The Benefits of Family Dentistry
- Comprehensive Dental Services
Family dentists provide a wide range of dental services, including regular checkups, cleanings, X-rays, fillings, extractions, orthodontic evaluations, and more. This comprehensive approach ensures that every family member receives the necessary care for their dental needs.
- Dental Education and Prevention
Family dentists focus on patient education and preventive care. They teach proper oral hygiene techniques, discuss healthy dietary habits, and emphasize the importance of regular dental checkups. This proactive approach helps prevent dental problems before they escalate, promoting optimal oral health for the whole family.
- Early Detection and Intervention
Regular dental checkups allow family dentists to identify dental problems early. Early detection enables timely intervention, preventing complications and the need for more extensive and costly treatments in the future.
Family Dentistry Services
- Regular Dental Checkups
Regular dental checkups are the cornerstone of family dentistry services. These routine visits, typically recommended every six months, allow family dentists to monitor oral health, identify potential dental issues, and provide early intervention when necessary. Dental checkups involve thorough examinations, professional cleanings, X-rays, and oral health education, empowering patients to take charge of their oral well-being.
- Tooth Extractions
Sometimes a tooth is too damaged to save, or it is causing other teeth to become infected or damaged. In these cases, we recommend removing the tooth entirely. We will numb the area and use special tools to remove the tooth as gently as possible. After removing the tooth, we will give aftercare instructions to help you heal properly.
- Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a procedure that removes the pulp of the tooth, which is the soft inner tissue that contains nerves and blood vessels. This treatment is necessary when the pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to decay or damage. During a root canal, we will remove the pulp and clean the inside of the tooth before sealing it back up. This procedure can save your tooth from needing to be extracted.
