When it comes to the health of your family nothing is more important, and a healthy smile is something that should be valued from the very beginning. While a full, beautiful smile might just seem like an aesthetic benefit having healthy teeth and gums provides the ability to speak to those around you and consume the nutrients you need for your body to stay healthy. So, this is why it’s so important that you and your family visit a family dentist regularly for the proper care your oral health needs.
Why choose a family dentist over a general dentist? A family dentist specializes in the care, treatment and maintenance of oral health for patients of all ages, from young children to the elderly. Because a family dentist has the training needed to make sure that all smiles remain healthy, whether it’s checking that your child’s smile has reached another developmental milestone or determining the best option for replacing an adult’s missing teeth, you can trust that all members of your family will get the customized care they deserve when they see their family dentist.
Family dentists just like general dentists are focused on preventive care. This means that when you come into our office twice a year for routine checkups that we will provide thorough exams and cleanings to make sure that there is no plaque or tartar buildup and that this buildup is removed before it causes issues like cavities or gum disease. In essence, our main goal is to prevent diseases and other issues that could affect your smile. Of course, we will also treat a host of dental problems, but family dentistry believes that the first level of defense against any oral health issues is prevention, and most dental issues like cavities and gum disease are completely preventable with the proper care.
Of course, family dentistry also provides additional services including cosmetic options like teeth whitening and dental veneers, as well as orthodontic treatments for both children and adults looking to correct crooked teeth and other malocclusions. We know how to provide individualized care to all members of your family to ensure that you have your smile for years to come.
