Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Redmond Smiles Family & Implant Dentistry provides expert dental care for your whole family, from your one-year-old baby to your elderly parent. The expert team at Redmond Smiles offer:

  • Regular exams, cleanings, and X-rays
  • Fluoride treatments to strengthen growing teeth
  • Orthodontics with Invisalign® to straighten teeth
  • Cavity treatment and fillings
  • Sealants to protect young and developing teeth from cavities
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Tooth replacement with implants, bridges, and dentures
  • Aesthetic treatments, such as whitening and veneers

When should my baby see a dentist?

Your child should see a dentist either by their first birthday or when their first tooth appears.

Your Redmond Smiles dentist knows how to make babies feel comfortable in the dentist’s office, which helps your child have lifelong positive feelings about dentists and oral care. Your dentist also uses your child’s first visit to teach you more about how to keep their mouth and teeth clean and healthy.

How often should I take my child to the dentist?

The team at Redmond Smiles Family & Implant Dentistry recommends that your child see a dentist every six months for an examination and cleaning to ensure that their teeth are developing normally. They also ensure that there are no signs of infections, cavities, or other problems.

They recommend yearly X-rays after the age of four. If your child has dental issues or needs orthodontics, you may need to see your dentist more frequently.

How do regular oral exams help my child?

Healthy, strong, straight teeth allow your child to chew food properly. Good oral health also promotes normal speech development.

During your child’s appointments, your dentist also takes time to talk to your child and teach healthy dental habits — such as brushing and flossing — that will keep their teeth and gums in good shape for life.

Is a family dentist better than a regular dentist?

Your life is easier when you use a family dentist because you can book all of your family members’ appointments at once.

Family dentists have experience that helps them understand children’s changing needs. The dentists and staff atRedmond Smiles Family & Implant Dentistry also understand that children can be afraid of dentists, so they take time to get to know your child and make each visit positive and stress-free.
