Family Dentistry Treatments
You can expect various preventive and restorative dental treatments during your family dentistry appointment. Most patients will receive cleanings, exams, and fluoride treatments for healthy teeth and to maintain oral health. Other patients will also benefit from bite-guard therapy to prevent teeth from grinding during the night. This can help protect your overall dental health by decreasing the risk of worn or cracked teeth and jaw pain. Other standard procedures include dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and root canals. Family dentists can treat children and adults of all ages, making it convenient for the whole family to receive dental care from a familiar and trusted source.
Benefits of Family Dentistry Treatments
Bringing your family in to see our family dentists every six months for checkups and cleaning is recommended for most people to prevent cavities, gum disease, and other common issues. We may recommend more frequent visits if you have known risk factors or are experiencing specific symptoms. For example, if you are prone to decay, we may recommend biannual fluoride treatments and sealants for extra protection between appointments.
If you have children, you should bring them in to see us as soon as their first teeth appear. This will allow us to establish healthy oral hygiene habits to avoid issues like baby bottle tooth decay. At each appointment, we will monitor your child’s development and growth to ensure their teeth emerge properly and jaw development progresses as it should. We want to ensure your child has a healthy smile from the very beginning.
If you or any in your family experience any pain or discomfort with your teeth or gums, or if you have noticed discoloration, swelling, or other abnormalities in your mouth, you can bring in your entire family to visit our dentists for treatment as soon as possible. We will help you determine the cause of the problem and recommend the appropriate treatment. We may prescribe medicine to treat infections, relieve tooth pain, and help control gum tissue bleeding. We will also perform a thorough examination to determine the cause of your symptoms. If we detect an infection in the tooth pulp tissue, we may need to complete a root canal to remove the infected area and restore the natural tooth structure.
From the youngest family member to the most senior, every member of your family will be attended to by our dentist to ensure their dental health. Contact ProCare Dental care at 1377 E 3900 S #202, Salt Lake City 84124, or call (801) 278-2817 for the best dental care.
