Family dentistry provides valuable services to patients of all ages. A family dentist has expertise in providing dental care services to different people in their family and in managing their oral health. At Fallbrook Dental Care, we know that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to dental care. That’s why we offer comprehensive services to meet all of your family’s dental needs. We strive to make every trip to the dentist a positive experience, no matter the reason for your visit.
What Makes a Family Dentist Unique?
A family dentist has additional training and qualifications. A general dentist can perform some procedures on children, but a family dentist has additional training to work with children, including dealing with their behavior and helping them relax.
Why Do You Need a Family Dentist?
Dental checkups are essential for healthy teeth and gums. Seeing your family dentist twice a year allows him or her to monitor your dental health and catch any potential problems before they cause more serious problems. While you’re at the dentist’s office, your family dentist will also perform a professional dental cleaning.
Dental fillings improve the health and strength of your teeth. If cavities are present, a dental filling will help to repair your tooth. Cavities are holes in the teeth, which let bacteria in and affect the health of the tooth. If left untreated, cavities can cause cavities, gum disease, and eventually tooth loss.
Dental crowns, also known as caps, are tooth-shaped coverings that fit over damaged teeth. They cover the entire tooth from the gum lineup. Crowns restore chipped, cracked, or severely stained teeth.
Dental implants have quickly become one of the most popular tooth replacement methods. The reason dental implants are so popular is that they look and function just like your natural teeth. In addition, they don’t harm your surrounding healthy teeth as bridges or dentures can.
Many patients receive orthodontic treatments in childhood, but many individuals still undergo orthodontic treatments as adults. With modern orthodontic treatments, you can improve your smile at any age.
Regular visits can help your child maintain good oral health and prevent the development of more complex dental problems later on.
When dentists do oral surgery, it is to correct a problem in the mouth, such as tooth decay or gum disease. You may need oral surgery for any number of reasons. For example, if you have severe tooth decay, your dentist may recommend a root canal. A root canal involves removing infected pulp from your damaged tooth and replacing it with a dental crown.
Your family dentist can provide periodontal care. However, there are some cases in which you should visit a periodontist. If you have red, puffy, bleeding gums, you may have gingivitis. Gingivitis is a mild form of gum disease. With that said, you should visit a periodontist for deep cleaning if your gum disease is severe and more advanced.
