When was the last time you saw the dentist for a routine checkup?

You want to do everything possible to keep you and your family’s smiles healthy. Along with proper at-home oral care, it’s also incredibly important that you see our Troy, MI, family dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey for routine exams and cleanings. Wondering just how often your family needs to come into our office in order to keep their smiles healthy? The answer might surprise you.

Twice a Year

Two dental visits a year is the magic number. Everyone, including children, should visit their Troy, MI, family dentist every six months if they want to maintain healthy, beautiful smiles. Even if you swear that you are the best brusher and flosser in the Troy area you still need to complement your at-home oral care routine with regular checkups performed by our experienced family dentists and their team.

Dr. Carmody and Dr. Halsey are highly skilled, attentive family dentists that are proud to provide comprehensive dental care to families around the Troy, MI, area. Here at Rochester Dental, we are 100 percent committed to every individual that comes through our doors, whether they are one year old or 100 years old! Dental care starts early, so you should start bringing your child into the office around their first birthday (even sooner if their teeth start to erupt before one year old).

We provide families with everything they need including customized treatment plans that focus on addressing certain issues or risk factors that could predispose you or someone you love to gum disease, tooth loss, and other oral problems. These visits with your family dentist are important as it’s the best way to prevent health problems from occurring.

These six-month checkups include

  • Comprehensive oral health exam
  • Annual x-rays
  • Prophylactic oral cleanings to remove plaque and tartar
  • Oral cancer screenings
  • Detecting dental problems early

Have you made the switch to a family dentist? Selecting one dentist for your entire family can save you time and help you improve yourfamily dentist oral health. Troy, MI, family dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey provide a variety of services you and your family need for healthy smiles.

Family dentists offer the ultimate in convenience

Are you the unofficial chauffeur for your family? If you're the designated driver for dental appointments, you may spend more time than you prefer ferrying your children, parents or other family members to appointments. When everyone sees a different dentist, you'll spend more money on gas, put more miles on your car and quickly deplete your paid time off at work.

Luckily, you can simplify your life by selecting a family dentist. Multiple trips for checkups and cleanings will no longer be needed when the entire family visits the same Troy dentist. In fact, you can even schedule a group checkup to make your life easier.

Family dentists offer important advantages

Family dentists treat oral health problems and conditions that affect the entire family, from toddlers to senior citizens. They're just as skilled at diagnosing a developmental issue in your 7-year-old as they are helping your mother find an effective tooth restoration option.

Some kids love visiting the dentist the first time they step into the office. Others are more reluctant and may find the experience a little frightening. Family dentists and their staff know how to put young patients at ease and make dental appointments a pleasant experience. The positive relationships they forge with your children will help ensure that your kids feel comfortable during their appointments, whether they're visiting for a filling or a checkup.

Your family dentist doesn't just treat cavities but also offers a variety of treatments and services that protect your oral health and enhance your smile, such as:

  • Crowns to restore and protect damaged teeth or improve their appearance
  • Bridges, dentures and dental implants to replace missing teeth
  • Bonding to repair damage or conceal imperfections
  • Veneers to hide flaws, cover gaps or change the shape or length of teeth
  • Invisalign, clear removable braces for adults and teenagers
  • Sealants to protect your children from developing cavities in pre-molar and molars

Protect your family's smiles with regular visits to your family dentist. Call Troy, MI, dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey at (248) 528-0700 to schedule an appointment.
