Family dentistry addresses oral health at every stage of life. Children have very different dental needs than adults, and qualified family dentists deliver comprehensive oral care from baby teeth to permanent teeth.
Like general dentistry, family dentistry is concerned with oral hygiene and the health of your teeth. However, family dentists focus on the unique needs of children of all ages as well as adults. Just a few of the services offered by our office are:
- Regular cleanings
- Fluoride treatments
- Cavity identification and filling
- Treatments for gum disease
Not only do family dentists understand how children’s teeth change with age, but they also recognize that children may fear going to the dentist. Dr. Helms and our hygienists have a gentle approach so that children will develop positive associations with regular dental checkups and build good oral hygiene habits for life.
