Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry addresses dental care during every stage of your life. From regular teeth cleanings to wisdom teeth removal, your dentist advises you in oral hygiene and the overall health of your teeth, whether you’re a patient who has baby teeth or dentures.

What are my family dentistry treatment options?

Family dentistry involves the same services as general dentists. However, family dentists specialize in dental procedures for all ages. Services available include:

  • Regular exams and teeth cleanings
  • Digital X-rays and radiography
  • White cavity fillings
  • Veneers
  • Dentures
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Tooth extractions
  • Dental implants
  • Teeth whitening
  • Emergency dentistry

Family dentists focus on educating patients of all ages on teeth-cleaning practices and good oral hygiene habits. From proper brushing techniques for a toddler to cleaning dentures for an elderly patient, your dentist ensures everyone in the family maintains good oral care outside the office.

What are the benefits of family dentistry?

Family dentistry can care for all of your family’s dental needs in one convenient location, rather than visiting multiple dentists. Your dental provider offers a variety of services, all under one roof.
