What is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry is all about ensuring that every patient receives quality dental care that meets the needs and challenges of their specific age group. This means customized, age-appropriate dental care for every child, teen, adult, and senior who visits our office. Dr. Weissich has experience with patients of all ages, and is passionate about providing personalized care to each of them.

How Family Dentistry Benefits You

Having a single dentist you can rely on to care for your entire family comes with numerous benefits. Since family dentists see a broad range of patients with different needs, you can expect them to be experienced and skilled in various services.

When it comes to your children, a family dentist can continue to care for them throughout their lifetime, while a pediatric dentist works exclusively with children. Having the same dentist builds confidence and trust, and their familiarity with your child’s history makes it easier to spot changes and detect problems quickly.

Having one dentist for an entire family also presents a unique opportunity for advanced care. The dentist gets to understand the health and challenges of each member and the family as a whole, which can help to identify genetic, environmental, or lifestyle influences on oral health.

Best of all, when you have one dentist for the whole family, you can have confidence that everyone receives the same high level of care.

Dentistry for Kids - Why It's Important

Children can benefit from pediatric dental visits starting at one year old, or within six months of the first tooth eruption. At our practice, our dentist will see patients as young as one year old. These early visits are important for several reasons, including:

  • Keeping the gums clean and free of infection
  • Monitoring the appearance and development of teeth
  • Promoting a healthy oral environment for the eruption of adult teeth later in life
  • Monitoring the development of the jaws

Your child's baby teeth are vitally important to lifelong dental health. These first teeth help your child develop speech skills, and the ability to bite and chew. The childhood teeth also hold a place as the adult teeth emerge. And baby teeth help stimulate healthy gum and bone tissue. Therefore, it's really important to keep these first teeth clean and healthy.

It's also important for young children to get accustomed to the sounds, sights and smells of a dental office. Although some kids are nervous at first, it can really help to familiarize them with the experience. Our dentist and staff are patient and compassionate with our pediatric patients. We want them to develop a positive view of routine dental care.

Adult-Focused Dental Care

Just as children need devoted attention to ensure a healthy smile, adults also face unique challenges, and both need and deserve quality dental care. Dr. Weissich offers holistic dental care tailored to you and your personal needs.

What is Holistic Dentistry?

A holistic approach to dentistry is about treating the person as a whole, not just their symptoms. We take the time to get to know each patient as an individual to better understand their oral health, overall health, and the challenges that affect both.

Many people don’t realize that dentistry isn’t simply about your teeth. Your oral health is strongly connected to the rest of your body and has a significant impact on your health overall. As a holistic dentist, Dr. Weissich takes the time to understand this connection and provide treatment that benefits your entire well-being.

Every treatment we provide is completely personalized. When planning treatments, Dr. Weissich considers your goals, concerns, situation, and lifestyle to provide treatment that uniquely caters to your needs. This often includes everything from providing consistent in-office care to helping you do your part at home with good hygiene and nutrition planning.

Dental Care for Seniors

Many people assume that tooth loss is inevitable with aging. However, this is not the case. While seniors face many age-related changes that can make tooth loss more likely, it is possible with attentive dental care for seniors to enjoy healthy smiles well into their golden years.

The most important thing to pay attention to is gum health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, and the risk for gum disease increases in seniors. It’s also common for seniors to face issues with side effects of medication. If they struggle with mobility or performing daily tasks, oral hygiene will naturally be impacted as well.

Dr. Weissich works with senior patients to help them identify their oral health risks and understand how to deal with them. He also provides restorations, such as dental implants, to help those dealing with tooth loss to enjoy a stable, appealing smile.
