What Your Family Dentist Can Do For You
posted: Jan. 29, 2018.
Getting to the dentist for regular preventive care is essential for ongoing oral health. But despite the fact that the American Dental Association (ADA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend a check up and professional dental cleaning every six months, many people struggle to get to the dentist - until something goes wrong. If you have a family, coordinating regular appointments for everyone can seem downright impossible. But a family dentist makes it easier for everyone in your household to get the care they need by providing comprehensive dental care and services in one practice for patients of all ages. Dr. Jeffrey Johnson and Dr. Jodi Johnson offer family dentistry services in St. Louis, MO, for pediatric and adult patients.
Family Dentistry in St. Louis, MO
Everyone's dental needs are different, and some people require more care and follow up treatment than others. A typical family may have young children and teenagers who need braces or a filling for a cavity, as well as adults with dental needs ranging from root canal therapy to gum disease treatment. Family dentists offer the same treatment options and services as a general dentist, but they treat patients of all ages in one practice.
Some of the typical services offer at a family dental practice include:
- Preventive care (check ups and dental cleanings, sealants)
- Cosmetic dentistry (teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, bonding)
- Crowns and bridgework
- Dental implants
- Root canal therapy
- Oral surgery
Family dentists offer convenient and personalized care for generations of patients. Because many dental conditions like gum disease can be genetic and run in families, working with a family dentist can help catch and treat potential problems early.
