Dental Care for the Whole Family!

At Sea Brite dental we provide care for all ranges of patients–from pediatrics to geriatrics.


Bacteria from the mothers mouth is transmitted to the baby from birth every time we kiss them. This is the bacteria that causes tooth decay and periodontal disease. Good oral hygiene from birth needs to be practiced to prevent life long problems which is why we specialize in pediatric dentistry.


Stressing good oral hygiene, teaching good diet skills and the relationship to decay and monitoring eruption of permanent teeth for early orthodontic intervention are all covered.


As adolescents turn into teenagers and become more independent, it is important to continue to stress good home care and diet management. Signs of bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) can become more evident. Appliances to reduce the devastating affects of tooth wear may be recommended. Read more┬╗

Young Adults to Middle Age

This is when we really begin to manage any oral problems, stressing the link between oral health and systemic disease. Monitoring for periodontal problems besides managing the health of the teeth themselves becomes imperative. Sleep apnea can occur as we reach middle age. In this condition, you stop breathing while you are sleeping leading to fatigue, excessive drowsiness and reduced focus. As we mature, having a beautiful smile becomes more important. Cosmetic dentistry can have a profound affect on your confidence. Teeth are like car engines, they need constant monitoring and routine care!

Our More “Mature” Patients

As we age it becomes harder to keep our mouths clean because our dexterity decreases as does our ability to see close up. More frequent recalls and home care instructions are imperative. Even cosmetic dentistry can be done to improve our self image as we mature. Poor oral hygiene has been associated with increased amounts of respiratory pathogens. Breathing in these pathogens and failure of our immune system as we age can lead to pneumonia, a life threatening condition for people over 65.

No matter your age or stage of life, Sea Brite Dental can get you on the path to better oral health and a brighter smile! Call today to get started.
