Better Oral and Overall Health

At Lawson Family Dentistry, we emphasis specialty dental care services that take your oral and overall health into consideration. Our team screens and identifies possible problems or deficiencies in your overall health that may be leading to issues with your wellbeing, or to the destruction of your dentition. We help patients of all ages, monitoring your children’s craniofacial and airway development to ensure they reach their full growth and development potential, while also addressing common children issues, such as sleep disordered breathing or misalignment.

The Benefits of Integrated Care

In addition to dental health specialists, we also coordinate with family physicians, ENTs, gastroenterologists, pulmonologists, sleep and endocrine doctors, and others to help decrease inflammation in the mouth and improve airway function (leading to better functioning organs, a reduced risk of sleep apnea and sleep disorder breathing, and a decrease in heartburn and reflux).

We work to aid in controlling blood sugars, quitting tobacco use, and helping patients age more gracefully (the skin is the largest organ in the body, and if it’s not getting enough oxygen, we all prematurely age)! We also want to protect your teeth with metal-free conservative crowns and fillings, which not only look natural, but also safeguard your smile against cavities and infections. Our team is ready to address oral facial pain and TMJ dysfunction to help you enjoy a comfortable and youthful smile as well (In 2018 we will also begin offering Botox to alleviate oral facial pain and offer cosmetic benefits). Working with your medical and specialty providers, we will create a total health care plan tailored for you and your family.

With our approach to specialty dentistry and integrative dental medicine, we improve oral and overall health, helping you enjoy a higher quality of life through more than just your smile. To learn more, schedule a consulation with us by calling Lawson Family Dentistry in Urbandale, IA, today at 515-278-4366.
