A common dentist who treats and addresses the oral concerns of every member of a family is called a family dentist. We treat patients belonging to a wide range of ages – from toddlers to the elderly. Choosing a common family dentist has several benefits, both in terms of money and the service offered.
What are the advantages of family dentistry?
- Treating toddlers and young patients can be tricky for a dentist, especially if it is their first consultation. But, visiting the same dentist for a few consultations will make them feel more comfortable while being treated. The benefit of familiarity would make the treatment more pleasing and effective.
- Scheduling consultations for various members of the family is easier with a family dentist. You can schedule a single appointment for routine bi-annual consultations, making it more convenient for you.
- Choosing a family dentist would be a smart decision in monetary terms as well. Based on mutual understanding, the dentist may offer personalized discounts for the treatment.
Common treatments offered
Oral cleaning: Removing the plaque and tartar deposits from the teeth is crucial to prevent cavities and gum diseases. We do this through scaling and root planing.
Fillings: Fillings are widely used to restore teeth infected with decay. We use composite resinous or ceramic fillings to restore such teeth as they offer excellent sealing properties and can be customized according to the color and contour of the teeth.
Treating oral infections: Gum diseases are by far the most common oral infection. They are often caused due to the adhered plaque and tartar deposits. We offer periodontal treatment by removing the tartar and the decayed tissues and healthy graft tissues to the receded area.
Restorations: Ceramic restorations like crowns, veneers, bridges, etc., are necessary to restore the teeth to their ideal contour and functionality. They can be customized to make them look as lifelike as possible.
