering damage to your teeth or gums while playing. We want you to thoroughly enjoy your sport and feel confident that your smile is well-protected at the same time!

Taking Care of Your Smile as an Adult

Our substantial range of cosmetic and restorative treatments allow us to rejuvenate your one-of-a-kind smile. Our dentists provide:

  • Dental crowns to restore the shape, size, and structure of teeth that are worn down, chipped, or cracked
  • Dental bridges to smoothly fill sizeable gaps in your smile with natural-looking replacement teeth and dental crowns
  • Veneers to enhance the color and appearance of your teeth with thin porcelain shells
  • Teeth whitening to change the color of your teeth

Prompt Treatment for Dental Emergencies

illustration of tooth and emergency kitWe understand how stressful it can be for you or a family member to suffer an unexpected dental emergency. Common dental emergencies include lost or dislodged teeth, broken dental restorations, bleeding from the gums, severe tooth pain, or an abscess in the gums. If you suspect that you are dealing with a dental emergency, please call our office immediately. We respond promptly, even after hours, and can provide you with advice regarding your situation.

When possible, we schedule you a same-day appointment with one of our dentists. In the case of an extremely urgent emergency, such as an accident involving a lost tooth, we may be able to see you after hours to provide timely care.

Alleviating Tooth Pain from Decayed or Infected Teeth

If you are suffering from significant pain caused by an infection or decay, we may be able to save your tooth with a procedure called root canal therapy. Our family dentists surgically remove the pulp, bacteria, and infected tissue from your tooth. We then carefully seal the tooth to prevent future infections.

We try to keep your natural teeth in place for as long as possible to preserve your smile's structure and alignment. If it's not possible to save your tooth with root canal therapy, we can perform an extraction to protect your oral health.
