While some dental concerns can occur in people of whatever age group, some issues are particular to people of certain ages. Thankfully, your family dentist is there to help.
Family dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the general oral health of all people in the family — from babies to grandparents. At Edgewater Dental, our specialist dentists can address the oral and dental health conditions of your whole family.
What Makes a Family Dentist Special?
A family dentist is like a general dentist, a pediatric dentist, and a geriatric dentist combined. They took additional training to be able to maintain the oral health and deal with the dental issues of all members of the family, regardless of age. Because of this, your whole family can have all your dental needs met in one dental visit. Also, children’s oral health can be monitored as they grow, and all your dental records are all in one place.
What Services Can a Family Dentist Provide?
Our family dentist can provide a wide range of services. Some of them are:
Our family dentist can make a child comfortable while doing an oral exam. They also check for age-specific issues like primary teeth decay, wisdom teeth growth, tooth discoloration, etc. Our dentist can also perform oral cancer screening as part of the exams, especially for older people.
- Professional Teeth Cleanings
Regardless of age, a person’s teeth need to be professionally cleaned at least twice a year. This is to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar that could lead to tooth decay and cavities.
Children would benefit from dental sealants to prevent tooth decay and cavities. The dentist could also provide fluoride treatments to help strengthen children’s and adults’ teeth.
Teeth misalignment is an issue for anyone, especially teenagers and young professionals who might be especially self-conscious about their looks. Our family dentist could provide the orthodontic treatment needed while taking into account the personal sensibilities and needs of the patient.
Our family dentist can recommend and perform the appropriate restorative treatment for damaged or lost teeth. They do so while taking into account the age and lifestyle of the patient.
