Cumberland Family Dentist

Cumberland Family DentistLike any other healthcare profession, dentistry has many different fields, including general & family dentistry. A general or family dentist acts as the first defense against tooth decay, gingivitis and gum disease. To help patients prevent tooth decay and gum disease, our family dentistry, Dental Associates of Cumberland, in Cumberland, RI emphasizes oral health education and preventative services for your family.

Oral Health Education

As a part of preventative care, a family dentist will supply patients with key dental information. To make sure a patient properly cares for his/her teeth and gums, a dentist will develop a customized dental hygiene plan. Different patients mean different teeth, and different teeth call for customized care and a unique dental plan.

Annual Dental Appointments

It’s recommended that patients visit their general or family dentist at least twice a year. This allows a dentist to detect any dental abnormalities (decay and gum disease) before they escalate and cause extensive dental damage.

A typical family dental checkup goes as follows:

  • X-rays
  • Dental exam
  • Professional cleaning
  • Review of exam

After an annual checkup, a dentist will go over the exam results with a patient. They may need to discuss concerns and plans for further treatment to fix any dental issues.

Minor Restorative Procedures

Besides preventative care, a general dentist often times can provide restorative services at the dental practice. Some typical restorative procedures are included in the list below:

  • Dental fillings
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Bonding
  • Crowns

It’s important to check with your family dentist to see if these restorative services are available. Optimal oral health is a team effort between patient and dentist. To avoid dental woes, a patient needs to maintain a strict oral hygiene regiment (recommended by a general dentist) and eat healthy.
