A person’s oral health, no matter their age, can have an impact on their overall health, including is the risk of developing certain diseases such as cardiovascular disease or diabetes. Regular dental appointments can help dentists identify - and in some cases even prevent - dental problems while they are still in their most treatable stages. When you begin your search for a family dentist, you should look for one who provides a range of different procedures and technology that caters to each individual member of your family.

Routine Care for the Whole Family

It is extremely important that everyone in your family undergoes regular, routine dental care appointments. During these appointments, your dentist can identify any areas of concerns or any other potential problems that may be present. Seeking regular dental care is essential to maintaining superior health of the gums, teeth, and mouth at every age. Family dentistry services include the following:

  • Sealants:  One of the best ways to fight against tooth decay is by using a sealant. This is done by applying a type of plastic resin to the chewing surface of the permanent teeth, which will then bond into the grooves and depressions of the molars and premolars. The sealant provides a barrier that will protect the tooth enamel from acids, plaque, and bacteria.
  • Dental Crowns: Dental crowns can serve many different purposes, including improving the appearance of teeth or strengthening damaged teeth. If you or a family member has discolored, misshaped, or weak teeth, a dental crown is a viable solution. Dental crowns can be used for patients of any age.
  • Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures: Your dentist may also provide a number of cosmetic procedures. This includes dental bonding, whitening, and veneers. Each cosmetic procedure that is completed is tailored to the patient’s specific oral health or cosmetic needs.

One of the appealing factors about family dentists is that they provide comprehensive general, restorative, and cosmetic treatments. This means that each member of the family does not have to find a different dentist to address their specific oral health needs. At Contemporary Dental Arts, P.C., the staff understands the needs of young patients with their baby teeth, as well as older patients that need to have dental work to restore their smile.
