Family dentistry addresses oral health at every stage of life. Children have very different dental needs than adults, and qualified family dentists deliver comprehensive oral care from baby teeth to permanent teeth. Like general dentistry, family dentistry is concerned with oral hygiene and the health of your teeth.
Exam & Cleaning
American Dental Association (ADA) advises Dental check-ups and prophylaxis cleanings to be completed twice a year on a 6-month basis unless recommended by our Dr. We offer full services to our patients to better assist with your oral hygiene visit. As per ADA and standard of care, checkup x-rays are taken once a year.
Digital X-rays are also utilized in order to educate the patient. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 90-95% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays. Dental radiographs (x-rays) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. The need for dental x-rays depends on each patient’s individual dental health needs.
Oral Hygiene Aids
Regular dental check-ups are essential to maintain excellent oral hygiene and diagnose potential problems, but they are not a “fix-all” solution. Thorough oral homecare routines should be practiced on a daily basis to avoid future dental problems. There are numerous types of oral hygiene aids on the supermarket shelves, and it can be difficult to determine which will provide the best benefit to your teeth. We offer some of these products at a discounted rate in our office to better assist our patient’s needs.
