Regular visits to your family dentist provide a simple way to protect your family's smiles. Your Milford, CT, dentist, Dr. Bruce Schechter, Family Dentistryoffers a variety of dental service and procedures that will improve your oral health.

What are the advantages of visiting a family dentist?

Family dentists treat dental issues that arise at any age, unlike other dentists that may specialize in treating a particular age group. Although "fillings" or "cleanings" may be the first words that spring to mind when you think of dentists, family dentists do in-fact offer many more services.

Your family dentist can help you:

  • Keep Your Teeth Healthy: Do you visit the dentist every six months? Regular visits allow your dentist to spot cavities and other dental issues while they're still small and easier to treat. Checkups also include cleanings that remove cavity-causing plaque and tartar from your mouth, which helps decrease your chances for tooth decay and gum disease risk. During checkups, your dentist can also apply sealants that prevent cavities in your child's pre-molars and molars.
  • Enhance the Appearance of Your Smile: Your family dentist offers treatments that repair damage and improve the way your teeth look. If you have a broken tooth, a crown may be recommended, while a porcelain veneer or bonding can take care of a small chip. If your teeth aren't as white as you'd like, teeth whitening or veneers can transform your smile.
  • Restore Missing Teeth: Missing teeth affect your appearance and hamper your ability to chew easily. Luckily, your family dentist offers several restoration options that will fill the gaps in your smile, including bridges, dentures, and dental implants.

Family dentists offer one-stop convenience for busy families. When everyone in your home visits the same dentist, you can schedule a group checkup with back-to-back appointments.

Are your kids apprehensive during healthcare visits? Your Milford dentist understands that visits can be a little scary for very young patients will accordingly take the time to explain the checkup process in words that your child understands. As a parent, you serve as a role model for your child even while at the dental office. If your son or daughter sees that you're comfortable during your checkup, they may also be more likely to relax and cooperate.
