You have one doctor for your children and another one for you. Then, Mom and Dad yet another physician, and a podiatrist. Must you run family dentistall over town for your dental care, too? You don't have to if Dr. Dennis Lockney and Dr. Tyler Lockney are your family dentists in Concord, NC. Part of the same family themselves, these caring professionals provide state-of-the-art oral health treatments for patients of all ages. In other words, your whole family can see our dentists for preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry.

Prevent problems

Good oral health starts at home with regular brushing and flossing and a nutritious diet. Plus, your family dentist extends preventive care with six-month cleanings, digital X-rays, and exams beginning when children receive their primary teeth.

Additionally, our dentists check patients from the teen years on up for oral cancer. Bite checks, assessment of restorations, and protective plastic sealants and fluoride care round out routine preventive dentistry.

Restoring problems

Thankfully, both dental decay and tooth loss have declined in patients of all ages since the 1960s, says the American Dental Association. Vigilant dental care from family dentists in Concord and across the country are in large part responsible for that encouraging report.

As such, Dr. Dennis Lockney and Dr. Tyler Lockney and their team deliver premiere restorative care, including:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental crowns and bridgework
  • Root canal therapy
  • Scaling and root planing (gum disease therapy)
  • Dentures
  • Dental implants
  • Emergency visits as needed
  • Dental extractions, including wisdom teeth in adolescents

Children, adolescents, and adults, too, may be evaluated for orthodontic correction so smiles are straight, easy to clean, healthy, and attractive.

Cosmetic goals

Few people have perfect smiles, especially as years go on. Your family dentists understand that you want to look your best. So they provide many cosmetic dental treatments, the most popular of which is professional teeth whitening.

Additionally, the doctors offer composite resin bonding and porcelain veneers to repair obvious defects in tooth shape.
