Can one dentist provide everything a growing family needs? Well, Dr. Bernard Pak, family dentist in Kirkland, WA, can. Kirkland Smiles Dental Care seeks to deliver the finest, most comfortable and individualized care possible. To do that, the staff keep themselves well-educated and skilled and also get to know what each family member needs in terms of preventive, restorative and cosmetic services. Whatever you and your loved ones require for optimal oral health and well-being, find it at Kirkland Smiles Dental Care.
Prevention begins early
Trust your child's teeth and gums to Dr. Pak. From toddlerhood on, he provides gentle cleanings and check-ups, watching tooth and jaw development and ensuring teeth are free from dental decay. He understands that the needs of children are distinct from those of their parents and that dentistry must be prompt and kind.
For adults and seniors, Dr. Pak creates a relaxed atmosphere. Watch a movie as you get your check-up which includes:
- Monitoring of gum pockets as indicators of gingival health
- Assessment of bite, alignment and condition of fillings, crowns, and tooth replacements
- Quick and painless oral cancer screening
Dr. Pak reminds everyone that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, especially where dental health is concerned. He gives his patients pointers on a healthy diet and good brushing and flossing routines, and Dr. Pak offers fluoride treatments and plastic sealants to patients of all ages.
Restoration is a must
Fix a damaged tooth, or lose it. This applies to primary teeth, too. Unfortunately, gum disease and tooth decay lead to tooth loss and even systemic health issues. So when Dr. Pak spots an oral health problem, he offers superior restorative services, including:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Root canal therapy
- Crowns and bridges
- Dental implants
- Invisalign aligners
When a tooth cannot be saved, count on this dental team to provide comfortable extractions. Dr. Pak also extracts adolescent wisdom teeth when health and comfort require it.
Look your best
Some cosmetic dental issues run in families. Others are acquired through what happens over time or through oral injury. When your family comes to Kirkland Smiles Dental Care, expect that aesthetic needs will be compassionately and realistically addressed.
Desiring a change in tooth color? Older teens through senior adults may be candidates for professionally-supervised teeth whitening. Are gaps, chips and other flaws marring your smile? Ask Dr. Pak about composite resin bonding and porcelain veneers. Your care plan will fit your unique smile.
