Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry provides all-inclusive oral health care for people of all ages. It includes preventive screenings, routine exams, and educational guidance on oral hygiene and nutrition.  

Family dentists, like the team at Esi Cosmetic & General Dentistry, have extensive training and expertise. They’re familiar with common oral health problems that affect children and adults and know how to catch them early on before they result in more serious issues.

What services does family dentistry provide?

At Esi Cosmetic & General Dentistry, the team offers a variety of family dentistry services, including:

Oral exams

An oral exam is a preventive measure that assesses the health of your teeth, gums, and smile. During an exam, your provider uses a circular mirror to observe each quadrant of your mouth; they can order additional testing like a tissue biopsy if they detect any abnormalities.

X-rays

X-rays combine low amounts of radiation and small electronic sensors to collect detailed photographs of your tooth roots, alveolar bone, and jaw. They help the team detect potentially serious oral health problems invisible to the naked eye, like deep decay or bone loss.

Teeth cleaning

Teeth cleaning prevents dental plaque from building up on your teeth and around the base of your gums. It’s an integral part of preventive oral health and reduces the risk of cavities, gum disease, and gum recession.

Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®

Orthodontic treatment improves the alignment of your teeth and jaw. Instead of brackets and metal archwires like traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of clear, plastic mouthpieces.  During the course of treatment, you wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day.

Restorative dentistry

If you crack or chip a tooth or develop a cavity, the team might recommend restorative dentistry. Restorative dentistry uses prosthetics like crowns, bridges, and dental implants to rehabilitate your smile and prevent further complications.

Cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry corrects aesthetic imperfections like tooth stains, a gummy smile, or gaps between teeth. Depending on your needs, the team might recommend teeth whitening, cosmetic gum contouring, or veneers.

Root canals

Root canal therapy removes the damaged or inflamed pulp from the center of your tooth. This preserves your natural tooth, preventing the need for an extraction.

What if I need to see a specialist?

The Esi Cosmetic & General Dentistry team can access advanced tools and diagnostic technology, allowing them to conduct most procedures on-site. If they’re unable to assist you or a member of your family for some reason, they can refer you to a specialist nearby and coordinate care.
