Family Dentistry

Rocklin Family Dental Services

Family dentistry involves routine preventative dental and periodontal care as well as standard treatments, such as fillings and crowns.
Some of the varied oral health services and procedures that fall under the category of family dentistry are as follows:

  • Dental cleanings
  • Dental checkups (including X-rays, examinations, etc.)
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Dental sealants
  • Cavity filling
  • Gum disease treatments

Our approach at Sunset Oak Dental:

Our approach to family dentistry emphasizes routine dental care and preventative treatments so that you and your children can prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Ultimately, preventative care means less pain and less money spent down the road. If you see us every six months, you may not ever need any additional dental services!

Tips for taking your child to the dentist:

Whether you’re taking your child to the dentist for the first time (which the American Dental Association recommends doing between the time your child cuts their first tooth and your child’s first birthday), or preparing an older child for a routine dental visit, you can help ensure they have a positive experience if you follow a few simple guidelines.

  • Before arriving, describe going to the dentist in positive terms, like “healthy” and “fun.”
  • Try to schedule an appointment in the morning, when children are typically more cooperative and well-rested.
  • Never bribe your child to go to the dentist or use a dental visit as a threat or punishment.

Make sure you take your child to the dentist at least every six months. Call us today to schedule your child’s first dental visit
