General and Preventive Dentistry in Fresno, CA

At Callister Dental it is the goal of our dentists, Dr. Braden Callister and Dr. Don Christensen, to provide individualized treatment plans for yourself and your family members that will eliminate disease, improve function, and contribute to lifelong oral health.

General and Preventive Dentistry for All Ages

Most of our patients have been coming to our practice since they were kids, and now we are seeing their kids and grandkids!  We love inviting families of all ages (including children) into our dental practice. We can treat most children for routine care and offer a referral to a caring pediatric dentist to provide other options for anxious children. Our team strives to provide the highest quality of care in an atmosphere where patients feel welcome and comfortable.

Our compassionate and patient staff is excellent at making children feel at ease in our dental office. We begin seeing children as soon as their first tooth erupts. We like to start early so that children can get used to being in a dental office setting as this helps ease anxiety about receiving dental care as they get older. Seeing children early helps instill positive habits for their dental health so that they have fewer dental problems later on. After their exam, children get to choose a prize from our treasure box!

Our General and Preventive Services

At Callister Dental, we offer comprehensive services. We pride ourselves in focusing on conservative and preventative dentistry that can help reduce costly services later in life. Preventative services include thorough exams, digital x-rays, sealants, and conservative tooth-colored fillings. 

We also offer other services that focus on improving aesthetics, improving chewing function, and eliminating disease. These services include crowns, bridges, partials, dentures, root canals, and implants. We even offer nightguards and athletic mouthguards for patients who grind their teeth while sleeping or for those who play sports.

Finally, our Fresno, CA dentists have found that preventive dentistry is conservative dentistry. Visiting our dental office twice per year for exams and cleanings means that our dentists can spot small issues before they become costly problems. Our dentists and hygienists can help prevent cavities and gum disease through routine cleanings and specific treatments geared toward keeping your teeth healthy and cavity-free.

Restorations for a Healthier Smile

Restorations are another important part of general and preventive dentistry, and we offer everything from crowns and bridges to quality dental implants in Fresno, CA.

Many problems arise when you have missing teeth:

  • Surrounding teeth shift
  • Gums and bone around missing teeth will shrink
  • More force on remaining teeth may cause them to wear down faster and lead these teeth to fail

Restorations not only complete your smile, but they give you back an even and healthy bite that will help prevent future oral health problems.

Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth

For older teens and adults, we offer two options in Fresno, CA for clear braces: Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Clear aligners are not bulky and much easier to clean than traditional braces. Clear braces can often straighten teeth quicker than traditional braces. 

Straighter teeth are easier to care for and clean. In general, people with straighter teeth tend to have fewer cavities, less recession and wear of teeth along the gumline, less gum disease, less sensitivity, and have a more even bite that can help reduce the risk of cracked or broken teeth. 

Before major cosmetic dental work, it may be advised or recommended to straighten your teeth with clear braces so that teeth are positioned well. This helps us to be more conservative and leave more natural healthy tooth structure when preparing the teeth for cosmetic restorations such as veneers or crowns.
