Your family dentist
Family dentistry is a dental practice that addresses oral health and care at every stage of life. This means that your children and you can all go to the same dentist if that dentist practices family dentistry. At Arden Park Dental, Dr. Shahnaz Formoli has practiced family dentistry for years, making her not only one of the most experienced and skilled but one of the best dentists to tend to your family’s needs.
A family dentist cares for your child’s oral hygiene even when they grow up and reach adulthood, meaning that they don’t have to switch to different dentists again and again. A good family dentist like Dr. Formoli understands that children and adults have very different dental requirements, and therefore, provides a highly comprehensive set of dental services that cater to all your family’s needs.
Regular teeth cleaning
Teeth cleaning refers to the service offered by a family dentist where they clean your teeth professionally, preferably after every six months. It includes scaling the surface of your teeth so as to remove build-up of plaque and tartar, as well as stains. Scaling is followed by polishing, where we will thoroughly polish the surface of your teeth using specialized tools in order to achieve a smooth texture and a bright, shiny appearance. This can be followed by a fluoride treatment.
Taking care of our teeth, like brushing and flossing daily, can lead to loss of essential minerals from the tooth’s enamel. This can lead to tooth decay. Through remineralization, fluoride treatment helps your teeth resist acid attacks that could result from sugar and plaque bacteria present inside your mouth. If you take your fluoride treatment on time, early decay can even be effectively treated and reversed.
Crowns and bridges
Family dentists use dental bridges to fix one or more missing teeth. Dental bridges are, as the name suggests, common dental treatments which bridge the gap between a patient’s missing teeth. There are different types of dental bridges available, out of which a good family dentist like Dr. Formoli will recommend the most suitable for you. Dental crowns are used to cover a tooth that has been damaged. This improves functionality apart from enhancing its appearance.
