There’s no doubt we’ve all heard of family dentistry, but do we understand the difference between this practice and general dentistry? If you’re a new parent or new to the Boynton Beach area, it is critical to find a reputable local dentist to protect your oral health.
Here, the experts at Eriks Dental Group explain why we have an immaculate history of dentistry you can count on.
What Is Family Dentistry?
At Eriks Dental Group, Dr. Ty Eriks and his trusted team are able to treat patients of all ages. Too often, other dental groups focus on treating one age range. By offering family dentistry, we can treat family members at the same time! This saves you countless hours of having to schedule different appointments several days or even months apart.
While family and general dentistry are similar in nature, most family dentists are more suitable to handle pediatric dental issues. Eriks Dental Group ensures that we can address any issues at any stage during your and your family’s lives.
What Do Family Dentists Do?
There is no one size fits all approach to dentistry. Eriks Dental Group sees patients with a variety of issues every day! Family dentists focus on general and preventative dentistry to keep you smiling brightly. Some of the most common services we offer include:
Cleaning And Exams
Great oral health begins with exams every six months. Regular exams are crucial to detecting underlying issues, such as cavities and gingivitis, before they get serious.
While cavity fillings are a common service we offer, preventing tooth decay is a top priority of family dentists.
If tooth decay advances too much, your best option will likely be a crown. Other reasons you may require a crown include chipped teeth, filling breaks, and misshaped or stained teeth.
Eriks Dental Group offers a wide variety of cosmetic services, which likely isn’t offered through pediatric or general dentist offices. Our cosmetic range includes teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, orthodontics, and Invisalign.
