Think about all of the medical specialists you and your family may need to see in a year. Unlike medicine, dentistry is not a profession of many specialists. You can often find one dentist who will care for most of your family’s dental needs. In Washington, MO, that family dentist is Dr. James G. Mace.
An Ounce of Prevention…
As your family dentist, Dr. Mace focuses on prevention. With this in mind, we recommend that everyone in your family schedule checkups every six months at a minimum. With regularly scheduled appointments, Dr. Mace and his team are able to spot oral health problems before you even notice any symptoms. At a checkup, your teeth will be professionally cleaned by one of our dental hygienists to prevent plaque buildup, which causes tooth decay. When necessary, other services provided at a checkup include fluoride treatments to strengthen enamel or x-rays that reveal cavities or other oral and jaw bone troubles that would be invisible to the naked eye. Of course, if we find a problem, such as a cavity, Dr. Mace can provide a dental filling.
A Family Dentist and More
Beyond the basics of family dentistry, Dr. Mace is also well trained and practiced in providing restorative and cosmetic treatments including:
- Dental Implants
- Inlays and Onlays
- Fixed Bridges
- Teeth Whitening
- TMJ Therapy
- Sleep Apnea Treatment
- Periodontal Therapies
To stay current with the continuously advancing technologies, materials and treatments in modern dentistry, Dr. Mace takes 50 to 70 hours of continuing education, which is far more than the 25 hours required by the Missouri Dental Board. So, whether your dental health only requires regular professional cleaning maintenance, the occasional filling, or more extensive treatment, you can rest easy knowing that Dr. Mace is your family dentist.
