Family Dentistry Q&A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is a specialty that cares for patients of all ages. While pediatric dentists exclusively care for children and restorative dentists primarily treat adults, a family dentist has a broader range of expertise. The dentists at Summerhills Dental can care for you, your children, and any of your other family members to provide safe, convenient care.

What does family dentistry include?

 

Summerhills Dental offers a wide range of family dentistry services, such as:

Dental cleanings

 

A dental cleaning is a preventive treatment that removes plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) from your teeth and gums. Plaque clings to your teeth and causes tooth decay. By removing plaque before it erodes your tooth enamel, your dentist can help prevent cavities, periodontal disease, and even tooth fractures.

Periodontal treatment

 

Periodontal disease is a gum infection that occurs when plaque sticks to your gums. Over time, plaque can travel beneath your gum line and fester inside small pockets. To stop plaque from eating away at your tooth-supporting structures, your dentist removes it with periodontal treatment. 

 

Summerhills Dental offers laser dentistry to precisely remove pockets of plaque and kill bacteria.

Cavity treatment

 

If you have a cavity, your dentist removes the decayed portion and replaces it with a metal or composite resin filling. 

Fluoride treatment

 

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens and protects your bones, including your teeth. Your dentist may apply a fluoride treatment for you or your child at the end of a dental cleaning.

Restorative treatment

 

To treat fractured, weakened, or missing teeth, your dentist may recommend a restorative treatment. Crowns, bridges, and dental implants are among the most common restorative treatments at Summerhills Dental.

What are the benefits of choosing a family dentist?

 

Partnering with a family dentist has many benefits over visiting a general or pediatric dentist. The family dentists at Summerhills Dental:

 

  • Know your dental history
  • Form lasting relationships with you and your family
  • Provide preventive care for the whole family
  • Allow you and your children to receive care on the same day
  • Help minimize dental anxiety
