Between work, house chores, errands, and your kid's activities, it can seem impossible at times to keep up with your family's oral health care too. But, as you already know, this isn't something you can simply ignore or postpone for too long.
Could there be a way to make dentist appointments easier for the entire family?
Yes! Here's how a family dentist can help!
A family dentist has the training and experience to treat patients of all ages, from infants to elders. This means that you don't have to look for a specialized dentist for each member of your family and schedule different appointments at different clinics.
With a family dentist, you can set an appointment for your entire family and have everyone's oral health checked at the same clinic.
Dental visits can become less stressful when the doctor knows your name, your dental history, and you can talk openly to them. This is especially important for children as they can be seen and treated by the same dentist from their infancy all the way into their adulthood years.
When your dentist knows and has access to the oral health of your entire family, it can become easier to anticipate and prevent dental issues before they even appear. For example, if both parents had crowding issues, the dentist will know to keep an eye on the development of your child's permanent teeth and act early if they notice any signs of crowding or misalignment.
One of the reasons family dentists can treat patients of all ages (besides their training and experience,) is that they offer a wide range of dental services. Whether you need basic preventive care, periodontal care, restorative services, orthodontic treatment, or cosmetic treatment, a family dentist can offer the exact treatment you or your family needs.
If your child knocks a tooth out or if you are dealing with an infection, it helps to know that you can always call your dentist and ask for advice. And because they already have your dental and medical history, they can provide quick and accurate care.
