Family dentists provide comprehensive dental treatment to every member of a family, irrespective of their age. They will be trained and experienced to treat oral health problems of infants, children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. Some of the treatments they offer are restorations, oral cleaning, diagnosing and treating oral infections, cosmetic dental services, etc.
What are the advantages of choosing a family dentist?
- The benefit of familiarity plays a major role in family dentistry. When you visit the same dentist for routine consultations over a few years, the dentist would have a good idea about your oral habits. Moreover, you would feel more comfortable and respond better to the treatment procedures.
- The dentist would maintain a well-updated record of your oral health issues, which allows them to treat any unexpected dental conditions in a better and quick way.
- Visiting one dentist for all your oral health issues is a luxury. You can save a lot of time and money this way as the dentist’s office would serve as a one-stop destination for all your dental concerns.
Pediatric dental care
Making sure children practice good oral care is essential to ensure their overall health. Moreover, maintaining good oral health at a young age can go a long way in giving your children the perfect smile when they grow up. Some of the aspects that we look into in children are cavities, discoloration of teeth, plaque and tartar buildup, alignment of the teeth, diet, oral cleaning, etc. Dr. Browning has her gentle and friendly way around kids and youngsters, which allows her to understand the issue and suggest the right treatment to get rid of it.
Teeth lose their natural form due to various internal and external factors such as injuries, malocclusion, improper oral cleaning, bad oral habits, diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, etc. Due to these, the teeth may stain, chip, crack, wear, or go out of alignment. Dental restorations help to bring back such teeth to their original form by altering their shape, structure, color, and alignment. They are intended to improve the aesthetics, strength, and the functionality of the teeth.
Halting oral issues at their initial stages and not allowing them to turn severe is the main intent of preventive dentistry. We educate patients on how to take care of their oral health at home, which is one of the main aspects of preventive dentistry. Thorough brushing and flossing of the teeth gets rid of the majority of the microbes from the mouth, thereby reducing the chances of developing infections. Apart from that, we offer treatments such as dental sealants, fluoride treatment, oral prophylaxis, salivary diagnosis, oral cancer screening, periodontal screening, etc.
