Family dentistry provides care for all members of the family. From your littles ones to your most senior members, David Epstein, DDS, and Nikita Vakil, DMD, create customized plans for everyone at The Woodlands Dental Group in The Woodlands, Texas.
Below, our team shares the top benefits of family dentistry.
The American Dental Association recommends that children and adults receive regular dental exams twice per year. If you have multiple people in your family, you might feel like it’s always someone’s turn for a dental cleaning!
That’s where family dentistry comes in. With family dentistry, all of your family’s dental needs can be consolidated under one roof. So, if you wanted, you could set up everyone’s appointments for the same day!
You could avoid having to drive to one place for your care, to another for your children’s care, and so on. In short, having a family dental practice can help you simplify your schedule.
Focus on prevention
While family dentists treat cavities, toothaches, knocked-out teeth, broken teeth, oral infections, and other dental issues, we aim to prevent these things from happening in the first place.
One of the pillars of family dentistry is offering preventive services for patients of all ages. For example, we offer:
- Oral exams, which also include oral cancer screenings
- Routine cleanings
- Digital X-rays, can help identify potential alignment issues
- Dental sealants, which can help prevent decay
- Flouride treatments
Preventive care can help Dr. Epstein and Dr. Vakil spot the warning signs of problems before they cause serious issues.
No matter how many people you have in your family and what their ages are, we customize each plan to each patient. Whether you or a family member is interested in cosmetic dentistry, restoration treatment, or another service, we can provide the care you need. Our list of comprehensive family dentistry services includes:
- Routine dental cleanings, including baby’s first dental cleaning
- Sleep apnea treatment with a certified DreamSleep® dentist
- Dental implants
- Clear aligners for teens and adults
- Tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth
- TMJ treatments
We can also help protect your child’s teeth with custom-made mouthguards for sports.
