Crafting a Family-Oriented Dental Experience

Every patient that visits our practice has unique dental needs. You can trust that our team puts in the time and effort to tailor our range of treatments to your benefit. We understand that setting aside time to visit our office can be challenging and want to make the process as streamlined as possible.

Dr. Akers trained at the Pankey Institute to further her dental education and enhance her ability to provide each patient with a meaningful and individualized experience. By considering every patient's specific needs, age, and comfort level, she crafts a reassuring and welcoming environment for everyone.

At our dental office, you're able to conveniently schedule appointments for several family members over one day. Instead of visiting our dentist for a cleaning and another office to receive treatment for TMJ, our skilled team can provide both services. We always take care to discuss all the treatment options available to you so you feel fully equipped to make the best choices for your situation.

Gentle Dentistry for Children & Teens

Our goal is to make your kid's visit as interactive, enjoyable, and stress-free as possible. Dr. Akers and her team are trained to work with patients of all ages and comfort levels. By explaining procedures in simple, non-threatening language and answering any questions your child has during their visit, we keep their mind at ease and alleviate nervousness.

We keep a close eye on your child's oral development through their early years and are attentive to any signs they may require orthodontic treatment. Our office maintains a detailed dental chart for all patients so any changes are easily noticeable. We want to be sure that your child's smile is developing well and can refer you to a trusted specialist for an orthodontic evaluation if needed. During cleanings, we apply fluoride and sealants to protect your child's teeth and prevent cavities.

Continuing Care for Adults

Besides providing regular checkups to keep your teeth and gums healthy, our office offers several restorative and cosmetic treatments to craft a stunning smile. Our family dental services include:

Dental Crown: A dental crown can be used to subtly repair a tooth that has been cracked, chipped, or damaged in another way.

Dental Bridge: A custom-fitted dental bridge uses a mixture of dental crowns and prosthetic teeth to smoothly fill substantial gaps in your smile.

Root Canal Therapy: A prompt root canal treatment may save an infected or decayed tooth without resorting to an extraction. Our Shawnee family dentist removes the infection before sealing the tooth off to prevent future problems.

General Extractions: If you're suffering from a severely infected, decayed, or damaged tooth that cannot be preserved with root canal therapy, we may recommend extracting it. Our team performs simple extractions and can refer you to a trusted oral surgeon to remove impacted teeth.

Dental Treatments for Bruxism & TMJ: If you suffer from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) or bruxism, our dentist works with you to develop an effective treatment plan that alleviates your symptoms. We can provide you with a custom-fitted occlusal splint to stabilize your jaw, prevent grinding, and decrease muscle tension.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation: If you're unsatisfied with your smile's function or appearance, we offer full mouth rehabilitation treatments. We combine several of our cosmetic services in a unique treatment plan designed to craft your dream smile and enhance your oral health.

Protecting the Oral Health of Seniors

Despite what you may imagine, it's not inevitable that you lose teeth as you grow older. When you maintain excellent oral hygiene and regularly visit Dr. Akers, you benefit from healthy gums and teeth for as long as possible.

Many seniors in the United States are impacted by gum disease, which is a leading cause of tooth loss. Our Shawnee family dentist carefully checks for any signs of gum disease during exams and guides you to the appropriate treatment if needed. Our only goal is to restore your health as efficiently as possible, approaching your needs with compassion and diligence.
