Gentle Children's Dentistry

A lifetime of excellent oral habits begins with your child's first dental visit. Our family dentist, Dr. Brian Toogood, loves working with children's unique personalities and approaches their dental needs with a gentle and compassionate touch. Not only does he provide them with proper oral hygiene instructions, but he helps them get used to visiting us.

We can begin seeing children as soon as three years old. Our dental practice is happy to adapt our services to fit your child's comfort level. Our offerings include, but are not limited to:

Respectful Dentistry for Teens

Our staff treats them with respect while also helping them understand that proper oral care can have a wealth of benefits for their overall well-being. We'll cover everything from brushing and flossing techniques to a healthy diet.

Our family dental office provides orthodontic care for mild to moderate correction. Additionally, we'll monitor your teen's dental development and alert you to any changes that may need more extensive orthodontics. We know several trusted orthodontists in the area that we can refer you to. Our team can also perform wisdom teeth extractions as a standalone service or a precursor to orthodontic correction.

Comprehensive Dental Care for Adults

Unlike children and teens, adults' dental needs vary widely and encompass preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Our team has extensive experience helping adults get the smile of their dreams. In addition, we enjoy answering questions and encourage you to ask any that come to mind during your visit.

Some of the most popular dental treatments for adults includes restorative options like crowns, bridges, veneers, and dental implants. Whether you have damaged or missing teeth, we can help you find the perfect solution for a healthy and beautiful smile.

Additional dental services for adults include:

Oral Health Care for Seniors

Dental care for seniors is similar to addressing the dental needs of adults, but with a more significant emphasis on gum disease prevention. Seniors are at an increased risk of gum complications and require a dentist with an in-depth understanding of prevention and treatment. Dr. Toogood has spent years helping improve the oral health of seniors. We're pleased to offer numerous treatments for gum disease prevention, including root planing and scaling.

Some of the advanced technology found at our office includes an iTero Digital Scanner and a diode laser. The iTero digital scanner generates a 3D image of your entire mouth while increasing the accuracy of our diagnoses and decreasing your time spent in the exam chair. We also utilize a diode laser that increases the accuracy of procedures like frenectomies and fibroma removal while speeding up recovery times and minimizing discomfort.

The Importance of Sleep

At Big Country Dental, we know that difficulty sleeping can negatively affect your quality of life. We offer numerous sleep appliances to help you get the rest you deserve. The process starts with referring you to a sleep study specialist, where your sleep habits will be closely monitored. Once we receive the results, we'll carefully craft your sleep appliance and customize it for a comfortable fit and more restful nights.
