What’s the Best Way to Take Care of My Family’s Teeth?
All members of your family should maintain regular appointments with your dentist for cleanings, exams, and X-rays. The dentists at Sunrise Dental recommend cleanings every six months. If anyone in your family has periodontal disease, they may need to see the dentist more often.
Everyone in your family should brush their teeth at least twice a day and floss daily. You must brush all reachable parts of your teeth for two minutes. Fluoride toothpaste or mouthwash helps maintain oral health, especially those whose drinking water doesn’t contain fluoride.
Children in your family can get fluoride treatments at Sunrise Dental to protect their developing teeth. The fluoride strengthens the enamel to help prevent cavities.
What Can A Family Dentist Help With?
Sunrise Dental offers general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry to cover all your dental needs from basic cleanings to oral surgery.
Most people see a family dentist for routine cleanings, exams, and preventive care. However, the dentists at Sunrise Dental can also help your family with:
- Injured teeth
- Discolored teeth
- Dental anxiety
What Should I Look For In A Family Dentist?
When choosing a dentist for your family, you want to make sure you find someone who’s qualified and personable. Your dentist should make you feel comfortable, spend adequate time with you, and acknowledge your concerns.
If you have small children, you want to make sure your dentist is good with kids and adults alike. Experiencing that familiarity and comfort at the dentist’s office is priceless.
Your dentist’s qualifications are also important. Since the dentists at Sunrise Dental offer expertise in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, you can get almost all of your family’s dental work done under one roof.
You may also want to consider the logistical factors of your dentist’s office. You may want a dentist with convenient business hours, after-hours care, and a nearby location. Scheduling all your family’s appointments in one swoop saves you lots of time and hassle.
The dentists at Sunrise Dental fit all the criteria above, combining the experience and personality you desire in a dentist. Schedule a meeting with one of our dentists by phone or online.
