Finding a family dentist is one of the most important health care decisions a parent has to make. The last thing you want to do is to have to cart each family member to a different location in order to get them the quality dental care they need. Having a family comes with enough demands and constraints to your time and schedule without your Reading dentist office adding more to it.
Dr. Sadeghi and her family-friendly staff at First Dental Associates understands that you need a family dentist who can provide oral health care for each member of your family, keeping in mind that different age groups have different needs. First Dental Associates has the training, experience, and expertise to provide dental care for every member of your family, from your two-year-old to Grandma and Grandpa. So you can get all your family dentistry needs under one roof. And with evening and Saturday hours, First Dental Associates can work around your busy schedule.
The biggest issue concerning the youngest members of your family is tooth decay. Since kids don’t have the best oral hygiene habits, and their food choices aren’t always the healthiest, they are more likely to develop cavities than other members of your family. As a result, preventive care is most important for children.
Although establishing a strong brushing and flossing routine starts at home, it is very important to bring your kids to our office in Reading, MA for regular cleanings and examinations. Our thorough cleanings will help prevent cavities, and our detailed examinations will allow us to catch any potential issues before they become major problems.
Also, the more your children become accustomed to seeing their dentist at an early age, the less likely they are to develop dental anxiety when they are older. At First Dental Associates we will see children as young as two. So get them in here soon and often.
By the time your children are older, they will have a new set of oral health concerns, but tooth decay will still be among them. Since your teenagers are likely to be involved in afterschool activities, they will be having more of their meals away from home. Hopefully, they will make wise food choices, but teenagers aren’t exactly known for making wise choices. That is why it is important to make sure their healthy oral hygiene habits are cemented firmly in place. You may not be able to stand over their shoulders when they eat, but you can make sure they are brushing and flossing, as well as coming in for regular checkups at First Dental Associates.
The teenage years are when teeth alignment becomes an issue, as well. The traditional metal and wire braces that are commonly used to straighten teeth may not be very appealing to teenagers who are already sensitive about their appearance. Invisalign invisible braces are perfect for this situation. Not only are they clear, which makes them hard to see on your teeth, but they also are removable, which makes them easy to clean.
By the time you reach adulthood, even when you have been diligent about oral hygiene your whole life, you may find wear and tear taking its toll on your smile. Even if your teeth are healthy, they may not look their best because the constant use your teeth sustain can lead to chipping and discoloration.
Thankfully, First Dental Associates is here with the cosmetic dentistry procedures you need to get your beautiful smile back. Dental bonding will fix chipped teeth, while teeth whitening will put the luster back in your smile. If you have multiple cosmetic issues, then dental veneers can deal with them all with one solution.
There is no need to make do with a smile that doesn’t make you happy. Cosmetic dentistry is about more than appearance. It’s about feeling good about the way you look. When you have a bright smile you love to show off, your confidence will fill the room, energizing yourself and those around you.
When it comes to the senior members of your family, the importance of oral health care cannot be overstated. Nutrition is a major issue for senior citizens, and a nutritious diet depends greatly on your ability to chew healthy foods. Unfortunately, tooth loss is a common dental ailment for older people, which means they may have trouble chewing healthy foods, so they will often choose softer foods that are overly processed and less nutritious.
First Dental Associates provides a variety of teeth replacements. Dental implants will give you the strongest chewing power because they are held in place by a synthetic root placed directly into your jawbone. As a result, implants most closely match your natural teeth. Dental implants can even be used to anchor a set of dentures to your jaw, which means you won’t have to worry about your dentures falling out when you need them most.
As you can see, First Dental Associates, right here in Reading, MA, can provide quality dental care for your entire family. Call our family dentist at 781-435-7290 today to schedule an appointment, or simply fill out our online form and one of our associates will contact you.
