Family dentistry ensures that patients of all ages get the dental care that they need and desire. Parents often want to know when their child should start receiving dental care. The American Dental Association recommends that parents have their child visit the dentist as soon as they receive their first tooth, which will typically occur by the child’s first birthday. When the tooth erupts, it is a good idea for parents to visit the dentist and receive education and tips on how to maintain healthy teeth and gums for their little ones!
Starting children early with a focus on dental care and hygiene will increase the likelihood of them taking great care of their smile as adults. Brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental visits are the key to keeping teeth and gums healthy. Children should be introduced to the dental practice environment at a young age so they can familiarize themselves with the office, the staff, and the dentist. This can reduce any anxieties and fears that the child may have about visiting an unfamiliar location for dental treatments.
There are many benefits to having a family dentist. Washington Township residents can visit Rochester Hills to see how easy it can be to schedule family appointments. Our practice can book back-to-back appointments for family members to make an easy, one-stop visit for everyone in the household. We understand that families have busy, active lives and will do our best to ensure that everyone is seen and examined when necessary.
Family dentists have the benefit of helping many generations of patients, which makes them more familiar with dental concerns or problems that may occur in younger patients over time. Knowing the dental and medical history of family members makes it easier to watch for and properly diagnose any issues that might arise due to heredity.
