Get Little Ones Acclimated To Our No Stress Dental Office


Dental anxiety is a real and common problem in the United States. Upwards of 15 million individuals avoid the dentist because they’re afraid. And dental phobia outranks both public speaking and even death!


Sometimes dental anxiety is caused by bad childhood experiences at the dentist. But it’s often due to a fear of the unknown that was created as a child. We understand that a dental office can be mysterious and intimidating to children. That’s why we offer a separate area for kiddos in our office in order to lower their trepidation.


But we also want you to bring your little ones with you to your dental appointments. Part of our family dentistry philosophy is treating every single patient like a family member. When we get to know your kids from the start, they don’t see us as strangers with strange tools. They see us as their friends.


It’s important to get started early with good dental hygiene habits. Your little ones should be:


  • Brushing twice every day
  • Flossing once every day
  • Using an alcohol-free antiseptic rinse once every day
  • Visiting our office for exams and cleanings every six months


Preventive care is the cornerstone of general dentistry. In addition to cleanings and exams, we can boost your child’s defenses against bacteria with extra fluoride treatments and varnishes. And when visiting the dentist is like visiting a friend, your child won’t have any qualms about letting us work.


Most importantly, we think mental health is just as important as oral health. Even if we’re able to clean your child’s teeth while they’re afraid, we don’t want to put them under the emotional stress of enduring a frightening procedure. Let’s work together to make every visit a positive one.


Give Teens And Young Adults Self-Confidence With Cosmetic Dentistry


For some of us, metal braces were a rite of passage. The aching teeth after adjustments and the sharp metal taught us how to be tough. Dietary restrictions and being called “braceface” allowed us to really appreciate getting our braces off after up to four years. It’s something every adolescent should have to suffer.


Just kidding! We may have endured metal braces, but we’re happy to report that your teen can avoid them with clear aligners from our office. You can choose between ClearCorrect and Invisalign. Both options have several benefits:


  • You can straighten teeth invisibly with aligners made of cloud-resistant, clear plastic
  • You can remove them to eat or brush your teeth, which means you can eat whatever you want
  • You can be sure of the end result due to computer-generated preview smiles


In addition to correcting alignment, you or your teen/young adult may be interested in other minor cosmetic dentistry procedures. A simple teeth whitening kit used in the comfort of your own home is a great complement to straighter teeth.


Reduce The Signs Of Aging With Restorative Dentistry


Don’t forget that you deserve great dental care, too. If your teeth are showing some wear and tear, you can choose from a number of options to restore your smile to its natural beauty.


You can treat teeth that are damaged or decayed with our restorative dentistry options. Whether it’s a tooth-colored filling or root canal therapy capped with a realistic dental crown, you deserve a solution that looks and feels natural. We have a wide variety of options for missing teeth as well, from dental implants to dentures. Partner with us on a personalized plan to get you the smile of your dreams.


You really can have it all. Don’t settle for anything less than the best patient-focused family dentistry  from a Billings, MT dentist who respects your schedule. Call Yellowstone Family Dentistry at 406-245-7026 to schedule appointments for everyone!
