Understanding Your Family’s Dental Needs
It is the goal of any family dentistry practice to work closely with patients of many different ages and develop appropriate solutions for maintaining their oral health. Our Mason dentists understand how oral health needs change over time, and we take pride in providing quality care at multiple points in a patient’s life.
Dr. Tara and Dr. Gary will always take your individual needs or those of your loved one into account when recommending treatment. Generally, a family dentist will focus on the following aspects of care based on age:
- Children: Preventative care and instilling good oral hygiene habits.
- Teenagers: Continued preventative care and guidance on protecting teeth into adulthood. Our dentists can also discuss whether or not your child might benefit from orthodontics.
- Adults (age 18-65): During regular checkups, our dentists will check for issues like gum disease, teeth grinding, and tooth sensitivity, as well as make sure any restorations are intact and in place.
- Seniors (65 and older): Active prevention of tooth decay and gum disease can reduce the risk of tooth loss in elderly patients. In the event of tooth loss, our dentists can recommend multiple replacement options, from dentures to dental implants.
Dental health needs change not just with age but life events, too. Pregnant women, for example, need to be diligent about dental care in order to keep their gums healthy and protect their baby.
