What Is Family Dentistry?
Family dentistry is a discipline that dentists use to keep your teeth healthy and flawless, no matter your age. It also includes providing dental education, stressing the importance of oral hygiene to your kids in a calm, educational manner.
We recommend scheduling routine dental appointments twice a year or every six months to maintain your family’s oral health.
Our Family Dentistry Services
General Oral Hygiene Exams
Regular oral health exams and teeth cleanings are essential to your whole-body health. Your routine visits can help us catch and treat the signs of oral health problems before they create permanent damage, such as tooth loss or gum disease.
Our experienced dental team will use specialized tools to remove any plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque is a film of bacteria that builds into tartar, which causes gum disease and tooth loss or decay. Keep these at bay by visiting our office twice a year for routine cleanings and general oral hygiene exams.
Your children should visit our office for their first dental appointment when you notice their first tooth has erupted past their gum line or no later than their first birthday. When your kids are at our office, we’ll do everything to ensure their comfort. We don’t want them to feel scared or nervous because negative feelings can color how they see dental maintenance in the future.
During these appointments, we’ll gently clean your kids’ teeth and take a digital X-ray. This technology allows us to track their development as their jaws grow. Our dentists will also meticulously examine their whole mouth, looking for any signs of underlying oral health issues while stressing the importance of dental health throughout.
Dental Sealants and Fluoride Treatments
Our dentists frequently recommend fluoride treatments and dental sealants to strengthen and protect your family’s teeth from decay. We often use these treatments for children, but patients of all ages can benefit.
The fluoride treatments use a concentrated gel with a higher quantity of fluoride than toothpaste or treated water. This solution has been clinically shown to prevent tooth decay and is safe for anyone to use.
Dental sealants are tooth-colored resin solutions that we’ll brush on the surface of your enamel to smooth any jagged edges. The smooth surface helps keep bacteria from hiding in any hard-to-brush nooks and crannies.
Oral Cancer Screening
The key to successfully treating oral cancer is early detection. That’s why we’ll search for even the most minute signs of oral cancer during your regular semiannual exams. Our dentists can advise you about diagnosis and treatment if we find any symptoms at this time.
Regularly searching for the disease increases your chances of successful treatment. Talk to Dr. Grivas or any of our team members about concerns you have about oral cancer screenings.
