Norwalk Family Dentistry
The best dental care is proactive, so we recommend that you attend six-month continuing care and oral cancer screenings. These essential preventive visits will allow us to detect problems early, when conservative treatment may reestablish oral health and function. Our hygienists provide regular dental cleanings and deep cleanings, as well as one-on-one instruction regarding brushing, flossing, and homecare products. Our hygienists will help you maintain healthy gums and ward off gum disease. Though gum disease may not sound serious, is is closely linked to significant health problems, such as heart attack, stroke, and dementia. About 80% of the population faces some level of gum disease, and prompt, effective treatment is the best way to preserve good oral health.
As family dentists, Dr. Norman Sommers and Dr. Adam Sommers provide all facets of general dentistry. Parents appreciate our sensitivity to the unique needs of children. We partner with parents to help them set children on a path to lifelong oral health. Our doctors restore and replace teeth with modern techniques. The team always administers dental care with gentleness and empathy, so you can expect a rewarding experience.
In addition to preventive and restorative family dentistry, we offer contemporary cosmetic dental procedures. Studies show that an attractive smile makes a person appear more successful, intelligent, and friendly. For example, teeth whitening or porcelain veneers can transform a smile into a beautiful accessory you’ll wear with pride. If you’d like to correct imperfections in the color and/or shape of your teeth for a more beautiful smile, ask one of our cosmetic dentists for a smile makeover consultation at your next visit.
Your comfort is priority, so our team always extends a caring and gentle chairside manner. If you feel anxious or stressed about treatment, request an oral sedative or IV sedation to set your mind at ease. Because your safety is paramount, our doctors use a digital X-ray, which emits about 80% less radiation than traditional radiographs. The digital images immediately appear on a chairside monitor, and your dentist will refer to them when explaining your state of oral health. We want you to become an active participant in your dental care, so please, ask questions and tell us about your concerns.
