Family Dentistry

As your general dentist in Middletown, Dr. Peter Karian offers a comprehensive range of dental services needed to meet the needs of seniors, adults, and children. We know that families have chaotic schedules and busy lives, and that’s why we strive to make Summit Dental a place where the entire family can have the dental care they need to maintain a beautiful and problem-free smile.

Small Smiles Are Welcome at Summit Dental

Dr. Karian enjoys seeing children and recommends that parents start bringing their children to our dental office around the age of one-year-old. Starting dental care early allows your Middletown dentist to begin forming a relationship with your son or daughter and monitoring their oral development. This helps your little one to feel comfortable about visiting their dentist in the future and keeps you informed of any concerns as early as possible.

As your child grows, Dr. Karian may recommend some additional services to protect their dental health. Fluoride treatments help to fortify developing teeth and protect against tooth decay, while dental sealants coat and protect the chewing surfaces of your son or daughter’s back teeth. Filling in the pits and grooves of molars with a protective sealant helps keep harmful acids and bacteria from causing cavities.

A Focus on Prevention

At Summit Dental, preventive cleanings and checkups are the foundation of what we do for several reasons.

First, dentistry is all about prevention because if your tooth hurts, it’s likely that there is already damage. Routine examinations allow Dr. Karian to detect many dental concerns before they become more significant problems. Issues like gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities we can treat more effectively in their earliest stages.

Next, we consider ourselves an integral part of your health care team. Bi-annual visits with your dentist in Middletown help us protect you from gum disease, which scientists have closely linked with other chronic health concerns like:

  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Dementia
  • Complications during pregnancy

Consistent preventive appointments with Dr. Karian help protect not only your healthy smile but also your overall well-being.

Enjoy Your Best Smile

Are you living with chipped teeth? Maybe you have crooked teeth that overlap and disrupt your smile? Or perhaps it’s yellow or discolored teeth that embarrass you?

Whatever is keeping you from smiling your best smile can be eliminated with restorative or cosmetic dental services at Summit Dental, such as:

  • Tooth crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Invisalign
  • Tooth implants
  • Full or partial dentures
  • Teeth whitening
  • Dental bonding or veneers

Restorative and cosmetic dentistry often overlap since repairing a tooth also enhances your smile.
