Can you have one dentist serve your entire family? Yes, you can if that dentist is Dr. Rosanne Palermo. This experienced family dentist in family dentistErie, PA delights in treating patients of all ages, and she and her dedicated team strive for long-term relationships. Because Dr. Palermo knows families well, she can tailor their preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental services to their individual needs. Read more about how you and your loved ones can enjoy friendly and accurate oral health care.

No matter what the age

As a family dentist in Erie, Dr. Palermo examines, diagnoses, and treats baby teeth and permanent adult teeth, too. She understands how young teeth and jaw develop and can head off problems before they become complicated.

Key to caring for children is the age one visit. Beginning at the first birthday, Dr. Palermo asks parents to bring their little one in for a fun and comfortable exam which counts teeth and checks on how that little jaw is growing. This early visit accustoms children to the sights and sounds of a dental office and is a great opportunity to begin teaching home oral hygiene.

As a child grows, your family dentist evaluates him or her for orthodontic issues--proper bite, alignment, missing teeth, and more. Also, she offers space maintainers to guide permanent teeth into proper positions and mouth guards to protect the young athlete. For older teens and adults, Dr. Palermo delivers attractive and fully functional smiles discreetly using Invisalign clear aligners.

Prevention is key

Your family dentist provides all her patients with comprehensive oral examinations and cleanings. Combined with a healthy diet and consistent brushing and flossing at home, in-office care forms a solid foundation for long-lasting smiles.

Exams include:

  • A check for decay and gum disease
  • Assessment of existing restorations such as crowns
  • A comfortable and quick oral cancer screening
  • A bite check
  • Periodic digital X-rays as needed

The hygienic cleaning removes plaque and tartar which at-home flossing and brushing miss, and your hygienist polishes your teeth to a brilliant shine.

Restoration and cosmetics

Patients of all ages deserve painless restoration of decay and gum problems, so Dr. Palermo offers:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Gum disease therapy
  • Bridgework
  • Dental implants
  • Emergency dental care
  • Sedation dentistry

As a family dentist, Dr. Palermo delivers prompt treatment of dental emergencies, and she ensures all her patients, no matter the age, have a stress-free and painless experience.

As part of a comprehensive treatment plan for each patient, your family dentist in Erie suggests cosmetic services to enhance smiles which have stains, chips, gaps, and other flaws. Teeth whitening and dental bonding are two of Dr. Palermo's most popular and economical treatments which erase defects quickly and comfortably.
