Dr. Douglas R. Prince
Dr. Prince is amazing! He and his staff are friendly, efficient, patient and very knowledgeable. They have 4 locations and very flexible hours so they can always work around my schedule.I had braces for 3 years as a teenager and since my jaw wasn't done growing, by the time I was in my early twenties I was suffering from jaw pain, receding gums and extreme tooth sensitivity. My dentist told me my teeth were hitting each other incorrectly and basically destroying themselves. She said braces were the only thing that would work, Invisalign would not be able to fix my mouth and if I did nothing, I had a long life of crowns and other major dental work ahead of me. I went to two Orthodontists before finding Dr. Prince. I was told that not only would I need braces for at least 2 years, I would also need to have a tooth pulled to make room for my teeth to move or jaw surgery. Both ortho's said this could not be fixed with Invisalign since these trays only move your teeth.I then found Dr. Prince who is an Elite Preferred Provider of Invisalign (basically the best of the best and a very difficult title to obtain). I am only 4 months into my Invisalign treatment and my jaw pain is already gone. Dr. Prince has figured out how to make Invisalign work like braces to move my jaw but without the wires or pain. I go in every 6 weeks for about a 20 minute check up and sometimes a quick procedure to file a little off my teeth to create more room.I am very pleased with my trays, Dr. Prince and his staff. I can't wait for the final result and am so grateful to have found a doctor who has mastered Invisalign and is fixing my smile without braces.

Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
