WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM FAMILY DENTAL CARE?
Each individual, regardless of their age, dental history, or at-home brushing and flossing routine, needs to receive professional oral care to ensure the health of their smile and dental structures. The American Dental Association (ADA) asserts that babies should visit the dentist before their first birthday. Infants can develop cavities and tooth decay as young as two years old so it's important for even young children to receive appropriate dental care and necessary preventive treatments. Each member of your family, regardless of their age, should have a professional teeth cleaning at Oakridge Dental at least two times a year to remove the plaque buildup that can eventually lead to tooth decay and other prominent issues.
WHAT DOES FAMILY-FOCUSED CARE INVOLVE?
Caring for the needs of your family is approached on an individual basis. People of different ages require different types of care, such as pediatric techniques for children and geriatric dentistry for older adults. To address your unique dental needs, our team will first conduct a comprehensive oral exam and perform a professional cleaning. If any abnormalities are noticed, additional treatment or testing may be suggested. Prior to any procedure, Dr. Call will go over your options in detail to make sure you understand every step of your care. He may also suggest preventive treatments, including fluoride applications or dental sealants, which can benefit kids, teens, and adults alike.
After each checkup, Dr. Call will work with each member of your family individually to help them develop a proper at-home oral health routine and go over different treatments or techniques that may help prevent tooth decay or other issues. An essential part of each patient's oral hygiene regimen should be regular brushing and flossing. Incorporating a mouth rinse into your daily routine can also benefit your dental wellness. Dr. Call or a member of his team can go over proper brushing and flossing techniques at the end of your appointment. To maintain the health of your teeth, you should continue to schedule biannual cleanings and yearly exams for each member of your family at Oakridge Dental. Staying on top of your oral health may prevent future issues and allow Dr. Call to diagnose any problems before they develop into bigger concerns.
