Family Dentistry Procedures
Our dental practice offers a host of family dentistry treatments and procedures. Depending on your specific needs, we will make appropriate recommendations.
During your visit, the dentist will perform a routine exam to check for decay or other issues. If a problem is found, it will be addressed and the teeth will be cleaned and treated with fluoride to prevent future damage from occurring. A filling or crown may be recommended to replace any damaged areas and restore the appearance of your smile.
While most cavities can be effectively treated with a tooth-colored filling, more complex decay may require a crown. If the tooth structure has deteriorated significantly, an inlay or onlay may also be used. The dentist may also recommend bite guards and night guards to protect your teeth from further damage when grinding occurs at night.
By offering several treatments to restore teeth to proper health, we help patients of all ages have healthy smiles. If you have children, it is essential to schedule routine visits for them to maintain healthy teeth and gums as they grow.
Why Choose Family Dentistry?
Multiple appointments can be difficult to schedule and coordinate when you have a busy work schedule, school activities, and other obligations. Patients who see the same family dentist can bring the whole family in at one time and be seen one after the other, saving valuable time that families can spend together.
Some patients worry that seeking dental treatment for one family member may negate their insurance benefits if another family member has already seen the dentist. However, most dental insurance plans will cover the costs for family members at the same practice, even if there’s a different doctor for each appointment. This can lower the overall costs of the treatment and make a trip to the dentist even more affordable.
If patients see the same dentist every time they have an appointment, they can count on timely service. While there may be times when a dentist is delayed due to an emergency or another issue, patients can trust that they’ll have their routine visits scheduled quickly. Hence, they get in and out as rapidly and efficiently as possible.
