Dental specialists exist for different realms of dentistry, but why is it so important to seek out a specialist? For instance, family dentistry is a large category that falls under general dentistry. Family dentists offer the right care for all ages, from infant to adults. The other importance to a family dental practice, is they practice and teach oral hygiene to all ages, to ensure everyone is understanding proper teeth and gum care.
Family dentists provide many procedures and treatments you could want or need. If you were wondering what some of the offerings are typically provided, here is a quick rundown:
- Pediatric services
- Teen services
- Preventative care
- IV sedation
- Dental implants
- Emergency dentistry
This list is bare bones of what a family dentist can provide, so don’t be afraid to ask if they offer something specific you need done. The variety of techniques offered by a general or family dentist is very broad, so it is more than likely your dentist offers the procedure you’re looking for.
The best way to stay on top of your oral hygiene and your family’s oral health is by keeping up with regular maintenance of oral care. Brushing your teeth and flossing daily is a very important step to keeping on top of your oral hygiene. Daily routines paired with an annual or bi-annual schedule of appointments will ensure you have great oral hygiene. Another great practice family dentistry handle is teaching proper oral hygiene to children and anyone who needs a refresher.
