Family dentistry is a branch of dental care that focuses on the entire family's oral health. At N STREET DENTAL, our family dentist can provide preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dental treatments for patients of all ages.
Preventative dentistry focuses on keeping smiles healthy through regular cleanings and exams. During preventive appointments, your family dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth for problems and treat them early before they become major problems requiring more complex treatments. Restorative dentistry treats existing damage, rebuilds broken teeth, and replaces missing ones. Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of a patient’s smile through various cosmetic techniques, including whitening, bonding, and porcelain veneers.
What Services Does Family Dentistry Offer?
From pediatric dentistry to senior care, a family dentist helps patients maintain healthy mouths that last a lifetime. Family dentists provide a wide range of dental treatments for their patients. Routine services like cleanings and exams are given to all patients regardless of age. Preventive treatments like fluoride and sealants may also be provided to younger members of the household who are more prone to cavities or damage from decay. Restorative services are standard and include fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures. The solutions are often tooth-colored with children, so they’re not evident as they grow.
When it comes time to begin orthodontic treatment, many family dentists offer services for teens and adults. Teens may benefit from braces or other alignment devices, while adults can opt for Invisalign for a better-feeling and more discreet treatment option. Some family dentists even offer cosmetic dentistry options for adults who want to look their best without committing to invasive procedures. These options may include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, and other cosmetic solutions. Family dentists will also care for conditions that affect the teeth but aren’t necessarily dental. For example, a dentist may treat sleep apnea if a patient has the condition.

Your whole family will feel more comfortable at the dentist’s office when you have a dentist you know and trust to treat you. Plus, your kids will enjoy attending the dentist, knowing you’ve already been there!
