Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is a type of dental practice that focuses on delivering care to all members of a family. This includes infants, toddlers, children, and adults of all ages, including those in retirement and beyond.

Many dentists prefer to specialize in treating only children or only adults, even though all dentists receive training in treating all age ranges. But family dentists make the decision to offer care across all age ranges, and they love working with families. 

What are some benefits of family dentistry?

Convenience is a primary benefit of family dentistry. The ability to book visits for multiple family members at once and to potentially have those visits occur on the same day is a welcome relief for busy parents.

You also save time and money when multiple family members are treated at the same practice. Less time spent on the phone booking visits or driving around town to multiple offices means more time spent on the things you enjoy. 

Recordkeeping is also a benefit of working with a family dentist. All the members in your family will have dental records that are created and stored in the same manner. If you decide to relocate, getting everyone’s records transferred to a new dental practice is as simple as one phone call.

What kinds of treatments are available through family dentistry?

Dr. Silva offers the same range of dental care through her practice that you would find in any other setting. Preventive dentistry is a cornerstone of the practice and helps children and adults maintain dental health and address issues in the earliest possible stages. 

Restorative treatments correct issues like dental decay and gum disease and include the following:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Fillings
  • Inlays and onlays
  • Bonding
  • Dental implants
  • Periodontal therapy

If you’d like to improve the appearance of your smile, treatments like Invisalign®, teeth whitening, and dental veneers are all available. Many restorative treatments also deliver aesthetic improvements and are sometimes covered under dental insurance.
