Why Choose Our Family Dentist?
We offer convenience by meeting the dental needs of your family in one location. This can save you time and money that would otherwise be spent looking for multiple dentists to treat various concerns. It is also easier to track dental health with everyone's records in one place. This way, our team can issue professional advice and recommendations to help you achieve optimal oral health.
We stay current and updated on the latest treatments in the industry, which allows us to perform procedures with greater comfort. We understand that certain treatments can be uncomfortable. Our team uses the Wand® computerized anesthetic delivery for injections with little or no discomfort. We also use nitrous oxide sedation to make your experience as pleasant as possible.
Dentistry for Children
During childhood, teeth are still developing, and the enamel is not as strong. This means that your child's teeth are vulnerable to cavities. At Skinner Family Dentistry, we offer dental healthcare for kids as young as two years old. Our services include fluoride to strengthen teeth and reduce bacteria and sealants for additional protection.
We continually monitor your child's development and provide assessment for orthodontic issues. Whenever necessary, we will refer you to a trusted orthodontist or pediatric dentist if your child requires special treatment.
Dental Care for Teens and Young Adults
Teens and young adults require diligent cleaning and preventive care to maintain dental health. Dr. Skinner provides cleanings and exams and focuses on education to encourage a lifetime of good oral hygiene habits. Like yourself, your teen is also not immune to oral health problems. As such, we offer treatments to correct any present issues tailored to adolescent smiles. These include, but are not limited to:
Improving Adult Oral Health
Our dental solutions and modern techniques can help you renew your smile and prevent future problems. Our restorations include CEREC® same-day crowns, veneers, and inlays and onlays to resolve multiple issues. All treatments use amalgam-free materials for safe and natural-looking results.
If you suffer from extensive tooth decay, we also offer root canal therapy and retreatment to preserve your natural dental structure whenever possible. Sometimes, it is beneficial to your overall health to remove a tooth. Our Mankato family dentist performs gentle extractions to prevent further complications. We will discuss your restoration options for renewing your smile.
We also provide occlusal mouth guards to protect your smile from the damaging side effects of teeth grinding. All available options are designed to help protect your long-term dental health, function, and beauty.
Protecting Your Smile as a Senior
As we age, unique dental challenges can occur. The most common concerns that may affect senior family members include tooth loss and gum disease. While gum disease is common, it can pose real threats to your dental health and overall wellness. Depending on the level of infection, we may be able to treat it with regular cleanings and dental visits.
Our team looks for the following symptoms of gum disease during exams:
- Tender, red, swollen, or bleeding gums
- Persistent bad breath
- Receding gums
- Sensitive teeth
- Loose teeth
Treating Gum Disease
After diagnosing your level of gum disease, Dr. Skinner creates a comprehensive treatment plan. Our dedicated dental hygienist will help you through your periodontal maintenance with scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar and promote healing. We also offer regular exams to ensure that you are healing as expected. We refer you to a trusted local specialist for more complex gum issues or surgical procedures.
Meeting All Tooth Replacement Needs
If you've lost teeth, our practice is well equipped with a variety of tooth replacement options to restore your healthy smile. We offer dental implants if you are missing one or more teeth and All-On-4® to replace an entire arch. You will see our specialist for the surgical placement of the implant posts, and we will attach your custom dental crown, bridge, or denture to complete your restoration.
