Best Candidates for Family Dental Care
The ADA (American Dental Association) suggests that children should be taken to the dentist before their first birthday. Infants can begin to develop cavities and tooth decay as soon as the age of two, so it is vital for them to receive the necessary treatment and preventive options. From there, you and your family should schedule appointments at People's Dental at least two times a year. Any individual, no matter what the age, should visit our practice if they notice any pain, discomfort, or abnormalities in their teeth, gums, or jaw. If trouble is addressed early, there can be more treatment options available and a more successful recovery.
What to Expect with Family Dental Care
The typical appointment will consist of a dental examination and cleaning. Any additional treatments will be recommended as necessary. Before you receive a treatment, our team will consult with you about which ones would be most ideal for you, to address cavities, misaligned teeth, and more. We may also suggest preventive procedures, like fluoride treatments and dental sealants for younger patients while their mouth continues to develop.
Family Dental Care Follow-Up
After every appointment, our team will help you create a personalized care plan to improve your family's dental health. One of the most important elements is following a proper at-home oral hygiene routine, which includes frequent flossing and brushing. A People's Dental team member may show you proper cleaning techniques or recommend products for problems. Regular appointments at People's Dental can also help us to monitor your family's oral health and diagnose small concerns before they become larger problems.
Family Dental Care Insurance Coverage
Even though most general dental procedures are generally covered by insurance, we will determine your benefits with your insurance company before billing you for any out-of-pocket costs. People's Dental accepts many forms of payment and we can help you find low-interest medical financing to make your treatment more affordable.
