Family DentistryGetting one person to the dentist can be difficult—getting everyone in the family to the dentist can often seem impossible! A family dentist offers dental services for patients of all ages at one practice, making it easier and more convenient to plan routine dental care for everyone in your household. Dr. Adam Burton, Dr. Viviana Pinto, and Dr. Alexandre Santi, your dentists at Northland Dental Centre in London, Ontario, offer a range of dental services for both children and adults.

Oral health concerns and needs evolve with age. Children and teenagers may need orthodontic treatment, while adults and senior seniors are generally more focused on preventing or managing the risks of gum (periodontal) disease. One of the main advantages of seeing a family dentist is the ease and convenience of getting everyone treated at the same location, cutting down on the time and costs associated with making multiple appointments throughout the year. For younger patients, building and establishing trust with a friendly dentist can help to decrease the risk of fear and anxiety that often prevents many people from getting preventive and even necessary dental care.

As with other health conditions, some oral health problems run in families, and going to a single dentist familiar with your background and family history can make all the difference when dealing with issues that another dentist may not know to look for or suspect.

Choosing one dentist for your entire family is a great way to consolidate appointments and save time. But you may wonder if there are family dentistdentists who can effectively treat families with young children, teenagers and their parents. In London, Ontario, Northland Dental Centre can do just that! Our team of dental professionals has the experience and training necessary to diagnose and treat people of all ages. We explain our approach to our various patients here.

Children

As children grow, their primary teeth, or baby teeth, begin to fall out to make way for their permanent set. This is a crucial time to have a family dentist, who will monitor the growth patterns of your child's teeth, apply sealants for added protection against cavities, and begin making plans for orthodontics if necessary. Establishing a routine with your London family dentist also gives children a good foundation for their future dental health.

Adolescents

The pre-teen and teenage years is a time of rapid growth for your child, and we're not just talking about their height and appetite! Their permanent teeth are starting to finalize their placement in the mouth. Regular checkups with your family dentist will also ensure that your teen is taking proper care of their teeth at home.

Adults

Since the adult teeth are typically finished coming in by the early 20's, your dental care as an adult might seem limited to cleanings and occasional cavity fillings. However, at Northland Dental Centre, we offer a variety of ways that adults can improve their teeth. From whitening to dental implants, you can use cosmetic and restorative treatments to give yourself the gift of a perfectly healthy smile.
