Issaquah Family Dentist
Dentistry For The Whole Family!
Having a top-quality dentist that everyone in your family can turn to is important. You want a dentist that is going to take the time to get to know you, understand what you have already had done, and remain aware of what your mouth may be more susceptible to going forward. At Eastside Family Dentistry, the biggest privilege is seeing your family become a part of our own. We love being able to see entire families come in and grow with us.
What’s Involved in a Comprehensive Dental Exam?
A comprehensive dental exam is more than just a cleaning and the dentist looking at your teeth. An initial comprehensive dental exam includes the following:
- Reviewing and/or updating your medical/dental history, including an updated list of current medications.
- A thorough oral cancer screening, visually, digitally, and with the use of a VELscope.
- X-rays showing the current condition of your teeth, restorations, and supporting bone.
- A periodontal examination, in which we assess your gums and supporting periodontium.
- An occlusal exam, checking for any signs of malocclusion.
- A meticulous tooth-by-tooth examination, looking for signs of decay, failed restorations, cracks, and other discrepancies.
- Intra-oral camera with cavity detection. This allows us to catch problems in its early stage, preventing pain, irreversible damage, and maintaining your natural healthy tooth structure and surrounding periodontium.
All Ages Are Welcome at Eastside Family Dentistry
As your family dentist in Issaquah, we have patients whose ages range from infants to great grandparents. Your teeth can be strong and healthy at any age! Our hope is to start seeing patients as young as possible, and be the dentist they feel comfortable turning to their entire lives. The longer you see the same dentist, the more likely that dentist is to know your likes and dislikes, what makes you nervous in their chair, and what you need to have done. They also notice when something new pops up on your oral radar!
If you elect to visit different dentists for treatments, little or subtle changes may be categorized as ‘normal’, even if it isn’t exactly normal for you. That’s why we ask that you become part of our family now, and come and see us for many years to come.
Providing All of Your Family Dentistry Needs
Dr. Alexandra Cristescu is a highly trained dentist who thrives on being able to help her patients whether it’s through restorative dentistry or just a simple cleaning. During each examination, she will look through your mouth with a handheld oral cancer scanning tool, Velscope, as a preventive screening.
Dr. Cristescu will also assess the health and appearance of your teeth and gums. If she notices any type of a problem, she will discuss options with you so that you can decide what type of treatment is in your best interest. She will schedule a time to have it performed while you are still in the office.
Other Dental Services We Offer
On top of cleanings, exams, and fillings, we can also serve your other general dentistry needs. If you notice you are more susceptible to cavities, you will likely benefit from a fluoride treatment. If you grind your teeth or play contact sports, we can provide you with a customized night guard or sports guard to protect your teeth. Other services include:
- Esthetic veneers
- Root canals
- Periodontal Therapy
- Dental implants and implant supported prosthesis
- Full mouth reconstructions
We want to keep an eye on the health of your mouth and be sure to keep it healthy and functional. No matter what type of dental care you need, contact us. If we can’t do it in-house, we can connect you with a trusted specialist nearby.
