Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry works to diagnose, treat, and prevent oral health problems in people of all ages. The team at Savannah Dental sees patients aged two and older. 

In addition to lowering your risk of tooth decay and gum disease, family dentistry makes it possible to receive the care you need at one single location, saving you time and energy.

What services does family dentistry include?

The team at Savannah Dental offers a variety of family dentistry services, including:

Dental exams

A dental exam is a routine screening used to check in on your oral health. During a  dental exam, your provider uses a small mirror to assess the health of your teeth, gums, and tongue. If they detect cavities, gum disease, or other issues of concern, they can make further recommendations for diagnosis and treatment.

Teeth cleanings

A professional teeth cleaning removes plaque and tartar from your teeth and beneath your gum line. Afterward, your provider polishes your teeth with gritty toothpaste, flosses your teeth to preserve the health of your gums, and applies a fluoride treatment if appropriate. 

Oral X-rays

Oral X-rays take detailed pictures of your jaws, tooth roots, and alveolar bone. They can detect cavities, impacted teeth, and abscesses or tumors that exist beneath your gum line. The team at Savannah Dental offers both panoramic X-rays and 3D cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) X-rays on-site.

Orthodontics

If you or your child have crooked or crowded teeth or misaligned jaws, orthodontics provides an effective way to realign them. The team at Savannah Dental provides orthodontic treatment with Invisalign, a cutting-edge method that uses a series of clear, nearly invisible plastic aligners to gradually straighten your smile.

Restorations

If you damage a tooth due to an accident or injury, or develop a cavity, you might benefit from dental restorations. Some of the most common dental restorations include crowns and bridges, dental bonding, veneers, and fillings.

How often should I schedule a family dentistry appointment?

If you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come, try to schedule a family dentistry appointment at least once every six months. Many oral health problems like gingivitis, cavities, and gum recession present subtle symptoms at first. Regular checkups can alert you when they respond best to treatment.
