Compassionate, Skilled Family Dentistry for Years to Come
From our family dentistry practices in East Brainerd and Downtown Chattanooga, TN, Dr. Damien F. Armstrong can provide lifelong care for you and your loved ones. Dr. Armstrong and his team are dedicated to serving the community through exceptional, preventive care. We understand the special needs of patients in every age group, from children to seniors, and pledge to meet those needs for every member of your family.
Dr. Armstrong understands the unique challenges children present as dental patients. They often come to the office in a state of fear, because they have no idea what to expect. Dr. Armstrong and his team can put your child at ease and provide gentle care specific to their needs. We feel that the greatest benefit of visiting a family dentist centers around the fact that as your child gets older, they can continue with the same dentist that they know and trust. Children who visit a specialist pediatric dentist will eventually surpass the age limits of their doctor and have to learn to trust a new dentist.
Catering to Teens
As children grow into teenagers, their lives become very busy, and they may find themselves at a higher risk for dental problems. As adult teeth erupt, your teenager may suffer from overcrowding, which requires orthodontic treatment to preserve oral health. When your child reaches their late teens, wisdom teeth begin to emerge and usually require extraction. Dr. Armstrong can also prepare your teen for what lies ahead if they fail to take care of their teeth, instilling proper dental habits from an early age.
Taking Care of Adult Teeth
As you age, you will become more susceptible to certain dental health problems like gum disease and severe tooth decay. Regular check-ups and cleanings can prevent serious oral damage by removing the bacteria and plaque that naturally build on teeth. If not taken care of, these minor dental issues can develop into major medical problems. Gum disease alone has been linked to serious concerns such as heart attack, stroke, respiratory issues, and dementia. Routine care and exams by Dr. Armstrong are vital to maintaining your oral health.
Dr. Armstrong’s very pleasant bedside manner helps put patients of all ages at ease, and he looks forward to treating you and your entire family.
Supporting Senior Oral Health
Our senior patients face many unique dental challenges. They face a greater risk for a range of oral conditions, including dry mouth, root decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Dr. Armstrong is extensively trained and has experience treating these particular issues. He can help senior citizens keep their teeth healthy and provide effective treatment and solutions for missing and severely damaged teeth. We love to help our advanced age patients rediscover their beautiful smiles with the help of restorative procedures and prosthetic devices such as dentures.
