Hygiene Services

As with most things, a little preventative maintenance goes a long way in preventing future problems. The same goes for teeth. Our staff works closely with our patients to develop an effective preventative program to protect against periodontal disease. Typically, twice a year professional cleanings are adequate to help remove the plaque and tartar build-up that contribute to periodontal (gum) disease. If gum disease is present, we offer treatment to control and contain its progression.

Children's Dentistry

WE LOVE KIDS!

To get your children off to a great start with their dental health we recommend that children visit the dentist by their first birthday. Not only will we check and clean your child's teeth, but we will advise and assist you on changes occurring in your child's mouth. Together we can come up with the best plan to guide your child towards achieving a beautiful, strong and healthy smile.

We want your child to grow up free of dental decay. Unfortunately, decay is so prevalent, it is the second most common disease in the U.S., the first being the common cold. Despite our best efforts, sometimes cavities do occur. For those instances when cavities do form, Dr. Menz and his staff take great care in treating your child with lots of TLC and patience. Dr. Menz has extensive experience providing dental care to children and we expect that your child will be one of his many pediatric patients that actually love going to the dentist.

Orthodontics

Dr. Menz offers orthodontic options for creating bright, beautiful smiles. Interceptive (Phase 1) orthodontics correct abnormalities at an early age. Space maintainers may prevent the need for braces, as early loss of a baby tooth can create space problems. We typically recommend space maintainers to keep room available in the mouth until permanent teeth erupt.
