What is Family Dentistry?
The practice of family dentistry is similar to general dentistry, with a few key exceptions. Both types of dentistry handle oral hygiene and tooth health. Family dentists usually accept patients of all ages, making a family dentistry office a convenient choice if you have children in your home. Family dentists care for your child’s baby teeth as well as permanent teeth.
Family dentistry provides preventative dentistry services, such as regular cleanings and fluoride treatments, and other basic dental work that may be needed. It is important to schedule regular appointments for checkups, so that any problems can be found before they require the care of a specialist like an orthodontist. Implants, root canals, and periodontal treatments are examples of dental services that require the services of a specialist. We will also take x-rays of the teeth on a timely basis to look for cavities. As your family dentist, Dr. Isbell can fill the cavities and help to prevent further problems.
If you see your dentist every six months, you might never have to seek additional dental services. Dr. Isbell is trained to help you keep your teeth healthy and can even provide teeth whitening services to keep your smile bright. Dr. Isbell will give you tips and recommendations for brushing, flossing and rinsing to prevent plaque and tooth decay between appointments. Finding a family dentistry practice that your whole family is comfortable with can take a lot of stress out of making and keeping your regularly scheduled appointments- let Isbell Family Dental make that choice an easy one.
