Children are a big part of our practice. We like to see children as early as they can be comfortable in our office. Early exams can help us to evaluate tooth development, jaw alignment and airway function. We welcome the opportunity to work with your child through their toddler and elementary years...helping them to prevent tooth decay, straighten a crooked smile and ensure a healthy mouth...while giving them the inspiration to keep their teeth for a lifetime.
Appearance can be very important to teenage boys and girls. A bright, straight smile can give them additional confidence and increased self esteem. Your son or daughter's faithful dedication to good home care habits can now be rewarded with attention to that change in tooth shade, the small chip from the playground dall in sixth grade, or other smile imperfections just now becoming most important in a young person's life.
Quite a few of our young adults were teen patients of Dr. Draper and appreciate his careful attention to their smile and oral health through the years. Others have brought with them a lifetime of dental challenges, expressing the desire to begin a program of dental recovery and reviltalization. Our Doctors share with them a professional evaluation of their oral condition, carefully explain realistic options, and demonstrate the results they can expect from previously postponed dental repairs, therapies for stubborn stains, and other dental improvements.
Many of the patients who began originally with Dr. Draper have enjoyed years of trouble free oral health. Most are grandparents now. With their life's obligations mostly behind them, many are treating themselves to The Smile They've Always Wanted. Others are just now realizing the advantages to replacing that longtime missing tooth or updating a bite that relies on full or partial dentures. It's not uncommon for our mature patients to tell us... Hey, now it's my turn!
