From toddlers to seniors, a family dentist is trained to provide high-quality care at every stage in life. Dr. James Pechloff provides this type of comprehensive dental care for families in Wauwatosa, WI. Read below to learn some of the benefits of having a family dentist like Dr. Pechloff.

 

One-stop shop

When it comes to your family's dental health, convenience might not be the first thing you consider to be a priority. However, trying to keep separate appointment dates, times, and locations in order can be overwhelming; the extra time off of work and school to attend every appointment can also be untimely and difficult to schedule. With a family dentist like Dr. Pechloff, however, your entire family will share the same dental office in the same Wauwatosa location. In most cases, our experienced administrative staff can even schedule everyone's twice-yearly cleanings on the same day, eliminating the need to be out of school or work on multiple days, helping to make your busy life a little less stressful.

 

Familiarity

That nervous feeling before a dental appointment is one that affects countless people, especially children and teenagers. That's another reason why having a family dentist like Dr. Pechloff in Wauwatosa is so helpful. Getting used to the sights, sounds, and basic routine of a dental office can help kids grow up feeling more comfortable about visiting the dentist. Once your kids get older, you won't have to worry about starting that process over either, as they can continue to visit their family dentist throughout their adulthood.

 

Individualized care

The familiarity aspect of family dentistry goes both ways! Since there's no need to switch dentists, your dental records stay in one place and allow Dr. Pechloff and his team to give you and your family members personalized care at every appointment. Your charts will stay accurate and your preferences will be noted and remembered each time you visit us.

Everyone needs a dentist they can rely on, and if you lead a household, you know how important having this trustworthy care is for your loved ones. That's why it is so great to have someone like your Wauwatosa family dentist, Dr. James Pechloff, providing care for your entire family. Here are some of the services provided by Dr. Pechloff's Wauwatosa practice, along with some general tips to help you have the healthiest mouth possible!

Provided Procedures

  • Dental Bonding: Generally performed to improve the appearance of a discolored or damaged tooth, this operation consists of your dentist applying an etching solution on the tooth surface before administering a composite resin that matches the color of your other teeth. The composite is then molded to the right shape and hardened with a curing light.
  • Veneers: These custom tooth-covering shells are made of thin porcelain and are used to resurface an individual's teeth, especially if they're stained as result of drinking coffee or tea, smoking cigarettes, chewing tobacco, taking tetracycline-containing medicine, or possessing poor hygiene. Veneers also fix teeth that are mishappened, crooked, overcrowded, or irregularly shaped.
  • Crowns: A dental crown is a porcelain cap that reinforces week teeth or covers up defects such as cracks, dents, and chips. Crowns are especially important for severely decayed teeth that have had portions removed of them.
  • Root Canal: When a cavity is deep enough to infiltrate the enamel, it reaches the nerve-rich layer of pulp causing pain. Your family dentist will need to remove the pulp, clean and disinfect the canal from any bacteria remaining, then seal the canal to prevent bacteria from entering.

Caring For Your Teeth

Here are a few tips to stay healthy:

  • Visit your dentist for bi-annual dental appointments to maintain your oral health
  • Avoid eating hard candies and sugary food
  • Brush your teeth twice a day for two full minutes
  • Floss your teeth before bed to preserve your crowns and natural teeth
  • Drink plenty of water to remove food debris
  • Eat fruits and vegetables that'll help avoid cavities
