This important branch of family dentistrydentistry helps families with members of all ages keep their appointments, records and dental procedures organized and in the same place. Find out if a family dentist is the best choice for you with Dr. Lisa Baker in Bloomington, IN.

What is a family dentist? 
Family dentists have the same training and education as other dentists, but accept patients in all age groups, from babies cutting their very first teeth to elderly individuals. Family dentists can also have continuing education in other branches of dentistry, such as restoration dentistry, cosmetic dentistry or orthodontics. However, the family dentistry title simply means that they accept patients of all ages.

How can choosing a family dentist help me? 
Family dentists are an important asset in the world of dentistry. The ability to schedule all of your family’s dental appointments at the same practice helps cut down on extra trips to the dentist for parents and children, eliminating the need to take extra days off work or school. You can also schedule your and your children’s routine examinations and cleanings on the same day, arrive together and leave together. Additionally, your entire family’s dental records will be in one place, making tracking down files or x-rays for other medical professionals easier and less complicated.

Routine dental appointments will keep your and your children’s smiles healthy and clean and help prevent instances of tooth decay and gum disease. Children and adults should see their dentist at least twice a year for regular dental examinations and cleanings. This allows dentists to catch problems early in their most treatable stages. This benefits the tooth in the long run since, if left untreated, tooth decay and gum disease can result in tooth loss, which comes with its own array of side effects.
