Family Dentistry Q&A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry includes dental care for the entire family to keep your mouth healthy, improve the appearance of your smile, and treat oral health problems like cavities and gum disease. White Hill Dental provides dental services to patients of all ages, including:

  • Checkups
  • Cleanings
  • Children’s dentistry
  • Dental implants
  • Restorative dentistry
  • Cosmetic dentistry

The team at White Hill Dental can satisfy all of your family’s dental needs.

What is a family dentistry visit like?

During a visit to White Hill Dental, you or your child receives a professional teeth cleaning with a hygienist, X-rays (if recommended), and a dental examination. If you have any dental concerns, you can address them during your appointment.

If you have cavities, gum disease, or another oral health condition, the White Hill Dental team recommends appropriate treatments. They may suggest fillings for cavities, medications or surgery for gum disease, or bonding and contouring to restore chipped, cracked teeth.

The care you’ll receive at White Hill Dental eases dental anxiety in a compassionate, welcoming environment. Even young children feel at ease with the experienced, friendly staff.

How often should I visit a family dentist?

Your White Hill Dental provider lets you know how often to come in for cleanings and dental exams. It might be every six months or more often if you have an oral health condition like gum disease. If you experience pain or mouth trauma – such as a chipped or cracked tooth – schedule an appointment immediately.

How should I care for my teeth between visits?

Caring for you and your child’s teeth between dental visits helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends the following oral healthcare regimen at home:

  • Brush your teeth for two minutes twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush
  • Place your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gums
  • Floss every day
  • Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months, or when the brush gets frayed
  • Use an ADA-accepted fluoride toothpaste daily
  • Avoid or limit sugary foods
