It’s not uncommon for parents to hear laughter and giggles during their children’s’ visits. Dr. Riechers takes the extra time needed with children of all ages and uses age-appropriate terms to help children understand what is going on and what to expect, as well as make it an interesting and enjoyable experience.

Maintenance of oral health is essential, and we here at Compassionate Dentistry work to ensure our patients have all the tools and tips necessary for healthy dental outcomes. Cavity prevention and gum care lead to more than just a winning smile.. poor oral health has been linked to several chronic diseases like diabetes, and heart disease. Check out our blog for some great articles about dental care and prevention. But when you do slip a bit on your regular teeth cleaning routine, our gentle, experienced hygienists will keep you comfortable while she cleans your teeth. Kelli uses dental hygienist techniques such as ultrasonic scaling, hand scaling, and polishing to clean your teeth. She will also examine the health of your gum tissue.
It’s natural for us to have anxiety about the unknown or when remembering past pain or negative experiences. However, avoiding dental care because of anxiety may end up causing more stress, pain, and further anxiety when something simple like a small cavity or inflamed gums rapidly becomes much worse. Dr. Riechers offers three options for dental sedation: nitrous oxide, oral medication and nitrous oxide combined with oral medication. All of these options can be combined with local anesthesia (numbing), to relieve pain and anxiety.
While prevention is central to our dental philosophy, Dr. Sara Riechers and her staff understand that damage to teeth or gums because of wear, trauma, or oral disease is common, so our dental team has many tools and techniques at our disposal to restore and maintain the appearance and functionality of teeth and keep gums healthy while relieving pain.
In some cases, teeth with heavy damage are not able to be restored, and teeth that are removed or missing need to be replaced – options for replacement include bridges, implants, and dentures. Gums that have serious infections or are receding may need special treatments or surgery to prevent loose teeth from being infected, falling out, or needing removal.
