All ages are welcome at Foy Aesthetic and Family Dentistry. Dr. Foy has five children and wants every patient who comes into the office to feel like they are part of his family. General dentistry is vital to overall oral health, which is why experts recommend seeing a dentist every six months. The best way to keep your smile looking gorgeous is to schedule regular general checkups.
What age does a child need to start seeing a dentist?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children start seeing a dentist by age one or around six months after their first tooth erupts. Dr. Foy and the team at Foy Aesthetic and Family Dentistry are comfortable with patients of all ages. We would be happy to start a lifelong relationship with your child as we care for their oral health.
What is general dentistry?
General dentistry consists of regular professional teeth cleanings, mouth examinations, x-rays of teeth and jaw bones, and other run-of-the-mill checks. Preventative dentistry keeps you from having to spend precious time and money fixing costly and painful tooth problems, such as cavities, root canals, and more.
General dentistry also includes basic dental care such as cavity fillings and crown placement, as well as restorative care to keep fillings and crowns effective. At Foy Aesthetic and Family Dentistry, we provide fantastic general dentistry for your whole family.
Professional Teeth Cleaning
A professional teeth cleaning at Foy Aesthetic and Family Dentistry will give your teeth a pampering deep clean, but that’s not the only reason to come to us for your teeth cleaning needs. Teeth cleaning gets rid of plaque buildup on teeth, a sticky film made of bacteria, that can damage your teeth and cause cavities.
Other buildups, called tartar or calculus, also need to be removed for maximum oral hygiene. These layers require professional tools and training to remove without causing damage to your enamel. Our team can provide great teeth cleaning and keep your smile looking good for years to come!
