What Is Family Dentistry?

October 5, 2012

As you may have guessed from the playful nature of our last post, our doctors treat patients of all ages. That means our Painesville, Jefferson, and Chardon offices offer what’s called family dentistry. An office that offers family dentistry puts a special emphasis on the needs of children as well as adults. Why? Because a healthy smile is important, no matter how young or old you are.

As a family dental office for patients from Painesville, Jefferson, and Chardon, our promise is to help you and your little one cultivate healthy smiles. One way we’ll do that is through regular checkups and professional cleanings. During a checkup and cleaning our doctors will look for common oral health problems like gum disease or tooth decay. We can also offer homecare tips to help you and your little one build stronger brushing and flossing habits. Great homecare is essential for building a strong, healthy smile.

We can also give your child’s smile extra protection with dental sealants or fluoride supplements. Dental sealants are easy to apply and create an impenetrable barrier to food particles and bacteria. Fluoride supplements, on the other hand, work by attracting important minerals to teeth, making them stronger in the process.

Is it time for you or your child to come see us for a checkup? Call our office in Painesville, Jefferson, or Chardon to schedule a visit. We’re happy to help patients of all ages improve their smiles.
