Our Elk Grove dental team at Meadowbrook Family Dental provides each and every one of our patients with quality comprehensive care that is tailored to their needs. From preventive and restorative work to cosmetic services to get your teeth in tip-top shape, we can help you get the smile you have always dreamed of.
Your body’s overall well-being is closely linked to the health of your mouth. Quality preventive care is important to ensuring that your teeth and gums are healthy and not causing your body other health issues, including heart problems. In addition to keeping your body healthy, preventive care provided by your dentist in Elk Grove, Dr. Lau, allows our team to provide you with the most conservative care possible because we are able to diagnose small issues and treat them before they become bigger problems.
The last place you want to be when you have a dental emergency is waiting in a cold, sterile hospitable emergency room. Most hospitals do not have the proper equipment to handle dental emergencies. Seldom will you find an ER doctor who is able to properly treat a dental crisis. At Meadowbrook Family Dental, we provide excellent treatment in a comforting, relaxing atmosphere. Your urgent dental situation will be addressed with skill, expertise and compassion.
Routine dental exams and cleanings are recommended approximately every six months. During your appointment, Elk Grove dentist Dr. Lau will visually examine your teeth, gums, cheeks, throat, neck, and jaw for any signs of problems, including early signs of throat or oral cancer. If X-rays are needed, we will take digital images of your teeth and jaw. Finally, one of our dental hygienists will clean and polish your teeth, so you’ll leave our office with a bright, beautiful smile.
Dental sealants protect molars and premolars against decay and help keep cavities at bay.
Acid caused by plaque and sugars in your mouth can damage the enamel of your teeth. Fluoride treatments help make teeth more resistant to these acids to help protect against decay and damage.
If you find yourself regularly waking in the morning with headaches or jaw pain, you could be grinding or clenching your teeth at night. These actions cause wear and tear to teeth, and can eventually cause them to weaken so much that they are easily damaged or broken. Ask our Elk Grove dental team how a custom nightguard can help you stop grinding your teeth, protect your teeth from damage, and allow you to wake up feeling refreshed.
If you or your teen plays contact sports, we recommend wearing a custom athletic mouthguard. Mouthguards protect your teeth, tongue, jaw, gums, and mouth in general from damage caused by injuries to the face during sports.
