Elmhurst Dentist Reviews Services Family Dentists Provide

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Mar 7, 2016

Our Elmhurst dentists encourage dental patients to think of their family dentists as their partners in dental care. Our dental team strives to provide all of the services that patients need right here in our conveniently located office. Today we are going to be talking a little bit more about the various things that family dentists provide; let’s get started!

One of the key responsibilities of the family dentist is to provide preventive treatments to help dental patients avoid serious infections and damage. Preventive treatments include regularly schedule cleanings, topical fluoride supplements for those who need them, and X-rays to identify potential future problems.

Additionally, in our office we offer a number of restorative and corrective dental treatments to help people bounce back after experiencing dental problems. At Scharfenberg dental we do everything from filling simple cavities, to performing root canal therapy, to placing dental implants.

Because we can do so many things in our office, you benefit from true continuity of care. Because we are your family dentist, we already know who you are! We know your dental history, and your health needs. We are able to take your whole, long-term dental treatment plan into account when providing dental care.

Another benefit of working with a family dentist is that our office is equipped to treat patients of many ages—from kiddos to great-grandma. We can even help you coordinate the dental appointments of your various family members, to make things as streamlined and simple as possible for you.

If you are looking for a dentist that you can turn to, and a dental team that you can trust, our Elmhurst dentists are here for you. Feel free to schedule a personal consultation when you are ready to get started; we can give you all of the information that you need to make great decisions for your smile!
