When it comes to ensuring the best possible treatment and care for your oral health, knowing which type of dentist best suits your need is key. At North Mesquite Dental Group, we run a family dentistry that can cater to all manner of needs. You’re welcome to come and visit us to learn more about our treatments, but first, you might want to know what a family dentistry is and does.

What is a family dentistry?

A family dentistry is much like a general dentistry. Family dentists train extensively, attending dental school to learn how to provide a wide range of treatments. These treatments can include routine check-ups, teeth cleaning, fillings, crowns, veneers, dentures, root canals, tooth extraction, and more. Their primary focus is ensuring the long-term care of your oral health to make sure that your teeth, gums, and mouth are as healthy as possible.

The primary difference between a family dentist and a general dentist is that the former trains to provide these services for patients of all ages. As such, children and older patients are just as welcome to the practice as anyone else. These services are catered to the needs of the individual. 

Furthermore, a family dentist also plays an important part in dental hygiene and oral health care education for all ages, whether it’s teaching a toddler how to brush or an older patient how to wear their dentures responsibly.

How can we benefit your family?

To put it simply, family dentistry can play a huge role in ensuring the good oral health of you and all your family members, no matter their age. Routine cleanings and check-ups can prevent all manner of issues, while also helping us more quickly spot any problems that need quick treatment. Some specific benefits include:

 

  • Preventing gum disease, tooth loss, infection, some oral cancers and more
  • Preserving the healthy look and function of your teeth for as long as possible
  • Teaching your children about the importance of good oral hygiene and how to ensure it
  • Simple and convenient access to appointments when you need them
  • Establishing a dental health and treatment history to help with any future necessary treatments
  • Get a better idea of what to look out for regarding your oral health and how to properly care for your mouth
