Family Dentistry Q&A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry is dental care catered to all ages. At Crystal Dental of Fresno, the team provides family dentistry services so they can treat every member of your family with focused care for each age group. As you age, your oral health needs change significantly. Family dentistry addresses these changes and differences so you can be sure that you and your child’s oral health are covered.

Another key part of family dentistry is addressing the specific needs that kids have when going to the dentist. Kids might feel scared about going to the dentist, even for routine cleanings. The family-friendly team at Crystal Dental of Fresno works to settle these fears and make kids and their parents comfortable during appointments. 

When should kids start visiting the dentist?

You should bring your kids in for their first dental visit before their first birthday or when their first tooth erupts. The first tooth usually appears around six months after birth, and it’s a great reminder to make a dental appointment. 

Children are prone to getting cavities from an early age, and the team at Crystal Dental of Fresno can help you start your child’s life with great oral hygiene habits. They can also answer your questions about oral care at home and help you plan your child’s diet to limit sugary, cavity-causing foods. 

When you bring your kids in for dental checkups, the team at Crystal Dental of Fresno recommends bringing toys, snacks, security blankets, and other objects that might make them feel at ease. The team evaluates your child’s oral health and checks for early signs of complications, just like in your regular exams.
