Family dentistry is the branch of dentistry that aims to meet the needs of an entire family. It focuses on the oral health needs of individuals from infants to seniors and addresses their specific needs with personalized treatment plans. The family dentist provides preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dental care to meet their patients' dental requirements. Family dentists are also trained to provide emergency care in case of oral trauma.
Children: Children should visit the dentist every six months to have their teeth cleaned, checked for cavities, and examined to track their growth.
Adults: Adults can also benefit from regular dental checkups. The family dentist can identify issues that are below the gum line or in hard-to-reach areas and provide suitable treatment.
Senior citizens: Seniors are more prone to oral health problems due to various reasons such as dexterity loss, diet, and medication.
