Family dentists commit their practice to help maintain the oral health and hygiene of patients of all ages. Many patients confuse the terms “family dentistry”and “general dentistry.”They are slightly different due to the fact that some dentists restrict their practice to serving specific age groups, just as a pediatrician limits their practice to the medical care of children.
Family dentistry is an important field of dentistry, and households that use family dentistry services often have a better understanding of how to achieve and maintain overall dental health and wellbeing by working together. Patients are educated on the importance of caring for the teeth, gums, and bones, and are knowledgeable about what it takes to maintain good oral health habits.
Family dentists strive to ensure that patients take good care of their teeth. This requires education on home dental care. Children and adults are encouraged to brush their teeth after every meal and floss at least once a day to remove food particles and plaque. Regular dental appointments-at least two a year-are also necessary to maintain a healthy smile.
Services provided at a family dental practice may include routine check-ups, fluoride treatments, sealants, cavity treatments, x-rays, and professional cleanings. Family dentists may also provide services such as root canal therapy, scaling and root planing, and other treatments that can benefit patients.
