Patients often ask us what makes family dentistry different from general dentistry. In short, family dentists are specially trained to care for the dental needs of patients of all ages.
This means that Beyond Dental Health can provide comprehensive dental care for your entire family, from young children to senior citizens.
We know that good oral health is important for everyone, and we take the time to get to know each of our patients and their individual needs. We also understand that different family members may have different schedules and expectations when it comes to dental appointments, so we work hard at our dental practice to accommodate everyone.
If you’re looking for family dentistry that can provide top-notch care for your whole family, then look no further than our team at Beyond Dental Health in Cohasset, MA. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
Preventative dental care and why is it important
Preventative care is an important part of staying healthy and maintaining good oral hygiene. It involves annual check-ups, twice-a-year cleanings, and regular X-rays in order to discover any hidden dental problems before they become worse.
By identifying issues early, you can avoid more severe oral health problems down the road. During an annual check-up, our skilled dentist will monitor your teeth for decay and gum disease, as well as check for any signs of other medical conditions.
Likewise, cleanings by a professional hygienist help to remove plaque buildup that can contribute to gum disease if left unchecked. Lastly, X-rays are done on a regular basis to assure no dental issues have developed beneath the surface of your teeth or gums.
Preventative care is essential for a healthy mouth and body – it’s never too early (or too late!) to start taking preventative measures with your oral health!
When to start getting preventative dental care
Getting preventive dental care is essential for staying healthy, and the earlier one starts, the better. Parents should know that a child’s first dental appointment should be scheduled shortly after their first tooth breaks through the gumline or after a child’s first birthday, whichever happens first.
To ensure our patients are living a healthy lifestyle, adults should get regular checkups even if they are not having any pain or symptoms. Depending on a person’s age, gender, and risk factors, there will be other screenings that our dentist may recommend, including additional visits if needed to maintain a healthy mouth.
The importance of choosing the right dentist
When it comes to preventative dental care and quality dentistry, Beyond Dental Care will play a key role. Our family dentistry team will be with you every step of the way and will keep you up-to-date on the care you need to maintain a healthy mouth, gums, and teeth.
Our dentists want to provide you with a dental home where you are comfortable and able to receive treatment in a stress-free environment. A strong dentist-patient relationship is essential for any oral healthcare plan to be successful so taking the time to foster a healthy match is an investment worth making.
Now that you know a little more about the preventative care you will receive at our Beyond Dental Health office in Cohasset, we hope you take the initiative to start scheduling regular appointments. We also have three other family dentistry locations in the area in Abington, Hanson, and South Weymouth.
Each of those locations provides the same level of superior dental services that our office in Cohasset does so you’ll be in good hands no matter which Beyond Dental Health location you choose.
