Benefits of Family Dental Care

Our family-friendly dentistry makes it easy to stay on top of your whole family’s oral health. We offer convenient family scheduling. Now, you can make appointments for everyone in your family in the same time block. This saves busy parents so much time. And, since there are so many benefits to keeping up with your oral hygiene, it’s truly a win-win.

Regular dental checkups pack a lot of power when it comes to maintaining healthy teeth. Benefits of regular dental checkups include:

Whiter Teeth

We all want a beautiful white smile. Preventative oral care makes that bright white smile a reality. For instance, regular cleanings remove stubborn plaque and food stains.

Healthier Teeth

You are less susceptible to tooth decay if you take diligent care of your teeth. Therefore, by scheduling regular appointments with our family dentistry team, you will suffer from fewer cavities. In addition, that means fewer fillings. We find this always makes our patients happy!

Avoid Tooth Loss

Serious tooth decay problems result from neglectful oral hygiene and can lead to bone and tooth loss. Unfortunately, the only way to resolve badly progressed tooth decay is with extraction and replacement with dental implants. Regular visits to the dentist will help catch issues when they are still small, thus saving you the hassle of dental pain and the need for more advanced treatments.

Fresh Breath

Bad breath is embarrassing and can make you feel self-conscious. Thankfully, good dental hygiene and regular check-ups can help eliminate the frustrating problem of bad breath. Did you know that fresh breath has been found to assist in career advancement and success in social situations?

Prevent Serious Health Problems

New research indicates tooth decay and gum disease are related to much more serious health issues such as heart disease, oral cancer, and diabetes. Through scheduled visits, we assess and track any changes in your oral health. That way, you will always have peace of mind knowing your mouth is healthy and clean.

Preventative Dental Care Tips for the Whole Family

Our dental team ensures that your family always receives expert advice on preventive dental care. Our family dentists will explain in detail how to take care of your teeth so you can prevent problems from occurring. Here’s some of the preventive advice to help you and your family care for those pearly whites:

  • Brush and floss twice a day
  • Show your kids how to brush and if they’re too young, brush their teeth
  • Restrict the intake of sweets and starchy foods that can buildup on the enamel and encourage the growth of bacteria. Children should eat cookies, cakes, and candies only on special occasions and in moderation
  • Brush before going to bed and don’t eat anything afterward
  • Eat lots of fruits and vegetables
  • Avoid snacking in between meals to give your teeth time to fight off cavities-causing bacteria

FAQs

A family dentist is your traditional, general dental practitioner. However, unlike some traditional dentists who refer children to a pediatric specialist, family dentists choose to provide comprehensive services for all ages under one roof. Family dentistry encompasses pediatric dental treatments up to restorative therapies for seniors, and everything in-between!

Having a family dentist means that you can enjoy the convenience of taking everyone in your household to the same dental provider. Scheduling dental checkups is easier because you don’t have to drive back and forth across Calgary taking everyone to different dental offices. Since your children will grow up with the same dentist that you see, the office is familiar with your unique circumstances, any hereditary dental issues, and can better accommodate any specific needs.

Growing up with a great family dentist in Calgary can help your child experience a positive outlook on their dental care. Early preventative visits in a comfortable atmosphere do a lot for reducing the risk of dental phobia or anxiety as your child gets older.

If you’re already bringing your children to a pediatric dentist, you might be considering making the switch to a Calgary family dental office. Some of the instances when it’s appropriate to move your child to another dentist’s office might include examples like:

  • Your child is old enough that he or she may not want to go to a kid’s dentist and wants to see the same dentist that older members of their family do.
  • When your teen is approaching their fully developed smile, which is usually just before they head off to college.
  • A fully developed permanent tooth requires reconstruction or a procedure not offered in a pediatric dentist’s office (such as a root canal or ceramic crown).
  • Your child is comfortable sitting through a regular checkup and cleaning without getting anxious, and they don’t have any pressing dental concerns such as untreated decay.

If you’re switching to a Calgary family dentist, be sure to ask your pediatric dentist’s office to transfer any records such as digital X-rays or photographs, which are useful for evaluating the overall course of your child’s oral development.

If you’re looking for the best family dentist in Calgary, some of the things you’ll want to consider are the services available in their practice, what age patients they will see (are young children accepted?) and their hours of operation. As long as all of these criteria meet your family’s needs, you’ll have the information you need to narrow down your selection.

Additionally, you might want to consider visiting the dentist first to get a feel for the office. Is the dentist and his/her staff friendly? Do they accept your dental insurance? Is the practice clean? If you want to get a general feel for the environment, it never hurts to ask them for a brief consultation or second opinion. In most cases, your first encounter with the office as a whole will give you an idea as to what to expect in the future.

When all else fails, it helps to ask your friends, neighbours, and co-workers who they see for their family’s dental needs. The best Calgary dentists can always be found via word-of-mouth!
