What Family Dental Services Do You Offer?

At City Place Dental, you can expect all-inclusive dentistry that emphasizes prevention, comfort, and safety. While we are your one-stop-shop for family dentistry, we do not deliver care with a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, our dentist takes time to get to know you, discussing your concerns, and answering questions.

Dr. Achikeh makes recommendations based on your individual needs, working with you to craft a plan that is all your own. Treatment strategies can include one or multiple solutions to ensure all needs are met. Many of our family dentistry services include, but are not limited to:

Why Choose a Family Dentist?

For example, receiving dental care in one location eliminates the need to make multiple appointments with different providers. This is helpful when you or your children require care to treat specific concerns.

Since Dr. Achikeh is familiar with your overall and oral health history, he can provide you with the most accurate care possible. Our dentist applies his experience and skill with advanced technology to diagnose and treat various oral health issues.

Gentle & Advanced Dentistry for Children

Getting your child familiar with the dental office and routine care is vital for their oral health now and well into the future. Our team begins treating children at age two and continues to support them into adulthood. We understand the lasting impact visits can have on young children, and we do everything possible to promote positivity and comfort. We do this by combining compassion with respect and child-friendly language.

Our dentist goes the extra mile to help make your child’s dental care easy and fun. Our family dentist enjoys teaching kids how to brush and floss and the importance of good dental hygiene. He can perform many treatments designed to protect young smiles.

Custom Dental Care for Teens

We understand that your teenager has a lot to juggle socially and academically, which is why we continue to support them with relevant prevention, education, and personalized treatment.

Besides regular cleaning and exams, our dentist provides custom sport and bruxism mouth guards and wisdom teeth extractions. The teen years are often the best time for orthodontics, and Dr. Engel offers comprehensive options. These include everything from clear and metal braces to headgear, expanders, and retainers. We also offer Invisalign® if your teen is eligible.

Dynamic Dentistry for Adults & Seniors

At City Place Dental, we are proud to state that more seniors and adults are keeping their natural teeth for longer. However, it is essential to note that this is made possible through diligent oral hygiene and regular prevention. Our team knows the unique challenges you face as you age, and that dental damage and wear does occur.

We offer many ways to address specific issues, improve aesthetics, and highlight natural beauty. Whether you wish to reduce staining, eliminate infection, or replace missing teeth, our team has got you covered!

Popular services for seniors and adults include:

Gum disease treatment: We provide scaling and root planing, ARESTIN anti-biotics, and related gum tissue procedures with dental lasers.

Dental implants: Dr. Achikeh offers full implant placement and restoration. We offer beautiful crowns, bridges, and dentures supported by dental implants to rebuild your smile. With implants, our dentist can replace one tooth, or a complete arch.

Restorative dentistry: Our family dental team has treatments to repair and protect your smile. Our dentist performs root canal therapy to save natural teeth from infection and decay whenever possible. He provides extractions for teeth deemed unsalvageable. Available treatments also include composite fillings, inlays and onlays.
