Sometimes, it is hard to find the right dentist for my young family. Many seem to be geared toward older patients. I live in American Fork, Utah, and there are not too many dentistry clinics in my immediate area. This is why, while looking for an office for family dental, I expanded my search. I looked in Pleasant grove, Saratoga Springs, the Provo Orem area, and more. I finally found the perfect young family dental office in Provo. They were easy to contact and make an appointment with. They dealt with all kinds of different dental procedures, and even were able to put a smile on my kidsâ€™ face. My youngest boy, at six years old, is terrified of the dentist. If he hears me breathe the word dentist, he starts to go cry and think of reasons to convince me not to take him there. Sometimes, I wish they could use sedation just for a simple checkup. Unfortunately, that kind of sedation is used primarily or wisdom teeth. While my son grew more and more nervous about our dental visit, I grew more and more excited. I was looking forward to my teeth whitening. Yellow teeth have always been one of my biggest pet-peeves. I could hardly wait to see if the new teeth whitening tools would work even though I had a few crowns and white fillings. Since I found this dentist, I donâ€™t think I will want to take my young family anywhere else. They handle general dentistry very well, especially with kids. I wouldnâ€™t trust my teeth with anyone else. I wouldnâ€™t trust my kids as patients to anyone else either. I know my boys can be tough to handle. I know that better than anyone else, and it pains me to imagine what it must be like as a dentist to try and work on the little devils. This Provo dentist, however, was great with my family. He was able to give care to both my childrenâ€™s teeth, and my children themselves. My six-year-old is still a chicken when it comes to going to the dentist, but now that he has a favorite doctor; it is much easier to convince him not to hide under his bed. Whether you are looking to get veneers, crowns, implants, teeth whitening, cavity fillings, or just a simple checkup, find my new favorite dentist in the Provo Orem area. This Provo dental office will not disappoint you if you have a young family to care for. They did a great job caring for my young children, and they also did a great job caring for me. I loved the results of my teeth whitening. I plan to be a loyal patient for a long time. Having said that, I still hope my trips to the dentist are far and few in between, but with 4 boys, that is just too much to ask, and I know it. It will make things easier knowing that I can take my whole family to one dentist and get a variety of great services. From the time I made the appointment, to the time I walked out the door, I felt like my family was really cared for.
What do you know about dentistry, particularly about American Fork Dentistry? Do you know what is the difference between cosmetic dentistry and general dentistry? And which type of dentistry is recommended for your particular oral health needs? Keep reading to learn more about oral health, cosmetic dentistry, general dentistry, and dentists and teeth in general. Â First, let’s talk about general dentistry, and your regular, family dentist. A family dentist is similar to a family doctor, except that they work with teeth instead of bodies. Family dentists go to dental school and spend a lot of time and money at dental school learning how to care for the overall oral health and teeth needs of patients all over the place. If you want a general teeth cleaning, or you have a painful cavity or root canal in a tooth, general dentistry and a family dentist are your go to solutions. And the American Dental Association firmly recommends that you visit a family dentist for a general dentistry check up at least twice a year for the best oral health and teeth health you can get. Â But what about the other types of dentistry? Well, for starters, there is cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is like specialized dentistry. A cosmetic dentist can perform unique and specialized tooth care for you and your teeth. Tooth care such as teeth whitening, or dental implants. While cosmetic dentistry is not necessary for oral health, cosmetic dentistry definitely helps a person feel good about their teeth, and confident about each tooth that makes up a beautiful smile. Â So why does the American Dental Association recommend a dentistry visit to a local general dentist at least twice a year? You brush your teeth every day, right? And you take special care to floss between each tooth as part of your teeth care routine, right? So why should you follow the recommendation of the American Dental Association and visit a dentist twice a year, at minimum? The American Dental Association recommends frequent dentist visits because dentistry is supposed to be a preventative medicine. In other words, the goal of dentistry, and the goal of your dentist and his dental staff, is to catch any tooth problems that may be forming in your teeth before they get big, and before they get painful. While the best cavity is a cavity that doesn’t exist in your teeth, the second best cavity is a cavity that your dentist and his dental staff catches before it starts to hurt your teeth. Dentistry works because with frequent dentistry visits, your dentist can solve problems, like gum disease, before they start. Â So whether you are interested in cosmetic dentistry or not, and there is no reason why you shouldn’t be because cosmetic dentistry treatments, such as teeth whitening, are wonderful for the teeth, you should still follow the advice of the American Dental Association and visit your general dentistry dental clinic at least twice a year for preventative dentistry teeth and oral health care. After all, your dentist didn’t go to dental school for the social life.
