What Exactly Is Family Dentistry?

Your family dentist in Houma, LA, can keep your family smiling.

Your family’s healthcare is important, including dental care. Family dentistry is a combination of dental services to maintain the health of your family’s smiles. Family dentistry services protect the smiles of all of your family members, from children to adults. Dr. Corey Porche of Porche Dental Care in Houma, LA, offers a wide range of dental services for all of your family members to keep your family smiling.

When you choose a family dentist, you will enjoy the convenience of going to one dental office for all of your services, because your family dentist can do it all. You will also enjoy saving time because your family dentist often can see more than one family member at a time. This means less time spent away from work or school.

These are just a few of the services available at Porche Dental Care:

  • For children, your family dentist provides that all-important first visit when your child is about a year old. This visit lays the foundation of trust and comfort that will make future appointments easy. Preventive services for children include cleanings, fluoride treatments, oral hygiene instruction, and other services, designed to protect your child’s smile.
  • For older children and teenagers, preventive services include all of the services listed above, plus dental sealants, to protect permanent teeth from tooth decay. If tooth decay does happen, your family dentist is an expert at restoring damaged teeth with fillings or other restorations.
  • For adults, preventive services are a mainstay of adult dental care too, along with restorative treatments like fillings and crowns. Teeth take a beating as you age, and damage can happen. You may also lose teeth, which is why your family dentist also provides a full range of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, bridges, and dental appliances.
  • Your family dentist also provides a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry services, to give you the beautiful smile you want. Professional teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, dental bonding, and porcelain veneers can give your smile the boost it needs.
