The Advantages of Seeing a Family Dentist

If you have children, there are several advantages to seeing a family dentist rather than a general dentist. Family dentistry is similar to general dentistry; both types of practices offer oral hygiene care and restorative treatments like dental fillings. Not all general dentists, however, are willing to see children. A general dentist may not offer preventative treatments that are specifically designed for children, such as dental sealants and fluoride treatments. In addition, they may not be prepared to keep children comfortable and content during their dental appointments.

A family dentist has experience treating patients of all ages. Our practice starts seeing children at age three. We foster a gentle approach that helps children develop positive associations with going to the dentist. We want them to build good oral hygiene habits for life.

For these same reasons, we provide a positive and relaxed experience for patients of all ages, and place great importance on patient comfort. To make dental visits more pleasant for patients, our treatment rooms have movies for all ages to enjoy. We also understand that some patients may experience anxiety at the dentist's office, or have extreme sensitivity to dental treatments. That is why we are happy to offer nitrous oxide, which can help patients feel calm and relaxed throughout treatment. This also makes it easier for us to provide the treatment patients need. Please feel free to let us know if you have any issues with anxiety or sensitivity, and we will be glad to accommodate you.

Providing Comprehensive Care

Our family dental practice focuses on preventive and restorative care. We provide a comprehensive range of treatments, such as:

  • Regular cleanings: Routine cleanings are recommended for patients of all ages.
  • Fluoride treatments and sealants: These treatments are most commonly provided to children.
  • Deep cleaning: Deep cleanings are generally recommended to adults and seniors.
  • Tooth-colored fillings: Tooth-colored fillings restore teeth following cavity treatment.
  • Wisdom tooth extraction: Wisdom tooth extraction is commonly recommended to teenage patients.
  • Oral cancer screenings: Oral cancer screenings are especially important for seniors, who are at a greater risk of developing oral cancer. We provide screenings as part of all checkups.
  • Dental implants, dentures, crowns and bridges: These restorative treatments are typically provided for older adults and seniors, though they can benefit any patient who has lost adult teeth.

Along with these oral health-focused treatments, we also provide cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers to keep your smile looking its very best.
