Family Dentist in Tampa, New Tampa, Plant City & Nearby Cities
A family dentist differs from a general dentist in that the family dentist doesn’t restrict the age groups of the patients that he or she cares for. The family dentist is involved with the overall oral health of the patient. They’re often referred to as the first defense against tooth decay and disease. Their practices turn on preventative and general restorative dentistry. The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your family dentist at least twice a year for checkups. By practicing preventative dentistry along with your family dentist, issues can be identified long before they become symptomatic.
If cavities are found in a routine examination by your family dentist, he or she will treat them with various types of dental fillings. If left untreated, cavities are likely to develop into more significant dental issues that might require more sophisticated procedures like:
- Dental crowns
- Root canals
- Dental implants
- Other restorative dental procedures
Most family dentists don’t stop with their dental education. Many participate in continuing education programs to become proficient in providing other dental treatments like cosmetic treatments that include teeth whitening, veneers or inlays and on lays.
