A healthy mouth is an asset for life. Good oral health gives you healthy teeth and gums, leading to a bright, confident smile. Additionally, it’s easy to chew food and you don’t have mouth pain. Starting young establishes a positive foundation for life.
Dental Arts of Edgewater in Edgewater, New Jersey, specializes in family dentistry. Our pediatric dentist, Dr. Jessica Listwa, helps the little ones feel comfortable, while Dr. Michael Moawad ensures teens and adults have excellent dental care.
Besides the obvious benefit of maintaining good oral hygiene for your family, choosing a family dentist practice has other benefits. Our team shares four of those here.
With a busy family schedule, the easier it is to make dental appointments, the better. With family dentistry, you don’t have to worry about coordinating different dentist offices but can make all your appointments under one roof. You can even book multiple appointments on the same day.
Each family member has specific dental needs, so a family dentist addresses a range of dental concerns. From introducing your youngest to dental care to adolescent braces to root canals, we cover a wide variety of dental issues.
When you start and stay with the same family dentist, we get to know you and vice versa. We can track your oral health over time and spot potential issues early. When your children are growing and their jaws are developing, we can spot a potential problem, such as a misaligned jaw, and correct it before it’s too late.
3. Creates a positive association
Building a good oral hygiene habit early in life pays dividends in terms of maintaining a healthy mouth and holding on to those natural teeth later in life. Family dentistry introduces children while they’re young to proper brushing and flossing to establish healthy habits.
Family dentists have experience working with children to make their appointments positive and reduce dental anxiety. Once your child’s teeth emerge, it’s time to introduce dental care.
4. Healthy habits
Family dentistry helps every member of your family build healthy habits. From education around proper teeth brushing, flossing, and lifestyle habits, we help your family protect your teeth and gums for life.
