DENTAL CARE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Family Dentistry Cheltenham

Family dentistry addresses the oral health of people from all stages of life.

Family Dentistry Cheltenham

Children have different dental needs compared to adults, and qualified family dentists deliver comprehensive oral care from baby teeth to permanent teeth.

Family dentistry is concerned with oral hygiene and the health of your teeth.

When you choose a trusted family dentist, you’re choosing a practice that will be able to address the oral needs of you and your children at every stage of life.

Family Dentistry Services – What To Expect

A few of the services offered by family dentists are:

Regular cleanings – Teeth cleanings and 6-monthly exams are extremely important, as they allow your dentist to keep track of the health of your mouth or your child’s oral hygiene.

Fluoride treatments – Fluoride and dental sealants can help combat cavities and are often used in children who are cavity-prone.

Cavity detection and filling – Cavities are, by far, the most common preventable childhood health condition. Your Cheltenham dentist can identify and treat cavities with fillings.

Orthodontic treatments – We offer orthodontic consultations and treatments for crooked teeth and irregular bites.

Gum disease treatments – Gum disease is very common in adults, so we use procedures like deep cleanings, gum flap surgery, and antibiotics to deal with cases of gum disease.

Family dentists not only understand how children’s teeth change with age, but they also recognise that children may fear going to the dentist.

Your Cheltenham dentist has a gentle approach so that children will develop positive associations with regular dental check-ups and build good oral hygiene habits for life.

Frequently Asked Questions

At what age should I take my child to the dentist for the first time?
Take your children for their first dental appointment when they are around six months old. If you notice that your children have discoloured teeth, you will want to bring them in before this.
What should I use to clean my baby’s teeth?
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush with a small head. There are designed especially for infants that are perfect to use at bedtime.
How often should I see the dentist?
Children, teens, and adults should all visit the dentist for a regular check-up at least once every six months.

Patients who are at a greater risk for oral cancers or gum diseases may be required to see the dentist more than just twice a year. Your Cheltenham dentist will help determine how often you should visit the dentist for regular check-ups.
