Family dentistry is the professional dental care of patients of all ages. It covers a child’s first visits to the dentist, the care and maintenance of their parents’ teeth, and even the provision of dentures for older generations. An essential part of modern family dentistry is the timely detection and prevention of chains of infection to prevent the spread of caries and periodontitis between family members. As your family dentist, the more we know your family’s dental history, the more precise prognoses we can incorporate into our diagnoses and treatments.
Equipped with the latest innovative technology, we offer an extensive range of services in order to provide you with the highest quality of dental healthcare. Our Family Dentistry services include:
We believe that in the interest of lifelong dental health, the first appointments in early childhood are crucial. Through our child-oriented consultation and treatment, we ensure that dental care is fun and dental appointments are free of fear. Another fundamentally important aspect is that misaligned teeth and jaws can be corrected more effectively during the growth phase. We are able to recognize, at an early stage, whether your child needs orthodontic treatment or we can also take / recommend prophylactic measures in order to avoid costly orthodontic treatment. In addition, when children accompany their parents, grandparents and siblings to dental appointments, they will learn the great importance of visiting a dentist regularly. It also helps children build trust with the dentist when their parents and grandparents seek treatment from the same doctor.
There are additional advantages for both the patient and the dentist when family members visit the same dental practice. When it comes to organizing appointments, we schedule the check-up, preventive and treatment appointments of your family members in the best possible way, so that you save time and travel. In this way, appointments can be kept one after the other, which minimizes the time required for travel and waiting times.
