Why Choose a Family Dentist

It's convenient and more affordable to visit a practice that puts your loved ones' oral health interests first. Dr. Alexandra Jaquery provides versatile services and maintains an accurate dental history of every family member. This convenience allows her to monitor their response to previous treatment and take timely preventive measures.
By visiting our practice, your children can avoid dental anxiety at a young age. They'll be better equipped to maintain oral hygiene standards into adulthood and pass the tradition to their kids. The long-lasting relationships we build with your family improves trust, honesty, and communication. These qualities mean our team can make accurate diagnoses and offer the best possible treatment.
Expert Children's Dentistry
Our Watsonville family dentist understands the importance of setting the right example for your kids on their first dental appointment. Dr. Jaquery’s friendly and approachable nature helps convince them to come for routine checks and follow oral hygiene guidelines. While we monitor their growing smiles, we also educate them on observing a healthy diet. Other services include:
- Preventive Care: Other than routine cleanings, we provide fluoride treatments, dental sealants, space maintainers, and mouthguards. These solutions keep their teeth healthy and strong and prevent dental complications.
- Pulpotomies: A pulpotomy is similar to root canal therapy but for children. It saves decaying or infected teeth by removing the pulp. This procedure eliminates inflammation, infection, and further decay.
Caring for Your Teen's Smile
Teens undergo many changes as they experience growth spurts, take up new hobbies, change their diet, and become more aware of their appearance. We help them navigate this phase by educating them on the importance of maintaining dental hygiene. Other than professional cleanings twice a year, we offer appliances such as braces to keep their teeth healthy and aligned.
If they're involved in sports and other physical activities, we'll recommend mouthguards and associated safety appliances. Other concerns include proper flossing and nutritional tips. We also educate them on the implications of oral piercings, eating disorders, and new lifestyle habits.
Family Dentistry Services for Adult & Senior Smiles
Your dental needs evolve as you age, especially with associated conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and nutritional deficiencies. Our adult and senior patients benefit from the following services:
Cleanings & Exams: We use x-ray scans, occlusal exams, salivary testing, periodontal charting, and TMJ exams. With our expert cleanings, our family dentist ensures you receive the best care.
Periodontal Care: The risk of gum disease rises as you grow older. Scaling and root planing procedures remove harmful bacteria and tartar from your teeth and under your gums. We also provide antibiotics to control infections. We recommend surgical procedures to treat advanced periodontitis.
Root Canal Therapy: This procedure saves your tooth by removing the infected pulp from its root before cleaning, shaping, filling, and sealing it.
Dental Veneers: Veneers are wafer-thin shells that cover discolored, worn, chipped, broken, and misaligned teeth. Each one is customized to match your unique smile.
Teeth Whitening: Our team offers in-office and take-home teeth whitening solutions. Our LED light-powered and DIY-friendly Zoom packages contain hydrogen peroxide gel formulations to break down stubborn tooth stains.
Restorations: Common dental restorations include fillings, crowns, dentures, and bridges. As an adult or senior, you'll need them to treat cavities, tooth loss, and general wear.
Dental Implants: These dental appliances replace your missing teeth with fully functioning and natural-looking alternatives. Titanium metal posts act as strong, artificial roots for your new teeth.
Extractions: We recommend extractions as a last resort. They're suitable if your teeth are decayed or damaged beyond repair. We also perform wisdom tooth extractions to relieve pain and prevent complications.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation: Full mouth rehabilitation requires a combination of treatment options for successful restoration. We implement the treatment plan definitive phases to ensure optimal results.
