Allen Family Dentistry

It’s hard to argue with the convenience of a family dentist. Many dentists restrict the age groups they are willing (and trained) to treat. Some only treat children; these are called pedodontists. Some refuse to see children and focus on adults only. Finding a dentist that is great for your whole family is fantastic. This means that when your children grow there will be no disruption in their oral health care. When they turn sixteen or eighteen and pedodontist will not treat them anymore, many young people stop going to the dentist altogether because of anxiety over finding a new dentist. Family dentistry offers continuity and convenience.
However, some family dentists only focus on preventative dentistry. They make sure you come in for routine checkups, instruct you and your children on regular care of your teeth, clean plaque buildup, and treat any cavities. When you find a family dentistry practice where the dentist also offers restorative and cosmetic dentistry options, you can get all your dental needs cared for in one place. As you grow older, you may have more problems with teeth that need more advanced treatments or restorations. Teens may experience accidents that can damage teeth. A great family dentist can help to restore your child’s precious smile.
