What Is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry is an approach to general dentistry where a dental office strives to meet the changing needs of people across their entire lives. It not only helps ensure continuity of care, but it can also help families get better care according to their needs.

Why Families Benefit from Seeing the Same Dentist

It makes sense for everyone in the family to see the same dentist for many simple reasons. It’s convenient, comfortable, and practical. When you choose a suitable dentist for your family, it’s wise for everyone to go there–that’s just the most straightforward approach. It’s also comfortable when the family sees the same dentist. You all know the same dentist and get the same high-quality care. You all know that you can trust them–there’s no doubt. Plus, seeing the same dentist makes handling practical details like payment easy. You can have your details on file and utilize them. For example, if you decide to use Care Credit, you know you’re approved, and it will be accepted.

There are also some more complex reasons why families benefit from seeing the same dentist. Dental problems like cavities and gum disease run in families. This is partly genetic: you share specific enamel and immune system characteristics that can affect your oral health. It’s also partly that families share oral bacteria. You’ll pass oral bacteria around without sharing spoons, cups, or toothbrushes. There are also aspects of your home culture that influence your oral health. What types of food do you eat? Do you drink soda in your house? How rigorous is your oral hygiene? Is there a smoker in the house?

When you see a family dentist, they know about your family history and can anticipate oral health challenges.

Patient Testimonials

“I had to take my daughter that is terrified of dentists in to get her cavity taken care of. A friend recommended Collins Dentistry and said they would make the experience a good one (as good as going to the dentist can be!). They used really good numbing gel and she didn’t even cry. I have recommended them to friends.”

– Amy H.

Family Dentistry Is Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is a significant part of general dentistry and, therefore, one of the most critical aspects of family dentistry.

Regular dental checkups are essential to preventive dentistry; your family dentist will provide these. Your hygienist will clean your teeth thoroughly to remove hard deposits (tartar) that you can’t remove at home. Family dentist Dr. Collins will perform a detailed examination of your teeth and gums to identify any oral health issues you might be facing–and some that are just starting. He will look at your dental X-rays to identify problems that might not be visible to the naked eye.

As part of your checkup, Dr. Collins will recommend any beneficial changes to your home hygiene routine that he thinks might be prudent.

Family Dentistry Is Restorative Dentistry

If your regular dental checkups reveal damage to your teeth, your family dentist can provide restorative dentistry to repair damaged teeth.

The most common restorative dentistry procedure is a filling. A simple composite filling can repair a small cavity, reducing the risk that you’ll experience further tooth decay. For larger cavities and to replace metal amalgam fillings, we recommend dental inlays and onlays. These ceramic fillings strengthen the teeth and look more like natural tooth enamel. They’re beautiful, like porcelain veneers, but help repair your teeth.

Dr. Collins might recommend a dental crown if your tooth is too damaged for a simple filling. A dental crown repairs, protects, and beautifies a damaged tooth.

There are tooth replacement options if you have one or more teeth that cannot be saved. Collins Family Dentistry offers dental implants and dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
