Going to the dentist for regular preventive care and practicing good oral hygiene habits at home are the most important steps in protecting your teeth and gums from decay and gum disease. But finding the time to get everyone the care they need when they need it can sometimes seem next to impossible for busy families. One member of the family may only need a checkup and dental cleaning, while another may need to have a cavity filled or dental implants for missing teeth. Taking everyone in the family to a different dentist for different needs can be time-consuming, expensive, and unnecessary. Dr. Timothy Brooks, a family dentist in Huntsville, AL, solves this problem by offering a range of general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services in a single practice for patients of all ages.
A family dentist offers the same services as a general and cosmetic dentist but does not have age restrictions (some dentists will only treat adult or pediatric patients, for example) so that your whole family can receive dental care in a single practice. For young children and teenagers, getting care from a trusted family dentist can help to ease fear and anxiety around dental care and encourage a long-term commitment to good oral hygiene and health practices.
If your family has a history of oral health problems like gum disease, a family dentist can offer personalized and preventive care and know exactly what to look for before symptoms have a chance to develop and progress.
Family dentistry services include:
- Checkups and professional dental cleanings
- Cosmetic dentistry services like professional teeth whitening
- Oral cancer screenings
- Invisalign clear aligner trays
- Dental implants
Getting all of your dental care in one place can save your family time and minimize much of the stress and anxiety that often comes along with going to the dentist. For more information, contact our office by calling (256) 883-8008 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Brooks today.
