Your dental care needs will change as you get older, and your family dentist will take that into account. Mill Creek Dental offers family dentistry for the whole family, ensuring that each member of your family gets the comprehensive care they need. Our dentists are compassionate, have worked with patients of all ages, and are experts at putting your mind at ease.
Whether you have just added a new member to your family or are looking for “the best family dentist near me,” Mill Creek Dental is here for you. We offer an extensive array of family dental services including, but not limited to:
- Dental Exams
- Dental Fillings
- Root Canals

Prevention is often better than a cure, which is why we recommend regular dental exams and cleanings every six months for all family members. These exams give our dentists a chance to examine your mouth and identify potential problems before they become severe. A regular exam is also a chance for our cleaning technicians to remove plaque and tartar using modern sonic methods.
Even if you brush and floss regularly, routine dental exams and cleanings can take your oral health to the next level and ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy throughout your lifetime.
Most people will experience tooth decay at some point in their lives. Many factors, including accumulated bacteria, excess sugar, and poor oral hygiene, play a role in tooth decay.
Unfortunately, tooth decay is irreversible and will eventually lead to cavities. The best way to prevent cavities from spreading and causing more decay is to plug and seal them with a filling.
Dentists use several different materials for dental fillings, including gold, silver amalgam, and composite fillings. Your dentist at Mill Creek Dental will go over the advantages and disadvantages of every type of filling with you to enable you to choose the best option to meet your needs.
We can also use dental fillings as a way to repair a cracked or chipped tooth. This gives the tooth more support and helps it blend in with the rest of your teeth.
If you lose a tooth, you may find that eating and speaking become challenging and that the teeth around the hole start drifting into the space left by the lost tooth. To prevent this, we can provide a dental bridge.
A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth that fits in the gap left behind by your original tooth. This not only makes your teeth look complete again, but it also helps you eat and speak more easily and prevents bacterial accumulation.
The dental bridge itself has two crowns that fit on the teeth on either side of the gap, with the replacement tooth in between. These crowns help support the new tooth while also keeping your teeth in their allocated places.
Installing dental bridges is a lengthy process that will take at least two appointments. If you need a dental bridge, your dentist will outline the process and provide you with the necessary preparation and aftercare to ensure a successful procedure.
The mere mention of the word ‘root canal’ can cause even the bravest person to break into a cold sweat. While this procedure was indeed tedious and painful in the past, modern dental practices have made it significantly less terrifying and much less painful.
Sometimes a tooth gets so severely decayed that it can become infected. If this infection travels to the tooth root, it can cause painful abscesses and other complications. The best way to save the tooth is to remove the nerve and pulp and then clean and seal off the inside of the tooth.
If your dentist recommends a root canal to save your tooth, be sure not to panic. We will walk you through the procedure and ensure your comfort throughout the process. Learn more about our cosmetic dentistry services.
