What Is Family Dentistry?
Family dentistry refers to dental services that address the needs of patients at every stage of life, from babies to seniors and everyone in between. Consider your family dentist the dental equivalent as a primary care provider. We’re your go-to for preventative care and most other dental issues. Should you need specialty care like oral surgery or endodontics, we can provide you with a referral to a specialist and work closely with them to ensure that you get the care you need.
Benefits of Family Dentistry
Dental Home for the Whole Family
Coordinating dental care for your family is much simpler when you all share the same dental home.
Every Age and Stage
There’s no “aging out” of seeing a family dentist, so you won’t need to find a new provider when your children reach their teens.
Preventative dentistry includes routine dental exams, dental cleanings, diagnostic services, and other treatments and procedures that keep your teeth and gums healthy. Seeing the dentist every six months for preventative care is one of the best things you can do for your smile!
Restorative dentistry restores health, function, and appearance to teeth that have suffered decay or damage. These procedures include dental fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
If your teeth are healthy, but you’re self-conscious about their appearance, cosmetic dentistry can help boost your confidence. We offer Invisalign, cosmetic bonding, veneers, and whitening treatments.
For your convenience, we also offer in-house periodontal care to treat gum disease and other concerns regarding the health and appearance of the gums.
Why Choose San Francisco Dental Wellness?
We take a holistic approach to dental care because we believe that the health of your teeth and gums is closely linked to your overall health. This means preventative care is the focus of what we do as a family dental practice.
