Family dentistry involves providing dental care to people of all ages. It is one of the most rewarding aspects of dentistry as it allows us to watch our patients grow up in our practice.
With a Saskatoon dentist at West 14 Dental, you get the benefit of experience and a range of expanded services with a focus on preventing and treating the most common dental ailments that could affect an individual of any age.
Family Dentistry vs. Traditional Dentistry
Family dentistry is unique in the fact that they provide a wide range of treatments in-house, while most dental practices are built around a specialty. Family dentists can treat your entire family on the same day, and are your primary care dentists.
Our Saskatoon dentistry focuses on different areas like endodontics, orthodontics, and even cosmetic dentistry for all ages. What makes our dentistry so wonderful is that we offer a one-stop solution for your entire family’s dental care needs. Whether you need a children’s dentist or if you need a root canal operation, you can find friendly and caring dentists at West 14 Dental.
We also understand that scheduling dental appointments for every single member of the family individually takes a lot of time. Our dentists are convenient as they can also schedule a visit for all family members at the same time. This means you don’t have to spend as much time waiting or scheduling appointments for your family on different days.
There is no substitute for a Saskatoon dentist who practices family dentistry and can recognize potential dental issues and quickly devise a treatment plan for your whole family. Children as young as three years old can be seen at West 14 Dental and every trip to us is an opportunity to have a professional examine your family’s teeth, and gain insight about oral health and disease prevention.
Dentistry for Adults
Dental care for adults comes with a variety of challenges, since age, use of medication, and the patient’s medical history of complicated dental problems have a direct impact on their oral health care needs.
Our dentists know that adults benefit from visual representations of their oral issues. Digital dental imaging tools can work great for showing patients the presence of calculus, cavities, or signs of other oral health conditions and gain their acceptance of their treatment plan. Having a patient co-diagnose an oral condition can be a great motivator to improve their oral health.
Dentistry for Kids
Our Saskatoon dentists know that to work with kids, you need to be gentle, patient, and fun-loving. This can help in easing children’s anxiety and making them feel confident and comfortable.
Our dentists ask many questions and gather information from the children directly which can help your kids feel less anxious and more cared for. They will also educate your children on how to properly brush and floss their teeth, and ensure long-lasting oral health.
Dentistry for Teens
Dentistry during the teen years is often a time where we will see patients with braces. Teenagers can also struggle with adopting healthy oral hygiene habits. It’s even more important than ever that your teen has a well-established, thorough hygiene routine including regular brushing and flossing, and regular dental cleaning appointments. Adolescence is also a good time to see if your child is experiencing any enamel erosion. We make it a top priority to work alongside our teenage patients to develop life long habits!
Our dentists see each member of your family regularly, which allows them to better identify their dental needs and take quick action. Moreover, lifelong dental care by the same people creates a relationship of trust.
