Family Dentistry that Cares

Each family dentist understands the amount of work involved in keeping patients in the best of oral care. We not only perform a variety of dental procedures, but will also educate you and your family about oral hygiene. We recommend patients to visit the family dentist at least twice a year for their checkups and a cleaning performed by the family dentist and hygienist. This will ensure your teeth remain in the best health and free of Gingivitis and other health conditions for the long term. We perform extensive analysis at each visit, checking for gum disease, checking for signs of decay and oral cancer.

Family Dentist Seattle WAYour child’s first tooth erupts between 6-12 months and the remainder of their 20 primary teeth also known as “baby teeth” erupt by age 3. Gums tend to feel sore and cause your child to feel irritable, we recommend that you soothe gums by rubbing a cool wet cloth across them or a possibly a teething ring. Permanent teeth begin arriving after age 6 and continue till about 21 years old. As new teeth erupt, examine them every few weeks for any discoloration that can be caused by decay. Sugary foods and liquids can attack a new tooth. Adopting healthy oral hygiene habits at a young age is helpful for long term dental health. Brushing can be fun and you and your child should begin to brush as soon as the first tooth arrives. Flossing is also essential for excellent oral hygiene.
