Family dentistry is a dental practice that focuses on caring for your entire household, regardless of age. Family dentists provide various services, including dental exams, cleanings, and fluoride treatments. At the Center for Advanced Dentistry, families who visit us for routine cleanings and other preventative services can have a dentist, hygienist, and dental assistant all get to know their oral health. This provides better care because our team understands your dental history, your dental goals, and your dental needs.
Why Choose Family Dentistry?
A family dentist offers all the services you need to keep your family’s smiles healthy and bright. With family dentistry, your entire family can receive preventative care, such as cleanings and exams, as well as restorative and cosmetic procedures.
What Happens During Your Appointment?
At your consultation, your dentist will review your medical and dental history with you, conduct an oral cancer screening, and take X-rays of your teeth, mouth, and jaw. The dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and bite; and check for signs of oral cancer and periodontal disease.
Your dentist will talk to you about your oral health, explain what’s been found, and recommend treatment options.
The Benefits of Family Dentistry
Positive Dental Experiences
Positive dental experiences can lead to better dental visits in the future. Patients of all ages deserve to have positive dental experiences. At our practice, we create positive dental experiences for our patients from the moment they enter our practice.
Children & Adults
Young children like to imitate their parents. They will likely want to explore their smiles and get familiar with how their teeth look and feel. We can give them a gentle dental cleaning and show them how to brush and floss.
For older children, we can provide orthodontic services. Braces are the most common option. They can improve the function and appearance of their teeth.
Your family’s preventive dental care needs are unique to you. That’s because each family member has his or her strengths and weaknesses. To make sure that your family’s smiles stay healthy, visit our family dentist. Then, schedule regular checkups and cleanings.
Several dental issues require restorative treatments. In some cases, cavities can be effectively treated with a filling. A dental crown is often recommended for more protection if a cavity becomes too large for a filling. Similarly, dental implants can help patients replace missing teeth for improved function and aesthetics.
