Family dentistry helps people care for their teeth during all of life’s stages. Beginning with that first baby tooth, a family dentist understands what teeth need to stay healthy. Whether it is preventative care or more advanced dental procedures, a family dentist can be a constant in your family’s oral health. That consistency builds trust, which can lessen the fears some people experience when visiting the dentist. This is especially true for young children, which is why Lovett Dental Jersey Village offers family dentistry.
Family dental services include pediatric care. Children should see a dentist beginning at age one and then every six months. These visits ensure that a child’s teeth are properly cared for and that any concerns can be addressed. An experienced family dental practice pays special attention to developing a child’s mouth, teeth, and jaws, which can impact long-term oral health. Family dentistry staff are skilled at making children comfortable during procedures, which reduces the chances of growing up with a fear of dentists.
Family dentistry services focus on preventative care. That’s why exams for all family members should be scheduled every six months. Some of the most common services include:
- Regular cleanings: The six-month cleanings can catch tooth decay or gingivitis at the onset. A hygienist can also show patients how to brush and floss correctly.
- Regular exams: As part of regular cleanings, dentists conduct oral exams, looking for possible tooth decay and structural damage such as chipped or cracked teeth. Dentists look for the beginning of gum disease as part of regular exams so treatment can begin before the disease progresses.
When needed, x-rays are taken to exam the roots and jaw structure of the mouth.
Dental needs change with age. Wear and tear on teeth may require crowns or tooth replacements. Some patients may need nightguards to protect teeth against grinding. Whatever the need, Lovett Dental Jersey Village can help. We offer family dentistry services that include:
