Family Dentistry Q & A

What is family dentistry?

Family dentistry provides a one-stop-shop for all of your oral health needs, including routine checkups, preventive screenings, and more specialized care (when necessary).

By establishing care with a family dentist, you can significantly reduce the risk of common oral health problems and ensure a vibrant, beautiful smile. What’s more, by enrolling your children in family dentistry, you can teach them the importance of good oral hygiene from a young age. 

What services does family dentistry provide?

Dr. Gleaner and the team offer a complete suite of family dentistry services, including:

Oral exams

An oral exam is a checkup that assesses the health of your teeth, gums, tongue, and mouth. During an exam, Dr. Gleaner looks for signs of cavities, periodontal disease, or other potentially serious issues.

Dental X-rays

Dental X-rays use advanced technology to capture photos of your jaw and tooth roots. They can alert you to issues invisible to the eye, including pulp damage, deep cavities, and bone decay. 

Dental cleanings

A dental cleaning is an outpatient procedure that removes plaque and tartar from your teeth and beneath your gums. Dr. Gleaner and the team recommend undergoing a dental cleaning once every six months.

Cosmetic dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry uses special treatments to enhance the appearance of your smile. Dr. Gleaner offers several types of cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening, veneers, and dental bonding.

Orthodontics

Orthodontics uses custom oral appliances to improve the alignment of your teeth and jaw. Dr. Gleaner and the team offer orthodontic treatment to adults and teens with Invisalign. Invisalign is more discreet than traditional metal braces and can provide results in as little as 12 months*. 

Emergency dentistry

Emergency dentistry provides same-day diagnosis and treatment of potentially serious oral health issues. You might benefit from emergency dental care if you knock out a permanent tooth or damage a dental restoration. 

Restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry uses custom oral prosthetics to repair damaged or missing teeth. Dr. Gleaner and the team offer several types of restorations, including crowns, fixed bridges, dental implants, and composite fillings.

Non-surgical periodontal treatment

Non-surgical periodontal treatment uses antibiotics and other noninvasive measures to treat gum disease. Following an oral exam, Dr. Gleaner can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.

Who can benefit from family dentistry?

Anyone who wants to have healthy teeth and gums can benefit from family dentistry. Even if your mouth seems healthy, routine checkups can provide peace of mind and reduce the risk of issues in the future.
