Choosing an excellent dentist who fits your family’s needs is an important step in maintaining good overall health. A first-rate family dentist specializes in all dental services from regular preventative cleanings and fillings to more specialized procedures such as root canals and dental implants. A family dentist is not limited to one particular age group, like a pediatric dentist. Instead, he or she can care for a broad spectrum of ages. This means your children can stay with the same dentist from the time they are toddlers through adulthood.
Here are the top three benefits to selecting a family dentist:
There’s nothing more convenient than taking your entire family to the same dental office, especially when you have children or you care for an older adult. When your dentist treats every member of the family, he or she can get to know all of you and can better understand your long-term oral healthcare needs. In addition, it’s convenient to choose one dental office so you can coordinate regular dental cleaning appointments.
- Broad spectrum of care
A family dentist specializes in multiple services from regular dental cleanings, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, to root canals and dental implants. Your family dentist can also check regularly for oral cancers as well as disease such as gingivitis.
- Long-term care creates trust
A study performed by Harvard Medical School found that 13 to 24 percent of adults surveyed were afraid to go to the dentist. By introducing your child to a family dentist early on, you can find someone you and your child trust. When you make those early dental experiences positive, your child will be more likely to welcome regular appointments and maintain good oral care as an adult. A family dentist can also keep an eye on developing oral issues in both children and adults, such as severe bite malformations, cleft palates, gum disease or other complex issues.
