The Trusted Family Dentist in Plano
Maintaining optimal oral health is important at any age. But even if you brush and floss daily, oral health hazards can still quietly develop -- and when they do, issues like decay, infection, and other problems have consequences for your teeth and gums. That’s why family dentistry services are such an important cornerstone of the care we provide here at Antoon Family Dental! With wide-ranging care that covers even the youngest members of your family, Plano dentist Dr. Sam Antoon and his team will work hard to catch potential decay and damage as early as possible and keep your favorite smiles happy and healthy for years to come.
The Difference a Family Dentist Makes
What’s so great about a family dentist compared to any regular general dentist? It’s simple -- a family dentist provides comprehensive services that are suited for patients of all ages. That means everyone can visit the same office for high quality dental care, from the youngest smile in your family all the way to great grandma or grandpa. And when your whole crew gets to know and love one dentist and dental team, your life gets a lot easier. There’s no need to run all over town visiting multiple dental offices for excellent care. You may even find that children who were once nervous about visiting the dentist can grow to love someone they see their whole family trusts! That’s the difference a Plano family dentist like Dr. Antoon can make.
Prevention Keeps Smiles Happy
With the help of biannual checkups, our Plano team can keep a close eye on your teeth, ensuring that any potential problems are treated quickly and effectively. X-rays allow your dentist to get a peek below to visible surface of the teeth to catch issues that could be lurking without notice. During a thorough cleanings from one of our trusted hygienists, we will also be sure to get rid of any pesky debris or plaque. After the cleaning is complete, we will offer tips on better brushing and flossing if we notice any signs of concern or specific areas that need a little extra help.
In addition to preventive services, our family dentistry services include cosmetic treatments, restorative attention, and even emergency dental care when you and your loved ones need it most.
Quality Children’s Dentistry
What about your children? At our Plano office, we understand very well that little smiles often need a gentle touch, and our children’s dentistry services are all designed to offer that unique quality your son or daughter needs to feel comfortable with us. Children should visit the dentist for the first time around their first birthday, with regular checkups and cleanings beginning no later than age 3. Our team takes a friendly, welcoming approach that young children love! We want to make sure kids only take positive memories away from their time at Antoon Family Dentistry.
Kiddos benefit from the same preventive dental attention that you do -- including two additional preventive treatments, especially: topical fluoride treatments and dental sealants. Young smiles are most vulnerable to cavities between the ages of 6 and 14 or so, while their tooth enamel is still hardening. These treatments strengthen and shield the teeth from the food particles, acids, and bacteria that lead to decay. Best of all, fluoride treatments and dental sealants are completely pain-free and completed within minutes at the end of a regular checkup and cleaning.
Custom-fitted mouthguards are also available for patients from Plano and surrounding communities who want to protect their smile or their children’s smiles during contact sporting events. Sports injuries are one of the most common causes of dental emergencies, so we urge athlete patients of all ages to make this small investment to protect their oral health.
