What is family dentistry? Unlike other dental specializations like pediatric dentistry or cosmetic dentistry, family dentistry focuses on treating patients of all ages, from your toddler to your elderly grandfather. By seeing the whole family, you have peace of mind knowing that everyone’s dental records are all in the same place. Additionally, seeing a family dentist allows you to schedule you and your family’s appointments together, saving you an extra trip or days off work or school.
How often should I see my family dentist? Patients of all ages at average risk of developing tooth decay or gum disease should see their dentist at least twice a year for regular dental examinations and cleanings. These preventative appointments help your dentist find and treat dental issues like cavities early. Additionally, regular cleanings clear the teeth of plaque and bacteria which cause tooth decay, which can lead to gum disease.
Which services does my family dentist provide? Family dentists offer the same services as other types of dentists, though do not specialize in one specific branch of dentistry. Some of the services provided at Aventura Dental Excellence include:
- root canal therapy
- pediatric dental examinations
- teeth whitening
- dental crowns
