Family Dentistry - LaGrange KY and Oldham County
Your Family’s Smile Needs…in One Place!
At the Family Dentistry office of Dr. Janet Visanescu in LaGrange KY we are ready to help each member of your family maintain the good dental health they deserve. We treat patients of all ages from early childhood to mature adults and seniors while addressing the special needs of each age group. Having been busy parents ourselves, we strive to provide one child-friendly, local office, that is just one phone call away for all your family's dental care.
Dr. Janet Visanescu focuses on comprehensive dental screenings and preventive care for all her patients. Our practice believes that this helps us keep dental treatments as reasonably priced and minimal as possible, since treatment needs can be reduced altogether through comprehensive, preventive care. We take advantage of low-cost preventive treatments that preserve enamel, strengthen teeth, and identify needs before they become a serious problem.
Every new patient receives a comprehensive exam to assess his or her smile, bite, TMJ function, bone height, and risk for disease. At return visits, we will also provide periodic exams that note changes from your first exam. This helps Dr. Visanescu pinpoint problems as soon as they begin to develop. The earlier the needs are addressed, the simpler the course of treatment can be!
Dr. Visanescu loves to show patients what she sees when she examines your mouth. With our intra-oral cameras, she can! These small cameras can capture high quality images of the teeth or other areas of the mouth. The image is then placed on our in-room monitor to discuss findings with the patient. This empowers our patients to make educated choices regarding their oral health care.
Preventive care catches problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease, when they’re still small. Your personalized check-up interval, which is usually six months, depending on your dental health, helps your dentist to protect you from problems before they become more serious.
Gum disease is the biggest cause of tooth loss in adults. Our periodontal therapy program helps halt and reverse gum disease, allowing our patients to keep their teeth longer. If you suffer from gums that bleed easily or are swollen, bad breath, or heavy tartar buildup, then you may have gum disease. A customized plan includes a deep cleaning to remove plaque and tartar below the gum, with maintenance visits to help you overcome bone and tooth loss.
Emergency Dental Care
We’re always ready for your dental emergency, even if you aren’t. No matter what the cause or when it happens, we want you to know that you can contact us immediately – day or night. We pride ourselves on 24/7 access. We’ll do our best to accommodate your needs as soon as possible. If it’s pain or a broken tooth, we’ll be prepared to put your mind at ease and put a smile back on your face. How many dentists do you know who give out their personal phone number?
In our kid-friendly Family Dentistry office in LaGrange, KY, we make sure that children get the good start they need in their dental health.
We place a special emphasis on preventive education for young patients, and on establishing positive relationships. Our goal is to have your children look forward to coming to the dentist.
Dental sealants are a procedure that is highly effective in preventing decay on the biting surfaces of your chewing teeth. Dr. Visanescu applies a tooth-colored acrylic "coating" onto the surface of the tooth. This effectively "seals" the deep grooves, acting as a barrier and protecting enamel from plaque and acids.
Sealants protect the depressions and grooves of your teeth from food particles and plaque that brushing and flossing cannot reach. They hold up well under the force of normal chewing and can last several years before a reapplication is needed.
One of the best ways to care for your smile is to prevent damage from happening in the first place. If you or your child play sports, a sports guard not only prevents dental trauma, it can also reduce the chance of a concussion. We also offer bite splints and night guards for patients who have problems with clenching and grinding. This prevents pain associated with TMJ disorder as well as premature wear of the teeth.
