Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry refers to dental services that meet the needs of individuals of all ages, from children to the elderly. Family Tree Dental Care emphasizes the importance of dental care in all stages of life and welcomes families into the office for all oral health needs and preventive care. 

Kids don’t need quite the same routine dental care as adults, and your oral health risks increase with age. At any stage of life, you might struggle to keep track of the routine dental care you need all on your own. Dr. Hong makes sure you and each member of your family stays on track with age-appropriate oral health care. 

By bringing your whole family to Family Tree Dental Care, you can avoid the hassle of choosing multiple dentists for your family according to the ages they treat. Dr. Hong provides pediatric dental services alongside a wide array of adult dental services and even includes cosmetic dentistry in her practice. 

Which services does family dentistry include?

Family Tree Dental Care offers oral hygiene services and preventive care for your teeth and your children’s teeth. She encourages you to schedule visits for:

  • Cleanings every six months
  • Exams every six months (during your cleaning appointments) 
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Dental sealants
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Gum disease treatment
  • Digital X-rays 
  • Orthodontic consultations for Invisalign®
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Dental implants
  • Cosmetic smile design (with teeth whitening, bonding, and other services)

Some services, like dental sealants, are primarily available for children. During your appointments, Dr. Hong talks to you or your child about how to make oral hygiene a priority at home. She teaches your family the most effective brushing and flossing techniques and can teach you to care for restorations or orthodontic devices too. 

What are comprehensive dental exams?

Six-month dental exams aren’t quite the same as comprehensive exams, which are more in depth. Dr. Hong encourages you to visit Family Tree Dental Care for these, too. During a comprehensive exam, she uses state-of-the-art technology and imaging to evaluate the muscles and joints of your jaw, the alignment of your teeth, and soft oral tissues. 

Your comprehensive exams include a preclinical exam, an extraoral exam (outside your mouth), and an intraoral exam (inside your mouth). Dr. Hong records her findings from these exams and talks to you about them one-on-one with consideration to your medical history. She also includes X-rays to see your teeth and jawbone beneath the gums. 

According to her findings, Dr. Hong may recommend treatments and services that will benefit your long-term oral health and functioning.
